Re: EQ8

Lorrie Gauthier
 

I had purchased eq8 through their website for whatever the regular price was at the time. I think I used the online chat (message me button bottom right) because I had a question and she gave me a bit off the regular price. I installed it on my pc. 

Then in I decided to switch completely to a Mac. I am using VMware on it to run Digitizer but decided it was worth the $25 migration fee to get a license for my Mac and installed that. Works like a charm. 

I think I'm allowed to use one installation on a pc and one on a Mac or both on the Mac but I only have it installed on the Mac right now. I quit the pc cold turkey. 

You might want want to email them and tell them what you have and ask how to go about getting what you need. Their customer support is wonderful. 


Re: Embroidery help- and a website - USB's

Cheryl Paul
 

Pat,

When you put the USB into the embroidery machine - the machine does its magic and places some files on to the USB. They are EMB and ORD - the EMB is from embroidery designs and the ORD is for stitch files that you can make in Stitch Composer and save for stitching. Don’t worry about the ORD for now - just get familiar with your embroidery files. If you touch the arrow at the top of the screen when in embroidery mode, you can go back to file folders that are at the root of the USB and the file list to go into ones that show up on the screen when you select the USB as your file source to find your designs. I’m not at my machine now, but I think you’ll figure it out once you are in embroidery mode. I get myself stumped quite often and I’ve been doing this for years, and years. Things change a bit with each new machine that comes out and I’ve had quite a few in the last 15 or so years.

Don’t be afraid to try things, if you get stuck and are frightened as to what will happen or confused, you can always turn the power off/on switch and start over with a clean slate. I’ve even been stalemated to need to resort to turning the power off when the DON’T DO IT icon has showed its face on the screen. The machine was frozen and there was no other way to get it going. I only did that as a last resort though.

Thanks for the info. Small fee? Was that when EQ8 first came out? I should have jumped on it. Now it’s $99.

Thank you Tracy.  I am sure I'll be able to format the USB now.  I have read the manual, somehow I missed this.  I have also been looking on-line.  I appreciate your help, thanks again.

To format a USB you should find the info on your machine under the Settings tab. Open it and look at the Embroidery settings. You may have to change pages to find the Format area. Put a blank USB stick in the machine before you turn it on. Then find Settings, Embroidery, Format. This should be in your owners manual also so look at the Settings info probably near the front of the book. I am not where I can look at a manual. Sorry.

Yes, it you format a USB that has designs on it, you lose them so be sure you have them stored elsewhere. When the USB is formatted, it puts a folder on it where the machine looks for designs and where you will copy/paste them to from your computer. Only put copies of designs on the USB.  Only use a 2gb or less stick.  Anything outside the folder will not be "seen" by the machine.  The machine looks at ALL the designs in the folder when you first open it on the machine. The more designs you have on the stick, the longer it takes to open and let you find what you are after. So that is why you should only put a few at a time in the USBs folder.  Stitch them, or remove them... Then put other designs on it.

Hope this helps. I am not sure how the WiFi features work. Maybe someone else can help with that.  Reading your manual is also a good idea and there is help on the Janome website under the Learning tab if you don't see info here.

Happy stitching!

Having just put beads on an ornament project, practice before putting them on a quilt. I made the mistake of putting them too close to each other which made the unit pooch! I also found that taking a stitch putting on a bead then attaching that to the fabric followed up by a stitch that had no bead locked in the bead. So in other words stitch,  put on bead, stitch no bead, then stitch with a bead  - repeat! I found out from experimentation that an additional stitch after the bead stabilized the previous stitches. 

 

As for the window, I would throw the onus back on her to provide the glass fusible beads! An alternate solution would be to use a bright yellow or yellow/orange batik and blow off the glass fusible beads. You can’t work with what you can’t get; but a backup plan is always handy!

EQ8

Maria Morrow
 

Hello no have EQ7 for pc but haven’t ever used it. I am now going to upgrade to EQ8 and spend time learning it. EQ told me I can upgrade to Mac or pc. At the time I bought pc, the Etsy seller recommended it, but I can’t for the life of me remember why. 

I hate using a pc and I love using a Mac. 

Who know the pluses and minuses of both when making things for Janome 15000 (which I also have).

Thanks in advance.

Re: memory cards from 10 or 11 K

Tracy
 

Nyssa-
No this doesn't work. The device you linked to is for reading other media cards. It will not read the Janome memory cards. As Jim said... The pins are different and putting a Janome memory card into the device's slots would not match up the correct pins inside the reader/writer. 

When Janome stopped making memory cards with designs for the machines, they came out with a CD that had all the designs on it from all the cards, starting with those from the MC8000 model. Check with a dealer or eBay for one of the CDs.

Re: Broken hook off bobbin holder on 15000

Jim Stutsman
 

If you can get the correct replacement part, it's pretty simple. Use painter's tape or similar to carefully mark exactly how the piece is sitting now. Install the new one in the exact same space and you're good to go. It will only become complicated if you have to rebuild the broken piece from an unbroken, but incorrect, replacement part. This photo may help a bit:

I printed them out and kept them both my machine for a long time.  And- while I really like using the floriani products- if I have to use something else, this information still lets me know what type of stabilizer to use for my projects.

Re: Broken hook off bobbin holder on 15000

Jim Stutsman
 

The part number might correct, but the current parts list for the 15000 no longer lists individual parts on the entire bobbin assembly. It's simply one (very expensive) part that would take many hours to install. The confusion comes from the different style of the parts. Both pictures below are sold as #846632003:



The one on the right is the one you need. However the one on the left is available from Amazon.uk, sold by GUR Sewing Machines in Birmingham. They probably have the one on the right, but it's not listed on their website. If you can't get the correct one, all is not lost. The part that broke off is actually held on to the larger part with a small cross point screw. I have disassembled and reassembled many of these to straighten the bent bit. Of course once it's broken off there is no straightening, but you could migrate that part from the new incorrect stopper to the old correct stopper. You just need good light, a work area that will impede tiny parts from falling into oblivion (black fabric might work), a very small cross point screwdriver and a #2 cross point driver for installing it. Take photos before and during disassembly, as it will help on reassembly. Once you have a workable stopper you can install it. The lever that extends over the back of the bobbin case is held in place by the bracket at the back of the stopper. Positioning of the stopper is VERY important. You want it so the bobbin case has a bit of wiggle. If it can't move, then the thread won't be able to slip between the case and the stopper. The stopper should be fully aligned with the "bump" on the bobbin case. If too far toward the front of the machine, the case can slip past and spin out. If too far back it won't allow proper thread movement. You also want that little spring (which broke) to be at 90 degrees to the front edge of the machine. I would suggest putting in the stopper, tightening the holding screw just enough to keep it from moving. Then turn the hand wheel through several stitches with the bobbin cover off so you can observe thread movement. If it seems good, tighten fully and stitch slowly. If anything wonky happens adjust as needed. This task is fiddly, but you can do it. Probably a good thing to do while the outside temperature is driving folks to Hades where it's cooler.
