Re: Embroidery Function Keys not showning

Janome has several software products sold under the "Artistic" name, so it's not clear which one you have. If it's the Artistic Digitizer software you can find tutorial videos on this page:

See page 131 in the 15000 manual for pre-Quilt Maker models, or page 141 in the Quilt Maker model. The page slider is shown in item 2 on the center of this page.


Embroidery Function Keys not showning

Hettie Lynn
 

First time for me to use the embroidery mode on my new 15000. I like to trace the design to see where it is positioned before I start stitching. The trace key, hoop back key, and both the previous color and next color section keys are not enabled. The Artistic software came with my machine and I'm not impressed. I thought I would try it since I need new software and thought I could use Artistic for what I need right now. I  added a design to my USB and it came up as defective. I had to resort to my very old outdated Digitizer software to get the design to my machine. I'm hesitant to start the embroidery without knowing why these keys don't work. I did check the built in designs and they are the same way. Wifi hasn't been enabled yet. I thought I would wait and do that later after I get used to the new machine. Thanks for any help or advice!

I received the ASQ22 hoop and it doesn't show on my machine. There are no arrows to scroll on the hoop page. Is there a way to add it?

Try a microtex needle. It’s a sharp and I use them all the time.


Re: jamone needles

We may need more information as there are different reasons why the needle break(s) happen.

Thread feed - as with all sewing the thread must feed and travel unhindered because spooling, snagging or trapping of the top thread will cause pull on the needle which makes it bend out of alignment with the hole so it misses, strikes metal and breaks.

Set up - foot properly secure, adjusted correctly for needle position, correct stitch selection

Fabric - light to medium weight 

Needle size - must be appropriate to the thickness of the accumulated layers the needle has to pierce.
With thicker fabric and deep ruffler pleats, the needle shaft has to be big enough (thick enough) so it doesn't flex or bend when it tries to pierce the layers.  Any bending or flexing will cause a needle strike and break.

Hope something helps you narrow down what's going on with your ruffling

Are you sure it is the correct ruffler for your 12000. It takes a different one than the universal one.

I have the janome 15000 quiltmaker version 3.I purchased the RE 18 hoop and have been trying to update my machine 
to recognize the hoop in the machine. The directions have me going to the janome website and the latest update for
 the 15000 is version 2.2.
Can this hoop be used with the quiltmaker 15000? If it can, how do I get the machine to recognize it?
Thanks for any help you can give me.

Re: Survey

You’re right that classes are often sales pitches for new products.  Those ones are often free at your dealer though, and they have other paid classes where you make something, usually store purchases are suggested, like for a book or pattern, etc.  That’s ok though because it’s upfront and the classes are relatively inexpensive.  They do need to stay in business. 

 

I think the biggest sales pitches are at big sewing “events”.  That’s when I bought my 15000, but I knew in advance I’d probably buy one as I had gone to two previous small events at the local dealer to play with it.  You can get a big discount if you buy in association with an event.  Sometimes you take your machine home from there.  I was lucky, I got a new, sealed, in the box one from the store, someone must have bought the one I was playing with.

 

I was surprised at that event, a Jenny Haskin’s event.  It was my first time going to a “major event”.  It was a sales pitch practically from beginning to end, for Jenny Haskin’s products and for the machine.  I’ve since found that most events are like that. 

 

I did go to a Sue Baker Serge event that was not like that at all. It was an actual wonderful class where I learned a lot.  The instructor (it wasn’t Sue Baker, just like Jenny Haskins wasn’t at the Jenny Haskin’s event) would mention some products she used to make stuff easier but it wasn’t a constant pitch.  The machines kind of sold themselves.  One tip I still use is a looped needle threader.  Works great for threading the serger and the sewing machine.  If you don’t know what I mean, search for “Dritz Looped Needle Threader

 

I have a friend that’s funny, she’s going to the same event she went to last year because they have a new guest speaker, and “there’s always something to learn”.  I asked, “What that, which new products to buy?”  lol  Of course, it’s true, they are sewing with Brother’s new big machine.  So, it is fun if you want a lot of sewing time on a machine and want to learn about the bells and whistles before you buy.  Ask before you go, how many people share a machine.  It’s really neat when you get your own, often you share with two or more people and take turns sewing on it. 

 

Um, what were we talking about?

lol

Look at these close up pictures of needles There is a some great pictures of needles there http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/17206792

I was surprised to see needles have different lengths.  I always thought it was just the eye that was bigger, not the entire length of the needle.

I did not mean to imply in any way that I did not like or care for the Quilt shop that I purchased my machines from. I love her and her staff. They are all very busy and helpful. However when certain “classes” are offered it’s more of sales

I think you needed another question, I bought my machine from a dealer who is a great mechanic and find that more important than selling fabric. Charlotte


Re: Janome Kit for Couching with Machine Embroidery Designs

SparkleFever
 

As Jim mentioned, this is a foot with accessories that are used with embroidery designs.

The machine does all the work and there isn't really the option (that I can think of) to manipulate the feed of the yarn in embroidery mode as can be done with free motion work or in sewing mode.

I suspect it's as suggested that the yarn needs to be at least a certain thickness (whatever that is) and the one I used may be too thin (although I have used the same yarn for couching with free motion work)

I should have said that I ran the machine at the slowest speed, 400spm.
This you tube video from 2:00 shows the set up and what should happen, however when I stitched out the same design, half or more of the stitches just didn't catch the yarn.  
I suspect it's as suggested that the yarn needs to be a certain thickness and the one I used may be too thin.

Someone reminded me I just push the start button instead of using the foot pedal when in embroidery mode.

I just discovered my bobbin winder does not work when I am in embroidery mode. I don't know if it has always been that way or not.  Is that normal?  I have the 12000.
