Sewing and wearing fabric masks is a good gesture of solidarity and might help to prevent infecting others if you‘re sneezing. It is not protecting you against Sars-CoV-2 ... just to manage expectations.

Fabric masks are not considered PPE and their capability to protect against COVID-19 is unknown.“

Keeping a proper distance to others is currently the only way to flatten the curve of infections enough to improve the medical care situation and research for a cure / vaccine.

If you open the second options down and then go to designs it should let you do a .jef.  Not by computer right now.

Re: Embroidery on MC12000 question

Are the designs you are trying to do the ones with ornaments in the center and borders around them?  Perhaps you could crop the design to eliminate the border, then add it later. I realize this would not work if you would want to do the stippling included with the design, but you could add your own quilting stitches to the completed block, if you are into that kind of thing.

Thank you all for your suggestions.  
I'm going to visit my friend, after the Covid-19 stay at home orders are over, to use her larger hoop and her Viking sewing machine.

brand new 9450 with error message

Dear Jim, I just unboxed a brand new Janome 9450 and unfortunately the message please raise needle bar slowly came up. Sounds simple but the needle bar knob only moves a tiny, tiny bit and than is solid as anything. No matter what I try the message keeps coming up and the knob is solid. There also seems to be a 2 second delay when I switch the machine on and off. My 12000 at least switches the lights on instantly and than goes through it's motions. I have switched on on/off numerous times, tried needle plate changes, took bobbin case out, opened the left hand side to see if I could see anything obvious but all to no evail. Apart from taking it back to the dealer, do you have any suggestions? Thanks heaps Bernadette


Re: Problem with bobbin winding

Jim I had one of those senior moments, I was trying to use the foot pedal to wind the bobbin on my 15000, I guess that what happens from going from my 8900 back to the 15000. I figured it last night when I woke up that I had to hit the bobbin winding button to start the bobbin winding. It was operator error. 🤣


Re: Problem with bobbin winding

This happened to me after I had my machine serviced. The dealer forgot to reconnect the bobbin motor. Maybe Jim can help you do it yourself or check to see if that’s the problem?

Re: Problem with bobbin winding

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it sounds like the bobbin winder has failed. Either the motor isn't working or the bushing has seized up. I would suggest calling the dealer before making the trip again, as they will probably need to order the part. That way you would only have to make the trip when they get it in stock.

Jim,
 I just got my machine back from the dealer last week for its regular maintenance., I did some embroidery work, all was fine. Then I switch to regular sewing and needed to wind a bobbin, and the icon shows but the bobbin is not winding. I tried to turn it by hand, and it is very stiff and hard to turn. The dealer is 2 hours away. Any suggestions would be very helpful. Thanks Patti in Flint Texas

Cheryl,
i agree i have the same issue on my older machines sucking down the edge of knits.  holding the threads has been the best solution i have come up with.  also, the term 'given the gears..." for getting gas?

Pixey,  The same thing happens on the 7mm needle plate too - ask me how I know.  Also the 5mm.  I don’t know if there is a solution or what it could be IF someone in research and development even cares.  I’m not being nasty, just saying it as I see it.

We have been given things we’ve asked for as consumers ie:  the RE18 hoop, but they didn’t even get that right.  We just wanted a hoop that was what was referred to as the 5”X7”.  Janome choose to give us a larger size than that, but we weren’t really told that and wanted exactly what we’d had before.  I use that hoop a fair bit and the smaller hasn’t caused me any difficulties, but I’ve seen designs that need the 200mm which is 20mm longer than the RE18 offers.

I do hope that if we ask enough when we see our Educators from Janome that it will come through to those who actually develop and make our machines.

PS:  I think I’ll be a “nut case” before this COVID-19 runs its course.  Our streets are bare, my kids are closing their store for the near future.  I was given the gears by friends for going and putting gas in my van.  Other children don’t want us getting our own groceries - the list goes on and on and on.



Re: FootBook

Jim Stutsman
 

I'm assuming that you mean FootBook on CD, which we offered at the beginning, but discontinued when CD-ROM drives also went the way of the dinosaurs. You can move it to a USB drive, but you will need to have a CD drive to read it. Put both the CD and the USB drive in the computer. Use Windows Explorer to open the CD. Select everything in it (CTRL-A on the keyboard). Then open the USB drive and paste (CTRL-V). When it finishes you can remove both and just use the USB drive.

Re: Embroidery on MC12000 question

another thing I learned on the 12000, that is probably not applicable to the hoop size you are asking about but good to know, is that the 12000 can only handle a design w 100,000 stitches. Bigger than this will not show up on the screen....another, ask me how I know this.....

Nice project!
Another thing that I sometimes do when the design is too long for the hoop is to rotate it until it does fit. If you don’t have digitizing or editing software, then you’ll have to ask someone who does to do it for you.
The project looks like it has the quilting as part of each block, does it? If so then you won’t be able to rotate it because the perimeter will exceed the hoop limit just like it’s already doing. In that case, in the software delete the quilting, do the quilting on your sewing machine.
