    Any spun polyester thread will do it! Many use gutermann threads... Stay away from cotton or mix as it will rot over time!

    Polyester thread all the way. Guttermanns is sold at Joanns, Don't know about wally world - the one near me doesn't have it. Try to stay away from coats and clark - I tried it once and really regretted it.

    for quilts or other minimal load gear get spools of 100%poly serger thread. either Toldi lock or Maxi Lock work for me with the maxi being stronger by a little.
