The convertible free motion foot set that comes with the 8900 (which has metal feet does fit onto the 12000 very nicely) I don't know the part number but will find out. It's definitely not the foot set for just a high shank, like Jim says, the apparatus from the 12000 gets in the way (the 8900 has that same apparatus so they must have redesigned it)

Need some info on the Janome mc12000

just_sewing <iluv2cre8@...>
 

I am considering buying the 12000, I have 3 question

1. what is the length of the machine with the arm out, my sewing table is 65" wide. will the machine fit?

2. I know that previous model had a problem with the bobbin case, does the 12000 have that problem.

3. Are there any problems with metalics and monfilement?

I have been to our local dealer but the answer I am getting is not very helpful. If you want you can email me privately.

Thanks in advance Gerri

Good idea if you have more than one design to do.  I will remember this.  Thanks for the suggestion.

Has anyone thought about if you rotate your 5x7 design in the GR hoop you can 2 in the hoop which saves stabilizer.  I have done that for in the hoop projects using sticky stabilizer.

I have to say that I too do not think I am interested in a new machine at this time.  I truly love this machine and do not see how it can be improved (unless it would be with a 5 X 7 frame and possibly upping the stitch count).

Truthfully I am so happy with this machine that anything newer doesn't interest me.

Thanks for your quick reply. Once I pick out the stitches I have put in I will choose another and hopefully get this quilt finished before the baby is born!

Your problem is stitch 109. This is a reverse-cycle stitch, meaning it goes forward and backward in creating the stitch. Stitches of this type do not work well with layers, especially flannel which is grabby by nature. Pick a stitch that goes forward only and use one of the Dual Feed feet.

Re: Walking foot and decorative stitches

Virginia
 

Try making the stitch a little longer and use your dual feed foot.  I have used this stitch on both my 7700 and my 11,000 and my 12,000 and never had a problem.  Jim is right it is a stitch that goes back and forth does at times create problems.

Re: Hemming Chiffon

Virginia
 

Go to the Janome website there is a video on doing a rolled hem.  You start with a long thread and fold over and do a few straight stitches and then roll the hem and sew slowly.  You can also try a washaway stabilizer underneath to give the chiffon some stability.  I like using my serger for rolled hems rather than my 12,000 it gives me more freedom and much easier to do.

Re: Is It Possible? Another new machine?

Sheila <rainbird@...>
 

Me too!  I have the 11000 which I love but would like to be able to use a longer embroidery designs without having to split them.  An embroidery only machine (single needle) with a longer embroidery field would be my ideal.  

I read and enjoy all the messages relating to the 12000 and have given the machine a test run but with a limited income in retirement I don't really see one in my immediate future so an amb only with a good embroidery field would be great.

1/4 seam

rosematt11@ymail.com
 

I have my answer. You must select one of the piecing stitches and the needle will adjust to the right position.


1/4 in seam for quilting

rosematt11@ymail.com
 

I was just going to do some piecing and put the O foot on (1/4 in seam) and was surprised it measures a full 3/8 inch. Has anyone else found this to be true? I assume at this point that I need to put the wide hole plate on and adjust the needle position. It doesn't seem right since I always thought piecing with a single hole plate was the preferred way for most quilters, to prevent fabric from being sucked down into the bobbin area. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Is It Possible? Another new machine?

Maybe it will not be a new sewing/embroidery it may be just a new Embroidery Only machine.  The MB4 has been out for years and they have not had an embroidery only machine since the 350E.  Remember when the Special edition 11,000 came out it was not 5 years old yet and it was an upgrade. Let's not panic yet.
