Jim and Diane, this is an excellent video.  I use Notes for other things, but this takes it to a new level.  I saved the video to the reading list on my iPad.  Now, I can view the video there and do not need to be on wifi.  Thank you for putting this together.  We learn so much from you.  Well done!

How to turn off emails?

Hi Jim:
Can you tell me how I can turn off the emails from the group?
I checked in my Account but I don't see where to stop postings from being sent to my email.
Thanks,
Julia

The "Notes" app has never worked for me.  When I open it, it just says folders at the top of the page and there is absolutely nothing to click on anywhere else on the page.  I also wanted this app, so I can jot things down to remember during the day.  I deleted the app.  

I just now went and reloaded it after watching your video and it just does the same thing.  Do you know if I am doing something wrong?  I checked my settings and I think I have everything correct.  Thank you so much Jim, for all you do!

Re: USB drive with R18 hoop

MaryAnn,

The RE18 Essentials Hoop Kit that I purchased came in a box with the complete hoop including  template, and a USB stick (thumb drive) containing embroidery designs inside, and possibly some documents...not sure.   Since it is possible to purchase 'replacement' hoops, it 'may' be possible to purchase a 'replacement' RE18 hoop and/or template alone (not in the Kit), but I have no information on that at all...so very sorry.  If you purchased the RE18 Essentials Kit in the box but did not remove a USB stick, if you still have the box, you might want to look inside it.  I seem to recall that the USB stick was 'tucked in' somewhere in the box to keep it safe during transport, but I believe the box said on the outside what was inside the box, and I remember looking for the USB stick (mine was fairly small...red in color, I think...I can look, just not right now), then looking through the box to make sure everything was removed.  I do still have the box stored as well, but I removed everything from the box a few years ago when I bought it.   I don't know if any of this helps.

I bought the R18 hoop and love it....but was never told about any files that it should have come with?  I live in Canada....but I should still have received it?  Can anyone tell me where I could find these?
Thanks.

I have the number of the usb drive on mine and the files were corrupt.  I would love to get them as I paid full price for the hoop and the designs.

Thanks

The files I got from Janome with my RE18 hoop were JEF files.  They are not for digitizing, however, we could alter them in Digitizer if we chose to do so.  They should open with no problem on the computer and I think also in the 15000.  I’m not sure about the sewing machine as I didn’t try that - I just copied them over onto my computer.

 

If they don’t work for some, perhaps someone here could copy them over and send them to you in an email, but ONLY if you’ve purchased the hoop.  It would be a copy write infringement to just give the designs away.

Re: Facebook echo Week 4

Last year Diane and I were thinking about a new app for managing sewing projects. We thought it should allow for taking notes quickly and easily, on either iPhone or iPad, written or spoken. It would need to allow scanning of instructions and then making notes on the scanned image for any changes you might have made. Project photos would be a must, including video if appropriate. As we worked up the list I began preparing for a major effort to develop this app, figuring it would take at least a year. Fortunately I did a bit more research and discovered that Apple has already done the work and the app is available right now. So instead of creating an app we have produced a video showing how to use it with your sewing projects. This will be our last instructional video for the Facebook group. Thanks so much for all your views and comments!

I have experienced this same shredding when doing embroidery. The thread was shredding just like your picture and it was showing the bobbin thread on the top. I was using Mettler 40 weight polyester embroidery thread and a size 11 organ needle.

Also, if you have TruSizer only it won't open EMB files, Claire S.

Your machine can’t read an .emb file that is the design file for editing in software before saving a copy as a machine file.  Assuming you have a Janome machine it will need to be saved as a .jef, or for the 12 and 15000 .jef or .jpx.  Most Janomes will also read .dst but you will need the colour chart as .dst doesn’t hold colour information, it defaults to the colour charts held on the machine,

Re: USB drive with R18 hoop

Looks like we have some runaway confusion building here, so I will attempt to clarify the clarification. The problem is that posts in this thread are using the letters "emb" in two different contexts:

The original post was about the free designs included with the RE18 hoop, and that they could not be opened in the MC15000. Some people could, some could not. Cat posted a list of the files contained on that USB stick, which showed a large number of designs in the EMB folder. A follow-up post was made stating that files in emb format cannot be opened in the machine. This is a true statement, but it is not related to the original post. Unfortunately those 3 letters have different meanings depending on where they appear.

EMB as a folder name on a USB stick is a convention on the Janome machines starting with the 11000. It is a top-level folder that contains at least one folder inside it called EmbF. This folder will be created on any USB drive plugged into the machine, if it is not already there. By default it is the one first opened on the 15000 when you choose to open a design on USB, but on the 15000 you can use the keys on the screen to go to other folders.

.emb as the extension on a file name is the default for embroidery designs created in Wilcom digitizers. Such files cannot be opened by the machine, but must first be exported to JEF, JEF+, or JPX in order for the machine to open them. Again, this applies only to the names of design files, NOT folder names like the EMB on a USB drive.

Going back to the original post, I checked to see if we had the elusive designs from our purchase of RE18. Apparently we do not, or if we did we did not save them. As I recall they were not "world class", and the main appeal was that they were free.

The R18 has an EMB folder which contains files in the formats required for your machine to read.  I’m not sure, I can’t remember and I’m nowhere near my computer to check, but I think there maybe some .emb files on the USB for editing, I may be wrong it’s a while since I looked at it and I may be confusing with a completely different USB or list of files.  I know Janome put s9me in the V5 software.

 If you Create in Hatch a .emb file that is the editable design file, it cannot be read by your machine, you have to save it as a stitch file a .jef. Or .jpx. Or .dst I think the emb file and EMB folders have got muddled in previous posts I know I got confused.  

Always save the design file as a .emb don’t overwrite it as a stitch file.  The .emb is fully editable the stitch file is limited for editing.

Cat,
Just to be clear, are you saying that if I have a file that I've created in Hatch2 (EMB file) that I don't have to convert it to .jef in  order for the 15000 to read it?

Re: RE18 hoop

About 8 years ago I ordered a little metal safebox from Staples for my grandson who like to save his pennies.  It for some reason was shipped from CA and arrived with the warning label.  I tried to find out what it was about, even calling a CA store that sold the item.  They said that almost everything they sold had "those stickers" on them and that they had no idea what it meant.  CA has very, very strict laws on what may or may not cause cancer and this label would not have been on items sold in other states. I searched over and over and made several phone calls and never came up with a satisfactory answer.  If that item had been shipped from any other state at that time it would not have had that label.  One of the people in CA finally said that "everyone ignores thos labels because they're on everything."  I wish I had a clear answer to this.
