Re: Resize embroidery design

When you bring your design up on your machine's screen - put it into the hoop that it wants you to use, even tho it's not the one you will end up using.  That way the design will show up and you can edit it in that hoop.  Re-size it there and then change your hoop to the one you want when it will fit inside it.  Be sure to save the re-sized design with a new name so you can keep the original file as well.

Well, I will be a son of a gun.  I decided to try one more time; and after a few tries, got all 8 files send over.

Whew, whew and whew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Again, sorry for the bother.  But, I still feel this should be easier.

Thanks so much for your understanding.

Carole,

If the design is shaped to fit the GR hoop, you may not be able to resize it to fit the SQ22 as one is rectangular and the other square. The next thing is that you can only resize designs by up to 20% either way. ie: 100% to 80% or 120%. Some designs can only be resized by 10%. This is for Horizon Like Suite or on the edit screen of the sewing machine. Also if the purchased design is not in portrait position it won’t rotate either. If you have digitizing software, you should be able to get it to the size you need.

Hi Cheryl - Saskatoon (& anyone else wanting to jump in, smile).

I made baby steps today.  Got my JEF files to open (they show on the left side) & on the right side shows Built In (machine) & two USB ports.  When I click on the built in, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, says wi-fi connection error - or if I'm successful, it lists folders, EMBF, New Folder & 3 files I have there.  So, on my machine, I have it set to the "hoop window".  When I clicked on the JEF folders & hit the right arrow; it errors, so I tried to send one square at a time (there are 8 squares); and I managed to get 1 to send.  All of the rests, it errors with either:  wi-fi connetion problem, or the machine failed to receive.  I went into settings on Horizon & clicked on my machine.  But as soon as I leave this screen, the setting doesn't hold?  Is my machine supposed to remain there?  I go to the machine & sometimes it shows something transmitting with a yellow warning sign on top of screen.

Nothing should be this hard.  So, my class is tomorrow & I've already spent too much time with this, I will use my flash drive in the machine for class tomorrow.

Any suggestions?  Sorry for being such a pest.

Again, wish there was some info in writing somewhere.

Thanks for even just listening.

June

Resizing can cause distortion, 20% smaller, unless the software used compensates by reducing stitches rather than making stitches smaller you could end up with a tight hard block.  If you can it’s probably better to use the GR hoop, or go back to the website and see if the design is there for a smaller hoop.  If you use the GR hoop, you could try floating it on the hoop and using the magnets on there,  I have done that, it’s better hooped and tightened a little then using the magnets, but floating can work but would depend on the thickness of the quilt sandwich.  You could try the big magnets,  or even Dianes idea of the fishing magnets rather than the magnet clips.  My last resort would be to reduce because of the risk of distortion.

I only want to decrease this design by 20% maximum so it will fit the ASQ22 hoop, so I can use the magnets to hold the quilt sandwich together.

HL only will increase/decrease the design by 20% if that. To make the design fit the ASQ22 hoop you would need a program that could do so. MBX or Embird or another type of software. I believe that Wilcom has a free program as a download, https://www.wilcom.com/products/truesizerproducts.aspx

June,

Open Horizon Link Suite. Choose the top called “EmbLink Tool”. The next screen opens and here, you can open your file from either of the left most icons “View Embroidery” or “Edit Embroidery”. Now the challenge comes in finding your design. It will likely be in your “C” drive in a folder that you may have created. If you haven’t done this, find the correct drive where you have saved the design. I’ve learned the hard way that it is VERY important to save things in a safe place on the computer so I can find them quickly. For me, everything goes into my “Downloads folder” first, then later into a folder in my Documents. You decide what’s easiest for you to find your file. If it’s on a USB, go to that drive in the list and open from there.

If you don’t get this to work. I'll try again to help. Be very specific in what you do and explain to this group - you’ll get help.

Re: Convertible Free Motion Qltg Foot

The mc 15000 doesn't need the convertible free motion foot. The 15000 uses the snap on qc and qo plus the little saucer one. You use sewing applications/ quilting/free quilting and then pick stitch #2 or the one that shows the little foot. From there you are able to adjust the height if the foot to just skin your quilt just like you would with the convertible foot but better for your machine. 

Cheers,
Anne in DE

QB-S is part #202146001, which you say is QB-H. That part number is for QB-S. QB-H has part #202001003 and is for 7mm high shank machines. The 15000 is a 9mm high shank machine.

I have the 15000.  I downloaded a purchased single run design that will be used to quilt a quilt.  The design is too large for the ASQ22 hoop, which is the one I was to use and I want to resize the design to fit the ASQ 22 (not GR which it defaults to).  I used HL to bring the design to the computer screen.  I selected EDIT,  but the resize option is grayed out.  How do I get that option active?  Thank for any help.

Thanks and a huge thank-you to everyone who responded to my msg.

I have managed to copy the JEF file onto the flash drive and I can access it without going thru Horizon Link.  WHEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

I don't think I'm going to bother with Horizon Link for a while (smile); wish there were some instructions out there somewhere.  I clicked on the "question mark" & printed out what I thought would be instructions.  But, still can't figure it out.

Oh well, there's always another day.

Thanks again everyone!

Stay safe,

June

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?

Jim, would you please tell me the correct foot number needed for the 15K Quiltmaker?  I am under the impression it has to be a QB-S  but can't seem to find anyone familiar with that. I have 202146001 QB-H which I thought was not good for this machine. Thanks, Claire

Re: 1/8 inch top stitching

I love using the the Clear View Quilting Set foot for doing 1/8 inch top stitching.  It has clear markings for 1/8” stitching and you can adjust the needle position to the right to get that perfect alignment.  FootBook also gives some tips for using it for 1/8” seams.

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.


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
