Embroidery Library as a very large area devoted to embroidery placement and working on various fabrics. Plus it's not a video, you just read it the old fashioned way :)

Re: proper foot error message- My Solution

j2291us <STICHER98@...>
 

After reading some of the other posts I took the throat plate off, removed the bobbin, etc. and cleaned the dust and fuzzies out (there wasn't much). I was careful replacing everything and the machine has been working great. So maybe it was the fuzzies or the plate off center but I am glad she has stopped beeping and stopping every few stitches. Thanks for all of your helpful suggestions

My dealer got the ones he ordered in October befor Christmas. I have been using mine as well as the foot control thread cutter on my 8900 since about 2 wks before Christmas.

Remember to always press the bull's eye when changing the plate.

I hit the X and begin stitching again and a few minutes later get the message again and more fequently as each day progresses. I am using the 9 mm-AD foot, Stitch 1, DFS engaged (yellow). I am sewing on 2 layers of flannel. NAy suggestions? It is becoming anoying. Thamks

Re: machine sewing slowly

janetpiekarski
 

That is mis information-I keep my bobbin at "0" and haven't had any problems.

My machine has been sewing very s. l. o. w. l. y.... turns out slow sewing happens in QUIET mode
The mechanic also showed me how to set the bobbin fill detector. When the MC 12000 was first released it was not possible to set the bobbin fill detector lower than 2. Now it is. But do not set it to 0 or the machine may jam. I was told to set it at .5
Now I will be able to sew FAST and not have to waste so much bobbin thread.

That remote thread cutter won't work on the 12000-be fore warned. There is no port on the 12 for it.

Re: calibrating the cloth setter

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

Was the hoop for your embroidery project the same one that you used for calibration? The manual is not real clear on this, but hoop calibration on the machine is on a per-hoop basis, meaning that you have to calibrate it for each hoop separately. You can reset the machine calibration using the "Reset All to Defaults" option on the Common SET screen, last page. This also resets everything else, so you'll have to make other adjustments after doing it.

Jim & Diane, If you can answer this question directly to me that's okay. I'm having a problem calibrating my 12K clothsetter. I followed the directions that came with the clothsetter exactly, using the stitch crosshair in the machine, stitched it out, set the hoop on the clothsetter and made the adjustments to line up perfectly. When I then hoop up a real embroidery project using the clothsetter and then attach to the machine the center isn't the same center. When I first bought my machine, before a clothsetter was available, I had also followed the instructions on calibrating the hoop directly on the machine (as per the manual) so is that interfering? Should I set the calibration in the machine back to it's default if that's possible?
Thanks for any help you may give!


Clothsetters for Janome 12000 now in Canada

Just had email from Red Deer Sewing Center in Alberta - the clothsetters are now in $179 plus $30 shipping still cheaper than a 4 hour road trip in maybe not the best winter conditions total $219.45 which is tax and shipping included.

Re: To buy or not to buy? Video

Patricia Ward
 

That is a great video and is exactly what my dealer stated about some of the big box store sewing machines coming in for repair. He also said he has seen two instances of where the plastic parts in a serger melted together. So this quality would apply to a serger as well.

Thanks to all who responded to my questions. You all brought up some points I hadn't thought about. I am really getting excited about taking the plunge!

Hello Everyone,
I spent about 2 hours today with a very nice dealer who showed me the 12000, as well as discussed models below it. The 12000 is $8,000, double what the 8800's price is. So, is everyone happy they went with the embroidery? How much do you actually use it? Is $8,000 a good price? The dealer said that includes the embroidery case, but not the hard machine case, and I would have to buy the Acu Fill software that does all the extra quilting patterns separately for $499. What kind of things were included with your machines? If you compared this to Babylock, Bernina or Brother machines, what factors lead you to buy the Janome?

I appreciate any comments and thoughts, as this is a BIG purchase and I am on the fence about the price tag. I have an cottage sewing business, doing everything from bridesmaids' dresses to zipper repairs. I quilt when there's time, and love to make doll clothes and pretty things for my girls. I own a used Bernette Deco that I have done very little with because I haven't figured out how to get motifs from the computer to the machine....buying used meant no lessons! This is an attractive feature of buying new from a dealer who offers unlimited lessons!

Thanks, Katy
Katy, IMHO, the 1200 is hands down. the best sewing & embroidery machine
I've ever owned. I can't talk about Acufil as I don't have it. I use
my machine all the time even though I have 3 others.

Thank you so much.  I will call my dealer first thing Monday morning and see if he will replace my hoop.

There is an extra large foot control available for Janome machines.  I ordered one from a dealer back in October and it still has not come in.  Has anyone else ordered one and been able to get it?  I’m sure that Hurricane Sandy delayed a lot of shipments but I’ve heard that other dealerships do have them.  Anyone know?
