You can use Twisted Threads or Maxilock Swirls on my sewing machine!

We are often asked if it's possible to use the larger Twisted Threads or Maxi-Lock Swirls threads in a regular sewing machine.  The answer is YES! 

You can do this in a number of ways. The easiest is to position a thread stand behind your sewing machine.  Alternatively you could put the spool into a coffee cup so it doesn't bounce around and position it just behind your sewing machine, then thread the machine as usual.

It's also possible to transfer the thread to smaller spools.  This video tutorial demonstrates how to fill a bobbin and a spool from a cone of Maxi-Lock Swirls thread for use in a regular sewing machine.
