Hi Jim, I have a version of the Janome App  as 1.5.2(18)-21  and Foot Book App as 4.2.2(14)-21 . Is this the latest version of both? 
Thanks ,
Elizabeth Ann

Re: DIY - make your own magnetic hoop for the 15000 using the GR hoop

I haven’t tried the GR hoop DIY (thank you for the instructions!) or ordered the tape, but I have used the 3M tape (link below) on my hoops for several years. It is very sticky, holds well, but leaves no residue on the hoops. Someone recommended it, I think in this group.

Jim and Diane,

Is "Gaffer Tape" or "duct tape" used in your GR hoop magnetic hoop work around?   I ordered from Amazon the item linked in your email.  Sadly it looks like it's been around for a while, is very tacky and says it is "duct tape".   Apparently they are not the same thing.  In my opinion, this item doesn't appear to be what you'd want on the hoop especially if needing to remove it to use the hoop for an embroidery.

One of the ugly secrets about Amazon is the warehouses, aka fulfillment centers. There are counterfeit products in abundance, mostly from China. We're in Dallas, where product turnover is very high. This type of tape is not something many would buy, and it may actually be shipped by a supplier that sells through Amazon, but has their own inventory. Return it if you can and see if you can find something similar locally. We've been buying heavily on Amazon since the lockdown, just to avoid going out. I've filled the Prius gas tank 3 times in all of 2020 and it's still half full. Because we have so many things delivered Diane has put a basket on the porch with snacks for delivery people. We would encourage everyone to do this. They don't get paid a lot, and really appreciate it.

You need to import it from Acudesign.  I use dropbox, I save the unzipped design to Dropbox and import it from there.  You have to enable Dropbox first in Acudesign settings first, I think it will import from iCloud too but haven’t tried it.  You can’t just save it directly to Acudesign.  Not sure if it will import from Airstitch, but airstitch will unzip it.  I used to save zipped design to airstitch, then the unzipped design to Dropbox, then import into Acudesign.  There are probably other ways, but that works/worked for me

Anyone using AcuDesign.  When I try to download an (unzipped) design from my email, using gmail.  I don?t have AcuDesign to choose in the list.  Also not in more.
I have looked at any setting I can find.  
Thank for any ideas.

Cheryl.      Thanks so very much for all this information.    I will have to rethink and ponder this for a while.    I want to keep my brain cells working (LOL) but wondering if I really want to go to the expense and the time spent learning how to digitize.  I know it would give me a sense of accomplishment to do it but.........   again.   Many thanks.

Beth,

I’ve had all the Digitizer Programs from Version Digitizer 10000, upgraded and all the version in-between to the very latest which is Digitizer V5.5.  It meant new dongles almost each time - the updates were free to fix “bugs” in the program or add something that was either forgotten or added to the Janome machine that corresponded to that version of software.  I would highly recommend that you try to at least upgrade to the Version 4 of the software as it will have bigger hoops to digitize larger designs and copy them to USB’s for use in an embroidery machine.  At Version 5 the software did a change and it was quite a surprise to me when I first loaded my program - it was almost like learning something altogether new.  I’ve gotten so that I can navigate in it but I wasn’t a very happy camper to begin with.  So what I’m trying to say is if you have a fairly new embroidery machine, you might want to get the new version and learn it instead of struggling with a program that is about 10 or more years old and doesn’t want to load onto your Windows 10 computer easily.  You will/may run into problems every time Windows does a major update and that is VERY frustrating.  If you have Janome embroidery machines it is the best program to use.  

Now if you are even thinking a little bit about digitizing, Janome has another program called Artistic Digitizer - it is not as expensive as Digitizer and if you haven’t digitized before now, you might want to consider that one.  Janome, in North America at least, seems to be moving in that direction.  Personally, I like Digitizer much more, but then it is familiar and Artistic seems quite foreign and difficult to move around to find “how” to do what I want, but that again is “learning”.  I’m 75 - not done wanting to learn, but I don’t really feel like taxing myself if the FUN is being lost in where the learning is happening.  Also right now Janome has Artistic Digitizer on a special where you can download it and use it for a limited time - you could try that.  I went down the “rabbit hole” to see if I could find the website, but didn’t.  Go to

Janome America sent the upgrade USB to dealers only, and provided the Horizon Link Suite upgrade by email when notified by the dealer of an update being done. In countries other than the US and Canada, the upgrade USB was included in the box of Quilt Maker optional accessories and it also contained the HLS update.


Re: Quilt topper

Suzi Bohannon
 



Thanks to Jim and Diane for the footbook app and also for GR hoop use.
Question to anyone,  when you received the upgrade to 15000 for quilt maker did the dealer give you the usb with it?  Was told by dealer they don't provide that.  However another group on Facebook said that my Horizon Link upgrade is provided on it.
Can anyone confirm this?  Should i try to contact Janome myself?
Thanks Suzi in Florida

Re: Hope you and Diane are safe

Cheryl Paul
 

I’m glad that your family is doing OK, Jim and Diane. We are prepared for the cold here as we get WINTER every year in Saskatchewan. Only today and it is -19 C (-2.2F) and our furnace QUIT. I was feeling chilly as we were playing a board game with our grandson. Jim went down to check the furnace and realized it hadn’t started when I increase the temperature a few degrees above 20C. Our son had problems with his furnace so borrowed our space heaters that we use for the garage and a shed. We’ll have to get them back from him so we don’t freeze over night. We don’t want to pay overtime charges to call a repair man at night if we don’t absolutely need to. So you see, we can’t win them all.

Hope everyone’s weather changes for the better.

Re: inserting words

Kaye Lessard
 

You need to resequence the words to before the backing stitches-
If I remember select words then use the arrows in the objects propertybox at bottom - right side
To move part up or down

Dianne-

Just skip ahead in the stitching order on your machine, stitch out the lettering.  Then go back and do the backing for your project. 

I have found that anything I add to a design, stitches out after the initial design is finished.  So- I do this often.  It's easy to skip ahead and then go back.

You don't say which program you're using, nor what machine.
But, If you don't know how to move the words or objects in your program you can just travel through the design and only stitch the parts you want to, when you want to stitch them.
