Janomelife summer giveaway: Wonderfil thread sets

HAPPY CANADA DAY to all our janomelife viewers in Canada! 

We celebrate with another look at Tamara Kate’s (Janome Canada Artisan and spokesperson) stunning maple leaf paper foundation pieced and Janome Acufeed Flex/ walking foot quilted wall hanging – part of our Canada 150 celebrations last year.

Wonderfil Threads are a Canadian company based in Calgary

We recently attended Quilt Canada 2018 in Vancouver. Janome was one of the major sponsors of the show. Please see this recent post.   Wonderfil Threads were also a sponsor of the show.  They handed out cute little bags of thread at the one evening lecture I attended. Each baggie has 6 different types of Wonderfil thread so is an ideal opportunity to try out these threads if you have not used them before.

I was lucky enough to be given a couple of extra baggies of this thread above but I decided I would rather share this with our Janomelife viewers.

    Bonnie says good quality thread really decreases frustration when embroidering and sewing.


  3. June Perreault says:

    Thread makes the project pop!


  4. Hylda Gordon says:

    I love working with threads…and the range of colors available is fantastic…always puts me in a good mood just choosing different colors for any project.


  5. Karen Easterbrook says:

    When sewing out an embroidery, line up the thread colors in the order sewn so if you want to repeat the design (in case it screws up) you can do that easily, or change up a color that you didn’t like….

    Thread can make your project!! Don’t be afraid to try all the wonderful types!!!


  8. Linda says:

    I like to use a thread stand so the thread comes off the spool in the correct direction.


  9. Linda Gagliano says:

    Keep your thread box beat by using a small piece of painters tape on the end


  10. Line Paquet says:

    J’aimerais bien gagner! Cela signifie des heures de plaisir.


  11. L.Grimard says:

    Put two or three little dots of oil on your spool of thread before you start sewing. Makes the thread glide easier through the machine.


    • lizafrica says:

      Not sure we would recommend oil. Sewer’s Aid would be better which is a silicone rather than an oil. But perhaps that is what you meant?



  12. Joan Hutton says:

    The tread makes the quilting stand out.


  13. Kathy DeMeo says:

    Threads are so important in the finishing of a garment or quilt. These threads are just so happy in my Janome 7700. I do miss the Wood Spools though!


  14. Christine Gibbons says:

    What an awesome give-away. HAPPY CANADA DAY


  15. Dianne Dungavell says:

    It is not worth the effort of sewing an item if you use cheap thread. Good thread may cost more but it is worth in the end.


  16. Joan Inkster-Smith says:

    Because I have difficulty always telling the difference between black and dark blue thread, I now mark the spools/cones “B” for black and “N” for blue/navy.


  17. Nicole says:

    It’s always important mtach your needle to the type of thread you are using – this can make a huge difference in success when using specialty threads! Love Wonderfil threads in my Janome 9400 and 500e!

  19. JUDY Hynes says:

    Use netting when working with invisible thread.
