Some days I wonder about myself. When doing a recent embroidery project I decided I didn't like the 5-spool holder when hooked onto the back of my 15000. I had to stand to change the thread and couldn't watch the thread as it left the cone.
This was my solution. It is unfortunate that Rube Goldberg seems to visit me. Often... :-)

I set the 5-spool holder on the right side of the machine, extended its antenna completely, used the auxiliary spool holder on the machine and attached a large paper clip to it with a 1" clip. Now the thread feeds smoothly from the cone up through the thread guide on the antenna, through the paper clip, then thru the machine.

Now to work on the spacing for my letters on this embroidery...

Pat, I do something similar but I clip the binding clip on the back of the horizontal spool holder and run the thread through the arms of the clip.

I never thought about that Cas. I can leave it attached to the 11000 because the embroidery unit is permanent, but my elna 900 sits on an open table so I could leave it there if I wanted too.

I am going to use the 11000 for piecing until it decides to permanently not turn on like it does now but only occasionally.

I have my machine (15000) set to automatically come on to 9.0….and I have a quarter inch foot that helps.

My challenge with the patchwork setting is that I constantly need to reset it when sewing a series of blocks the same size. It ends up short…

Judy, call Janome. Every update that I ever got for my machine when the dealer put it in, Janome paid them. Now I don't have your 15000, I have an 11000 and have no intentions to update it or now even use it. I bought 2 Tajima machines and would just love to sell my 11000, since I won't be using it. Nothing is wrong with it, I just love the industrail ones and have plenty of other machines to use to sew.  But, if I was you, I'd call Janome about it

Same here Darlene.  I decided it doesn’t bother me if my quilt blocks are slightly smaller as long as they are all slightly smaller the same amount  so they match up.  I compensate by cutting my fabric with the line on the ruler on TOP of the fabric, there’s my scant thread width.  There is still ¼” to trim or use as seam allowance.

 

You can also use the straight stitch foot with the needle in the center position and Utility or Quilt stitch #1.  You just have to use the edge of the foot or an added guide to judge your ¼”  I have a little magnet metal guide I place where I want if I do it that way.  If you use the dual feed foot the VD right edge is exactly ¼”.  So you can use it as a guide and run the fabric just slightly inside that edge.  If you use F foot, the inside of the right toe is ¼”..

 

I’m waiting to hear how people like the upgrade package.  It doesn’t seem to me like we will be able to move the needle over with that either.
