Hi Linda,

I have just had a conversation with Janome about my Horizon link disc (I did eventually find it!) but they gave me a phone number for their Spares department
0161 666 6001 to phone to ask if they could help. Give it a try, Janome seem really helpful whenever I have had a problem.

I recently purchased a previously-owned 12000 and am wondering if the app videos for it are available to be purchased on a cd.

Good Morning Shirley,

I have a 15000 and love it. I purchased the My15000 App as soon as Jim and Diane released it and have found it to be the most useful of ALL my Apps. Diane is a wonderful presenter and has such a nice way to demonstrate all the features of the 15000. I have watched each and every video more than once and those that I really like, but don’t use often, I watch over and over; ie: the binding attachment, the rolled hem foot, etc. Her explanations are so good and I can get things to work, where as I really struggled previously. My last 10-15 years of well over 50 years of sewing have been made so much easier. THANKS DIANE!

The Footbook App is also very good, but if it isn’t available anymore, get the My 15000 App as all the feet, those included in the box and all the optional ones, are explained there along with other useful tips and tricks for sewing and quilting methods. All of Jim’s App’s are worth their weight in gold.

Re: Foot Book App and Quilt in the Hoop App

Jim Stutsman
 

Welcome to the group Shirley, we're glad to have you. As the author of the apps in your question, I am equipped to explain. But I must warn you it will be long!

1. The copyright on FootBook hasn't actually ended, it's just a few years old. It only applies to the app itself, not the content, and under copyright law extends to my life and some number of years. It's also kind of meaningless. At the moment there are two different companies producing apps for Janome machines: Janome, and myself. FootBook, which will turn 11 in August, was designed so the data could be updated without the need for a new app. We've added several feet and accessories as Janome releases them. Unfortunately this takes some time, because we need to first get the new foot, make photos, and in most cases video. As two retired people, we produce these things as quickly as we can, but that's rarely as quickly as people would like.

2. Quilt in the Hoop was an app with limited appeal, and peaked fairly quickly. Although the App Store has unlimited shelf space, in theory, Apple purges it from time to time. In one of those purges we were told that we must update the app, or it would be removed from the store due to lack of sales. At the time I was heavy into the development of ThreadBook, which took the best part of a year to create. I didn't see anything I could add, so I continued with ThreadBook and let Apple remove it. Existing users can continue to use it, even though it's not in the store.

The app the might do you the most good would probably be My 15000. It's a collection of videos made on a 15000, and is quite detailed in covering the features of the machine. You can see a 30 second video on it here.

The aforementioned ThreadBook app is currently being rewritten from the ground up. Every few years Apple comes up with a revolutionary new method for creating apps. I started in 2011, and spent a few years becoming proficient in their development tools for iOS. Several years later they released a completely new language tool. Again it took a few years to master it, and I used it in the initial development of ThreadBook. And once again they came out with a new tool to build on that, again with a big learning curve. I'm using that tool to create ThreadBook 2. It allows apps to be created faster, but the learning curve has cancelled that advantage, so it's still been slow going. Because it is new, it's still a bit rough, and a lot of things that should work, just don't. This has put me a couple of months behind, but I'm nearing the end and will be requesting beta testers soon. Existing ThreadBook users will get version 2 as a free upgrade.

There are a lot of 15000 owners here, and you'll find plenty of help on just about any subject related to that machine. Once again welcome, and please let us know if you need any help.


Foot Book App and Quilt in the Hoop App

Shirley F
 

I am relatively new to this group and have appreciated the wisdom of the members.  I have a new to me MC15000, am creating a stitch book and trying to learn all that my machine can do.  I have searched on this site to see if this has been covered already but couldn’t find what I was looking for.

1.). I just discovered the Foot Book app but noticed the copyright has ended and am wondering before I purchase it, has it been updated to include recent feet like the newest ruler foot?  How often do updates happen.

2.) I came across a short video that suggested that there was a Quilt in the Hoop app.  When I looked in the App Store it said it was not available in my country (I’m in Canada).  What countries is it available in and is it useful?

 Thank you.

Shirley

You can, but you must first enter it into the It's For Sale database. Any message posted here will obfuscate your email address, so no one can ask you about it. The database allows you to enter an email that people can use to contact you. After entering your machine, you can post it here (Once please!) with a link to the database. Thanks for asking!

can I offer my 11000 for sale here? recently moved and i need to sell machines, there is no space.  I have decided on parting with at least 3, from there i will see.... I will be sad to see them go, but as long as I have too many I cannot use any of them, sew it will be for the best.

S9 for sale in Groups.io database

Pixey
 

After giving it some thought, I have decided to sell my Janome S9 as I am just not using it very often in the way I had thought I would and have other machines that I seem to gravitate to more. I have put it as entry 26 in the groups.io database (which will display my email address for contacting me directly).

I would rather not deal with trying to ship it (though I do have the original box) but could help with delivery (3-4 hours driving distance in any direction from central Texas).

Re: Warning on Janome Horizon 15000

well, duh; of course it's the foot control. Thanks for the reply on both of these items.

Re: Warning on Janome Horizon 15000

Jim Stutsman
 

Just to clarify, to me "presser foot" is the part that holds the fabric down while you sew. The foot control is the part you push with your foot to make it sew. So if the warning has the presser foot, i.e. not the foot control, then it might mean a sensor issue. On the 15000 this could be the needle plate sensor that checks to see if you have the right plate installed for what you are trying to do. On the bottom of each 15000 plate there is a metal piece that fits into a pocket near the back right corner. There are switches in there to detect the plate status. A lint buildup in that area could cause bogus warnings. However - if this is the problem, unplugging/replugging the foot control would have no effect.

If the warning is a picture of the foot control, that's a different problem related to the foot control itself. Diane has had to replace the foot control on her machine for this problem, and many others have as well.

A two-year gap in service is not the end of the world. Remove needle plate, presser foot, and bobbin case and use the smallest vacuum attachment you have to pull out the accumulated crud. That could also help if it's the first problem.

Your foot is going out.  You will need to replace it.  You can find a regular foot on Amazon or get the double one from your dealer.

My machine has recently been giving me a warning with the presser foot showing on the screen. All sewing is locked, but if I unplug the foot control from the machine and plug it back in, it works fine again...for a while. I'm wondering if this is a problem with the presser foot or is it with the machine itself? True confession, I have not had the machine serviced in about 2 years. Your advice, please.

Thank you so much for the photos it looks like even with out the inside padding the hard shell does give an added protection. 
If a person has a place to store it why not have it!🤗

Sorry for the late post of pics. Here is my Janome hardsided case. It is not thickly padded inside. Some areas are slightly padded. It has two side handles plus a top
handle. You can unzip on either side. Two of the four wheels lock (yellow tabs on wheels). There are straps inside to secure the machine.
It has two bags that come with it. The handle is telescoping like your typical luggage
case. It does take myself and my husband (or whoever is available to help) lift the case with the machine inside into the cargo area of my car. I store mine in our basement.
I've only taken my 15000 once to the dealer for the needle threader and last year packed it in the case for our move to West Virginia from NYState. It is a keeper for me but I think
whatever you prefer to go with it.

Lol. Love the ‘red neck case’ you invented…it fits and no carrying necessary. 

I contemplated both cases myself (because my hubby who usually carries my 15000, was still in a wheelchair as a recent amputee at that time) and decided on the big Tutto case in part because it folds down somewhat and I didn’t have room to store the hard case. This is the first I’ve heard of actual hard case experience so I am continuing to be happy with my decision.  If you decide on the Tutto, shop for price. I got a substantial savings because I was ‘willing to accept’ the ‘cheapest’ color at the time…a gorgeous purple that just makes my heart sing. lol

Thanks so much for your input as I still consider the best choice but still within a price range I’m willing to spend! I kept thinking the hard case would protect it even though it’s not foam on the inside but it is a large bulky item to store when not using. I had no idea about the Tutto brand being something that would store easily when not in use. Until I can make my mind up and I sure appreciate all of y’all‘s input I will be continuing using my “redneck sewing machine case” a.k.a. a large enough suitcase, dog bed for padding, extra blanket, bungee cord to hold it on my folding hand-truck😂🤣 Photo for proof and the”Big Girl” 15000 Janome does fit😊

Hi, I had the hard case and I agree! It is awful! I had the Tutto case and it protects it just fine. Worth every cent! It does not move around in it at all and you can put a lot of things in it as well! Your hoops fit in very well.
I had my son bring it up to the lake in his truck, a 3 1/2 hour drive. It worked perfectly!
I brought it home, worked perfectly. Those Tutto bags are worth their weight in gold!
By the way Johnson’s sewing centre in Alberta sells machines, bags, etc cheaper than anywhere else!
They are wonderful people!
I purchased the continental m5 from them, paid $4999CAD when everyone one else in Canada wanted $6299! Had it shipped from Alberta to Ontario and saved well over $1000 including shipping!
