Has anyone used Westlake rulers with 15000?
Thanks.

Use the + sign beside the number of stitches in the design on your screen to move to the first stitch – not the start button.  You can now use the arrows to move the hoop so the first stitch will align with the design.

I print out a template and tape it to the back of the plastic grid  template that goes with the hoop I am using.  I use my cloth setter and line it up perfectly using the paper template on the back of the grid

Hi Connie,

I would love to hear how others do this too.  

I have the 15000 and the Edge to Edge and have used it.  What I have to do is the following:

First I use the template to place the hoop to the spot.  Then I advance to the first stitch at the end of the last pattern.  If it is not "spot on", I back up the stitch to take the machine back to the home position.  When in the home position, you can use the jog key to move the needle left, right, up or down,  as many stitches as you think might work.  
Then I go to the first stitch of the pattern again and see if it is closer.  I can usually get it pretty darn close after two or three "adjustments."  

I would love to know how others do it.  There has to be a better way.  I am listening intently!  :-)

Re: Edge to edge quilting ( precise alignment)

I have the Janome 15000. Short answer. There is an editing screen that shows your design with the grid. Select the design and move it with the arrow keys below the grid.
For edge to edge quilting or continuous line embroidery, I hoop my project aligning by eyeball. I move the needle with the forward key to see if I am close. Then I go to the editing screen and move the design. It can take a few tries. But you can be very precise. You can rotate too if necessary. You will get faster and more accurate with practice.
There is also the tool with the iPad, that you take a picture of your hooped project and align your stitch out from the Accusetter app. I have that on my list of things to try.

Linda <lindamrobertson7@...>
 

Is there a product number / brand you would share?

I also need a good stabilizer for t-shirt and knit fabrics.  

I'm going to make a QAUG out of my grandsons old clothes - t-shirts, cotton, denim, jeans.     It will be s crazy/scrappy quit.    Any suggestions?

Over the years I have used Solvy, dissolving laundry bags ( circa 9000),  Badgemaster, and Vilene.

Badgemaster is a heavier Solvy -it is almost the thickness of a window covering plastic.   It works well for some things...  BUT it does have an element of stretch to it if your design is small compared to the hoop size.   For example; I was doing a Starbird FSL hummingbird sun catcher and each time I got to one area of the final satin stitch around it, my stitching would start to stall and loop. I was using my 15000 and the standard hoop with one layer of Badgemaster.   I was so sure it was the design so I tried it on my 11000 in the 4x4 hoop and it stitched perfectly.   So off I went with my 15000 and the Badgemaster, the design, the thread, the hoop to talk to my techie.  Well he was having the same problem but didn't think it was the tension because it was only that one area... well lo and behold we looked very carefully at the design as it was almost finished and we could see where that almost finished section was pulling on the stabilizer and that was throwing off the stitching.   So he suggested I use two layers if I wanted to use that hoop... or better yet, use two layers of Vilene because it wouldn't stretch.  

So lesson learned that Badgemaster the heavier Solvy will stretch when pulled by a column of satin stitches.  

I have used Vilene many times and I really do like it.  It is also called washaway stabilizer by, I think Floriani and Nancy's Notions as well as OESD.  I will hunt around to get the best price for the yardage length and the width of the roll.  It all will dissolve the same way.

Do a search on line for washaway stabilizer and you will get many hits... then price shop. In my experiences it is all the same stuff.

Anembroideredaffair.com sells this by the yard-59"wide, great rates and service.  She sells other types of stabilizers as well, has a Yahoo group, designs, etc. etc.  Worth checking into, Claire S.

Edge to edge quilting ( precise alignment)

Connie
 

I am finally getting around to trying the edge to edge quilting in the hoop technique as explained by Christine Connor her book.  

My first sample piece I used my Brother Innovis 5000 machine and it works pretty well. I even splurged for the Monster magnetic hoop to make rehooping easier. Switching to the janome 15000, how do you move the embroidery design to align the second row first stitch with the last stitch of first row?  On the Brother, once you advance the design to the first stitch and bring up bobbin thread as she instructs, you can no longer move the design  in any direction from the center of hoop. Help me please!

Wash Away Stabilizer

Mary A Rease <bigmary@...>
 

For years now I have used nothing by Vilene type water soluble, especially for FSL!! Often only one layer is needed. I sometimes add a second smaller piece if I think the design may be too heavy in certain spots.

The least expensive place I have found to purchase is from Carolyn at AnEmbroideredAffair Yahoo Group. She is normally the least expensive and I love the fact that she only charges exactly what it costs her to ship the item to you.
