    I have to share my funny experience. Liz you know this as I told you when I saw you on the weekend. I was happily sewing this quilt in the hoop, but had been hooping it all wrong. I was doing it the ACQ MC11000SE way. Well, before Liz came I thought I should read the manual and found out that I’m suppose to hoop the thing before I try the little magnets – I had already stitched out 3 big 9″ X 9″ squares, with great difficulty, I might add. They came out perfectly, but I did have fun placing the hoop, the heavy quilt onto the machine, holding it so that the magnets wouldn’t snap off continuously. I didn’t use one bad word while I was doing this either. Today I did it the correct way and wow! what a difference in making the job much easier. I will get it done much faster now. Thanks Janome for this wonderful machine. I will finish reading the manual, which I have done with my previous machines – don’t know why I thought I could skip that step this time.

      Hi Cheryl,
      yes we did have a chuckle over that: the magnets for the SQ23 & GR hoops on the Mc12000 are not the same as the Acufil hoop magnets on the Mc11000SE – They are for securing the fabric a little tighter in the hoops seeing as the hoops are so large.
      Continue having fun!

    Today I experienced how valuable this space is. I’m quilting a wall hanging quilt 50 X 60 not huge but big for me. It is so easy to work having all that space and it is not at all crowded.
