I did read many reviews of users that complained that the machine doesn't like cheap thread. I learned quickly a few years ago that cheap thread will break on you in a heartbeat and so have never had that problem. I've used Gutermann thread nearly exclusively, which is currently half off at Joann.
My projects so far have been focused more on simplifying my daily chores. The gardening season is coming up and I am trying to find ways to make it simpler, especially this year as I am breaking ground on a new garden and it will be much larger than anything that I have tended before. In years past, I couldn't figure out how to get organized. This year I am attempting to organize myself starting with an apron. I bought a basic sewing pattern, but one with many pockets. The pockets will have dedicated items, labeled so I know exactly where everything goes, such as scissors and twine, seeds, gloves, etc. In addition I added a loop for my felco 2 pruners. By the way if you are gardener, Felco pruners are worth the investment. If you take care of them they will last a lifetime.
