The bobbins with rubber infusion don't flex any more than the plain ones, but I can feel a difference when sliding a finger over the surface of the bobbin. The rubber-infused ones are not quite a slick, which is the intent. It makes the bobbin a little more "grippy" in the bobbin case.

The prohibition on using metal bobbins in a top-loading Janome machine stems from the magnet holding the bobbin case in place. Plastic bobbins are immune to the pull of the magnet, but metal bobbins could drag a bit, resulting in slightly increased bobbin tension. Over the years I had MANY customers that used metal and plastic bobbins interchangeably, most because a particular bobbin might already be wound with the needed thread color. None had any machine problems as a result. A metal bobbin won't make your machine blow up, and it may not produce any effect you can observe. However if you have a vast collection of metal bobbins salvaged from great-grandma's box of sewing stuff retrieved from the barn, and they are coated with a generous patina of rust, chuck them out!

And while we're on the subject of bobbins, let's address those precious "rainbow" bobbins in your sewing cabinet. You know, the ones that have 5 different colors of thread wound on them because you couldn't find an empty one when you needed it. The amount of money saved by doing this is almost certainly not worth the time lost fiddling with them. Money spent on empty bobbins is always a good investment!

I bought a box of pink Janome bobbins and a box of blue supposedly so I could tell apart the cotton and poly thread (but you can really tell just by looking at the thread).  Anyway, the pink have the J and the blue do not.  I put them behind my back and felt them to see if they had a different "flex" or if I could tell them apart by how they feel and I could not.  They look the same except for the J and they both work the same.  I've never had a problem with class 15 bobbins and have an assortment dating back to the 80's. After the discussions about the so-called superior J bobbins I went through my collection and found a few with the J but most do not have it.  I even found one with a "9" or "6" on it.  I have a prewound pack of Janome bobbins that don't have the J. Some do tend to have a very slight curve towards the center and others do seem flat but they all seem to work well.  When I first had my MC6000 (New Home) in the late 80's I even used metal bobbins in it before I found out several years ago that this was a no-no.  I would never put a metal bobbin in my 15000 but I never had a problem with the 6000 and it still runs like a dream (but no more metal bobbins!)

The bobbins marked with 'B' are genuine Janome, but were made before they started infusing the plastic with rubber. There may be some J bobbins like that as well. I don't know if the J stamp was done for the rubber-infused ones, or if it was in use before that. No suggestions - just use and enjoy!

Bobbin question

Lorrie Gauthier
 

I did read the thread about the bobbins with J on them so I started looking through mine. I have a million. Most are blank but I do have some that look similar to the J but they have a B on them. The edges on the J & B look more flat on the edges than the others.

Any suggestions? 


Re: while embroidering machine stops after 10 stitches

Jim Stutsman
 

Once you push the START button the machine is being controlled by the embroidery design, so this is probably due to a stop that is embedded in the design. You didn't say which machine this is on, but some (e.g. 15000) have a one-stitch stop option for use with quilting designs. However when that option is turned on you literally get one stitch before it stops. If this is a multi-hoop design, which needs to be lined up, there's a good chance that the designer built in a stop after the alignment marks get stitched. That's about all I can offer with the information you provided.

Set up a new design and began stitching, but the stitching stops after about 10 stitches, then I need to push the start button again.. no message on the screen to indicated why..any suggestions?


Re: Janome 15000 cabinet

I don't have a cabinet for my machine.  I use a BEKANT desk from IKEA.  It's part of their office furniture range and can be raised and lowered as needed.

I bought the largest size 160cm x 80cm (72 in x 32 in) with oak veneer top and white legs, with manual adjustment for £150 https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/products/desks/office-desks/bekant-desk-oak-veneer-white-spr-39022807/- but you can get more expensive versions that have electric adjustment.

I have mine set at the lowest height of 65cm - about 26 in (which puts the machine sewing surface at just the right height for me being short) but it can go up to 85cm - about 34 in - the electric sit/stand versions will actually go to a height of 125cm (50 in).

They also have a 10yr guarantee and are very sturdy.  I have mine on carpet and don't have any problems regarding vibration.

Re: WiFi Connection

Jim Stutsman
 

An IP address is four numbers, separated by dots. Your machine's IP must have the same first 3 numbers as the computer's IP in order to be found. Some routers support a "guest" network, which allows visitors to use your network without having access to your stuff. It's possible that the machine is on a guest network, rather than the computer's network. If the IP numbers match (first 3), then the WiFi antenna may not have been reconnected after the A board replacement. Your dealer should be able to take care of that. Before leaving the store make sure that your machine can be reached on the dealer's network. Hopefully they have one.

I ordered the Sylvia Design Model 2600 from Sewing Machines Plus.  I LOVE it!  It fits the big machine perfectly, is very easy to raise and lower, the height is adjustable, and I got the optional cabinet insert that fits under the drawer on the left side.  I have tons of storage space and the rear leaf lets me handle large quilts with no problem.

I have had the Horn Superior cabinet for a few years now. When I bought it I was told it was the only Horn that fitted a 15000. I have been very pleased with it.

WiFi Connection

Gail
 

I picked up my machine from having service yesterday and the A board was replaced.  When I set it up, I had to reconfigure the wifi settings.  No problem. I did it as usual and got the notice that I was connected to my network, but my computer cannot find the machine.  Now, the computer is right side of the machine and worked fine before.  I'm showing 3 bars on the machine and hadn't had a problem in the past.  I tried a number of times with no luck.  I searched for my network again and redid the whole thing with the sane results.  I rebooted my network and still no change.

Now, this worked perfectly before so I'm thinking I'm missing something.  Any suggestions?

Thank"s

Hi Caroline,
i finally got a Koala table, with hydraulic lifts.  It has great storage and a huge work surface. You can order it in several different heights. I’d recommend the 35” it saves your back when cutting or pinning Quilts. 
Hiwever you should be able to contact any company to get specs and ask if the Giant Janome will fit.  Good luck and happy shopping.
a good table is worth the $$.

Re: iron cleaning

Maria Morrow
 

I have found that the base of the iron affects what comes off easily. With my cheap $10 iron with a coated plate (not shiny steel), I heat I up, then as it is cooling, when it’s still quite warm but not cold, I use a wet Magic Eraser and everything comes off. With my also cheap, but $30 iron with a stainless steel plate, it took the whole house worth of solutions to get scorched starch off of it.

I have a Horn but different model. 
If you go to the Horn of America website and do a search for the model you are considering it should list
under features the opening for the machine.

Apply wet baking soda on the bottom of the iron (warm) and leave for sometime. Then wipe it off with a soft cloth.

Hi Caroline,
I purchased a sewing cabinet from Eddycrest and my 15000 fits beautifully. It has great storage for thread, hoops and so much more. I chose the centerpiece xl model so my machine has ample room and it holds up my quilts with extra space behind the machine. I love mine and l am glad I got it.  Eddycrest.com
