Re: bobbin thread nesting question

Maria Boyle
 

I am having the same problem. When the embroidery gets to a certain spot it gets stuck there creating a birds nest underneath. I removed the hoop, had a hard time as the thread was jammed in the stitch plate. I am using the one hole stitch plate. I then change the bobbin case to the embroidery bobbin case, thinking that was the problem, but the I tried embroidering again, the same thing happened in the same exact spot. Don't know what I'm doing wrong. The stitch that the embroidery is stitching out when this happens is a satin stitch.

Re: Bobbin thread question

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

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

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.

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.

Not quite as free as YouTube, but (in our humble opinion) more informative and contains information on 43 separate feet and attachments!

Re: Needle Threader Problem 12000

Sherry Martin
 

Boy you are such a genius! I wish you could live with me for a couple of weeks until I figure out everything on the machine. I had an 11000 before and I was an accountant and know computers so I thought I would just breeze thru. The learning curve is higher than I thought.

The hook on the needle threader has to be small enough to go through the eye of a needle. Unfortunately that makes it very fragile and easily bent. Factory calibration is done using a 14 needle, which has a bigger eye than a size 11, which is about the smallest you can count on the threader to work with. However if the threader is not lined up PERFECTLY it can get bent on sizes smaller than 14. I used to use a size 11 to set the threader just to make sure everything was right. I cannot remember us ever having a class in the store where there wasn't at least one needle threader to fix. This was true for every single threader design, from the old "push button" ones to the motorized to the pull-down styles. In truth the best threader is the external one provided with the MB-4 and some of the sergers. It can still get bent, but you just get a new one - problem solved. Adjusting the threader is a tedious repair, and I don't miss doing it!

Your embroidery speed issue is due to the machine being set in "Quiet" mode. That affects quite a number of things, including the top speed. Turn off Quiet mode and you'll be rocking again!

Hi,

My machine came with a size 14 needle. When I changed to the Janome blue size 12 needle I am having trouble with the hook for auto needle threading getting thru the needle. I have to push the needle over to the left a little and then push down the threader. Has anyone else had that problem? Or do I have the needle in wrong. I had a lot of trouble finding the spot to stick it up into when I changed the needle.

Also when I try to change the speed in the embroidery mode, it is set on 400 and it is grayed out and won't let me increase the speed. My dealer couldn't figure out what was wrong either over the phone so they are going to look at it when I go in for my lesson next week. Has anyone else had a problem like that?

Re: Dual feed 1/4 inch foot

Diane suggests using the Cloth Guide in tandem with the 1/4 inch foot. Set it for a 1/4 inch seam and it extends the guide for easy alignment.

Re: At last the great HOrizon 12000

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

There's actually a Sashiko stitch in the 12000. Touch the Applications key (T-shirt), then Quilting, then Sculpture and it's the third one on that screen. You'll use the AD dual feed foot, as called for on the screen, with your regular thread in needle and bobbin. You can also achieve a hand-stitched look using one of the stitches in the Hand Look section of the Quilting application. Those use monofilament in the needle and quilting thread on the bobbin.

Good Morning:

With the 11,000SE for a Shashiko stiich directions were to use stitch #63 (
hand look quilting stitch)and use monofilament thread on the top of the
machine and Janome Acrylic thread in the bobbin.

I think with our 12,000 it is the same procedure just look for the Hand
Look quilting stitch I am not sure what # it would be, but it should be in
the application feature.
