question on a machine - Janome 6300

Patricia Ward
 

Morning,
My sister has started doing some basic quilting and piecing; her Elna died so she bought a Janome 6300 as a discontinued model.   I have read the manual on it as I am trying to help her from 78 miles away....

My questions: 
Is it a high shank model?
I guess it is a 7mm?

Would the Convertible Free Motion Set ( H?S)  
part number 202001003 work on her 6300? 

Thanks!

Pat

Thanks, Ladies! I think these are all good suggestions. I’m going to practice using all the feet y’all suggested and see which one works the best for me.

Have you tried locating the design in the folder, and dragging and dropping to the USB?  Have you checked the USB to see if it has been sent over and it’s ok?  I know when I ‘send’ from my software, I don’t get a message to show it’s been sent or the list of designs on the USB.

You don’t need to go thru Horizon link to transfer design to usb. Go to your explorer download folder on your computer- looks like a file icon on bottom bar..dbl click to open it. On left side you can also scroll down and see your usb drive listed. 
Find where your Hoopsisters design is( do you have it downloaded to a folder or just in the downloads file). Once you find the design in .jef format, click on it to highlight it. Then right click and choose “copy” from the drop down box choices.. next go to the left side of screen and scroll down to your usb stick. Click on it to highlight it. Then right click and choose”paste”. It should then be copied onto your usb file.
Double click on the usb to open it to check the design is there. You can put folder too if you want. Hope this helps

I'm so sorry to say; I'm completely frustrated.  I have a design from Hoop Sisters, I'm trying to get it onto my machine, 15000.  When I go to Horizon Link, I go to the place where it has split screens, I have selected the JEF file on the left and then on the right, I selected my flashdrive, and nothing ever happens???????????  What, pray tell am I missing.  I've spent the last 2 hours, there is nothing in my manual, (that I can find), nothing in the workbook (that I can find).  

Thank you, thank you, to anyone who can help put me out of my misery (smile).

I don't think it is a silly question at all, but you might think what I do is, because I like the zipper foot for topstitching on edges. I put the foot in a 'good spot' for holding /moving the fabric, then move the needle ti where I want to sew. I can see foot, edge and needle positions, and can get pretty accurate results, even through fabric will wiggle when it wants to.   I also like it for binding, sewing the binding to the back first then topstitching it on the front. The zipper foot rides on the binding and the needle can stitch a smidgen back from the edge.  The 15000 has 91 needle positions, and the 71 needle positions, so more variable than my 100-stitch computerized Kenmore (made by Janome), but I have used the zipper foot for topstitching since I was a kid sewing on a treadle machine. Just my preference.  You have the option with the 15000 of using the cloth guide, too, to help keep things straight. I use it when making baby blankets when I want to topstitch 1 to 1-1/2" from the edge.

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 use the HP foot then position the foot so that it is half on the fabric.  The needle hits right on the edge of the fabric creating the perfect edge top stitch.

Hi Sandra,

I have the MC11000 and I use the adjustable blind hem foot as a guide. It works really well. Other than that you can try using a ditch stitching foot and adjust the needle position on scrap fabric.

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/

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

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!!!

Yes, the thread stand works for all of the newer Janome machine models, including the 12000 now retired machine.

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.
