Two more sleeps!

sewing2171
 

Hi, It is just two more sleeps and then my new baby is coming home. I am so exciting and happy that Santa was so kind as to buy the 12000 for me. Also, thank you for this group. I am sure I will have questions when I start playing.

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and wish you all a lovely 2012.

Regards,
Nita


Re: Transferring designs from USB to a file in the machine.

(When you have one design opened, you can save it to
the machine's computer or to any other device that's attached to it -
computer, flash drive. )
Thats the bit I cannot do.........for some reason I just do not get it.

I am going to have another go this morning to load a design to stitch out.

I had not problem with the 11000, I must admit just now I have a problem sorting out everything on the screen, its a steep learning curve.

I am 4 years older than I was when I got the 11000, my brian seems to be turning to mush......

You do not have to stitch the designs at all in order to save them on your computer. You can do it all using the Horizon Link software that came with your machine. Here's how to find the instructions:

1. Open Horizon Link and choose "Editing Embroidery Designs" from the opening screen.

2. Click the blue question mark in the top right corner of the program window.

3. The Help menu is now open. Click the "Contents" tab on the left side of the help window.

4. Click the "Managing File" topic from the list. This will show you how to use the tool. You'll want to have your USB drive connected to your computer, or have it plugged into your machine and have your machine connected to your computer by USB cable.

Do I have to actually sew the designs first or is there a way I can create a folder and put the designs in without sewing them out?

I have only just got my machine, having had an 11000 previously. I am really still at the playing stage with the embroidery side of the machine, I am quite happy with the sewing side.

I think you have to do them one at a time. You open each design, but don’t have to stitch it out. When you have one design opened, you can save it to the machine’s computer or to any other device that’s attached to it – computer, flash drive.

I know that you can open each design from the USB stick and then save it on the sewing machine. You shouldn't have to sew it out.

What I'm not sure about is if you can transfer designs all at once as a group. I didn't learn that you could in the lesson I took with my machine. You may have to open each design individually and then save it.

Hi Jim,
 
Thank you for suggesting I stay on with the group, I would like to do this as I find it all so interesting and who knows - could change my mind about the 12000, a woman's prerogative! ha.....
 
Have a great Christmas Day and my warm wishes,

That looks very good! I hadn’t even considered a soft-sided carrier. Do you have any details about the zipper she used?

Any one come up with a plastic container large enough to store the hoops? I haven’t used my hoops all that much, but the cardboard box in which they came is starting to show some wear. I really like the padded storage case for the embroidery unit – too bad the hoops didn’t come in a light-weight plastic box.

Yes, I also forget the bobbin holder. It seems like with all the bells
and whistles this machine has, maybe they could come up with an
automatic bobbin holder and needle plate changer (ha ha). I would
prefer a really good looking guy who just stands in the corner until I
get done embroidering and then comes over and changes them for me while I
admire him. Is that too much to hope for?

12000 hoops and Embird

lysiaau <n.schuster@...>
 

Thanks for all your help. The fault was mine, so simple. I didn't
move the arrow across on the machine to the larger designs, when
I did this the 230by230 was there. All I have to do is learn the machine.

Actually, you don't HAVE to change that throat plate back after
embroidering. You can do straight stitching AND free motioning
stitching. It's a great feature if you're stitching on sheer or flimsy
fabric-less chance of getting sucked down into the bobbin area. The
fact that many stitches (actually, any that have width) are grayed out,
should be enough of an indication that the straight stitch throat plate
is in.

The JEF design format contains a field that indicates the hoop required to stitch the design. Embird, like all non-Janome software providers, will need to reverse-engineer the new JEF format to figure out all the codes. The machine will not accept designs with invalid codes, or codes for hoops that are smaller than the design. At the moment the only software that has all the 12000 hoops is StitchBuddy for the Mac.

You *might* be able to make a GR hoop design by using Embird to save it for the MA hoop on the 11000. Horizon Link will open those designs and will convert the hoop to GR. At that point you can send it to the machine.

I went to hem a pair of pants this morning and discovered that I had
very few options to sew. Of course I went into panic mode and wrote a
nice long question for the forum to try to help me. I phoned a friend
to get a few short words to describe the free motion stitch - the
squiggle kind and SHE SOLVED my problem. In case this happens to any of
you REMEMBER that the needle/throat plate needs to be changed after
your are finished embroidery and want to do regular sewing. Now I can
hem those pants to wear for Christmas.



Again - a very Blessed and Happy Christmas to all.
