A question

gracelubold <glubold@...>
 

Hello, I am a new 12000 owner without the MBX software. However, I do have the latest update to Digitizer. I have been trying to trick my way into the machine using a thumb drive and a design created for the larger MB-4 hoop. The machine does not recognize it. Eventhough I have been able to transfer smaller designs via thumbdrive. Is it because it was created for a MB-4 hoop? I also have tried to open it in Horizon Link. It shows up on the screen for documents, where I stored the design. However, Horizon link will not open the design, flashing a message that the design is too large for the hoop. I have tried to open a larger hoop, but have havn't been able to. Help. Is there any way to get a large design into the machine using the old Digitizer?
I would love some suggestions, if any. If there is no hope, a little sympathy would be nice, since I was so hoping to make a table centerpiece for christmas, using this design. Thank you! Grace

Annie, I am so jealous of you. I lived in Dhahran for 13+ years and enjoyed the "cost savings" of the Janome dealership in Dubai. For sure you got a great deal financially. I bought my 12000 about two months ago here in Colorado and just love it. I'm sure you'll love yours too. You will be the envy of all!

Good morning all!
Has anyone heard back from kkrissyb who posted pictures of a really nice looking wooden thread spool holder? I've written, but I may have missed her reply. I want to get one of those...it is the nicest spool holder I've seen.
Thank you so much.
Merry Christmas.

I was very suprised not to have audio on the help movie. Thought something was wrong. I still have not been able to connect my laptop to my 12000. Jonome is (I hope) still working on what the problem is with my operating system (Windows XP Professional SP3) Very frustrating to have a great machine and not able to use all of it. Oh well I still have hope Jonome will figure it out.

I have installes Horizon linc...should there be audio on the help movies?

Hi Jim and the other ladies who responded to my message.

Thank you for the great information and Jim - I have downloaded the files you mentioned so I can take a good look at what comes with the machine. As I have absolutely every foot and accessory for the Horizon 7700 I feel a little reluctant to sell them all when I sell my 7700 so the Foot Holder seems to be the best bet for me - do you by any chance know the part number for this holder? for either the 7700 or the 11000 as either seems to be okay, I can then ask the dealer in Dubai to order for me. Also, will the Circular Sewing Attachment (for the 7700) work on the 12000?

That's all for now, until the next time LOL!!

Warm Wishes,
Annie in Saudi Arabia

No, you're correct, I wasn't specific enough! The differential feed option is only activated for those stitches marked in red. The dial has no effect on any other stitches.

Forgive me for including all the quotes from this thread but I am very confused now.  What is the difference between AccuFeed, Differential feed, dual feed.   And what circumstances require their individual uses?   I've never used any of these so my ignorance is showing.

Yesterday I went to my dealer and collected my 12000!
He gave me another brief run through. But will go back in January after the Christmas holiday to have lessons on the embroidery.
The box is sitting in my sewing room. It is SO HUGE!
Sadly will only have time to do as Peter asked and check all is there before I head up to Darwin for Christmas and Cairns. I leave on Monday see no time to play! I traded my 5 month ols 7700.
I also got the 3160 included in the deal. Tiny baby! So cute. May manage a seam or two on it before Monday.
I am really looking forward to this new learning curve with the embroidery. And love the upgrades from the 7700 like the clip on accufeed, pull out light, magnifier.
Thanks Jim for starting a group to help us new owners.

Congrats Heather! Have a wonderful time in Darwin. Maybe you should take the 3160 just in case you have some free time. We like that one too.

Just wanted to let you know that I tested the quilt binder set on my new 12,000 last week and it performed perfectly. I did use the ankle from a 11,000 to connect the foot to the machine.

Hi Jim,

Hello from Annie in sunny Saudi Arabia. I have orderd the Horizon 12000 from the dealer in Dubai and hopefully it will be brought here to Saudi Arabia mid-January 2012 for me by a good friend who is visiting Dubai and will save me some expensive shipping! The dealer in Dubai has asked me to let him know about accessories or any items for the 12000 and he will order from Japan. Jim, can you tell me of any accessories that I would or should need? When I bought the 7700 I also bought all the extra feet, large binder, thread stand, I assume none of these will be of use with the 12000? Also, is there anywhere on line I can see exactly what feet do come with the 12000, I know it says 20 feet but what are they?

Thanks Jim and to everyone in this group, I honestly don't feel I would buy the 12000 if you weren't here as I have no-one at all to get advise or tuition from and have never used an embroidery machine but am willing to have a go!

Thanks again if you can offer any further information it would be of great help to me.

Just wanted to add that I ordered the 11000 foot holder from Brubakers Sewing. I think it was around $13. It took just a few days to get here.

Annie I have uploaded two files to the Files section of the list, one showing the feet that come with the 12000 and the other for the accessories, most of which are not yet available. One accessory not mentioned is a large rolling case for the 12000 and hoops. I've been told it will be available in February for $299.

We've found that all of Diane's 7700 extra feet work fine on the 12000 as long as you get a 7700 or 11000 foot holder. The 9mm foot holder on the 12000 is too wide, but the 7700 and 11000 foot holders attach to the 12000 and line up the snap-on feet perfectly. The binder works, but you need the foot holder for the foot included with it.

Looks like your new year will be starting out really well!

Your Horizon Link software works equally well in 32 or 64-bit operating systems. Should you later want to switch to a Mac (We are an all-Mac household here!) we have a document that explains the process:
http://onlinesewing.squarespace.com/issues/2011/8/14/switching-to-mac-a-guide.html

There is no audio on the help videos, just as there is no audio on the machine.

Re: Some questions for Jim

Anne, Congratulations on your expected baby. Aside from the feet & extra hardware that haven't come out yet to my knowledge, you will need lots of stabilizers, threads, (including a large cone of bobbin thread) & needles (can buy in bulk) & extra bobbins for your embroidery. Everyone has favorite brands & some use rayon thread while others use polyester. Personally, I have started using Floriani products but have found our machine only likes Floriani thread (polyester) from a separate thread stand. In fact I have started putting all my thread on the stand to avoid changing the thread cap. And in the end, start checking embroidery sites for designs.
