Re: 1/8 inch top stitching

For that kind of close stitching, the Edge Guide Foot SE works really well. I've used it on woven and knits both. https://janomelife.wordpress.com/2018/11/20/foot-of-the-month-series-janomes-edge-guide-foot/

1/8 inch top stitching

Sandra King
 

I’m sure this is a silly question, but I’m told over and over to use 1/8 inch top stitch.  I just guess at it and usually wind up with my thread running off or the stitches are too wide.  I have the 15000.  Can anyone give me tips on this or tell me how to set the needle.

I have a circular foot that fits a 12000. I sold my machine and bought a elna920. I didn't realize it would not fit my new machine. Therefore I would like to sell it for 25.00 plus shipping. I live in Michigan   Liz

I have an old iPad and also the iPad mini that came with my MC15000.  I would like to only get one iPad that would serve all of my purposes.  So I would trade in two devices against one new upgrade.

I see where some of the Acu Apps are free in the App Store.  AcuDesign is not.  How can I get it transferred to my new iPad - is this a dealer responsibility?


Re: Ipad upgrade

Jim Stutsman
 

First the bad news - both of those iPads are so old they will have no trade-in value. None of the resellers are buying them, and Apple will take them for recycling (once they open the stores again, currently end of May) but won't give you any allowance for them. Now the good news - if you have AcuDesign installed on one or both of them, when you buy a new iPad make sure you use the SAME Apple ID for both iCloud and the App Store. Back up the old iPad, either to iCloud or your computer via iTunes. Then when you set up the new iPad restore the backup and AcuDesign will reinstall on the new one.

Re: 5x7 hoop?

Here’s a link to the Horizon Link update too for the 12000

Here’s a link to the hoop update


Re: 5x7 hoop?

Lyn Quine
 

Yes but because it’s an update it is on the second page it doesn’t slot in between the 5x5 and the 9x9 which is what you would expect.  But you do need to download the update from the global website, you’ll find it in the drop down menu, it’s very simple but make sure you read the instructions carefully before putting it on the machine.  I think there’s also an update for the Horizon Link too


Re: 5x7 hoop?

Joyce Daniel
 

thanks Lyn. I'll ck this out.
The designs I have on the usb will all fit in the 5x7 but they're showing on the 12000 screen in the 9x9. I'm guessing I can select the 5x7 hoop and stitch in that hoop instead.

The NETTING is important! Re: [onlinesewing-janome] 5 thread stand holder #859430009

Maria Morrow
 

So..the little netting pieces to go over the cones are important. THAT is what I did not do and why my thread wasn’t feeding correctly. Have no idea why I didn’t YouTube it..thanks!!!

Re: 5x7 hoop?

Have you downloaded and installed the update from the Janome website?  If you have go into edit on the embroidery side and select the hoops, and go to the, there’s and arrow on the right hand side to indicate there’s a second page of hoops, it’s at the bottom of the second page.


5x7 hoop?

Joyce Daniel
 

Hi!

How do I get the 5x7 hoop (RX18) to “show up” as a choice on my 12000?

The 5x5 and 9x9 show but not the 5x7 and I’d like to use it today.

Thanks!! Joyce

To lock the machine you just touch the key symbol on the touch screen. This makes sure the needle is always in the right position for threading. Once threaded touch key symbol again to unlock.

Hi Kathleen. I have a 12000 which has the pull down needle threader. I used to have your problem of it sometimes working, sometimes not. 
I re read the manual and now always lock the machine when threading and it works 100% of the time! You may be doing this but if not, try it. I love this threader now.

i am wondering about the anatomy of a stitch. my machines seem to make a stitch that starts on the top left and ends to the right, just by a thread width.  then the next one starts just the left of the end of the stitch above it.  is this normal...is it a tension thing?


Re: Needles for threader

Thank you Heather,
It was all the way up in this borrowed Singer and still flat area showed.
Only have one hand which complicates most stuff. esp. the tightening.
Good to know about the needles when my machine gets home.

Gov just grounded us 40 more days I agree. except  4 my poor machine.

Hi Vicki:  If the screw is loosened enough ..... not so loose it falls out but just a bit more than needed for the old needle to slide out .... and you push the needle up as far as you can .... it is high enough.  Then the trick is to keep it up there while you tighten the screw.  There is a little brush with a hole at the end of the handle with one side of the hole flat like the needle.  If you find one it is handy as you put the needle in it and then use the brush like a handle to lift the needle into place and hold it there while you tighten the screw.  I bet if you change to Organ needles you will have NO problems.  I haven’t used Klasse but have used Schmitz.  Prefer the Organ which is also used by many manufacturers.  Breathe, relax and let your hands find the correct position for the needle and don’t overthink it.  My hands work better than my brain at this sort of thing ..... duh ... okay .... most things.
Good luck .... hugs heather ...

To lock the machine you just touch the key symbol on the touch screen. This makes sure the needle is always in the right position for threading. Once threaded touch key symbol again to unlock.

I have a Gnome for the holidays design from Julia’s Needle Designs, here’s the link


Embroidery Library and Urban Threads also have Gnome for the holidays design. In fact if you google Gnome for the holidays embroidery design you will find a number of different embroidery designs with that name.

Good Luck,
