Prewound Bobbins

Patricia Finnegan
 

Jim what type of prewound bobbins does the 15000 take. I use to buy all my prewound from you and Diane when you had your store in Frisco Texas,  I’m finally running out of them and need to replenish them. Want to make sure I get the right type. I see different ones on amazon from different vendors. I always brought the box of bobbins from you. Please help. Thanks Patti from Flint Texas

Hi Jim: 
Thank you for the update and I checked just now and it is already showing in the App store.
I checked my IPad and I am using Gen 4 so the 11 will not update on my iPad as it available
per Apple for Gen 5 versions. My version will stay at 10.
I do plan at some point in the future to go the iPad Pro but got to save for that one.

Downloading My 15000 now and will check out. I've purchased in the past your 12000 and also the Footbook.
Always great info.
Julia

When attaching the ruffler it really helps to set it on the star position first. That position turns off ruffling and is recommended for attaching. Next, with the foot up, slide the ruffler onto the machine, making sure the black nylon part goes over the needle clamp. Once you do that you just line up the attaching bar with the foot holder and lower the foot holder down to snap it on. Next you will SLOWLY turn the hand wheel through a complete stitch cycle to make sure the needle doesn't hit. There are adjustments on the ruffler for centering the needle if necessary, but it's usually fine out of the box. When you start ruffling never pull the fabric toward you, as it can bend the teeth that make it ruffle. Always pull straight back to get the fabric out. Oh, and after it's attached don't forget to move the lever off the star position. The numbers are how many stitches to take between ruffles.

Thanks so much for the kind words Mary, and for your purchases. The fastest way to get up to speed with Quilt in the Hoop is to tap the Library tab, then "Contents" at the top left, then "Project Videos". QitH is my next target for updating and I'm going to make that happen automatically on the first launch.

One of the many reasons I bought my 15000, aptly named Queen 👑 Fifi, was the iPad and apps that were included. My dealer really didn’t explain any of it to me as he’s very busy and I have to travel an hour to get to him for lessons. I really didn’t understand how the apps worked either until I joined one of the 15000 groups on FB. That’s where I’ve learned SO much. 

Now I use the apps all the time, and I’m still learning. They are wonderful!! I especially love the newer ones without the music...😉 thank you. Easier to hear Diane’s lovely soft voice. I recently bought the Quilting in the Hoop app, but it needs a few days of playing for me to work it out. I’m a very new quilter. 

Very best wishes from Mary in Australia

I'm a bit confused. Are you asking about Floriani U? We don't have it, know nothing at all about it, and can't help with that. If you're asking about the My 15000 app, it is geared toward all levels of sewing expertise. Diane spends several hours on each video to explain the feature as clearly as possible. It is assumed that the viewer is a 15000 owner, and as such has basic sewing skills. So, for example, she explains how to make the various buttonholes, with examples, but does not explain how to position the buttonhole on a garment or how to cut it open.

When Diane opened her Janome dealership in 1987 it was unique in two ways. First, it was owned and operated by a woman. That really bothered the all-male brotherhood of Dallas/Fort Worth dealers, although it was their fault she opened the store to begin with. The second big difference was that she taught classes. Nobody had done that before. Sewing machines were sold like toasters - here it is, goodbye. She recognized that computerized sewing machines needed more than a thank-you-for-shopping-with-us to be used. Over the 25 years she ran the store she got very good at gearing classes to all levels, and that carries over into the videos. When you watch a video you are effectively taking a class from Diane.

Jim, 
I can’t believe how much info is on your program, of course I’ve been in touch with for years and you could always solves a problem.  It is GREAT!!!!.  I haven’t been embroidering , mainly quilting for orphans with a group.  So I have forgotten most about digitizing and using my 15000 which is really a shame because I don’t take it with me to do piecing etc. Now I see all these other things I have after the upgrade I didn’t know about.  I had one day training  by sales rep.  That was just a touch of the iceberg.  So I have one question now anyway, I couldn’t get back into my Floriani U because I wasn’t able to try all the upgrades  as they came out so I was lost. So what I think I am seeing, I don’t know for sure is a simpler way of using all features of the machine.  Am I right about that, more  for the average good seamstress.

Thank you so much I love it.  I didn’t get to the troubleshooting yet, where was that?

You and Diane have done an award winning project.

Theresa

Um, I have version 11.0.3 IOS but see there is a new update to 11.4.1  so I’ll do that now.

 

I had turned my ipad off, but just now turned it on to see what IOS I have.  NOW, the 15000 troubleshooting videos are there.

So maybe, I should have tried a few more steps before bugging you.

Shrug, and thanks for all you do.

I do have to mention I sure do love Diane’s voice and videos.  So pleasant.  The sewing machine always looks immaculate too, as do her nails.  J

Btw the nice clear shots!  I can see in your buttonhole foot better than the one I’m sitting in front of.

Amazing app, is there a place to nominate you for rewards?

No need - you did that when you bought the app. Thanks so much!

The troubleshooting section is PDFs, not videos. You'll find them on the "Resources" tab.


Re: My 15000 App Question

Jim Stutsman
 

As it happens, Apple reviewed the app much faster than usual and it has been approved. It may be a day or two before it appears in the store, but version 1.5.1 is ready. When you search for "My 15000" the "What's New" Version should be 1.5.1. If it's just "1.5" that's the old version that requires iOS 11. This new version supports back to 10.3.

It doesn’t come with a film for the right side.  I used Avery self laminating sheets like this:
https://www.avery.com/products/sheetprotectors/73601

Works great if you’re careful.  I had a few bubbles but used a tiny pin to pop them and a credit card to smooth out the whole works.  I’ve had the same one on there for almost 5 yrs. now.

Re: Fons and Porter episode yesterday

The reply to a question about instructions looks like they will eventually put the instructions on the website.  I remember that show, and silly me, figured at the time I would remember how to easily duplicate the project.  There is a good picture of one of the stitches here, and maybe they will put up instructions.  They do state they used Pfaff and Pfaff stitches.

The Fons and Porter episode 3103 was on the tv.  I wished I could of backed up or taped it, but we stopped our cable and just watch now through an antenna. This was why I could not really catch what I was interested in.  Jan, knew exactly what I was talking about.  These stitches, Radiant, Triple Ribbon and Floating are amazing on the Pfaff!!!  I cannot believe they are ahead of Janome.  I was very impressed!! Thank you everyone for your help!  I will be playing in stitch composer, if I come close to something like these stitches, I will pass them along.

I think I watched most of the videos, but didn’t find the new troubleshooter videos.  Is it because I have the older ipad?  I updated again this morning to make sure.

All -
When I purchased my 15000, I received a thin plastic film to put over the area to the left of the needle plate.  This was to protect the surface from the movement of the embroidery hoop.  I did not receive the same protection for the area to the right of the needle plate, and it is now showing a bit of wear.  Did anyone else receive a plastic film for this right-hand side?  If not, do you think a tablet screen protector film might work if cut to fit?  I don't want it to let go while embroidering and jam the machine.
Thanks!

Rae —

I only got the protector for the smaller left side. You have confirmed what I thought—screen protector. I don’t even embroider all that much compared to the rest of you and the metal is getting a funny, worn appearance. I will get a screen protector today.

Thanks to those of you who responded.

When I got my 15k, I also received only the right side protector. I went to Dollar Tree and bought a pack of tablet screen protectors and put one on. No scratches now.

I had gotten extra thin plastic film from Janome when I had my 12000. 
I was thinking the same thing about putting the film to the right of the needle for the QM 15000.
I think I'll inquire with my dealer and or Janome to see if it is possible to acquire a couple extra films.
