Re: Question re the 9.1" x 11.8" hoop

Gerri,

I don't know if you got an answer of the 12000 hoops. All of the hoops are a one design hoop, meaning that you don't need to split any as long as the design fits in the dimensions of the hoop. i.e.: 230 X 300 - GR hoop; 230 X 230 - SQ23; 140 X 140 - SQ14; and 100 X 140 - FA10. I've given the metric measurements as they reflect the names of hoops. So if you have a design that is 230 cm X 299 (300) and is less than 100,000 stitches, you can embroider it in the GR hoop. If your design is more than 100,000, you will need to split it. Someone else will have to comment on that as I haven't encountered because I haven't stitched a very large design.

Re: New owner janome 12000 Thread

Hello Robin,
what is the problem with the thread, is it the quality or just that it doesn't have colour numbers?

I recommend to start with designs that have not so many colour changes. Good digitizers don't use lots of colours. By changing the direction of the stitches and therefore the way the stitches reflect the light, they can make colour variations as well.

Then have a look at the name of the colours. And think of what you know about the design. If you do a flower, you know the stem and leaves have to be green. And the flower can be yellow, pink etc. Then look at the value of the colours, is it a light, a medium or a dark. That should help with selecting the colours. And finally, all the colours you are planning to use, have to look good together.
That way you don't have to be a slave of colournumbers.

Just be brave and don't be afraid to make mistakes.

Hi Kathy,

I'm hoping you can learn a bit from my mistakes.

My first (and only at this point) embroidery machine is my Janome 11000SE, which is a very easy machine to use. (I haven't committed to the 12000 yet, but hope to soon.)

Anyway, my mistake was buying about 60 spools of no-name thread on eBay before I bought the machine, I was so excited to get started embroidering. But I didn't know which colors to pick, they don't have numbers that I can use to figure out the colors with the embroidery machine, and now I don't want to waste all that money that I spent, so I haven't bought much more thread. As a consequence, I rarely embroider because I don't have the right threads.

If I had it to do over again, I would have figured out which threads worked well on my machine, either through this group or by buying one or two of a brand first, and seeing how well it stitches out. (I suspect the 12000, like the 11000SE, will take any brand of thread without complaint, but I'm sure others on this group will let you know.)

I also would have made sure that the brand(s) I bought could be matched to the suggested colors on the machine. When I see a design I like with 15-20 thread changes I get overwhelmed with having to match the colors on my own.

Right now what I'm thinking of buying thread for each design I buy, as a way to build up a new supply of thread without breaking the bank at one time.

Finally, I would buy polyester instead of rayon.

Hope this helps a little bit,

Robin

Welcome Kathy...there is lots of information here. I would also high recommend that you should get Jim's video on using the sewing part of the 12000....very informative. He is coming up with another one for the embroidery section which he will let us know about when it's ready...
 
Happy sewing/embroidering

The 12,000 hoops require no turning or splitting like the 11,000 or the other machines.

Gerri, if the design would fit inside the embroidery area then you don't have to do anything but load it and stitch it out.  If you have the MBX software you can check how it fits by opening the software, choosing that hoop, and then bringing in the design and checking it.

I have owned a lot of machines and brands, the 12000 is the only machine I have ever owned that does everything really good. Yes I do love my machine! And Janomes in general.

Re: Thinking of purchasing the MC12000

Hi,

I moved from Pfaff to the Janome 12000 and love it. I wanted a sewing/quilting/embroidery machine with bigger throat, brighter lighting and a bigger hoop that I didn't have to turn around.

I was worried that I would miss the built-in dual feed but with Janome you get two different sized accufeed feet with different feet to attach to each. I have quilted using both the spring hopping foot and the accufeed feet. There is a great fabric guide that goes on the embroidery arm and is adjusted to size on the screen. It makes channel quilting so easy and accurate.

There are plenty of decorative stitches which I loved on my Pfaff and it embroiders beautifully on toweling, fleece as well as smooth fabrics.

I know this doesn't have anything to do with sewing but the machine runs very quietly, which I really like.

I don't know anything about the 4120 qde but the 12000 is fabulous!!! Sounds like your dealer is giving you a great deal with two machines.

Best of luck,

Estelle
