      Default Glowing in the dark thread - which one?

      Since Halloween is coming, I found some great projects where people talk about how they use glow in the dark thread. But unfortunately no one posts the brand they use.
      I'm specifically looking for machine embroidery thread. Of course, I've been doing some online researching but there doesn't seem to be a clear winner. So maybe you'd be so kind to share the brand you prefer?
      sincerely yours, Kate

      I have not used this type of thread. Have you inquired with those who have posted the projects which brand(s) they use?

      I have some from Coats and Clark that I have had a while. But I believe you can find it on Amazon if you type it in their search bar or try JoAnn's for it.

      Thanks for recommendations, windstar! I'll have a look at them. Actually, I've already checked JoAnn's for it, but wanted to ask - have you had any issues with ironing? As I understand, they are easy to melt since it's a 100% polyester.

      Thanks for your reply, la_cole! Unfortunately, in those guides that I found there's no mentioning of which thread was used for the particular project. I've left a few comments asking kindly to clarify the brand, still only one seamstress replied to me and told me that she used glowing threads from Sinbel. But I've never heard about those threads before and couldn't find them in my local stores. So before leaping in and ordering some on Amazon, I decided to ask is there anyone that have used glowing threads before (since they probably have more experience than me!) in case they might have any recommendations - as I couldn't find any feedback on these threads on other sewing forums.
      sincerely yours, Kate

      How sad that none of those using glow-in-the-dark thread would take the time to respond to inquiry. There does appears to be a wide price range of this thread!
