For those who just want to put designs on a USB drive, Stitch Buddy (www.stitchbuddy.de) is definitely the way to go. It understands Janome drive formats and makes it super easy to put designs on a USB drive for all Janome models that can use a USB drive.

If you want to use Janome software, then you have to use Windows. The two best choices for that are Parallels and VMware Fusion. There are a few other options, but they are best used by high level "geeks" that are capable of twiddling the software. Parallels is usually rated the highest by industry experts, but I don't recommend it. They are constantly tweaking it, trying to achieve the best possible performance. Frequently this leads to problems with installed software, and then you have to wait for the fix to come out. VMware Fusion is not as flashy, but it's far more stable. They work on a much slower update cycle, so it's very rare for things to get broken after an upgrade.

There are some considerations that have to be made with regard to Windows. First, you have to have a "boxed" copy of Windows. You cannot create a virtual machine using a DVD or CD that came with a Windows computer. Those are licensed for use with the purchased computer only, and neither Parallels nor Fusion will allow you to use Windows from a computer you already have. The cheapest way to get a copy of Windows that will work is to purchase an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) from an online supplier like NewEgg. Windows from Dell, HP, Toshiba, etc. is also OEM, but Microsoft also sells versions for people who want to build their own computer. The restriction is that the seller can only sell that copy of Windows with computer hardware, so when you buy it from NewEgg (or others), you will find a small screw in the box with Windows. That's the "hardware" to keep Microsoft from jumping on them.

Since Windows XP Microsoft has implemented an "activation" scheme to keep their software from being pirated. This has caused major problems for legal users, while barely touching the piracy problem. After you create your Windows virtual machine (VM) Windows must be activated. This is done online, and the process sends a "fingerprint" to Microsoft of all the hardware in your computer, along with the serial number from the installation disk. That's all well and fine until the virtual machine software gets updated. This happens with both Parallels and Fusion - updates are a normal process. Unfortunately these updates sometimes change the virtual hardware, usually to make things faster. Windows sees this as a "major hardware change" and demands activation again. You can do this twice, and then you either need to spend hours on the phone arguing with someone in India, who has no idea what a virtual machine is, or buy another Windows license. Microsoft says it's an Apple problem, Apple says it's a Microsoft problem, and the VM software providers say it's a Microsoft problem. I agree that it's a Microsoft problem, because it only hurts legal owners of their software. Microsoft has no incentive to change, because VM technology is making it easier than ever for their customers to flee to Apple hardware.

The solution is to make a backup of the virtual Windows machine after creating it. Keep the copy in a safe place. When the VM software is updated, make a backup again, then install the update and see what happens. If it triggers activation, roll back to the prior version and restore the VM from the backup. If Windows gets infected or crashes or any of the other delightful little things it can do, you will always have the offline backup to recover with. You can also take "snapshots" with both Parallels and Fusion. This allows you to freeze dry the virtual computer state. If things get bad you can always restore from the snapshot and undo all the bad stuff, including virus and malware infections.

Re: Janome's newest machine

actually, Embird has an auto split feature that allows you to choose the maximum number of stitches for each section.  It's in the editor screen.  Click on "Edit" tab, then "auto-split" then choose the option to split by maximum # of stitches & fill in the # of stitches & click OK.  I've used this.  Works fine.  There are also options for auto-splitting by field size or # of colors.

Re: Janome's newest machine

True.  It was a divorce situation. Brand new in box. 

 

Husband bought it for wife who didn’t use it—just let it sit there.  I live in Poland and these things do happen. Apparently the man bought it in Sweden where he was working for his Polish wife. She met another man in Poland while was up there working and issued a court order for him not to be allowed to be around her. (Obviously I don’t know the whole story.)  In the meantime, she hadn’t touched her machine—maybe she did take it out of the box, but the plastic was still on the LCD screen on the computer and the parts were still in bags, unopened. The box was a bit battered, but the machine new. Brand new.

 

Apparently the wife wanted a new life with her new man and that didn’t include the machine….so it was sold.  I bought it.  If I need to buy Horizon Link, then maybe I can find it for sale somewhere.  I’ve been unclear what it is for, so I didn’t worry about.

 

I only got the machine in January, so am still very much in the learning process.  I’ve been using it mostly for embroidery and it has been so much fun and I’ve been loving the larger hoops!

The Janome 12,000 included a software program that was called Horizon Link.  It is a similar program to Customizer but more advanced.  Not knowing where or whom you purchased your machine from that was included in the price of the machine.  It is surprising to me to hear that you purchased your machine used where the 12,000 just came out in October 2011.

Hi Jim!

While everyone is waiting for a 200,000 stitch capability update, is it not possible to just split a large design by stitch number, ie by the maximum number of stitches that the 12000 will accept using the Janome software? Load the two parts of the design as two separate files, sew out the first part, then load the second part and sew that. no rehooping or anything, just change from one design part to the other. You could sew a design with any number of stitches this way no matter what the machine's stitch limitation is.

Re: Mac's and New owners

Apparently Parallels interprets the Microsoft license very liberally, which might be a reason to go with them. However there was a recent post from someone who updated Parallels, which caused Windows to "phone home" again. You only get 2 activations, and she was locked out. You have had two as well - one when you turned on the Windows computer for the first time, and again when you migrated it to Parallels. Be VERY careful about future Parallels upgrades, as one of them could trigger activation and you could wind up locked out.

Re: Mac's and New owners

BootCamp is not a Windows program, but an Apple program that creates drivers for Windows on the Mac hardware. You're right, it does provide an acceptable solution, but there is a cost. You have to reboot to get from Windows to Mac and vice versa. You also have to decide in advance how much space to allocate to Windows. Once you've made the choice, you can't go back. I much prefer using virtual machines, so I don't tie up excess space. Virtual machine disk space only uses as much real space as needed, and it grows as you add more to the virtual drive. You can also drag files between the Mac and Windows. Of course using BootCamp you don't have to buy a virtual machine handler, and your Windows activation won't be a problem.

You can probably use Embird to accomplish what you want. In this case splitting the design does not require any kind of alignment. You just create two designs from one:

1. Open the design.

2. Step through the layers/colors until you have gotten close to 100,000 stitches.

3. Delete all layers/colors after that point.

4. Use "Save As" to save the design, naming it "MyDesign1" or whatever name you choose followed by 1.

5. Open the design again. Delete all layers/colors up to the point you got to in step 2.

6. Again use "Save As" to save it as "MyDesign2".

7. Put both parts in your machine. Stitch part 1. Leave the hoop alone and stitch part 2.

Hi Jim!

While everyone is waiting for a 200,000 stitch capability update, is it not
possible to just split a large design by stitch number, ie by the maximum
number of stitches that the 12000 will accept using the Janome software?
Load the two parts of the design as two separate files, sew out the first
part, then load the second part and sew that. no rehooping or anything, just
change from one design part to the other. You could sew a design with any
number of stitches this way no matter what the machine's stitch limitation
is.

Hello.
I have bootcamp on my Mac and it works great. Bootcamp is a windows program so youngest the best of both worlds. Apple and windows on the same Mac.

Mac's and New owners

Hi Jim
 
We have new owners with Mac’s.  What software (windows, etc.) do you recommend they add so they can run Janome programs on their Mac’s? 
 
Thanks for your help on this.  I’m getting ready to switch over to a Mac myself, but not just yet.

You can probably use Embird to accomplish what you want. In this case splitting the design does not require any kind of alignment. You just create two designs from one:

1. Open the design.

2. Step through the layers/colors until you have gotten close to 100,000 stitches.

3. Delete all layers/colors after that point.

4. Use "Save As" to save the design, naming it "MyDesign1" or whatever name you choose followed by 1.

5. Open the design again. Delete all layers/colors up to the point you got to in step 2.

6. Again use "Save As" to save it as "MyDesign2".

7. Put both parts in your machine. Stitch part 1. Leave the hoop alone and stitch part 2.

Re: quilting foot

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

We've not had that problem, but others on the list have. This is probably something that the Janome service techs in New Jersey know about, so I would address the problem with your dealer. They should be able to tell him/her how to correct it.

Hi Jim
When I attach my quilting foot on my 12000 the little hook that fits in at the back sometimes slips out while sewing and of cours it doesn't sew as well when this happens I then have to push it back in. is this normal,what am I doing wrong?
Received my dvd today,that was very quick. Thanks. Looking forward to watching it.


Re: Janome's newest machine

You're going to want some software. If you cannot get Horizon Link from the seller, you may want to purchase either Digitizer MBX or Digitizer Junior V4. The Junior version can be upgraded to the full version, though you'll spend a bit more that way. Digitizer Junior will allow you to do everything Horizon Link does, except for the Stitch Composer. You may also be able to have a dealer order Horizon Link for you. The CD-ROM is available as a service part, #859845001.

Re: the 9900 features

I was only stating exactly what had been told me by our Janome dealers who were at VDTA and actually saw and experienced the new machine. They did say ALL new built in designs, which they were quite excited about because Janome has used and re-used many of the built-in designs for years. I'm sorry if that was incorrect and offended...
Also, it's great that they have come up with new ones, and even if they kept some of the oldies, we can hope they are some of the most useful and favorites. The discussion about folks missing that cute little alligator decorative stitch is a reminder that sometimes we still want some of the old things and features on our new machines that we've gotten used to and love. I know that one of the reasons I'm enjoying the Stitch Composer so much is that it's enabling me to re-create some of my favorite stitches from some of my other machines. In fact one day when I was laboring over perfecting an old favorite decorative stitch using the Stitch Composer, my husband asked me "WHY?" and the only reason I could truly come up with, was because I love the way my 12K sews and would rather sew on it!!!
