Clothsetter

Hi, has anyone tried to place a hoop into the 'B' space on the clothsetter? I can only get mine to go into the 'A' space. They won't clip into place with the 'B'

The needle thread on the 11,000 is an entirely different threader than the 12,000.  On the 11,000 you pushed a button on the 12,000 you use your hands.

I haven't had any issues with my needle threader...also don't think it's a wide spread problem...I think you will really love the 12000...I sure do. As to only having one machine...can't speak to that...I have a couple so never run into the problem..Once you do the test drive you are going to be hooked I am sure....
Happy New Year....

I am new to this group but have enjoyed reading past posts. I am talking with my dealer about trading in my 350e and 6300 for the 12000. I really want a larger hoop than my 5x7. I love both my machines and have major anxiety about having only one machine for both sewing and embroidery. I have not been able to test drive yet (they sold out over Christmas), but hopefully their shipment will come in this week. On the Janome website some people complained about the needle threader. Seems kind of minor to me with all the other bells and whistles. ;)

Too bad about the Miracle Stitcher. I still have the one I used on the 8000 and used it on the 7700, but it doesn't work on the 12000. Since I traded in the 7700, I can't use it anymore but can't bear to part with it.

The 12000 is just an awesome machine! Will you get very much for the 6300 on your trade in? If not, you may want to think about keeping it. It is handy to have another machine to sew on while the 12000 is embroidering. Also, I just love the needle threader on the 12000. It works great.

The needle threader works just fine.  Nothing to be concerned about.  Many had problems with the needle threader on their 11000’s.  Perhaps that is was you were reading about.

Same one Pat.  The 9 mm stitch width does not affect how the circle stitcher works.  The 12000 and 11000 circle stitchers are exactly the same.

I called my dealer today and he told me that the circle stitcher for the 11000 fits the 12000.  It is the same one.
Is this the case?  I thought it might be different because of the 9mm stitch.

As noted, the 11000 Circle Stitcher does work fine on the 12000. We did find that it's MUCH easier to attach if you remove the needle plate from the machine, attach the Circle Stitcher, then put the plate/stitcher combo back on the machine. Removes much easier this way too. The problem is the extra length of free arm, which makes it hard to achieve the right amount of tip to attach it.

What foot do you all use for couching yarn?

I didn't see a couching foot listed in the footbook but maybe it is called something else and I don't recognize the name.

Estelle, I use the D foot.

We debated about including the Miracle Stitcher foot in FootBook. It's a near perfect solution for free motion couching. Unfortunately it has been discontinued and is no longer available from Janome. That's why we decided not to include it. If you don't need free motion, you can use the 3-way cording foot H for thin cord. For heavier cords use one of the beading feet.

Thanks for your quick reply. I had figured out the other shortcuts, was just hoping for a better solution to my stupidity. Where my frustration kicked in was when I was running a 98000 stitch 1 color design and was at about 45000. LOL. I LOVE the resume function.

Thank you, Donna!  Great to know that I can save my $79.80 for something else!   I do have it for the 11000 and still use it. Nice to know that this is one time they are letting us interchange something other than feet.

Hello Jim and Diane,

Thank you very much for the cute gift tags, what a lovely present and such a good idea.

Also, thank you for your assistance and guidance to this group, it is very much appreciated.

I have had my 12000 for almost one year, it has gone really fast - will have to give my baby a birthday party, lol.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year, may 2013 see you healthy, wealthy and wise (me too!)

Best wishes,
Nita

I use the feet by Creative feet for couching - and all sorts of other techniques.

replaced my Designer SE with the Janome 12000 and have a question about selecting stitch number. On the Designer I could enter a specific stitch number to go to without having to press the advance key. For example if my design had 12000 stitches and I was at 1, I could enter stitch number 5000 and it would advance to that stitch instantly without cycling through the first 4999 stitches. I can't find a way to do that with my Janome. Which, if you accidentally hit the wrong key and it takes you back to the beginning and you were really at stitch 15000, and the only way you can get back there is press the + key until it cycles though all those stitches, is a real pain. Please tell me there is a way to do that. I'll still love my Janome if there isn't, but I'm hoping there is. Thanks!
Sorry jsoren, the 12000 doesn't have that feature. The closest you can come,to my knowledge, is use the color selection arrows along with the + or - keys. But being a 20+ year Husqvarna girl (& I still have my Ruby), I can say it's a small inconvenience. This machine is a true gem & workhorse. Not to mention that the accessories are much more affordable.
