I’ll be waiting for the new quilting hoop before I try anything larger than the lap-size quilt I needed to finish.  The 230 X 230 hoop will work and the magnets do help but over-all they just are not sturdy enough for a larger quilt.  There is a tendency for the inner hoop to lift a bit and the magnets sometimes pop-off.  Too much like work after using the 11000 Acufil hoops!

I am sure you will enjoy the new machine. I have had "Mercury" since the end of October. I also have several other Janomes and enjoy them all. I am currently making quilted tote bags so I am exercising the accufeed feet quite a bit. She sews as if she's going through butter! I do have a question - is there a sashiko stitch on the 12000? Or do you have to use invisible thread in the top and colored thread in the bobbin to create that look?
