Question about Janome 1600P-DB Mechanical Sewing Machine
Well, I have owned the Janome 1600DP with the Gracie Frame for 3 years now and have only successfully quilting 3 quilts. Its very intimidating how easily the thread breaks!!!! Add hot flashes with the frustration and I've almost given up. Today, I think I have found something. I cleaned the bobbin case, cleaned between the discs, put in a new needle (using the one recommended) but I put the spool of thread in a coffee cup located at the non-sewing end of the machine, sitting it on the Gracie Frame. Then the thread is through the metal eye ring that came with the frame. All the rest of the threading is per the Janome instructions. So far, so good. There you have it but if I had to purchase a sewing machine again for quilting quilts, it would NOT be a Janome!!!

Have you tried to use a different type of needle such as a metallic ? this type of needle has a larger eye than regular and helps to keep some of my embroidery threads from breaking. also can you sloe the speed of the machine down? i sometimes found this helped me in embroidering. hope this helps.
