Ok thank you Jim.  I think my machine just doesn't like the thread I purchased.  


Re: Windows 11

I’ve found windows 10 ok with my Janome software, I have V5.5, although I think there was an issue with it after I upgraded from V5.  I had to have a one time only download from Wilcom, whether that was a windows 10 update or a corrupted USB I don’t know.  As far as windows 11 is concerned, Janome told me it should work ok with 5.5 don’t know about any earlier versions.  My PC is ok to download 11 but I’m not sure what will happen if there is a problem as the contract with Wilcom has ended, not sure if they will help if there’s a problem.  Janome now want us to buy the Artistic Digitizer which I will not do under any circumstances, I’ll go for Hatch 2.

Re: Janome 15,000 Quilt Maker Tension Cover

Jim Stutsman
 

In the 15000 that was manufactured as Quilt Maker there is no removable cover over the top thread guide. Removing it requires removing the top cover and removing the screw underneath. As long as you only pull thread through that area going forward, as in threading, you should be fine. It's when the thread gets pulled backward after cutting that it tends to shave off debris.


Janome 15,000 Quilt Maker Tension Cover

Does anyone know how to remove the tension cover for the Janome 15,000 Quilt Maker.  I have the repair manual but it just shows how to remove the older version.  Something is catching my thread in there and I would like to take a look at what is going on but I don't want to break the cover because I don't see how to remove it.  Has anyone taken the newer cover off?  Thanks for any help.  Cindy

Re: 350E price

Padden, Jennifer R
 

I purchased my 350e at the Houston quilt show in 2006.  It has been a workhorse for me and I do not have any complaints about it at all.  I cannot upgrade due to budget but I really like my 350e. It has worked perfectly with my Embrilliance editing modules.  I paid over $1000 for mine back then.  Be sure you use good bobbins cause if you use generic ones, they rattle in the bobbin case during the stitch out.

As for USBs, I’ve used USB drives with a considerable amount of storage with no issues on both the 350e and the 15000 and have had no issue with storing or retrieving files.

The 350e is a really nice little machine and at times I do miss mine for it’s compact size.  I replaced mine with a 500e about a year after they came out and sold mine locally for $800. Even though the screen feels small by today’s standards and it is grayscale rather than color, the machine has the full suite of editing features (combining designs, resizing, moving the design in the stitch field, etc.) and takes designs on a USB.  

 

One thing to be aware of…

The USB file structure for designs is different from what Janome uses in the newer machines and doesn’t allow sub folders.  You need to use small USB’s, preferably 1Gb or less and designs have to go into the EmbF5>MyDesign folder set up when you format the USB in the machine.

 

Given the current machine shortage, I would say that it is a pretty good price.  Even if you feel it ought to be serviced.

I looked at the 500E a few months ago and was impressed with the stitch quality and on boarding editing functions.  I might get her to come down a little on the price.

I can’t help with what the machine should sell for or be worth at its current age, but I can tell you I have a Kenmore computerized sewing machine made by Janome that I bought new at Sears in January 1994 that still works perfectly…it’s warranty only expired a few years ago and it’s only been serviced a few times since it was purchased new and rarely used until about 2012. 

So, I had no concerns in early 2015 about acquiring a Janome 11000 manufactured in 2005, especially having seen and wanted one when they first came out, and it also still works perfectly.  (Only issues I had with it were a slightly damaged…burred…plastic embroidery foot, easily resolved with a new foot, and a bit of thread ‘kinking’ on the top end of the thread path, easily resolved by using a thread stand, and a slight adjustment of the bobbin case ‘stop’ which Jim said was an issue when the 11000’s were first made that he figured out for his customers having the issue.) 

I bought a 15000 in 2016 but kept the 11000. By the time I got the 11000, it had been ‘replaced in manufacturing’ by the 12000 and the 15000.

If you are reasonably confident the machine has had proper care and/or storage by its current owner, the Janome machines are quality machines in my experience and, in your position, I might definitely be inclined to give the decision very careful consideration. If your budget permits at a later date, you can still have a ‘fall back’ machine if you decide to invest in the 350e now and upgrade later. 

Looking forward to hearing your decision.

Re: 350E price

I have the 500e that I purchased about a year ago, after 2 failed attempts at buying used machines, they were both sewing and embroidery, Huqusvana, and a Brother, not sure if it was the  part that they were shipped to me, but I did not want  to have to pay for them to be serviced as soon as I got them, so I returned them.

If the machine does not have to be shipped, and you can go have the seller demonstrate it for you, then I would grab it, maybe try knocking off $50, but if she is giving you all kinds of thread and such, I would pay the full amount. The embroidery machines are just going up in price. So if this is a good working machine, take it, you can always upgrade in time.

Lorrie--I don't know if you will find this helpful, but I purchased the model 500e embroidery-only, about 3 years ago. Brand new, in box from a well-known local dealer. The price was $1699 and included 4 hoops. The stitch quality is very nice and I am glad to have a separate machine so I can do regular sewing while embroidering at the same time. 
 My 500e does not have a way to check how much "mileage" it has on it, so I assume the 350e also would not have this feature.  If the seller is local to you, ask if you can do a test ---and bring the fabrics, stabilizer, and thread that you would normally use. Sew out a couple of samples and keep your ears open for any sounds that might indicate trouble. I believe there would be some built-in designs, but if you have a fairly simple JEF format design on a thumb drive, the seller should allow you to test that, too. 
Good luck

After buying external cd drive I did not have a problem installing horizon link.  However, I did have problem installing monogram wizard from cd. I went to this site http://needleheads.com/index.php 
the people who made it originally and was able to use my original serial number to get link to new one that let me download it from internet.  After asking and searching the only alternative to not having cd rom drive was to buy one which on Amazon was around 22$ US.
