Carolyn,
Yikes!  There are always so many postings about people sewing through fingers, cutting off parts of fingers, etc.  We always think we're being careful and that it won't happen to us!  Very sorry to hear of your pain and hope you heal soon.  Hopefully, you didn't permanently damage either the machine or your finger!

Jim - Ruler Foot MC12000 - Part numbers

juliadlf1 <no_reply@...>
 

Jim: I know you posted about this awhile ago and now I can not get the search to show the information you posted for the part numbers. I know that Janome does not recommend using this foot because of the automatic presser foot but I did watch a YouTube video where someone had shown what the issue is.

Can you either provide the numbers for the foot and attachment part I would need for the 12000 or a link to the post that has the info? Much appreciated.

Seizing another opportunity for shameless self-promotion, Jim says:

Consulting the FootBook app we see that the part number for the Free Motion Frame Quilting Set is 767434005. You also need the QB-S Convertible Free Motion Foot part number 202146001. With regard to the aforementioned YouTube video (https://youtu.be/ZCnXlwvgznk), you should turn off the pivot option, which raises the foot whenever you stop. The thickness of the ruler foot is such that if the needle is down and the foot comes up, it will collide with the needle bar. That's likely to cause damage, which will not be covered under the Janome warranty. Because of the Janome does not recommend using this foot with the Skyline S7, the 12000 or the 15000. However you can safely use the foot with these machines as long as you do not raise the presser foot while the needle is down. Keep in mind that the pivot option will do this automatically, so turn it off!


servicing my 15000

Brought my 15000 in for servicing Tuesday. Was due for two year check up but had to take it in for a sewing issue. Now I bought the machine because it was a strong working machine suitable for home deco. They did not tell me it would not sew through fingers. Yep that is what it attempted to do. Finger got caught as I was clearing a piece of felt while embroidering a design. Took me about 15 minutes to
clear my finger from needle and embroidery foot.

Thankful I was not more seriously injured

Donna,


I asked that same question yesterday. You need to “Export” your file to get the option of JEF and all the others as well. You will find this in the “OUTPUT” on the left side of the screen.

I see the comment re waxed paper - costco, (and probably restaurant supply houses) sells a box of 500 sheets of 10" x 10.75" lightly waxed paper. It's about the size of a Kleenex box! I use it in the kitchen all the time. (I wad a sheet so I can shape to cover food in the micro)


I'll try using these sheets if I get wrinkles in the stabilizer...


Thanks to everyone for all the great ideas!

Thank you.


birds nest on bottom

Hi Jim


Having birds nest on the bottom of my project when stitching over multiple layers, I'm using a denim needle and even changed to the yellow bobbin case and still having the same thing happen. Are you able to see the attachment? Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Noting that it's spring, which is normally when birds are nesting, Jim says:

It's really hard to see anything from the picture, but if it's a dense design you may need a smaller needle. Changing to the yellow dot case won't really make much difference, because it increases the bottom tension. Your problem is either insufficient top tension, or more likely too big of a needle hole. If the design stitches fine over a single layer, then you may just need to slow down the machine at the trouble spots on multiple layers. Also make sure your fabric is taut within the hoop and well stabilized.

How about pressing it between some Teflon iron sheets?

I'd suggest sandwiching the vilene between layers of a press cloth, brown paper or baking parchment.  Use fairly low heat and ZERO steam.

Good luck.

What if you woke up tomorrow and only had what you thanked God for today?

I find waxed paper invaluable for reheating food in the microwave.

Could you try a small piece between layers of a brown bag to see if that will help?   Just a thought...

Go to File, top left of the screen, on the drop down menu scroll down to Export, when the dialogue box opens select Jef from the list of stitch formats. Make sure you have picked a folderto save it to or an external drie like a |USB.

I created a small lettering project and it saved to EMB and then to JPX.  My 15000 can't find the file.  How do I save as Jef with this new software?

TIA
