Re: A new Facebook group...

I read this mail in total disbelief, it implies a friction existed, something I never experienced in the old group, it is also totally inappropriate to advertise another group on a successfully running platform that fulfils the needs of its membership and owner.  Quite frankly I'm appalled by your  mail, it shows a lack of group etiquette on your part, and implies this groups owner lacks the expertise and skill set to run a group. 2 attributes Jim and Diane have continuously shown they both have in abundance. 

Jim quite sensibly portaged the old group to this platform after discovering Yahoo had removed support for Yahoo groups back in 2014, something they never advised group owners about. One thing beyond his control was members whose mails were bouncing, Groups.io. do not transfer members who are bouncing mails back to senders, they class them as removed. Had the group remained with Yahoo/Verizon/Oath it would have been left to decay to the point of destruction, a point many Yahoo groups have found themselves in. 

This group has two very important assets, three if I include Jim's lovely sense of humour, those assets are Jim and Diane Stutsman, it would be a very foolish move to leave the known tried and tested knowledge of the owners of this group to follow an untried, untested group that appears by the first mail in this thread, to be a group of disaffected, dare I say drama queens, perhaps not, but certainly people who are maybe disappointed that Jim and Diane chose not to use perhaps the worse group provider on the web, FaceBook.

A new Facebook group...

Ceil J
 

A new Facebook group is being formed by those tired of the drama from the old group who have either left the old group, were removed, or who stay on the old group as they still have friends there. For anyone interested it's https://www.facebook.com/groups/845868782253879/?ref=bookmarks and it is called Horizon Memory Craft 15000 (Janome).  All are welcome!

I hope you feel better soon!  Yes, that's only one of the great things about our machine!

Looking forward to sewing more in 2018!

Thanks to this beautiful couple that keeps the group going.  I just had a total knee replacement done 2 weeks ago so I need to take it easy but what's hard about pushing buttons on a machine, right?  So I'm hoping to get busy and finish my granddaughters quilt for her March birthday!

Re: Travel machine / HP foot and plate

suerevere@ymail.com
 

The HP foot and plate are also standard with the Horizon Quilt Maker Memory Craft 15000. It is available as an optional kit for the Memory Craft 15000. I bought this kit after the dealer did my free update on my 15000 - which I am selling, btw, as I have a multi needle and no longer need my wonderful 15000 which only has about 35 hours of actual stitching. PM me if anyone is interested -- LOTS of extras

It does sew normal and is flat when lowered.  I just found it odd.  Thank you for your response.  Sharon

The foot snaps on to the foot holder by lowering it onto the bar. That is the only attaching point. Because the OV foot has a screw on the back, the back is heavier than the front, so it may hang down when raised. However it should sew flat when lowered. What you describe seems normal, but if you think there is something wrong you should see your dealer to confirm it's correct.

Thank you for subscribing me

Thank you for subscribing me, I have been very busy and am looking forward to being able to do some sewing , I have had the new plate and threader fitted to my 15000 over the break, so should be ready to go
I hope all those in the affected States can keep warm
Happy New Year

Re: Horizon 15000 after update.

Jim Stutsman
 

This is not a feature of the update. It could be due to the use of a very heavy grease applied during servicing. It's definitely something your dealer should address.

Can’t say I have noticed this since upgrading to Quiltmaker v3.

Check the start up speed on the set screen. It may have been set to slow during the update or servicing.

Re: Horizon 15000 clear view 9 mm 1/4 inch foot

Thank you Jim for moving all of us to the new format. 

 

I have a question about the ¼ inch clear 9 mm foot, OV.  When I put in on, the back hangs down.  I have never seen a foot that does that and was wondering if that’s the way it’s supposed to fit on the presser foot holder.  I went online to the Janome website and the picture that shows the foot is in the down position.  The footbook doesn’t show it attached to the machine.  My regular ¼ O foot doesn’t hang in the back.  In other words, the only thing holding the foot to the presser foot is the bar that attaches to the presser foot and it’s hanging from that bar in the back.  Thanks for your help.  Sharon

Have checked all that, it is very odd that after about a 1/2 hour to 1 hour the speed resumes normal.  Starts out what seems to be about 1/2 speed when turned on cold.

I love the capability of seeing the attachment picture instead of waiting to get the “yahoo groups” summary.  So far this change to groups.io has lots of benefits.  Thanks Jim!

If it’s like the 15000 you can just resume sewing, ignoring the message if you don’t want it to remember.
