Bonded Nylon Video

Posted: 5 September 2014 at 6 a.m.

Have you ever sewn on canvas, leather, denim, or upholstery fabric?  Sewing on thick fabric like these usually requires a heavy-duty sewing thread.  Our Bonded Nylon and Bonded Poly are created specifically for this type of heavy-duty sewing

For projects that will be exposed to heavy UV rays, we recommend Bonded Poly.  Polyester has better UV resistance than nylon.

What projects are on your wish list that could use a heavy-duty thread like Bonded Nylon?

    Too bad I didn't know about this thread before I constructed my 42 inch Rubik's cube from vinyl. It's held up for two years out in the elements, but who knows how long it would last with the right thread.

    Lynn, If you are using bonded nylon as the top thread, you should also use it in the bobbin. Winding it is the same as winding typical sewing thread on a bobbin. Depending on the thickness of the the thread, the bobbin tension may need adjustment. Tension on the top thread may need adjustment as well.

    Do you use bonded nylon in the bobbin also? Do you wind it the same way as usual? Do you need to adjust the upper tension? I mainly have used it on my bonis fur machine and it works great for fur hides.

    Tobi, Bonded polyester would be a great choice because it is a UV-resistant thread. You may consider using #138 or #207 since they are thick and sturdy. You will need needle sizes #125/20 to #140/22 for the #138, and #140/22 to #180/24 for the #207. If you have further questions, please let us know:

    Hi. I use bonded nylon for sewing patches onto horse winter turnouts. What would you recommend? It gets heavy use and foes thru webbing and cordura and nylon fabric.
