Is this the design you are looking for  if so I have a disk of designs you can have, it is an extra one, says for MC 11000, 10001 and 10000.  Let me know and I can mail to you, Claire Schutz


Re: Stabilizer for embroidery

I do large stitch counts also but I use a medium weight tearaway.  I do use a fusible featherweight interfacing on the fabric and make sure that it is put on the hoop on the straight of the grain. If I am doing large stitch counts that are going on clothing I embroider directly on nylon mesh stabilizer and then applique the design to whatever it is going on.  This does save the article if you have a boo boo.  I also do this for onsies and tee's.  If you have appliqued the design it can always be taken off and then put on something else.

Timing problem?

blue_lak <no_reply@...>
 

I started noticing bobbin thread showing on top between every "other" stitch when regular sewing. My testing of needles, threads, fabrics, tensions, could make it nearly disappear, but it still appears ever so slightly. I haven't tried adjusting the red bobbin case tension. I can't recall ever seeing thread tension imbalance show up between every other stitch like this so wondered if the timing is off. Thoughts, Jim?
Jan in MD

When bobbin thread shows on top the first thing that most users (and far too many technicians) try is tightening the bobbin tension. In 99.999% of the cases this is the wrong fix and will ultimately lead to new problems. I would suggest removing the bobbin case and checking it carefully, top and bottom, for any roughness or burrs. Assuming that it is not damaged, put it under a very strong light. Us magnification if possible. If you look down on it from the top, with the screw at the 6 o'clock position, you will see a thin metal spring pushed up against the metal guide that the thread goes through. This spring pinches the thread with just the right amount of pressure to balance the top and bottom thread. Follow the print to the left where it actually touches the metal guide. Look for evidence of lint, such as a tiny ball of white thread, lodged in between the spring and the guide. If there is anything in there it will hold the spring open a bit, which allows too much thread to pull off the bobbin. Use the finest needle you have and gently tease the blockage out, if there is one.

If the "every other stitch" issue is during a zigzag stitch look very carefully at the hole in the needle plate. Damage to the plate on one side of the hole can cause exactly this type of problem. Even if it happens on straight stitching you should still check the plate. Also look carefully at the presser foot. A needle break can often nick the edges of the hole in the foot, especially with plastic feet like F and F2. Those nicks will grab thread and create what looks like tension problems.

Hi Maggie,

Thanks for your suggestion.  I really thought my problem was solved with your suggestion.

I tried your suggestion but I still cannot get the Ambience effect surrounding the design.  Trevor's video suggests    "select all" in the Ambiance Quilting tool where the dimensions show in the tool box.  I would have assumed that was the criteria for the toolbox to generate the effect around the design.  Unfortunately neither his or your suggestion has worked.

Looking forward to Janome tech support's suggestions.  It is probably some little setting that I have to make.

I regularly stitch designs over 100000 stitches, I never require 2 layers of stabiliser. I use a non branded cutaway medium weight, 2.oz stabiliser,  have you test stitched a portion of the design on a similar weight fabric, tried different stabilisers. When you use two or more layers of stabiliser you are in effect creating a quilt, and that brings along with it unwanted puckering. Take a look at the article regarding high stitch count designs

Re: MBX 5 Ambience Quilting

When you use a purchased stitch file you must provide V5 with a closed shape in order for the Ambience quilting option to be selected, to provide that closed shape open the Digitising toolbox, select 'digitise closed shape'' then look at the context tool bar above and select 'Line' now follow the outline of the design then when finished hit enter. Highlight the outline  you just created, open the 'Advanced  Digitising' toolbox, if your object has been deselected, select it again and Ambience Quilting will be available to you. Decide which type you want to use, and when it is finished simply delete the closed shape you created.

Ambience Quilting has always required a closed shape to operate ever since it first appeared in the software, I hope this helps you.

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

Sue Raabe <susies.stitches@...>
 

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

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.

Re: Janome 9000 Design

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

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.

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!

Carolyn
