Re: Feet storage tray Ideas

I'm mystified!  How do you manage to fit the free arm accessory box on the machine as well as the large clear table top?  The only way I can see it would even begin to fit would be to take the back support off, and raise the height a little, but then of course it's too high to have a flat bed to sew on?  Do explain!

I would suggest that you only need to use the yellow dot bobbin case if you need a change of bottom tension with whatever threads you are using - so far I haven't needed it.

Listening to your comments and questions, I should share some ideas.....

The top tray for the 15k accessories fits in my top sewing cabinet drawer, with a little space for the magnets and a few other feet and things. It easily lifts out to go back into black carry case.  

 I keep the free arm accessory box on the machine, even with the embroidery arm and/or the large clear table top.  In the center section of it) I keep the alternate needle plate - the one I'm not using at the moment. The center space is designed for it.  Also the alternate bobbin shuttle .  We should be using the straight stitch plate and yellow dot  bobbin shuttle for embroidery.  There is also room for additional feet that don't have a specific spot in the tray.

Also on the top feet tray I used a fine sharpie black marker to lightly touch the top of the molded letters to designate the positions.  So much easier to see!,  or you could do a "rubbing" with carbon or tracing paper, maybe.  It's been fun to fill up all the molded spots.

For your happy foot work,  Ida



Sylvia Cabinet - Heather Cowan

Heather Cowan: I read your post and I'm at the point of getting a cabinet so my sewing surface is level with the machine. I'd like to get your feedback on how well the Sylvia model 1600 you got does with using the embroidery function? Any noticeable vibration or issues with designs being off?  Have you used the Acufil Quilting system with the cabinet? Pros/Cons?

Thank you,

Annette: Thanks for the post and recommendation to print out the instructions. Besides the RE18 hoop, what else did they add for the 12000?

I like my plastic stand-up Christmas wrap container. The hoops slide in upright as well as several bolts of stabilizer. Also, there is a small storage compartment in the lid.

I made large pockets for each hoop out of a heavy duty shower curtain and hung them in my sewing closet with 3M hooks.

Sorry. I thought I did post that I resolved the issue by watching the instructional videos. There's was more to the process than I thought, and the learning curve is there...but the functionality is there as well. Thanks for thinking of my.

Wow this sounds a brilliant idea. I have the Accuquilt go which I love but a Janomes own version has got to be the way to go!

Re: Janome 12000 Update Release - Question

We updated a friend's MC12000 yesterday.  Everything went fine.  We also updated DigiMBX v4.5.  It did what it was supposed to also..... added the RE hoop to the 12000 hoop list.  We didn't play with anything extensively since we were doing this between other things.  The only thing we didn't update was Horizon Link.  She has a newish Win 8 computer and we couldn't find the disk to install it so we could update it.

hope this helps.    Just be patient with the downloads.  They take a while.  Also, I usually print out the instructions so I can refer to them when I'm feeling insecure.  And be patient while updating the machine.  (I usually walk off and leave it so I won't worry too much)  The nice Finish on the blue screen is always a relief.

Re: Finding all the bits and pieces!

Cheryl Paul
 

I just have to add my 2 cents in here.  ALL that space for feet and there is NO slot for the ditch foot "S".  That is one of the most important feet I have and it has to sit somewhere in the bottom section of the case.  I will be making Diane's foot project as all those things will be much handier than in that case.  At least I think it will be much more user friendly.  I find that every time I must go into the case, I need to lift out the trays to find what I need.  Now to pack up and go somewhere - it is wonderful, but how often do we take this machine out of our sewing rooms.

I am in Arizona visiting a friend and sewing on her MC10001 - now I really appreciate all the upgrades I have made in my sewing machines.  When I owned that model, I thought I had the best machine going, but Janome has really done wonderful things in machines in the last 20 years since they brought in the home embroidery machines.

copy, paste problem

sbspicer
 

Hi Jim

I sure hope you can help me out before I go completely nuts

my problem being that when I try to copy and paste a design

parts of the design are not copying.

I am using MBX software,  edit, select all, copy,then new,  paste 

and that's when the fun starts, am I missing something? it never used to do this

also I have noticed that since the update to version 2 on 15000 and Horizon link suite

some of the designs sort of brake up into silly bits e.g an outline will do so many 

stitches, stop tie off then go back and start where it left off, go figure Please 

Many Thanks for any help or suggestions

Kind Regards

Sandra (UK)


Resisting the urge to break into silly bits, Jim says:

By chance is the copy/paste problem happening with a design that has been opened from a stitch file (i.e. not JAN format)? As Maggie recently explained, there is a huge difference between a design that is created as a JAN and one that is opened from a stitch file (JEF, PES, HUS, etc.). When a stitch file is opened in EasyDesign MBX will do its best to guess what the various parts should be, but this is only a guess on the part of a computer that lacks the wisdom to distinguish between a car, a cow and a butterfly. Typically these interpretations result in a lot of stitch blocks that are "manual" type, and those can cause all kinds of unexpected behavior, including jumps, strange cuts and tie-offs.


There's not really enough information to address the V2 question. Note that re-ordering the layers using the tool at the right side of the HorizonLink window could cause some strangeness, but without knowing what you are doing I can't offer much help.

Does anyone have information on a new Janome digital cutter that will also stitch the applique edges?


Re: Janome 12000 Update Release - Question

I have updated 3 machines (15000) to Version 2.0 and had no problems. You MUST read the FULL instruction before starting. Some react violently when the screen turns red and panic. Just let the update run uhntil the screen says "FINISHED", turn the machine off, unplug the jump drive and restart the machine. Wch the start up screen in the lower right and you should see "Ver. 2.0".
Happy updating.

Hoop Storage for 12000

JoAnn Novak
 

  I have the 15000 but the hoops are the same.
  Someone suggested a "Purse Rack" it works perfectly.
  I purchased this rack at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Meryl?, I put up 2 clear pegbords from Amazon (2' X 4' each).  They work great for hanging hoops & all other sewing stuff.

Any great ideas for storing MC12000 hoops? I have little drawer organizers for feet and stuff, which I have labeled. I don't really use the storage tray that came with the machine. Right now my hoops are in their box in my closet nestled between my fabric shelving and some other storage bins. God help me if I have to travel with them. The embroidery hoops that came with my Viking live in a hard case with the embroidery unit. The extra, larger hoops I purchased are in the same place as my Janome hoops.

In Online Sewing e-magazine for Spring 2012, Diane shows how to make a hoop storage and/or carrier for our new BIG hoops.  The whole magazine can be purchased at onlinesewing.com for $4.  Joy


Filled with regret, Jim says:
Well not any more. Something that PayPal changed broke the payment system, and I've had too many higher priority projects to address the problem. I've taken down the page. When time permits I'll look at alternate ways to make it available. Sorry to disappoint!


Storage for Hoops2

I forgot to mention it has a smaller zippered portion in the front that is great for the magnets.

It hangs on the wall behind my ironing station and it's easy to access the hoops without taking it off the hook, and easy to carry to class.
