Re: Automatic threader probLem needle goes thru the needle hole but doesn’t engage the thread #file-notice

If you google the Janome (model of machine) repair manual it is a pdf to download. However once you do something to your machines and you are not a repair tech or dealer it voids your warranty. My feeling is for  expensive as our machines are it is worth whatever the fee to let the experienced and trained perso do it.  Just saying.

Do you have the link to the 15000 manual?

Item 2 - See the manual, page 128. The remaining bobbin thread sensor can be adjusted to leave less (-) or more (+) thread before warning about low bobbin.


2 things

1.Just an FYI to ck and re Check your machine. On my 12000, I was working on a fuzzy blanket. I had knockdown stitching done and then the name and Bible verse needed to stitch on top of the Knockdown (an Embrilliance software feature). I had to change my bobbin (next item) and when I put my hoop back in, the design was no longer on the screen to stitch. I ended up having to turn my machine off and start again. Machine asked if I wanted to start w the same design and I said yes and I assumed it would line it bk up where it needed to embroider the name, it did NOT and stupidly, I did not check to see where it was stitching first, which is why I say “ck and re check”. All in all, blanket is ok, not an order, and after washing, drying, fluffing it’s fine. J

 

2.My 12000 does not finish out a bobbin. Is there a setting I can use to get it to stitch to the end of each bobbin and if so, how and where do I find that setting?

 

Many thanks!! Joyce in GA

Where did you get the download for the Repair Manual for the 15000?  I only have the user’s manual.
thank you for the information and the great idea regarding video.

Cynthia,
That's a really good idea! The needle threader on the 15000 moves so fast, it's really hard to see if the thread went in the needle. And, it's good to know that the repair manual has that information. Thanks for sharing!

striplett3---My threader occasionally gets out of whack and looks like it is going through the needle's eye, but is not really going through. I have corrected this by getting down at eye level with the needle and using very strong magnifying lens glasses to verify if it really is going through the needle's eye. Each time, I have found that the threader hook is intact, but it swings ever so slightly to the right of the needle, missing the eye, even though it looks like it engages without the close-up, magnified view. I fix it by using a small, flat head (not a phillips) screwdriver between the hook's shaft and the metal piece that surrounds it and GENTLY pushing the hook to the left, back into position. It may take several tries to do it. You need a good strong light, a steady but gentle hand, good magnification and a good measure of patience.  THis beats taking your machine into the dealer if you can avoid it. Unfortunately, if your hook is badly bent or broken off, you would need a new part and a visit to the dealer.   Good luck if you try this!!    Kathy Strabel   Camas WA

The piece that goes through the eye has a hook on it. If it truly is going through the eye, not to either side of the needle, then the hook has likely either bent closed or broken off. This will require dealer intervention, if only because of the part involved.

Thank you Favymtz. I'll take a look tonight to see if I can get this to work for what I need.
I have to go back on my PC to access Horizon Suite since I primarily use a Mac and 
HS is not available in Mac version.

You're welcome Kathy!
Just a note about the stitch chart that I made:
These are the stitches that come with Horizon Link Suite,
the numbers do not match the stitch number on the sewing machine even though they are the same stitches
all stx files can be used in Horizon Link Editing Designs/convert stx, Stitch Composer and AcuStitch

Hi Favy,
I have been following this conversation and I want to thank you for the  pdf you attached. Your information is helping me to understand the nuances of my machine, especially .ord and .stx.

When you say you want it to start at the "center of a circle" do you mean literally in the center of the applique, not along the edge?
Quilt #25 stitch is a little star, so are you asking if you can create a stitch that's just the star without the straight stitches that connect stars together?
If so, that stitch is available as an stx file in Horizon Link Stitch Composer, and it would be fairly easy to modify.
Are you aware that Quilt #24 is also a star, without the connecting stitches like #25? 
You can stitch it as a single design by touching the lock stitch as you begin to sew, or program it with a lockstitch on screen.
You can also modify the size of it to make it smaller or larger using the width & length buttons.
So, if that's what you need you don't really need to make your own.
Re: Is it possible to save a stitch design from the 15000 and modify in Stitch Composer? How would i do that?
The answer is no. The stitches on the machine are a different format, ord+, not stx.
As I mentioned, some of the stitches are included as stx files in Stitch Composer (and if you have AcuStitch if you've purchase it).
I'm attaching a sheet that I made with all the .stx stitches that you'll have access to in Stitch Composer. These stitches can be modified, but make sure to save them with a different name.
Again, let me know if I haven't helped with the right information!

Re: Help Please

Jim Stutsman
 

This problem happens over and over because every Windows allows every program installed to set itself as the default to open for files of certain types. It's also perilously easy to do this by accident by simply checking a box when opening a file. This may help you get it fixed: https://tehnoblog.org/microsoft-windows-10-how-to-reset-file-association-with-app-program/

If that doesn't do it, and this happened after installing a program recently that works with JEF files, contact support for that program.

Hi Jim, yes I am still around ;).  Suddenly my .jef files have the E symbol (file explore) on them instead H for Hatch.  It is also on the .sew files (yes I have a few of them lurking around ;) ) but it is not on any of the other machine files.  First, is it possible to change it back and secondly would you show me how?  I have no clue as to how they got there.  
 
Hope all is well with you and Diane....Sara      Thank you, Jim

Help needed Modifying/creating a Stitch

juliadlf.ny@...
 

I am trying to modify or create a stitch for an applique project I am working on.
I've tried the Horizon Suite to create in Stitch Composer but cannot get it to stitch correctly.
The stitch I am trying to create would be similar to the Quilt #25 stitch on the Quiltmaker 15000 but
not be continuous but just a single design and would need it to start at the center of a circle (attached pdf of the circle).
I've tried YouTube and Diane's videos but none seem to be what I'm looking to do as they are more to a continuous design.
Is it possible to save a stitch design from the 15000 and modify in Stitch Composer? How would i do that?
This design would be used to applique a berry circle to the fabric and also be used to applique the center of a flower down.
Hope this makes sense what I'm trying to accomphlish. 
Thanks for any thoughts on how I can do this.
