Re: Bobbin winder

Anne Parker
 

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.

Janome 9000 Design

Cynthia Dickerson
 

I purchased the Janome 15000 Quilt Maker and, unfortunately, I am going to have to sell my Janome 9000, which is practically like new.  There is one design that I am partial to and it is the Christmas Wreath (#1) on card number 110.  Does anyone have that design in Jef format or does anyone know how I can transfer that design to jef.  Seems like there is no software available to do that with anymore.  I am sentimental and when I bought my first Janome, the store had this design sewed out by the machine.  I took one look at it and fell in love.  This was the beginning of my passion for the Janome line of products and I love them all.  I just can't sell it without keeping that one design!!  I wish Janome would give us all the 9000 designs on a cd like they did for the 8000 machine for Christmas!!!  Any help would be so appreciated!!



Re: Stabilizer for embroidery

vesta@...
 

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!

Carolyn

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.

Stabilizer for embroidery

Carole OMara
 

I have the Janome 12000 and have only done small embroider projects.  I have a design that is 37000+ stitches, 7.8 x 7.8 size.  I will use the SQ23 hoop and embroider on Kona cotton.  The design will be made into a throw pillow.  Which stabilizer should I use to support all the stitches?  

Thanks for any advice.

Embroiderabl stuffed animals

Sue Raabe <susies.stitches@...>
 

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: Upgrade and WiFi issues

Gail
 

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.

Thank you for responding. Will try that. We tried to lift the disc off but it felt like the edges were going to break ....maybe didn’t have my thumbs on the shaft...so will try it like you suggested. Thanks again

The plastic cutter disc does come off. Put fingers on each side, thumbs on the shaft, and pull up with the fingers while pushing down with the thumbs.


Re: Upgrade and WiFi issues

I would check that your other electronics that use your internet connection still work. I had issues with my internet connection – sometimes it would work, sometimes it wouldn’t but it was for all devices hooked to it. There was a “switching” problem at a central location which took 3 trips for the Windstream techies to figure out and finally correct!

I have always used WiFi to transfer designs to my machine and would also use AcuMonitor on my iPad if I left the room.

 

When I got my machine back after the upgrade, Horizon Link Suite could find my machine but would not send designs.  I thought it was because I hadn't updated Horizon Link Suite yet.  The AcuMonitor was also not working.  Again, it could find my machine but would not display the embroidery.

 

I updated Horizon LS today and I'm getting the same results.  I went into WiFi settings and reentered the network info and changed the name of my machine.  Same results, can find the machine, but cannot sent.  Says Connection Issues or something like that.  I know it's seeing the machine because it has the name change,

 

Any suggestions?

There is no reason why your dealer would have had to do anything with the network settings. I would suggest asking to have the V3 update installed again. It sounds like something is incomplete or incorrect in the installed V3 software.

That happened to me when I first got my 15000.  Ever since then I aways watch it wind.

My 12000 gives me the same message. If I gently push up in back of the needle bar, it solves the issue. Barb

I’ve had that problem and I now hold the thread in my left fingers to hold it at the right height until the bobbin is well started.

Re: AcuDesign update

Well, I reinstalled acudesign and dropbox, then copied the files right from dropbox to acudesign, instead of importing from acudesign. So far so good. Hopefully, won't lose anymore edited files in my design folder.


Re: Bobbin winder

helencreamore@...
 

I had this happen before and discovered I had allowed a loop of thread to get underneath when prepping the bobbin for winding. I am more careful now and it has never happened again.

Re: Bobbin Holders

blue_lak <no_reply@...>
 

I read that too and thought it very helpful in explaining the specific tension differences and how they interacted with the needle thread. That makes it easier to figure out other which bobbin to try with which thread and project, especially if you're having stitch out issues.
