MC11000SE Designs

cmgazerro@...
 

I attempted to download the MC11000SE Designs to the site but the folder was too large.

The designs were transferred from my old SE.  The folder also has copies of the SQ templates.  I have placed them in Dropbox.  Let me know if you are interested and I can invite you to access the folder.


BTW:  It took me a good afternoon plus to transfer all the designs.  Figured might as well share with others.

Re: My 15000 trial!

Patricia Ward
 

Erin, I have to agree with you on the holding investment company that is now making the machines. I feel so sorry for people who think they are buying a genuine Viking or Pfaff and getting what is now being produced. It pays to do homework. I had even looked at that newest Viking until I looked at the price, where it was made and did some research on where they are built and looked for repair records.  I had seen some quilting thing on You Tube where they were using this embroidery feature that was some endless border thingy and it peaked my interest.    Well that interest was dead after I saw who made them!!!

As to Anne's concern that the Viking comes with 11 bobbins?   Do you know the relative expense of bobbins compared to machine repairs?   The bobbins themselves are not expensive. 
As to the sideways sewing... I have it on my Bernina Artista that I have had quite a while and have only used it once or twice. I was not that excited about it.

Now the 15000? I love it.   I had the 12000 and moved up... I did just what you did with the manuals... I sat with them side by side and made a list of the things that the 15000 had that I needed or wanted.  Well that list won.  Now I am so happy that I did make the decision to move up because not only are those extra features there but the machine sews so smoothly... the 12000 sewed wonderfully well and I free motion quilted quite a few things with it and was pleased; I love the embroidery..... but there is a different feel to the 15000 that I can't explain other than more power and more smooth.  I just love it. 

The black screen...  so you pretend it isn't even there.  And you can change the background color.  Cosmetic things on a machine do not bother me as much as the repair record, the functionality, the features and the ease of using it. To me the Janome wins hands down!

Anne, I have the Janome 9900 and LOVE it.  I would seriously look at some of the information on the Viking.  Since the SVP holding company owns Singer, Viking and Pfaff the reliability and innovation all three brands has evaporated.  Basically they are selling low quality machines under trusted names and charging the consumer big bucks.  Lots of info about this on the net. 

 

I would go with Janome or Babylock if it were me. 





Question about Artistic Embroidery Designs

ceilsews <no_reply@...>
 

Has anyone used these?  Do you like them?  I searched here and found a topic on Artistic Suites.  Are these designs that you can purchase to use or do you need other software to make them  work?  I'm interested in quilting and the Leah Day designs look interesting.

Yay! Worked like a charm...thank you! Now, I thought I'd store all my larger than 5x7 designs on a new jump drive...how do I create the Emb file on that? Don't put away that remorse-removal wand just yet...Lisa

Reaching for the box of simplicity itself, Jim says:
Just plug your USB drive into the machine. It will create the EMB and ORD (Ordinary Sewing) folders and within them the EmbF and OrdF folders. You can create additional folders yourself either on the machine or in your computer.


My 15000 trial!

Anne Parker <annegparker@...>
 

Last Wednesday I went to my local sewing centre to try out 2 top of the range machines.  The Husqvarna Diamond Royale and the Janome 15000.  I spent just over an hour on each and then came home to think and compare them more.

The Husqvarna is just under £5000 with a half price software offer so total £5500.  The Janome is £6500, with no offers and no software (though I think that could be something for discussion).  I downloaded and opened both manuals side by side on my laptop and compared the accessories and features provided.

In nearly every feature the Janome wins hands down.  More hoops, more feet (including more acufeed/dual feed feet), the harp size is bigger, more usb ports, more designs in memory, more needle positions.

It also has things the Husqvarna does not have - high light, magnifiers, cloth guide, foot cutter, knee lifter, accessory case, additional wide table, dual feed balancing, wifi, and a quilting system. 

The Husqvarna wins on bobbins - it comes with 11.  It also has sideways and directional motion sitching, which would be good for straightline quilting as you wouldn't have to turn your quilt - though not sure if that can be done with the dual feed system - but I do wonder if there might end up being issues with normal feeding as the feed dogs would not be just set for forward and back motion.  It doesn't have a manual presser foot lever, raising and lowering is done either by sensor or by a light touch of the pedal and something I didn't like. 

The embroidery units take up just as much space when in use, but when closed on the Janome you have the left side of the machine free for other things - you would have to take the Husqvarna one off.

There was only one thing I didn't like on the Janome - that black screen - but I see in the manual there is a lovely restful green!

I think for £1000 difference the Janome is worth it - it is a bigger machine, and heavier and feels it would be more stable.

I am interested in knowing what the sewing basting function is like to use  (untility stitch 8) - not in the hoop - but the automatic basting mentioned on page 84 of the manual plus also the single stitch basting also mentioned there.  I did test out the FMQ with foot QO and it was fantastic (you need to select straight stitch 2 under quilting to get the foot displayed on the screen if I remember correctly).  This is not the spring foot, but the one that is held a set distance above the fabric and doesn't jump around.

I am smitten!  I think the machine will give me everything I want in a machine - sewing, embroidery and a substitute for long arm quilting - so 3 machines in one.  Considering my Elna Diva would have cost around £2000 today just for a top of the range sewing machine (and the Janome has all that and more in the sewing mode) it seems a must have buy!

Re: Getting designs from a jump drive

Janice Morris
 

Are you attempting to use the Customizer software that you use for the 350E? The 12000 uses Horizon link software. I used to have the 350E. I traded it in toward the purchase of my 12000 and have not regretted it for even a moment. The Horizon link software is so much better. I still have my 11000SE which uses Customizer so I have to keep both on my computer. Give yourself some time with your new machine. You will soon find it is your new best friend!!!


Re: Getting designs from a jump drive

HEATHER COWAN
 

Lisa .. Don't get discouraged.  You have a great machine and the learning curve is manageable.  I've just had my 15K for a few weeks and still puttering through but each time I do something it gets easier.  There is so much it can do and so much to learn.  It is a bit like building blocks .... each skill is the foundation for another.   Once you find those pesky designs you'll be off and running.  I know I had a little adjustment from my Janome MB4 to the 15K .... similar but a bit different. 

 

This group is great because someone will have an answer for any questions you have ..... or ...it seems that Jim will find an answer.  No buyers remorse allowed ...... use that energy to embrace the challenge of mastering this amazing sew/embroidery machine.... I know you are going to love it.

hugs

Subject: [janome12000] Getting designs from a jump drive

 

I'm new to the group, so I apologize if this has been addressed recently. I just bought a 12000, and I also have a 350E that I love. I can't get the 12000 to read a jump drive. I was hopeful it would use the same one I use for my 350E, but that's not working and I'm okay with that. I bought a new one, loaded on a design, and my machine tells me there's nothing on it. I have buyer's remorse so bad right now, you don't even know!! Is there just something I'm not doing right??

Thanks!

Lisa



Waving his remorse-removal wand, Jim says:

You didn't say what procedure you were using to put your designs in the USB drive, but I can make some general suggestions. On the 350E designs are stored in folders within the EmbF5 folder. When you put the 350E USB drive in the 12000 it creates its preferred folder EMB and within that EmbF. That's why you don't see your designs. Use the arrow at the bottom of the screen to move up a folder and open EmbF5. Then you'll see the folders that are on the drive and you can open them.

footbook and different number to janome site

laucke2011@...
 

Hi I have the footbook app on my ipad and was looking to buy some extra feet and the one I wanted is a clear view quilting foot (OV) but the number in the foot book is different to what Janome says can anyone tell me why Footbook no. 200449001 Janome 202089005., I am sure both say for the Janome 12000. I like to give part number when I order for my machine as I sometimes get the wrong ones from the dealer. Naomi



Taking his foot out of his mouth and putting it back in the book, Jim says:
From time to time Janome does change part numbers, both on parts and accessories. The 200449001 was the original part number from the packaging, but the 202089005 is listed on the website for the 12000. There is only one foot, but it does have two numbers. Use both when you order, making sure they understand you only want one set. Many times I would order parts from Janome's own machine parts lists, only to get a call saying the number on the parts list did not exist. It's just a fact of line when you are dealing with such a large number of items.

A major update is planned for FootBook when we complete the 15000 videos, and all part numbers will be revalidated at that time.

Jim and Diane,

I just downloaded the Janome Video App.  Although they are very good, I'm still looking forward to the DVD/CD that you are getting ready.  Diane does an excellent job of presenting information for our machines - THE BEST!   I just want you both to know that even though Janome is starting to do their job, that you still do it better and I will be purchasing as soon as you give the READY TO GO for us to purchase.


Thank you.


Cheryl - Saskatoon

Hi Gail.   I also went to put it into I books I am sure I saw it there but after I read your message I checked again and hello nothing.  I think I pressed add to reading list when I pressed that little box with the line thru it.  Perhaps you can only put it on desktop.  Will have another go.

Re: quick question

shejmartin1
 

I had an 11000SE before my 12000 and really liked it.  I got the 12000 because there is more space to fit quilts in and I really wanted the automatic presser foot lifter.  I really didn't care much about the larger hoops since I embroider more small things.
Just curious, do you already have a 12000 or 15000 and you are thinking of getting an 11000 also?  I think they are all fairly similar.  If you are looking for a smaller machine like to take to classes, I probably wouldn't get the 11000 and since the 12000 and 15000 have embroidery so you don't need it for that.  I have a Janome 3160 to take to classes and use as a 2nd machine.  

If you have a smaller machine and want to upgrade to the 11000SE it is a good machine.  I like my 12000 quite a bit better though.

hello Gail  when you click on the web site and it comes up you will see all the items re horizon link etc. Just go to the top left of your screen on iPad and you will see a box with a line thru it. Click on that and click add to your home screen or desktop . I never had a clue either and the penny dropped and there it is .  It is super. Hugs CB

The easiest way is through Dropbox which  is a free App. Then open the file in your iPad using "open with" option.   Select iBooks which is also a free App.  If files are small enough, email to self and open from iPad using the iBooks option.

How do you get the 15000 manual and HL Suite in iBooks.  I'm been trying but can't figure it out.

Ditto!!  I also have 15000 machine manual and HorizonLink Suite in iBooks.  It is so convenient because you can search the documents instead of flipping through pages.

Re: quick question

jean billingsley <jmb4@...>
 

I have the 11000se so does my mom it's a great machine. I see no reason to up grade to the super expensive 12000 or 15000 I still have my bought new 10001 and keeping that one too
They both do all that I want to do and more I sew and embroider and digitize some I like doing photo stitch type portraits of family faces. just my two cents worth, hope it helps I have not had problems with either machines self threaders but my mom has on her 11000se my 10001 bobbin winder does not work, it was replaced once under warranty but the 11000se winds all my bobbins I probably will buy a stand alone bobbin winder one day, maybe.
