Re: Cloth setter

Hi Janice,

I believe it is worth the money because it takes the guess work out of larger hooped projects.  I had one with my 10001 and loved it, too.

Take care,

Georgia

Hi
Is the cloth setter for the Janome 12000 worth buying? If you have used one, please tell me what you think of it.
Thanks

Thanks for all the feedback for the Floriani software.  I appreciate hearing from people who have it and have used it.  I liked that you could change the outline stitch on a design.

Re: Bobbin Sensor

There are two places to turn off the bobbin sensor. If you turned it off in the Ordinary Sewing SET screen, it will still give you a warning in Embroidery. You need to turn it off on page 1 of the Embroidery SET screen.

I have been using Floriani Total Control Pro for nearly a year. I love it. They now have software for quilting called My Decorative Quilter.It is pretty amazing and you can save to jef with it also. Walter Floriani is known for his digitizing standards.

I had the MBX and was going to have to update at the high price. I looked at Floriani and liked what I saw. I am still in the learning stage but like it more than MBX. Yes, you can save in JEF and you can add hoop size. They have updates (do not charge) and add new features all the time. Very easy to get update. When you sign in to program it will look for updates and ask if you want to update at that time. I am not a Floriani fan go to a dealer and check it out then make your choice.

Re: How to Change MM to Inches in HorizonLink

I agree. Their engineers excel at writing code for running inside the machines, but for user-friendly Windows programs, not so much. It's especially telling that they got it in the machine but failed to do it in HorizonLink, which is supposed to mirror the machine.

Re: Bobbin Genie Magic 8 ball

Patricia Ward
 

Thanks, Maggie and Jim.

I was wondering if this was so true then why hadn't the machine companies esp those that have quilting machines come out with something as an extra to sell.  
Gee, if we bought everything out there on the market, we wouldn't have money left for fabric... then how do you quilt?   lol

I know that static can be deadly around electronics and thus I do not have carpet on my sewing room floor besides if a pin falls I want to be able to find it so it doesn't go into my foot or a Labrador paw.  I sit on a cotton covered booster pillow at my machine and generally wear cotton.   Synthetics are literally a static pain and very uncomfortable. lol

The only static I worry about is the static we create when wearing synthetics, have synthetic carpeting, then sit on older synthetic chair covers. I've given myself several evil little shocks through that in the past. I love the way marketing departments use quasi scientific mumbo jumbo to hoodwink us into buying their latest 'must have' items. I tend to use what my grandmother called 'a pinch of salt' when reading the claims of marketing hype. My children claim it's cynicism on my part, I claim it's just common sense. If you don't get a static discharge shock when you touch your machine, then don't fret over it.

Re: Bobbin Genie

Hello,
It's true what Sharon says about the Bobbin Genies with metal on metal. They will help the thread not to backlash when making quick directional changes when doing free motion.

--- In janome12000@yahoogroups.com, Patricia Ward <ward.pm@...> wrote:

Good Morning, Jim, and all....

I just watched a Sharon Schambler video on home machine quilting. I noticed
she is using a Juki machine. In this video she suggests the bobbin genie
for inserting into the bobbin holder so that no static electricity builds
up from the bobbin turning. The disk is teflon and she says that this
keeps the static from building up from the metal turning on metal. Static
supposedly gives you skipped stitches or stitches that are irregular. (
gee, and I thought that was the quilter not the machine).

My question is-- do you think there is value in what she is saying? The
12000 has a plastic bobbin in a plastic case. This Juki looked to be a
metal bobbin in metal bobbin holder case in an oscillating hook.
I do have an Artista that has that same set up... metal on metal and
oscillating hook.

Is there merit in what she is suggesting?
