Glad you learned a lot so you can pass it on to me in the spring.  Wish I had my machine here to work with.  Hope Laura learned some things too so they keep the store going when John hangs it up.

On the 11000 you can adjust the "alert" point of the low bobbin sensor. Touch the SET key, then the Ordinary Sewing key. It should come up to page SET1. The second setting adjusts the warning point. Use the minus key to set it as low as it will go. If it continues to come on prematurely you can have your dealer adjust the sensor. It's a very simple and quick adjustment that does not require opening the machine.

Aqua Magic is a water soluble stabilizer. Are you doing freestanding lace (FSL)? If not, this is not a good stabilizer for dense designs non-lace designs. Cut away would be better. If you are doing FSL you might try using a fine serger thread. Janome makes 60wt and 90wt serger thread that makes great FSL. Few dealers carry it, and it's more expensive than any other serger thread, but it does make great lace.

I changed the needle to the blue one. Was using the needle that came already attached tithe machine, which was a red one. I'm almost done with the design, hopefully that will solve the problem. As for stabilizer, I am using inspira aqua magic.

I plan to make a few more. Will be interesting to know if this time around all will go smooth sailing. If it happens again in the same area, then its the design.

Thanks again for your reply.

Are you using anything on the inner hoop to keep the aqua magic from slipping?  If the aqua magic is slipping, then the problem you describe can happen because the registration of the design in now off.  The needle will be hitting a dense area that wouldn’t be there if the aqua magic was held firmly in the hoop.  Sometimes you also need to use two layers of aqua magic to preserve the registration of high density lace designs.

Re: Bobbin thread question

Sherry Martin
 

Thanks again. It sure is interesting the different info you get from different people. Every time someone tells me you can't do something, it seems like someone else comes up with a way to do it. At first these little quirks made me slightly regret my decision about purchasing the machine, but I am finding more and more cool things everyday that this machine does and the 11000 didn't do. One of the best is the auto presser foot lifter and pivot lifter which you can adjust in height. I actually had that on a machine before my 11000 and I always missed it. I also love the dual feed feet, but I'm still getting used to putting them on the machine. Hopefully it will get easier the more I do it.

In embroidery mode the machine checks the bobbin supply immediately after the START button is pressed, and at various times during embroidery. Once it has been determined to be too low, it won't sew again until you change the bobbin.

In ordinary sewing mode, the bobbin is also checked from time to time when you stop sewing. When the bobbin is found to be low, a message pops up indicating that it's low. However you can continue to sew. The message will continue to pop up, but you can ignore it. You don't even have to touch the X to get rid of the message - just pressing the foot control will do that. So if you want to use up old bobbins in piecing you should have no problem doing that.

I went for a lesson on my 12000 today and did learn that unlike the 11000 you can't keep sewing after you get the low bobbin warning and you can't turn the warning off. My teacher is hoping this might be something they correct with some kind of software update later. On my 11000 when I was sewing patchwork I would just keep sewing until bobbin thread was gone; I even saved bobbins for embroidery to "use up" when doing patchwork, but I guess I can't do that anymore.

Re: Bobbin thread question

Yes it does.  It gives you a warning and then will not let you sew again until you put a new bobbin in.  I found that out just last night.  I still had thread in the bobbin but not much.  I have my bobbin sensor set on 2.
 
I love this feature among others.  Before I purchased my machine I had the 11,000Se and thought how could they improve on the 11,000SE.  Well now I now.  I am finding out new things each time I use it.
