Re: Metal Seam Guide attachment

Oh I just remembered that I bought a sliding cloth guide from my local Janome dealer when I bought my first Janome mc3500 sewing machine about 15 years ago. The packet leaflet says it is part number 200100100, I looked through the current Janome accessories but it isn't listed. It comes with two screws - a long one for a plastic bed machine & a shorter one for metal bed machines.

I just got it out & sure enough the short screw fits perfectly! Thanks for jogging my memory of this 👏🏻

But for duplicating rows of straight stitching there is already the Border Guide foot.  Maybe this new sliding foot can go wider.

I agree completely. I too have owned 5 Janome machines. The 15000 is by far the best. I've had mine a year, and use it weekly. It lets me be as creative as I want to be.

Have fun with your machine.

Upgrade to MBX 5.0

Mary Jane Weddle <maryjweddle@...>
 

Have any of you upgraded to the MBX 5.0?  If so, what are the changes and improvements in it?
One of the salesladies at my dealer's said that the upgrade would destroy the dongle that was required with the 4.5 program.  Is that a problem that I should be concerned about?  I have some other programs that do not require a dongle and I have had no problems with them.  She mentioned something about if I ever wanted to sell it, I would not be able to sell it because I would not have a dongle. I did not think I would be able to sell it anyway.  What are your concerns about this?
Thanks!

I have the 15000, and I love it! The embroidery is outstanding, and the sewing is great, too.

Hi, 
I also have a 15000 recently acquired.  In my orientation class, myself and  two other people also had issues with the bobbin winding and threading.   The service technician made minor adjustments and we are all winding and threading to beat the band.  Not sure that you are doing anything incorrectly.  

I believe It's an awesome machine.  I am very new to the group, embroidery and delighted in being  part of this group.

Re: Metal Seam Guide attachment

Anne Parker
 

Cas and all

There are many different seam guides out there - I also have another Singer one with a plastic piece under the guide that the screw goes through before screwing into the screw hole on the bed/needle plate.  This was supposed to stop any damage to the finish on the older machines - though I still prefer the original I sent a link to.

The link you provided Cas shows yet another version of basically the same thing and there is also a Singer version like that.  I also have a similar one on my German Vesta machines.

I don't like the idea of a magnetic seam guide on computerised machines, or those with a magnet in the bobbin mechanism.  I guess they are ok as many people use them, but I'm going to be cautious on that one.  I would use them on other types of machines - if I had a decent one!  If you like the magnet ones and are happy to use then there are lots of different ones of those out there too
​ including some wonderful ones from Sailrite, though the magnets they use are very strong so they won't move when sewing heavy canvas on their industrial type machines - I wouldn't put those anywhere near my computer let alone my computerised sewing machines!​


​My philosopy is not to be blinkered into buying things just because they say Janome on them, ​
​and to try other things I may already have first that may even work better.  I also will try things that others have said do not work  - though of course always being cautious to ensure I will not break anything!  I feel unless I tried them to see if there are issues that I could resolve, I would never know if it was something really simple and I might find something that was brilliant for my own use.

Just my thoughts! :0)

MBX 5.0? What to do with 4.5?

Meryl Margolies
 

Now that MBX 5.0 is up and running, what should I do with the 4.5 installation. I suspect that Horizon Link and AcuFil are still needed, but what about Easy Design, Easy Edit, and Design Gallery? I also have a Digitizer MBX Service Pack Icon.


Thanks for the advice.


You can use the Windows Control Panel to remove MBX 4.5. That should delete the desktop icons for EasyDesign, EasyEdit and DesignGallery, but if they remain you can delete those as well. The MBX Service Pack can also be deleted. HorizonLink and AcuFil are not related to Digitizer and should be left alone.

I’m glad I ordered one.  My last two blocks turned out too small.  I bet my O foot is bent.  I bought a metal magnet one too.

I have one of those old guides that was MY grandmother's.  It must be well over 50 years old!  Time to dig it out and put it on the 15000, especially since, the last time I used the big guide arm, it caught on the table and left a little design on the bed of the machine.

Thanks Anne,
I forgot the screw is attached to the clothe guide.  Thanks for explaining how the Singer guide works. I didn’t realize it has a sliding component.  I found a good picture, and it looks like I don’t have to buy a vintage Singer part:
I think I will like it better than the stick on guides.

The Janome cloth guide doesn't have a screw - it attaches to the embroidery unit.

The screws I was talking about are those you may have if you have bought any other screw attached Janome attachments such as the circular sewing guide or binder.   Or you can purchase an additional presser foot screw since the hole in the bed is the same size - try your foot screw to see how it fits.  Though when you purchase the Singer seam guide that usually comes with a screw anyway which should fit, but do check as you don't want to ruin the screw hole in your needle plate.

The guide slides left and right to whatever distance away from the needle you need.  When you have it where you want it you just tighten the screw down.  It doesn't of course give you as many options and distance from the needle as the cloth guide.

In order to set it I put a quilting ruller under the presser foot and check to see that the needle will drop on the mark that will give me the seam width I want - so if I want a 1 inch seam I set the ruler under the foot with the needle touching the 1 in mark from the edge of the ruler - put the presser foot down to hold the ruler firmly in place - butt the seam guide hard up to the side of the ruler and tighten the screw and then remove the ruler.
 
You can also angle the Singer guide diagonally so you have a point to feed the fabric too when you are going round a curve

I think the new Janome guide foot will be useful for when you want to sew several rows of stitching next to each other and keep them straight without having to mark the fabric - you can't do that with the Singer guide. - I think it would be more accurate than using a quilting guide bar.
