Connie,

I go to the apps, select Patchwork.  I move the top setting to 9 and use the straight stitch plate and O foot.  This gives me an exact ¼”

I also change the lower setting because I think 1.8 is too tight, but maybe some people like their seams that tight.  I like 2.2 or 2.4 since I typically do a lot of seam ripping.

What is the preferred method for sewing accurate quarter inch seam allowance on the 15000?  I just purchased the Accuquilt cutting machine and I want to try out a few sample blocks.

I have a 14000 for a few months now.  Locke it, but feel like it's the red-headed step-child.  Very little information is available about our particular machine. 

With the exception of WiFi, the 14000 is feature-identical to the 15000. Our My 15000 app for iPad has 69 instructional videos, all but one of which would apply to the 14000:

I have the 11000 also and used the Cloth Guide on it - LOVED it!! This is the main reason I bought the elna when it came up for sale on SewItsForSale. The 11000 is starting to decide not to turn on every time. Bummer !!! I love it but not sure about if it is worth the price of repair. I bought it when they first came out.

I have the scan and cut however I have been using the accuquilt to cut applique for 3 baby quilts and it is not an easy task. You are limited to one cut at a time and if you want to iron fusible cutting one leaf or small piece is a real pain. With the scan and cut you have a 12x12 mat or 12x24 mat to cut numerous pieces. Given the choice the Brother Scan and cut is a much better choice and Brother offers a free on line software called Canvas.

Sorry read this wrong thought you were talking about the cutting machine that Janome sell in the USA and not in the UK. Have seen the Accuquilt on Create and craft seems a lovely machine but the investment in all those different size dies is quilt an outlay. Although I quilt I do not do alot so Scann cut seemed a better investment for me.

Connie,  I think you want to do the update and then you should have your solution.  Check with your dealer for details - hopefully they attended Janome Institute to have the latest information.

I have the brother scan n cut machine and use it for cutting out fabric for quilting often using the quilt block designs  built in.It is also great for cutting appliqué shapes. I do have the Janome 15000 machine. If I had a Brother embroidery machine my cutting machine can read their format of pes and would cut out the applique shapes needed for the design. Keep meaning to see if it would work if I convert a Jef design to a Pes and see if it would work. We do not sell the cutting machine you mention in the uk. The brother one does have a scanner built in which is very useful as can scan in my own designs... I love my 15000 and have been a Janome person since 1968 when my  first machine was a New Home , have been a sewing machine consultant  for them for many years. I still do free lance teaching on their machines and am also lucky to live only 15min from their uk headquarters.....Love hearing what is discussed on this forum....
Sue.

Thanks once again Jim for clearing the mud - I am so glad that I resisted that guy in Cleveland aren't you? 
My dealer reiterated all of the above when I was there this past Sat. Even better they said that Mary Carollo was going to come again for a free one-day workshop on all the apps and horizon link suite this coming Oct. she is GREAT!

Re: An update on The Update

Jim

Many thanks for all the info regarding the update.

Would you be able to clarify something for me though.  My machine is packed for moving and will shortly be taken 200 miles away to my step-daiughter for storage.  We are moving to an area in a different part of the country about 250 miles away from where we live and 300 miles away from my daughter.  My current local dealer was given a percentage of the price I paid at a show for the machine several years ago in order to be registered as my local dealer - but of course when we move they will be 250 miles away and no longer my local dealer. 

I'm sure there must be lots of other people with 15000s that have moved probably hundreds of miles away from their local dealer - so - in order to get the update they would need to go to a dealer that wasn't their original local one.  Are you saying that a new local dealer would not be able to install the update? And we would all need to travel to the orginal one.

I guess when it comes to it I have a machine that works fine, including the needle threader so I can just follow things up with my local dealer who will only be about 20 miles away - and I am in no rush for the update. :0)  If I get no joy I will contact Janome UK directly for their advice.

Thanks again for providing at least some clarification on these issues.

I can't really address how things work in the UK, because each country that Janome sells in has their own practices and customs. In the US, if you buy a machine at a show the local dealer gets nothing. This makes them at best dismissive and at worst openly hostile if/when the purchaser comes to their store seeking help or accessories. In a situation where the machine itself needs to have physical work done on it, this required parts will go to the selling dealer. Presumably a show purchaser could ship the machine to that dealer, though the "free" upgrade would incur substantial shipping fees. This is something Janome America will have to work through. Since Janome UK has a policy in place of sharing revenue from a show sale with the local dealer, I would assume they have thought about this. You may wish to contact them for advice.

Thanks so much for that info Jim 😊, yes it very well could have been a power sag as we live a long way down a rural valley where the electricity line is prone to dip a bit in power now & then 😣, I can live with that kind of glitch 👍🏻.
