Linda.
I would keep all the extra feet and just call another Janome dealer and order a high shank ankle. We stock high and low shank ankles all the time. Just another thing our customers misplace and need. You just have to remember 7mm opening for olf feet not 9mm.

Hi Jim,
I asked my dealer to order an 11K ankle for me , so I could use all my

some of those feet that I purchased separately; what do you suggest?

12000 or keep 11000 question

seamgood <seamgood@...>
 

Good morning.
I own the 11000 SE...got it brand new about a year ago and have only used it a handful of times...family life got in the way of my sew time. The end of the summer this year, I bought the 7700. Again, have used 3 times for hemming pants and family life in the way again.
I am considering the 12000 but really don't know what it does more than the 11000. I don't have a dealer near me. Would have to travel almost 2 hours to just see it. Can someone tell me what the 12000 does that the 11000 doesn't? Thank you so much. I do enjoy reading all your posts. Hopefully I can make a very educated decision in the very near future.
And Jim, I did buy your CD and the Apple App for my phone of the foot book. I love them both!!! Well worth the money. Very well done. Thank you!
Sincerely,
Gloria

Whooopeeeeeeeee!!!! Picked up my 12000 today!! It is still in the box as I am going to watch the instruction video quite a few times before I get it out of the box.

I use a lot of metallic thread and have little thing one of the dealers made. It is a vertical spindle set on a rotating disk, the metallic thread comes off the spool sideways and goes through a hole cut in a piece of wood that is also on the stand that holds the vertical spindle and disk. This makes the metallic thread come off the cone sideways and stay coming off sideways for approx 15cm and it rarely ever tangles..........hope this is clearer than mud

Question about this “kit” – don’t guess it’s going to work with the 12000 machine either, is it?  I’ve never had it open or used it.

Sell the extra items separately from what was standard with the 11000 - that way you can recoup a bit more of your money.

I am selling my 11000S and want to know what hoops and feet that I purchased separately should I keep for the 12000? I will keep the CD player but in hopes that I will be able to use it in the future but, will give the clothsetter up with the machine. Peg in FL

Jim, very interesting I have  extra feet on my 11.000, which I have kept, so I will ask my dealer to get me an 11,000 foot holder
Thank you

The feet that came with your 11000SE will be listed in the front of the instruction book. Those should go with the machine. Any snap-on feet that you have can still be used as long as you buy an 11000 foot holder to snap them onto. None of the hoops will work, and as you noted, neither will the Clothsetter. Do keep the CD drive, as it should be usable after an upcoming update.

Be careful about spraying silicone on thread BEFORE it goes through the tension. Over time the thread can carry the silicone onto the tension disks, where it can build up and begin reducing tension. It's better to apply after it comes out of the tension. There are some after-market products that are tiny sponges which stick to the machine in the thread path. You apply the silicone to the sponge. We've never found it necessary to lubricate the thread though. Using a topstitch size 14 needle is a big help.

As for taking to the roof, remember one has to suffer for one's art!

Re: Metallic threads

The lack of a vertical spool pin is kind of puzzling. That's something that's been on every Janome machine for at least the last 25 years. Feeding metallic thread from a vertical pin is the preferred method, since the thread rolls off without twisting.

Hi - I haven't yet tried working with metallic threads on the 12000 but am looking forward to having a go when I have some time. I usually put the reel of thread on a vertical spool and wondered why Janome don't supply a vertical spool pin with the machine? Also my Isacord cones don't fit so I have to use a separate spool holder away from the machine whereas they do fit on my 350e.

Re: # of stitches in design

Good call Sue. As far as I know, the limit of 78 color changes is still true for the 12000. I'm also wondering whether Zena hit the limit in the software that converted the design to JEF format, rather than in the machine itself.

Apart from the limitation on the number of stitches there also used to be a limit on the number of colour changes ( not actual colours). Maybe that’s something you ladies that have problems could look at ?

Odd. In the time since I stitched out the first design with more than 100,000 stitches I have stitched 2 others in the 90,000 range in the 230 X 300 hoop. Neither the machine nor HorizonLink had problems accepting either of the 90,000 stitch designs.

From: Zena M
Today I tried to stitch out an Embroidery Library design on the 230 x 230 hoop. It had 55048 stitches, this was too many stitches for the machine. I reduced the design to 49273 and the design stitched out fine.
