Zena like you I missed the needle threader but my teacher taught me a little trick Lower the pressure foot ( top icon next to the scissors) Thread by holding the thread in your right hand. While the pressure foot is still down thread the needle - works evry time, in fact more reliable than the 10 or 11,000

Me too, I love my 12000, the only thing I miss is the automatic threader from my 10000. I didn't have the 11000.

My dealer has advised me to sell the machine on Ebay, as its really worth more than the trade in. I have updated it twice, and have bought different feet for it so whoever buys it will get a good deal. I also have the cloth setter for it.
