Re: Clothsetter MC 12000 - Do you have one?

Lou Ann
 

I use mine all the time. I find hooping to be frustrating especially when EVERYTHING wants to shift. I can eliminate the shifting between cloth and stabilizer with a little spray adhesive or use a fusible and the clothsetter keeps the outer hoop from scooting around with me chasing it with the inner hoop. Now I only have to grapple with getting the fabric to stay square with the markings in the inner hoop! I’m glad I bought mine.

Dot, you haven't done anything to cause the action you are describing, it happens to others as well. there are a few things you can try to prevent it happening.  The first is to check you don't have automatic centering on, you find that under Setup, (top tool bar) Work environment, Hoops, Automatic centering, if there's a tick beside the auto centering just click it to turn it off.


If it doesn't show Auto centering is selected, close the dialogue box and select the runline tool, draw a line or shape, and see if the first design moves over, if it does it's time to reset the programs default settings. To do that close Easy Design, go to Start, All Programs, scroll down the list to the Janome folder, click on it once and a drop down menu appears. Scroll down the contents of the drop down menu and select Revert, a pop up menu appears asking if you want to  Restore Defaults Templates, just put a tick in the Defaults box and click OK.


If the hoop still moves, you can just ignore it and insert another design or if you want to add text do that, when you have 2 designs in the hoop you can rearrange both. I've found it comes and goes.  I have created shortcuts to Delete Recovery Files and Revert on my desktop and use both weekly, sometimes daily if I'm hammering MBX, it helps cut down the annoying little actions that occur when I've been using the program solidly for 12 hours or more at a single sitting.

I,too, would love a 5x7 hoop for the 12000.
I live in the UK and have just emailed the MD of Janome UK, to ask whether one is going to be available or not.
If I get a reply, I will post it here.
Watch this space.

I have the cloth setter and find it useful for some things.  I don't use mine often, but have never been sorry that I purchased it.  I've had a cloth setter with each Janome embroidery machine I've owned.  It took some convincing that it was necessary and useful, even though I'd already spent my money, but once I learned "how" to use it, I wouldn't like to be without it.  My biggest challenge is storing it, so that it doesn't need calibrating each time I want to use it.

I think that you may have the box ticked to centre the design in the hoop.  If you go to "Setup", in the drop down menu pick "Work Environment", then the second tab "Hoops" - there you may find that there is a check mark in "Automatic Centre". Take out the check mark and you should then be able to place your design anywhere you like in the hoop.

Dot,

With the MBX software if you can't move the design out of the center you have a tab checked on that keeps it in the center.  If you go to the Work Environment and then to Hoops.  Look just below the hoops size and you will see a tab with Automatic Centering.  If it is checked un check it.  That should solve your problem.

I took two pieces of fabric, bigger than the hoop.  sewed a square to fit the working opening of the hoop.  cut our the center, turned inside out.  Now I have a “hoop-sized prototype”.  I lay it on my cutting mat, making it square, lay a piece of stabilizer over the opening.  Pin it, baste it in straight stitch (using my small machine) and I have a stabilizer for my hoop.  using the basting stitch in the embroidery mode, I attach the piece of fabric to be embroidered.  then embroider.  tear-away, cut-away, wash-away the stabilizer.  Uses less stabilizer, less fabric. A little extra work, bur great savings of both stabilizer and fabric.

Has anyone in this group purchased the Clothsetter for the MC12000? Good or bad? Trying to decide if I want to invest $$ for it or look for something else.

I cut my stabilizer into longer lengths, roll it up towards me, in front of the machine, then set my design to the top of the edit box, sew it out remove and then re hoop , and all I lose is the small bit  have used at the top.
Works for me, instead of using a separate piece every time!

I thought there were some generic hoops out there from third party companies but maybe not for Janome...



Generically speaking, Jim says:
The only non-Janome hoops available for Janome machines are those designed to use magnets or sticky stabilizer, and the options for the 12000 and 15000 are nearly nil.



Re: 5x7 hoop

Hi Girls,

I think all of us with the 12000 & 15000  would like the 5 x 7 hoop.  I wonder what would happen if we bombarded with emails about when they will have one available .Go to www.Janome.com  at the top of the page on the black line, right end  there is CONTACT US.  Click on that and fill in what has to be filled in.  Even ask  your friends  that have the 12 & 15 to do also.

Maybe we could finally get some action.

Left needle position with straight stitch plate

Norma Jeanne
 


Keeping with this same topic I've been seeing alot of conversation regarding the left needle position and the straight stitch plate, is this just with the 15000? or am I missing something here.  My stitches are all greyed out (except the first 3) when using the straight stitch plate.  Jim you mentioned stitch #4? how can I get that to work or is that just for the 15000?
Norma
PS. I tried to start a new subject but Yahoo is not letting me back to the home page cause it's been awhile....they're saying to reset my password or start a new account and none of that works..has anyone else been having a problem with Yahoo?


Jim says, from the left side of his mouth:
The 15000 definitely does allow using stitch 4 for left needle position with the straight stitch plate. The bobbin system is different from the 12000, and the straight stitch plate is as well, so that may be why.

Re: 5x7 hoop

Each machine from each company has its specific own hoops that fit and are calibrated to that machine... so you can only use Janome 12000 hoops on a 12000.  In the same respect you can't use a Janome 11000 hoop on a 12000. 

Keep the hoop with the machine that it was made for.

Can we only use Janome hoops?



Digitizer 4.5

dbrotsch@...
 

I have been using digitizer for some time and never had this happen. I have must have activated something but I don't know what. After I bring in a design, either Jan or Jef in, the design is in the center of the hoop. I can not move it from the center. I grab it and move it to the corner only to have the whole hoop move on the screen and instead of the design moving to the corner the whole hoop has moved in the direction ie. upper left corner of my screen----and the design is still in the center of the hoop. What have I done to cause this action?

I know many people, including myself, that are very disappointed in the hoops for the 12000. You waste so much stabilizer with the SQ hoop. I was speaking with a Janome sales person shortly after purchasing my machine (18 months ago) that a 5x7 was in the works. It sure would be nice to have.

Re: Left needle position with convertible free motion foot

sue@...
 

another question.  what is the advantage in using the QB-S.  I have just purchased the QB-H, but wonder if I should return it and get the 9mm size instead



Hoping not to be returned, Jim replies:
Unless you are going to be using a zig zag stitch wider than 7mm, you can keep the QB-H foot. The main difference between QB-H and QB-S is the width of the opening in the plastic toes. For free motion stitching, the opening in the closed toe may not allow stitching in either left needle or center needle position. You can still use the straight stitch plate, just make sure the stitch you choose allows the needle to be centered in the hole of the foot.
