Just install the Dropbox app on your PC and you can transfer between the Mac and the PC directly, no USB required.


download designs to usb/pc

Carole O'Mara
 

I would like to download embroidery designs from the internet using my MAC using Dropbox and then transfer to USB. That has worked in the past. But now I would like to transfer from that USB to my PC into HLS. I don’t want to have only some designs on the USB and some on the PC in HLS.

How do I download from Dropbox to USB to PC?

TIA,
Carole

Thank you Jim, can always count on your expertise.  I contacted a Janome dealer and waiting to hear if I can get a new needle plate ordered.

Oh my gosh!!  I can't thank you enough Andrea!!!  I took the broken needle and measured it with my digital caliper and got the thickness of the needle, then got out my quilting needles and found one the same size.  I cut it to size and put a coat of Gorilla super glue and left it dry and then put on a second coat.  I am waiting for that to dry.  I am hoping she will be as good as new!!!  I just can't imagine retiring my serger because of a needle.  She still is the best.!!  You are a life saver!

"I’ve always found, if I use the Janome prewound bobbins I use the red or normal bobbin case it has a different tension to the yellow.  The thread on a Janome prewound is probably thinner, it’s usually either 90 or 100, where as we often buy 60 or 80 bobbin thread. "

Yes, I was thinking about that.  Will have to try it.

Still don't know why the top thread is not picking up the bobbin thread when I start a new design??

Cynthia, I have replaced the “needle” on my serger many times over the years as well as my customers! The length is important, it should not be the same length as the stitch finger or the stitches will not be released and will bunch up. Remove the broken “needle” and select a straight pin that will fit into the groove, then place the “needle” in the slot and secure it with a drop of super glue. I use a thin quilting straight pin with the ball cut off.

embroidery on S9 issues

Toni Valenstein
 

I've been doing a lot of embroidery lately.  #1 - I found that when I begin a new project, the top thread is not picking up the bobbin thread, and pulling through the to the top of the plate. (top thread stitches, but not connecting with bobbin thread).   I need to manually turn the wheel to pick up the thread and pull it through the plate.  After that I don't have that issue.  #2 - The bobbin I was using, was used up so to make it quick and easy, I used the "Janome" prewound bobbin.  The tension was completely off and the top showed more bobbin thread than the top thread.  Went back to winding my own bobbins and it works just fine.  I am using the bobbin holder with the yellow dot.  #3 - when jumping from one part of the design to another, it's not doing a great job of cutting the thread and sucking it under the piece I'm working on.  I constantly have to stop and trim it off.

It's still available as a part from a dealer - 888601003. Unfortunately we did not keep any parts. I have in the past done the cut-off-a-needle trick. It doesn't work very well, because the original needles are actually held in place by friction and slight crimping of the edges of the plate. It might work for a while until you can get a new plate. You might try some of the large online dealers to see if they would ship one to you.

Elizabeth Ann,

My 15000 App is at Version1.5.2(18)-20 and I just did a re-load from the APP store for it.  My foot-book is V 4.2.2(15)-20 also just re-loaded.  You had an error in the My1500 App, so it had me do a check to see what it was on-line, today February 24th.

Jim, I broke a needle on my Compulock A plate for my serger this morning.  After all these years!  Is that needle replaceable or do you have any idea where I might get a new plate.  Do you possibly have one?  Could I cut off a needle and place it in there?  Oh I am just sick.  I still love this machine!  Thanks for any help, Cindy

Based on what others have gotten from Amazon, maybe we were just lucky to get something that worked. I've removed the link from the tape, so no one else will have problems. Your choice is probably as good as any.

Jim, I'm confused.  The Gaffer Tape Amazon link is for 

Polyken 223 Multi-Purpose Duct Tape: 3 in. x 60 yds. (White).  


Is this really what Diane used on her hoop?  Wouldn't this be a better option (also from Amazon)?

Another great tape to have is 3M's Transpore.  It's fantastic on the back of rulers and also use it for the underneath of in the hoop items as masking tape just seems to roll on me. Ceil

Not sure if I share this here but I ordered a Creative Grids ruler from Amazon (Angela Walter's Sid) and it had a defect.  When I contacted them, they sent me to their distributor who wanted photos and the name of the site I had used.  I complied.  I shared this in Facebook groups and had people telling me that I should have gone to my local store, that those rulers are only sold by Angela on her site, that it would not be profitable for anyone to make counterfeit rulers, etc. so that I regretting trying to be helpful to anyone.  But the distributor did tell me that it has become a big problem for Creative Grids and that even though the site I ordered from was one of their authorized dealers, that the system Amazon employs for sorting and distribution of items with the same (some fake) SKU's sometimes causes the real ones and fake ones to be intermingled. (Remember the OV glove fiasco?)   I did not do this to save money either even though it was a savings of about $.o2!  Buyer beware!  But the distributor did say they were trying to work with Amazon to fix this situation.  Ceil

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.


Re: Quilt topper

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
