I only use cream, which is always in my machine.

I have changed the thread before but still used the white bobbin.

I just got some metallic threads, so currently I have gold as my go-to thread. I keep my bobbin beige or white though (can't afford the good stuff for the backside of my project!)

Off white in my bobbin, but whatever desired color in my spool.

I mainly use heavy duty white. I can hold a sharpie next to the thread as the machine is going to color the thread if I need a different color. Although I do keep black heavy duty thread available

I usually use blue because it is my favorite color and a lot of my papers have some sort of blue in it.

|Posted: 3/9/2013 5:29:35 AM|White or black. Love both though I have also used colors.
|Posted: 3/9/2013 6:02:58 AM|
Black, white or red but I do use other colors too.
|Posted: 3/9/2013 8:16:53 AM|Right now I use gray a lot but I have several colors. I never change my bobbin - it is white.

I also have a question about sewing on a layout. Do you use a heavy duty needle or just whatever is in your machine?

I always have had white, but I like Wilna's pages with silver.

|Posted: 3/9/2013 10:32:32 AM|I usually use a white or cream. That reminds me that I need to drop by the quilting store to pick up a huge cone of cream thread in the hopes that I'll never have to change thread again (or for a VERY long time).

Cindy, I just use a regular needle.
|Posted: 3/9/2013 10:58:02 AM|
White and black but thinking about getting greay and off-white. When I quilted I ONLY used grey.
I use a regular needle and lengthen the stitch a little.
|Posted: 3/9/2013 11:26:17 AM|
I just use regular old all purpose thread and the needle in my machine. Just like with scissors, paper can dull the needle and fabric needs a sharp one, so you might want to have an extra to switch back and forth. Lots of people use the same one with no trouble though.

I don't sew on many paper projects, but I've been trying to incorporate more stitching into my cards and layouts. I have been using whatever thread is left on the machine from the last sewing project I worked on - it was a really beautiful grass green today.

|Posted: 3/10/2013 8:33:22 AM|I am embarrassed to say that I never knew you could just leave a plain white thread in the bobbin so that you only have to change the spool thread if you want to for different looks! Learn something new everyday here with the Peas! This will definitely make me use my sewing machine more!

I go through a phase with a colour! My last 10 or so projects have all had dark-yellow thread on them as that was on my machine. Before that it was gold thread. Before that it was aqua. If that colour doesn't go with my project I just don't stitch on that!
I guess for a standard colour I would have off-white thread - I got the most projects out of that when I had it on the machine! For that I also used upholstery thread rather than standard, as it was a little thicker and stood out more on my projects, so I liked the effect.

I most often use an off-white thread and bobbin as well. I use regular thread and needle. For me, heavy duty thread doesn't sew as nice on paper.
If I use colored thread on paper, I may or may not change the bobbin. Also, once I have colored thread in the machine, it tends to stay there awhile so I do the next several projects with aqua thread (or whatever color was in there).
