Is there a 17000 on the horizon?

JoAnn Novak
 

  I agree.  I use the 4x4 and the 5x7 the most.
  Why don't they listen to us????

Life's biggest decision is what you do with Jesus.

 

I just wish they would make a 4x4 hoop for the 15000.

Thanks gang.  Anyone know the general timeline of Janome TOL releases so we can calculate whether three years or so between models is their pattern?

Re: Memory Craft 500 E

The 500E looks very similar is style, but bigger than the 200E. In order to have bigger hoops, they had to have the arm or carriage go somewhere. The unfortunate part is that it cannot be removed. I suppose that being an embroidery only machine, they wanted it all in one unit. f it were in 2 parts, can you imagine taking it somewhere and forgetting the embroidery unit - you couldn’t even sew as all it does is one thing - embroider. I have a friend that purchased one at the end of last year and it is waiting for her to get home from Arizona. She has been looking for a carry bag, ever since then. I think she is going to use the styro-foam from the box and make something - at least that was the last conversation we had about this. I don’t think the machine is very heavy, just awkward to transport.

Upgrading the software on 15000

jamiestitcher62 <no_reply@...>
 

Hi, I've had the 15000 since it came out and have for the most part kept up with the updates on software.  Well I guess I didn't see the 2.10 which basically makes my 15000 version 1 into a version 2.  I did what the instructions said and I got the "red" screen.  Redid it a half a dozen times and still get the red screen which tells me it didn't take.  Not sure what to do now except take it to the shop.  Don't want to have to pay a bunch of money for something that should have been simple.  Any ideas anyone?  Thanks.


There is a point during the update where the screen turns red for a short time, even when it is successful. If you just turn it off as soon as you see the red screen you might be quitting too soon. Wait a minute or two, and if it's still red then you have a failure. A few people on this list have had problems with updating, some even requiring a new motherboard. In this case it's covered by the 5 year warranty on electronics, so it shouldn't cost you anything to get it fixed.

The 14,000 is no way near the 15,000.  The Elna does not have all of the hoops of the 15,000  nor does the 14,000.  If you choose the 15,000 is a much better choice of all 3.

Mac - Janome Programs

zena.mayberry@...
 

Hi Jim


I am finally considering changing to a Mac. Is the Switch to Mac pdf I found on the web dated 2011 still appropriate to follow or is there a newer way of using Windows programs on a Mac 


Thanks for your never ending support


Zena Mayberry


Thanks for the reminder to revisit the document. It's still mostly up to date, though I have made a few minor revisions. The methods discussed are still the best way to run Windows on a Mac.


Bobbin Loop

Meryl Margolies
 

This had happened a couple of times now, and I would love to be able to fix it.


If a design has (for lack of a better description) long satin stitches, my bobbin thread pulls up a loop on the right side of the stitch. As you can imagine, this is not acceptable and unattractive to the design. As I am not a digitizer, I can't imagine why someone would use a stitch that long as I would think it would catch on things. I also don't know how to tell in advance if this is going to occur. I've changed the fill and re-stitched the area, but that can get bulky.


Is it my bobbin tension? It seems okay the rest of the time. What can or should I do?


Feeling a bit loopy, Jim says:

Because of how Janome's machines are made, the longest possible stitch is 127 "points", which works out to 1.27cm or about half an inch. If a stitch needs to be longer than that one or more jump stitches will be inserted. That's where the trouble comes, because when the machine performs a jump it opens the tension disks to allow the thread to flow freely. The lack of tension at the end of this long stitch is what causes the loop.


Unfortunately there is nothing you can do to prevent this, because that's how the machine works. Good digitizing would avoid long satin stitches, because as you point out, they are easily torn.


Re: Memory Craft 500 E

Richard and Debra
 

I love the 500e and the way the hoops now attach!  The hoops are more stable and easier to attach.  I’m in the process now of using the largest hoop to put words and numbers on the back of t-shirts for softball, and the largest hoop is as easy to use as the small one!! 
 
To someone who said they’d like to see this type of hoop attachment on a combo machine – I believe it would have to be a removable arm in order to make that happen.  My “combo” is the 8900 along with the 500e – perfect for me!

Re: Stitch Composer

Josephine Symons <josymons@...>
 

Thank you for your 'composition' Jim!
I have been doing this but to no avail. It's very strange (and frustrating!) because it worked with a previous stitch. 
Jo

Would anyone know whether there is a version 1.2 for the Stitch Composer? I have Horizon Link 1.2 for my brand new 15,000 V2 machine but the Stitch Composer component is only version 1.0. Should it be 1.2 as I'm having an issue getting the machine to find my created stitch on the USB stick? Many thanks for any info. Jo


Composing himself, Jim says:
Stitch Composer is version 1.00, even though the 1.2 update was installed. You'll find the stitch design in the OrdF folder, which is itself inside the ORD folder.

I agree I was shocked when I saw the machine with the arm on the side.  I think they have always been on the back.

Pixey, I am really surprised that Janome did put the arm on the side this time.  All of their previous machine (I have had the 5700, 300E, the 11,000 and now the 12,000 all have the robotic arm to the back of the machine and I have loved that feature.  Obviously they did not ask for our input this time.

Hi Georgia,
I have a 500e as well and find it perfect for some applications.  That said, the way the arm sticks out at 90 degrees I can't imagine taking it on the road.  Which is why I kept my 350e.  
 
I'm dreading my first effort at oiling it.  All those locations and having to remove panels...may see if I can watch my dealer do it the first time.

Hi Bonnie.  Do you still have that Acufil kit?  I am interested in buying it if you do.  I'm guessing a money order would be the way to go???

Let me know.

Wondering if auto-correct has created an underwater hoop, Jim says:
Pricing for the AcuFil hoop and software package is going to vary greatly by dealer. Here's one online source that you can use as a starting point.

Actually, I’d like to see the hoop fastening mechanism that is on the 500e be incorporated into any upcoming combo models. It’s a lot more stable than the current method used on all other Janome machines.

I too, love my 15000 and wonder what more can there be. I’m here to tell you that there is probably quite a bit more, but we just haven’t thought of it. One being the digitizing on the machine, that Brother and BabyLock have - can’t say that interests me, or I’d own one of them too. There will be a new machine, because that is how companies keep in business. Folks like NEW, SHINY toys and if they don’t change something, we would never buy a new one, until something breaks that cannot be fixed. I’m hoping that there isn’t a new machine for at least another year. I’ve got to much other stuff to learn - i.e.: My Artistic SimpleCut Software, Digitizer MBX v5, Floriani Total Control U, and so much more on my 15000. That’s a lot of information to get my brain around so another new machine isn’t needed in my world, but I know that there will be one sooner or later.

Re: Nesting problems

Anne Parker
 

There are a couple of more detailed explanations of thread weight on the YLI site here - http://www.ylicorp.com/KnowledgeCenter.aspx

Marine thread (and hence industrial) numbering systems use a thread reference system opposite to domestic thread - the higher the number the thicker the thread - so it can be a real can of worms.

As long as you are comparing numbers in the same numbering system, and know whether a smaller or higher number is the thinest thread you can use any numbering system will work - though the 'universal' system is the Tex or deciTex, where the smaller the number the thinner the thread.

Re: Free Motion Couchimg Foot

Sandra King
 

Update: when my dealer quoted me the price, I said I was not going to pay that much for the foot as I knew I could get it cheaper elsewhere. Yesterday, they called and left a message that the foot was actually $39.99 and they had made a mistake quoting the price the day before. They lost a sale because I had already ordered it from somewhere else.

​Lucy,

I don't know for sure either, but they are discontinuing the 12000 and introducing the 14000 which  I just purchased and is almost a duplicate of the 15000, so I think they are trying to cut down on their inventory of these machines to make room for a newer model.

I can't get over what a grand machine these 9mm machines are.  I love the way it holds onto the thread between seams - no more nests at the beginning of the machine - and that is just a tiny feature in comparison to all the features it has. 

I have the 11000 also, and this new 14000 is head and shoulders above the 11000!
