i tend to agree w/you . . . but i do cheat & use thinner/cheaper cone thread in the bobbin when machine embroidering . . . why waste the good stuff!

but, a downside to using this thread is that a fair amount of lint does accumulate in the bobbin case - so it has to be blown/brushed out a little more frequently.
