Also make sure to wind the bobbin slowly to avoid stretching the thread! If you don't you're going to have trouble, the bobbin will get stuck onto the winder and may even damage the winder. Ask me how I learned that!

Yes. I would love a 12000 app. I had not had my 12000 a year when the 15000 came out. I have Acufil, so I have no plans to buy the 15000. Hope it happens.

Re: Janome Quilt Binder set for MC15000?

Julie
 

Thank you, Jim. You are a wealth of information. So, if I bought a 12000 needle plate it would then be attached to the binder? Then you remove the 15000 needle plate and somehow that will fit? Thanks! Julie

Heartbroken that information is not accepted as currency, Jim says:
What we found is that the 12000 needle plate fits the 15000. The quilt binder you have attaches to that needle plate. Easy and inexpensive.


Re: FMQ on the 12000

cas@...
 

Maybe try popping the stitch plate out and back in too, since it gives that warning whenever you change plates.

I am trying to FMQ and when I press the t-shirt and go into the quilting and it drops the feed dogs.  I do have the right foot on..but every so oftern I get a beep..then it says "Warning...make sure the correct foot is attatched"  It gets very annoying.  Sometimes it happens 5 min in or every few seconds.

What am I doing wrong.  I even tried exiting out of the tshirt and just dropping the feed dogs.  I still get the beep.



Hoping to spare you the guilt trip, Jim says:
One thing about technology is that it seems to cause people to assume that when it doesn't work they did something wrong. You are doing nothing wrong. The problem is a misadjusted sensor that is right on the very ragged edge of being set correctly. From time to time it drifts enough to tell the machine that something is wrong and you get the message. This particular problem was rampant in the early days of the 11000 and it was caused by the linkage in the presser foot knee lifter being slightly out of adjustment. That's probably not the problem on the 12000, but it is a problem with some sensor involving the height of the presser foot. Your dealer should address this.

 


Re: I need a 2nd machine for classes

sewbad54 <no_reply@...>
 

I also have the 15000 and I bought the Janome  Jem 760, It's a basic computerised machine with 60 stitches and good stitch quality and is a 3/4 size machine  small and light to carry to class.
It doesn't have auto foot lift and no under bed cutter . I can live without those functions for a days sewing. but it does have a setting to stop with the needle in the fabric,  I  have other machines I could take out, a  Bernina and a Pfaff but I just love the little Jem 760.
I belong to a Janome club in the UK ( the first established  Janome club and has been running for 4years ) and  lots of the members have also bought the Jem.

Hope this is of some help.

RE18 Hoop Clips

I purchased the RE18 and it is easy to use, but the clips are a joke, easily popping off anything slightly thick or layered.  Is there something you use instead or, or in addition to, the clips?

AirPlay also works with Macs and Windows machines - you don’t need Apple TV. If your iPad is AirPlay capable you just need AirServer which is only $15. We use it at school with great success on both platforms.

Interesting. I admit I mixed up Airplay with Airdrop. But, I do have the 2nd generation of iPad provided via Janome 15000 and it does have IOS 8 installed on it. But, it does not have an Airplay app on it or am I able to find the app to load. Everything I find from the Apple support site says that in order to use Airplay you have to have Apple TV which is another device which is not free. I also saw there a couple statements that said iPad 4th generations and above needed to operate Airplay. So, needless to say, I am very confused. 

Still struggling with the many changes in iOS 8, Jim says:
This version of iOS presented many huge changes and has caused enormous stress in those of us who must write for it. The Airplay icon will appear on the bottom of the video player in apps that support it. You can also find it by swiping up from the bottom of the screen to expose the control center. Tap the Airplay button to expose the options, which you will have to scroll to see all of them. Yes Apple TV is yet another $100 device, but by getting the "Reflector" app for your Mac or Windows computer you can Airplay from the iPad to that device. The app is $12.

I can vouch for the quilt or continuous line designs from  http://www.juliasneedledesigns.com/QuiltBlocks1.htm.  I have used them as is and also imported them into Digitizer, copied a portion (segment) and then used the feature that copies to a circle to create even more designs.  When packages are on sale for $.50 it is a fast and cheap way to get placemats or quilt squares quilted. Some of them are single, some triple stitch, and  stem stitch so you do have to look at the design.  I’ve used many of her outline designs for dish towels and my family members love them.

OT Craftsy and APPs on TV via ipad

cas@...
 

Jim, your answers about viewing the 15000 app options reminded me I’m trying to find a way to view my Craftsy classes on my TV.  You mentioned reflector and airplay,  will any of them mirror what’s playing on my ipad to my tv?  It does have a USB port if that matters.
 
In fact, if something like that worked for Craftsy would it work for my 15000 or other apps?  I did see an expensive apple tv device but I’m not sure that’s what I’m looking for.
Thanks,
Cas

Looking in the mirror and seeing his grandfather looking back, Jim says:
To mirror from the iPad to the TV you would have to have an Apple TV ($100). That's what's needed to use Airplay. The USB port on most TVs is for plugging in a USB stick with photographs. Reflector must be run on a computer, so it cannot be used on a TV.


Re: Invisible Thread - Need Advice

Patricia Ward
 

By "invisible thread"  do you mean something like Superior's polyester monofilament?   I used their top thread and their bobbins to do a wall quilt...  no problems...    Use one of their topstitch needles and reduce your speed...  using the FM quilting features on the machine with the reduced speed and the topstitch needle you should have no problems. I went through the entire project without any breaks!    Sewed beautifully.
