Re: quilting on the 12000

There is a Janome Acufil Quilting Kit for the 12000 (and 14000) that will include the ASQ22 Magnetic quilting hoop, software, and  designs. I have seen quite a bit of variation in prices over time, but if you are interested, you can check with dealers/suppliers for prices and availability.  Acufil can be used for edge to edge (e2e) quilting, and also if you have ASQ22, there is a topper from Designs in Machine Embroidery (DIME) as well...or even ‘make your own’ if you are ‘handy’ or so inclined. The topper ‘may’ be ‘easier’ to use for large quilts than the Janome magnetic clamps...personal preference...the hoop does not need to be removed from the machine...just remove the topper and reposition the quilt. The topper only fits the ASQ22 magnetic quilting hoop.

Hi Sherryl, If you having trouble with the magnetic clips holding the sandwich in the hoop, try using binder clips instead.  The Medium size tends to work best for me.

You can use that foot for attaching elastic, though it's very limited in the size of elastic it will accommodate. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijLipo5FfzA

The ASQ22 is the quilt hoop. It comes with magnets that clamp down and around your quilt to hold it in place. This short Janome video gives a quick demo of how it's used. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ea_OMo2QYIM

What I was explaining is that in my experience with the 2 brands of machines, the Brother/Babylock feet don't work on a Janome due to the needle drop position.

The Janome feet will work on a Brother/Babylock, but the needle drop position might still be an issue, depending on the foot.
For example a Janome M foot for overedge stitching wouldn't work on a Brother because the needle might hit the pins on the foot. The spacing is different between the 2 brands.
Some may work, some not, so be careful!
It's not only about the adapter and ankle!

Re: ruler foot

Well, if you are sure then the only thing I can think of is the adapter is different, although it is the one that came with the machine. I use Janome feet on a regular basis on the PQ1500SL (in fact used one just yesterday).  Love this S/S machine as so many feet are compatible, both from modern and vintage domestic machines and industrials, at last count I have 60+ feet plus the buttonhole attachment and still searching for a high/low shank adapter so I can use the vintage zigzag attachment.  ;-)

Is the 14000 a high shank machine?

thanks

Re: I know that Janome and Brother are both high shank, but some feet aren't compatible due to needle drop position...snap-on feet are ok as the adapter is Brother compatible, it's just the screw-on feet."
I had a Babylock (Same as Brother machine) and the feet were never compatible with my Janome machines due to the needle drop position.
It didn't matter if it was a snap on foot or a screw on foot, the feet didn't work at all, the needle would hit the foot.

Re: ruler foot

Can't help specifically with your machine models but I have a Janome Ruler Work Foot for my 9450, however the needle drop position doesn't line up with the Brother PQ1500SL.  Both machines are high shank and I wanted to be able to use the rulers on both machines so I bought a generic ruler foot on eBay, the seller stated it was compatible and he/she was correct.  I've since done ruler quilting on both machines, but suggest if you get hold of a ruler foot, attach it to both of your machines and turn the handwheel slowly to check needle drop position. 

For my machines I know that Janome and Brother are both high shank, but some feet aren't compatible due to needle drop position...snap-on feet are ok as the adapter is Brother compatible, it's just the screw-on feet.  The generic ruler work feet are much lower cost and clear plastic, they are also height adjustable at the screw due to a slotted area in the foot.  I've got in the habit of doing a slow rotation with the handwheel everytime I change feet...saves breaking a needle andalso putting a hole in the foot!

Hope this helps?  ;-)


Re: 15000 Quiltmaker v3 Upgrade question

Was the PC-2 foot used first in the Yarn Embroidery package with the  9000 or 10,000?  I remember using the foot and little cone to do couching when I was not embroidering ( of course my memory could be faulty!)

Re: Inconsistent tension on 1500

Suzanne Martin
 

I bought my 15k Horizon around May 2017. I have the manual with page 159
showing how to clean the upper thread guide. I don't like to remove the
plate as it is hard to do and I'm concerned I'll break something. Hardly
gets much thread dust in that area anyway. I can see why this option would
have been taken away due to the screws that some may be tempted to loosen or
tighten.

Later s/w upgraded to the Quiltmaker with HP plate and foot.

There is a difference between the two commonly known as Quiltmaker. The original 15K was updated to be called Quiltmaker from Memory Craft 15000.

It also has the removable thread quide which is on pg 159 of the original manual. If you have the Quiltmaker that came out as that machine having that name, your manual does not show removing the guide. Look on pg 169, only shows cleaning the bobbin area.  Strange they removed this from the new machine as it stated in the old manual to clean it once a month.  Maybe the changes they made eliminate cleaning that.  I hope this helps the confusion. Aren't there other names in the world they could use? Ha, Claire S.

My 15000 Quiltmaker was purchased in the Autumn of 2017, it's the first version of the Quiltmaker editions with the pink strip under the screen. The previous machines had either turquoise or silver strips, and on those machines the cover could be removed for cleaning.
I've looked at my original service manual and it does not have instructions to remove the panel, I just downloaded the most recent online manual and it does not give instructions either, and because it does not, my assumption is that the newest machines still cannot have the cover removed. I could be wrong.
Anyone have a brand new 15000 they've purchased within the last year to tell us differently?

Is this important iformation?
I think so, because if the lint is building up and causing tension trouble we should know if there's something we can do about it ourselves without having to take it in for the service tech to do it for us. Especially in these days when most Janome shops are working completely by appointments only.

Thanks Favy.  That makes since...I was having trouble figuring out why they called it PC...but now know the C is for Couching.

I wonder if PC-2 is for yarn couching?  Is there a diagram(pic) beside it?
