Tiger thread alternative

6 posts in this topic

I wanted to give props to a business. I found a very close alternative to tiger thread and a place that has started carrying it. It is called Serabraid made by Amann group. I have placed a couple orders now from southwest sewing machines out of Houston (713-977-6567 ask for Elizabeth) they have started keeping a few rolls on hand. I just placed an order for a color they did not have on hand but I guess the wholesaler in the states did, on Thursday or Friday and already have it on Monday. And maybe the best part is 2 500M rolls shipped come to $54. The size 1000 t90 is nearly identicle to 1.0mm tiger thread. And Southwest Sewing Machines has been an absolute pleasure to deal with

 

if you sounds like something you are looking for give em a call.  I have been so happy with the company I told them I would try to send a couple people her way. 

 

P.S. for some reason the top looks funny cause I copied a post that I put on another board.

We carry the Amann thread as well.   The Serabraid is super nice.    However, all colors are not available in all sizes from Amann, so you'll have to call and check for each size & color combination.

Not the greatest pic of the color card, but it might be helpful.

Even the stuff I ordered that came from Germany took only about a week.

How close is the Amann thread to Tiger thread? 

Is it bonded polyester?

Is it is flat and waxed like tiger?

I wish tiger had a couple more colors.  Other then that I really like tiger.

Thanks,

Phill
