Re: 2 spool thread stand-can't attach the guide

Virginia
 

The thread stand for the 11,000 can be used for the 12,000 but you need to get the little part that is round not square. for it.  I traded my 11,000 one in and did not know I could order just the small part.
 
The one for the 12.000 part is 859430009.  It has to be attached with the screws it will not hang like the 11,000.  I took the # off of the box.

You may have the wrong spool stand. Part #858402009 is sold as "Spool Stand for Horizon Models", but it's for the 7700, 8200 and 8900. You need part #859429005, which is for the 12000. There is a small difference in the attachment - the Horizon stand (858...) catches on the top cover and the thread guide is square. The 12000 stand (859...) fits better and has a semi-circular pin for the guide.

Janet, was not the 11000SE considered an entirely new machine and then the upgrade for the older 11000s was available to give it all the features of the new SE.
It would be nice if there was some sort of upgrade for our machines. I am stIll exploring and learning finer points of editing and custom stitches and other thing in Horizon Link and perfecting acufil. I think I will remain happy with what I have for there is so much it will do and I haven't yet begun to do it all. :-).

It took me 25 years to get myself to purchase the TOL machine. If they come out with a new TOL, I will not be happy. Upgrade, I can deal with, but a brand new machine will irritate me more than a little.

Dear Jim,

I agree fully with your statement, our beloved MC12000 is a dream machine and we are so lucky to own one. So, while I am also looking forward to seeing what the new machine will look like, I am so happy with my two Janome babies - I like the 7700 also a lot and yes, I feel privileged that I could buy them. I believe that many more years will pass till substantial progress is made...and then I will be maybe too old for sewing...

Re: Recommended photo software

What machine are you using to stitch these out? Not a 12000 if you're saying that they're well over 100,000 stitches! A 9900 perhaps? or an MB4 not any other brand, I hope (:-))

I used embroidery thread in top and bobbin, don't remember if its poly or not I think it was. You have to use a very heavy stabilizer and heavy paper tear away. I put the sticky back stuff in hoop have the sticky side up were you can put your ironed and starched fabric you stitch on, float a piece of heavy weight stabilizer and heavy weight tear away under your hoop. I use the basing feature on my 11000SE Janome
Then start sewing. You digitize in embird, save the EOF file, then save it again in the format your sewing machine uses, mine is JEF. You will have to play with or practice,practice.practice with the parameters till you get the look you want. I do sections at a time, but you must make sure you over lap the seat ions a little bit, so you don't have open spaces you don't want in those areas.
Remember heavy weight stabilizer, I use the heaviest one I can find. There are well over 100,000 stitches in my designs. Hope this helps you. Happy stitching.

Re: Writing stitch files to USB, machine doesn't see them

janetpiekarski
 

If you open HorizonLink and click on File Manager in that top menu bar and then click on embroidery formats (or words like that, the first choice anyway) that will give you the double sided screen where you can take designs and put them either on the machine itself, USB1 or USB2. It's the foolproof way to transfer designs and make folders on your sticks as well (by right clicking in the white area on the right side by the way)

Hi Carole - I feel the same way.  I just bought my Janome MC 12000 this January and didn't realize it had been out for a couple of years already.  Would I have waited if I realized that...I don't know?  I know I've enjoyed "playing" with the MC12K and if I waited I wouldn't have had the fun learning embroidery.  It will be interesting to see what the new TOL machine is like though.

Hi,

I found a solution, it works when I have  load the stitches from the stick into the machine. But the machine doesn't read them directly from the stick.
Btw, I used the Horizon program to send them.

Are you using Horizon Link to put the designs on the USB stick? It knows where they need to go for the machine to see them. If you are using Windows Explorer, then the designs must go in a folder and that folder must itself be in the EMB folder. If you don't follow this rule, the machine will not see the designs.

You can purchase just the thread guide. I did, have your dealer check with
Janome. My dealer still has some it stock because when he ordered one for

he bought extras.

Re: New TOL machine in August

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

You make a very good point. As a former dealer, I can tell you that the prospect of a new TOL machine puts a lot of pressure on getting the existing stock GONE! When the new model starts shipping, dealers will have a lot of 12000s coming in as trade-ins, and in most cases they have no profit, or even a loss, until the trade-in gets sold. So for those who may be lurking in envy of the 12000 owners, your time in the sun is coming. The closer it gets to time for the new model to ship, the more likely your dealer is to make you a VERY good deal.

Jim I so agree.  I wish those that feel bad would start thinking about  the wonderful features we have instead of what we don't have.  I have had Janome's from the MC 5700 on up and I am so happy with my 12,000 and would not trade it in for anyting.  We have the best of both worlds with our machine.
