:smile: hello, everyone! glad to be in this group, hope to get a little advice and fun here!
i have a janome mc10001 and love to embroider with it. i also have a serger which i still cannot use correctly, but oh well. i have been trying to figure out how to do candlewicking on the 10001, which is NOT one of the built-in stitches... i did a sheet from a sweet gal with one way, but i wanted something a little more 3D.

let's go!

Welcome, Jatteam! Candlewicking? sounds vaguely familiar, but I'm not quite sure what it is.

Hi and welcome to the group. I know how to do some candlewicking by hand but have never tried it on my machines. I, too, love machine embroidery. It can be so addictive. Look forward to seeing pics of your projects.

Welcome to the group! I'm waiting to get my embroidery machine out of lay-away and then I get to play too.
