Just wanted to send a special "Thanks!" out to Jen ( http://cre8tivequilter.blogspot.com/) for the help I needed when I was so frustrated. Yep...all about the tread. Had some terrible problems with the needle thread breaking in the Janome. Cheap thread does not cut it, even to practice. Cause you can't practice if it doesn't work.....LOL
I don't know how she does all she does....but I'm just glad she does it all!
