Re: Memory Stick

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

The size of the USB memory "stick" has no bearing on the amount of work that the machine has to do to read it. It's a simple exchange of electrical signals that has no wear effect on the machine. It also has no relationship to the built-in memory. The only consequence of buying more memory than you need is that you will spend more money,
But due to the growing scarcity of small capacity memory you likely will have little choice.

Hi Jim, can you please tell me how to do wind a bobbin on the 12000 for thick thread to use in the bobbin. [On the 11000 we bypassed the spring and just took it around the hook onto the bobbin].

my understanding that the 12000 doesn't care about the size of the memory stick unlike the 11000 that doesn't like anything bigger than a 2gb.

Yes, on the back the ideal mix is two strips of needle thread with a strip of bobbin up the middle, with all 3 strips about the same width. Sounds like yours is spot on!

"correction of minor issues from version 1.0" is all the notes you get. This is typical Janome. It's been our experience that the big issue was not being able to reliably connect a computer to the machine.

So glad I found this group. I have had my 12000 since 11/21 and am in heaven. I already found the answer to my first question, which had to do with the 7mm Q3 stitch.
I too wondered if they went the wrong way on the scant quarter inch. Glad I am not alone in that thinking. Has anyone seen release notes for the version 1.01 upgrade? Would like to know what was fixed besides the addition of the languages before I upgrade. Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Re: Memory Stick

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

The logic behind using small capacity memory devices has to do with how the devices are formatted in Windows. Models prior to the 12000 use the original Microsoft disk formatting scheme, whic is only good upto 2GB. That's why it was necessary to stay at 2GB or below. However the "normal" (meaning non-sewing) use of USB and CompactFlash memory is photos and data storage, where users want bigger amounts of memory. Consequently the devices get bigger and bigger, and the small ones are a lot harder to find. In the days of the 10000 we couldn't fill 8MB, and you'll never fill 8GB, but that just may be the smallest you can find!

Hi,

What my dealer told me was to NEVER use a large USB. The processors in our sewing machines don't like them. Also remember that the larger they are the longer it will take to load designs into the machine. Why on earth would you want to put more than a few designs to stitch out on a USB anyway. You can only do on design at a time. If you must have a very large memory USB, use it to store the designs as a backup for your computer.

After saying all that, I helped a lady with a MC10000, so out of date that I didn't even recognize what the files were on her PC Card. She had the whole Stitchitize 3000 designs on that one card or perhaps 2. I was horrified that she had been stitching away for years. I had her machine upgraded to the version 3 so that I could help her as she does not have a computer. Go figure BUT her card was a 256mb as that machine doesn't use USB's.

Still, my advise is to stay small, it's easier on the processor in your expensive embroidery machine. My dealer also sells Pfaff, Bernina and Babylock and she says that they all prefer the smaller memory devices.

I know how you feel! Hope everything works out for you!  I'm looking forward to learning all about mine as well as the new software.  Haven't had mine long and had to take it back to my dealer this week for some tension issues that needed addressed but looking forward now to starting some projects after company next weekend!  The week prior to Christmas I might actually have time to start!  :)

Re: keeping bobbin cases straight and keeping bobbins straight as well...

I use a fine sharpie to write on my bobbn what kind of thread is on it (when I'm, afraid that I forget or won't recognize it in the future) or the color number.  It stays on for quite a while.

To help me remember which bobbin case is which, I use a sharpie marker and write in the bottom of each bobbin case. EMB in the case with the yellow dot and REG in the other one. That way I don't have to refer to the manual or depend on my memory. After a while the marks need refreshing, but not too often.

Jim,
So does this mean 1/3 of top thread on either side of design with 1/3 of bobbin thread showing in the center on the back side of design? If so, my embroidery now that my dealer adjusted the tensions is great!

A simple "rule of thumb" is 1/3 - 1/3 - 1/3 of top - bobbin - top thread. If you are not using Janome bobbin thread you should use the yellow dot case and you should get the 'thirds' result.

Re: Memory Stick

Hi Cheryl
 
What you say is very true about the earlier Janome embroidery machines – small is better—but that is not the case with the 12000.  As I mentioned, the software engineer right from Janome Japan attended our meeting at Institute and told us that the size of the USB stick on the 12000 is no longer an issue.  The processor is quite different than earlier machines.  Owners can use any size they wish.  The only thing I would add is that any software that comes on the larger capacity USB sticks must be removed.
