    I cannot answer your thread question because I have a Bernina, but I wanted to say

    CONGRATS ON YOUR NEW MACHINE!!!! I hope you have 100s of fun hours with it.

    Woohoo - a new machine!!!!!!!!!!! Don't you feel like a kid on Christmas?

    Don't know for sure about the thread either and I don't know what the thread is like, but I've read articles/projects where any "special" thread is wound up in the bobbin and you practically embellish the block upside down.

    Well, I was really excited until about an hour ago. I was embroidery along and all of a sudden the machine made a noise and error came up--I followed insturctions and took project out but now my hoop holder will not close all the way up and designs will not center. any suggestions?

    :thumbup: great that you got a new machine.. :thumbdown: too bad you are already having problems, hopefully they are just teething problems as Janomes are usually pretty good machines from what i hear...I also cant help you with your thread as i have only used Gutterman myself..

    Congratulations on your new machine. I have a Bernina and I use Isacord thread for embroidery.
