I had to post this...for those of you curious what we mean when we say Essential thread is a linty thread. THAT folks is a LOT of lint. This is just from piecing...I am making NINE dresden plate blocks (NINE!!!) and I am almost done piecing them together. Yes it's about ... let's see, nine times twenty is - 180 pieces plus about twenty or thirty that will go towards Etsy projects...so just over 200 or so blades/petals/spokes whatever you like to call them. THAT IS A LOT OF LINT for just piecing.
Don't get me wrong...I still like the color selection...and the the price is great. But when I say it's a linty thread, that's what I mean. After sewing with So Fine! for a few weeks and not doing much piecing this was a shocker to find in my bobbin area...and yes I cleaned it out before I started piecing because I had just finished free motioning up my Mother in Law's quilt. :)
Below is a picture before I swiped...doesn't look like much...but it is!! I hadn't even gotten the area to the left of this.
Below is the offending spool of beautiful, but messy thread!
If it doesn't matter to you - then no big deal. But if cleaning out that lint gets on your nerves...now you know what to expect. :)
