Hi there,

I have a Janome Coverpro and I love the results I've been getting with my binders. It looks very professional inside and out. However, I notice that the inside of the binding feels kind of scratchy against my skin. It's probably because I'm just using regular Gutermann thread, but I'm not sure what the best alternative choice would be. Maxilock? Any other ideas?

Thanks!

You can use wooly nylon in the bottom thread. I haven't done it yet, but know it is possible and is much softer.

I use wooly nylon quite often, as it is softer, and does not unravel as easily.
