My New Years resolution, it’s to make sure I sew as often as I can.  To make lots of lovely and useful things, both sewn and embroidered.  It’s gonna be a tough one to keep but I will try.

Re: Annual service on 15k

I have never paid extra for service on any embroidery unit. That is a part of the machine and not an extra unit on Janome. I would get a second opinion.

When I take my 11000 for service, the embroidery unit is not removable so they look at the embroidery function as well as the sewing functions.  So, it never occurred to me not to take the embroidery unit with my 15000...in its protective case, of course.  Although removable on my 15000, the embroidery unit is part of the machine 'as sold standard' and 'spec'd' by the manufacturer, and it seems to me that it should be included in the annual service.

If I took ONLY the embroidery unit...not the rest of the 15000, or if the embroidery unit was an 'option' purchased separately (I have seen at least one model from a different manufacurer where the embroidery unit was an optional accessory), I could easily understand making a separate service appointment and/or separate charge.

To be honest, I don't know if my dealer charges separately for the machine and the embroidery unit, but I understand the additional monetary issue, too, since your dealer charges additionally to service the embroidery unit. 

If your embroidery unit is working fine, but the service cost is inconvenient for you at this time, it would certainly be your option to have it serviced now or wait for a more convenient time for you and your budget.

I have my 15000 and the embroidery unit serviced together every year.  Worth the money.

I would do it, I had thread wound around the gears of mine and it quit working. Now 8 need a whole new unit. Had I known it could have been serviced, it may have saved me a lot of money.

I have the Simplicity brand bobbin winder and don't recommend it. I never use it and it takes up storage space!

I have the small sidewinder and the larger Sidewinder Plus that was branded by Simplicity and had a built in vertical thread holder for winding from cross wound thread without adding extra twist.  I really like both of them a lot.  Saves wear and tear on the machines and avoid having to unthread it to wind a bobbin.

Re: automatic bobbin winder

Sally Silvers
 

I have an expensive metal bobbin winder, used for longarm and it was about $100.  I also have a SideWinder, less than $30.  My go to is the SideWinder.


Re: automatic bobbin winder

Alison Wheelock
 

Yes, I have the Side-winder by Singer. I love it. It runs on either batteries or with the included electrical cord. My first one lasted well over 15 years (I'm not sure exactly how long), and I just bought a replacement last month because the first one's electrical connection became wonky. I'm pretty sure you can get one at JoAnn's, but I ordered mine last month from Amazon because I needed it quickly. Although I have a 15000, I only use my Side-winder to wind bobbins.

Mah…. I have an SWF winder.  Where do you live… contact me separately for $ details.

Sidewinder, I think is what I got.  It's okay as a winder, don't remember what it cost but you can get them pretty much everywhere, but only used for winding long arm bobbins.  I buy Janome pre-wounds for the embroidery and only wind bobbins as needed.
