Re: Janome machine woes

Hi Donna

My computer won't allow me to answer you directly - I am doing the 8 inch blocks and so is everyone else in my group - Our hoop sister's dealer is keeping abreast of all changes and I am the only one have machine problems - There is another person using the 12000 and she is having no problems at all. This has been an ongoing concern with my 12000 - it is just it is showing up much more since I started this intense embroidery. I am waiting to hear what Janome has to say before I do any more embroidery - it breaks my heart everytime the machine goes crunch and stops because the bobbin case has jumped.

Thanks for your thoughts

All the 5 inch blocks have been re-done. The stitches for the quilting designs were too short and too dense!

Re: Janome 12000 Updated Machine

FWIW... I have a stitch regulator on my Bernina Artista and much prefer just to do free motion on my 12000. I disconnect the foot control, set the speed slider to a comfortable midpoint, then just push the start button and free motion away.  I have very good control and find it easier than using the stitch regulator on the Artista where I have to use the foot control.  I also find my stitches far more accurate and the quilting looks better...

Pricing is never announced in advance of a new machine. Since you are

the 12000 is indeed replaced as the top model, prices should drop on the
12000, especially given that there will likely be trade-ins

Re: MC 12000 work book

Keep in mind it is probably not a printed book it is probably a CD for you to print out and put in a binder.  Not too many machine dealers or companies provide you with a printed workbook any more, they let you go through the expense of printing it off yourself.

Re: Janome 12000 Updated Machine

I have viewed it and saw it at the Sewing Expo.  When asking questions about being able to scan quilt blocks into the program they said no we needed to use the ones built into the program.  I also watched a demo video at that time and the features it has are no different than MBX which is the Janome software and to me the MBX is more user friendly.  Remember  with Floriani we may be able to save the design in JEF but then we would have to find the hoop to fit where as MBX we can not only use the built in hoops that are in the software we can create the hoops.

Re: Janome 12000 Updated Machine

maggie cooper
 

I looked at it, spoken at length to an ex Janome educator who is now a Floriani educator, but found the Floriani software lacked a few functions the Janome software has. Apart from different names for functions, it is very similar to Janomes software MBX. There is a price difference in MBX's favour.
If you are a Janome embroidery machine owner, then get the Janome software, it is designed for Janome machines. One of the selling points the Floriani software  boasts is Total Control, a new way of saying  'fabric management settings', something the Janome software has had since version 2.
 
I've tried various programs, owned and used seven embroidery software programs, and still find the Janome software more than fits my needs and my user interface preference. There isn't a software package out there that will make  its user a fantastic digitiser, that only comes with understanding  the software used inside out, patience, effort, and a great deal of experience. Am I biased, you bet I am, after investing a great deal of money in embroidery software just to learn it isn't what a program does or doesn't have but how much effort you are willing to invest in learning to digitise, but not allowing a program to do it for you, I realised I could have purchased  a new car with the monies I spent on software.
