I have been going through thread like it was water! But at several dollars a pop for each spool of heavy-duty thread, the costs were adding up! In comes cone thread, where I can get 1000 to 8000 yards on just one cone.
You can use cone thread on your average sewing machine by positioning it correctly behind the machine. There are two things to be aware of:
- Prevent the thread from moving out of position
- Ensure thread comes off the cone smoothly
