I got a pencil/stylus from Janome from my Janome dealer - If I remember correctly it was under $20. and it works really well on the AcuSketch App.

Cynthia,  I use a pencil called Mixoo Stylus pen & it works for Ipad or phone.  It was reasonable like under20$.  I use it everyday with no problems.  Shirley


Re: loose bobbin tension

Donna Morton
 

I quilt in the hoop a lot. By default tension in embroidery is not balanced. That is why the back does not look very nice. To overcome this I adjust my upper thread tension to 3.4 and I use the blue dot bobbin case. I do this for the design I am using in “Adjust”. Do not do this in Set. The combination of higher upper thread tension and looser bobbin tension creates a more balanced tension when doing quilting in the hoop.

Re: Marking your quilt for edge to edge quilting using acufil

I try to use a seam as a base line somewhere on my quilt.  And I run the design off the edges- that way I don’t have to do the math to make sure it fits. Shrinkage happens.

Did you send it zipped if you did that could be why your editor and acuedit can’t open it.  I always use Dropbox, I send from Acudesign to dropbox then transfer from dropbox on my PC to USB to transfer to the machine

I am not sure if I am correct but your 500 is not wireless and is on a windows platform. You have to transfer with a USB?

Re: Apple Pencil

Mary Sanerkin
 

Hi

I bought a ‘cheaper’ pencil from Amazon.  I think it was around £46. One of the main problems (which I didn’t think of at the time) is they don’t allow you to rest or place your hand on the screen whilst sketching, this functionality is called ‘palm rejection’ and is important.    The nibs were a bit thick. Using it wasn’t a problem and charging was easy with a cable. It was’t very easy to use and the tips were a bit soft so they dragged across the screen.   I borrowed a few different pencils from friends to try out. After much testing I found the ipencil gave me the best results.  I was lucky and got one for my birthday and haven’t looked back.  It was easier to charge (I have an iPad Pro and my ipencil sits on the top of the iPad (No cables needed) and charges whilst it is sitting there.   So easy to use to sketch designs and update acudesign.  So whilst expensive, personally I think it was worth it.      Mary


Re: Apple Pencil

The Apple pencils don’t work with all models, there’s at least 2 Apple pencils.   I bought the Libberrway stylus from Amazon which works well with my iPhone and iPad and iPad Pro, but the pencil I bought only works with my iPad Pro it doesn’t work with my iPhone 6S+ or my iPad Air 2.  The Liberrway was around £10 and is the same as the Janome stylus (not sure if they still sell it and it was never available in the UK) which was a lot more expensive.  For the £10 I got 2 stylus and interchangeable heads.  The stylus does work with the Janome apps including AcuSketch.

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,

Re: Pressure on presser foot

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.
