859428118 Embroidery Hoop (ASQ22)
862671107 Embroidery Hoop (FA10) 100x40mm

There is an additional optional hoop you can buy which is very useful (I use it quite a lot)

and there is an optional accessory for the SQ14 hoop 
859436005 Hat Hoop Insertion (for use with SQ14)

You can use pre-wound embroidery bobbins for ordinary sewing if you don't mine white thread, and possibly a bit more bobbin tension. The pre-wound bobbins are made with low-cost, high-tension thread for bobbin, since the back side is not usually important in embroidery. However if you use one in regular sewing the bobbin police will not come, you will not have to send one to each of 12 friends, and you won't get money or a new friend by the end of the week.

Partially true: 12000-Yes, 11000-No


Re: Prewound Bobbins

Maria Morrow <mariamorrowquilter@...>
 

I hate to ask a dumb question, but are we supposed to use this type only for embroidery, not for regular sewing?

I’ve heard that bobbin thread should match sewing thread, but embroidery bobbin thread is always the same type as mentioned in this email.  But can we use these for regular sewing?

The best deal is a box of 108. Janome's prewounds with RA bobbin thread are the only ones sold in a quantity of 108. Others are 144. Here's a sample deal, there may be better on the web: http://a.co/fHuVuGR


Hoops for MC 15000

Carole Hollmann
 

All —

For most of my embroideries, it seems like the hoops I have are either too small or larger than I need.  So I was doing a search for hoop sizes for the 15000 today and came upon a website, janomeflyer.com, I think. I believe it may have been a Canadian site.  At any rate, the following paragraph about included hoops caught my eye:

Hoops:  The MC 15000 comes with the standard SQ23 and SQ14 hoops, a large GR hoop for bigger projects and even a quilting hoop for your bassinets and baby quilts. And, yes, you can use hoops from your earlier MC 12000 or 11000 machines. 

Is is that true???

Thanks for any info you can share. 

Carole

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


Re: My 15000 App Question

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

Thank you for this info.  Very helpful!!!


Re: My 15000 Updates

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.

Re: My 15000 Updates

Mary Galea <nunkuri@...>
 

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?

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.
