I am so upset.  I have been looking for my cloth guide for the last 2 months.  Really miss it.  I order another so I bet I will now find it.  Ugggggg

Lori,
The cloth guide is that big plastic attachment that fits into the place where the hoops connect. While it looks something like the one in this photo, it attaches to the embroidery arm while the arm is in the closed position.

Many thanks all for the info regarding the case. My concern was if the cloth guide wouldn't fit then I'd rather find something that would be for all accessories so I'm not hunting around looking for the guide when I needed it. The sewing room tends to get a bit untidy when in the middle of a project.
Sounds like it can work out so I'll put that on my list to get .

Thank you.  I have that thing and wondered what I would use it for LOL.

Hi Virgina,
I'm going to pop over to Janome as well, HOWEVER, from my experience, I've found that the manufacturer's videos, workbooks and instructions, assume that the user actually knows what they were doing :)  Though they may be helpful, I'm looking forward to Jim's videos myself...

  Are there any videos for the 15000.  I am trying to learn.  Had a Viking SE before so completely

Julia,
While there is not designated spot for the cloth guide, there is a padded and velcro piece that attaches to the inside top. I have no idea as far as its intended purpose but you can put the guide behind it with the clip hanging out over the edge.  You can then close the case as there is wiggle room all around it but I'm uncomfortable doing this as I don't want to end up snapping the guide in half.  After trying various things, it does seem that you can put the guide upside down on top of the front of the bottom section and the clip area will fit in and just hang over a little.  Again, there's wiggle room so you can close the case. 
I just found this out when playing around with it after reading your post so thank you!  (I have the 15000)

Having the 15K am anxiously awaiting the new videos so I know what I am doing.  I do realize these take time to make and will be happy when done, Claire S.

Put the Cloth Guide in the padded lid on the cover.  Someplace I read to do that, don't remember and it works.  I have the 15K and that should be the same, Claire S.

I'm not opposed to asking "stupid" questions on a public list, but this question may be more confusing than enlightening for some ladies.  I produced educational material for the Singer XL embroidery machines, what seems like a lifetime ago.  So, my question is in reference to a statement on the website:
 
The videos will NOT play in a DVD player.
 
Considering the web browser comments I have to assume that these link to a website...?  Just a technical question that comes from doing things "old school" I guess  LOL
 
Pat
SewAmused@...


No, the videos do not link to a website. They actually are made to play using a web browser and a DVD drive on a computer. Most computers built in the last 10 years or so have a DVD drive instead of just a CD drive, which is all that's required. They will play on all versions of Internet Explorer, FireFox, Google Chrome and Apple Safari. Adobe Flash may be required for IE or FireFox.



Re: Videos

Pat Bryant
 

Can someone send me a link to the videos?  I really have to learn the embroidery on this Janome!  I'll always fall back to my much older Singer XL until I get with the program on this machine.  This 12000 is totally different than my old machine!
 
Thanks!

Does anyone have a "favorite" stitch setting for the scant 1/4 i

Sharff <sharff@...>
 

I have the 12000 and have been using the VD Walking Foot to stitch 1/4 inch seams. The fabric edge lines up with the  outside of the foot. It works like a charm holding the cloth down and making perfect seams. You can experiment on making a scant 1/4 inch by moving the needle position.

I believe if you adjust the cloth guide to the right 1/32 (select button) you will be sewing a 1/4" scant. What is nice is you can use the straight stitch plate which supports the cloth better, The real question in my mind is what foot to use to keep pressure on the edge of the cloth. I have read the clear stitch foot is good for this application but has anyone used the "edge stitch foot" and feel that would hold the cloth down using the center needle position with the single stitch plate?

Okay my ignorance is showing.  What is the 'cloth guide'?  I have been using the foot with the stop at the edge and moving my needle to a setting of 9.  It gives me a 1/4" but I can't seem to get the scant part of it.
Thanks

Accessory Case - Worth It?

I saw the case and was wondering if all the accessories we have for the MC12000 will fit in it? I did read one(only 2 ) review on Amazon which said the Cloth Guide did not fit in the case. Is this correct?

Thank you all for you patience while I get up to speed.

Thank you. Any reason why that information is not in the manual or did I miss it?

Jim says:
I don't know why Janome leaves some things out of the manual, but the fact that they do is the reason this list exists!
