 Wondering if I’m using the correct foot.   As I am seeing a 1/4” seam and the bottom seam / layer is always wonky (not even with the top).

Any suggestions?

HP Foot

cas <cassweet@...>
 

Remember I mentioned my 15000 seemed to have no energy since I upgraded?  My dealer told me it’s because I’ve been using the HP foot to do patchwork and paper piecing.  He said it is intended for heavy fabrics like leather.  I thought it was advertised as great for quilting because of the high visibility and ease around curves and stuff?

 

Mine just balks and won’t move the fabric forward at times.  I’m doing paper piecing now and when I go to join the two halves and there is a lot of bulk in the center (stars) it really bunches up. 

 

Thoughts?

I get that too, Peggy. So frustrating! Sometimes I can sew for quite awhile without it, and sometimes it's every few stitches. There was a thread a couple weeks ago with suggestions on how to stop it from happening, but I haven't tried any of them yet. I'm not going to bother taking mine to my dealer because I have zero confidence in their competence, and I know they will just try to sell me a new machine...they are totally about machine sales.

Wow this is a great app! Thanks Jim! There are so many things I don't know about my machine and when to use certain feet and I have had Janome machines for at least 35 years! I will use this app a lot!

Actually all of the apps run on iPad. If you get that bundle you also get FootBook and My15000 on the iPhone/iPod Touch as well. Quilt in the Hoop is iPad only because of the amount of screen space it needs. You can watch the videos on your computer if you add a piece of inexpensive software: http://www.airserver.com
AirServer uses the built-in "AirPlay" feature of your iPad to show the iPad screen on your computer. It has a free 14-day trial, and is $15 for individual use. But wait - there's more! If you happen to have an Apple TV (V3 or 4k) you can use AirPlay to view the videos on your TV screen. The AirPlay function also works with iPhone.

I’m getting as well.  
And my machine is making a clunking noise.    Guess it’s time to go see the repairman.

Thank you for explaining the difference - It make sense of an issue I had with a specific embroidery project.

Jim,  I was looking at your Janome 15,000 app bundle.  You have a choice of i-pad or i-phone.  If I take the i-pad, will it also show up on my computer?  Sometimes, I just prefer to sit down and watch without holding my i-pad.   I am excited; these look like great videos and anxious to get to watching!




Do you sew?  Please visit my blog at www.cynsew.com for tutorials.

Re: whose turn to make the coffee

James you say the nicest things. 
So with your permission I will take advantage of your offer today.
I run a group for owners of MBX V5, Hatch V1, Embird Studio plug in, those of my members that use the Bernina software thanks to the similarities of the user interface can easily follow along, others who use various brands of software are able to identify similar tools and functions in their software enabling them to also follow along. There are no subscription charges, membership of my group comes with access to my 2 websites where members can download videos to their computers to view and hopefully learn. There are no charges for the videos.  I encourage members to ask questions, and normally upload video answers which are available to all my members, I also encourage other members to offer answers as there are so many ways to achieve what might be eluding a member and also because I learn new wrinkles as well.

My overriding interest is to encourage those who have digitising software to use it for more than just transferring designs, software isn't cheap, though compared to commercial digitising suites, domestic digitising programs are relatively inexpensive, but to use it to simply view designs, transfer designs to a machine, owners of the software are not getting the most from the investment made, and that is what makes it expensive. I cannot make a member a digitiser, only the member can do that, it takes time to acquire the skill sets needed, a willingness to experiment, fail and learn from the failures,  it takes effort and commitment plus a realisation simply clicking a mouse button wont produce a stunning design. All I can do is offer help, support, encouragement and a few W's, What, When, Where, Why, Would, the rest comes from the end user. 

What I do not do, I do not show how to auto digitise, I do not encourage members to sell designs until they demonstrate they are consistently producing designs that demonstrate they have acquired all the various skill sets needed. I do not offer private lessons or critiques, I do not affirm a person's belief they can digitise when they first join the group, if needed I try tactfully to suggest that family, or the lady across the street that wants free designs aren't objective enough. I do not encourage looking at designs under a microscope, if it looks good at arms length that is the closest it should be scrutinised at, and no magnifying glass. I do not or allow others to belittle or attack, members, I do not allow requests to share purchased designs or copy righted images, I do not allow members to advertise their own sales sites or have religious taglines at the end of messages. My group is secular, and non political. I do not allow racist comments, the love of embroidery and sewing transcends borders and ethnicity.

So if after reading this you feel my group could assist you, contact me via an e mail to maggiecoops@... include the e mail address you wish to use, your software, and I will send an invitation to join my unlisted group at groups.io

Thank you Jim,
Maggie Cooper UK aka digimad, mags meandering.

Ok thanks.   I’ll double check the foot.

Both Dual Feed feet are used to keep the top and bottom fabrics together as they are sewn. The foot has feed dogs on top of the fabric that match those on the bottom, so they act as a clamp to hold everything together while stitching. If you are seeing the fabrics shift it probably is due to the foot not being pushed securely into the dual feed mechanism. As noted in the video for the VD foot in our FootBook app, that foot is best for small things and tight spaces.

Take the bobbin case out and examine it carefully. Look for rough places or sharp edges. It's very common for the hook to cut a nasty gouge into the bottom of the case if it pops out due to a "bird nest". Also check the little flipper on top. If you push it toward the center it should pop back out when released. If it flops around then the spring has become disconnected and it will cause exactly the problems you mentioned. With patience and tools it is usually possible to re-set the spring.

Replacing the yellow dot case is certainly possible, but it would almost certainly need to be ordered. Most dealers keep the standard, red dot case in stock, but not the yellow one. The only difference, other than the dot color, is that the yellow dot case has had the tension screw turned clockwise to increase the bobbin tension. If you can embroider with the red dot case without bobbin thread showing, then you don't need the yellow dot case. Use the red for everything.

I think the embroidery bobbin case (yellow dot one) is damaged. The thread keeps knotting up and breaking. It does not do it with the sewing one when I used it for embroidery. My question is can those be fixed or best if to replace. Thanks

The roll of stuff is samples of different kinds of stabilizer to use with embroidery module. The dual feed feet are your walking feet. I’m thrilled with my S9.
