Dear Jan,
Can you give me some advice for topstitching? -Anonymous

Dear Anonymous,
Two threads can be used through the needle to create a bolder effect when topstitching. Janome Embroidery Thread is available in wide selection of colors, and will work very well for this technique. You'll need to replace your regular needle with a topstitching needle. This needle has a bigger eye to accommodate the two threads. Place both spools of thread on the separate auxiliary spool pins that are included with many sewing machines. Your thread will "reel" off the spools at the same rate, eliminating thread breakage. An accessory spool stand is also a perfect tool for this technique.
