The largest hoop that came with the Janine 9850 is 8.5” x 9.25” measured from inside edge to inside edge.

Think I figured it out. The quilting stitches that come on the machine can not be made that much larger without specific software. The largest I can expand them to is 1 3/4” x 1 3/4 which is very small for quilting and somewhat disappointing. This is not at all what I was expecting but now I can move on and know that it is necessary to purchase patterns to get what I want. Thank you for letting me know about this quilt pattern site. Purchasing a pattern is my next step.

Gwen, Your cousin might like a distraction from his wife’s illness, asking him for an opinion shouldn’t add to his stress. Also a call from you might be welcome, you can chat a bit and just find out how his stress level is before asking anything of him.

I would phone the shop where you had your machine serviced and just ask a few questions. I’m not sure what “clicking” sound you are hearing, but my machine clicks when I engage something ie: ask it to “go home”. It also makes the clicking sound of the engaging of the arm - like you’d expect when you push a lever. If those are what you are hearing that is normal. The needle threader however, could very easily go out of adjustment in travelling but that wouldn’t be a something that would normally happen, but I’m saying it’s possible. Let’s just hope that the technician wasn’t a “new” person on the job and didn’t think to ask for help if it was needed. I wouldn’t be to hard of the store, but I do understand your frustration as a hour X2 isn’t enjoyable when it shouldn’t be needed, especially when you may not have any other reason to make the trip. My city is only about a 30-45 minute cross over when you aren’t in heavy traffic so one can easily spend that time in a vehicle just going to visit someone or shop on the opposite side of it. If you decide to make this trip, take a friend along and go out for a nice lunch while they check your machine out - make an appointment first so that they work on it while you are there. Also do as another suggested and take some fabrics you typically sew and do a test before you leave the dealership. You might do this also when you get there to show them what you are experiencing.

Now, what you hope doesn’t happen is something that just happened to me with my iPhone. A friend was trying to call me and I didn’t answer, didn’t get her messages because there was NO SOUND. What I’d forgotten, was that when I went to church last Sunday 5 days ago, I had turned on the “silence” button above the sound control buttons. Totally didn’t even think about it, when I went seeking the problem - I went into settings and nothing seemed to be wrong there, when I pressed the “+””-“ buttons on the side, the sound level changed on my screen. I phoned the service provider and even when he asked if I had turned that button off, I didn’t “get it”, when I did finally “get it”, I felt so dumb. However, now I can phone myself to find the phone when I put it down and can’t find it. I’m just saying that I hope you get your machine problem solved, easier than the silly episode I went through this morning.

Janome folks:  A big THANK YOU for those who read my thread regarding the bouncing, noisy bobbin. I am sooooo glad the problem has been solved by the shop.   I appreciate all the suggestions and comments.   I will tell you that I have stopped using generic pre-wound bobbins, even Janome pre-wounds. After checking the pre-wounds in my stash, I was somewhat amazed at how poor the quality was--most had some sort of flaw or burr present.I then purchased a box of the pink, Cherry Blossom special edition bobbins and a spool of Janome bobbin thread and wound my own bobbins.  I use the pink bobbins exclusively for embroidery, so if I see a pink bobbin, I know it is Janome 90 weight bobbin thread on it. The pink bobbins come in a good plastic, see-through box, so I can see at a glance what I am looking for in my sewing drawer.   I should say that I have quit using the pre-wounds for embroidery, but I have not encountered any problems with generic or other pre-wound bobbins for my sewing-only machines----a Janome Skyline 7 and a Pfaff from the 80s.  Neither of them do embroidery; they are reserved for ordinary sewing.    Nevertheless, I also ordered a bag of  25 Janome branded bobbins which I will phase in as the generics and pre-wounds are used up.  In for a penny, in for a pound, as they say. Might as well use the Janome brand with my Janome machines.
Happy stitchuing!!

Hello, I have a Janome 550e(which I love), when putting designs on the USB stick, is there a guideline? I just started doing ITH projects, seems the machine does not read all of the hoop changes in the pattern?

Sewing Rose-----Can you describe the problem that you had that the dealer could not figure out, but you finally found it yourself?  What did you do to fix the problem?  I am sure others who are on this Group would like to know, too.   I am happy to report that my problematic MC500E with its bouncing, noisy bobbin has been working well--and quietly- since I got it back home. I have used the embroidery machine almost every day since I got it back.

Yesterday I bought some quilting designs from this site, which is having a sale right now as well ...  https://www.kreativekiwiembroidery.co.nz/quilting-outline.html

I have absolutely NO affiliation but I did sign up for their newsletter from the beginning and often buy their designs as well.  They also have a lot of YouTube videos and post a new one every week.

I am planning a quilt at the moment and hope to start in a few weeks which is why I was looking for in-hoop quilting designs yesterday.   I have used their stippling designs on quilted jackets and cushions etc. 

Hope this helps?

Re: My 15000’s spa day

Gwen----Yes, it is frustrating that your machine has more wrong with it than before you took it in to your dealer for its Spa Day.  I have had similar experiences in the past, from different dealers.  My best advice is when you go to pick up the machine, take with you some of your own fabrics, a thumb drive with designs you typically use, stabilizers, threads you commonly use, your usual needle and a full bobbin. Do not leave the shop until you have set up your machine and sewn several samples of the type of sewing that you normally do. Embroider  a full design that is not one of the built-in designs,  make a small quilt sandwich and do some quilting, or whatever other kinds of sewing that you typically do. That way, you will not have made the 2-hour round trip for nothing. If the machine checks out, that is great, but you described several things that were wrong that had not been problems before you took it in. Probably some of those things could be addressed while you wait. Find a nice quilt shop to browse in, or take a book and find a Starbuck's where you can spend an hour or so while they re-fix your machine. There is no excuse to call a customer back to pick up their machine when it is not really ready for pickup. I am sure the dealers want people coming into the shops, but with a repair, you just want to pick it up and get back home.   If you are not happy with the machine once you get it back home, it does not improve the relationship between you and the shop. Be proactive in making sure the machine has been properly serviced, since that is what you pay for.
Happy stitching,

You an get Janome on the phone yourself. They are wonderful! After having my 15000 at the dealer’s 3 times in 4 months, I called. They had the ‘educator’ called who had me go through every conceivable solution. She even had me put the phone to to the machine to listen to the noise. I would try calling before driving an hour plus. 


Re: My 15000’s spa day

I've had a similar problem with my 15000 after it was upgraded to Quiltmaker.  The upper tension discs aren't opening, which causes the thread to break.  It is like when the presser foot is down and trying to pull thread through needle.    I am to take it back to my dealer, and they will get Janome on the phone to find out why this is happening.

My 15000’s spa day

William D Lawson
 

Hello everyone,

I took my 15000 to her spa day a while back. I just asked him to clean and check everything out.  I don’t think he even tried to run it or sew with it using the threader or the thread cutter or the embroider unit.

Problem number one- My needle threader was working fine and now it is hanging up as the hook leaves the eye of the needle. It is still working but it worries me. 

Problem number two -  every time I use the thread cutter, the thread is so tight in the upper part of the machine, that the thread snaps up and unthreads the needle.  When I just pull the thread carefully, the needle actually bends. I’ve tried using the adjustments under the setting tab but it still unthreads every time.  So frustrating.

Problem number three - when I get ready to embroider and I’ve opened the arm, the machine makes a clicking noise as it goes into position.  It embroidered ok but it makes the same noise when it goes back into the home position.

I did not have ANY of these problems before I sent it in.  I am beyond livid.  The Janome shop is a little more than an hour away and I don’t  feel comfortable leaving my machine again. Are these easy to fix?  Would it be possible for the service tech to fix it while I wait?  Has anyone else had any similar issues?

I purchased my Skyline 5 and my Quilt Maker Pro 18 with Prostitcher Premium from this shop.  My cousin used to work in his shop.  His wife is going through some health issues and I really don’t want to add to his stress but I also am not happy with my machine right now.  Are these easy things that he should have noticed?

Thanks in advance,
Gwen Lawson


Long quilting patterns for 9850?

Hi, Betty.  I often quilt in my embroidery hoops. In fact, I am creating a design combo for a friend’s quilt for her newest grandson-to-be right now.  For this project, I purchased several designs that were quilt ‘theme’ consistent and am considering which I want to use. These are edge-to-edge (e2e) patterns  designed for embroidery machines, but I plan to use them as ‘block’ designs. There are ‘block’ designs as well, depending on what you want, and since a long arm quilter lived here, I also have “theme” long arm e2e designs, in case she wants it quilted on the long arm instead. 

There are lots of quilting patterns for embroidery hoops created by others. Designs by JuJu, to name one I am remembering off the top at the moment, have lots of quilting designs but they are by far not the only ones that sell quilting patterns for QITH.  I also buy long arm designs so that’s what’s coming to mind mostly right now. 😁

Check the size before purchasing the design to make sure it will fit in your hoops. 

You also mentioned you’d like to ‘program each square’ so I’m not sure if you mean “digitize” or “compose ready-made” designs. I also digitize my own quilting designs using Wilcom Hatch, but there are other digitizing software packages, too. They might be a bit pricier than you’d expect so it’s your decision. 

I have a Janome 11000 v.3.10, and a Janome 15000 v.3, both of which have AcuQuilt, which comes with a special magnetic hoop designed for QITH. For the 11000, I have two sizes of AcuQuilt magnetic, quilting hoops. I don’t know if there is a ‘quilting’ hoop for your 9850, but I see in the manual there are some quilting designs preloaded in the 9850 by Janome for two of the hoops. You could certainly hoop a test quilt sandwich and give it a try.

I do a wavy stitch with a walking foot. Then I weave the opposite way on the second pass so it crosses the first one and makes the pattern.

I'm not familiar with your machine, but just looked it up.  I'm "guessing" you want to use the embroidery part of the machine vs. the sewing part to do the quilting?  If you're unable to use an embroidery stitch that you like (built in to your machine), you might want to purchase a quilting pattern from one of the embroidery sites (Embroidery Library comes to mind and they have all kinds of patterns and sizes).  If you want to do it on your machine (manually), you might want to try stitch 5 under the quilt menu (page 1 of 4 stitches).  Hope this will help.  Dottie in Texas

Re: Adding stitches to S9

Mary Mills
 

Oh thank you so much!  I haven’t been able to get it to work.  I will print your instructions and try again.   I presume that the stitch you gave to the group is in the files.  I will look through them later today.   Thanks so much again!   Xxxx


Re: Adding stitches to S9

First of all create the stitch in Stitch composer. (Or are you using my french knot that I gave the group? If so save it on your computer where you know where it is!)
Then copy it onto your usb into the Ordf folder. (If you're creating the stitch yourself this is where you also save it, in the ordf folder.)
At the machine:
Decorative Stitches: Created Stitches
Touch the tab for bringing a design into the machine:

The Usb will open, find the stitch and select it.
The Stitch will now be in the Created Stitch section of the machine until, if ever, you delete it.
To delete a stitch, First touch the trash can button, then the stitch you want to delete.
