I love it better now that I have discovered the little 3 inch high tubes. No more waste from it getting hard.

I have a Janome 15,000 and it has the levels on it.  Not sure about the other embroidery machines.  I also started having trouble embroidering again even after I thought I had it fixed.  Now it is really fixed.  You know what it was?  It was the actual bobbin.  After looking at my bobbin, I don't think it is an original bobbin from Janome.  I changed to a bobbin I am sure is Janome's and it is sewing beautifully.  I am making the same design again today that I sewed out yesterday and the thread that would not work took me about 3 hours to get past that thread yesterday.  Today I had to use it again and it took 20 minutes to sew that part.  I just ordered more original bobbins and I am going to throw all the ones that were suppose to be original Janome bobbins when I ordered them away!  They came with 10 bobbin in a clear plastic bag.  I wondered then if they really were original, I guess they were not.

Now I need some more help.  This design I am sewing is going to be an applique for my new faux leather rocking chairs in our rv.  We went out West for three weeks and those mountains really threw things around.  The valance over the window fell down and put a tear in one of my chairs.  I could of cried but I am making a design to put over the tear on each chair.  It is faux leather and I don't know exactly how to attach it.  I could try and sew it on by hand but I am afraid to poke more holes in it and I could glue it but not sure what glue would be the best.  Does anyone have any ideas??  Thanks for any help!


Re: Issue after 15000 Upgrade

Strangely enough this may be a code, and not an instruction to. That phrase used to pop up on 12000. Following the instructions did nothing. My service person shared it was a code. Google it.

Since you said you "had it upgraded" I'm assuming you are in the US and the upgrade was done by a dealer. The message may or may not be related. Essentially it means "When you turned on the machine we did a self-test and it did not pass. We're not going to tell you why." Unfortunately this will involve dealer intervention to correct, as it nearly always is due to one of many sensors being slightly out of adjustment.

Re: Question re: built-in designs on MC500e

Cheryl Paul
 

Kathy, Can you move them if you select them one by one? That would require you to enter them individually so they don’t become “one” design but many designs. Once you save it, I think they group and become one, so this needs to be done initially when you are working with the design. You know that you an do almost anything and everything with software, such as Digitizer MBX & V5.5 and Artistic Digitizer or other brands, because you have the capability to “ungroup” or “break apart” the design and then work with the elements.

I don’t have a 500E or 550E machine, so I’m really guessing here, but the embroidery is much the same in all Janome machines, as you know I’ve had quite a few but they all were combined embroidery and sewing.

Kathy, of course you can move them within the hoop!
Start by opening the Edit screen in the machine (or in your Embroidery Editor program)
Then open your design and move it as you want to within the chosen hoop.
This is called making a layout in a hoop, and it will save as a Jef+ design if you save it either into the machine memory or onto a usb.

Kathy,
You can use the regular edit functions on the built in designs.  After selecting the design into the embroidery field, touch the home button and then touch the edit screen (crosshatched square).  This should put the machine into edit mode with the design.

Good morning Janome Homies----I know that the e500 and e550 have a moderate number of built-in stitches. I have used a few of them, but the variety is not that great and I always can find something at an online provider. But some of the built-ins do work for me. My question is: Can these built-in designs be edited at all, or even just moved within the sewing field? Seems they just are plopped in the center of the hoop and you can't do anything with them. Sometimes I would like to maybe duplicate and/or move the designs within the hoop.   Just curious.

Thanks for the info.  I will discuss it with the technician when my machine is next in for service.  Meanwhile I will use the embroidery machine for buttonholes.

There's; there's a "hall effect sensor" inside the machine that is in that same area where the pull down lever is.
(I suppose the two of them work together to help measure out the buttonhole.) 
The reason that I ask if you had tried any of the other styles of buttonholes is that none of the buttonholes will stitch properly if that internal sensor isn't set right.

I had successfully made buttonholes previously and one day was making samples of all of the buttonholes in the 15000 when I discovered they weren't stitching right, similar to what was happening with your machine, Mary.
The service tech explained it all to my husband, who told me the sensor is the type of sensor that's called "Hall Effect Sensor"!!!

Re: Buttonholes on a Janome 8900

Hi
Thanks for the suggestion.  When you mention ‘sensor’ do you mean the pull down leaver?  If so I don’t use the leaver when using F foot as it isn’t needed.  I can’t try any of the other buttonhole stitches as I am not using the auto buttonhole foot.  My buttons are too big.  

I will however be trying the embroidery buttonholes as this seems a good option. 

Regards

Mary, I've waited to see if anyone would jump in and make this one suggestion, and since no one has yet, here's my input.
If you're doing everything correctly that you can and still getting a staggered buttonhole repeatedly, it's most likely the sensor within the machine that needs to be adjusted.
Have you tried making any of the other buttonholes? If they are also staggered, or will not completely sew then it is the sensor and you'll need to take the machine to get it adjusted.
This happened on one of my machines and it came out of the blue.
Re embroidered buttonholes, I also do them on every garment where I have to make certain that all my buttonholes will be perfect! They're pretty much foolproof but the hooping of the garment can be tedious.

Re: Buttonholes on a Janome 8900

Buttonholes are scary because they're the last step and if you have a problem, you can destroy your project. I had a Kenmore (made by Janome) that I bought in 1989 that used cams for the buttonholes. It made the most wonderful buttonholes with no problems at all. I was so easy to do. I haven't had a machine that created them as easily  or perfectly lined up since then.

Lol. I thought of it but you said you were having issues making oversized "Buttonholes on a Janome 8900" so I didn’t suggest it because the 8900 isn't an embroidery machine. Glad you have a way to do it that is automated...and an embroidery machine and goodies that can create what you want. There are manual ways to do oversize buttonholes that are a bit tedious but not as 'bad' as how we had to do them as kids using a straight stitch only treadle machine then hand sewing...but isn’t this kinda why we get such nice machines…for all the wonderful features?  Maybe that's my excuse...

Hi Cheryl

Unfortunately I am still struggling. 
I tried using the long auto buttonhole foot but not pulling down the lever but the results were still  the same. 
I tried with the F foot and using thinner fabric but still using an interface, no difference. 
I tried doing it really slowly and being careful not to push/ pull the fabric and whilst this helped a little it still gave me a staggered buttonhole. 

I think it would be helpful to be able to see the sequence and number of the stitches on buttonhole memory 24 that I have set up.  So is there’s way to see this info on the screen?  You can see the stitch sequence on other stitch sequences you have personally put into memory.  I have a Janome 8900 and I don’t know how to see the stitch layout and count of preprogrammed stitches or even if it is possible.

Re: Buttonholes on a Janome 8900

Lol! Glad to be of some help to you. But, honestly, even though I have been following your posts because I have trouble lining up button holes with the  button hole foot. (It is so hard to see the marks I put on my fabric due to the foot.) And with all that--I didn't think of embroidered button holes myself until today. I guess that's why we need groups to help each other. What one doesn't think of, hopefully another will.
I'd love to hear how you do with the embroidered buttonholes. It's something I would like to try someday.

Re: Bobbin Case Jumping

Melanie Dumas
 

I was referring to repairs to your chair with the appliqué. 
Maybe you could use a small tipped hand-held iron and double sided stay tape on the appliqué along with the proper interfacing.
Take a larger piece of appropriate interfacing and hash tag it with the double sided stay tape to make the pieces stay together better before you press the appliqué on its final area. Also you could sew the tape to a smaller piece of the interfacing until you have a piece that would be size appropriate. You could possibly use clear thread and attach or tack the interfaced piece to your appliqué and then use the iron”s tip to attach everything. I believe it would depend on how much sitting would be done on the “repaired” spot.
You will need to be very careful with your iron!!!
