Since this thread is way off topic, I'm going to lock it. Anyone who wants to ask about succulents can email me directly, or join the only Facebook group that I participate in. I got started in the hobby last year, the first real hobby I've had that is not directly linked to computer technology. After killing lots of plants I took this online course and that led to the 132 plants that now grace my office.


AcuEdit question

Pixey
 

I was just watching the AcuEdit video in the My15000 App and have a question. If I put my embroidery designs library up on iCloud, do I have to download the designs to the individual iPad’s Document folder for AcuEdit to access them. Or can AcuEdit access the design from the iCloud files app directly? Or send from the files app to AcuEdit?

Am looking for a shortcut to starting up my laptop every time I want to look at a design in my collection or send a quick project to the machine.

If I do have to download it to the individual iPad, how do I manage the Documents folder, because I don’t see that folder on my iPad when I use the Files app.

Thanks,
Pixey

Here in the UK this model is out of stock until November so if it is the same where you are there will be no hope of holiday sales unfortunately! That is a real shame. I have a 550e which I got for Christmas last year. I have not used it very much as I prefer my 1500. I do find the bigger hoop very handy and the stitch outs are excellent. It also runs very smoothly. However having said that I have decided to sell it as I really do not have the space for it.

I don’t have a 6500, but here is a link to the full instruction manual for the machine...if that was the book you are referring to.

Jim, will your  "app for managing succulents” be available for those of us on the West Coast that have many, many plants and varieties?  

How’s your son in Los Gatos with all of the fires and smoke so close in Boulder Creek?

500e vs 550e question

Pixey
 

I am considering whether I want to upgrade from the 500e to the 550e as we start getting into holiday sales. I wondered if anyone in the group had done so and could share whether there were any other improvements between the 500e and the 550e other than the larger hoop capacity? Such as smoother, quieter sewing, etc. Comparing the two manuals and information on the Janome site, I am not spotting many differences. But sort of like a new car model, the 500e was a 1st generation of a new direction for Janome and the 550e offered the opportunity to fix little things.

Thanks,
Pixey

It's actually for a client, an app for managing succulents. I have been using it to track my 132 plants.

Re: warning message on 12000

I was told changing the foot pressure might cure it, but it did not. I will note your invoice reading to the repair shop, thanks.


Re: warning message on 12000

Hi Sherryl

i had this problem earlier this year.  When I asked here it was suggested that I should alter the auto presser foot pressure.  It continued so as soon as my dealer opened up after the lockdown it went for its annual service with a note detailing this problem.  According to the invoice “reset auto presser auto initialising sensor position” has cured it!

Such a relief not to have that beeper going off every few stitches.  It only does it now each time I switch between foot plates as a reminder.

Re: To stitch regulator

Sally on the WE(s)T Side
 

I have the Janome 9400 updated and a Janome 6600P craigslist bargain.  Both are a dream come true for FMQ.  I would never ask for a stitch regulator because I always try the machines with them at quilt shows and they are never as smooth and quiet as my Janomes with sliding speed controllers.  It just takes a bit of time and daily practice at the machine and doodling on paper to make smooth hand movements that produce even stitches.

Sally, who failed a first attempt at FMQ in the 90's and was pleasantly surprised with success with the nice large bed Janome machines

Re: To stitch regulator

Ceil J
 

Before I ultimately bought my 15000, I looked at every brand and store that I could reasonably visit.   At one Bernina shop the owner told me that she didn't recommend the stitch regulator (much to my surprise) as it did have a learning curve and once it was mastered, many didn't use it anymore.  I tried it but was unable to get consistent stitches.  The owner said that with practice I would learn to get even stitches without the regulator.  When I tried on my Juki which is a straight stitch machine with speed control, I set the speed control to a certain spot that worked well with how I moved the fabric and was able to get somewhat good results.  But I really prefer to let the 15000 do my embroidery! 


Re: warning message on 12000

Jim Stutsman
 

Yes, it's definitely a sensor that is ever so slightly on the ragged edge of being misadjusted. Next time you take it in ask them to check the sensors on pages 34-40 of the 12000 service manual. Just checking them won't take that long, and adjusting is not a big time consumer. They'll probably complain about you asking to do this, so take a plate of brownies with you. it might help!


warning message on 12000

Sherryl Doran
 

I will be happily sewing along on my 12000, then suddenly, a warning message comes on that says to be sure I have the proper presser foot on. I do, so why am I getting this message. I told the repair shop about it when I took the machine in for cleaning, but they said it didn't do it when they were running it. I have determined that it USUALLY occurs after the machine has been running a while, maybe 45 minutes or so. If I am only doing regular sewing it is not really a problem, except for the annoyance of having to choose OK and then continuing. But if I am doing any decorative sewing or embroidery, BIG PROBLEM, because the machine wants to start over at the beginning of the pattern or design. Someone told me it is a sensor problem. Do I take it back to the shop and insist they run it until the warning message pops up for them? I do thoroughly clean under the stitch plate, bobbin case, etc. and it usually puts off another warning for a while.
