Re: license keys

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

Congratulations on your Macification! You'll have a few days of frustration trying to figure out where things are, but it will ultimately be great.

Are you running Windows in a virtual machine (recommended), or are you using Boot Camp? Either way, your Janome and Buzz Tools software will work without new licenses for the Mac. Just install them and use the existing keys. Don't forget to check for updates after installing, as your CDs will install old versions.

If you are running Norton 360 in a Mac version, you wasted your money. Most Macs can run quite safely with no antivirus at all. The exception would be if you download a lot of porn or pirated software - then you're probably going to get infected no matter what you do!

If you are running Norton 360 in Windows on the Mac, you wasted your money. It's a bloated piece of software that uses far too much of the computer's power. Uninstall it and get Microsoft Security Essentials (Google it), which is free. Don't click on links in emails that consist of nothing but the link, and stay away from dodgy websites and you'll be fine.

Mr Jim,

I'm now the proud owner of a mini Mac (plus track pad/CDplayer/etc) AND I'm running windows 8 on the dying Dell. (yes I'm trying to learn both at the same time, till the Dell actually dies...)

Husbeast wants to know, if I NEED NEW license keys to run Janome and BuzzXplore on the MAC. (they are already on the Dell, cause that's what I've been using) Or can they just be transferred as is, to the Mac too. (same keys/same software) ???

AND we're having trouble with the anti-virus on the Mac...( Norton 360 he's already looked for FAQ's and problems and it's not there.) it runs till it hits 86% and then stops and locks the computer up.

Thanks for the help !!!

Using Pfaff, Viking, Brother/Babylock/Elna Diva-9000 Presser Feet on MC12000

berninahusq
 

I have ALL of the Janome, Pfaff, Viking, Brother/Babylock/Elna Diva-9000 presser feet and can use most of them on my four BERNINAs, when BERNINA does not have a comparable foot. Yes I have all the BERNINA 9mm and 5.5mm presser feet as well.

Because I have this variety, a few times in my less than 2 months of having the MC12000, I caught myself thinking "I wish I could use a particular Pfaff 9mm presser foot on my MC12000" because Janome does not have a comparable one available.

Well I solved that problem today by attaching a Brother SA131 Low Shank Adapter http://www.brother-usa.com/homesewing/accessories/accessorydetail.aspx?R3AccessoryID=SA131#.UKqRvobNkxE to the Janome MC12000. I then attach either a Pfaff, Viking, and Brother/Babylock ankle to the SA131 Low Shank Adapter to use virtually any of their feet on my MC12000. The 9mm Janome stitches clear the new style Pfaff 9mm pressure feet (with the curved needle opening made after the Pfaff CV came out). Of course, if you are using 7mm or smaller presser feet from any of the other manufacturers, you have to make sure your needle clears it, like you would with the Janome 7mm feet.

I'm liking my Janome MC12000 a little bit more! Just thought I'd pass that along for any of you that have other manufacturer's presser feet or wish you could use a specialty presser foot from another manufacturer.

Cheers,
Kanga

If you love your MC11000, you'll be in heaven with the 12000. I love mine more than any machine I've purchased in the last 38 years. My Pfaff 1222 was the only other real machine that thrilled me this much.

PAL

Just wanted you to know that I ordered the PAL I was not happy with it. It was very lite weight and moved easily so was difficult to use with the large 12000 hoop for me. If you just touch the light stem it moved and was not steady. It came with the center bean off center and it could not be realigned. I had to send it back to them, which cost me approximately $10 plus the original shipping that I had to pay originally ($15) just to try it. I decided it was easier to use Jenny Haskins method of marking the fabric center with the lines on the fabric and the marks on the hoops with no clothsetter. I have made a whole king sized embroidered quilt using her method with no clothsetter and I had no problem centering several design within ea block. Just thought I would let you know. Delores

I love the 12000 - had the 11000SE and wasn't sure about trading but glad I did. Think the embroidery is better and have used several of the stitches. If you quilt the 1/4" stitch is great. Easy to use and have had mine about 9 months and no problems. Can't use the small cards for embroidery only connect to the computer or a stick. I keep thinking I'll put all my designs on my computer by categories and it would be easier for both the 12000 and the MB$.

If it was something knocked loose in shipping, it would be the ribbon cable connecting the LCD screen to the A board, but it would most likely be pulled out at an angle so it's not completely disconnected. If the cable looks good it's probably a bad LCD screen. Hoping for a partially disconnected cable!

I finished getting my sewing room together and opened my 12000 that has been in its box for 2 weeks. It goes through the initialization steps and then the screen has horizontal vertical multicolored stripes. Jim, can you think of a connection that may have been dislodged during transport? . I figured if the screen was unplugged then I wouldn't get any screen. I'll call Janome tomorrow, but I have a hard time waiting.

Absolutely a wonderful machine.  I have had mine just one year this month and absolutely love it.  I had the 11,000SE previously for 3 years and have the 7700 as well.  You will not regret getting the 12,000.\

No clothsetter needed

dar.dick@shaw.ca <dar.dick@...>
 

Today our Janome educator, Liz, came to visit the local dealership.  She demonstrated PAL (personal alignment laser), and I promptly ordered one from Janome Vancouver this afternoon.  The link below is a video showing how it works.  Sure beats the price of the 11000 clothsetter and works for the 12000 or any machine.

Re: Buttonholes - advice please

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

Use the buttonhole stabilizer plate that came with your machine. See page 43 of the instruction book for details. This should solve your problem.

accept this and start again, the stitches soon start piling up into a lump.
I had already altered the stitch density to be a bit less than the standard
setting.



The fabric is lightweight tweed - the edges have been well tacked pressed
and hammered (with pressing block) into a state of flat submission. I
arranged the jacket so that the machine would not have to drag the whole of
the weight as it stitched backwards and forwards.



Any advice as to what I should try next? I won't be able to carry on
unpicking the start of these buttonholes indefinitely.



I don't really want to do hand buttonholes unless I have to.



Any advice gratefully received.

Re: Dig Jr and 12000

There is a download on the Janome website to correct the USB issues.  The download if for the Horizon Link and I believe there is one for the Digi,JR which will correct that problem.  I believe it changes the version of Digi Jr to R2.

The folder structure for both the 11000 and 12000 USB sticks is the same. So you could use your Digitizer Jr. to send designs to USB by pretending it was going to the 11000. This will work for all designs that don't require a specific 12000 hoop. Alternately, you can copy the designs to the USB drive yourself. Always put them in one of the folders inside the EMB folder. Just putting a design into EMB will not work - it must be in a folder which is contained in EMB. There is a default folder, EmbF, that you can use but you can also create your own folders as long as they are inside EMB.
