My needle threader hasn't worked since the day I took my 12000 out of the box. I will get it repaired when I take my machine for servicing.

The minor inconvenience of the needle threader is far outweighed by the wonderful features that do work.

I haven't had any issues with my needle threader...also don't think it's a
wide spread problem...I think you will really love the 12000...I sure do.
As to only having one machine...can't speak to that...I have a couple so
never run into the problem..Once you do the test drive you are going to be
hooked I am sure....
Happy New Year....

Subject: [janome12000] Purchase Anxiety
I am new to this group but have enjoyed reading past posts. I am talking
with my dealer about trading in my 350e and 6300 for the 12000. I really want
a larger hoop than my 5x7. I love both my machines and have major anxiety
about having only one machine for both sewing and embroidery. I have not
been able to test drive yet (they sold out over Christmas), but hopefully
their shipment will come in this week. On the Janome website some people
complained about the needle threader. Seems kind of minor to me with all the
other bells and whistles. ;)
