I have just got a new sewing machine and have not used one since schooldays (40 plus years ago)Could somebody advise on thread to buy for general purpose machining.
thankyou in advance.

you'll find the 900m spools of stretch polyester are the best & best value too-

if you intend to sew a lot, I'd recommend buying basic colours like black, white & cream, maybe pink or blue if sewing for kids in bulk boxes, as it works out a lot cheaper - check e-bay sellers etc & I also pick up cheap odds & sods of colours in the sewing thread sale box they tend to have near the til in good fabric shops/haberdashers
