There is also the question of power supply - Australia has 240V alternating current but I believe the USA uses direct current at a lower voltage, so would I be right in thinking that a voltage reducer would be required to use a machine made for the Australian market in the USA?

The only significant difference is that Digitizer Junior 4 supports the 12000, while version 3 does not. Everything else is pretty much the same.

The other issue is one that crops up when someone from Canada buys a machine in the US during the winter is where the machine is “metric” or “imperial”.  Canadian dealers do not have the correct tools to work on a machine produced for the American market so if something goes wrong, the machine has to be worked on by a dealer in the US.

That's a little risky. First, because the warranty on an Australian machine is with Janome Australia, not valid in the US. Second, you will likely have to pay Customs fees when the machine comes into the US. When the value is over $2,000 (may be different now, this was a few years ago), you need to pay the carrier (UPS, FedEx, etc.) before they will even deliver it. By the time you add in the extra costs, you'll be at a price that a US dealer will meet and you'll get to see it before you pay for it!

The 11000 feet will not fit on the 12000 unless you use the 11000 foot holder. Because of the 12000 having a 9mm width, the foot holder is different. This is also true for 10000 feet. They are high shank, like the 11000 and 12000, and can be used on the 12000 with the 7mm foot holder used on the 10000, 11000, 6600, or 7700.

Re: Thinking of buying

Hello Peggy,
If you have and use a 10001 and a 6600 I know you would LOVE the 12000.   It has extras that even these two machines combined do not have and it makes sewing and quilting a dream.  The power of the machine; the quietness, the quality of stitches -- it is all so nice. 
Yes, it is a big purchase but the thing I think it more important than price is the reputation of the dealer and the service and support that they give.  If I had to pay a little extra to get the machine at the dealer who had the excellent service reputation than that is what I would do.
For me there is only one dealer within 70 miles so he of course is and has been my dealer for years.  You can walk into this store and see the certificates on the wall from Janome trainings and institutes and know that they have the years of experience and training to take care of your machine. 

This list is owned by the Guru of Janome Machines.... I guess if you are a Janome person you know that.  lol 

I personally think that the 12000 would be a wonderful experience for you and really I think that it is pretty much a set price. I even heard the rumor that Janome was dictating how low they could go and keep their dealership so you are not going to find any internet bargains or store bargains for I think that the price is pretty much uniform all over the states.  I think that the only variable would be the numbers on your trade ins and the amount of cash you have to come up with. 

Good luck and welcome to our list.  I hope to see you posting that you bought it because you will be delighted with it.

Re: Thinking of buying

Bea Rosier <bearosier@...>
 

I bought it in late November – traded in my MC10001 and MC7700.  The MC12 does everything the MC10001 and the 7700 did, plus much more.  Since the machine will sew a 9 mm zigzag, most of the feet you have for your MC10, MC77, MC11, and MC66 don’t fit, including the adjustable zipper foot.

However, I still own the MC11, MB4 and MC66 and of all these machines, I believe the MC12 is the best I’ve ever used.  It is a dream to sew on, and the quality of the embroidery is excellent.  I would highly recommend it.   I haven’t yet done any quilting but I have a long arm, so I usually don’t quilt on these machines.

I don’t think you could go wrong with the MC12.

I too am interested in what to do with the decorative stitches page 8/8. We discussed hardanger at our last Janome club meeting and I am wondering if they could be incorporated into a hardanger design or if anyone has any suggestions as to how they could be used.
Thanks,

Re: Bonus with Purchase of 12000

When you receive the trolley case you will wonder where you are going to store it. It is huge and made of a plastic. The trolleys came in about 10 days ago in Sydney. My friend in Brisbane said all her friends got theirs then also. In Australia janome backed a trade in of $3000. You could trade in any machine or brand!. Many of the dealers only offered $2000 to the consumer. So the dealers got a very good deal from janome. The $12000 was the worry as they knew they would have trouble selling. The offers were made to get the 12000 out there. This trade in was as well as the bonus' that you mention.Trade-ins are very unusual in Australia.
My other brands of machines offer a free embroidery design each month with no stings attached. So when the US ladies said there was a gift each month I thought I would try to track down.
BUT now we know.
Enjoy the day

I live in Queensland, Australia and if you purchased your 12000 before the end of December you received a Janome CD of Designs a Stitchsize CD of designs and a "trolley carry case" for the machine.

I still haven't received the trolley case as apparently they are still waiting for them to come in.

Re: February Pack

Janome Canada was very good to us - and it was Janome as everyone who purchased a MC12000 before the end of January and registered on-line was eligible. A card was sent along with my black leather bound day book. That also had to be used to claim on-line for the sewing machine OR serger. I also found the gift a surprise and didn't know until I had my machine for a while.

I'm sorry that others aren't getting a gift but perhaps each country Janome is in makes their own decisions.

Re: February Pack

Dealers can pretty much decide how much they want to sell for in Canada. I was able to trade up at a good price so that brought down the price considerably. I have a great dealer and part of the deal was that Digitizer Pro MBX was included. I also got a considerable store credit. I am his very loyal customer because he always treats me so well and is fair and reasonable. So with my deal and the Janome gifts, I feel very happy.

Thanks for that information, Maureen.   I'm guessing that's at least three hours away from Indy, so hoping I can find a dealer in Indiana within an hour or so away.  I actually live west of Indianapolis.

Maybe this information, would help you.
 
I live outside Dayton, Ohio. I go to Lukes Sewing Center, and he has several stores. The Service tech, is out of Amelia, Ohio. And he is really really good.
They have just become a Janome dealer, in the last 6 months.

Hi,
I just got an email today (Feb. 24) that my Janome dealer in Indianapolis is going out of business and his Indianapolis store is closing tomorrow, Feb. 25!

He owns three stores: the one in Indy, one in Crawfordsville, Indiana and a third somewhere in Michigan.

He is going out of business totally. His Michigan store closes Feb. 28 then I assume the one in Crawfordsville closes the end of April because he is having a large inventory reduction sale the middle of March through April.

I called and spoke with a lady in the Indianapolis store and she said the employees just found out last Saturday! So this was sudden due to financial problems.

She did tell me she would personally keep in touch with customers to let us know about service for our machines.

I'm guessing since he is closing his businesses he will turn his customers over to another dealer. She did mention another store on the NE side of Indy may take over Janome, but she wasn't positive.

Feeling rather disheartened that I just bought the 12000 and my dealer suddenly goes out of business!

Yes, Pat, thinking someone will take on Janome.  The lady I spoke with today said she thought another store in Indy would be handling Janome.  It just happened very suddenly.  This poor lady just found out she was losing her job this past Saturday and the store is closing tomorrow...one week later.  I would think the owner would have foreseen this, but maybe not?

Anyway, I know there is another Janome dealer about an hour to hour and a half away.  I don't know if they would be willing to service my 12000 or not.  So just praying the place I bought my machine will send information to all of us!

If your dealer doesn't have the information to pass on to you, you can keep checking the Janome site in awhile because I am sure there will be some store in the area pick up Janome to sell as well as other machines. That just happened in Wilmington DE.... a store is closing on March 1-- have been Janome dealers for nearly 30 years and another store that sells Viking and Brother is picking up the Janome.  

I don't know if Janome has on the website those dealers who are certified to carry and service the 12000 the way they did the 11000 but I would think so since it is such a high end machine.

So sorry to read this happened to you but I don't think Janome will leave you in the lurch. But you may have to search around for a reliable service technician.
