Re: Troubles...

I'm not sure what you mean by "foot bar". If it's the bar that the foot holder attaches to (presser bar), and it won't move when lowered, then you are almost certainly not going to be able to do anything to fix it. Disassembly is required and maybe parts. As you may imagine, it's VERY difficult to diagnose the problem from the pictures you provided. If you have no Janome service you could maybe have it looked at by someone who works on sewing machines in general, just to see what the problem is. Otherwise there isn't much you can do.


Re: hand look stitches.

favymtz
 

When I posted my comments about hand look stitches I also realized that the question being asked could be about the hand look quilting stitches.
So we actually could be talking about 1 of 3 types of stitches!
  • Hand look quilting (using monofilament in the upper thread) (have been available on most Janome models for many years)
  • Hand look that are the dense embroidery stitches (I think started on the Janome 12000 machine)
  • Hand look stitches that are the irregular stitch patterns on the new M7 machine.
Which is it???

Turn the hand wheel and see if anything is hitting or stuck. When the bobbin case spins past the stopper it almost always leads to damage. If the wheel won't turn remove the plate and bobbin case and try again. If it still won't turn you need service. You'll probably need service anyway. That's a pretty bad nest.

The bobbin case was not the only thing damaged. More than likely the needle hit the hook race, which is the aluminum "basket" that the bobbin case sits on. That would cause it to be noisy. Worse, though, is that a nick, gouge, or other damage to the hook race will catch thread while sewing and not allow it to release once it's made the trip around the bobbin case. When the stitch doesn't release it will quickly cause other stitches to pile up and force the bobbin case up past the stopper, causing what you saw. You can examine the hook race yourself with a strong light and magnifying glass. Look for anything that is not perfectly smooth. Also check the bobbin case stopper. It may be damaged or out of position, so it allows the bobbin case to pop up easily. If there is damage you'll need to see your dealer again. Janome has a tool for buffing hook race damage, part #OILSTONE.


Re: Looking for a design

Gwen Derks
 

My problem, I think, is, how do I have folders to show up in MBX5, so I do not have to go through each design to find a certain design. For instance all Christmas in one place, all animals, in one folder etc. I have all pubic designs in a folder that came with MBX. I just can not figure out how to put my designs this way. Any step by step info would be appreciated.

Sharon,

Here is another link - it looks like she is using an Skyline machine

I know that there are some differences that came with the Continental M7 as it is Janome’s latest sewing machine (no embroidery on this one), but most of the hand look stitches can be made on many machine. It is a technique but sewing machine companies have tried to make it easy to do IF you follow instructions. I suggest that you Google for more videos - specify Janome, so that you can narrow the search a little.

I "think" what you maybe looking for is a design that was showing a digitized design of the 15000?  If so, it's on a Janome 15 Virtual group on Facebook.  Dottie in Texas

Do you want the organising folders?  if so look here Machine Embroidery Organising Folders 
If I've misunderstood, please ask again. 

Hope this helps?  ;-)


Re: hand look stitches.

Hand look stitches on the 12000, 14000 and 15000 are decorative stitches in the Decorative Stitch category, look for them there. These Hand look stitches are dense hand embroidery looking stitches.
on the new Continental M7 machine there is also an additional decorative stitch function that we’re discussing in the group. Those Hand look stitches are designed to look uneven to simulate hand sewn work. Only the M7 has them so far.

Re: Looking for a design

Are you asking about the folder system to organize designs? Or a design?
If it’s the folder, I uploaded one into our old group, but it’s not necessary to get one, you can easily make your own.
Just create a folder and name it with your name of choice. Then make more folders within it with names to indicate what is in them. Examples could be by design type: Flowers, Animals, Holiday etc. and or by the designers.
The important thing is to keep organized in a system that makes sense to you!

Re: Difficult Choice

SewingRose
 

Susan I'm sure you will love sewing on your 9450...was thinking of you yesterday when sewing on mine!  Keeping your 6600 as a backup is a good idea if you are sewing with different coloured thread and/or stitch etc.  My backup machine is a Brother PQ1500S (now with LED lighting, so technically an SL) and when I'm making jeans I do the seams on the 9450, seam finishes on the overlocker and topstitching on the Brother, this makes the whole process much quicker as you aren't re-threading etc for each stage, same goes for bags/jackets/etc.

Have fun ;-)


Basting box failure resolved

Kay Davis
 

Hi, just wanted to let you all know that I followed all the suggestions given to me about how to get the basting box to stitch out correctly on my 500E. What finally solved the issue was pulling up the bobbin thread to the top and holding the top and bottom threads together as the machine started stitching the basting box. It stitched perfectly. Thanks for all your suggestions and support. Due to wrist issues I use this method very often and needed to figure this out.  This is an awesome group!  Thanks, Kay


Re: Sewing chair

Kathleen Smith
 

You might want to look for adjustable tables.  I can never get the chair high enough.  I think Sew Easy makes a portable adjustable table.

I found it easier to lower my table.  I had to cut off a bit or the legs on my tables and then a readily available chair worked well at my sit down quilter and my domestic machine.  I have a taller table for my embroidery machine, but I don't usually spend a long time sitting still in front of that machine.  I found that I had to use a booster for the foot pedal with the taller tables.  With the lower tables I can put the foot pedal on the floor and have the best ergonomic posture for me.  Being short is a challenge sometimes, right?

This chair is very comfortable with back support and soft cushion, comes in black or gray ... https://www.staples.com/Staples-Ardfield-Mesh-Task-Chair-Black/product_2630432

I'm close to your height and love this chair with the adjustable features. When putting it together you can either put the arm rests on or leave them off. Staples ships pretty fast, too.

These are lovely! My husband was an avid woodworker and would have been as impressed as I am. He too liked to make things pretty by using different kinds of wood in a project. Your husband is very skilled and talented!

Re: Sewing chair

Seems like I am always on the edge of my chair when sewing so I changed to a stool w/ wheels because was not using the chair back or arms.  Much better and adjustable height too.
