I would love any info that is relevant to both the 12000 and 15000. I know the 12000 is “old school” but there are lots of similarities and tips/tricks/etc. that are beyond the basics would be appreciated as I am still learning this machine.

Thanks!! Joyce

Your bobbin case problem is in the machine itself. Either the bobbin has a burr, or there is damage to the bobbin case and/or hook race. Any kind of burr or rough edge with catch the thread as a stitch is formed, cause the bobbin case to pull up, i.e. bounce. Usually the damage is caused by a broken needle or thread nest. Once damaged, it becomes a time bomb subject to causing even more damage if the bobbin case is pull up over the stop. Take off the needle plate and bobbin case. Inspect the bobbin case closely for damage. Examine the hook race where the bobbin case sits using a magnifying glass. Look for scratches, pits, gouges, anything that's not smooth and shiny. Also check the white plastic base on the bottom for damage. If you find anything see your dealer to get it taken care of.

I'm not sure which "this group" you are referring to. This specific group is no longer on Yahoo. All the posts from there have been imported. If you are referring to the group mentioned in the original post, it's not on Yahoo, it's on Facebook. A search there should bring it up.

Organizing and filing embroidery files.  Finding files.   I have MBXv5 but my filing system is a disaster.  I have files on my ipad, on my computer, and on USB drives.  I don't have a good system.

  Lately, I have had trouble getting through 2 layers of R-Bosal and Piping.  What is the best way to load thick fabric under the needle?  I broke two needles trying to complete this project, have I harmed  my machine?  Horizon SuiteLink is not user friendly.  MBX seems easier to use and I am new at Digitizing.  Or maybe its been to long since I have used HSL.   I really enjoy the sew a longs with Diane.  Maybe some new project video sew along to learn a new skill, or to motivate.  I maybe missing some as I have not open my ipad in awhile except to quickly refresh on how to use a new foot.   Would you be interested in developing app for thread just like you did for fabric? Thank you for all your hard work.

There is a 15000 group on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/Janome15000/) that is featuring video from a different educator each month. We have signed up for January, 2019. I know that a lot of group members here don't like Facebook. I'm not all that crazy about them using me as a product myself! So, come January, any video that posts to FB will also post here so you won't miss out. Some of the videos will be things we've already done and you've already seen, but we plan to use the intervening months to make new ones. Toward that end I'm asking for your help. Please respond to this post by supplying your answers to the following three categories:

  1. The biggest problem I have with my machine is:  (Note - please don't say the needle threader. We know, and we can't do anything about that!
  2. The biggest problem I have with my Janome software is:
  3. The biggest problem I have with my iPad is:
Your answers will guide us to making videos to address the pain points. The videos that we create, here or on FB, will be up for one week from the date they are posted in January. We'll let you know whenever a new one drops. Thanks for your help!

1. The biggest problem with the machine is the bobbin case. Sometimes whilst embroidering it makes the "funny bouncing noise". It needs to be cleaned out and reset. I've learned if transporting the machine to a class I have to be sure to retighten the foot, the needle and be sure the bobbin case is set "perfectly".
2. Software? Horizon link isn't intuitive, especially in trying to send something directly to my machine. 
3. iPad? again it isn't very intuitive but I need to work on the phot to set the embroidery feature

1.  Biggest irritation with my 15000 is fine tuning tension...it just seems to be inconsistent from project to project.  I rarely have to touch the tension on my 6600, 350E, or 500E...but always have to test and tweak it on my 15000.  I feel like I fumble my way through the process.

I am actually going to combine items 2 and 3, I find it difficult and confusing on how to move my stitch files in and out of the ipad design editing apps so that I can save them on my desktop or to my backup hard drives where I keep my design files.

1. Machine tension while embroidering seems to change.  I'll have to see my dealer about this, I know, but he's quite a distance from me and I can't make the trip now.  It seems that sometimes the thread is too tight in the tension discs.  Not sure why this happens but often shutting off the machine and turning it back on will fix the problem.  If I look at the back of an embroidery piece I can see that the 1/3 rule is only working here and there.  I get through most embroidery projects but it's annoying.  I thought it was the fact that I didn't have the right bobbin thread, needle, etc. but have concluded after much expense and with some experience, that it's the machine not me. 
2. None with Horizon Link Suite.  I do have a problem trying to figure out what software to buy to do some very basic digitizing and think that perhaps if I spent more time with either AcuEdit or Acudesign, one of them might be all I need to add/subtract/combine parts of designs, but I've not spent the time on them.
3. None.
In general the main problem I have is that the machine does so much that I keep getting distracted and going off in different directions :)

The biggest problem I have with my machine is that on some fabrics(medium weight canvas for one) the feeddogs don’t seem to advance the material consistently and so my stitches are uneven. When I sew the same fabric on my old Singer 15-91, there’s no problem. As far as I know, I have everything set up completely, but this variation in stitch length is really bugging me
