I have the 15000 and use my 2200 hoop to free motion a design on my machine. I recently did a queen king size but had to go and manually cut threads from back and front some were as much as 1/2 inch long. It drives me crazy its a lot of extra work. How or can I get it to automatically cut thread short. Have tried settings.Please advise Vickie iin Ohio

MBX Software

Hello


Unfortunately I am going to have to sell my Janome 12000 and was wondering, can I sell the MBX Software if I have opened it and used it a few times?


Thanks

It depends on which MBX software you have. Version 4.5 and earlier all use a hardware dongle, so as long as the dongle goes with the software everyone wins. However version 5 uses a software protection scheme that limits the number of installations to 2. If you have already used those, then a buyer of the package would not be able to use it. For V5 I would suggest you review the license for the software to see if Wilcom even allows it to be sold. If it does, then the number of installations should be reset for the new owner and that will require you to go through Janome to get to Wilcom. This will not be a simple process.

This has happened to me a few times until I realized that the bobbin wasn't pushed down enough. Now that I make sure that it is pushed all the way down ,I've never had the problem .

Not to be a pest, but is it possible to have it appear top to bottom instead of sideways?  I really don't want to have to print it out to read it and have no comfortable place to lie down near my computer screen :) I'm using Adobe but also have LibreOffice installed.

It was actually formatted for iPad, but I have uploaded a rotated version as "SidewaysBobbinWinder.pdf". Please, everyone,  do not post asking what a sideways bobbin is - that's just the name of the document! I'm not posting a link, because Yahoo hasn't made it available yet, and the link wouldn't work anyway. Watch for the email announcing the document and click the link it contains.

Humm this link won't work for me.

I always forget that copying and pasting a link from the Files page seldom works. Thanks Yahoo! Try this one:


If that doesn't work just go to the group files page. It's the first one listed.


ASQ 22 HOOP

susies.stitches@...
 

I was organizing my hoops, and making sure I had the right hoops for both the 12000 and the 15000 before I sell the 12000.  I checked the manual, and there's supposedly a hoop ASQ 22, but I didn't see it, so I looked online.  The only one I found was part of the the AcuFill kit, which I don't have.  Is it included as just a hoop with the 15000?  I thought I had all my ducks in a row, but now I'm not sure.  Sometimes I wonder if I invent things to lose! Since it doesn't seem to come with the 12000, there's no rush to find it; I just thought I had finally found or replaced everything that was missing.  If it's not included in the 15000, I'm not going to worry about it; I'll just use a different hoop. It seems like the included items change somewhat, and the websites aren't always up to date.  Thanks. 

ASQ22 is included with the 15000, but is optional with the 12000 where it is sold as part of the AcuFil kit. The "A" in the number is for AcuFil. ASQ22 comes with 8 magnets for holding the quilt in place.

Re: Thread wrapped around bobbin holder.

I have a PDF that Diane made on winding a bobbin ..  in 2012 so don't know if it is still on their site.

She fed the thread through the hole on the flat edge from the inside (the side that will hold the thread) going out..
Then took the thread down through the center hole (you would put over the bobbin post).
Hold the thread as you put it onto the post and it secures it very well, making the thread go onto the bobbin.
Hope I typed that well enough to make sense. Zoe

We were able to find the PDF in the attic, buried in an old cigar box with an "I Like Ike" button. I also found my long lost secret decoder ring and finally found out that the coded message on the cereal box said "Eat more wheat honeys - your pal, Buffalo Bee". There was an autographed picture of Captain Kangaroo, too, but it crumbled when I touched it. Anyway the PDF is now available for download in our "Files" section:

It happens to me and after reading Jim's solution, I tried it. I could not move the disc and didn't force it for fear I'd break it.  I have to guide the thread, too. I haven't had this problem with other separate bobbin motor machines.

Thanks! I have a copy on the computer so I can reference it quickly. Anything I access frequently I print and keep in a folder for quicker reference. Sue

This happened to me last year.  I ended up using a small sissors and a pair of tweezers to snip and then unwind a bit of thread at a time as I just couldn't find the end once I'd unwound all that came off easily. 

I was very careful not to cut tiny bits so it woudn't drop down inside (if that's possible) in the gap in the casing and unwound every bit that I cut until eventually it was all clear.

I haven't had any issues with it since I did this and now make a point of watching carefully where the thread is winding.  Still don't really know why it happened, but I was thankful that I always wind on slow speed so there wasn't as much thread as there could have been round the spindle!

‎That's how I am, too...and techie, as well. Before the previously owned 11000 was e shipped, I had read through the manual several times. Same with the 15000. I don't claim proficiency, but I am visual enough and have a good enough memory to remember 'I saw it...somewhere' LOL. I do love that you can usually get a manual online, even if you don't have the machine. I have manuals for lots of machines I will never own and/or that belong to friends I was helping to figure something out. 

I will probably get the app, but so far, I have found the book to have the information I need, and I can search...yay!

Re: Trace and Baste Function

Sue Raabe <susies.stitches@...>
 

Have the app; is the basting stitch a sewing "design"? I''be mostly used the embroidery tutorials so far, and would have no idea where to look for a basting stitch. Or did I completely misunderstand, and it has to be created? If so, I'll just stitch it a second time. I'm not good at creating things! Sue

See "Trace and baste" on page 122 of the instruction book. That should get you started.

I'm techy too - and find the manual excellent.  Jim and Dianes app is great and a good addition if you want to see things demonstrated and to reinforce your learning, but the manual is also great and describes things in what I find a logical sequence.

I actually went through the manual - probably about 4 times - before I got the machine.  This had 2 benefits.  It means you know what the machine can do and if it is actually the machine you want to spend your hard earned pennies on, but also that you are ready to go with it from day one and enjoy yourself experimenting.

I had never had an embroidery machine before (though have sewn on all sorts, learniing to sew on a vibrating shuttle 1895 Singer 28k at age 8).  It was a new experience for me, and one which I found so enjoyable because I knew what the machine was supposed to do.  I find reading a manual for anything means I know what it can do and how it should do things - so even if I don't know the exact page I know what is in the manual somewhere - and with a pdf search it is so easy to go to just the right place to find the info that you need!!

Thread wrapped around bobbin holder.

Marilyn Fleming
 

Hi all. Im sure someone can tell me how to get the thread from under the bobbin winder,l have unwound as much as I can , now it won't budge at all. What can I do?

 Sure would like some help. 

Thanks 

Marilyn


If you have the 15000 you can pull the cutting disc up away from the cover to give you more room to remove the thread. Be sure to push it back when you finish.
