Designs on USB drives are grouped according to hoop size. You may need to turn the hoop page on the Open File screen to see the design.


Design doesn’t show up on jump drive

Lisa Powell
 

I have an in-the-hoop zipper bag design (from Sue O’Very) that I want to make. It shows up on the jump drive when I have it in my computer, but when I put the jump drive in my Janome 12000, it’s not there, even when all the other designs are. I’ve spent almost 2 hours messing with this. I want to put my machine behind my car and back right over it! What am I doing wrong?!?!

I‘m very sorry to hear, and hope she was in loving company in her last days!

I remember some quite joyful conversations with her, always helpful and straight to the point in a very refreshing way!

You‘re missed, Mags!

Oh how sorry I am to hear this sad news.  Maggie was indeed, one of the people born to pass on her knowledge so freely and with so much love.  It’s sad when we lose such an understanding, kind person.  Rest in peace dear soul, you left us all better off for having shared your passion.

Re: New presser feet

I bought a Janome 7mm shank for my 15000 when I was at the training day.  I was warned about not using it on the 15000 and they were a bit cagey about letting me buy it, so to get round the hassle I said it was for another machine!

Of course I was aware regarding the restrictions regarding the width of stitching and testing out manually to be sure the feet I was intending to use would work without issue.  I've since used several 7mm feet including some old Elna feet.  There is also the advantage that sometimes the 7mm feet are cheaper than the 9mm for the same type.  For instance you can get the 2 Janome beading feet for the 7mm for the same price as buying just one for 9mm machines.  I actually got my 7mm beading feet from ebay, which are feet that had been sold for older Janome machines, but they are the same as the new ones.  They work fine on the 15000.

Re: presser foot is not working...........

Jim Stutsman
 

With the machine turned off, try to lift the foot manually. If you can't, then it's technician time. If you are able to raise it, loosen the screw and remove the entire foot holder. Then turn it on and see if it raises & lowers correctly. If not, again time for a tech. If it does, try reattaching the foot, making sure it's positioned correctly.


presser foot is not working...........

Gloria Lewis
 

I just changed into regular sewing mode and put on the correct foot but the machine will not lift the foot when I press the button (presser foot lifter button)   I do not use the knee lifter.   I have turned the machine off and waited and tried again to no avail.   Any suggestions?   Thanks so much.

Re: Bobbin question

Lorrie Gauthier
 

I've gone through the couple of hundred bobbins I have and pulled out the J, B and nice looking bobbins. I really don't need that many. LOL  And I have a box of pink ones.

I also found that I have plastic bobbin boxes that have sponge in them and and hold 10. Three that say Janome on the top and one that says Kenmore. That comes from my mom's machine from the 70s and the Janome ones came with my machines starting with my MC 6000.


Re: New presser feet

Jim Stutsman
 

Those are all 7mm feet. You can get a 7mm foot holder for your 12000 (part #830504017) that will allow you to use the feet. However the feed dogs will not hit a foot in the same spot, which might affect how the sew. Also you must be very careful to never exceed a 7mm stitch width.


New presser feet

Jeanne
 

a friend passed on some never used presser feet for her older Jan0me40 — maybe an 8000?  They do not snap onto the shank of my Janome 12000.  They are too narrow.  Does it make sense to purchase a different shank to accommodate these feet or wouldn’t that work on my machine.  All in an effort to “make do”!


Re: Bobbin question

Anne Parker
 

I've bought bobbins in the UK, both with and without the J, and and several boxes of coloured ones from China (useful for different threads - cotton, polyester, embroidery, specific bobbin thread etc, plus different weight threads).   The occasional one or 2 of the Chinese ones have too small a central hole to fit on the winder but apart from that I have had no issue with any of them.  I've also reused some of the pre-wound bobbins after I've refilled them and again no issue - plus I've used bobbins from my old Elna Diva at times when they have the right thread on them.

All work fine in my 15000

Re: Bobbin question

blue_lak
 

My 12000 doesn't have any problem with the pink, blue, or clear Janome bobbins. However, it does not like the generic class 15 plastic bobbins I sometimes use in my old Kenmore, which actually prefers the metal ones.

Re: Bobbin question

I have noticed lately I have had issues with the pink bobbins breaking when I embroider. I self wind them with Janome bobbin thread. My clear bobbins I self wind with other brands of bobbin thread for regular sewing because when I try to embroider with non-Janome bobbin thread I've had issues. First I hear a clunk then I remove the hoop to find a large bird's nest trying to embroider. Then when I remove the bobbin to inspect a piece has broken off in a diagonal. Of course my issues always seem to happen when I'm in a hurry or with someone else - lol. This past weekend I was embroidering a Minkee Pals bunny with my granddaughter, and of course, had to tear out his nose 3 times before I realized the bobbin had cracked and then broken when I removed it. Fortunately I was able to continue on without issues to finish it before her bedtime. That is a very cute pattern if any of you have not heard of it. Here's a link to purchase it. They are tiny cuddly animals.
