Re: Using a USB extension cord

Since we're discussing cables....could a USB "hub" be used to keep two embroidery machines constantly connected to the same computer?

As mentioned late last year, we have agreed to do some videos for the "Janome 15000 FB virtual guild" group on Facebook. Our 4-week run starts today and I have just uploaded the first video to YouTube. It's a sampling of the videos we have in our FootBook app, so if you already have that app it will be a rerun. Between the time we agreed to do this and the actual date Diane had a fall that broke her right wrist. After surgery and weeks of ongoing physical therapy she's regaining use of her dominant hand, but has not yet been able to do much sewing. As a consequence we have been working with existing projects and footage to create new material. As these are developed you will see them here.

In theory, yes. (I want to live in Theory - everything works there!) However some devices are not "hub friendly". I have used a hub to connect a single machine, but not multiple. A lot of it depends on the software in the computer. It looks for a specific identifier to locate the machine in the USB hierarchy. If both machine are the same, say 15000 and 15000, you might not get the one you want when connecting.

Thank you! I don't have iPad so I'm glad to be able to watch on YouTube.

Hi, and congratulations on your new 11000!!

I am not an 'expert' but I got a pre-owned 11000 at the beginning of 2015, and a 15000 in early 2016.   My 11000 was already upgraded by a dealer to v.2 by the dealer so it was the equivalent of an 11000 SE when I got it. I upgraded it myself as soon as I got it to v.3.0 (I purchased the kit), and then to v.3.1, which is the highest possible for the 11000.  The upgrades are not difficult but what the machine can be upgraded to depends on the current version level.

i.e.:

If at v.1 now, you would need to talk to a dealer about v.2 (to upgrade it to be 'like' the 11000 SE), since hardware needs to be installed. 

If at v.2 now, the v.2.1 update is free for download on the Janome Support Machines 11000 website, but that is the highest without the v.3.0 kit, which would need to be purchased. You may need to ask a dealer about that kit.

If at v.3.0 now, v.3.1 is a simple download free from the Janome Support Machines 11000 website...instructions are included for download. 

V.3.1 is the highest level. ‎There is a driver you will need, too...also free from Janome. If you have Customizer, depending on the version you have, there is an update for it, too. 


So, when you turn the machine on, what version does it show on the display?


About designs, ‎just search for embroidery designs or whatever design you are looking for...you will find tons of them...find the ones you want, pay, and download.  You will need to get the design onto the 11000 either by USB drive or USB cable from the computer. There are two other ways that I know of but those are the most common. 

The embroidery design websites vary...some‎ you may like more than others, many have specials and sales, sime offer samples to stitch out to see if you like the digitizer's (human's or software's) work in your machine, etc...a lot of purchasing designs is very personal preference...LOL

Re: Tension

What about removing the piece before the tension, where you first place the thread, don't know name for it.  Think someone mentioned the latest machine, Quiltmaker 15K, you can't remove that. Claire S.

Try flossing out the tension. Fold a narrow strip of fabric in half. Lock the machine. Put the folded edge into the tension slot and floss it back and forth. Hopefully that will dislodge the debris that's in the tension causing inconsistent tension. If that fails you probably need to see your dealer.

V.1 is what i have. Thanks

Re: Tension

Jim Stutsman
 

Page 159 in the V1 & V2 15000 manual shows how to do this. It should be noted that debris in this area normally causes an increase in tension, causing bobbin thread to appear on top. Model 15000 machines that were built as Quilt Maker (V3) do not have a removable cover and cannot be cleaned this way.

I just posted this project to Facebook, so I'm putting it up here as well. It's a simple one, which was one of our Christmas gifts that year.

It didn't work for me. It started & then gave me an error message.

It may be too large a file for your ISP. This often happens if you are on satellite internet. Unfortunately I can’t do anything to fix that.

Jim: Would it be okay to zip it?
I just downloaded the pdf okay but then zipped it to compress the file. I can put that in the file if that helps those who have slow internet.
Just a thought.

 I have the Quilt Binder and use it. Took patience while learning but practicing on smaller squares till I got the hang
of doing the corners. Watching the video on the apps helped a lot.
Diane has certainly been through a lot and I wish her a speedy full recovery.

Re: Using a USB extension cord

That looks like the wrong cable. It has two male ends.

I think you need something like this with a male end and a female end. The male end goes into the computer, and your USB stick goes into the other side:

Thanks Jim for setting up the database. I've moved my remaining items to the Database.

Re: Facebook Echo

I did that. Surprisingly it's actually slightly bigger when zipped! The problem is most likely due to the images. I will create a low-res version for the bandwidth impaired.

Re: Facebook Echo

Jim Stutsman
 

I have created a much smaller file with lower resolution images. It should download without problem.

Feel Better Diane, the video re-run was great! Love all of the apps I could listen to that “voice” all day long.
