No, not with the heavier 30 wt & 12 wt threads. There is too much thread to fit through the clearances around the shuttle. The rest of the Sulky thread line can be exactly matched, but many times a finer weight of the same thread is preferred because more of it fits on the bobbin. Try 40 wt Rayon or Poly Deco in the bobbin when running Holoshimmer, Sliver, or Metallic in the top.
