I just got Big Bertha back from the shop--$83 for her snit about the buttonholes. I noticed that the lettering, especially the script is really strange; like before when I sent her in (which tells me this is inherent to the machine)

When I start the script lettering, upper case, then go to lower case, there is a large gap between the two letters. Is this the same on your machine? It doesn't happen with any other lettering; just the script. Maybe it's just for monogramming, and if so, why are there lower case letters?

My 7700 does the same thing. I have learned to manually move the fabric closer when I start the next letter to compensate and eliminate the gap.

Great tip! Thank you! I'll have to try this. You'd think with all the money Janome makes off these machines, they'd get it right...

Same thing with my 6600... and I also reposition.

I've got a 6600 and there are three different sized spaces (numbers 97, 98 and 99 on the alphabets flip chart under the threading diagram). You might be able to play with those a bit to reduce the gap without shifting the fabric around.

I recall having this problem with my 6600 as well.
Haven't done any lettering on it in quite some time but it does ring a bell.

They're 67, 68 an d69 on mine and I'll try that! One of them, I believe 68, has a very narrow width in the box. Never knew what they were. Thank you!
