Re: stitches on 7700 and other questions

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

Here's a stitch chart for the 7700:
http://www.sewingmachines.co.uk/janomemc7700stitch.htm

I found 2 projects using Digitizer MBX here:
http://janomespecials.com/mc12000/projects.htm
My guess is that they have removed all projects for previous versions now that MBX is here. As for lessons, if you don't have Digitizer MBX it is possible to get an instructional DVD for Digitizer Pro/MB V3 from Trevor Conquergood:

Thank you, Jim. I did not particularly like using a decorative stitch on
top of the binding either, but it caused me to want to know if there is a
chart anywhere that Janome has that would show you what the stitches are on
the 7700 machine. There were some there that I really liked - and probably
they are also on the 12K machine but I would love to see a chart if one
exists.



Just wondering - there used to be lots of lessons on the Janome site for
Digitizer and now I can't find them. Have they taken away the lessons, or
am I just not seeing where they are located?

1. Stitch 100 is a quilting serpentine stitch. That's one option, but in our
tests and videos we used a straight stitch.

Maureen,
 
I buy my vilene from www.allstitch.net.  Haven't bought any new since I got my 12000, but when I wanted sizes not on their site before, I emailed them & they added new sizes to their inventory if there was enough interest expressed.

Thanks to Jim and everyone who suggested ideas for the machine. Think I will try the ipad cover cut down to begin with.

I will definitely be getting the next Janome whatever it is called...........but want to keep this one looking really good so that when the time comes I can sell it while it still looks good. I find that I get a better deal if I buy the new machine without a trade in.

You can buy “Aqua Magic”  in 18 inch rolls and Sulky Fabrisolvy in 16 inch rolls.  Both these products can be used in place of Vilene.

Hi, I am doing a in the hoop project, that needs water solubable stablizer, and I need it for my size 23 hoop, on the 12000. If I measured this correctly, I will need a 15 inche wide, stablizer. I have found only one place to purchase that size, using Vilene. Does anyone know where I can buy this width.? And is that what I should use, for in the hoop projects? Any suggestion, would be appreciated.

1. Stitch 100 is a quilting serpentine stitch. That's one option, but in our tests and videos we used a straight stitch.

2. There are two binders that fit the 1000CP & 1000CPX CoverPro machines. The binder for the 7700 (Part #846421007) attaches only to the 6500, 6600, 7700, 11000, and 12000. The actual binder assembly will fit on the CoverPro set (Part #7958381030), which you must have to attach it to the machine.

3. There is no workbook for the 1200D. The only "extra" they had when we closed last year was a threading guide book which I don't have a part number for. It was very good, and we gave one away with each machine we sold. I don't imagine it would be much of an inspiration though. Sorry!

1. Is there any chart on the Janome site that will show the stitches

stitch #100 on the 7700 when using the binder. I sold my 7700 after I
bought the 12000 machine and not able to look at what the stitches are to
find comparable stitches.

2. I bought the quilt binder today that Diane found works with the
12000 accufeed foot and am wondering if this same binder works on the Janome
1000 Cover Pro.

3. I know this is not a serger list, but do you know if there might be
a workbook for the Janome 1200D serger? I would like some inspiration for
using it.



Thanks so much!

Vilene is a water soluble stabilizer that looks, feels, and sews like fabric. We used to sell a product called "Wash Away" that was branded for our store. A lot of dealers sell it. You can order Vilene here in many different widths:

Just get some water soluble thread (YLI). Put it in the needle and bobbin
and stitch together two sheets of the WSS you already have. You can do the
same thing with Vilene. It's hard to say if that's what you should use
without knowing the project, but in general it's best to use what the
digitizer recommends.

Re: Button Hole Lever Warning

Jim, I had already done a couple practice buttonholes. I pulled down on the lever fairly hard to make sure it was down all the way. This is the first time I used it. Hopefully, whatever the problem it was resolved after I shut the machine off. I will be making some more soon, so will see what happens.

Thanks,
Marla

It doesn't matter where the needle is. Pulling the lever down activates the sensor and lets the machine know you're ready to make a buttonhole. Perhaps it was just a little stiff, or you were too timid in pulling it down. If it happens again see your dealer - this is an easy adjustment for them to make.

Re: Clear adhesive we have to put on the left side of needle plate

sharon.hedt
 

Have just cut down a spare iPad cover to 8.5cm x 21 cm - the size of the metal plate on the right side of the needle and even though it's a static cling ( I think) and it has adhered quite well. Couple of small air bubbles but I'm not worried about that....also maybe not quite as slippery as the little piece of clear adhesive we got with our machine..
Edges seem to be pretty flat and didn't lift when I ran my hand over it..so will leave it there and trial it.
Hope this helps

Oh and I can get 2 protectors for the machine from one iPad screen protector sheet!

--- In janome12000@yahoogroups.com, "Jim_Stutsman" <jim@...> wrote:

I'm sure you could cut that down to fit. Many of the screen protectors use a "static cling" effect to hold them on the screen, which would not work on the surface of the machine. Sticky plastics, like the ruler things mentioned, would stay on but will leave a mess when removed. Also sticky edges tend to collect thread and lint, leaving furry edges.

Oh, good. Stitch Buddy is my first choice for Mac embroidery software. I'm a big fan and have been for years. Thanks! Since Embrilliance has a text edit feature and can be bought in the App Store, I run it, too. Frankly, I'd rather run anything than the Windows OS and software, so I'm undoubtedly a little less choosy.
