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.

I had my 15000 updated when the 3.0 update became available.  Also had it serviced at the same time.  I have noticed that when I first power up the machine it seems like it has to “warm” up to go full speed.  This morning was no different, I was in the middle of a seem and it suddenly ramped up to full speed.  Anyone else experiencing this?  Or, does it maybe need to be serviced again?  Don’t want to take it in if it is a effect of the update.

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.

Thank you for subscribing me

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

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.

Re: Travel machine / HP foot and plate

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

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!

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

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 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...

 Well said and I agree. 

 Thank you Jim and Diane for all you have done to inform us on many issues.

Amen. I agree. I do not have a 15000, but have an S7. I have learned more from this group than any other Janome group.

Re: A new Facebook group...

Maggie,
I'm so sorry that I didn't make my posting clearer.  I love this group in both it's formats, the Yahoo and now this one.  This is all about Facebook.  There are those of us who use it, with all its inherent faults, as it's very instant.  There is a group there that was formed for the 15000 machine and unfortunately the administrator of that group, not Jim or Diane, has done a number of questionable things that I didn't want to go into here.  I will give you some idea, however, so you see what I'm talking about.  For me personally, she was mean to a long-time member of the group and called her "needy", deleted some of her posts and the woman who this was done to messaged me, very upset.  I sent a message to the administrator and said that perhaps she made a mistake.  Her reply was (and I saved the email): "I am the ADMIN of this group, I read all the comments, and if ****** is Seasoned then she needs to contribute instead of asking all her questions.. from her posts she is one of the neediest of all the members".  Since then there was another dust-up and two ladies formed a new, drama-free group.  If you go to the original group you will not find this as the administrator has deleted the posts.  Also, since the new group formed, I have heard from others who have left in disgust over various things that were said and from a someone who pointed out to the administrator, in a private message, that she should not be posting copy-righted materials.  The administrator responded by banning this woman (a digitizer who had her own site) from the group.  I wondered why she was no longer in the group. By the way she digitizes and, instead of giving her the money, you send it to a hospital! She's a lovely lady and was trying to be helpful.
I am very sorry to have upset you by my trying to not give too much detail.  I think Jim and Diane are the best and in no way is this any reflection on them and the work they do and the help they give.  I should have taken more care in my posting if it could have been mistaken for a reflection on the Yahoo group which was wonderful and which continues here.
Please accept my apology for any distress I have caused you and anyone else.

Yikes, I just read my original post and of course I should have been clearer. 
I wrote, "A new Facebook group is being formed by those tired of the drama from the old group who have either..."
I should have written: " A new Facebook group is being formed by those tired of the drama from the old FACEBOOK group who have either..."
I really am very, very sorry. 
I am taking cold meds but there is absolutely no excuse for my carelessness.
By the way, Jim has joined the new Facebook group (which is not confidential if you go there and join you will see that). 
Again, I am very sorry.

Re: A new Facebook group...

Ceil, the problem with black text on a white background, or indeed any text, is it needs to be very carefully worded so its intended meaning is crystal clear. Text doesn't give visual clues, it doesn't contain vocal hints, body language, a hint of a smile or a frown, its a very sterile form of communication. You have to paint a verbal picture for the reader if there isn't to be a mismatch of meanings. Perhaps had you made a qualifying statement along the lines say of, to those members here that belong to the FB group 15000, a new off shoot has been started. Then included the link.  Sorry if I sound old school maam-ish, but I am a retired teacher. 
I am genuinely pleased that you have explained your mail, and I am delighted you value Jim and Diane as much as I do. Who knows perhaps this topic may lead others to realise meaning in messages has to be clear, readers don't all share the same mental lexicon so can't fill in the missing parts.

I have relied on Jim and Diane since owning the MC8000. They are my first go to for support. That is without contacting my dealer and Janome support. Jim and Diane are the most knowledgeable in this area. They go above and beyond the call to duty. Would never think of joining another group. We also have the bonus of Jim’s humor.

So true, and it occurred to me that I didn't think  of this group as a "new" group, just a migration of the Yahoo group to a new platform.  In my mind, the same group, different format but others see it as a new group.  It's really important to think outside of yourself. So that may have contributed to my careless post. 
In any event we're here to learn and share and this certainly has been a learning event for me!
