I forgot what the original poster wanted to use a double needle in embroidery for?  It seems there is so much thread to deal with already.

I took Diane’s advice and hooped in the smaller hoop, did a practice run and Voila, it worked!  Who knew the machine would not know which size hoop is on.  Next time I will make my border wider so I have some extra room.  Thank you all so much for taking time to answer.  You are a great group!

Re: Zigzag stitch

Pru Joy
 

I am also a bit bamboozled by the simple act of trying to sew two pieces of say water soluble stabiliser together with zigzag (& water soluble thread) - one side will feed at a different rate to the other!

I finally found that if I just overlap them a tiny bit & use a straight stitch plus dual feed foot that the result is better.

But now that I think further, I will see how it feeds by also engaging the dual feed button with the dual feed foot - shall let you know how it goes.

Re: Janome Artistic Digitizer - software issues anyone - need advice?

Love Hatch.  The price is cheaper than most dealer software and it has and “easy” interface.  Lots of support for the software.

 

I purchased the Artistic Suite Professional only to have Janome drop the product after a little more than a year or so.  When I enquired about an upgrade path Janome said there will be no upgrade path from Artistic Suite at this time.

I just purchased Artistic Digitizer software, but haven't opened the package yet as some members of the Janome Facebook group are experiencing problems and not getting Janome to resolve this after almost a week.  I am feeling this software is perhaps just too new.  I'm new to digitizing also so don't want to invest in something not quite working yet.  Someone suggested I give Hatch a try.  Anybody?

Thanks.  I think I will not use in embroidery mode.  Don’t want to break my baby.  Good idea on doubling up on design

On the original 15000 it snaps on, though it does take a little force to get it loose. The Quilt Maker manual no longer mentions this, so I'm thinking they may have taken that feature off.


Re: AcuFil question

Since it is a simple run line if I can hold it on 3 sides I am good to go. If I know I am going to quilt with the acufil method I try to make my backing and batting at least 4” larger so it has something to hold.
I have actually done strip only being held in the top and bottom.

Re: AcuFil question

Virginia
 

I believe this works just like it did ehen we had the 11,000. The acufil program allows us to print a template from our computer however ypu need to rehoop using the yemplayes. It tells ypu how many hoopings using the acufil hoop. The program came with the hoop amd it was an adfitional purchase. However all 3 machines including the 11000, 12000 and 15 all sllow us to select a different hoop once we say ok to the original design. Not sure ehy ypu cannot?

Ok, this is my workaround. Hoop the fabric with the smaller hoop. Use the trace to make sure it fits then stitch. The machine doesn’t know what hoop you have on the machine.

Re: Twin needles

Cheryl Paul
 

Just another note on this twin needle embroidery. IF you are using an embroidery only machine, it might not be possible to do twin needle embroidery as the machine only has one needle plate and it would be a “single” hole and the twin needs more space or it will strike the needle plate. On the “sewing/embroidery” combination machines we have multiple needle plates available as we do regular sewing that might require a zig zag or decorative stitch and this needle plate has a wide opening of 7 mm on the older machines and now a 9mm on the 12/15000 and a few others. This is important to NOTE as you really don’t want to ruin anything on your embroidery machine.

I can’t see why one could copy and paste the same design and move it a wee bit to one side and stitch it twice to get that twin needle effect. You would need digitizing software to do this or know someone who might do it for you. I haven’t experimented with this so I can’t tell for certain if this technique would work.

Lift the plate and look in the upper right corner. You'll see two little pins in a square opening. Dust very, very gently with your little brush.

Re: AcuFil question

I’ve used the AcuFil several times and I believe 5he reason it specifies the ASQ22 hoop is that the grid you are supposed to use fits that hoop. You print out your design and tape it to the grid and it helps you line up the design when you use it continuously. Took a bit of getting used to but I was very pleased by the result.

You probably need to open the Edit mode on the machine and change the hoop size there.
