Check  it out here and go to the bottom of the page and choose 220mm by 220mm hoop.  It will show it's for the 12,000, 14,000, and 15,000 with the acufil hoop.

I think you mean the DIME (Designs in Machine Embroidery) hoop topper? The answer is no. It is only for the ASQ22 hoop, not the SQ23 hoop. The ASQ22 (Acufil Square) is a one part hoop with a metal rim and 8 magnetic clamps that hold the fabric onto the hoop. The new DIME Hoop Tooper doesn't use those 8 magnetic clamps. It consists of a plastic frame and 12 magnets that hold the fabric onto the ASQ22 hoop.

Embrilliance Software makes a Density Repair Kit for this very problem. You can download a demo version here to try it out, though the demo does not save the repaired design. At least it will give you an idea how it works. For more information see this page.

 


 


Updated MC12000 to use RE18 Hoop

lisawelch52@...
 

Need some assistance, please.

I purchased the new RE18 Hoop and to use it I have:

1. updated my MC12000 

2. updated my Digitizer MBX software to V4.0M

3. downloaded the Horizon Link V1.20 but need the install disk to complete it and I'm away from home to have internet access. I will finish installation when I get home. 

All that to explain what I've done so far to be able to use the RE18 Hoop.  Of course the update on my MC12000 recognizes the RE18 Hoop, but the update on the MBX software does not and I really need it to.  From reading about all the updates, I think I've chosen the correct ones but apparently I'm missing something.  I would sure appreciate any advice.


Thanks, Lisa


Item 2 says you are using MBX V4.0M, but the latest update to 4.0 is MBX 4.0V. You can get that update here: http://www.janome.co.jp/e/e_downloads/digitizer_mbx_v40v.html

Re: DIME Snap Hoops

I have the DIME Hoop Topper which fits on the ASQ22 hoop. It consists of a plastic frame and 12 very strong magnets that take the place of the magnets that come with the ASQ hoop. I used the hoop to make an embroidered project the other day and it works very well. Also DIME has made a Monster Hoop for the Janome 500E machine.

I've been told by my local Brother Dealer that DIME does make a 5 X 7 magnetice hook for the MC15000.. Been waiting 5 months to get it, so I'm beginning to doubt her just a bit!

The ruler foot parts Jim has given part numbers for works great in the 15000.  I use in for FMQ as well.  It works better for me than the PD-H foot.

My friend has a Bernina and bought the one for her machine plus the Edge to Edge quilting software and is quilting her on tops like crazy.  She says the line up of the designs is easy and she can do a whole quilt in a couple of hours.
 
Also, while I was at the quilt show in Paducah, I heard that Janome was making a new ruler foot for the 15000 because they don't recommend us using the one we currently have.  Has anyone heard any more on this?

I have the Janice Quilt Topper. It is made of flimsy plastic. The magnets are quite strong. It is okay, but I am not really impressed. I had hoped they would have made a snap hoop for the MC15000, but they said they have no plans for it.

Don't forget the Accessory catalog, available to download (free) from Janome's websites (I found it easily on Global.  http://www.janome.co.jp/e1.htmI   
Just click  on the word Accessories (left side of the page).  I've saved mine to iBooks on my iPad.

Janome America (janome.com) can get to a multi-page list of accessories that will fit the 15000, although I found the catalog from Global to be far superior when looking to see if there was anything else I might need.  Tee hee.

If you've downloaded the Sewing Machine Accessories PDF previously, the current version seems to be updated with more 15000-specific items.  

I had purchased the pintuck foot and it's pintuck cord guide.  Unfortunately the guide didn't fit the 15000. I've now printed just that page from the newer catalog and will take it to my dealer next time I go in so I can get the cord guide that will fit the 15000. 😊

Enjoy!

DIME Snap Hoops

J Fraker
 

Correction.  I just looked at their website and they now have something called the Janome Quilt Topper that is supposed to work with the Accufil hoop.  Not sure how it works, but maybe it is the same principle.


Re: DIME Embroidery Snap Hoops and ? of New Ruler foot

J Fraker
 

No.  I contacted them and asked if they were planning to make one that fits Janome machines and they said no.  I think it is because of where the hoop attaches on the Janome.  All the others attach to the left.

Re: JANOME RULER FOOT

Thank you Jim. Now to go in an argue with my dealer.  I had the correct numbers to begin with and they said no, the one the sold was correct--

Thanks again, don't know what we'd do without you.

JANOME RULER FOOT

Barbara Romanufa
 

I finally got into ruler quilting after borrowing a Westalee foot from a friend.  I decided I enjoyed it enough to buy the Janome foot.  I have the Janome 15000 and the Skyline 7. Jim stated in the foot book I need the QB-s Convertible Free Motion Foot, Part #767434005 and also the convertible Free motion foot No. 202146001..  My dealer knew nothing about those numbers exactly but sold me the Free Motion Frame quilting set 767434005 and the Convertible Free Motion Quilting Foot Set no. 202-001-003.  I live in Canada and thought maybe the numbers were different so I'd give it a try.

The foot works fine when I put it on and quilt, turning off the automatic foot lifter, etc.  But when I turn the machine off and then come back to it, it won't run and comes up with a message, Lift Presser Foot and turn machine back one.  The presser foot is lifted and I can't do anything.  This message is the same on both machines.  I took the foot off and the machine runs fine..  Just wondering if anyone has had this problem, and what the solution was.

Thanks to all, Barbara

Your dealer sold you the wrong foot. You have the QB-H Convertible Free Motion foot set. Because of the way it is designed it does not allow the presser foot lifter to get the foot as high as it should be, hence the message. Note that the part numbers in FootBook are the same, but without the intervening hyphens. Janome's ordering system does not use the hyphens, which is why I omit them. You need part #202-146-001, which should have QB-S stamped on the side. The frame quilting set he sold you use correct. It's also the only one of its kind, at least so far.



Acudesign and/or Embrilliance

Ceil J
 

Hi.  I have Acudesign and the My15000 app that will teach me how to use it.  But I usually work on my PC (in future it will be a Mac) and wonder if Embrilliance Essentials would be a better choice.  I just want to merge and do some minor editing of designs at this point.  From looking at both, it seems that Embrilliance would be less complicated to use although I couldn't send my designs wirelessly to the machine but at this time all my purchased designs are on the PC.  However, I don't want to spend over $100 for Essentials if it's really a duplicate of Acudesign and I just need the commitment to learn Acudesign.  Any thoughts?

Why not download the trial version of Embrilliance? That should help you decide.


Re: Info on Ver 1.20 Update

Cheryl Paul
 

I had the same reaction to that update install on my 12000. After I calmed down for the panic attack, I discovered that I needed to scroll to the next screen in the hoop setting - I believe it is at the bottom of your screen - like my Elna 860’s scroll place was. It’s the same one that you use to scroll forward for your designs, if my memory serves me correctly as I no longer have the 12000, but the 15000 instead which has moved some of the editing features to a different place on the screen. What you need to know is IF your machine shows the update - it is there.
