Re: 15000 V3 workbook

Lyn Quine
 

Thank you for the information I have indeed sent an email to Janome, the list of items that the British market misses out on increases.  I won’t bother trying to get a Janome branded stylus it would probably cost more, I’ll buy from Amazon.  I’ve tried using AcuSketch but fingertips aren’t the same as a stylus, I use a tablet and pen with V5 most of the time..  But sometimes  it would be good to play on the iPad.

Do you know if the V5.5 is available as an upgrade or is it just the full program?  

I feel Janome treat us like mushrooms, kept in the dark and fed on....

Digitizer MBX V5.5 is an interesting product. It apparently was ready for sale back in March of last year. Janome US & Canada released Artistic Digitizer, and there was speculation that they were abandoning MBX. That sparked Wilcom, author of MBX, to offer their own product Hatch at a reduced price. Janome America then responded that they were definitely going to have V5.5 and it was ordered. Meanwhile V5.5 has been available in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden since November (https://www.janome.dk/janome-digitizer-mbx-v5-5-nyhed/). You might consider pointing out to Janome UK that Scandanavia is a much smaller market than UK, but has a better product offering.

Regarding the stylus, it actually is available in UK for 10 quid. The only thing lacking is the Janome logo painted on it. Here's where to get it on Amazon UK:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/LIBERRWAY-Universal-Capacitive-Precision-Screens-Black/dp/B07JHP46CD/ref=sr_1_27_sspa?s=telephone&ie=UTF8&qid=1548091970&sr=1-27-spons&keywords=stylus+pen+2-in-1&psc=1
We have the same one here, also from Amazon, and it works a treat.


15000 V3 workbook

Lyn Quine
 

Hi thanks for adding me to the forum.  I’m in the UK, and I’m reading a lot about the workbook and the addendum for the V3 upgrade.  We can’t get the workbook in the UK it’s deemed there’s no market for it.  As we have never seen it, can someone tell me what it is, it is like the manual but more comprehensive or is it a book of projects?  Is it a book of different techniques, what is the workbook.  

Also so can I ask does anyone here know anything about a new upgrade for the V5 software?  I’ve been advised by someone who knows about these th8ngs that there has been an upgrade launched somewhere in the world, but I can’t find it.  Janome UK say they’ve no idea what I’m talking about, I’ve even emailed Japan asking if there will be a worldwide launch so that is Brits can buy it, but got no reply.  

To be honest a lot of us in the UK feel let down, because anything that comes out from Janome doesn’t see the UK market,  the latest software, Aritista, the Janome stylus for the iPad, and the V5 upgrade (if it exists, and I was told it will be launched in the new year........ no it hasn’t) and the workbooks, none of those have reached our shores.  If it’s because there’s no market in the UK, well if we knew it was available there might be.  Is there anyone who can shed some light on it please,

Agree with all your suggestion.  Here is what I did with so many shirts to be included....

Absolutely back t-shirts
I personally like sashing as it gives definitions to each shirt. 
My son had SOOO many shirts he wanted included...so to get the most “bang for the buck”, this is his quilt I just finished. Might give you some ideas...just say’in’

Quilt Maker Ver 3 Manuals and Workbooks

Thank you!

My dealer has a class for the updates but I was babysitting for a great grandson & could not attend.  This is so great.

Life's biggest decision is what you do with Jesus.

The Quilt Maker manual is available as a PDF download: http://www.janome.com/siteassets/products/machines/embroidery/mc15000v2/inst-book-mc15000-quilt-maker-update.pdf

The “My 15000” app has been updated with the new feet for some time, as has the FootBook app.


Re: T-shirt Blanket

Barbara Anderson <Bander6477@...>
 

The last one I made as a rag quilt with designs on both sides.  I didn’t use any interfacing.  One layer of flannel.


New Machine?

J Fraker
 

Does anyone know if Janome is going to have a new embroidery machine out any time soon?  If so, any idea of new features?


Re: AcuStitch for Windows

Jim Stutsman
 

We’re waiting for ours in the US as well. Janome seems to be having some schizophrenia regarding software, since this new offering is Windows-only. That comes right on the heels of them proudly offering a MacBook Air with the Quilt Maker machine, while pushing the apps for iPad. I understand the problem, as there is currently no cross-platform solution that would allow developing software once and using it on all 3 devices. However Apple is actively working on a solution that would make it very easy to port iOS software to macOS. We’re expecting to see this further explained at WWDC this summer.

AcuStitch for Windows

L.C. Northcutt
 

Hi Everyone form the UK!
Just wondering if anyone has purchased this yet? (Part No. 202-419-008).
We are still awaiting delivery here and have no idea of price.
Looks a little like our Horizon Link but a possible improved "Stitch Composer"?
I would be so interested in hearing about any information so far.
Grateful thanks,
Cathy.


Re: Digitizer MBX 4.5 lost cloth setter markings

Jane Spearey
 

Thanks so much for your help. After playing around and making a new template, I realised my mistake was that my print preview did not have a whole object inside the hoop area, and that as soon as I put my "handy notes" inside the hoop, my cloth setter marking was shown. I have an oval to place patterns inside for card making that has to be moved 45 degrees to sew out, along with reminders to myself in lettering to check fabric and move the shape etc..  So as usual it was operator error!  But it was your help that gave me the clue, so thanks again.

I'm shooting in the dark on this one. My best guess is that it's related to the template file used to create your new designs. See page 100 in the manual for that. You may be able to fix it by:
1. Create a new empty design using "File -> New" from the menu.
2. Choose the NORMAL template.
3. Open the problem design. Select all (CTRL-A), copy (CTRL-C), and then paste (CTRL-V) in the new design.
4. If that gives you the markings do "File -> Save As" to save the corrected version.

If anyone else has had this problem, how did you fix it?


Re: Quilt Maker Ver 3 Manuals and Workbooks

Lyn Quine
 

You should have got a booklet with your upgrade to V3 that explains all the feet and their functions, which would be the addition to your manual.

there is a workbook available but only in the US if you are anywhere else in the world apparently there’s no market for it!  

I thought the quilters kit was part of the 15000 already via Horizon Link again you should have received an updated copy of it with your upgrade.  I thought the quilters kit was an add on for the 12000 and maybe (not sure) the 14000.  


Re: Quilt Maker Ver 3 Manuals and Workbooks

Sandie Williamson <stitchin211@...>
 

I called my dealer yesterday about the same question- I wanted a manual for updated 15000 & my responder  said I can get a manual via pdf for no charge that's for the updated 15000.
I had found the Quiltmaker workbook on Amazon for $59.95 that's workbook that includes addendum, not manual & I see those as separate but both as important. I also have the triplicate for iPad use only- My15000, Footbook & Quilt....(can't recall full name of third one.
Jim can tell you whether 'My15000' includes updated Quiltmaker or not.

Pixey,
I am in GA, near Atlanta and have an in-the-cabinet amazing machine that was given to me that needs a home. It sews wonderfully and does not do runaway sewing. If you can pick it up, it's yours. Just lmk.
