Look at the photo above. The machine is threaded with nylon thread and it's hard to see in the photo. It almost feels like a fine hair, if that makes any sense.
In this photo, you can barely see where it's coming off the spool. Actually, it look like white thread when it's on the spool--white thread with a sheen.
In this photo, you can see where I serged the edge with white, but it's hard to see the invisible stitching about 3/8" to the left of the serge.
You can iron over invisible thread just as you would any other thread. It does have a small amount of stretch to it so you need to go as slow as possible when you're winding your bobbins to minimize this. (I haven't found pre-wound bobbins with nylon thread yet.) I thought the ends of it may feel "itchy" when they stick out, but, so far, we haven't been able to feel them at all!
Saving money on thread--saving time by not having to switch thread--that Works for Me!
