Cynthia- et al, ----Did you mean to say that you were successful, not UN-successful??   Your post conveyed (to me at least) that you were excited about the recipe.    I have not tried this recipe for home-made temporary basting spray. What I am concerned about is I am afraid that when it is fully dry and you are putting it through the machine to do your quilting, that the food ingredient --in this case, flour--would form tiny flakes and get down into the machine workings.  Like very fine dust. I have not seen any mention of this, only have seen concerns about not allowing it to dry completely, or mold forming while it dries.  I don't know which would be worse----fine flour dust in the machine, or gummed-up needles.  I'm just sayin'......

Sorry I guess I should have said my current Janome is the HMC 15000.

Buttonhole inquiry

Kathy Strabel
 

Greetings fellow Janome Uers---I did not specify my model in the Topic Title bar because I have a suspicion that an answer might pertain to many models and I did not want to miss anyone's good input.

My problem is making buttonholes on my Skyline 7 sew-only machine. I do not really want to go to the work of doing 2 buttonholes in embroidery on my MC500 machine. Plus, I want to correct this problem on my S7.

Here is what happens:  Machine is threaded top and bottom with size 50 regular sewing thread. Buttonhole  foot  R correctly in place, bobbin thread pulled up above needle plate, needle thread passed under the foot and drawn backwards a little bit. BH lever pulled down, a button is mounted on the foot to determine size of buttonhole I want.  Ready to go.

I start stitching, and the stitches are formed, at first sewing away from me, then it reverses and stitches the actual satin stitches to form  the left column of the buttonhole, then it makes the bartack at the bottom, closest to me.  At that point, it is supposed to again stitch away from me, then come back down the right column to form the right side of the buttonhole. But the needle thread somehow "jumps" out of the eye, and no actual stitches form, but the needle goes up and down as if it is stitching. Which, of course, it is not. The thread does not break, it just does not stitch and forms a few loops on the underside. This process has happened 6 times in a row, with different styles of buttonholes. Never had this problem before. The needle has only a few "miles" on it, I have loosened the needle tension 2 clicks, which is normal for ALL sewing on this machine.  No matter what I sew, I always loosen it 2 clicks. Including the garment I am wanting to put these 2 buttonholes in.  BTW, I am using the exact same thread I used to sew the garment .    Any input appreciated.

Hello,
I recently updated two PCs my desktop and laptop from Windows 10 to Windows 11. Both are running Horizon Link Suite (the latest version) and everything is working well; in fact neither computer had any issues at all which is AMAZING in my prior experience ha-ha.

Re: Janome 15,000 vs M7

The 2 machines are very different. I like them both, but for a sewing machine the M7 is the best and I mean the best of any Janome machine I have ever owned in the 35 years I’ve used a Janome machine. The M7 is definitely a stronger sewing machine as it has a stronger motor and the acufeed system has been stepped up. I don’t understand the mechanics, so I just have to believe what I’m told. I haven’t sewn anything different on any of my machines and they’ve all handled what I’ve sew up to this time

As for discontinuation: it might just be that the UK has decided not to bring any 15000’s in because there is suppose to be a new machine coming next spring at Janome Institute. Also, IF this is the case Janome may not be manufacturing that machine anymore as the resources could be going to the production of that new machine. As it is Janome’s 100th anniversary, there will definitely be something new, but who really knows “what” that might be. There has always been secrecy over the new products and SO very much speculation on the part of consumers. I do know that there is at least one floor model of the 15000 Quiltmaker at the dealer at Haus of Stitches in Humboldt, SK as I saw it this morning.

We have to be kind to our dealers as COVID has given them as much grief as it did to us. They also have had machines pulled out of closets to be serviced because with people at home they are now having time to sew or do other skills that were put on hold because they were to busy, working or going here and there, when now they cannot. These times are difficult on us all, so we need to smile more and think very positively and share the Janome Love.

Re: Windows 11

Trust me.  Windows 11 if you do not just upgrade from windows 10 and purchase a new computer with Windows 11.  It is awesome.  I upgraded on my Windows 7 to the Windows 10 years ago when they offered the free upgrade and it never worked correctly until I just purchased an inexpensive computer with Windows 10 and it was fine, It never was as fast as my new Windows 11,  but I had it 4 years and it is still running. 

I transferred everything from my Widows 10 to my Windows 11 and it only took minutes with PC mover.  All my software is up and running with no issues except my Janome V.5 will not transfer the components to run.  I went on the global website did what they said but it did not work, other than that all my other software transferred with a breeze and are running better than ever. I have an email into Janome tech      and am hoping they can help.

I upgraded to 11 when I wasn't feeling well and thought I was only doing an update.  I did not like it at all especially as you didn't have the same menu when you right click on an item unless you select another thing and then click again.  Annoying.  There were other things I didn't like as well so I reverted back to 10 and will wait until they fix some things that many will find annoying before upgrading.  Oh, and I couldn't move the menu bar from the bottom to the sides or top which is something I often need to do.  I think they'll have to fix that.

I would hold off for a while. As everyone knows, I don't do Windows, but I have a son who needs to for work. He was down for half a day because one of his work apps that has worked through Windows 10, does not work correctly on Windows 11. This, even after he went through all the gyrations with compatibility mode. Keep any eye on the Janome Software page for updates relating to Windows 11. If anyone has already gone to Windows 11 and had no problems with Janome software, please post what software you are using and any problems related to Windows 11.

My computer has advised me that I can upgrade to Windows 11. I checked with a daughter who works in IT and she told me to check on any non Windows programmes that I have to make sure they are compatible with Windows 11 before I upgraded.

I have checked that Embird is compatible and it is but I cannot find anything about compatibility for Horizon link. Jim can you throw any light on this please.


Re: Janome 15,000 vs M7

I’ve been told by Janome UK that the 15000 is discontinued, they only now show the 550e and the DS9 for sale.    There’s no news from them as to what is to replace it.  There’s speculation from some that it will be a combi of the M7 and 550e but that to me is the 15000 with a bit extra.  It will need to be more than that though to compete with the Brother Luminaire with its digitising capability etc.

I'm assuming that by "thumbprints" you mean having design files show the design in the icon. This is one of the biggest mistakes made in the design of Windows, as it assumes there is one, and only one, program to open a file of a given type. Consequently the link of icon to file type is constantly at risk of being changed if another program that uses those files is installed. This page does a decent job of explaining how to fix it. Note that you may have to do this multiple times for JEFJPXEMB, and other file types used by Digitizer.

I have just been told the 15000 is now discontinued.  It is no longer on the UK website.  I’m gutted, thought it was going to be updated to any new machine, but it won’t be, we’ve had one upgrade.  

A friend has the M7, it is similar, to the sewing side of the 15, but I can’t say for certain.

I have been looking everywhere for a customer service person to answer this question.  I have the Janome 15,000.  What I want to know is the 15,000 sewing machine equivalent to the M7 sewing machine with the addition of embroidery.  Are they the same sewing machine.  Would it benefit me to purchase a M7 also or do I actually have one already with the 15,000.  I have written to several Janome reps and have not received any replys.  I guess this is an unknown question. Does any one have a customer service email address or an answer for me?  I want to know if the M7 is heavier built or more power or just the same sewing capability.
