Re: Help - is there a "blue dot" bobbin case for the 12000?

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

The blue dot case is a standard bobbin case with reduced tension for free motion quilting. We have not found it necessary on the 12000. Use the regular (red dot) bobbin case and you should be fine.

I am taking a free motion quilting class and was told by the instructor (she has Janome 66,000) that I should get a blue dot bobbin. I have not heard this before. I know the 66,000 and other models use this, but do I need one for my 12,000? Thank you ahead of time.

Re: Walking foot

manyamile1 <no_reply@...>
 

I believe it is called "Dual Feed Holder (Twin)" with the "Dual Feed Foot AD" that is the wide based walking foot.

There is also a narrow set for when you are sewing near edges. that is the "Dual Feed Holder (Single)" with the "Dual Feed Foot VD"

There are pictures on page 3 of the Instruction Book.

Good luck!

There are several options on the page and you will have to scroll down to see all of them.

Thanks!

First change to a Janome bobbin. If your Bernina bobbin is metal, it will drag from the magnet that holds the bobbin case in, creating extra bobbin tension. Your problem is that the bobbin tension is greater than the needle tension. Next, when threading, be sure to use the LOCK OUT button. This opens the tension disks so that the thread will slide between them properly. If you don't do that it may not seat correctly. You may need to tighten the top tension. The default tension for the Patchwork 1/4 inch stitch is 3.8, and you may need 4.0 or more.

Hi Jim,
I am using a universal 80 needle to piece 100% cotton. I am using the wide hole plate, and I've tried both Mettler 100% polyester and Gutterman 100% cotton thread in both the needle and bobbin. I have tried each combination and nothing seems to give me the perfect stitch. The problem is the underside thread. The loops from above are sitting on the bottom of the fabric, rather than being buried between the two layers. So, while the top stitches look perfect, the bottom is standing out like a ridge, not pulled into the fabric. I have changed bobbins as well, since I have a number of machines and have trouble distinguishing janome from other types. Right now I have a bernina bobbin in the machine. Could this be the problem?

What are you seeing? Loops, puckering, or ??? What needle are you using? What fabric? Single hole plate or wide hole? What thread? Once we have some information we may be able to help.

Feet

Janice Mawhiney
 

Hi
I am starting a quilt class that will have me using lots of different feet (9 different feet). Can you please help me know what feet to use or buy? The feet I am unsure about are a candlewicking foot, a hole cording foot, a piping foot, a couching foot, and a fringe foot.
Thanks for the help,
Janice

We're going to take a chance and start taking your orders now, so that we can be prepared to ship as soon as we receive the DVDs. This DVD is going to have a final retail price of $54.95. As before, we are offering a special price to members of this list. The discounted price is $39.95. If you missed volume 1, and want to order both volumes, the discounted total will be $69.95. If you have already bought volume 1 for $44.95 you will receive an email with instructions on how to order volume 2 for an additional discount. With the exception of those who we are emailing, order from this page:

We may be able to continue shipping in my absence, but I wouldn't count on it. A lot of stuff has been happening in our lives right now and I cannot promise we'll be able to ship while I'm gone. If you order both DVDs you will get it shipped as 2 separate packages. This is due to postal regulations regarding size, shape and other things. Shipping both in one package would cost us more than twice as much, and in the case of shipments outside the US, it would me standing in line at the slowest post office in the world. When shipment is made, we will send you an email. You might not get it if you have anti-spam software installed. The sending address will be softwar1@ We can't change that, as the email is sent directly by the website.
