But  for me, it's also a reminder for bobbin holder as well as plate.  If there is ANY room for a booboo, I can do it!

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.

I went to hem a pair of pants this morning and discovered that I had
very few options to sew. Of course I went into panic mode and wrote a
nice long question for the forum to try to help me. I phoned a friend
to get a few short words to describe the free motion stitch - the
squiggle kind and SHE SOLVED my problem. In case this happens to any of
you REMEMBER that the needle/throat plate needs to be changed after
your are finished embroidery and want to do regular sewing. Now I can
hem those pants to wear for Christmas.



Again - a very Blessed and Happy Christmas to all.

Re: Embird and 12000

Hi Jim and many thanks for the manual gift. I have the 5D professional software and I can convert and save to jef format with any of the 4 hoops in the Janome 12000 machine. The software is pricey but they try to include all the new machines and there hoops. I am assuming that if the correct machine (Janome 12000) and one of the 4 hoops as a choice, all necessary info would be transferred with the file. So far I have only converted one file and it did work. Busy with sewing for now. Happy holidays.

Hello Jim,
thanks a lot.
I have a Dutch manual, but it is nice to have the English version as PDF as well. It makes it easier to understand some of the conversations on the list as things are sometimes translated different than I would expect. (Example: Quiet mode is translated as Eco mode)

Recently Adobe made an app to read PDF's so there is an alternative to iBooks, allthough I like iBooks.

OK, here's your early Christmas present:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/48356382/12000%20Manual.pdf

To put it on your iPad follow these steps:
1. If you don't have iBooks installed on the iPad, download it now from the App Store. It's free!

2. Open the link above in Safari on your iPad.

3. In the top right corner of the page look for a button labeled "Open in iBooks". If you don't see it tap the screen. Touch the button.

The instruction book will be opened in iBooks. It will be in the PDFs collection, but you can move it using the Edit button on the top right.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

Lysia,
 
I just tested this in Embird & machine recognized the design & displayed the 9.1 x 11.8" hoop when it opened the design.  Just make sure that you have "keep hoop settings, do not adjust hoop size according to settings in design file" checked at the bottom of the Embird Custom Hoop screen.  Uncheck the other 2 size adjust boxes that are right above that.
 
HTH,
 
Marsha

I save designs in the 200 X 200 hoop regardless of the size.  The design will be in the 230 X 230 hoop when you open it at the machine.  I’ve had no problems at all doing it this way.

I have Embird and I can set a 140by140 custom hoop and it shows

Is there any other way to save designe to a stick as I only have
Janome 10000 software.

I am new to the 12000, but I'll follow your hints, and see what happens.

Re: Embird and 12000

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

The JEF design format contains a field that indicates the hoop required to stitch the design. Embird, like all non-Janome software providers, will need to reverse-engineer the new JEF format to figure out all the codes. The machine will not accept designs with invalid codes, or codes for hoops that are smaller than the design. At the moment the only software that has all the 12000 hoops is StitchBuddy for the Mac.

You *might* be able to make a GR hoop design by using Embird to save it for the MA hoop on the 11000. Horizon Link will open those designs and will convert the hoop to GR. At that point you can send it to the machine.

Re: Another stupid question....

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

You start out with ONE copy of Digitizer, either 10000, Pro 1.0, 2.0, or 3.0. When you buy an upgrade, you update that SINGLE copy to the MBX version (4.0). During this process the old dongle MUST be present to verify legal ownership. It is then deactivated and the new dongle is "blessed" to enable the upgraded version. When all the dust settles you still have ONE copy of Digitizer, but it's the latest version.

You can, however, install Digitizer MBX on additional computers using the upgraded DVD. Yes, it's an upgrade, but the DVD contains the full version of the software. To use it on another computer, just move the dongle to that computer.

After the upgrade, the old dongle is useless and may be discarded (or recycled). Note to those who do not own Digitizer - there may be people putting older versions of Digitizer on eBay, Craig's List, etc. who do not understand the process. The old dongle will not work and if you buy one of these used Digitizers you will not be able to use it.

Hi, I just got the MBX upgrade. My first question is this. Does installing the upgrade "kill" the 3.0 upgrade dongle? Can the upgrade be installed without the 3.0 dongle to protect it. I would like to be able to use it on another computer at my cottage. If the question has already been answered, I apologize.... I found no reference in the message list. Thanks, Grace

Re: Memory craftr 120000 upgrade

I haven't seen one, but I understand there is a sticker on the box that says "Version 1.01". You can also tell when you turn the machine on, as the version number is displayed briefly.

Re: Memory Sticks

Anne-if you don't have your machine yet, it will be the upgraded version-just look on the box to assure yourself and it will have a sticker that has the serial no and other things AND version 1.01 on it (I(the machine itself will flash it on the start up screen too).

I have designs saved on memory sticks which I use to laod patterns to my 11000, am I going to have to buy new sticks for the 12000. I understand that to upgrade the machine you have to use an empty MS, so I guess you need to have a seperate stick for this and delete the upgrade once you have done it. I suspect that my machine when I get it will not have been upgarded.

The 11000 uses a very small memory stick if I rememebr rightly, what size does the 12000 use????

Thanks......

Bonnie Bertha is here!!

I collected her this afternoon and have sucessfully loaded the update, had a little play. Tomorrow I will put the embroidery unit on and have a go at one of the absolutely fantastic designs that are built into the machine.

The instruction book will be required reading for a while I guess, plus I have 6 lessons at the shop.....my 11000 needle threader was well and truly jammed, she was looking very forlorn when I left her at the shop.


Re: bobbin winding

OK just tried again and yes I can use the stop start but not the foot pedal, I didn't think about the stop start as I have always used the foot pedal to wind bobbins, thank you.

I was in embroidery mode yesterday and had no trouble winding a bobbin. You have to either use the foot pedal or detach the pedal and use the start button.

Also, everyone probably already knows already, but when I first wound a bobbin it was only a little more than 1/2 full. You can turn the little screw beside the bobbin which moves the little "stop" in or out so you can stop the bobbin winding where you want it to be.
