That’s a good idea to check with the dealer.  Mine has 40% coupons right now.

The magnets aren't a connected part of the topper. The advantage of the Hoop Topper and it's magnets compared to the original ASQ hoop is that it keeps the fabric flat on the hoop, so it means you don't need a lot of excess fabric to accommodate the original magnets. How it works: layer the items in this order: ASQ hoop, fabric sandwich, or stabilized fabric, hoop topper, snap the magnets into the slots of the topper to securely hold the item to be embroidered onto the ASQ hoop. I purchased mine from a Janome dealer for less than the price quoted by someone in this message thread.

I forgot to mention.  I won’t buy anything from sewingmachinesplus again.  I bought an 11000SE from them and had horrible customer service.  I ended up selling the machine.

Try the sewing machines plus link.  The 15000's hoop is on sale ($39.99) through 7/10, and they had an additional 10% off.  When I looked, if you spent $49.99 shipping was free.   Otherwise, shipping for just that item, at least to my west coast address, was less than $5.

 

If you make your own, would you share the How To?

Quilt Hoop Topper

Cas <cas@...>
 

Thanks Pat,

 

Yes, I’ll share if/when I make one.  I bought heavy duty magnets on eBay, similar to these http://www.ebay.com/itm/10pcs-Super-Strong-Block-Magnets-20x10x4mm-Hole-4mm-Rare-Earth-Neodymium-N50-/181880934761?epid=852895210&hash=item2a58f2d169:g:zb4AAOSwHjNWA1LJ

That I’ve been using to hang quilts.  I do that by inserting them in pockets I’ve sewn to the back of the quilt and I have flush metal strips on my walls that are painted to match the walls.  But I digress….

 

I figure I can just make a frame of acrylic or wood and glue or screw the magnets to the top of it.  They are slim, and the last ones I bought have holes in the middle of them.

 

I would try it before I’d advise anyone here to do it though.  The magnets might be too strong and interfere with the embroidery.  They might want to pull toward the needle plate or something.  I have the smaller, weaker round ones that might work better, but they might not be strong enough.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/50-MAGNETS-13mm-X-4-cylinder-disk-STRONG-N42-Zinc-coated-Neodymium-US-SELLER/122556280675?_trksid=p2045573.c100508.m3226&_trkparms=aid%3D555014%26algo%3DPL.DEFAULT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D44941%26meid%3D9cdd01e00d424b12803085217a03d750%26pid%3D100508%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26

 

Can someone who has the hoop topper tell me how strong the magnetism is?  Does it pop right off, or does it take a bit of effort to pop it off?  I’ve wanted a snap hoop for so long and asked the DIME Rep at an event I went to if she would mail me when it became available for Janome.  Of course I wanted the great discount they got that day too!

 

I sewed the small round magnets in cloth strips to use as curtain tie backs and they sure stuck to the needle plate!  That’s an idea for any of you that have metal casing around your windows.  Long cloth ties with magnets sewn in them – you easily loop them around the drapes and they sitck to the window casing and to each other.  You have to sew cross sections in the cloth strip to keep the magnets separate.  Getting them sewn is challenging.  I’ll come up with a different idea next time. 

 

They also work great to take to hotels to make the curtains stay shut to keep the light out.

Re: Ghost Rider

Speaking of replacing a foot control when the electronics give out.

When my antique (ok, only 1974) Kenmore foot control quit, I pried it apart and noticed a lovely collection of capacitors, transistors, resistors. At least I have to "assume" that's what those colorful parts were. Since, at that time, my machine was so old (at least 30 by then) there weren't replacement parts available, but I lucked out and found an electronics repair person who replaced the errant parts and it worked perfectly. And his fee was ever so reasonable ($20!!!)

I loved that machine, but when I couldn't lower the feed dogs any more, I was forced (tee hee) to do a major upgrade to the 15000.

Just a thought if you have access to a true electronics whiz, and the budget is tight...

I haven't seen this question before so here goes...  When I let off of the foot pedal my 15000 sometimes continues to sew, sometime for a couple stitches and sometimes continues until I tap it.  Any helpful ideas?


Usually this is due to one of two things:

1. Dust or debris (dog & cat hair especially) has accumulated inside the foot control. Cleaning that out will fix the problem, but it's tricky to open with springs, etc. Also the screws are usually hidden under the rubber skid prevention pads on the bottom.


2. A capacitor inside the foot control has failed. It's not difficult to replace, but dealers will almost always want to replace the foot control. If it's out of warranty this can be pricey.


3. OK, I lied, there is one more possibility. Sometimes the plug in the machine that the foot control plugs into will break loose from the electronics board that it connects to. This can make the foot control unresponsive sometimes, as well as pop up messages with pictures of the foot control. Generally will not cause the machine to keep running, but I thought I should mention it.

I’m having trouble viewing the designs in a graphic.  I remember there was a way to view them and not the “D” or the flower but for the life of me, I can’t find the answer anywhere. 

I have the appropriate extension selected but still cannot see it.  I’m running on Windows 10, Digitizer V.  Can someone please help.  Thank you, Sharon

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
