Addendum April 20 2013: Jim wrote in asking what type of thread to use. I always use upholstery thread. The only one I can find is the Gutermann brand, and it is pricy but very good. Being 100% polyester it should last a good long while, resist mould, not break down with water and be extremely durable. I cannot break it with only my hands, and it will cut your hand if you use sufficient effort. There are not so many colours available but any colour I have wanted was available. I buy it from my local sewing store.
While you can use near any thread with a regular flatbed sewing machine, the patcher seems to require a robust thread or it will shred and break. Use upholstery thread.
