Places to buy Stabilizer

Sherry Martin
 

I bought wide stabilizer at Ken's Sewing Center. It is an internet business I use a lot for both Janome accessories and a lot of other stuff like thread and stablizers. They have they're own brand which I have found just fine, and they sell other brands too.

I also have bought both stabilizer and thread from a site called Sew For Less.

Usually Ken's delivery is very quick while Sew for Less sometimes is slightly slower although both have been really good.

Even the 5x5 hoop seems to take pretty wide stabilizer because of the design of it, which kind of irks me.


Feet prices...

Chris Krause <nckrause@...>
 

Hope everyone's having a good Christmas break. My Vancouver dealer just got
in 9 of the new feet, and they range in price from $5 to $15. I imagine
prices would vary somewhat between countries, and dealers.

Janome does not typically list accessory prices, including feet, in their
brochures. I've heard that one or two of the feet have been released, but I
have no direct knowledge about which ones or how much they are.

The screws on the back of the machine are indeed for the thread stand, just
as they are on the 11000.

Do you know if Janome have released the cost of the extra feet yet. I have
the brochure but no prices. There are one or two I want to get. I am going
to use some of the big designs on cushions will need the piping foot. I
bought one for my 11000, found it very useful.

On the back of the machine there are 2 deep set screws which seem to line
up with the thread guide for the 11000, is this where the thread guide
fits???

The Pfaff dual feed system works as you described, but I cannot imagine how a Pfaff video would wind up in a Janome machine box. Does you video have any markings on it? The official Janome video is clearly marked as being for the 12000. Given that your machine was open box, I wonder if the wrong video may have been put in.

I completely forgot about changing the plate and bobbin when I worked the snow flake, did not really make that much difference.

One thing I did notice from the videos I had wtched before I got my machine, it appeared that you did not put a new needle plate on but pushed forward the small hole attached somehow to the zigzag plate. Also the even feed foot or what ever they called it seemed to be parmanantly attached to the machine and was pulled down to use and pushed back when you had finished using it. I was surprised to find the feet in the tool box and that you had to attach them to the machine.

Any comment Jim??????


Re: A word of caution

janetpiekarski
 

That bobbin case for embroidery is not necessary if you're using Janome bobbin thread the tension on the case is too much. I think in the book it tell you that you only use it when using the thinner (like the MB-4 bobbin thread) bobbin threads. Other brands may be thinner too. I used it with the Janome bobbin thread and it WAS too much tension. (Hah, it does make the bobbin thread last forever)

--- In janome12000@..., "Sherry Martin" <shejmartin@...> wrote:

Yes, I also forget the bobbin holder. It seems like with all the bells and whistles this machine has, maybe they could come up with an automatic bobbin holder and needle plate changer (ha ha). I would prefer a really good looking guy who just stands in the corner until I get done embroidering and then comes over and changes them for me while I admire him. Is that too much to hope for?

Actually, you don't HAVE to change that throat plate back after
embroidering. You can do straight stitching AND free motioning
stitching. It's a great feature if you're stitching on sheer or flimsy
fabric-less chance of getting sucked down into the bobbin area. The
fact that many stitches (actually, any that have width) are grayed out,
should be enough of an indication that the straight stitch throat plate
is in.

Re: Merging embroidery files

Vikki Youngmeyer
 

Okay, I finally figured it out – it appears that you have to select the files to be merged from the Design file structure in the Place option.  You can open the initial file from the file folder on the “ribbon”. Sorry to be so dense! Thanks for your help.

 

I’ll check into Allbrands about the stabilizer.

I'm guessing that you are using Horizon Link, since you got it with your machine. When opening the program, choose the third option, "Editing embroidery designs". From the next screen click the Embroidery Edit button, which is highlighted, and choose the hoop you want to use. Then click the Design button in the "Place" section at the right end of the toolbar. This will allow you to choose a design from your Documents folder. Once you've done that, it will be placed in the hoop. You can also drag designs from open folders or your desktop and drop them in the hoop on the screen.

For stabilizers there are numerous online sources. One that a lot of people use and seem to like is AllStitch: http://www.allstitch.net
We have not used any online source as yet, having brought home a fair bit of stabilizer when we closed the store, but when we need something we'll probably try AllStitch.

I traded in my previous Koala QuiltMate and upgraded to the Koala QuiltMate IV and I love it. Even though I can now stow my machine and the lift now is all electric so you can stop at any level, If you put any thread stands on the back of your machine you cannot stow it away anyway.

Considering that this is the first combination sewing/embroidery

changing it is critical. Like you, we've done embroidery using the
standard plate (and standard bobbin case) and it's been fine. It's
nice to have the option of a single hole plate, especially when
piecing quilts that have points on the ends of the pieces, but I don't

I ordered a much bigger table than comes with the machine. I find the little table that came with the machine too small and too flimsy to be able to free motion quilt very well or even just straight line quilt a large quilt.

Re: Changing needle plate and bobbin case.

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

You're right, of course. If you HAD to change the plate, it should include the bobbin case change in the steps. However they only tell you to change the bobbin case if you are not using Janome bobbin thread. We have found that you can also use the normal bobbin case with pre-wound bobbins that have Robison-Anton bobbin thread.

We've got ours in an older Koala, much like the Horn Quilter's Dream. It's too big to use the lift, but the machine is never idle long enough to store anyway. Given the large size of the new machines, the cabinet manufacturers are going to have to make new cabinets to fit. If you don't need a lift, then any piece of furniture that has a good sewing height will work. Otherwise I would wait a while to see what gets released by the various companies.

Note that while our 12000 is big, it's tiny compared to the Brother Quattro. When set up for embroidery, you need a space just slightly smaller than the deck of an aircraft carrier. We had one for a short time, and the dining room table was the only place big enough to set it up!
