Be sure all your drivers are up to date in your PC.

Subject: [janome12000] HL update to 1.31

 
I’ve been fighting with this all morning.  So tired of trying to work around Win10.  I finally uninstalled all HL.  Reinstalled the original disk.  Downloaded v. 1.2 and I’m trying to install it.  It says Horizon Link not  installed.  I tried finding everything HL and putting it all in Programs(x86) folder. That didn’t work.  HL is installed.  I opened it to make sure it works.
 
So I can’t even get 1.2 installed, much less the new update.  I had it to v. 1.30 before I uninstalled everything.
 
Any advice?
Thanks,
Cas


Knee Lifter Adjustment

blue_lak <no_reply@...>
 

On another post, someone asked for suggestions on what we do to "reach" the knee lifter. Though mine are both adjustable, they still aren't a comfortable reach. This was a suggestion I picked up somewhere, and it's worked marvelously and comfortably. Cut an 8" length of flexible swimming pool noodle and slide it onto the blade of the knee lifter. It stays snugly in place and is firm enough to take knee pressure and not compress/flatten.

Hello Joann. I sent you a long email with photos that may have gone to your spam folder. And I forgot to mention I use a glue stick (another lady said she uses glue dot. Just as good) to hold my pieces in place until I either hand appliqué or machine appliqué them.

Life's biggest decision is what you do with Jesus.

Use quality thread. All threads don’t glide the same way. 

Practice on scrap. 

Go slowly. 

Make notes of threads and stitch width and length you like. 

Accept the fact that perfection is not achievable. Really good IS achievable.

My foot on my 15000 lifts automatically when I cut the thread. Other times I use the knee lever…

Wish I could help you. I am the one person who has tried everything that Janome rep has suggested including four procedures from Tokyo. Not fixed yet. I am beginning to think I will never even get to use HL. I can't even install from the original CD. I have no Horizonlink on my pc. Period. End of story. Good luck to you.

Instead of zigzag, why don't you use the applique stitch/blanket stitch?

Question about MC 14000

J Fraker
 

I currently have the 12000 which I'm very happy with.  I found a really good deal on a 14000.  Can anyone who has had both tell me if it worth moving up to the new machine?

Forgot to add: if you have the 15000, you can corner by pressing the corner button - see the manual.

You may want to secure your Applique piece ( like a drop or two of glue or use a glue stick,)

Are you using a 15000?  There is an app that has the specific settings.  Clicking that B button really helps when cornering.  Setting the pivot option is optimal when appliquéing.  Your needle holds the fabric in place while you’re moving the fabric around.

I am new to applique and would like any tips for a beginner.


I have the right foot on and have the zigzag stitch.

Am stitching on cotton fabric, have the fabric ironed on.

Do I just practice or is there a right or wrong way to begin??

Thank you for your help

Re: Leg lever

B Diane Landon <publicaddress@...>
 

I was never able to use the leg lever with my 6600. Soon as they came out with the adjustable style on newer machines I bought it and put it on my 6600. I had to remove a decorative strip of wood from the table to be able to put it in but now I can use it. My S9 cane with the adjustable one.

Does anyone know what the most resent version is available for My 15000 app? I have Version 1.4.1(14)-10. Is that the latest? If not, how do I do the update? Also, my FootBook app is version 4.0.6(7)-8. Trying to stay up to date on all my sewing app. Thank you all, Pam in Central NY. Sent from my iPad

Your "My 15000" is current. FootBook is a little newer, but I will be releasing an update shortly so there is no need to do anything right now.


Re: Needle threader

cas <cassweet@...>
 

I used to leave about 3” dangling when threading, but found it works better to leave about 4” of thread dangling.  This mechanism must pull the thread further.  You could also try pulling some so it’s loose up by the spool.

 

I still find it threads well with the dangling thread instead of putting it in the thread cutter.

Thanks Jim, I’m going to go view them now.  J

Btw I have an ipad Mini 2 and it is updated to Version 11.0.3

I don’t know if it’s supported but it seems to work ok.  I have model PG972LL/A

Wow, there’s a lot of new stuff in the My 15000 app since I last used my ipad.

Thanks for all the help for us.

Re: 15000 upgrade

This topic got on with the threader issue because I was not able to start a new topic. My dealer has the same problem with the knee lifter (the thing that raises the presser foot with your knee). We can not reach it comfortably without stretching,  so she asked me to see if any of you have any tricks/suggestions.

By the way, Jim, she sings your praises and is telling all her customers how informative your apps are.
