Glide is a 40wt polyester thread from Fil-Tec. The thread is made with Advanced Trilobal Technology that allows it to maintain consistent tension throughout each and every spool. The results are high quality, consistent stitch formation, fewer thread breaks, and fewer machine stops. The thread runs virtually lint-free and has a wonderful eye catching sheen.
Use it for machine quilting or machine embroidery. It will work equally well doing either or both.

Glide thread is great with my Handiquilter Avante. I have used Glide thread for the past several years in the top and bobbin areas. I often use two different colors, one in the top and one in the bottom and have no problem with tension. My only warning is that the colors on line are very different from the actual thread colors. So purchase a Glide color chart. They are costly, but are a must if you want to match colors.
