I mostly use Madeira for embroidery (because I have a lot of it) but like Robson-Anton too and have never had a problem with any brand I've tried.  Superior is wonderful too but seem very expensive.  I chose to purchase the full set of Madeira as I liked their storage system and that was important to me once I realized that my machine didn't seem to care which brand I used.
For sewing I've never had a problem with any thread either but like Aurifil best for piecing due to its strength and thinness.

I use polyester embroidery thread from ThreadArt. It sews perfectly on my 12000 and has a very nice sheen. Their prices are phenomenal.

Good Morning Fern
 Wonderfil makes a set of 40  multi coloured thread bobbins both Class A and Class 15 (the latter is suggested for the Janome machines)- available online, in my local quilt shops and at quilting fairs. Sets of one colour only are also available. Wonderfil a Canadin company and have online shop.
Superior threads (USA) have a vast range snd also detailed educational information in regard to threads- well worth the read.
There is no specific bobbin for the 12000 as far as I have read though there is some mention that the Class 15 are slightly different in size from the Class A and better suit Janome machines.
These are the two companies that I use as trust their thread integrity but am sure other reputable companies also are worth investigating.
I am in Australia and will purchase online direct from the afore mentioned companies if unable to purchase locally.
with regard
Ann

https://www.habanddash.com/displays/bobbin-packs.html.  That’s one of many sites.

 

I just typed in pre-wound bobbins colored thread and a lot of links popped up! 

 

The Janome machines class 15 bobbins (except for the Janome 1600 – which does not have the horizontal bobbin case. The manual (for the 15000) does not recommend using paper bobbins.

I like all thread.  I use different thread for different projects.  Like r.a. Rayon for fsl. Mettler silk finish cotton for thread art, sulky too.  All kinds of embroidery thread.  I love YLI for thread art couching and serging.  I was taught to use Gutterman for quilting and piecing still use it.  Coats and clark for repairs and sometimes hemming.  I use a range of poly for embroidery.  I love variegated thread.  I use it all, - isocord sulky mettler,  floriani metro pro, - all of superior threads thread , simthread embroidered nicely,  connecting thread essential, Madeira regular and supertwist. Aurifull too.  So my answer is i like all thread.  Sorry not helpful.  Lately it is R.A.

Just now 'found' this site, after a long time away from my Janome and stitching.  So glad to review all the questions and answers.  It's a plus to see Jim S and wife and their vast knowledge of machines and all.
