Thank you all for your responses. I wish I could keep both my 350e and 6300 and still get the 12000, as i have never had trouble out of either, but we are getting ready for retirement and downsizing so space is a consideration in addition to cost. Hopefully I will get to play with one this week. Keeping my fingers crossed! Barbara

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. ;)

I agree with Vicki that you can't enter a stitch to jump to it, but as you hold the + or - button longer, it starts skipping more stitches at a time. First by ones, then tens, then hundreds. I'm not sure if it goes all the way to skipping by thousands. Also, if you know the stitch you need is in a certain color, you can advance to the start of that color and then use the + key to get to the specific stitch.

I can't compare, I didn't have one before. I know it had a different part# than the one for 11K, that could be so they could charge more????

Is this the case? I thought it might be different because of the 9mm

Joy, why doesn't the Miracle Stitcher work on the 12000? I just thought it would since it worked on my 11K. Jim, do you have the old part number for the Miracle Stitcher foot?

My needle threader hasn't worked since the day I took my 12000 out of the box. I will get it repaired when I take my machine for servicing.

The minor inconvenience of the needle threader is far outweighed by the wonderful features that do work.

Try using the 9mm beading foot - there are 2 - wide groove and narrow groove. I used the wide groove to couch some Christmas cording and it worked just great.

Thank you, yes I am looking forward to trying it out. I have a Babylock Evolution serger that I also love and would consider the Ellisimo but cost will be more even with trade-in at the BL dealer.

What about the updates on the 12000? How often do they come out and at what expense? As I am a quilter I am particularly interest in the Accufil. Thanks, Barbara

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.

Re: Couching foot?

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.

Re: Purchase Anxiety

joylaytor
 

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.

Re: circle stitcher

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.

Re: circle stitcher

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

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.

Re: Couching foot?

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

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.
