After reading many reviews and speaking with Matt Grant I decided to try the T

Tenara heavy clear thread.


After reading all the reviews on line and talking to Matt Grant I decided to order some Tenara heavy thread for exterior canvas projects. I purchased the heavy because the size is close to the standard V 92. Ordered clear and was expecting something like fishing line but was surprised to see a twisted thread. Using it in a commercial Juki machine with a size 19 Serv 7 needle and pulling the thread off the top of the cone. After a few rows of stitching and tightening the tension about two turns it sews just like any other thread. Saws through two lares up to 8 lares with no further adjustment needed. Very happy with the purchase after hearing so many people say it was hard to sew with and skipped stitches. So far no skipped stitches when using straight stitch. Have not tried zig zag yet. Should make my projects last a lot longer in the Arizona sun. It really isn't clear but a milky white. Think I will order the other colors.
