windows 10 Digitizer MBX

pam.fromthecraftroom <no_reply@...>
 

Hi.
Help needed I have just installed windows 10 on my laptop

 I have Digitizer MBX and it won’t open in windows 10 I am getting a pop up saying
"unable to open HASP run-time (E0009)"

Any suggestions on what I need to get it working again appreciated.

Pam

From the Department of Summer Reruns, Jim finds this:

As posted before, when installing MBX on Windows 10 you need to install this dongle driver. If you continue to have problems after that see this post.


My 12000 App updated

Jim Stutsman
 

We have updated the My 12000 app to version 1.2. This app now works on both iPhone and iPad. The same search function we added to the My 15000 app is available, and video playback is substantially improved. If you already have the My 12000 app on your iPad it will be upgraded at no cost. If you want it on your iPhone as well you can open the App Store on the phone, locate the app and you will see a cloud with an arrow coming out of it. Tap that to install it on your iPhone, again at no cost.

My Needle Change - Threader Experiment

cas <cas@...>
 

Well Anne, and other interested people.  I changed the needle, using the same size that started working for a while for no reason, just like it quit previously for no reason, and the threader no longer works.  I removed and put the new needle in four times, got another new needle and tried it a couple of times and gave up.  I followed all the tips we’ve been reading, and of course the manual instructions.
 
I’m back to hoping the dealer can adjust it.  If not, it’s too dang fussy in my opinion.  I was entirely ready to accept it was me inserting the needle wrong even after dozens of successful changes, just because if I’m doing it wrong I could learn to do it right.  I guess I’ll get proficient with the little needle gadget I have, the one I use with my $200 machine too!  I’m waiting to bring it in until another part arrives.  It’s only been since August 13th, good thing I’m so patient.  hah!

Heather,

The other day I pulled down a sweatshirt that I embroidered 20 years ago, almost, with my first embroidery machine.  We used freezer paper for our stabilizer.  That's what was available and by gosh, it worked!  That ancient sweatshirt's embroidery still looks good and it never did pucker or misbehave in any way.

Mary

I know that the sellers of stabilizer disagree with me BUT.... I think a well digitized design will stitch out well ....... You do not need ten types of stabilizer .


Re: Janome Bobbins

cas <cas@...>
 

I found these, but don’t need that many.  10 at a time is great.  I was surprised the one’s packaged in Janome packaging didn’t appear to be Janome bobbins, and that one was chipped.  The rubberized ones don’t chip as easily.

The prewound bobbins that come 108 in a box and use R-A bobbin thread ARE "J" bobbins which I discovered when I emptied my first bobbin from a box.  I was thrilled!!


Re: Janome Bobbins

cas <cas@...>
 

Do you have a link showing them?  Is there a brand?  Thanks.
Cas

Cranking up the link machine, this falls out:
These are Janome bobbins pre-wound with Robison-Anton bobbin thread. It's pretty easy to find sources, as the Janome pre-wounds are 108 to the box, while most others are 144. If you Google "108 bobbins" you will find multiple sources.

In case you don't know of Trevor Conquergood, he has some classes on embroidery called Embroidery Spectacular.  There is a cost involved but he is great.  He also has classes on digitizing and you can buy his DVDs if you like.  He has a site called Sunset Stitches with information.  You might be able to email him with questions.

Re: Embroidery training

HEATHER COWAN
 

Louann ... I think we all find our tricks and techniques.  I am an odd ball .... I guess but I don't sweat stabilizer.  I use mostly Marathon or Madeira thread.  I keep my machine lint free and change needles often.  I seldom have any puckers or fabric distortion ...... I use designs that are well digitized with good density and pull compensation.  I do NOT EVER hoop fabric.  I believe that the hooping causes pull on the fabric so it stretches a bit and then when unhooped it snaps back .... Then puckers.  
I starch my fabric well with STA-FLO blue starch mixed at about 30% starch to 70% water.  Very low cost and easy to get at grocery store.  I hoop med weight tear away for most things unless it needs washaway or cutaway for t-shirts.  I use the machine baste stitch to attach fabric to stabilizer and then let-r-rip.  With 100% cotton I am always happy with result.  With knits I seldom have trouble.  Sometimes in blend fabrics with lots of nap .(velour). .... I get the odd result that isn't perfect.  It it doesn't press out ..... I change fabric.  Life is so short and there are lots of fabrics.... Why battle with one that is cranky.  
I know that the sellers of stabilizer disagree with me BUT.... I think a well digitized design will stitch out well ....... You do not need ten types of stabilizer ....  FSL... Wash away.  T-shirts cut away and everything else has to have a sense of humour and accept tear away or it is put of here.
Good luck

Ceil,

 

Thank you so much for your information.  At seventy-five I'm all for saving money.  I have found that "Old Age is High Maintenance."  I will be calling Allbrands tomorrow.

 

Again, thank you.

Jim,

 

Thank you so much for the information regarding the apps for the Janome 15000 version 2. I will be ordering this app, the FootBook - reference app and the Ruler Foot/QB-S set. 

 

I was really confused after reading Google that the Ruler Foot could not be used on the Janome 15000/12000.  Thanks for clearing up that statement.

 

In the South we have a saying "The Cream Rises To The Top."  I must say that since joining this group I'm seeing the "Cream Rise To The Top"!!

 

The ladies/gents on this list are great - so willing to help one another - I saw this before I even asked my questions.

 

To everyone I say thank you so much.  As I learn I will do my best to contribute to this wonderful list.

Where did you get the DVD's?  It was my understanding they no longer sell those, and I have no way to use the apps.

Hi new member Bernie! I’ve been a round for maybe a year, but am still a relative newbie on the 15000, the first embroidery machine I’ve used. Jim is Jim Stutsman, owner of this g roup. Jim and his wife, before “retiring,” owned one of the most successful Janome businesses around. They are a wealth of knowledge. Luckily, Jim and Diane have continued to share their vast knowledge on this forum and in the DVDs. I’ve recently received a review copy and OMG are they FABULOUS. TOTALLY, totally, TOTALLY worth the price!

I was even thinking, Jim, as if the two of you need yet another project, you could take some of the basic sewing info you’ve already recorded on these, and put them into a DVD aimed at beginning sew-ers, folks who didn’t have the luck to take sewing a thousand years ago in Home Ec!

I’m still working my way through the extensive set of videos in the 15000 App, but I can tell you when I get to writing the blogpost/review, it will be a rave review. The foot book is also an app that applies to more than the 15000 (and I think most ? of the info in the foot book is probably in the 15000 app…Jim?), and would be valuable for folks using other brands of machines as long as they can make the not-large-leap to figure out what foot XYZ is on their own brand/machine. I’ve been sewing for (gasp and shriek) 50 years now (and I always like to point out I started in 2nd or 3rd grade), and I learned things both from the Foot Book and the 15000 app. Given how much I know, I consider that a high compliment to the thoroughness and knowledge in Jim and Diane’s videos.

Cheers, Sarah

Re: re-aligning embroidery part way through--Jim and all

Sarah A. Smith <sarahannsmith@...>
 

update: I got the new order of thread, and the machine picked up the design right where it left off, despite doing regular sewing in between. Using a more substantial stabilizer was the ticket—the third stitch-out was perfect. Thanks for all the help everyone!


When I have the table runner complete, I’ll share pics. It will be for Janome for their holiday season blogposts and whatnot.

I don't know about stitches on the machine itself, but in Horizon Link if you go to Emblink Tool and then select Monogram Tools you have quite a few Border and Normal Sew stitches available which may be suitable for what you want.

​You can save these as a .JEF+ file and read the file into MBX and them copy the stitches to where ever you want or even just save as a .JAN or .JEF file​
​.  You can even make them multicoloured, but of course you would need to do a test stitch to make sure it all came out right.
 
Hope that helps​
