Re: Fons and Porter episode yesterday

At the beginning of each episode the sponsors are listed. I believe that they are now using a Pfaff machine. Previously it was Babylock and for years it had been Bernina.

Why not draw out the stitches and then see if you can duplicate something like that in stitch composer in Horizon Link.

Did anyone see the Fons and Porter episode yesterday (Friday)?  She had on a lady who made the burrito priincess pillow case.  She had some very unusal decorative stitches on her machine which I have never seen before.  The machine they used was all plain and did not show who made it.  The stitches were a half diamond that she sewed on two pieces of cloth and some how she opened it and it was a full diamond.  She also did a stitch that she could add a ribbon thru after she stitched it and one other unsual thing I saw was a very long straight pole like stitch with a ball on the top.  Episode 3103  I don't see anything like these on the Janome 15,000.  I am curious if we can duplicate these stitches and also what kind of machine that was.

Cynthia.  The sponsor for Fons and Porter is PFAFF.  Sorry I did not see it.  But I am sure if I had I could figure the design.  We have so many on our 15000.  I am sure we have one similar.

We have videos for each of the new feet, as well as the Layout function in Horizon Link Suite. We’ve also added a video for AcuSetter, although it was not part of the update. Thanks for asking!


Re: My 15000 Updates

Jeanniett Chicky
 

Is there a tutorial to give a total picture of how to use all the new advances of the upgrades.  Thank you in advance.

Sandie —

I’m in the same boat. I upgraded the machine, then let the Horizon Link update sit in my inbox. I did find it, however, and can tell you that the message says:

(From) Janome America
(Subject) Software Update for Horizon Link Software

Mine came in September 2017.

Hope this helps. Also, I may have responded to you improperly. I didn’t read those instructions either. I’m hopeless!

Re: MC15000

Sandie Williamson <stitchin211@...>
 

Yes, my upgrade was done long ago along with purchase of box of feet, etc..
It is the email with HL update that I need for updating software that I'm referencing. It arrived. I apologize as I thought my presenting of information was clear but wasn't. 
It is that email with software update that I figure will present  a challenge to locate & I asked for clues as to search terms that may succeed. I hope it's clear now. Your help will hasten finding it once I'm unpacked & ready to use my 15000.

I'm very overdue in adding the upgrade to Horizon Link (because sewing world has been packed as I continue trying to get my new sewing space setup). Anyway, with reading this topic, it occurs to me the link for that update came a very long time ago. I'd appreciate knowing some suggestions regarding search terms I'd use to locate that software update because I'd likely have challenge getting it resent. Thanks in advance for sending suggestions.
Bye, Sandra Williamson.

I finally got the link for the upgrade of Horizon Suite from the Janome email address provided by another subscriber to this list. Within an hour of an email sent to them on July 5, they emailed me the information I needed. I think that email address must be “secret” for those in the “know” as I have yet to see it on any links for assistance on the general website.

I was really fortunate, as my link for the upgrade of Horizon Link Suite was in my email box by the time I got home with my machine.  However, I did have a problem with my computer and needed to contact Janome to get another link.  That went smoothly as well.

I suggest you sent a support ticket from the Janome America website and explain everything in the comments box.  They are usually pretty quick in responding as all that needs doing is to email the upgrade to you.  If there is more involved they get back to you by email or phone.

Re: My 15000 Updates

That's what you will see if you open the link on your computer. Try this instead:
  1. Open the App Store on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. At the bottom of the screen tap "Updates". My 15000 should be in there. Just tap it to install, or tap "Update all".
  3. If you don't see it there tap "Search" and enter "My 15000" in the search box. You should then see the cloud icon, although there may be another app (Some kind of casino app) that opens as well in that search. Ignore it.
  4. If you bought the app as part of a bundle you may need to go to the bundle page. Tap the My 15000 preview to open that app, then scroll down to the bundles. They won't show on iPhone, because one of the apps in the bundle is iPad only.
  5. If all else fails, contact Apple support: https://support.apple.com/billing

I don't see the cloud icon.  All I see is the preview information.  Hmmm.

On your iPhone or iPad go to http://my15000.com. Tap on the button that says "Available on the App Store". When asked if you want to open the App Store tap "Open". You will see a cloud icon with an arrow coming out of it. Tap that and you will get updated.

I need some help getting to the new update.  I can't find it live in the store.  Thanks in advance for directions.  Donna Brooke

We appreciate the feedback. As usual, once the app goes live in the store I find bugs. In this case they are cosmetic. I'm polishing now, and will have a 1.5.1 release as soon as I finish. Fortunately none of the bugs are show-stoppers, and they mostly involve proper placement of the "New" badge on updated items.

Ok thanks.  I have windows PC and I’m using feedly.  I’ll look for the Reeder app for my ipad.  Although I rarely turn it on……

I really should go check out the updates to the 15000 app.

Instead I’m boring myself to tears stitching straight stitching on a boring lap quilt…

Lol

Re: High shank vs low shank

Jim Stutsman
 

High shank/low shank applies only to feet that attach with a screw to the presser bar of your machine. Snap-on feet work either way, provided they are the right size for your machine's stitch width. Janome used low shank feet for most of their machines until the Memory Craft 8000. A high shank was required for embroidery. High shank was also needed for machines with built-in dual feed. That's why both of your machines need high shank attachments. It's not related to whether one is better than the other, but rather to what is needed to make the machine work with the features they have designed in. Embroidery and dual feed just needs the presser bar to be higher so the feet (and foot holder for snap-ons) must be high shank. There are some third-party (i.e. not Janome) adapters, but I don't advise using them because they can cause problems with needle threaders. If you are buying add-on feet made by other companies make sure it explicitly says high shank or is returnable.


High shank vs low shank

Roberta K
 

Jim:
Could you please explain the difference between high shank and low shank? Are there advantages to either one? I one better than another? I own the MC6600 and the MC11000se. Both are 7mm and both are high shank. In the past I have come across sewing machine feet that I am interested in, and at least once I have purchased a foot that did not fit on my machine, because of the above. Is there some type of adapter to make one type fit the other?

Thanks,
