Hi Cas,

The Pellon product is a stabilizer for things like collars and cuffs. It is definitely not stiff enough for a purse.

Re: Connecting my 15000 to wifi

You can send to the machine wirelessly using the EmbLink Tool in Horizon Link Suite. First click the circle icon in the top left corner and choose "Connection Settings". There you can set it for wireless, assuming that it finds your machine. Note that if you open this tool when the machine is not online, it may seem to hang for an extended period and you may get the "Not responding" when clicking on it. Once configured for WiFi, the program assumes the machine is always ready.

There are 2 ways to connect one is direct connect where you plug the cord into your machine and the computer at the same.  the cord comes with your machine and this was available in both the 12,000 and the 11,000 and the 15,000.  But you must set that up according to your manual.  The wifi is Ipad only unless you have a mac and not sure it even works with the mac computer because it isall tied in with the apps.  That is why when the 15,000 first came out about 5 years ago they included the mini ipad for the wifi connection.  Horizon link is a windows program.  You will probably have to use the direct connect like I explained or use a USB.  I know I hated the invest in the ipad because I am a wondows android gal but my theory is if you gonna spend the $$ on the car you have to put gas in it and in this case the machine vs wifi.  I did download the apps on my new ipad but honestly I probably will never use the option unless I use a design that is included with the ap.  I have viewed the videos on you tube, but they have not helped me at all they are all very basic.

If I remember correctly you can send wirelessly with Horizon Link which is windows based.

I believe the wifi is for an ipad. Not a windows computer. With your machine you should have received a card with a code for Itunes and that is where you download to your Ipad the acudesign and the rest of the apps. I am a windows person but had to invest in a mac ipad for my 15000 to use the wireless option with my machine.

I set up my 15000 last night, so that it was wifi enabled. I have the black wifi sign in the top right of my screen.My 15000 is switched on and just about 4 feet from the router/PC.
Just went to the Emblink Tool in Horizon Link. Clicked the top left button - Connection Settings - clicked wifi button and search.

Re: Digitizing software

I received a Floriani program as part of the package when I bought my 15000. She had discounted the machine and threw in the program which I believe was valued at over $1000. I had no idea of how to use it but knew I wanted to do embroidery. I was able to use it to embroider images online that were the right size and density. The manual was rather confusing for me as I am a visual learner. I finally found this wonderful website on YouTube of a fellow who posts all kinds of videos on how to use the program, plus how to digitize a design. The idea that most of us don’t even know what we don’t know is right on. I’m still very happy with the software, which upgrades for free, even though I have to use VMWare on my Mac, but it’s one of those things where you really have to get experience before you really know what you need. Having sewn for 55+ years, I was certain about the 15000.

I don't normally wade into discussions about Digitising software, but today I'm making an exception. The reason I don't wade in is because of my bias, I've owned several different digitising suites, Brothers embroidery suite, Pfaffs embroidery suite,  Husqvarna's software.  I now own  Floriani  FTC-U , Generation plus software, Embird basic + Studio, cross stitch, photo-stitch, iconizer, , Janome MBX version 5 ( I started with Janome Digitiser 10000, and upgraded) Wilcom's Hatch, Wilcom's Embroidery Studio version 3 and am looking at upgrading to ES4, . 
One thing I've realised about any software not just digitising software, is the user interface has to suit the end user, if it doesn't learning how to get the best from any program will be an uphill struggle. I'm an end user that prefers not to have to leave my digitising screen in order to export to a stitch format, edit stitches, create multi hoop layouts, write to card or usb, I prefer to handle everything in a one screen setting, not have to jump to an editor or manager. Although Janome digitiser 10000 was very limited, and I used Embird at the same time, it was the Janome digitiser that made me actually learn two things. Firstly it forced me to be inventive, to experiment and find ways to overcome the programs limitations and learn how to manually digitise. Secondly it taught me, it's not all the bells and whistles a program may or may not have, that makes an end user a good digitiser, but what an end user does with the tools provided.

I have the latest build of Embird, its still a good program, but for me and my user interface preferences, the Wilcom written programs are superb. Here is where I have to declare I beta test Wilcom software, their domestic and commercial packages. There was a tremendous leap forward in Janomes Digitiser Pro version 3, version 4 saw another huge leap forward, and version 5 flew skywards. I personally can't wait to see what MBX 5.5 has to offer. As for pricing, that is decided by Janome America, not Wilcom. Wilcom's own domestic software, a really nice user friendly software with the added bonus of excellent software support provided by Wilcom, is priced by Wilcom, and is affordable, it shares a similar user interface with the Bernina and Janome software.  Am I trying to sell it, no I am not, I couldn't give a monkeys which software folks buy, but I would say, ask yourselves do I like one screen applications, or do I prefer switching between modules. Am I prepared to put in the time, effort, commitment needed to learn to digitise manually, or would an auto digitiser suit my needs better.

Oops, I didn’t scroll down.  The Bosal In-R form does come in fusible. It is not fleece though so you would need to add a liner if you use it.

I think I used the white sew in.  I don’t think it comes in fusible.  It’s not fleece though, more like a thin foam.

Good luck with your decision, after all the only good software is the one that works for you.

Re: Digitizing software

The difficulty for beginners is that when they are looking around, they don't know what they don't know.
It's the same with sewing machines, embroidery machines, overlockers/sergers, coverstitch machines and with digitising software.
The package is only a tool that we use to digitise a design and it's often learning the process of digitising that is the most important part.

It's not always the price of the package that matters in the long run and everyone has their own preferences about which of the many different packages available they like and there are pros and cons with all of them.

My personal preference is for Hatch or Janome Digitiser V5 over Embird any day because I prefer the user interface and I find the mechanics of using the programme to create a design is more straight forward.  There's nothing wrong with Embird or many of the other packages per sae.  Thanks to what I've learnt from some amazingly generous people I know that I can digitise an acceptable design on most software packages, I'd just have to find out which buttons or menus to use to do what I want.  However, that's not the situation that a beginner faces.

I'm glad (in a way) to be reading that some are not pleased with the Artistic software as I was ready to jump on this when it came out.  That clearly would have been a mistake and now I'll wait to see what the reviews are once the dust settles. Thank you!  The opinions give here are so helpful.

Thanks for your comments on the “medieval” comment on Artistic software because it is so true.  I’m wondering if the new will be just add ons to what is already in the previous program - if so it is a disaster in my opinion.  It is NOT at all easy to use and the sequencing is absolutely hopeless if you have more that a half dozen thing to move about, as you just can’t see enough in those horrible trays.  We’ll just have to wait and see what comes in the new Artistic digitizing software.
