Checking in

Jim Stutsman
 

It's been quiet for a day or two, so I'm just checking to see how everyone is doing. This is probably the most challenging time any of us have had or will ever experience. A lot of us had parents who grew up during the Great Depression in the 1930s. The impact of that affected them, and even those of us that were raised by them. I still have a very hard time throwing anything away if there's even a remote chance of needing it again. Our current unemployment rate has exceeded what it was then, so let's help whomever we can, whenever we can.

Props to Janome for offering live events online, as well as a trial of Artistic Digitizer. And if you don't already follow the Janome Canada blog, you should. Those ladies do an amazing job.

Stay safe!


Re: Ultimate ruffler

Thank you, Jim.   

I again looked at the part numbers and the part number for the ruffler for the 11000 is 943100000  Then I checked the one on my box and it is 943-100-000  ... Same one I assumed so I thought I would try it.   WOW, it fits the 11000 and works... I have done gathers and pleats on it and it is working fine.  

So I will save my money and not purchase the one for the 15000 now since I have a workable ruffler. 

Stay well.

That was Janome's first snap-on ruffler. As I recall it is low shank, and thus would not work on either of your high-shank embroidery machines. You can check without risk by snapping it on and lowering the presser foot. If it is not in contact with the feed dogs it won't work. There is also the issue of stitch width, which might require adjusting the position of the needle hole on the ruffler. There is a ruffler that is suitable for your 15000 - part number 202095004, foot RF.

Thanks Jim, I will do so.

It sounds like the threader is not completely retracting after threading. See your dealer to have it adjusted.

Since a couple of weeks the needle threader on my Janome 6600 moves while I’m sewing.

Does anyone has suggestions what to do about this?

Thanks!


Ultimate ruffler

Patricia Ward
 

Good Morning, Everyone...

I have a Janome Ultimate Ruffler that I would love to use again. I have been researching online to see which machines it would fit

I have Jem 760  
11000 
15000

I am guessing it will fit the Jem but not the 11000 or 15000.

Could someone direct me in this dilemma?  If I could use it on one of the larger machines I would be delighted but don't want to risk anything happening to either the 11000 or 15000.  Better safe than sorry,they say.  

Thank you so much!

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

Lyn Quine
 

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.
