Re: Accusketch app

Vicki,
The available stitching are of the GR hoop is the 9.05 by 11.81 default value.  The SQ22's available area is 8.5 by 8.5.  That's why the "Create New" function won't let you go higher. It's not hoop size but stitching area.  Also if you draw on the largest screen, it will only allow you to use the GR hoop unless your design doesn't use the whole screen.  Hope this helps.

Re: Embroiderabl stuffed animals

What a great idea, thanks!  Too bad I didn’t think of it.  The best I could come up with was buying one at Build a Bear, butI would have had to bring it home to embroider, and then back to the store to stuff  it... a lot more work.
Another question - by posting a message through the website, does it create all the gibberish at the end?  This is the first time it has happened, and I hate to clutter the message list with unnecessary and meaningless writing.  Sue Raabe susies.stitches@...


Accusketch app

VICKIE
 

Hi was just trying to use this app and need an area for my 22 quilting hoop but it looks like only a 9.05 inch area is available. Does anyone know how to increase it this such a fun app. Love my janome products I am sewing on a 15000 Vickie in Ohio

HI Jim,
Thanks for getting back to me. Already checked out the video. Seems like that is what I am doing.

Got a call into Janome tech support. Hopefully they will get back to me Monday.

I used this feature with previous MBX programs for quilting around quilt block designs. Great replacement for free motion stippling. Especially when one is not adept with FMS.

I started with the 8000 and then the 9000.  When I got my 10001 a disk came with it that had all the designs from the last 2 machines in JEF.  I put them on a PC and still have them.  I would be very happy to share them with you.  Also you can change the format on Wilcolm's True Sizer.

I loved my 9000 and am sorry to this day that I sold it.

I haven't used this feature of MBX 5, so I can't offer much help. What I would suggest is that you check out this video from Trevor Conquergood, who is the best source of information on all things related to Janome (and other) digitizing software: https://youtu.be/oRRDFF8yxlc

Is there a way to get the design to your computer? If so, then Embrilliance might work…

Re: Embroiderabl stuffed animals

Why don't you just embroider his name on a piece of fabric and hand applique it on the stuffed animal?  I'm sure no one is going to complain about that.

Does anyone know if the stuffed animals that are made to embroider are available as licensed products?  I'd like to embroider on Elmo for my grandson, but have no idea if such a thing is available.  A few years ago, I kept receiving emails from people who had ordered licensed sports team logo designs from someone with a very similar business name.  Since she had no contact information,  people would call me instead!  I know very little about the legalities except that digitizers need to purchase a licensed logo to sell it as a design. All I'm hoping to do is embroider his name on an unstuffed, legally purchased Elmo!  By asking here, I'm hoping to avoid endless hours of searching for something that doesn't exist.  If I hadn't received an ad for the 'regular' ones, I probably never would have thought of it.  It was an impulse idea, and if such a product doesn't exist, at some point, maybe I can find an Elmo design to embroider, or maybe not!  Not sure if it pays to buy a Brother, and do Disney instead (although my daughter loves Eyore!). Thanks for any info - just want to be clear that I'm not interested in doing anything illegal 🙂.

Re: Stabilizer for embroidery

I would go with 2 layers of medium weight cutaway layered crisscrossed.  they say 1 layer for every 10,000 stitches but if you are using kona cotton (and not a stretch fabric) you should be OK with 2 layers medium weight....good luck and keep us posted.

Re: Bobbin winder

It happened to me too quite a while back and now I always check that I have it threaded correctly and the thread is at the right angle before I start winding.

I ended up using a small pair of sissors and my overlocker tweezers to get every last bit of thread out from under the cutter.  Didn't know at the time you could actually take the cutter off, though I expect I wouldn't have had enough hand pressure to do it.

Re: Stabilizer for embroidery

I have a similar question....working on a Anitagoodesign block..... 9x11" so have to use the GR hoop.  Design has more than 100,000 stitches.  Thinking of trying 2 layers of No Show Fusible or ordering some of Floriani's embroidery batting that says it supports high count design.  Would plan to leave the no show mesh in.  I think either would work.....but will be interested to hear how others answer your question.

MBX 5 Ambience Quilting

Carolyn Gazerro
 

Hi Jim,


I am attempting to use the Ambience Quilting tool on a .jef file.  When I try to use any of the options the tool generates the pattern over the whole area which includes the design.  I select the whole design before using the tool and the measurements are shown in the tool box.  I have also used the repair program feature with no results.  Probably something simple but I am at a loss.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

Hope you had a great Turkey Day!

Barb, I sent a message earlier, but I don't see it posted. Maybe it's due to the outage. Thanks for the advice. I tried pushing up in the back of the needle bar prior to turning my 15000 on and it seems to have corrected the issue. After receiving it back from the dealer she seems to be running ok for now. I will be sewing on it in the next few days and I will let everyone know if I still have issues.

Re: Upgrade and WiFi issues

Everything works except the 15000.  The WiFi connects on both the machine and the iPad, but none of the WiFi functions work.  I think I'll try Janome support before I contact my dealer.  Will be helpful to hear what they say,

Thanks so much Barb. I tried this prior to starting up the machine and it seems to have alleviated this issue. So far no other issues. I'm sewing with it the next few days so we'll see. It's so good to have it back.

Re: Babylock Destiny II vs. Janome 15000

Sue Raabe <susies.stitches@...>
 

I had the Babylock Elissimo before my 12000, and now the 15000.  It was more user friendly than Viking and Pfaff, but not as trouble free.  I don't know if they changed the plate screw locations, but one of them couldn't be accessed with a screw driver; I had to use a dime!  I do miss the camera, but much prefer my Janome.  Babylock may have made improvements since then, but I'm still a die hard Janome fan.  For some reason, all of a sudden, I've had to switch thread brands for the needle threader to work, but it's not worth taking it just for that.  If I can't get it to work with the Isacord, I'll thread it by hand, since I only have a few spools of the new brand.  Janomes are very tolerant, and usually all I have to do is rethread to solve any stitching problems.
