Reference Guides

We can help!

Do you ever have a question that even Google can’t seem to answer?  Well, if it’s about thread, quilting, sewing, or needles we have answers.  Not only do we have hundreds of education articles, we have great infographics, videos and reference guides.

Today I want to share a few of my favorite reference guides with you.

Thread Reference Guide – Home Machine and Longarm Machine

  • These two guides contain a host of information about what needle size and tension settings to use when sewing with Superior Threads. These reference guides detail the thread line, weight, needle size, and top tension suggestion.  Often, needle size recommendation can be found on the label of the spool or cone of our threadlines as well.

Troubleshooting Guide

  • If your thread is breaking, shredding, or doing anything else naughty, this is the go-to reference guide.  It’s a simple step-by-step guide, which helps to resolve thread issues. It has saved me from a lot of hair pulling!

Color Compatibility Charts

  • Can you use a different thread in the bobbin than the top?  Absolutely!  To help you find the closest color match, we have several color compatibility charts to help you find colors across different lines.

Bobbin Compatibility Guide

  • If you haven’t tried a prewound bobbin yet, let me tell you a secret...  Save yourself the time of winding bobbins and try a prewound today!  Eliminate searching for an empty bobbin, winding it, and hoping the tension is right.  With a prewound bobbin, you can get straight to sewing and quilting  Our Bobbin Compatibility Guide is constantly updated (thanks to our fantastic customers keeping us informed of what bobbin type their machines use) to help you quickly find the bobbins you need for your machine. 

All of these reference guides can be printed and added to your sewing or quilting binder and shared with your friends.  Hope you enjoy.  Do you have a favorite go-to reference guide?
