Yes, you can, open the design in edit mode, save it to a usb drive and transfer to your computer. I've done that for a few of the designs.

I have an inbuilt design I like on the machine and would like to be able to edit it in my 5D software to use it with another design. What I want to know, is it possible to put it on a USB from the machine to be able to use it in my software. Liz

No need actually.  If you have loaded the HorizonLink software then all the built-in designs are already on your computer.  Look in documents>HorizonLink.

ditch quilting

I has anyone used the 11000 convertible even feed set on their 12000. I'm looking at the open toe with the ditch guide. I like the accu feet but miss the open toe and ditch guide,sure hope that it is on the new feet list.

Re: AccuFeed

Our Janome Educator uses all the stitches with the accufeed foot.  I have used many of them myself with no problem.  Just do not select the Accufeed option and all the stitches are available for use.  It will not cause any problems.

Officially, I guess. But if it did what you wanted why not use it?
Maybe Jim could tell us if it could cause problems???

If you don't 'tell' the 12000 you are going to use the accufeed foot by hitting the button, it won't grey out all the stitches. Just select they stitch you want with the accufeed foot attached. Some stitches might not stitch out as well with the accufeed foot, but most will. I did most decorative stitches on my 6600 with the accufeed foot and they looked fine.

Can I use the Accufeed foot on stitches that don't light up when I
select the AccuFeed funtcion? Example - I am working a tutorial
published in the Online Sewing First Edition. I am creating a grid
quilted background using stitch Q62 - and this stitch does not 'light
up' when I select AccuFeed. I am stitching through a quilting sandwich
so I need a walking foot. I tried using the AccuFeed food with Q62
(even though it said to use the F foot) and it seemed to work okay.
Just wondering if this is a good practice or not -- if not - what are my
'walking foot' options if the stitch doesn't light up when I select
AccuFeed??

Re: Dissappointed Embroidering Kids' Shirts

Could you hoop sticky stabilizer and just 'stick' your shirt to it and achieve your project? My dealer has good luck with that approach.

This morning after my two young children went to school, I went straight to my 12000 to embroider some Christmas shirts for them. The designs I had chosen were both about 9" wide, and I was excited to not have to resize them to use them! I tacked some stabilizer to the backside of one shirt, and tried to hoop it sideways so I could use the free arm while embroidering. This is one of my favorite features of the Janome machines! Imagine my dismay when I absolutely could NOT get the shirt on the hoop! :(

The 9" hoop is so large that there was no way to get the shirt on it such that I could embroider it. I even tried hooping and turning inside out so the rest of the shirt lays on top, but it was stretched so tight I couldn't get enough of it out of the way to embroider. The only way would be to split the side seam and embroider it flat, which defeats the purpose of the free arm feature.

I ended up resizing the designs, and stitching them out on my 11K. I'm so glad I didn't trade it in now. I wrote Janome and begged them to make a 5x7 or 6x8 hoop for the 12K. I'm posting this to ask you to write them too. I can't be the only person who'd like to embroider smaller round objects with the free arm. I realize now I also won't be able to embroider those pre-fab canvas bags that I like to give away as gift wrapping, either.

So think about dropping Janome a line and asking for some hoop sizes between the 5x5 and the 9x9 size. My kids thank you!

AD foot

dawsewmad
 

Hi Jim, I found out that the problem was that I was using the foot with the edge running down the ditch and I had moved the needle over to 9.[I was using it like my walking foot] and as soon as I place the foot with my seam running over the ditch [seam] and moved my needle to 2.5 it worked great. Many thanks also for the info about winding a bobbin for thick threads, I guess that we still by pass the slots in the bobbin. I do have a 3rd bobbin case so can use this to adjust it needed.
Many thanks
Dawn.

Re: 2 questions

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

We haven't had to remove the foot control for embroidery since the 8000, which came out 20 years ago. That's probably why it's not in the manual.

You shouldn't need to use the 11000 walking foot. The AD foot is much better. Diane just tested it going over heavy seams on denim without any skipped stitches. Have you tried a new needle? A dull or bent needle can easily create skips.

Re: machine speed

Yes, that was something else that Jim saved the day for me about. My instructor couldn't figure it out either, and I was going to have to bring my machine in for their repairman to look at it, until Jim answered my question here.

Re: 2 questions

I'm pretty sure you don't have to remove foot pedal in embroidery mode, because mine is always plugged in and I don't remember unplugging it.

I'm not exactly sure what you are talking about as far as jumping stitches but I do know that when you are sewing applique stitches that there is a setting where you can tell the machine whether to sew the next stitch either out or in after you turn a corner. The icon looks like a corner. Haven't tried it yet when sewing myself, but I was shown it when I took my class to learn about the machine. You can also set how far you want the presser foot to raise up when it goes up automatically before a pivot, which I think is really cool. I felt that the default setting was a little high for just regular cotton, so I lowered mine a little.

Re: bobbin work

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

There is nothing on the 12000 that will let you wind a bobbin without tension, and that's really what you need to do. You can just put your finger down on the left side of the machine, loop the thread around it and wind the bobbin SLOWLY. That should work well enough, given that it doesn't take a lot of heavy thread to fill a bobbin.

Joan, I just found today that you can go into the set menu of machine & change brand of thread. The book also said you can rename colors but I haven't played with that yet.

To change the subject - regarding query about retaining original colour
of design. I have Pfaff 5D Full Suite and I ensured that the colours
were all Robinson Anton then took them over to the MC12000 but it still
changed them to Janome Acrylic as well as reducing the number of
colours. Will keep experimenting.
