Re: Horizontal spool holder for M17

Pixey
 

Hi Carolyn,
Whether the spool is horizontal or vertical is less of an issue than whether the thread is unwinding off the end of the spool or straight off sideways.  And in fact, which way it was wound on the spool in the first place.  I and a lot of others use separate vertical thread stands to give the thread a chance to relax the twist.  

I have been looking at the M17 manual and by using the spool pins and the thread guide bar, you are unwinding the thread in the same way as a horizontal thread holder.  I like this new configuration because it is compatible with straight wound thread, without having to use an adapter.

Here is a link from Superior Threads Education area that talks about feeding thread off of spools.

Re: Cover for the 15000

Pixey
 

Hi Elizabeth Ann,

I am wondering whether your specific dealer might have included a universal hard sided cover as an extra accessory because the black cover was  confusing for a lot of early adopters. Is the hard sided 15000 cover, actually branded Janome?  I recall my MC3000 hard sided cover had a little decal with the machine name and number on it on the front center. Also was it actually packed in the box with the machine? 

If it was branded with Janome or 15000, you have a unique ‘prototype’ that did not come in most machines.

Out of additional curiosity which machine configuration does it fit over? Basic machine without the extension table or with the embroidery unit attached?

Cheryl, I'm with you about the hard cover for the 15000! (and 12000!) (and other recent machines)

People were actually 'arguing' with the gal on Facebook about it, but she's insisting that she had one...

But how a person could have accidentally thrown it away I'll never know...

Hi,

I've been reading through the Forum replies each day and the 15000 Cover has come up.  At about the era of the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 12000 the hard case seems to have disappeared and a soft black cover with pockets has replaced that plastic white cover that is with many of the smaller machines and was with the MC11000, MC10000 and my 38 year old MC6000.  Those covers were nice and seemed sturdy enough, but they were bulky to store and if you turned them upside down and filled them with stuff from the sewing room, they needed to be emptied to use.

So I just saying that I NEVER, EVER saw a hard cover for the 12000, or 15000, and I know a lot of people that owns one or more of these machines.  Don't worry because you didn't throw anything away.  Just look for a plastic bag with a very flat black piece of fabric with pockets and a flap over the cover - all one piece in your sewing box or where you might have hidden it in your sewing room.  Again it's Black with JANOME written on it in RED somewhere on the front of the flap.

Re: Info on the M17

Cat - N
 

I was curious what was included in the demo but, although the conversation between them was delightful, to be honest, it seemed like a kinda brief-ish mention of certain features…not an in depth demonstration of the machine…likely due to them just starting to evaluate the machine, too.  I’m there are other videos being made…probably everywhere as the machines become available. The dealer nearest me doesn’t know when an M17 with be in their shop, or didn’t when I was there. I did find it interesting that he said the M17 recognized the hoop he attached to the embroidery unit as “the wrong one”, and the ‘micro embroidery’ aspect being described as ‘like the MB4’ has, and the stitch regulator technology…and a few other things.   The thing that bothers me most (so far?) is the lack of a free arm.  Without a free arm, it cannot be an ‘only’ machine for my purposes. So, I will be taking my time evaluating it. I have a wonderful 15000, a wonderful 11000, and a wonderful sewing only machine so I’m not the least bit in any hurry at the moment.  The machine wasn’t available at the Daytona quilt show, but Jacksonville Quiltfest in September will likely have the M17 in person, and a Janome rep on-site. I’ve got plenty to do until then anyway. Lol

That’s super you can just slide it across…no lifting. You definitely couldn’t do that with Tutto.

For those of you who would enjoy seeing the features of the new machine, Janome Canada is having a facebook live  to demonstrate it at 3:00ET today. 
I just got the notice and I am putting the lint to the information--if it is not allowed, I would assume that you could go to facebook and look for Janome Canada and find it.


Happy viewing!

Super!

I looked at getting the overlocker Tutto, but I have never taken my Pfaff coverlocker anywhere, so don't think I need anything special for it yet.  It's weighty, but not as heavy as the 15000, and I think it will fit in the Tutto I got for it, so likely don't need anything else anyway.  The 'Tutto' purple color is very pretty, as are all their colors that I've seen, but I only have so much room to store stuff, even if it does fold up smaller.

Lol, Ceil. It had to happen that I’m not the only one with a purple Tutto. I’d have chosen either aqua or purple anyway but was okay with any color and was surprised purple was the cheap color. I gif mine on Amazon…I forget which retailer was selling them via Amazon but it was a ‘quilt’ type company and a well known name at that. I no sooner bought it online and the price was reduced so I inquired what that was so, and they reduced my cost to match their sale price. So win-win, I guess, but the case worked well for me when I most needed it and I am grateful to have found such a deal, having so much medical to pay, too.  Sounds like your Tutto was a godsend for you as well.
