Hello Vickym

corel and MBX

gbmko
 

Dear Jim,I added a screen shot in files of the message I received when I tried to use the embroidery to graphics feature. I tried copying that plug in from essentials to graphics suite 5, and it did come up with the embroidery to graphics window...which never went away...and went to Corel...unuseable, and even when I went back to embroidery, the window was still sitting there.

I have windows 7, 64 bit. My corel graphics suite 5 will not even open now, and I tried uninstalling it, as I guessed the corel from MBX was interferring, but it wouldn't uninstall.

Also, when I open the design gallery, there is nothing there, like on the video by Trevor.

Any suggestions? Thanks so much! Barbara jean


Computer table for my 12000 machine

I have posted a picture of the Janome 12000 on a computer table that I purchased from Staples. Love the draw underneath that was meant for the keybord. Holds all kinds of stuff right there ready to use. Betty

The Spam: Re: As I Promised

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

Spam comes in many varieties, and not all of them come with destructive payloads. Some just try to get you to a site where you might spend money. As long as you aren't getting feedback about emails you didn't send, all is probably well. Signs of infection are emails you didn't send going to addresses in your address book, a computer that is running a lot slower than usual, or mysterious pop-ups when you surf the web. You are probably ok, but changing passwords wouldn't hurt.

Hi Jim,

I clicked on this link and was sent to some "Casino" site - I think. Once I realized it wasn't related to sewing I got out. Will this cause me any problem? I'm sure others may be wondering too, if we have compromised our computers by looking.

Thanks for any wisdom that you can shed of this for us.

Hi Vicky,
it is hard to explain, but when you google it you find lots of examples and you tube movies with demo's as well.
This is also a good article:
http://www.quiltingdaily.com/media/p/17250.aspx

The article in Quilting Arts actually speaks of Zen-doodling, but it is related to the Zentangle.

I also think an enlarged zentangle would be a nice starting point. (Quilting Arts has an issue where they do this for a quilt)

And adding the handstitches after the machine work gives it a final personal touch. So I will sign up for the course. The way the instructor talks to you is like you are sitting in a classroom with her so it is a good substitute for a real class which I can't attend as I live in Holland.

I won't tell Anna. It's for your use & you can do as you want & have time. Or not. I think the intent is more to open your mind to all the possibilities you machine has.

Hello Ladies,
thanks for mentioning this class. It looks like a fun way to play with the machine and getting to know it.

I'm making samples of the stitches right now, just in the default setting, but in one of the 2 minute-pieces of video they show for free, the instructor mentioned making a stitch bible and getting 3 very different stitches from 1 stitch by just altering length and width (which is obvious, but making the samples in default setting is already a lot of work so I didn't experiment yet).

Thank you Barbara. I had a ball with both versions of my project. I
took the class specifically for inspiration & it did not fail me. The
instructor's only rule was "There are no rules" --right up my alley & I
used it to the hilt. Almost didn't know when to quit beading. So yes,
I do recommend it. I also learned a new way to finish my fm
wallhangings. What I liked best was getting a totally new perspective &
a new way to use my machine & hand needlework. On my first project I
felted fabric from rayon thread scraps & silk scraps for the background
in lieu of recommended batik fabric. Go for it, you won't be sorry.

I like your project! I hadn't thought the stupendious stitching was a class I wanted to buy, as I could "do it myself" ,but now...maybe a class for inspiration might be nice. Do you recommend it, and what did you like best about it? I just bought the craftsy "Jean-ious: Reverse engineer" class, so can buy another course this week for $25.

Is anyone doing the free quilting block of the month? I've taught quilting for years, but am still doing it. I ALWAYS learn something from a teacher, so love to take classes, as well as teaching them. The blocks are fun so far. Barbara Jean

Gerda,
Where in the Netherlands do you live? I used to live in Soest. My husband was a pilot at the air base in Soesterberg. I don't remember much Dutch. My son was as fluent as a 5 year old can be, and was my translator most of the time...though most of the adults spoke English. My daughter was born while we lived there. I have the best memories of our time there. I need to go back and visit! Barbara Jean

I like your projects Barbara. And I appreciate that the pillow shows how to use stitch composer. I was frozen as to how to use it & when you mentioned the pillow used it I found the project. Now I have the guts to play with it.

I also don't like the O foot that well, for a different reason. I like to run my fabric right up next to the edge of the guide, although my instructor where I bought the machine says thats not really what you are supposed to do; not sure why. When I set the needle as far to the right as it will go, I still can't put the fabric right next to the guide and get a good scant 1/4" seam. It seems better on the acufeed 1/4" foot, but I have trouble seeing the guide on that one because of the design.

So today I just used the regular zig zag and found a good needle placement to use the edge as a guide.

Too bad, because I also have a Janome 3160 that I have been using for classes and that 1/4" foot can be set so the guide works exactly like I like to use it. Although my instructor in another class I am taking says she doesn't like the guides because they can move while sewing.

I posted the pictures (Barbara Jean album) I took of my version of the neck roll/tootsie roll pillow. I followed the directions exactly (I think!)for creating the stitch in stitch composer, and used the embroidery design suggested. I did a double needle stitch on the edge of tootsie roll, to check that out. It's pretty narrow, as you need to use such a narrow double needle. I also posted a picture of the blocks from the free craftsy quilt course. It was a great way to experiment with the different patchwork settings on the machine, to find that "perfect" 1/4 inch seam. (Which none of the pre-sets were, for me!) I must be old school, as I am not a big fan of the O foot. I want to be able to be able to see the edge of the fabric, and for perfect joinings, stitch right up to my pin..the guide on the O foot doesn't go over pins well. Maybe I can remove the guide? I did discover that the setting I saved in the patchwork setting for my perfect 1/4 inch with the O foot, was also the perfect setting for using the edge of the A and F foot as my guide, so that worked, except my view of the intersections was kind of obstructed. I'll need to check out the clear quilting foot. Barbara Jean
