    [quote=DogHouseMom] The only thing I have noticed about thread is that my Janome doesn't like different thread top and bottom. Other than that ... I need to pay more attention.


    My Janomes - Gold and Platinum will take Bottom Line in the bobbin (I buy Superior Threads prewound) but not as the top thread. I use Aurifil 50wt or Masterpiece 50wt as top thread.
    Whereas, my Bernina takes BL top and bobbin.

    None of my machines like Coats and Clark. I use Gutermann and Auriful.

I have been using light brown for both top and bottom thread and no problems at all and it is Dual Duty also.

    I think I read that Coats and Clark recently changed the place their thread was made...

    Try 100% cotton. There is a thread called MACHINE QUILTING Use the same "name" on both top and bottom.
    I use it for sewing blocks together, everything.

    um...maybe your problem is the thread has to go through packed fuzz changing the actual tension.

    Clean the fuzz out of your bobbin. Take the case out and go behind it, also take the big plate off. Clean the felted fuzz that lodges around the teeth too. You will likely find more fuzz than you think you willl

    I think Gutermann is one of the best threads around. :-D
