You will love your new 15000. It is best sewing machine I’ve owned and I’ve had many - this is my 5th, in 30 years, top of the line Janome machine and the 4th embroidery machine. I highly recommend that you purchase Jim and Diane’s 15000 App available here:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/my-15000/id914652465?mt=8
There is something for every feature on the machine with a nice video and Diane’s calm voice explaining it all. Nothing left to guess when you want to try something new or use a foot that you don’t use often and need a little lesson on it’s use.


Have fun with your machine.

Re: Metal Seam Guide attachment

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.

Should we be successful we will email you accordingly.

 

Kind regards,

Hi, there has been a lot of discussion on the yahoo 15000 group about the work book. Quite a few members in America are finding this book very useful and we in the uk would also like to be able to purchase it. Please, Please could you not source it for us here? We have no local classes and although I attended the very good class with Ann White last year, I feel there is still a lot,to learn.....in my own time with the aid of this book. I look forward to your help, in this. 


Here's hoping!!

Re: Janome 14000

Valerie Munford
 

Sorry posted my previous reply before adding this. 
These are the differences between the 14000 and 15000. 
No cutter on the foot control
No acufil
No wifi
No accessory case
No asq22 hoop
No acufeed UD open toe foot
Magnifier - only 20 included
Couching feet are included as are the designs
Fewer machine stitches
Fewer embroidery designs. Some are the same as the 15000 and there are some that are completing new. 

Basically the machine doesn't have wifi or any of the Acufil accessories

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!

Re: lost spring

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.
