If you have the Scan&Sew with your 9000 you can buy Dakota Collectables and others that have the SEW designs and transfer those designs to the disk from the CD. You can still download SEW designs. I just recently downloaded some and they worked just fine. I also have the 12000. It does much bigger designs, but they are no better looking than my old 9000 which has been a fantastic machine for the 14 years I have had it.
I have just about every design card Janome made. I am just recently cleaning out my sewing inventory and am going to be selling these cards. If you are interested you may let me know here and I will send you a listing of what I have.
Have a good day!
