Tension With Eddington T90 Polyester Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I was using Coats Ultra Dee T90 Polyester thread and I been quite happy with it. now I'm doing more projects with mixed leather and heavy Cordura Nylon fabric with unusual colors where I do not need a hole lot thread for. So I was hunting for for some good small cone Polly thread and found at the Thread Exchange 2 ounce cones of bonded Eddington Polyester.

I really do like the look of the thread but I have some problems working with it. The bounding makes this thread much more stiffer then the Coats Ultra Dee I was using before. To get a proper stitch I have to increase the thread tension a lot and that leads to a undesired amount of puckering.

I already tried larger needles and I played with the pressure foot pressure, but I'm still not happy with the results.

Does anyone has a good tip what I could try the get the thread tension down or avoid the puckering in a another way?

oh... my machine is a Juki DNU-1541S if that matters...
