That’s great, I liked it when I looked at Anne’s picture.  I bet I could get one on eBay.  I have stick on ones from Nancy’s Notions.  http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/6-in-1-stick-n-stitch-guide-clover.aspx?gclid=Cj0KEQiA3t-2BRCKivi-suDY24gBEiQAX1wiXLRi1Oq7-Ql97AioF2vJxCwro0O-DUEsTPZKTjUUbBIaAmK88P8HAQ
 
I don’t have a big screw though.  Anne, did you say I can use the screw off the cloth guide?  I don’t use the cloth guide because my machine is recessed with a custom insert and the embroidery unit is not attached.  I don’t see how the Singer metal guide is adjusted for different widths though.

Wow! the Singer guide does work on my Janome 15000. I never liked the Janome guide as it doesn't allow for going around curves. For some reason I saved all my 1960's Singer feet and attachments; now I know why. Thanks!

I just checked w/ my dealer. They called Janome U.S. and were told the foot was not available yet in the U.S. and that there was not date yet for the release.

Thank you for your responses. I took your advice and called my dealer. I am three hours away from her now but she was so helpful. (More than the local dealer)  She knew right away what had happened. I am mailing the foot to her (along with the broken spring) and she is sending me a replacement. I am so grateful for your responses. I can still use my machine to finish the diaper bag I was working on. Yeah.

It probably is already. Just contact a Janome Dealer and order it.

I too had that happen and my dealer just gave me a new foot.  Take your spring and foot into your dealer he should replace it for you.

Sorry my previous message didn't go through. I was sewing with the even feed foot on my 15000 when I heard a strange noise like a crunch. I am now looking at a spring laying on the plate. Ok, I'm thinking maybe it came from the EVF so I remove it and replace it with a regular foot. Sews fine. Put back on the EVF and sews fine. Being faint of heart and loving my machine I decided it needed to go to the sewing machine hospital. The spring came from somewhere and was there for a reason, even if it is tiny. Had to happen when I'm making a gift for a baby shower. Guess I'll have to use one of my other machines. Not a happy quilter.

Springing into action, Jim says:
It sounds like the spring got under the foot. There are a number of springs inside the machine, above the needle, but most are wrapped around other parts and unlikely to fall under the foot. The even feed, or in this case AcuFeed, foot has a "helper" spring that assists its feed dogs returning to the front when the needle comes up out of the fabric. That could wind up getting caught during stitching, hence the crunch. There have been other reports of AcuFeed feed breaking, so I'm leaning toward that being the problem. Because of how the AcuFeed foot works, it might still be seeming to work without the spring, but might not do its job very well. If other feet are working OK, I would keep using the machine. You can have your dealer look at the machine, as well as the AcuFeed foot and spring, at your convenience. I don't think there is any danger in continuing to use the machine though.

Janome 14000

Ann
 

I just purchased the Janome 14000.  Will this model be included in this Yahoo group?  I have the 11000 and it was one of those that had a lot of problems with embroidery and I finally just quit trying to do it.  I bought it just after it came out and a lot of people had troubles with it until they finally worked out the problems.  I still wanted to embroider so I thought I'd upgrade to the 14000.  It's supposed to come in on Friday and I'm as excited as a little kid waiting for her new toy!!


The 14000 is essentially a 15000 without the WiFi capability. It has fewer built-in stitches and designs and doesn't come with all the hoops that the 15000 does. However it's price is substantially lower than the 15000. Yes, we will definitely support the 14000. I've added it to our FootBook app after finding that it comes with the Embroidery Couching Foot Set (also just added), which was not available at the time the 15000 was launched. There's a good chance that the My 15000 app will also apply to the 14000, although I have been unable to download the instruction book to verify that.

I bought this workbook (I live in the Uk) when I first owned my 12000 – I have since upgraded to the 15000 and have sold the wookbook.

I found it so useful for learning the machine. That’s why I want the one for the 15000, but apparently us in the Uk won’t be getting it.

How bonkers is that?

I thought I was sharing the self binding tutorial but clicked another one.  It might be on one of those 10 pages but I can’t find it.

Self Binding Video, Other Techniques, Rolled Hem, 15000 App

Self-Binding (like I mentioned was in the Workbook  Applique Sampler)
Other Technique videos:
 
If you are doing the workbook and try the rolled hem exercise on page 53 they left some steps out unless you watch the video.  They must assume you are by your PC or laptop.  It should say to fold the fabric over twice and cut it an an angle at the top before attempting to guide it into the foot.  The manual does say to fold the fabric over twice.
 
I saw Diane’s tip on the My 15000 app/Rolled Hem to stitch a few stitches, pull the fabric out to make the threads long.  Then re-insert it and use the threads to help hold the fabric taut and guide it into the groove.  She explains it so much better than me, and her voice is much smoother. 
 
I have learned more effectively by looking at the My 15000 app prior to starting each project.

I vaguely remember seeing a workbook available for the 12000 - don't know if it's available in UK or exactly what's in it, but I seem to remember thinking it might be useful - and since there are many things similar, just maybe the buttons/icons are in slightly different places on both machines it might be worth looking at.

Anyone every bought/used the 12000 workbook?

When do we think that Sliding foot will be available in the U.S.?


Re: 9mm Janome Guide Foot

Thanks. I ordered the 9mm OV foot, and I would NEVER risk my machine on a lark. That's probably why I ask dumb questions. I believe in the measure twice, cut once theory of life

I don’t think it would be worth the expense to ship it from America.  I’m enjoying it because I’m fairly new to all things sewing related and to sewing machines with so many features.

Re: 9mm Janome Guide Foot

Thanks for the clarification Jim - the blog does mention moving the needle to get various widths of seams and using the foot for Heirloom sewing which is one of my 'things' and I can see it being useful for sewing evenly spaced pin tucks, and several rows of hemstitching that you want to be acurately spaced.

At the bottom of the post the blog gives the details for both the 7mm and 9mm feet. The 9mm one is the new one out.

Sorry if I confused anyone by saying I wanted to use the 7mm on the 9mm 15000.  My reason for this was that  the 7mm one will fit the shanks on all my other machines which are all low shank.  The 9mm one would slide around a bit as the pin, left to right, where the foot attaches is wider than on a 7mm foot and I would probably encounter issues with the foot not being lined up with the feed dogs - hence my question about a low shank foot holder for 9mm feet.  It seems there isn't one.

Scratch that - this came in right after a post about the OV foot and my reply applies to only the OV foot. The Sliding Guide foot works just fine for decorative stitching. Our 7mm video shows it being used for decorative stitches. I think they are saying it is suitable for continuous rows of straight stitching, but not just for that function alone.


Re: 15000 Workbook Applique Sampler

cas <cas@...>
 

Ok, thanks Cheryl,
So it’s just an error in the book.  I wasn’t sure if it was locking at the beginning or not.  Some of the stitches seem to just start without locking but I guess they all lock unless they require reverse, like straight stitch and a few other utility stitches?

Cas, I think that when you start your row, you’ll see that it automatically locks the stitch and to finish you touch the reverse button and it locks again.
