First I love my new (to me) Janome DC2011 but my confession is that even though it has a thread cutter, I still use my scissors. Hubby thinks I am crazy but I am so used to grabbing them that it is hard to break it. It took me a while to get used to the needle up/down feature as I was used to having to move the wheel to move the needle. BTW, I love that feature and I LOVE, yes must be caps, the 1/4" foot! How did I live without it?
Ok, that is all I have to confess, back to sewing!
