Does anyone know anything about Singer Fusion thread?  The lady at JoAnn's told me that if the item that was sewn with this type of thread was washed and/or dried it would fall apart.  However, this thread its 70% Poly and 30% Cotton.  I think that she doesn't know what she's talking about but then again I could be wrong.  They also sell it in like multipacks at Kmart and places like that.  Which you would think that if they sell it as a general thread in a discount department store that it would be usable for anything and able to be washed as well.  Does anyone have any idea or experience with this type of thread?

Thank you for all your help

I think what she was trying to say is "this is really cheap crappy thread, you'll be sorry if you use it".

Thread is one place you don't want to scrimp, the cheap stuff can gunk up your machine, disintigrate while wearing, and tends to even look overly fuzzy. Coats & Clarks is $3 a spool and worth every penny, Mellita & Gutterman are even better and beautiful to boot. I have bought the $1 stuff at Walmart- learn from my experience & save yourself the heartbreak!
And really, $2 more on thread is not that huge in the grand scheme of things, it's at least 300 yards, that 10 dresses worth of thread.
$3 spool/ 10 dresses = 30 cents per dress in thread- see? not so expensive Smiley

Well she implied that because it is an fusing thread that, that is what causes things to fall apart.  I dunno.  I'll try it on something and see what happens, like a scrap or something.  We'll find out lol
