Our experts are often asked, "Which brands of thread will work best for quilting on my Janome?"
When it comes to quilting, where your thread may be feeding through your sewing machine at 1,000 stitches per minute, not all threads are created equal. But there are a number of high quality brands that will give you excellent results when you use them for quilting. One of those is Iris thread made by Hilos.
Because Iris Thread runs so well in your Janome sewing machine, we've partnered with them to bring you Iris Ultra Cotton Quilting Thread in a custom Horizon gift box, which includes 12 mini king spools of premium quilting thread, as well as individual mini king spools.
Quilting fabrics are usually made from 100% cotton, making pure cotton thread the traditional choice for your quilting machine. Iris quilting thread is highly mercerized, meaning it's had special processing to give it a smoother surface and improved luster.
When you put in extra hours to make your quilt project its very best, it makes good sense to use an excellent quality thread like Iris. Using top quality raw materials, Iris is the only company manufacturing this type of thread in North America. Their threads are known for strength, tenacity, brilliant sheen, and the ability to run smoothly in all major sewing and embroidery machines
