Response has been amazing! The first production run has been sold out. Not to worry - we'll have more in 7-10 days. Thanks to everyone who has ordered, and rest assured we will do our best to get orders out as quickly as possible.

DVD and Footbook

stresover <quilting@...>
 

Oh, goody. Just ordered the DVD. I had understood you would have it ready by the end of January so I have been (im)patiently waiting.

I like what you did to FootBook with the application part. I use FootBook regularly. Much easier than trying to find what I'm looking for in the book that came with the machine.

Will be watching the mailbox! Our local dealer has had no classes specially for the 12K so am eager to learn.

If you had problems with the sample, you will have problems with the DVD. By chance did you get an orange square with an error message inside the video area? Depending on the browser, some need to have Adobe Flash Player installed. I've tested the videos with several versions of Windows, and browsers back to Internet Explorer 7. What version of Windows are you using, and what browser?

Thanks again,

After almost a year in development, we are happy to announce our video guide for the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 12000, Volume 1. This volume covers the sewing functions of the machine, including all of the SET screens as well as all of the Application (T-shirt) screens. We've also included 3 bonus videos. The guide is provided on an interactive DVD, which can be used on any computer that has a DVD drive and a web browser, Windows, Mac or Linux. The information in the videos is either covered in much greater depth than the owner's manual, or is not included in the manual at all.

We've prepared a sample video to give you some idea of what they are like. Because of bandwidth restrictions, we have greatly compressed it. This results in much lower quality, but all of the content is there. Here's the link for the sample:

When to change needles

Vikki Youngmeyer
 

I have a question which I have broached to numerous people and gotten a variety of answers. So when should one change the needle in the 12000, or in any machine? What are the “warning signs” that a needle replacement is imminent? Ihe needle breaks after hitting a pin or getting tangled up in  a rats nest, replacement is obvious because it won’t sew any more until you replace it.

 

However, if you and the machine have behaved yourselves and we’re into embroidering the 22nd dog towel and things are still humming just fine, what signs should one look for?

 

Currently I am working on a Judy Niemeyer paper piecing project. I’ve just about gone thru 3 bobbins and am using So Fine piecing thread in both the upper and bobbin units. It still seems to be humming along, and the holes made by the needle don’t appear to be larger than the units created at the beginning. I’m using a Schmetz titanium needle.

 

The needle had about 20 minutes of embroidery on it prior to this project as the previous needle broke (having encountered a rats nest) just before the completion of the 22nd dog towel!

 

Some have told me that I need to change needles every time I change bobbins. Some say it’s after every 3rd bobbin. I lost track as to how many bobbins I did with the embroidery, but did replace the needle when it broke!

 

Considering the cost of the 12000, the cost of needles pales considerably, but I can’t see replacing a needle at 100 hours if I can get 500 hours out of it.  I usually have long term projects and in the 15 months I have had this machine, I’ve put over 1500 hours on it between embroidery and piecing projects.  During this time there has been 4 weeks where nothing was done on this machine because I was out of town – and hubby doesn’t sew!

New machine

MIKE
 

Thank you all for your advice and time in responding to my buying dilemma .

I have been to visit another dealer who although further away I have more confidence with now . Younger I hate to say but has degrees in electronics and engineering and will probably be around for longer . (I may regret saying that ) but business inherited from father and good IT back ground . After asking at my age (less than 60) was I able to cope with top end technology didn't want me to be afraid of top end and spend money not need ended . (nice of him) . When I gave him technical questions realised I had done the homework and couldn't answer and went yes guys and girls to the computer !!!!

I HAVE come home with the Janome MC 12000 MC , Janome prices are rising here in the UK as of this weekend .

I feel I got a good deal unlimited help by phone /internet, can go back and take classes , plus the Janome workshop for the 12000 valid for a year . Whooppee.

Doing as recommened watching videos brfore sewing .

Thankyou all for your help , Watch for the 50 dimbo questions now !


Re: Foot Book

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

Normally when you change phones you just restore your apps from a previous backup. The iPhone activation process walks you through that. However you can always install it from the App Store without paying a second time. Just open the App Store, search for FootBook, and click the "Install" button. If it shows a price, then you are using a different Apple ID than you used when you purchased it.

We've just updated the app to version 2.3, which adds a category for "Feet by application". It lets you pick a sewing task, and then offers a list of feet that can be used.

Thanks for buying our app!

Re: Designs on USB stick

Pixey
 

You may have already done this...but make sure that the 4th file isn't hiding on a second page of designs (even though the first page/display doesn't appear to be full).  It seems to have to do with how a USB sometimes partitions itself or just the way the magic computer saves the files.  On the computer it looks like all the files are nicely sequenced and together but when I plug the USB into the machine, I'll have to page through to get to some of them, even though there are few enough that they "should" be displaying on the 1st screen/page.

I added 9 jef designs to my,new, 2GB USB stick. All of the designs are in the correct folder (Embf) I can see all of them on my computer.
I had merged a baste frame around each design. They are all within the 4x4 size range and baste frame is same on all.

When I put the stick into the machine (12000) it only recognizes 3 of them.

Looking at the designs on my computer this is how they appear:
The three that are recognized have a separate page looking item and the name ends with JBF(uppercap letters), right under that I can see the design itself and the name ends in jef(lowercase letters).
All the other designs have longer names. When I rename the same design (on the computer)shortening it,and resent to the USB, still not recognized by the machine.

What else can I try to fix this.

Thanks in advance for any help. Zoe

Thank for the suggestion, Mona..I use Embird and seeing Jim's comment can't do that.
I really thought I did everything the same on each design but will recheck and also look at in sew simulator and watch stitch out.
Next step will be a trip to dealer.
Thanks, Zoe

No, it won't. JAN files cannot be read by Janome machines, only by Janome Digitizer software.
