I have the manual as well but not the workbook!  If you find out where to purchase this, I would love to know.
Thanks,
Karen

I bought mine off eBay but it came from Pocono Sew  & Vac in Stroudsburg, PA 18360. 567 Main Street, (507)421-4580. It is the latest version so you don't need to buy the addendum.


Re: Storage question

Jim Stutsman
 

This is an interesting question. As far as the "shelf life" of a machine is concerned, if it's kept in a cool, dry environment it should be essentially unlimited. There may be some small changes. I am reminded of the issue of the covers of the Memory Craft 10000, almost 20 years ago. Most people kept them in a dark closet, since the machine was in frequent use. When pulling out the cover they were surprised to see that the ivory color was almost lemon yellow. Some facet of the plastic caused it to change color when kept in the dark. If exposed to full sun it would eventually drift back toward white, but would not stay that way if stored in the dark again.

I can get behind the storage idea for two scenarios: 1) If Janome completely stops innovating, or new machines are relentlessly worse than those that went before. This can happen from time to time with new models, but it's definitely not a trend. Janome R&D does a pretty good job of improving the products through each iteration.  2) If Janome quits making machines entirely. Back in the early 90s it was predicted that the number of sewing machine companies would decline to the point that only 1 or 2 were left. That hasn't happened, but there has been a significant decline in the strength of the brands, specifically Pfaff and Singer. The big players now are Brother and Janome, in that order.

If it were me, I would probably not do it. Most machines today have embedded computers, and computer technology continues to evolve to levels we never dreamed of. Today I might wish that I'd bought an Apple 1 and put it "on ice", but only because it would have tremendous resale value as an antique. From a functional standpoint it would be nearly useless. Sewing machines are not quite to that level of development, but they have gotten much better over the years. From the standpoint of the machine manufacturers, given the price of the top of line machines, they only way to keep going is to keep making big improvements to encourage upgrades.


Storage question

Pixey
 

This is probably a Jim question but welcome others perspective as well...
What is the life of a sewing machine that is kept in the box in a climate controlled storage unit?

As background, I currently have a 6600P that I love for sewing. But, it is 10 years old and gets moderately heavy use as my go-to sewing machine (especially anything involving dual feed...the new Accufeed Flex system and I do NOT have a good relationship). I know that Janome has recently retired it in favor of the new 6700P, but I do not like it as well as my 6600P. I am pondering whether I should get a second, back-up machine before the back stock runs out and put it in storage until the day something happens with mine and it cannot be repaired. But I did not know if there is a natural “decay” process that I need to be aware of, hence my opening question.

Thanks,
Pixey

saving from Emblink solved!

ok forget last topic or copy and pste this to it please:

after 'stepping' away long enough to write the email, I went back, and figured out that i have to be in  "Edit" mode to save!!!


EmbLink save design on PC

Nyssa Lanzafame
 

Hello, 
Can i save a design that I fussed with on the machine...then decided that I really needed a knockdown stitch for, so that means getting it to the PC.  so I went to the PC and opened emblink...and successfully 'received' the design from Emblink.  However, the save buttons are light grey and cannot be clicked  :(  i really want to save it so that I can open it in a program that will let me add the knockdown stitches.  Any ideas?
TIA!

I purchased the workbook for $49.99. It is amazing to me, step by step projects to use all the features this machine has, what feet to use, what needle plate, positioning, etc. This workbook is not a manual. It covers quilting, sewing embroidery, the Ipad, the link etc. I inherited the Janome 15000MC and there is no one near me to go for lessons or help. This workbook was the answer for me. I have heard of the pen, not seen it and have not heard of an upgrade. I am in the USA


Re: question

The Janome Acu suite, a lot some of them are free but you pay for Acudesign is for the iPad/iphone


Re: question

Jim Stutsman
 

Our 15000 app requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. We don't do Android, which your Samsun tablet uses, or laptops.


question

itsatweetything
 

The apps that are available for the 15,000.  What kind of device do you need to download them?
I have a Samsung tablet, but nothing available. And would it be better to have a tablet 
or a laptop?

The user manual is not the Workbook, it's the book that came with your machine and can be downloaded free from the Janome website. If you type into your browser search engine, "Janome 15000 Manual" it will bring up some links where you can download it to your computer. It's in the Janome Support section of the site.
The manual can also be put on your tablet to take it with you! Be aware there's more than one version of the manual available, so get the one for your machine.


Re: Opening designs in HLSuite

Carole O'Mara
 

Still won’t open designs.   I got to Open With - Choose default program.  “Use this App for all .jef files” and that is checked and clicked on HL.  Message - this app can’t run on your PC.  I also followed the instructions in the link you sent but still get the same messages.  

I uninstalled HL when I got the 15000 and installed HLSuite.  The icon for HLS is the machine with a blue zig zag.  I remember the HL was the machine with a red zig zag.  All my designs have the red zig zag—but I can open them once I open HLS.  

I’m thinking I should uninstall HLS and reinstall it.  Maybe that will reset everything.  If not, I can still get to the designs but it’s a couple of extra steps.

Thanks for your help.  
Carole





Re: Opening designs in HLSuite

Jim Stutsman
 

Windows is only able to associate one program with a given file type. When you installed Horizon Link Suite (HLS) it should have become the default to open embroidery files, at least those in JEF or JPX format. However if you installed Horizon Link (HL) AFTER installing HLS, then it became the default. If HL was subsequently uninstalled, then the association with HLS is lost. Try this:
  1. Open the folder with the designs you're having trouble with.
  2. RIGHT CLICK on one of the designs.
  3. From the menu that pops up, choose "Open With".
  4. In the next screen choose HLS and check the box that says "Always open with this program".
That usually will set things right. If not, see this page for more detailed steps: https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/how-to-change-file-associations/

Opening designs in HLSuite

Carole O'Mara
 

All my designs were purchased when I had the 12000.  Now, have 15000.  All designs are in folders on my computer and have the HL icon next to them.  When I open the folder and select a design, it does not open in HL.  I have to open HLSuite, Edit embroidery designs, view emb, click on the design and it opens it.  Why don't they open in HLSuite automatically?  I remember with the 12000 that I was able to do that.
thanks,
Carole


Re: foot workbook

Sandie Williamson <stitchin211@...>
 

Jim & Diane offer the FootBook that is for use with iPhone & iPad only. It can be purchased singly or in a bundle with 'My15000' & 'Quilt in the Hoop', which is iPad only use.
I have spent long periods with FootBook & My15000 & highly recommend both. I've spent little time to date with 'Quilt in the Hoop' but fully expect that part of the bundle will be rated highly just like the others. 
 
Separately, you can get an updated manual (if your machine has been upgraded) from your dealer at no charge which includes all updates and you'll get a pdf link. It's 198 pages but not workbook. Its detail is helpful.
 
Also, I have recently become aware of 'Quiltmaker MC15000 Workbook' that includes another book, the addendum- there's no need to buy addendum because it is included in the workbook. Amazon offers it @$59.95- I don't own it- (only aware of its existence). 
 
The MC15000 is sufficiently complex that I'm open to having each & every aide in learning all its secrets & at some point, I'll not need their help with each step but so far, I'm a 100% needy 15000 user. 
Enjoy all the aides that help master our machines & I hope these items help you master your MC15000.

Re: Which E-Mail to Use?

Lyn Quine
 

I have several email accounts.  A general one for using on websites and anything thats not important.  Another on a separate host for finance and PayPal (no utilities on it, banks and credit cards and PayPal only.  I have others too for forums etc.  I keep them separate then there’s less chance of being hacked.  If they’re going to hack anything it will benthhe general one, that is used around the web on various websites, that’s one of 3 I have on hotmail.  I’ve had hotmail accounts for years and it’s always been ok, I think I was hacked once and that was probably my fault. For being onan open WiFi, at an airport.  I now use a VPN to hide behind, which makes it more difficult to hack.
