    Remember a few weeks ago when I was having trouble with embroidering on my Janome 11000--it was skipping stitches and didn't look good on the back? Well, finally got it in the shop this week. The bobbin tension was off because I was using a different brand of bobbin thread. They adjusted it and said it's working perfectly now. So I will pick it up next week and hopefully start embroidering again. I'm glad it was something simple.

    The original bobbin was one the store wound and put in and I'm not sure what brand it was. But I ran out and started using the Janome bobbin thread that came with the machine and apparently it's slighty thicker. The shop I bought the machine at doesn't carry Janome thread, she likes the other stuff better but said she would order it for me when I'm ready if that's what I want. She also said if I switch to a different bobbin thread brand, they'll adjust the bobbin tension again for me. I have unlimited classes and 2 years free service on the machine. They're really great.
