It's not actually a quilt, but a placemat. I've attached some photos.

I'm not crazy about Google getting a little richer with our video, but at least everyone should be able to see it here.

Totally agree but You Tube is a great option.  Was wishing she had held up the quilt for us to see all of it!

It's actually in FootBook now, at the end of the original video. It's about 3 minutes in.

Hi Jim, from the snowy city of Saskatoon

Are you going to put the video into Footbook as well?  I have really used that video more than one person should need to, but it is the BEST one I have seen and I've been in personal demonstrations with Liz Thompson, our Canadian Education Manger - also many times.  I always want to refresh to improve my application skills with that attachment, I need things to be PERFECT - or my version of perfect, which is sometimes questionable.

So one of the nice things about the 550e is that compared to other Janome embroidery machines it has a small footprint because the hoop is side driven rather than back driven.  So basically you just need enough space behind the machine for the needle to go to the lowest point on the largest hoop.  So you will want about 18” clearance behind the needle, but you also have to allow for the extension table.  That said, I think 36” deep should be plenty.  Sorry I cannot be more precise, but I have the 500e not the 550e which has the slightly larger hoop.  But the layout is similar.

One heads up that surprises some new 500e/550e owners.  Unlike most other Janome machines, this one needs regular oiling by the owner in a number of locations.  They are shown in your manual and additionally there are some YouTube videos that help demonstrate it as well.

Hello all,
Is it possible to be happy and overwhelmed at the same time?  My husband and I drove out to the dealers to drop off my 9000 for a deep clean and pick up a new bobbin case for my 12000 this weekend. While I was looking around and drooling over the M7, he was purchasing the M7 and a 550E for me.  I was so surprised.  Our dealer was doing a virtual show this week and had wonderful deals. We got a trade in deal without actually having to trade my machine so now I have to find space for the old and new machines. My husband likes to know I have a backup when needed.  

How much space would you suggest for the 550E?   I really want to take full advantage of the M7 so I think I need to step up to a bigger table for it.  Currently, my 12000 sits on an adjustable height 23.5 by 47 in Ikea table which I have to pull from the wall.  Is a table at 36 inches deep enough for quilting?  Unfortunately, my crafting/sewing room is small at 8 by 12.  Sewing, quilting, and paper/vinyl crafting takes up a lot of space.  There is a Cricut Maker as well.

I haven't posted for awhile, and had trouble getting in to the group. Was told I do not have a password or profile. The password I thought I had didn't work.  Please advise. I did want to add my two cents that I would be happy to pay a fee for the good advice we get, as well as the sense of humor that really helps when we are frustrated with a project.

Good morning everyone. I hope everyone is safe and healthy.  Quilting has been
my “sanity saver” during this time of isolation.  

I have been working on an embroidered Christmas Tree skirt with LOTS of thread changes.

My threader has always worked perfectly until yesterday.  I know some have had problems 
from the beginning. I’ve seen suggestions for slightly bending your hook so that it hits the hole 
correctly but I don’t know how to keep the threader in the down position so I can adjust it. 

Jim, is this something I can do on my own or should I just take it in?  My repair man is really backed up.
My machine would be sitting in the shop for 5 to 6 weeks.  I would be lost without it for that long. Any
suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you for being here for us. We all really appreciate all you do.
Gwen Lawson

ps....  I recently purchased a Quilt Maker Pro 18 with Prostitcher Premium and it is amazing!!!
 I am such a happy quilter.

As you've probably noticed, member emails are obscured for privacy. That also makes it harder for malware to harvest email addresses from the daily digest. Forward the post you want to message to onlinesewing-janome+owner@groups.io and I will get you what you need.

As it happens, the video cannot be viewed from Groups.io, so I have pulled it. As soon as I find a new home for it I will post a new link that works. Your patience is appreciated!
