Metro Sigma Thread Sale

Recommended Posts

I just recently used this on a customer quilt.  It ran very well, was strong with no breakage.  It does not show quite as  well as Glide so if the showy thread look is important I would use Glide.  Overall it is a good thread and you can hardly beat the price.

I have lots of Metro thread that I bought a few years ago, at the same time lots of people on the chat purchased it, too.  I don't know if it was "Sigma."  I just know it is Metro.  If it is the same thing, it is pretty nice and you can't beat the price.

Sigma is a new thread line that is stronger than the old Metro thread.  I never had a problem with the original Metro but many people did.  Sigma is similar to Superior Magnifico and is meant to compete with Glide, would be my guess.

I just used Magnifico on a quilt and really liked it, too. I also tried some Superior Twist on a stonehenge quilt and loved the look.  Its also a strong thread with no breakage.   My favorite is still Glide, which to me gives a more even (or dense) look to the stitching. I guess what I mean is as it comes off the cone, it is more smooth in texture  than either Magnifico or Sigma.  Magnifico and Sigma are similar in appearance both on the cone and on the quilt.  For a thread with shine, any of the above are really nice.  To me, it just comes down to which one is the best color for the project since they all perform about the same.
