  1. Julie can you please tell me if your sets of coloured bobbins suitable for machine embroidery in a Janome110000 please? Are there specific embroidery thread bobbins ? Do the pre-wound bobbins fit the above machine and also the Gammil Classic Long arm ?

      Hi Christine,
      The L-Style bobbin will not fit your Janome. The superBob bobbins would have been ideal for your embroidery. However you can still buy the reels or cones of BottomLine and wind your own as there are 55 colours to choose from. This thread is a Polyester 60wt. thread.
      The M-Style bobbins fit your Gammil machine and you will find those on my website.
      Happy stitching,
