Re: Updates for 15000

Sue Raabe <susies.stitches@...>
 

I checked again, and I have one (the largest) with the inner hoop, which came with the 15000, and 2 without them.  I never used them so I didn't misplace them.  I'll contact my dealer and ask him how to handle it.  If he charges me, I'll only replace one.  I finally have everything for the 12000 together and ready to box up, so it's ready when I find a buyer.  I seem to be missing the bar that goes on the back of the machine when the embroidery unit isn't attached, so as soon as I can get a price to replace it, I'll deduct from the selling price.  I'm tired of losing things, replacing them, and then finding them again.  I'm sure it will turn up somewhere after I sell it, but at this point, it's not about the money.  It's a matter of finally advertising the 12000, and getting it out of the house. The 5 thread spool stand was in the box with my 12000.  It was a floor model, and may have been on there.  Since it didn't come with the 15000 either, I'll keep it.

Does anyone what websites have discounts on Jenny Haskins stabilizer and thread?  I received quite a bit of each with the 15000, and plan to sell it for less than the discounted price, but first I have to find out what that is!  I'd like to use whatever I get towards paying off the 15000.  I'm not trying to advertise it here; I was just hoping to avoid a tedious search to find it.  I'm hoping someone else may have some suggestions :-)  Sue

I can't see any reason for the clothsetter. I have had a 12000 since they first came out and I have done lots of embroidery and never had it go wrong by using the screen on the machine. It seems an extra unneeded expense to me and something else to be in the way.

Yes, the blue dot bobbin case came out before the 12000. It was brought out about the time the Horizon 7700 was launched, if my memory serves me correct. It can be used quite safely in your 12000, 15000, Skyline series and the other quilting machines that have a threader cutter. Jim, if I’m wrong will you please correct me. The blue dot bobbin case has a lower tension which is better for quilting, the yellow dot that comes with embroidery machines starting at the 12000 is for embroidery as it is a great tension to pull the needle thread under the embroidery to eliminate the bobbin thread from showing on top; then there is the red dot which is the standard bobbin case. The red dot, standard bobbin case sometimes works for everything - you need to test your sewing to see what works best for you. I think that the blue dot bobbin case is not included with all machines, so it may not have come with your machine, but you can purchase it from your dealer.

Acid easing and Dropbox

Robyn Bacchi
 

Any suggestions on how to get AcuDesign to import designs from Dropbox?  I have designs saved to Dropbox and Dropbox enabled in the app but it won't show the designs.


[As told to me by the monks in a cave high in the Himalayas:]

AcuDesign will only see designs that are in its specific folder. After opening your Drobox folder, open the "Apps" folder, then "Artistic". Put your designs in there. Note that if you save designs to Dropbox from AcuDesign it will insist on putting them in this same Artistic folder BUT also inside EmbF, which is inside EMB. These are the folders used by the 11000 for USB storage and AcuDesign seems to think that's required. It isn't.


Re: New universal clothsetter for Janome machines

Yes and no.  I already have one.  They basically took the base for the  clothsetter for the 12000/15000 and added a new set of holes down along one side.  You put in place a different mounting bracket through the holes and calibrate it with the 500e by tweaking the plates under the mounting plate.  Since the plates are in different places, in theory, you can use it for any of the hoops.  But the reality is that because the 500e mounting bracket is not flush to the surface and requires the pins to stick up, the pins are in the way if you want to use the clothsetter for the most of the hoops.  Only the RE18 and SQ14 hoops will clear the 500E bracket.  So to use it for the larger hoops means constantly having to take the 500E bracket on and off (and recalibrating it).

If you look closely at the link, one picture has the vertical pins for the 500e mounting bracket  oriented to the outside of the screws at the outer edge of the base.  But the second picture with the actual 500e hoop attached has the pins to the inside of the screws.  The latter is the correct placement for the center of the 500e hoops to line up with the clothsetter arm and puts he pins in the way for most of the 12000/15000 hoops.

Needless to say, given the amount of space the things take, I was less than thrilled at discovering this actual lack of hoop versatility.  Someone got lost in translation between design and marketing.

Re: Updates for 15000

Okay, so now I have a new jump drive, and tried to download it and put it in my machine like it said, holding down the two buttons when I turned it on, and all I get is an error message.  It is a new 2.0 drive and I put it in the machine first, then formatted it in my computer, have done it twice now, and still get an error message in my machine.
Has anyone else has that happen to them?  
I have unzipped the file as per all the instructions, I even printed them out so I would not miss a step. 
Then I copied the unzipped file to the jump drive.
Don't know what else I could have done wrong.  Any suggestions?
Darlene

[When nothing else works, read the instructions.]
Unzipping the files and copying them to the jump drive will not work. The instructions call for you to double click the update app, then use it to prepare the jump drive. You can find these instructions as a PDF in the contents of the zip, but they are also here:

Free motion quilting

Sherryl Doran
 

I am doing some fm quilting and had noted from something I saw on the internet from Janome that one should use the "blue" bobbin case for this. However, I have the card that was on the bobbin case package and it says it is to be used only on the 11000 model and a couple of other models, not for the 12000. Could this be because the 12000 had not come out yet when this bobbin case was produced? Is it safe for me to use this case in my 12000? Thanks, Sherryl


Re: Updates for 15000

Anne Parker
 

I know Jim has said all embroidery hoops are 2 parts, but the ASQ22 hoop is not.  It just has magnetic clamps for clamping a quilt to it plus a firmer than usual template for placing your quilt under.

I've never actually used it, but have looked in the manual. See page 4 of the manual also shown on page 110 and the long magnetic clamps that are used to hold a quilt for using the accuquilt system - see page 144 on how to use the hoop.  It specificaly states there that there is no inner hoop.

'There is no inner hoop but the quilt layers are held in the
hoop by means of the magnetic clamps'

Jim is right.  Always do the update.  If you read the information  it always
 gives what the updates are to correct and they usually add "to correct other underlying corrections" or something like that.

If I have Janome 15000 version 2, do I still need to update to version 2.11? Or are these just updates for the Janome 15000 only? I am so confused. Sent from my iPad

[Confusion is one of the more populated states in the lower 48.]
Version 2.11 was created for compatibility with the Embroidery Couching foot and the AcuSetter app. If you aren't using those then you don't NEED it. Usually it's best to update when they come out with new versions, though, because Janome doesn't usually tell us what bugs may have been fixed in a release.

Re: Question about embroidery on tee shirts

Anne Parker
 

Last Christmas was my first attempt at T-shirts.  I tried several things on an old T-shirt of my husbands first.

What worked for me was marking the centre of the design where I wanted it to go on the T-shirt with a cross using a frixion pen (that is removed with heat).  Hooping just cut away stabalizer and marking the centre of the hoop, using the template, with a cross.  Then using pins to line up the centre and arms of the cross on the T-shirt with the cross on the stabilizer and pining the T-shirt to the stabilizer all around the area to be stitched.

For the stitchout I used a 'design' I created for basting first - this follows the same path the automatic one my 15000 would do but is at a tighter tension so holds the T-shirt fabric better.  I left the pins in and only removed when the machine was getting near them.  I didn't use startch, but only because I didn't think of it!  I didn't use spray adhesive because I don't like the idea.  Both T-shirts for my step-son and son-in-law turned out great.  I also stitched out using a slow speed - think it may have been the slowest - as the designs were quite dense.

Yes I do fuse it first.  I try not to make it to much bigger than the design because it is almost impossible to remove.  I wish I had known about this years ago.

Pellon feathrweight fusible - as I understand it, 1) you fuse the Pellon to the shirt, 2) hoop only the nylon mesh, then 3) baste the shirt to the mesh?

Updates for 15000

susies.stitches@...
 

I know this has been covered before, but I finally decided it was time to download and install any updates available.  If someone can tell me when it was posted, I'll go look it up.  I thought I read somewhere that the version I have is 2.0, but when I searched for how to install the updates, it was to 1.04.  Are they 2 separate things, and if so,what should I install and how?  I know if I had done it when everyone was discussing it, I wouldn't have to ask for help after the fact.  I do try to find the information before I write in, but sometimes I spend hours trying.

One more question, please?  Is the largest hoop just one piece, or should there be an inner part to hold the fabric?  For some reason I have 3,and none of them the inside hoop.I see the magnets on it, but don't know how they work.  Sorry for not remembering to do the updates when they were first discussed.  Thanks so much:-)  Sue 

[The following information is an update to update information already updated. Please update]
The last MC15000 update is version 2.11, available here:
You will also want to update your HorizonLink Suite:

All embroidery hoops are two parts, an inner and outer ring. They ship with the inner ring "nested" inside the outer, so you may just have to pop them out. Loosen the screw slightly and they should slip apart easily. If the inner rings are truly missing take all the hoops back to your dealer for replacement. The inner rings are not sold separately and if the machine was a demo from a show the dealer should be able to get them replaced at no cost.


Re: Question about embroidery on tee shirts

Cheryl Paul
 

If you don’t want to hoop your t-shirt, use some 505 or KK2000 spray adhesive to make sure that the t-shirt is tight against the stabilizer - then do the basting stitch around the design. You may need to use an additional stabilizer floated under the design. I have also used fusi-knit ironed on to where the design will go. It doesn’t show through usually. I wouldn’t use white under black or dark fabric or black under a light. The interfacing just adds another stabilizer to the fabric.
