Re: Loose thread loops on top and bottom of embroidery
Unfortunately the design stitching on the golf towel was very loose too.
To test the golf towel design on the 11000SE I took a hand towel that is not as thick as the golf towel, hooped it and it is stitching fine on the 11000SE (with the exception of some thread breaks). I have another hand towel that I'll hoop and stitch on the 15000 before I do the golf towel again. That way I will be comparing apples to apples and if they both stitch out well I'll have a matched set of hand towels.
I did test a built in design on a terry baby bib using the KK2000 to see if it acted up and had no problems at all, so I am suspecting that the design isn't a great one! but I have never had stitching problems like that on any of my Janome's before with any designs.
