When I went into search under "Janome thread" several different on line places came up. Have you tried doing an on line search? Maybe somebody will post that has bought it on line and had good service.

actually you can only buy Janome thread through onlinesewing if you belong to
It's a Janome site (you pay for) run by a dealer, Jim Stutsman.

Janome thread is usually sold through Janome dealers. (like the machines, they are NOT supposed to be sold online. If Janome finds out someone is selling the machines online, without permission, they pull they dealership)

try (same people, same place, but you don't have to pay to belong.)

personally I dont like the Janome thread. I find it weak and not consistant in quality.

I do work for a dealer and I dont like the thread. you can get thread that matches from Madeira. you can get a thread chart and match your colors. there is also a wider selection to choose from. ALso if you like the sheen of Rayon but the duribility of Polyester you will like their poly neon thread. it has the luster of the rayon and can with stand the bleach like polyester. I use it for all my boutique items for the baby stuff. The ladies love it cause of the sheen.
The more you disaprove, the more fun I am having!

I own a Janome embroidery 9500, and I buy all my threads from this thread mill in N.C.
I love the thread selections and their quality.
Plus I use a Standing thread stand that sits along side of the machine,this way I can use the king size cones of thread. The Threads last alot longer buying them in the king size cones and thats where the metal thread stand comes in handy. We bought our daughter a Brother embroidery machine at wally world instead of using the tiny cones we got her a thread stand. She likes the king size cones as well. They also carry these stands. If you have a handyman he could also make you a stand - they are pretty simple stands.
I have bought about $150.00 dollars worth last year and I still have plenty of threads,and I sew 8 hours each day. I buy all king size cones.
They have alot to choose from and their prices you can't beat. you can email them to get a thread chart at - <email address removed for privacy>
They are very nice folks there.
all my best to everyone,

I had never heard of Janome thread till I saw this posting. I don't have a Janome dealer near me, maybe that is why. Sears Kenmores are Janomes and they do offer threads in their brochure of feet and accessories so maybe the thread they offer is Janome. If I remember correctly the brochure has kits of many colored threads for the embroidery machines they sell that are made by Janome.
