Re: Designs on USB stick

sew3emb
 

Thank for the suggestion, Mona..I use Embird and seeing Jim's comment can't do that.
I really thought I did everything the same on each design but will recheck and also look at in sew simulator and watch stitch out.
Next step will be a trip to dealer.
Thanks, Zoe

No, it won't. JAN files cannot be read by Janome machines, only by Janome Digitizer software.

Buttonholes on the 12k machine

Julie
 

LOL – thanks for reminding me about that foot.  I actually bought one that is specifically for the 12k machine and had forgotten about it.  We have too many things these days to know what we have!

 

Julie

 

I think there's a "B" foot that is made for those longer buttonholes. I know it exists for the 7mm plate. You can use that to make buttonholes as long as your arm and they do stay straight.

I'm new to my Janome 12000 and need some help.  When centering a design in the hoop and the fabric is off by a bit, how would I jog the center needle position over to the center?  With my Brother you just jogged the keys right or left, up or down a few bumps as needed.  My Janome jogs but it moves the design in software but the needle does not move on the machine.  What am I doing wrong?

I have a Designer SE - so when I need one of the 45-50 wonderful feet that I

trying to make a buttonhole on the MC12000 last week and the buttonhole foot
does not make a buttonhole longer than a tiny bit over 1". I had a button
that was 1 1/8 and it would not fit in the foot to make that size
buttonhole. I had to make my buttonhole on the Viking and use the Viking
Buttonhole foot. It will make just about any size buttonhole. With the
Janome it's possible to make longer buttonholes, but you have to use a
regular foot and then hope that you can keep everything straight. I've not
had good luck doing that.

See my write up here

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/janome12000/message/3774

You are correct that it will not correctly line up so you'll have to make adjustments to the drop needle position for straight stitches, or for straight stitches and just a few more stitches like zig zag and blanket stitches you need to select a Sewing Application (see pages 67-83 of the manual). Best to manually check if your needle clears the presser foot opening first. The MC12000 will not allow you to adjust the needle drop position for decorative stitches as far as I can tell, which is something that I have been using for years on my other machines quite frequently.

I love this extra large foot control for Janome machines.  I am using it with the MC12000 and it’s wonderful.  It doesn’t slip and slide around and I’m very happy Janome thought of this.  I think it might fit most Janome machines that are computerized.

Re: acufil kit review

Donna Morton
 

I use MBX and the Acufil program hand in hand as well, just as Virginia explains.  One template, with the quilting design in the centre of the hoop and measurements for marking down the length of a border all evenly spaced. 
 
The two programs together make things much easier.

I do own MBX and the reason I love the Acufil is because of the calculating part of the program as well as being able to know the number of hoopings and being able to put in my measurements to determine the borders.
 
I find that both MBX and the Acufil program can work hand in hand for me.   If  I choose to do stipple, I can adjust my loop spacing in the MBX and then save as a JEF and import into the quilt program.  That way I am not limited to the stipple designs that default in the quilt program.
 
Last but most least I love the 8,7 X 8.7 sewing area in the quilting hoop.  I also use it for a lot of my embroidering and do not waste as much stabilizer as I do using the larger hoops in the 12,000 when I do not need to.
 
I love quilting, but I am an in the hoop quilter and most of my quilts I do with the Hoopsisters designs.  I finish the quilts with my own borders and in the hoop.  Not being or feeling comfortable with free motion I guess I depend on the program more than others do.

Dear Virginia,
Thank you for the suggestion, but I did read the help files completely, and if need be, could design a wonderful quilt pattern with the program to "highlight" its features, but it is way too limiting. I do not design my quilts based on the limitations of a software program, but decide on the designs and expect to be able to recreate it in my software , in the size, etc, I desire.

do you by chance own MBX, and if so , could you explaind why you would use the acufil over MBX? I still see no reason to ever use the acufil software.

But I do like the hoop! Wish it was an option to have bought without paying for the software.
