"Hi, just got invited to join Manquilters, and it surprises me that there isn't as much interaction as I expected, many members haven't posted for years. What has your experience been to date?"

Monofilament Thread

I was working on a project this week, using monofilament thread, and it broke so many times I just gave up and used cotton thread instead. I adjusted the tension and tried three different brands of monofilament threads, but all resulted in the same "negative" results. It may have been because I was using a canvas back on my wall quilt, possibly too dense for the thread to pass? Any and all advice is welcome.See More

Welcome to The Community!

I created this site to give Men the chance to promote their quilting and share their experiences with the rest of the quilting community. Add as much content to this site as you wish. Think of it as your own little piece of the quilting world. Your personal getaway with other guys who quilt.


Ning has locked this group at a maximum of 150 members but I have 50 more guys pending. I DID NOT want to limit the number of members so I upgraded the account for $199/yr. I feel this site is well worth that in value to each and every one of us. Please consider donating to keep this site up and running.

EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS!
CHEERS!

Upload as many Photos as you wish! We all love seeing your work.

Use the Forum section to swap fabric, quilts and more. Also a good place to ask questions on techniques that you've been dying to know.

Use the Blogs section to tell us about your latest project or even some of the challenges you may be facing as a quilter.

Use the Events section to tell the rest of us about upcoming retreats, gatherings or events you may be attending.
