Re: Mono Poly thread from Superior

Pat, I think that I wound the bobbin on my 12000 or 7700 and used the foot feed so the speed would have varied some, but I know that I wouldn't have gone full speed as I know this thread can stretch as it is poly. I didn't know that you could buy monopoly in pre-wounds but if they come from Superior, I wouldn't hesitate to use them. The pre-wound I'm using on my HoopSisters embroidered blocks is from Teradon Embroideries an I purchased a box (144 bobbins of white) from Terri and Don Hansen at the Indian Embroidery Conference several years ago. I love them as they hold so much more thread than what I can wind on them myself, and they are so much less expensive than Janome's pre-wounds. I suggest you try them with a practices block and see how you like them first. Is your machine perscnity and troublesome? Mine has caused me no real grief with the exception on one bobbin case spinning out and my embroidery unit, which I've talked about in a previous post. The trouble was just bothersome at the time of the trouble.

Thank you, Cheryl. When you wound your own bobbin did you do it very slowly as Jim suggested? I was hoping maybe to use the prewounds from Superior so I could eliminate that risk of winding the stuff. Maybe I will give them a try with the yellow dot bobbin case.
I appreciate your sharing your experiences.
