I am confused, I guess I have read too much, heaven forbid, I do not read everything I can find.
I do not know what thread to use, I have had fights with Guterman Thread in the past. However, I bought some Polyester spools, that match my silnylon, I do not want to buy black thread.
I do not understand about Coats & Clark Thread, it is Polyester core wrapped in Polyester, I do not understand why Polyester would be wraped with Pollyester.
On the weight of the thread, do I really need the heavier weight thread, will it work in my machine, without tangling or breaking unexpectedly? I am near the end of my life, I do not need equipment to last 10 years.
I am making a tarp, I am probably going to end up with something like a Monsoon/Typhoon for my HH Explorer. I dislike the Monsoon I have it is too heavy and dark for my taste, so I am going to make something I like a little better. I seem to be bogged down on the thread issue. I will be using the gear in storms on the coast, and sometimes in the snow (we have snow in our part of Canada 10 months out of the year).
Oh, I almost forgot, my vintage Brother Sewing Machine is from Japan, it was designed for the Japanese Market. I can not get a decent stitch length out of the machine.
What thread and what size needle, help please. I know several of you can answer my questions.
Thank you in advance.
