There is certainly more to thread than choosing a color to match your project. You can choose between a variety of threads and needles depending on the project you are making. There are lots of different types of threads- that includes different thicknesses and purposes those threads can serve. Generally, you want the thread to be a little bit weaker than the fabric you are sewing with as it is easier to repair a torn seam than it is to repair a torn fabric. For general sewing I like mercerized cotton. Mercerization is a process that makes the thread nice and shiny and resistant to shrinking. If I need something a little bit stronger, for example when sewing knits, or quilting weight woven fabrics, and need the fabric to be able to stretch a bit without breaking thread, I will go with all-purpose poly/cotton blend. Mettler is one of the two brands of sewing thread that I use. Mettler thread is suitable for both machine and hand sewing. It is super strong and durable, colorfast and has a lustrous sheen. Additionally, due to the long staple fibers, Mettler thread is virtually lint free- which will make your sewing machine very happy! 

Note: Mettler silk finish cotton thread is a bit thicker than Gutermann. Keep that in mind when threading your machine. 
Recommended Sewing Machine Needle Size: 80/12 and 90/14. 

This Mercerized Cotton thread is really suitable for most fabrics, for hand or machine sewing.
