AcuFil Program

Dottie Newkirk
 

This has probably been addressed before, but, I've been unable to find it. 

I was going to use my AcuFil program for the first time (used it once several years ago on the 11K) on my 15K.

When I open the program, I can't find/see a way to change the size from mm to inches.  

Hoping someone can help.  TIA  Dottie in Texas

Thank you Cynthia! After looking at your blog I just remembered that we communicated via email last year about purchasing 15000's. 
Yes, getting good curves is a challenge in Stitch Composer. I've discovered that sometimes you have to make the stitch pattern longer than you think you need it in order to get the right proportions and curves. For example if I'm using a background image of a stitch I stretch it out longer than it's original size.

Your stitches are absolutely gorgeous!!  I have been playing also and I love this program.  I like to digitize, so it kind of throws me when I can't get an exact curve in the program.  Just do my best!

What to use Stitch Composer for? Oh my! The possibilities are endless for a person who loves decorative stitches. I have even designed stitches for purposes that the machine doesn't have already. Such as; a 5mm long straight stitch that stitches 5 times on itself, kind of like the Triple Stitch except more! The stitches you create don't have to be decorative per se. I have made some of my own applique blanket stitches to suit the look that I want on a project, and I made an improved French Knot, better than the built in on our machines.
I used to have "another" brand of sewing machine that had some beautiful stitches on it. I have copied some of them in Stitch Composer.

That’s what I needed—inspiration! I don’t know which one I like the best. I need to do a sample stitch book of the gazillion decorative stitches in the 15000 and take it from there.

Thanks so much for sharing!

Yes that is frustrating.     I try to wind a couple extra bobbins or I’ll get out my small machine and wind them while in embroidery mode.

I know that. I didn't mean while it was embroidery. I just meant when it is in embroidery mode as opposed to regular sewing mode. If I run out of bobbin while I'm doing a design, I don't want to have to switch back to regular sewing mode just to wind a bobbin. Going to see my dealer soon.

The 12000 does not have an independent bobbin winder, so it cannot be used while the machine is sewing nor embroidering.

 


Re: Bobbin winder

J Fraker
 

That did it.  How did I not know that after all this time???  I've had a separate bobbin winder, but it finally quit working, so I guess I just always used it.  Anyway, many thanks.  Sure am glad to have this group.

Re: Sliding guide foot

Vikki Youngmeyer
 

The parts look very similar, and could have just been packaged incorrectly. Return the 7mm one and physically check that the new one is slightly larger. A lot of times Janome sends these parts out in bulk, and it is up to the staff in the store to package them properly. Stuff happens and parts aren’t packaged properly.

That foot comes in two sizes. Part #202218005 is for 7mm machines. You need part #202293004 for 9mm machines.

jemartin2000 <jemartin2000@...>
 

I have the quiltmaker 15000. Version 3. I bought the 9mm sliding guide foot.  The slot to attach the foot is too narrow. Is this foot suppose to work with machine? What am I doing wrong? Thank you for any help.


Re: Threading the machine when it's off

Thank you, Jim!  That was helpful as it's usually embroidery mode that this applies to for me.


Re: Bobbin winder

Jim Stutsman
 

The bobbin winder should work in all modes. If yours doesn't you should have your dealer take a look at it.

Diane has confirmed this morning that the "Lock Stitch" button is the exact same button as "Finish", but with a different label. It functions the same. I will update the video to include this explanation.
