Apple Pencil

Cynthia Dickerson
 

I followed along on the Janome video yesterday where Janome has a new video available every weekday.  Just in case you are not aware of this, it is on Janome.com on facebook every weekday at 3:00pm est. using all the different machines. She showed a project using the Apple Pencil with her i-pad.    This pencil is around $129.00 and I don't think I would use it enough to purchase it for this price.  Does anyone use a cheaper pencil that they are happy with it?  I found some for under $10.00 and some for around $30.00.   I would love to get one but for a cheaper price.  Thanks for any help!  Cindhy

I have a question: my friend has an 11000 embroidery machine and when she turns the machine on, there is a message that tells her to raise the needle bar and presser foot, then turn off the machine and turn it back on. She has done this about 10 times without success. I have the 12000 machine and have not had this message. All of our machine shops in the vicinity are closed due to the virus.

loose bobbin tension

Carole O'Mara
 

I just finished a table runner that was quilted in the ASQ22 hoop (with the magnets).  It was a single run design used all over the quilt.  I used a Mettler 50wt silk finish thread top and bottom and red dot bobbin holder.  The top looks great.  But the bottom threads look loose.  Should I have used a different bobbin holder since I used a Mettler thread?
Thanks,

twist and turn it once in to make sure it is all the way in, it sounds like it may not be in all the way.

Re: Pressure on presser foot

Lynda Lu Gibb
 

I had this problem on my 12000, I was advised to take the throat plate off and GENTLY clean the sensor area at the top right corner. That tip fixed that issue for me. The other suggestion I was given was to change out the throat plate to the other one to see if it happened with either. If you have the single needle holed plate on but are trying to sew the wrong stitch for it that could also trigger that warning.


memory craft 6600P

Shirley Taylor
 

I needed a new shaft (foot  holder) for my MC 6600P.  I have a new one but it is different than the one that came on the machine.  It has a screw on the back that sticks out to hold the quilting bar .  The old one has a black metal cover over the hole where you put the quilting bar, and the back  side of the shank is straight with no protrusion. I wondered if it were designed this way because of the Dual feed system.  Does anyone know the answer.  I called a dealer I have met at quilt shows because the dealer i have always used could not get it.  I do not drive out of town anymore.  The dual feed feet on this machine has the shank built in.  No local dealer so have to drive 45 -60 minutes to one.
Thank you for help.


Marking your quilt for edge to edge quilting using acufil

I am using hearts templet and will require 25 hoopings for a baby quilt.  I marked the middle where I would embroidery the first one but how do I mark the quilt for the rest of them?  I know it must be simple but I am at a loss.  Thanks for any help.

I bought 2 yards of this to cover my Big Board and it works very well. You can get it in a lighter weight poplin for a little less.

Yes, Valora it was & I turned the cutter off & was able to finish it  Thanks


Re: Re To thread cutter

Thank you Heather that was the problem, but I was able to fudge it & it worked out fine.  I turned the cutter off & went back over the problem area very carefully.  Yes, and so glad it was not my machine.


Pressure on presser foot

Jeanne
 

I am getting near constant “beeping” to make sure the correct foot is attached.  I’m using “A” and “O” and stitching is just fine.  I have gone into Settings as Jim previously suggested and adjusted pressure foot to plus 1, plus 2 and plus 3 with no success.  Then I started going negative — still no success.  Is there anything else I can do before I take the machine (12000) in for professional adjustment?  I can’t figure out why this started happening so frequently.


Re: Re To thread cutter

HEATHER COWAN
 

Shirley:  Our 9 mm machines will not recognize an embroidery stitch that is wider than 9mm as a stitch and will treat it as a color stop.  This can happen if you enlarge a design or I have had it happen when converting a design from the original to a different format.  A great test would be to take your design and rename it “so you don’t wreck the original”.  Decrease the size by 20%.  Stitch out the area where it was cutting the stitches instead of sewing them.  You can just advance the design to the color you want and don’t waste time and thread stitching out the whole thing.  If this fixes your problem then you have a NEW problem.  What to do with the original design so those stitches are no wider than 9mm.  I can do this in my software but don’t know what you use so can’t advise.  Good luck ...... hope this is your problem as it’s better than a mechanical one.
Hugs
Heather

Was it doing a wide satin stitch? It might have thought that stitch was a jump stitch.  If it was a wide satin then turn off the cutter for that object.

Thank you Jim,  I will give it a try  Shirley


Re: Re To thread cutter

Jim Stutsman
 

Cutting the thread involves several separate operations all initiated by software. It's extremely unlikely that this is a malfunction. In the past I have seen this happen when a design has a lot of stitches, typically satin, that are longer than 1.27cm (about 1/2"). The machine treats them as jumps, and if cutting jump stitches is turned on it will do exactly what your machine is doing. Turn off jump cutting and the problem should go away.

Re: Permanently change a Default on Skyline 7?

Yes, you can permanently change the default setting of the presser foot pressure.
Use the Settings tab.
Ordinary Sewing functions, 
On page 4 you will find the adjustment for the presser foot pressure.
Make sure you select OK before leaving the screen to save your setting.
