Gail, you should have an icon on your computer, click on that and it will show the parts of Horizon Link.�� When you open each part in the upper right hand corner is a tiny questions mark (?), open that and help is there.�� Lots to see, Claire S.

Re: oesd designs

Barbara,

If you purchased the designs as downloads, did you choose JEF file format? Can you open either of the designs, or is it that you can't get them to save to your computer when you try to download? As Jim said, you have to download through a web browser like Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer and save to a folder on your computer. If you haven't read through it, OESD website has a Frequently Asked Questions page under their Help section. It has screenshots that may help. As Jim said, more specific info is needed if this doesn't help.

Can anyone help please, I recently bought 2 designs from OESD not realising the format was 32 bit and I have windows 7  x86 64 bit . I have tried downloading with my digitizer to no avail , used artsizer but can not get the files to go anywhere to a folder or usb.  Am I not doing something or has this been a complete waste of money  The designs are the crane and koi collections . Any solutions greatly appreciated . If there is a solution do I need to download the horizonlink as well as the jef files ?

Thankyou Barbara 

With a confused look, Jim replies:
Designs don't come in 32-bit or 64-bit. They are just data files, so the version of Windows does not matter. When you say you "have tried downloading with my digitizer" are you trying to use Digitizer to download designs from the OESD website? It can't do that. You need to use a web browser to download files. If you are saying you are trying to send the designs to a USB drive or the machine, yes, Digitizer can do that, but we're going to need more details to understand why it's not working for you. HorizonLink is not available as a download, so if you want to use it you would need to install it from the CD included with your machine. It also can send designs to USB.

My best guess at your problem is that you have purchased designs from OESD in a format other than JEF. You should be able to open them in Digitizer and then send them to a USB drive or save them to a folder. You may need some instruction on how to use Digitizer to do this. It's a very powerful program, but there is some learning required. At the most basic level you should be able to use "File -> Open" from the menu to open a design and "File -> Save As" to save it as JEF. If I've guessed wrong, please re-post your problem with specific details.


Re: circular sewing attachment - question for Jim

Nicole Schmidt-Nutt
 

I may be interested in the circular attachment.  I went on the Janome website for the 12000 and it shows a circular attachment but different numbers.

That part fits the 8200, 8900 and 12000. For the 15000 you will want part #202135007.

Re: Acufil question-editing the stipple pattern

Virginia
 

I think if you read the tutorial again it says you can enlarge the stitches in MBX and then save them as a JPX.  that means you have you to have the MBX software program to do that .

Re: Acufil

dxcourt@...
 

I recently purchased the 12000 because of the Acufil option. I'm disappointed that the supplied quilting designs and stippling are so limited. I don't have the MBX software and don't have any plans to purchase. Do you have any quilting designs for Acufil that you'd be willing to share or sell for a nominal fee?

Re: Stippling Using Acufil hoop

With the MBX software you can adjust the size of your stippling.  It is called Loop spacing(sizing).

I haven't used the Acufil hoop much for 2 reasons.  

It takes a long time to hoop and rehoop the fabric.  I can free motion stipple faster (but the problem with that is that I don't free motion stipple very well and I don't seem to be getting any better although I've done it a lot.)

The stipples provided with the Acufil are too dense for what I like.  Has anyone made the stippling less dense and then quilted an entire quilt that way?  If so did you use a software program to do that or bought an embroidery design?

I don't have MBX but am interested that you said the in MBX that you can add stippling around a design.


I like to do applique blocks using embroidery mode and use them as blocks in quilts.  If I had MBX could I add stippling around whatever applique I have used in a block when I go to actually quilt my quilt?  I'm assuming I would have to open the applique design in MBX and it would allow me to add stippling around it?

The reason I don't have MBX is because of how expensive it is.  Does anyone know if there are less expensive programs that would do the same thing?

I just searched and found this sight. I have not watched the videos yet but it might be what some of you are looking for.  It's for the 12000 but I don't think there would be much difference. Hope these help us all.

Re: Acufil question-editing the stipple pattern

It probably would be impossible to do without a software program like MBX.  Where you are using the stipple that comes with the program it is pretty much what it is.  MBX (Janome software) will allow you to add stipple around an embroidery design very easily but with the Acufil it is almost impossible to do with keeping the integrity of your design.  The stipple is grouped to use as is.  I believe there is a corner design perhaps you could work with that and make your embroidery a little smaller.

Dear group,
I am trying to do a Acufil stipple design (the default one), but I need to modify 3 of the grids because there is a design in the middle and I don’t want any stitches on the geisha’s face and hands.  I can’t delete just part of the grid (. Eg. The upper right quadrant) because it is  all one design. There is no stippling part that resembles the design of the stipple pieces. Any ideas of what I can do?
There are only 3 of the 15 grids that need modification.
Thanks in Advance
