Dear Jan,
I've seen the Janome Thread Spool Stand at my dealer's store. When would I use this accessory? -Anonymous

Dear Anonymous,
The Janome Thread Spool Stand gives you a simple way to organize your various thread colors in the order you'll need them for embroidering designs. And the stand makes it easy to repeat designs without color confusion.

Also, many threads benefit from a vertical delivery system because of the way they are designed to unwind from the spool. The extra guide on the top of the stand, and the one mounted in the auxiliary spool pin holder, provide supplemental guidance for unruly threads.
