Thanks for setting me straight, I was just going on what my Vdealer was telling me. I would much rather have the hoop info available than the new format.

If any of your designs came from emblibrary.com you can change the format in your preferences and download them again in the new format. I have Viking's 4D software and it will save designs in JEF format as well as other formats. Just heard from my Viking dealer that the new 5D Professional upgrade will save designs in the new Janome 12000, JPX format.

The new MBX software does not send to a flash drive however, if you save your design from the MBX as a JEF in your documents or where your other embroidery designs are saved you can then send it to your flash drive and drag and drop it into the folder for your machine that is formatted on your flash drive.  I know it is a work around but in the long run it is the easiest way for now until they correct it in the software.

The thread stand that was designed for the Horizon 7700 works with the 12,000.

Be sure to keep any threads away from the hand wheel. At 1,000 stitches per minute, it would take only a second for a stray thread to get pulled in and wound up inside!

It should be noted that you do not HAVE to use the JPX format on the 12000. This format allows for embedded JPG images, but the original JEF formats are all supported on the 12000. Also supported is the JEF+ internal format used on the 11000.

The needle threader on the new 12,000 is much more accurate than on the 11,000.  We have much more control when doing by hand.

I love the needle threader on the 11000 and will miss it when I do switch machines, the only problems I had with mine was threading metallic thread I found that if, instead of cutting the thread, you held it tight whilst the needle threader was going up, it prevents the thread from becoming slack and jumping out of the little hook. I will try you tip, sometimes threading the needle is a pain if the threader is having a bad hair day.

Re: For Jim - Info regarding Accessories

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

We checked the binding attachment, and it does fit. However you'll need an 11000 foot holder to attach the 7mm foot included with the binder. The Circular attachment should also work, as the bobbin cover on the 12000 is the same as that of the 11000.

Can I just mention I have bought every accessory available for my Horizon 7700 and would like to know if any of these at all will fit the 12000? I know the Accufeed accessories will not fit the 12000 but wondered about the other feet otherwise when I sell the 7700 I can then sell off my accessories that go with it. Some like the circular plate and huge binding unit I have for it I have never even used yet! Also, are there going to be lots of accessories, extra feet etc. that one has to purchase for the 12000?

Thanks again for your help.

Re: Metalllic Thread Spindle

Anne <csarina43@...>
 

I use quite a lot of metalic thread and use a jeans needle or the special mettalica needles, depending on what I am sewing; because the eye is bigger there is less 'rub' on the thread as it goes through the needle, so the thread does not get 'hot' and break.

I have a thread stand which takes a single reel of thread and I stand it away from the machine to the back, using the little thread feeder thet fits in the second reel holder on top of the machine I thread it in the usual way, by the time the thread gets to the tension discs the 'kinks' thahe straightened out. I must admit if I am using metallic thread I stay by the machine, if I feel the thread is not going to unravel I hold the thread behind the ravel in my right hand gently so the action of the machne sewing pulls out the kink.

I do find however that using the built in thread holder on the top of the machine works better with some threads, it depends on how the thread is wound onto the reel.

I use a lot of Marathon threads which I believe are avalable world wide, they are not the cheapest but I believe are very good value for money and their range of metallic thread is very good.
