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.

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. ;)

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.

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....

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,

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.

using stitches available on MC12000 with MBX digitizer

Has anyone been able to import the wonderful array of digital stitches available on the MC12000 into MBX digitizer?

Re: Advance Stitch count

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

There's good news and bad news. The bad news is that you cannot enter a stitch number to go to directly. However the good news is that if you keep your finger on the plus button, the machine will initially advance 1 stitch at a time, then 10 at a time, and then 100 at a time. So you can get where you need to be pretty quickly. Also, if you have activated the Resume function in the Embroidery SET screen, whenever you stop embroidering you can turn the machine off and when you turn it back on it will pick up where you stopped. Finally, to skip to a specific section even faster, you can touch the last color that you want to skip, and stitching will start at the next color after that.

Re: Can't save as JEF :(

maggie cooper
 

As you are using MBX, and have a 12000, why don't you save in the 12000 format, JPX. As you are getting digitiser ( can't replicate the Janome design)embroidery design, you have saved in the default Jan.
Instead of uninstalling, a bad idea with MBX, use the Revert command which re establishes the program's factory settings. You will find the Revert Command under... Start/All Programs/Janome/a list of options will open under the Janome folder, and Revert is on that list.

MBX is partnered with another program, Corel, and by uninstalling and reinstalling you run the risk of breaking the linking program, using the Revert command fixes 90% of of unexpected program behaviours. So use that first and keep uninstall as a last resort, to be used after contacting tech support if Revert and tech support doesn't fix the problem.

I have tried to uninstall and install the prg without luck, I have even installed in another computer - same problem.
