When I am running my test out on EditorPlus, can I thread top and bottom with dental floss on the Artista 200? Thank you.

Why do you want to use dental floss ?

If I test any design,I use the same type of fabric and embroidery threads I will use to embroidery the "real" embroidery design.

Thread is a lot cheaper then dental floss. You may just ruined your machine and the warranty with it.

No. It may fray and cause more trouble as in $$$ repairs.

Thread is not THAT expensive.
