Dear Jan,
What is the heaviest thread I can use on my Memory Craft for Professional-Style Embroidery? -Anonymous

Dear Anonymous,
We usually use 50-weight thread for most applications. However, heavy fabrics (denim, bath towels, sweaters, etc.) may need 30-weight thread/80 needle to fill the design properly. Metallic threads are available in 30, 40 and 60 weight and all can be used on the Memory Craft machines. Luny thread is also available for embroidery. This thread is lightweight yarn and is great for animals, flowers etc. and resembles crewelwork when stitched out.
