Re: different hoop size on 12000

Lyn Quine
 

There’s a free download to update the 12000 on the Janome global website, you can download it to a USB and follow the instructions that are on the website.  It’s very easy to do.


different hoop size on 12000

Joyce Daniel
 

I have 5 x 7 hoop for my 12000 but it does not show up as a choice on my machine.

How do I make that happen?

Virgina,

You also need a project for that Acusetter as well as the time. However, projects are not hard to find. The Acusetter is really awesome and easy to use, but it all takes TIME, as I’m still learning.

Cheryl I got them all free when I purchased the 15,000 upgraded to the Ver 3 Quiltmaker.  I did pay for a small upgrade to I think it was the Accusetter a few months back for 2.99 but that was my choice.  I also got the upgraded Horizon Link for the quiltmaker free as well as all the accessories.  I did have to contact Janome for codes but my only requirement was that I register the machine on their website which I had already done.  I gave up my 12,000 a year ago December to my dealer for the Quiltmaker and love the machine.  I have not done much with the apps but have watched videos and am so ready to use the Accusetter.  I just have not had time.

Virginia,

The only APP that was “given” was for AcuDesign as that one wan’t free to anyone but those that got a 15000 Version 2 embroidery machine.  It may have come with others but I know it wasn’t “free” to me as I got my 15000 - 1st one sold in Saskatoon (I really was a keener that year) and I purchased my APP somewhere down the road before Version 2 of the machine was out.  I’m not sure if it is still given when one buys a new machine as I don’t know anyone that has made a recent purchase.  All the other Janome APPS are free from the iTunes Store.  YouTube has a “Janome Channel” so there is lots available there too, but Jim and Diane’s are still the best for learning our wonderful Janome machines.

I watched the Pocono Sew and Vac YouTube video and found it very good - however the girl talked so fast that I had to watch it several times to follow along and do what she was explaining.  I also thought that she might have used a design that was a little wonky so that it would really show a re-alignment.  The lines were good though.  However, maybe what I’m dreaming would have been too much at one time.  My brain seems to work overtime and that isn’t always a good thing.

I have a question:  Is there anyone else out there that uses ALL the devices you have to complete the task and then find out that ONE would have been all that was really necessary?  At almost 74 years old, I find that I seem to do that quite often and always have, so it’s not an age thing for me.  Maybe I’m just OCD and I’m not going to get medicated or analyzed to find out- I’ll just muddle along as usual.

The old saying "To a kid with a hammer, the world is a nail" has a corollary. A guy with a garage full of tools tends to use only a few favorites. I have an enormous collection of software tools, but use the same small set for about 95% of my tasks. I think the creative mind is always open to anything that will make the process of creating smoother and more efficient. However there is a trade-off between learning to use the tool and actually doing the creating. Sometimes it's not obvious until the end of the project which would have been the better option.

Not sure but I believe the free apps were for the 15,000.  There was a code provided to 15,000 owners when they registered their machines.  You could contact Janome at custrel@....

I suggest watching YouTube video: PSV: Embroidery Tip 1: Janome Acusetter App Tutorial. It's easy to spot as its first screen shows striped fabric hooped at a wonky angle. It basically goes through how Acusetter is used to get a well aligned design. It's very basic but does demo how it works. I hope you find it helpful.
It's from Pocono Sew & Vac, I hope it helps to clear the mystery.

Unbelievable but I might have all of those things. Pays to be A saver.  I’ll work with it and see what happens.  Thank you for the quick answer.  Your videos are great.  I meet you years ago when I was working for Janome dealer in Geneseo, ny and went to Janome institute.  Nice to know you are still in the thick of it.

It came out around the time of the 11000, and allowed 10000 cards to be read into the computer when inserted in the box. So you have two problems:
1. You need a Customizer 2000 box and software.
2. You need 32 bit Windows 7 or XP, since Janome never made a 64 bit USB driver for their machines or Customizer box. That will likely be the deal breaker.

It's been long enough now that Janome should really make those designs available again, maybe by putting 8000, 9000, and 10000 cards on a single CD for purchase at a reasonable price. Maybe they are listening.


Re: AcuSetter

Jim I had the 5700 and the 11,000 and at one time had customizer.  I have those designs saved on a CD somewhere.  Can you imagine.  I still have my original XP which I purchased when I purchased my 5700.  they are saved on there as well.  We went from a card reader to customizer and now to computer and USB.in a matter of about 26 years.  My how time files.
