I have been considering the acudesign...but will hold off and see if the New App is similar and be what I need instead! Sent from my iPhone

Will this mysterious wonderment be applicable to the 12000 also?

[Briefly stepping out of the lab, he speaks...]
The initial version will apply to the 12000, 14000, and 15000. We will then start adapting it to other models. Excuse me, I must now get back to work!

You’ll really like either one of those machines for just general sewing. I get to work on both of them periodically when we have models available at the shop. I’m waiting to see what’s coming out to replace some of the lower end models such as the 3160.

Hi everyone! I wanted to bid you all a fond farewell. I have had the Janome 15000 as a loaner from Janome America, and I am going to be returning it to Janome and sewing on the 9400 (or 8900) since I really am not an embroidery person. I’ve really enjoyed being here, but since I won’t have the machine, doesn’t make sense to hang around.

Jim, THANK YOU for everything! Your tutorial videos/DVDs and FootBook are simply awesome! I hope to cross paths with you somewhere. I’ve enjoyed meeting all of you, learning from all of you, and hope we meet elsewhere—on the internet or in person.

Cheers, Sarah

I had to take a break from sewing for a few days but will check tomorrow.     I do have a class scheduled in Thursday and if it is still a problem I'll have them look as well.

Very frustrating.

Linda, maybe Jim can weigh in but if you have the cover plate on correctly and the little brush is on the underside of the plate when you thread the machine, I do not think this can happen.  Have you examined the cover plate to make sure it installed correctly and not broken in any way?

Jim,
Did I hear you say NEW iPad app??? 
Do tell.
Deb in CA

[Shhhh! It's still under wraps!]
We've been working on it for nearly a year, starting with a very simple idea that has morphed into a very large project. So large that I've spent the past week just refining the graphics and Diane has been working on video for more than a month. Stay tuned!


New App

guequies@...
 

Jim,


I have no idea what your new app is but your teasers are really getting me excited.  I can't wait to buy it whatever it is.  Any idea of when it will be released?


Sherry


[What's App?]

We're in alpha testing now, which is basically where we look for show-stopping bugs. I'm hopeful that we'll be in beta testing by next week, and submission to the App Store by month end. Apple will be announcing the release of iOS 10 tomorrow, which will lead to a flood of apps hitting the store for approval, so that could delay things. This is probably the biggest app I've ever written, including my pre-sewing days from 1978 to 1990. Stay tuned.

If you go to Safari, you can find a free program called Airstitch to download.  You cN send your file there, then convert them and send them back where you want them.

Good Morning Jim Diane,


I saved some files to Dropbox yesterday to open in AcuDesign.  I think the problem is that I sent the to a USB from Digitizer V5 and they saved as JPX JBX files - am I correct in my assumption.

Thank you.

[Technology marches on (us) with heavy boots!]

The problem is that as machines get more and more capable Janome needs more data in the design file. Consider the original SEW format, which was severely constrained by colors, size and stitch count. JEF fixed that, but they the 11000 needed more data so that spawned JEF+. Then came the 12000 which added JPX. (Aside - JBX is actually just a thumbnail image used by the machine itself, so it can be ignored.)


Brother has the same problem, which they solved with PES by making different versions. That creates a different problem for people who have what appears to be a valid PES file, but it won't open in their software that doesn't support that version.


Adding JPX to AcuDesign would be done by Wings Software, who modified their DRAWings SNAP app for Janome. However they won't do it without being paid, so it falls on Janome to make the call. I don't really know whether Janome has a lot of AcuDesign users, so I don't know whether a lot of user feedback would accomplish anything. I truly hope that lots of people are using iPads because we have invested a LOT (Huuuuuuuuuuugggggge in Trump-speak) amount of time on a new iPad app! For now I would address this with Liz of the Janome Life blog. She's highly regarded by Janome and could have some influence.

Re: Acu Design or Embird?

Estelle Torpy
 

Hi Jenny,

I have found the app Acu Edit to work well for bringing in a design and adding lettering from one of the built-in alphabets, then transferring wirelessly to the 15000.
 
For more than that I have Embrilliance which costs more but does a lot more and like Embird comes in modules so you buy what you want from basic to full out digitizing.

I have Embrilliance on both my Mac desktop and PC laptop and I use a thumb drive to transfer designs to the 15000.

Using software is a personal choice since they all are a little different and have a learning curve. Fortunately these days, there are a lot of youtube videos that help show you how to do things that sometimes the manual doesn’t quite explain.

Good luck and happy embroidering,

Estelle

Acu Design or Embird?

Jenny Warren
 

Hi!


I am looking for software which can cut, edit and manipulate embroidery designs. Many of the ladies in the sewing group I go to use Embird, and are very happy with it.  None of them have tried Acu Design, which is cheaper. I have seen Jim and Diane's videos on the My15000 App, and am tempted to buy this software.  Any advice as to its limitations?


Thanks,


Jenny.


Re: Backstitching problem

blue_lak <no_reply@...>
 

If it sews well with Accuflex, then try increasing foot pressure a lot and decrease thread tension with your regular foot. The Accuflex is physically moving both layers but the regular foot sometimes needs more foot pressure to keep the layers moving. 
Also check to be sure you are using the red dot bobbin case, and the same weight thread as top one. The yellow case has much more thread tension for the lighter weight embroidery thread.

Janome 15000 AcuEdit program

darlene Reese
 

Today I got a new update for the AcuEdit program.  It will not let name target my sewing machine.  I can transfer designs but it will not show my target machine, and no longer shows all the designs on my AcuEdit that are in my machine.  Has anyone else had this problem?  When I go to the AcuDesign program, it still shows a target machine and I can upload and download from there.  It just seems to have happened when they updated the AcuEdit program a pond I cannot find any information on the Internet. 

Any help would be appreciated. 

Thanks 

Darlene


[Sometimes updates are downgrades.]

I've had this problem on previous updates to AcuEdit, although not with this one. There are two options to try:


1. Double tap the HOME button. Find AcuEdit and swipe UP to terminate it. Then open it and try again.


2. If that fails try powering off the iPad and powering it back up again.

If you have "resume" set in your setting, the machine will back up a bit before the thread break so you won't have a gap in the stitches.  This feature started with the 11000SE (including upgraded 11K machines).

I don't have the 12K but feel sure that option is available under the embroidery settings.  And, yes, the resume function is on the 15K also.  HTH  Dottie in Texas
