Re: Thread stand

Cheryl Paul
 

Hmm! I guess we Canadians need to do something to keep warm on our VERY SHORT winter days and LONG nights, besides cuddle! It is 9:15 am was sunrise and it will set at 4:58 tonight - aren’t we lucky. We’ll make up for that in the 6 months when the opposite happens. Imagine in my working days, that I left the house in the pitch dark and returned home at the end of the day in the dark as well - and we are on Daylight Savings Time ALL year long - we never turn our clocks backwards or forwards anymore for well over 40 years now.

I’m not going to send a picture of the thread stand attached - my sewing room is a MESS, big time. When you receive yours, you’ll know what I’m talking about. You almost need the 3D effect which a photo just doesn’t do justice to. I loosen the 2 screws on the back of the machine - below where the handle rests. I haven’t had one fall out yet and I haven’t taken one out completely either - they must really be long as they aren’t even shaking in their boots once loosened. I am careful though “just in case”. I do sometimes tighten the screws slightly as I need to use a few “sewing words”, if I pull the telescope part up and the whole stand ends up in my hands or falling from my hands, making noise, or worse still a mess or breaking something behind my machine. I don’t tighten to much as then I have to undo to much when I want to remove the stand.

Travel safely in the holidays. A Blessed Christmas to all. Enjoy your turkey dinner or whatever, your tradition. I’ll be turkey’d out by boxing day and craving it on the 27th - and my kids will have all the turkey at their house as they are cooking this year. I’m told that tonights dinner will be cooked by our 13 year old grandson and 11 year old granddaughter. The 13 year old granddaughter, and cousin of the young chef’s informed me that we are having HAMBURGERS tonight - she almost seemed discussed by that thought - isn’t it interesting how children perceive things and give us a different perspective on life. I’ve found it also exciting to see how my 13 grandchildren are growing up and starting to make their mark on the world. We have pianists, a teacher, Scottish Dancers, Baton Twirlers, hockey and ringette players, baseball, and fastball players, Scouts, a saxophone, clarinet and trumpet player, guitar wanna be’s and I can’t forget our Masters Trombone son in law in that mix or and the singers too - quite a mix don’t you think. Grandpa is an old trapper and he’s out today to check his snares and traps to make sure no fur goes to waste.

Re: Artistic Digitizer Software Update

Jim Stutsman
 

I'm not seeing the issue on my iMac 27" screen. Our version is 1.0.8856 and Artistic says it's up to date. This could be a bug that only shows up on certain screen sizes or OS versions. We're on Mojave, 10.14.2. Try shutting the computer down (completely turned off) in case it's a temporary hardware glitch. If that doesn't work you'll need tech support, which probably won't be available for the next day or two. When asking for support, in addition to your screen shot be sure to provide the Artistic version (Menu: Artistic -> About Artistic, version & build) as well as your macOS version (Apple icon: About this Mac).


Artistic Digitizer Software Update

I just had an update for my Janome Artistic Digitizer Software. Everything relaunched fine except now the new file window is stuck in the lower left corner of the app window. I can’t grab the title bar and I can’t scroll. It’s the same in full screen view. Anyone else have this issue or is this my price for being an early adopter?! I am on a Mac and running Mojave OS. I am new to this software and new to embroidery. 

Thank you,
Marsha

I also screwed the screws into the back of the machine till they are secure but not tight and then I hang the thread stand on them. I did the same thing with my 9900 .... hmm.... maybe it is a Canadian thing .... See a hole .... screw something into it and hang something on it .....

It is easily hung from the handle of the machine so just as easily removed for transport,

Gail,

The thread stand for the 12000/15000 is a screw on type, however, it is made in such a away that you can hang it on the handle and just not bother to screw it on. What I do with mine is open the screws and hang mine on to the screws and sometimes I just don’t bother to tighten those screws, so it still comes off easily, IF I want to take it off to go to a class. My sewing tech almost had “heart failure” when he saw what I was doing as he thought I’d “lose a screw” - we both know that I was short that “screw” already.

Cheryl,
I have ordered the stand and I want to hang it on the handle.  Could you send a picture of how you do this?

I use Zip Viewer which I think was a free ap. I then store pdf files in iBooks.

Thanks everyone. I just transferred the activation from my desktop to my laptop. I have not heard back from Janome and probably won't for a while. At least this way I get to use the program. :-)

I use it on my 15000!


Re: Thread stand

Carole Schneider
 

I have one that looks identical. Had it for my 11,000 and now have it attached to my 500e. I use it a lot. Mostly when using thread cones. Maybe it doesn’t fit as well for the15,000???

Re: iPad question

Jim, One more time hats off to you. I have used my iPad (thoroughly) for a long time. I have tried and used a couple of file utility apps. This documents app somehow got by me, well NO MORE it is simply a single solution for a handful of apps I have been using. I love this app it helps my productivity from my iPad in an amazing way. Thank you again for your great suggestions and lessons.


Thread stand

Theresa Lindal
 

I have a 15000 and use my Martha Pullen thread stand and turn it so it is vertical to my machine on the right side.  A little awkward but it works for me, didn’t want to buy a new one.

I used to use the clothsetter for the 350e and for the 11000se. I discovered that the arm that holds the crosshairs is not accurate because it moves. I agree about chasing the hoop so what I started using the shelf liner that is non-skid. I place the hoop on the shelf liner and it does not slide around.

Gail,

I have that stand (it’s here, barely used, and I have its box),and would love to sell it.  In looking at the picture of the back of the box, the only part I do not have is small the thread guide.  Otherwise, the box contents are complete.  If I recall, I did one embroidery project with it.  
I also have the Circular Sewing Attachment for the 15000, and would love to sell it, too.  It has never been used.  I did attached it to my 15000 once, so it is the correct one for the 15000, but I never used it.  
Grand plans for both, zero follow through on my part. 😩. 
The photo shows the back of the spool stand box.  Both are real Janome items.
If you (or anyone else)  have an interest in acquiring, I can be reached via email at Pibby357@....  
BTW, I am in Reno, NV.

Foot Tread Cutter on 15000

Gail
 

I brought my 15000 in for service and one of the problems I mentioned was that the foot pedal thread cutter stopped working.  I got a call saying I needed a new foot cutter module and it was ordered and installed.  I picked up the machine today and when I set it up, I still get the error message on the screen saying "Foot Pedal Thread Cutter Can't be Used" and it doesn't work..  I have called the service people, but it's almost a 2 hour drive each way and they are closed all next week.  Does anyone have any suggestions or have you seen this before?

I may just take the cutter off the foot pedal, but I just paid for it.
