Anyone else get their pack of the month?


You Need To-----Hoops

theagedpage@...
 

We all need to complain to Janome and to our Dealers - it is only then that something will be done - even if it is a recall on the embroidery unit to update it to take in the 5 x 7 - 5 x 5 was a stupid (yes I said it) engineering design when the design patterns are 5 x 7. Maybe Janome is in cahoots with the stabilizer manufacturers. They say if you use it and lay it out correctly you can use up that stabilizer...well I have a whole bag of used stabilizer pieces.

On my way to the Janome site to complain...


Digitizer Jr.

elainesjosiegirl <elainekaiser@...>
 

Just wondering how many of you that have the Digitizer Jr. have upgraded to MBX? I haven't had my machine long enough to even think about using either. But I have been told that with some of the embrodery designs that use the larger hoops this is the way to get them to download since the programs don't recognize that the 12000 has the larger hoops.

12000 vs. Singer XL-5000

Hi
How does the sewing quality compared between Janome 12000 and Singer XL-5000?

Thanks


Re: hoop sizes

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

It's not possible to put in software to recognize the size of the attached hoop, because they did not build any kind of sensor into the attaching mechanism. Given that Brother has had this for years, I'm really surprised this feature didn't make it.

Whoever engineered the 12000 solved a lot of issues with the sewing side of
the machine, but didn't think out the embroidery issues. Janome has the
hoops out there. There just needs to be a bit of "manufacturing" to handle
additional hoops and an update to the software to recognize the hoop size.
That shouldn't be all that difficult to fix. Whether it's worth Janome's
while to do so is another issue!

Unfortunately, I’m not eligible to receive the Pack of the Month as I got a discount when I bought the machine. What’s in the pack for this month?

Liz,
Complain to Janome, if enough of us complain to them maybe they will come up with smaller hoops. It's rediculous to have a 4" differance in hoop sizes.

Hi All,
Well, I just brought baby home about an hour ago. She is still in the box....I am just about to take her out of the box and I am just dancing a jig!!! with excitement.
I'm sure I'll have questions, but right now, I just want to go stare at her. lol
Talk to you all soon.

upright spool pin

sue <sue@...>
 

I found this one at Nancy's notions, called Horizontal Spool Feeder. It slides onto the horizontal spool holder. can hold two spools of thread. might be something for the 12000 machine stores to carry. Probably lots of other machines without an upright as well.


New Machine

Susie <mssewsue@...>
 

I picked up my machine yesterday It is wonderful and I have to work today.
I will play this evening.

Thanks so much for sharing this. Please list the things you learn at your next lesson. I won't be going in for lessons, not all dealers are created equal I have found. So I am having to learn on my own.

Re: A couple of embroidery questions

Judy <judyjanome@...>
 

When I first tried my machine I embroidered with the accessory case on not the table. Something caught on the edge of the case and caused a problem and threw the embroidery off. Since I only emb with the acrylic table on. Anyone else have a problem with that. I don't believe it told you what to have on if anything. It does make since there wound be more stability with one or the other on. Judy

After I just realized a couple of days ago that you can embroidery with the table on, I've been using the table. I haven't had any problems. In fact it seems to be that the table sticking out a little more might add some more stabilization to the embroidery hoop.

I went back a few stitches, and it sewed a few, and cut the thread and stopped. I realized that there was jump stitch there, and i had the trim jump stitches on. But, I had to restart the machine. Is that normal, or does it usually just go to the next area and start on its own? I'm not exactly sure even that is why it "paused". Has anyone else stitched this design with the trim jumps on, and have the same thing happen? Thanks! Barbara Jean

This is what happens when you try to multi-task. At the time I posted that I had been on the phone for half a day dealing with the most annoying human on earth who was having a self-induced printer problem. What it should have said is "Since this action is controlled by the machine software, it can be fixed with an update." Sorry for the confusion!

Thanks for sharing that information, Sherry!

I too was trying to figure out how to lower the presser foot with the lever and was frustrated having to press the button to attach the feet!  

I'm so glad I joined this forum.  I have so much to learn between the new 12000 and the software!
