Thank you for the relocation

Laura Velez <lgvelez@...>
 

i really appreciate being taken along with the change of venue. This is a great group. 
I also appreciate the desire to expand to take in more Janome models. I have a Skyline S7 and an MC6600 both of which I really love.

So happy to see that other Janome machines are going to be included because I have a 11000 and wasn’t sure I was allowed to ask questions.

Well I didn't expect the transfer to be as fast as it was, but here we are in our new home. My apologies for not informing you in advance. This group should work about the same as the one on Yahoo, but there are a few differences:
  • As you have noted, it is no longer the "Janome12000" group. I've named it Onlinesewing-janome, partly for shameless and blatant self-promotion, and partly to make it more open to more Janome models.
  • I've modified the old Janome12000 group on Yahoo so that all posts can still be viewed, but no new ones will be allowed. Do all your posting here.
  • Right now we're using the "free" version of Groups. There are some advantages to using a paid version and I may pop for that later, depending on how it goes.
  • Posts from existing users are no longer moderated. It has been many months since I had to delete a post that was spam or malware, so I'm going to run "bare" for the moment. Following this group as well as several on Facebook is very time-consuming. Eliminating that step may help.
  • This site has been modeled after the Yahoo groups, but a number of irritations have been fixed. I'm liking it so far, and hope you will too.
As always, thanks so much for your support.

I am not sure if Urban Spools has machines, but I would certainly start there and ask them who they would recommend. That is a fabulous place. One of many, I am sure.

Re: Move to Dallas

Hi Lori, welcome to Big D! If you've already been to the Janome website, you've seen that there are no dealers in Dallas proper, but one in every suburb. Given the size of the Metroplex (which is where you now live), you'll probably want a dealer that is reasonably close. I may not be the best person to recommend a dealer, as we were at one time in direct competition with all of them. Email me privately with your city of residence and I may be of some help. Other members of this list will likely chime in as well.

Thank you! I didn't want to keep changing thread but I'm guessing the best results will happen if I'm not too lazy. :)


Re: whose turn to make the coffee

Jim Stutsman
 

We had some splendid cake, but when this lot showed up it disappeared immediately. Sorry, but there's nought left, not even a stale tea biscuit! There is a fruitcake left in the cupboard, handed down from the time of the Norman Conquest. So far none have been brave enough to slice it. To make matters even worse, we're out of coffee. The last pot was made using the third pass on the original grounds.

oh no, chocolate brownies, there goes my resistance, I've been so good right through Christmas, no chocolates, no sweets, no cakes, no Christmas pud smothered in brandy cream, no second helpings, no nibbles, and you mention brownies. 


Move to Dallas

bellecon3
 

Hey all;
I have moved to Dallas in the last year from Iowa.  I had a really good service person/local quilt shop just the town over. 
I see there are several dealers in the area but I don't know anything about them and living in a city is a lot different from small towns where you can just ask around.....anyway it is time for my 12000s yearly check up.  Wondering if anyone knows anything about the dealers around Dallas
Thanks
Lori

Re: thread question- please help

If you try to follow the typical guidelines that quilters use as to thread types that could guide you. For example we usually use a thin but strong thread for piecing, and then the quilting threads can be just about anything a person could want; thick thread so the stitches really stand out, or thinner thread if you want a more refined look. When I do quilt in the hoop I piece the blocks with regular 50 wt. sewing thread both top and bobbin, and for the quilting I also like Superior Bottom LIne 60wt top and bobbin, or other decorative thread with a suitable weight bobbin thread. Testing is necessary to get the results and look that YOU want. There are no hard and fast rules. For me the one thing I do is use the red dot bobbin case and adjust the tension so that I have a balanced thread tension just as you would want if you were doing this in regular sewing mode.

Forget the coffee, pass the wine.  Better yet, scotch!
