This version requires a minimum of iOS 11 to install. If you are on an older iPhone or iPad that does not support iOS 11, fear not! You will continue to get new content updates, including new feet with videos. The only thing you won't get is modifications to the app itself. In this case the only change is some bug fixes and a few changes in the menu structure. The app will hopefully be approved in a few days, but the foot updates are in place now. If you have used the app recently the only addition will be the new HD Roller Foot. It's a great addition to your collection for cording, edge stitching, and more.


Question for Jim on 15000 Horizon

mimi jo
 

A cord like string was sticking up and out the tiny hole at bottom of bobbin case. It was under the bobbin when I changed bobbin after having machine's annual service.   I thought it was fuzz. It came out of the tiny screw hole you can see when you examine the bobbin casing.  It wasn't fuzz noted as I cleaned it,  but a cord like string.  It came out.  What does it do and should I put it back?  I might be able to take a picture of it if my description is lacking.  Machine embroiders fine, but better with red dot case, now. I heard that the yellow dot bobbin case might need replacing because they wear out. Service tech did not recommend but was not having any problems before service.
Really thank you for your knowledge and for administering the group.  You are appreciated.  
Big hugs, Jo Ann


Quick Thanks

Just a quick note - Jim thanks for the update to the foot book. I have been using all your apps for years now, BEST MONEY I EVER SPENT ON APPS. You and Diane have been so great, consistently dependable and I just wanted to take this chance to say thank-you for being that go-to place for solid answers.

You can also fit one or even 2 low pedestals under the large BEKANT IKEA desk.  I have a couple of low pedestals on wheels that I bought from a recycled office furniture supplier - think they came at £20 each - which I am planning to use once I've re-organised my studio.  I think I may need to raise the table an inch as I have it on it's lowest height and the frame underneath may get in the way, but that should still be ok for me with regard to the height of the sewing surface of the 15000.

Re: Skyline S9 Question

Pixey
 

I went back to my dealer with the same question.  If you toggle it and watch the end of the machine you will see the switch for lowering the feed dogs toggle at the same time.  So it is an “alternate” switch for lowering the feed dogs.  I suspect it was a design carryover from an earlier model but then they realized that you really cannot get to it easily with the embroidery unit installed and added the feed dog toggle at the end of the machine.

Just went to look at this table and it's really a great idea and not expensive compared to the typical sewing table/cabinet.

It's definitely on my wish list.

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: different hoop size on 12000

Jim Stutsman
 

There is nothing you can, or should, oil on the embroidery carriage. The squeak you hear is not really a metal on metal squeak, but the sound of the nylon belts that move the carriage. They are quite tight and tend to "sing" when moving in certain directions. It will diminish with time, as the parts get used to one another.

Just removing the hoop should not have affected positioning. Not enough information to know what happened or why.


Re: 9450

Vicki I upgraded from my 7700QCP to the 9400QCP right before the 9450 came out.  In reality they are the same machine with the same features.  I do not regret upgrading at all.  The new HP foot is a dream.  I probably would not have upgraded but I screwed up my needle bar attaching my dual feed foot which had always been a nightmare to attach.  I had just traded in my 12,000 for the 15000Quiltmaker 6 months before and had the same foot and plate on that machine however it is great to now have the best of both worlds and I can interchange the dual feed feet with the 15,000 so that in turn saves me on purchasing additional feet for the 9400. I had both my 12,000 and my 7700 for 6 years and never had an issue with anyone of them till the 7700.  Hope this helps.

Re: different hoop size on 12000

Thanks a ton to all who so quickly replied. Looks like I had already updated my 12000. You would think I would have remembered this as it's quite involved to do. But, I figured out where to find my 5x7 hoop on page 2. Yeah!! Thanks!!

Now, wondering.....the arm of my 12000 "squeaks" as it moves in/out of embroidery mode. Does it need cleaning/oiling and if so, how/where do I do that?

And, I was embroidering a 6 color design from Urban Threads. After color 4, I had to change to a new bobbin which meant removing the hoop. When I started again, color 5 did not stitch in the correct spot. I had to turn off the machine, restart it and then color 5 was correct. Anyone have this happen? And if so, why?

This is the update you'll need: https://www.janome.co.jp/e/e_downloads/mc12000v120.html

If you've already updated your 12000, then you need to turn the page on the screen of the machine, as the RE-18 hoop is not on the first page.


Re: different hoop size on 12000

Lyn Quine
 

There’s a free download to update the 12000 on the Janome global website, you can download it to a USB and follow the instructions that are on the website.  It’s very easy to do.

I have 5 x 7 hoop for my 12000 but it does not show up as a choice on my machine.

How do I make that happen?

Re: AcuSetter and other APP's

Virgina,

You also need a project for that Acusetter as well as the time. However, projects are not hard to find. The Acusetter is really awesome and easy to use, but it all takes TIME, as I’m still learning.
