I don’t know why you would need a roller foot.  The Teflon works great and so do the acufeed feet.  I’ve not found anything yet that I would have used a roller foot on that the Teflon foot can’t do – especially sewing on vinyl.  This is a really great machine that I’ve not found any fault with and I bought it a year ago today.  A 5x7 hoop would be nice to have and I agree with that.

Whew-that's a relief! I certainly couldn't imagine how they could
improve on the 12000--except a smaller hoop & a roller foot.

DUH! You just gave me a huge Avon moment Jim. I had totally forgotten that from The Foot Book DVD. That will definitely work. Thank you. I will still get the U foot-that teflon comes in handy.

Although the video is short, it's high resolution. Unless you have rock star bandwidth, it will likely stall out on the first play. Just let it finish downloading and then you can replay it all the way through.

You have a couple of choices. Part #830504017 is the fool holder for the 11000. Part #846572004 is the one for the 7700. We've used both on the 12000 for exactly that purpose. Either works well, although I think Diane likes the 11000 a bit better for some reason. You can order through your dealer, although some may stock them, as we did.

Hi All,

I bought a 12000 today. Can anyone please tell me if there is an ankle that I can use on the 12000 that will allow me to use any of my 7mm Janome feet? The 9mm feet have a wider bar that attach to the 12000's wider ankle.

Thanks!

Hi Vicki
I have the same problem with the early hours of webinar in UK, however I did sign up for the last one, that was put up on the Janome global site later to view, here's hoping they do it again. I have signed up just in case they dont, hope this helps.

Hi Connie,
I loved my 11000 SE, but for the first time ever I have a machine that will do everything well, and that is my 12000. I have owned a lot of different machines and it is defintely my favorite. The quarter inch walking foot, is great for bindings, the automatic foot lift is awesome for applique. Just too many things to list.
I use my machines almost everyday.
Good luck and glad u are a Janome girl!

Hi Connie,

The 12000 wins hands down. It is the best machine I've ever owned. It is so quiet, that you can actually hear yourself think when you are sewing. It does take a fair space in depth but I don't think any more than other brands once hoops are attached and sewing engaged. If you can afford the $3000 difference go for the 12000 as it is the latest technology and I think the better machine and I own both.

Connie, I think the $5g for the 11000 is inflated, I paid less that that for the 11SE and this is the next machine to be retired. Because dealers will want to move them, you should find a much better price.

I love my SE and see no reason to upgrade, and because the new machines are SO $$$$$$, hopefully Janome will support the 11000SE for several years. Especially in the present ecomomy.

If your 10000 is a workhorse with no problems, you might want to hang onto it as probably not worth much on a trade=in. Mine was on it's second motherboard and I opted to part with it, as all repairs were going to be my responsibility and I just didn't trust the machine anymore.

Gooe luck in your quest.

Re: 11000 or 12000

vicki chrobak
 

Connie, Sorry I can't tell you the difference. However, I have found the 12000 to be a dream machine. I paid a bit over $8000 for mine too & it was/is a good price. IMHO, worth every penny! It is great to be able to leave the embroidery arm on all the time. It comes with the extension table that can be left on all the time too for extra support of embroidery & other projects. There is an optional Accufil Quilt & hoop system. The Janome site has a movie on it. The somewhat down side is that when engaging embroidery arm, the machine & arm require a total of at least 26 1/2" front to back. However, this can easily be resolved by pulling your sewing cabinet/table forward. Another point brought up is the lack of 5 x 7 hoop. I understand some also substitue the Accufil hoop. Whichever you decide, ask your dealer if there is any 0 % financing deals available.

The Janome USA site has a link to sign up for a webinar covering the accufil software and hooping kit, held on 1 Oct. sounds like it will be good and answer many questions for those of us who haven't been able to purchase it yet. Barbara Jean
