I have Digitizer Pro V.1.  You need a Windows 10 dongle driver for digitizer embroidery software.  Google this and you should find a site SafeNet (a digitizer dongle supplier).  I did finally get my program to open and work.

A friend sent me this as she never used it.   I can’t seem to get it downloaded to my computer that is running Windows 10.     It doesn’t recognize the USB that came with it.   Thanks for any information.

Unfortunately that version of Digitizer does not work with Windows 10. It’s not even compatible with Windows 8. There isn’t much you can do unless you have an old Windows computer.

There is no 5mm foot holder that could be used on the 15000, and trying to use that could cause big problems. You could use a 7mm high shank adapter with 7mm feet. There are two that you could use:

830504017 - 11000 foot holder

846572004 - 7700 foot holder

When using either of these you must be very careful to never set the stitch width or needle position outside the range of 7mm. Some feet, particularly after-market feet from 3rd party producers, may not work with this holder. It’s best to turn the hand wheel through a full stitch cycle when using a 7mm holder, just to be sure the needle won’t hit.

Smaller shank 5mm for the Janome 79mm

Not sure if I will be wording this correct or if this has been asked before. But is there an adapter we can buy for the Janome 15,000 that will turn the shank (which hold the feet) into a small size. Like mine I can put feet on it which the shank at the end is wider. I had bought some feet for a different machine which the part that you push the foot onto, pops and holds the feet, is smaller in size maybe a 7mm vrs a 9mm? Not sure this makes any sense. I have some hemming feet and binding feet I would love to use but they are smaller on top of the foot that pops on to the shaft

I understand lack of space!  Did you know that dog grooming arms (for grooming tables) will clamp onto table surfaces and you can get as many or as few as you need for whatever configuration necessary to support a project.  Lots of different kinds, and some fold up and/or come apart, and can be stored in minimal space when not in use.  (Yorkshire Terriers supervise everything I do!)

I will remember that, for when I need to know something, right now, no time to be using the machines.

You should check on facebook. The 300 is really old technology, however the tips here should relate to all embroidering. The procedures are the same. Now on a different aspect I had the 300E many years ago perhaps if you reply to my message here I can help you.  Virginia.

I joined this group thinking it was something that could help me with my Janome 300E embroidery machines when I run into a problem. But I have noticed that the machines you are talking about are different models. Do you know if here is a group that focuses on the 300E?

How great you are!! Not only do you create a magnetic hoop for the GR hoop, but you give us the part numbers AND make a ‘how to’ video. Since my sewing room is small my husband is planning a ceiling suspended system to accommodate hoop quilting and quilting with the dual feed foot.

Thank you so much for all you do for our group. You are sooooo appreciated!

Happy Valentine’s day.

ok, good to know, I will just stay on the group then. I got my machines in, I think 2007. They both work well, but you never know when something will become a problem. I have never needed to upgrade as they work well for my purposes. I have a craft business and sell embroidered towels among other things.

Welcome Linda. Back in the days when this group lived on Yahoo, there was a 300E specific group, but I don't know if it exists any more. However, unlike politics, this group is pretty much non-partisan. Many of the members own multiple machines and we can handle questions on almost any Janome model. I remember the 300E, as we sold quite a lot of them when we had a store. If you encounter a problem, please post it here. You'll get lots of help from folks who have been there, done that.

Thanks Diane and Jim for the video. I've linked in all the supplies so when we get resettled in our new home, I can order and try what Diane has done. I've not had a hard time with the included hoop magnets but always looking for a better way. I do use Patsy Thompson Quilt Suspension System to keep the quilt up off the embroidery arm. Works good for me.

Re: Auto threader for Janome 11k special edition

Jim Stutsman
 

The part you need is item 15 in the photo. We used to order batches of them. However at some point they stopped sending the individual plates and instead sent parts 14 & 15 already assembled. That made changing easier, since you can just pop it off by pressing down on it. You still have to loosen the screw to line up the hook with the needle eye either way. If you do find the plate by itself you'll need to remove the screws. Before doing that, put a piece of fabric over the arm of the machine to avoid the screws taking a dive down into it. It's a tedious process, but with care and patience you'll manage it. You'll most likely need to find a sympathetic Janome dealer to order the parts, which are inexpensive. Part numbers are listed below the picture.

Auto threader for Janome 11k special edition

Prudience Lewis
 

I know this has been addressed many times before, but I was not able to find any information on the Janome 11000 special edition concerning the threader.  All I would like to find out is what is the part so I can order it.  Most needle threaders are for the Janome 12000 and other Janome machines.  All of which use a different type of threader.  All I see is the needle threader plate available and this item does not look like the threader that would go on my machine.  Any information would help.  Can the threader be used like the Janome 12000 or other Janome threaders.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks, Prudience

Thank you. I was trying to figure something out for the GR hoop. Really wanted the larger quilting area. Hope you both are well. Still think of you every time I drive down Gaylord

One thing you might try and that is to thread the machine using both parts at the thread stand - it means that you have to loop the thread around the top.  It just adds a little extra tension.  I’ve started doing this with ALL my sewing on this machine - not because of skipped stitches, but because a friend suggested this to me and another friend (we always sewed together as often as we could before COVID and we all have the M7).  I’m not sure that is necessary for everything, but you might find it helps.  I’m not a free motioner but I’ve read and been told that the direction you move the fabric can make a difference and moving things too quickly or not at a steady pace, but that is only hearsay as I don’t do this technique.
