Re: 15000 thread breakage

I was having a problem with thread breakage while fmq.  I skipped the last thread guide right before the needle and that solved the problem.

I agree Floriani thread is not the best.  I have had horrible experiences with it shredding as well.  I always use my yellow dot bobbin case for embroidering and have a thread guide on the back of my machine.  I also only use Red  Janome needles which are 90/14 and I use them for everything except for a very dense design such as Anita Goodesign collections then I use Microtex 80 which have a really sharp point.  

It is good you have an appt with your dealer bring a sample of some of what you are having issues with he may be able to help.

For all of you who have the 15,000 I have a question.  I am having a terrible time with thread breaking. I have tried about everything I can think of to fix this issue. My machines do not seem to like floriani thread which I have a ton. I have tried Robison Anton which seems somewhat better.  I have put the thread on a separate holder and guide.  I have purple janome needles in my machine.  I have the embroidery bobbin case in.  I put janome bobbin thread on the bobbin and still have many thread breaks especially when embroidering. I am very frustrated with this machine. I have an appt with my dealer on Tuesday but wanted to see if anyone else has this problem or any help!!  I am ready to toss the machine out the window but it cost too much!!!  Any help will be greatly appreciated. 
Thanks, Lynne

Re: Stabilizing Stabilizer

J Fraker
 

I don't use stabilizer at all on towels.  I use two layers of tulle in a color that matches the towel on top of the embroidery.  The tulle presses down the terry loops and makes the embroidery look much better.  Cut away the tulle close to the embroidery design when finished and it is invisible.

What is 'special' about the 'purple tip' needles?  What is a "cobra tip" needle?

 

Searching for a mongoose to fend off the cobras, Jim says:

The pointed end of a purple tip needle flares out like the head of a cobra. This helps to eliminate skipped stitches. They are good for quilting, embroidery and pretty much any sewing.

 

special purple tip for Janome
purple tip cobra tip needle


I do have 'purple tip' Janome needles, and some Kenmore needles that are 'purple' according to the purple lettering on the hard plastic needle dispenser package, although the needles themselves are not painted.  These are from quite a long time, and I have 'other colors' of Kenmore needles as well.  Are the purple Kenmore needles the same as purple tip Janome needles?  I always used heavier needles for heavier fabrics.  Have the 'recommended uses' changed?

I am very curious...so much has changed while I was away and not sewing. 

Thank you.

If you are happy and your machines are happy... Why change needle brands.  I use organ as it keeps me and my machines happy.  I can get them in bulk at a good price and I change my needles often as I believe it is a good economical way to keep the machine running well.   Organ makes the special needles I need for the serger and multi needle machines and they make the special purple tip for Janome which is a better price before rebranding.  If you use schmetz and they are satisfactory.   ....... Old adage....."if it ain't broke...don't fix it".

If you run out of needles and want to try something new try one package and then maybe make a change.  With the exception of the purple tip cobra tip needle you probably won't see much difference in performance.   That might not be true if you use machine needles that are other than these two brands.  I have no experience with Klasse     

Or other brands.

I am getting a new 15000 from a dealer who is a great mechanic but they don't give lessons what is available from Jim to make the experience smooth, I haven't really kept up with Janome products since my 11,000,  I've had Janomes since the 70s and have digitizer even have customizer on my xp computer.  Do I need a cloth setter and is one available

Trying to distinguish "want" from "need", Jim says:

Is a Clothsetter available? Yes. Do you need it? That's your call. If you currently use one for your 11000 you would probably want one.


Re: Floriani Question

Cheryl Paul
 

Hi,


I have been using Floriani thread ever since I attended an event at my dealers about 2 years ago. I have NEVER had a thread breakage issue and I’ve used it on both the 12000 & 15000 and now my Elna 860. It is not as tightly wound as some other brands I’ve used and they caused me no problem either. I do use the Floriani stabilizers as well, but the other brands don’t cause me grief either. When I did have problems using metallic threads, I put a bit of “Sewer’s Aid” up the spool and down the other side a few times and then the problems disappeared. You don’t need much and it certainly alleviates any grief. If you are having problems, try different brands of different stabilizers, needles and thread. I’ve only ever had a problem once and that was using a certain colour of green Wonderful thread, changed to the Janome at that time and everything went tickety boo. I threw out both spools of that colour and moved forward from there.
My suggestion to a problem is to try something different and move forward. To the person that started with the thread break - I’d try some sewer’s aid, if I were you - don’t throw out the thread until you know for sure that it is causing your grief. Who knows maybe there is a burr on the hook race, bobbin case or somewhere in the thread channel. If that is the case, you will start to have other issues as well. Have your dealer check the machine out, next time you take it into a class or remember to mention this when you go in for the general service of the machine. Your 12000/15000 should handle anything you throw at it.

Re: Floriani Thread

ceilsews <no_reply@...>
 

I tried out many different brands of thread before buying a set.  None of them had a breaking problem.  I have one spool of Floriani and the "problem" with it is that it kept unraveling at the cut end.  I didn't have that problem with any other brand. But I thought it had the nicest shine of all the brands.  I loved Robson-Anton, especially how easy it was to detach the base but could not store bobbins under it.  I never found a thread set that I would have designed :) and I guess we all have different wants and needs as far as that goes.  I ended up buying Madeira and I love it, especially the storage in drawers and how I can fit a bobbin under the spool to store BUT it's difficult for my hands to open the bottom of these and get the starter thread out.  I use a tiny, stubby screwdriver to pry them open.  After using a color it becomes easier to open, however.
My advice is, before buying a lot of one brand, try many and see which ones you like best then narrow it down.  I tried most of the name brands and am sorry that I didn't try out some of the more inexpensive threads to see if they'd work for me.  Also, if you're going to eventually buy a lot of threads, you might want a brand that has many colors, some are more limited.  But you can also buy among various brands too although I think the problem with that would be if you wanted to match colors.  Hope some of this is helpful.

Re: Another Newbie Question

cas <cas@...>
 

If I turn the bobbin warning off but I’m worried I’ll run out of bobbin thread then I use the almost empty bobbins on top, placing it on the spindle instead of thread, and use a full bobbin in the bobbin case.  Also, some pre-wound bobbins are meant to be reused, the Janome ones are, but some are not and some people have reported the bobbin jumping or pulling the thread out of the thread take-up lever if they are the kind that aren’t meant to be re-used.

How do you all "manage" your bobbins? How low do you go, and what do you do with what's on the bobbin after the warning? I'm using pre-wounds, and the bobbins are recycled for regular use after the embroidery. It just seems like an awful waste.


Re: Stabilizing Stabilizer

cas <cas@...>
 

I think it was here I read someone uses tulle (inexpensive at local store) instead of stabilizer for the towels.  You can try the search feature.  I never have much luck finding threads I’ve read though.
 
There are many posts about hooping ideas too.  You can make a frame out of other heavy material that you’ve hooped with a cut-out for the design you are embroidering on the towel.  Then you can pin the towel to that hooped fabric or glue it with wash away glue, or spray baste.
 
Good luck with it,
Cas

App News

Jim Stutsman
 

Most members are probably not aware that Apple released the 4th generation Apple TV recently. It was of big interest to me because this version supports apps. I am happy to say that our My 15000 app is now available on Apple TV 4. OK, cue the yawning and cricket sounds! However if you've taken the plunge and cut the cable with Apple TV 4 AND you have the My 15000 app you can install the Apple TV version of the app at no cost from the TV App Store. It knows if you own the app and lets you install it for free. If you don't have an iPhone or iPad, but you do have Apple TV 4, you can get the app in the TV app store. The entry price for Apple TV is $149, well below even the least expensive iPad. I realize that for the majority of you this announcement is of little interest, but for one or two of you it may be helpful.


We now return you to your regularly scheduled list.

Re: 15000 thread breakage

I use a thread stand with my Floriani threads. I use the little doohickey (thread guide) that comes with the 5-spool thread stand made specifically for the 12000/15000, (Part #03325515). The guide fits in the additional spool pin hole. If you want to use the actual stand you need to loosen a couple setscrews on the back of the machine and attach the thread stand, then tighten the screws. The only pain: If you need to transport the machine you will probably want  to remove the spool stand.

Love my Floriani threads.

My 15000 is new and I just purchased a set of 100 spools from my Janome dealer this weekend on a 50% off sale. I have not tried the thread yet but I have heard good things about the thread and the price was good.


Now I am worried - Yes it was on sale but I still paid a hefty price.


Is anyone out there using Floriani successfully? Please tell me that there are plenty of Floriani/15000 users out there otherwise I am going to have to try to return the set.
