I've been working on quilts almost continuously since last fall. The first quilt was a mystery quilt (still needs binding), bound a quilt that my grandmother made, and I working one a quilt for my son. I have been using Mettler Metrosene Poly and this thread seems extremely linty to me. Anyone else had an issue with this thread? I have been cleaning my machine every time the bobbin runs out and getting a huge pile of lint. I do realize that fabric makes a contribution. The lint pile is about the size of a nickel every time I clean. I've been taking the bobbin area completely apart cleaning the entire area around the bobbin case area, the feed dogs, and the presser foot. Now, that I'm thinking about I don't clean anything with the upper path and wonder if I should be.
What thread to you use that doesn't produce large quantities of lint? I will continue using the thread that I have until the box is empty but I'm willing to try a different brand.
Actually, I think the Mettler thread that I have actually produces more lint than the Dual Duty brand.
Please give me your thoughts on thread brands.
