In this group each person's email addresses are shown most of the time so I don't see this issue as an individual's responsibility to keep that information under wraps since it has already been shown (members only but that would include many addresses). 
Yes, my Gmail puts many messages in my spam folder & it does a fine job!  Infrequently & typically after missing an expected message, I look there & can 'un-spam' the message but mostly, it makes me realize how active & effective that system is. I'd say 99.8% of messages there need to remain. That system isn't flawless though as yesterday in an attempt to keep track of information, I emailed a tutorial to myself & an alert was put on it saying that it was likely not sent by that person!  I've used that for years because it works & has brought no attention til yesterday- I chuckled.
Anyway, while I get that remaining private is nearly impossible, our technology serves us well, makes communication around the world as efficient as contacting a neighbor. I could not be without these ways & while remaining private is challenging, remaining reachable is my priority.

I'd hoped that we'd have a little more rigorous filtering here than on Yahoo, but the bad guys are very clever at avoiding such things. I'm sorry I didn't go moderated from the start - I really hoped we were over that!

Unfortunately groups.io does not give me the ability to change text color. However I can reply using this funky typewriter font. My first word processor was a used Smith-Corona that I got while in high school. Learning the keyboard was the second-best thing I got from the college-prep class "Keyboarding and Notehand". The best thing I got out of that class was, of course, my wife of 48+ years.

Thank you, Jim.  Sorry you have to go through these hoops too.  I also liked the red responses.
Countless times I've asked relatives (friends seem to get this point) not to put my address in a long list of things they think they need to send to everyone but instead to send it to themselves and bcc everyone. I'm guessing they don't read my emails (either).  Recently I've been hit with a lot of spam but found out that with Gmail, I can set up the folder to send spam directly to the trash.  Love this feature although most likely something of interest  may, from time to time, be marked by gmail as spam.  But I'm willing to accept that rather than have to look at those annoying and sometimes disgusting spam emails.

Jim, I kept my group on moderation, I'm afraid there are some very advanced, 'I'm bored I think I'll stir up some hassle' folks dotted all over the globe. There are also a great many iphone, android phone, tablet and computer users out there that make it so simple for the mischief makers and the downright malicious scammers and hackers. I used to ask every one, do not put my e mail address in a contact list/address book/auto filler, use a good old fashioned address book and keep it by your computer. Type the address in and say NO when you are asked, do you want to add this to your address book. I got yelled at, told I was scared of technology, letting a mail handler fill the address bar was so much easier than typing in an address.  Thanks to the number of folks who had address books etc, I had to give up my domain address, I was receiving hundreds of spam mails, proposals of marriage, phishing mails purporting to be banks, PayPal, Amazon, Insurance companies, help I'm stranded send me funds and medications for gentlemen with certain types of bodily failures daily. 

I asked numerous times what security programs did folks use on their computers, tablets, i pads, i phones or the android versions, and discovered worryingly most Apple products users, had no security apps believing wrongly they were more secure than android or windows products. This isn't a which is better an apple or a windows thing, but a genuine concern for the total lack of care so many folks demonstrate when using any Internet attached device. I eventually gave up trying to convince folks to use safe computer practises, put my old group on permanent moderation, got rid of my mail handler and read mails at server level, something I still do. My new group is on permanent moderation, yes it does mean more work for my two moderators and myself, but at least it keeps my members safer despite their reluctance to practise sensible computer/internet habits. 

I'm sick of folks telling me they are too old to learn new ways of doing things, Bovine excrement, what they really mean is 'I'm to lazy to try' one of my dearest friends is in his 90's and he is learning Cantonese via an online course ready for a trip to China later this year. We natter regularly over a landline phone, as he said, too many noseyparkers can hack my mobile and Skype is like letting a burglar in to rifle through my papers while I make a cup of tea,  I don't disagree with him. From the bottom of my heart I say thank you for putting your group on moderation.

Thanks Jim, I always liked the moderation.  I liked when your text was red too.  Is that still possible?

Thanks for your caution, and I‘m sorry for the extra efforts you‘ll have moderating each post.

Hi Randi - the newest update to the 15K is to update the machine to the newest 15K, which includes replacing the needle threader.  It's free and is done at the dealer's in the U.S.  Contact your dealer and ask them about taking your machine in for the update. 

Good to hear from you - I took a class from you several years ago.  Dottie in Texas

The upgrade is “free”.

There is also a Quiltmaker  kit you can purchase from your dealer http://www.sewvacdirect.com/janome-memory-craft-15000-quilt-maker-accessory-upgrade-kit/. This kit lists for $199 but dealer discounts are usually applied.  I have found the 1/4 inch foot and the open foot very useful.

Hope this clarifies the whole upgrade issue.

Thanks for the suggestions to get my 12000 working. This group is great.  We are setting up sewing and craft room today.  I really want to get some sewing done.  It is sad that the only Janome dealer around here can't offer suggestions. 

Re: Horizon Link

Randi you have to take your machine for the upgrade. It is a new upgrade so chances are you do not have it. When ypu get the upgrade you receive new feet if this helps you to remember. When you tirn the machine the scteen shows Quiltmaker.

-- I was wondering about the update for the 15000. I guess I need to go and turn it on and see what I have. I haven't used it much in the last 6 months, I have been doing a lot of hand applique and piecing using my faithful 6500. Also got an Artistic S/D that I have been learning on my own so just have not got to my 15000.

Thanks for that ... I can see the fit to hoop button but not a centering button ...?

i just checked the SQ14 hoop again & yes it’s own plastic template does line up with the plastic notches for Centering.  But when you fit a design to the hoop in AcuDesign it shows the blue Center crosshairs as about a centimetre below the notches ... yahhh, wish I had a “tear hair” emoticon!

Your dealer notifies Janome that your update is done then Janome sends you a link for the update

I had my 15000 updated in December.   I am just getting around to Horizon Link.   Was I supposed to get a CD to update to 1.3?   I was kind of following the conversations and thought I could download update.   I don’t see an update online.   Thanks Janet
