Horizon Link Manual

 

I was able to go online and get the updated version for Janome 15000 and update for the Horizon Link Suites.  I'm wanting to find a manual or instructions for Horizon Link Suites.  Can anyone give me information on where I might find it?

Thanks,

Donna G. in very cool AZ.

I don't ever see digitizing in my future and the MBX software isn't on my list.  I just thought this might be good for someone like me who'd like to have some control and input into designs without the digitizing process.  It says the program digitizes for you but one drawback, if I've got this correct is that you can't import images for it to digitize.  While I can connect line A to line B, I can't draw a decent stick figure, so maybe this isn't for me either and I should just stick to hoping to find designs I like for that reason.
It does give the option, it seems, to create quilting designs or use the ones they provide.  I'd certainly like to do that.  Maybe I'll just wait for the next sale.

I have it and it has great potential! It is actually an amazing program! I have designed applique with embroidery design for the appliqué edge quite successfully.
If you understand how to use EQ7, then you will have a better chance with EQ stitch. You need to know how to use the different work tables, particularly the Drawing Table and the best way to do that is to find YouTube tutorials by Yvonne Menear. I have the book by this author, 'learning EQ Stitch and it is clear and concise.
I will say that both EQ7 and its plugin, EQ Stitch, have a bit of a learning curve. But, they offer so much for a small amount of money compared to other programs for digitizing. There is really no comparison between Horizonlink and EQ Stitch!


Good deal, but be ready to study a bit!

The only differences that come to my mind are

It shows the special spool cap for large spools in the accessories and mentions using it at the place where using the other spool caps is mentioned.

It shows the new function of being able to go directly to a stitch number in embroidery using the 'calculator button' on the ready to sew window.

It also shows the new stitches - these are added to the relevant section of stitches at the back with numbers that begin with A - so A01 to A10.   They are inserted in between the other stitches so you have to look for them - not sure why.

It mentions the use of the optional RE18 hoop at places.

There may be other things but that's all I can think of right now.  There was a pdf with just he changed pages somewhere that you could download.  I thought I had downloaded it but I can't find that either!!  I don't think though that it's a big deal.

Re: EQ Stitch

I was asked to write a review of EQStitch last year for Rio Designs, the UK importer of this program. It appeared in the UK Flair magazine this summer (unfortunately no longer trading).
It is a simple, easy to use add-on program for owners of EQ7.
If you are an avid user of EQ ( like myself) if will be most useful to use & see your embroidery designs on your quilts.
It will create simple embroidery, machine appliqué & quilting designs quickly.
Obviously, it is not a powerful digitising program like Janome MBX, but great fun to work with!
Hope this helps,
Cathy.

A friend of mine purchased that program and unless they have changed it, we did not see any way to combine embroidery designs or lettering on one design in the program.  Please verify this with the EQ.   We didn't study it thoroughly, but are not sure it gives you much beyond HorizonLink.

Re: 'Addition of function for direct input of stitch numbers'

Anne Parker <annegparker@...>
 

Thanks Jim

So it's not a different function than the one mentioned under NEW Embroidery features.  In fact it's the same - I wonder why they put it under Other NEW Features as well?

I was hopeing to be able to just punch in a stitch in the sewing mode and go straight to it rather than having to click through various screens - maybe that will come in time!  My Elna, which has around 400 stitches, lets me do that and I love the ease of it.   I guess it's a case for having more than one machine! :0)  They all have their great features!

Maybe I just need more time to get used to the Janome way of doing things.

What exactly does this mean?  Is it just referring to being able to select/set the stitch number when embroidering, or is it something to do with selecting a stitch number in sewing mode?

Where do I find instructions in the manual for this if it's in sewing mode?  I've searched but can't seem to find it.

See page 121 in the V2 manual, specifically Jump key. That explains how to enter the exact stitch that you want to go to in a design that is open in embroidery mode.

Re: What stabilizer to use for FSL

maggie cooper
 

Janet, I didn't say how many manufacturers, only I experimented with about 15 water soluble stabilisers. That included different weights, types and brands. I also said many of WSS stabilisers were simply rebrands, same as the cutaway and tear away stabilisers.


In England we have a company called Soluble technology that makes a broad range of water soluble products for various industries  including embroidery. We have at least one other but I can't remember their name.  China has at least 14 manufacturers of WSS and non woven embroidery backings that  export to the west. India has at least 6 water soluble embroidery and woven plus non woven stabiliser manufacturers that export to the west and far east. European and North American importers specify requirements, branding then distribute to the various suppliers etc. By the time the end user gets them they have no idea where the manufacturing plant is located or  who the original manufacturer is.


At one point I looked into sourcing my stabiliser requirements direct from India or China, but as an individual user couldn't hope to use the minimum quantities the manufacturers specify so stuck with 2 wholesale embroidery suppliers here in Great Britain. They have the purchasing power I don't have, the import licenses, and know the red tape.

Re: Version 2 manual

Jeannie,
I have the V1 book and found differences on pages 91, they added Maximum zigzag width adjustment and p. 135-136 where they changed the directions for creating a square frame.
There may be others but those are the two I found.  I printed out the new pages and clipped them to my book but I'll refer to the online guide if need be.

The manuals are already in .pdf.  On your computer, just save it and print if needed.  On iPad open in iBooks and either print from there if printer is compatible or send to self by email or put it into Dropbox , if you have it.  From Dropbox or email you can save it to your computer.

Shredding thread on 12000

mjdutro@...
 

Jim I am hoping you have an answer for me.  Underneath the thread guide on the top of the machine as illustrated on page 13 of the instruction book for the 12000.  When I took off the removable cover there is a tiny vertical tube that is made with a sharp crimp.  I thought that that was fraying the thread so I turned the sharp side away from the thread path.  It worked for a while.  Then it went back to fraying the thread every 5 minutes or so.  Also the brush seems to be about an eighth of an inch too short.  Any ideas?  I am so frustrated.  My dealer is 100 miles of country road away.  Martie in CA

Taking time out from watching the tube, Jim says:
The technical name for the tiny vertical tube is "roll pin", so called because it's made by rolling a sheet of metal into a tube. I've never seen one fray thread and it shouldn't matter what direction it faces. The brush is only there to gather fuzz - it doesn't need to touch the thread. If you are certain the thread is fraying there look under the spring. It's a piece of metal that looks like the end of a ski. Sometimes debris will collect under it.

It's also possible that there is a wad of thread/lint caught between the tension discs. That can also cause fraying and shredding. With the machine lock engaged, shine a bright light into the tension slot and gently probe with a long thin needle.
