Re: Janome card?

Dottie
 

Fairly certain the scan and sew is OLD technology - used with the 8000, 9000.  A long time ago, we had to purchase specific cards from our Janome dealers for our machines.  With the new technology we were able to use flash cards and/or USB sticks, etc.  Anyway, 99% sure the scan and sew is only for the OLDER machines.  Dottie in WV

In reading about the Acufil they suggest staring in the middle and working your way to the outside.  At least that's what I've seen.

Has anyone else have any comments?

Re: Binder Attachment

Do you sew the binding on the back by hand?  Or do you machine stitch the binding to the back and then pull it to the front and machine stitch it on?  Just curious, because the hand stitching is what I'm trying to avoid.

Just my thoughts on toilet paper embroidery!  I love giving as a gag gift.  It always creates quite as laugh and a great conversation piece.  I've never had anyone complain, and it is always displayed in the washroom.  Besides it's fun!

Re: Acufil webinar

The directions in the 15000 manual do say to mark all vertical and horizontal center points for each hooping on the entire quilt and I think it says to start in the center of the quilt and work out.  You may also want to baste the quilt with spray or thread.  There is a thread basting option for just this purpose.

Redwork on MC 12000 with Cotona

blue_lak <no_reply@...>
 

I'm having difficulty getting a completely smooth stitch-out of the built-in redwork designs. The fabric is all cotton, coarse linen-like weave. The thread is Madeira Cotona in both top and bobbin. The bobbin holder is the regular, not yellow dot. Needle is topstitch 12, but I've also tried 11. Stabilizer is Ultra Solvy on bottom, with regular Solvy on top. I've tried all 3 sizes of designs and still have top thread looping on the underside in the design areas that have triple stitches when running vertically. The rest of the design seems to stitch out fine. And yes, I do use the lockout key when threading and loading the bobbin. Any suggestions on diagnosis, or adjustments?

Here is a youtube video on how to use the binder foot.
(the second one shows you how to miter the corners.)
 
It helped me when I was first using the binder foot.
 
Hope this helps,

Hi Nicole,

I am getting ready to bind some placemats and wondered about using the binder attachment. I want mitred corners and am not sure how you achieve mitred corners with this attachment which looks great for going in a straight line or around a gentle curve.

I have it and love it for binding.  You can use it for multiple things like binding quilts, placemats, or even bibs.  The uses are unlimited.  I am glad I purchased it.

I am wondering if anyone has the Binder attachment (the expensive one - not the one for just prefolded bias tape).  If you do is it something you use all the time, like everytime you bind a quilt.  I'm trying to decide if the investment is worth it?

Re: Windows 8 and MC `120000 software

Maggie, on turning on and off. I've had computers that have a job to do, that were in operation 24/7/365 for years, in the neighborhood of 10+. Only changed out due to the companies updating their background software. Never suffered failures. I can't tell you how many "failed drives" , usually the term when powering up or trying to, that I've came across. Except for not wanting to run up the electric bill, I prefer them on for longevity but still shut them down when not around.. That's just me. Click Free is my back up. Let em fry. Not a plug for Click Free, just that I know I won't lose anything and it's dirt simple. Keep on sewing..

Re: How to search for information/ bobbin thread question

maggie cooper
 

120 /2 simply means 2 ends of 120 which equals 60.  The different thread composition ,i,e, natural fibre or synthetic determines which count is used.  Use your 120 exactly as you would use a 60.

Re: Machine wont turn on

Jim, I must correct my last post.  I am not sure the service guy said that I had blown the A Board.  He just said that it had blown and that it would need to be replaced.

Took my machine in on Friday and the service man called me this afternoon and he said I had blown the A Board.  I assume that is a computer board.  Is this a common problem with this machine?  It is covered by the warranty but I do not want to have to go through this again when it is not covered.  I am thinking about getting the 15000 and giving this machine to my daughter, but I do not want her to have to replace this A Board every couple of years.

 

Taking issue with semantics, Jim says:

I can accept that the A board (main computer board) *could* be "blown", but I take exception to his statement that you did it. Unless you poured a coke in the machine or tossed it in a bathtub full of water, you had nothing to do with the hardware failure. We've seen a few instances of this problem with new 15000s, not so much on 12000s. I would be inclined to chalk it up to either a defective component or a manufacturing error. I would also be inclined to believe it's the switching power supply rather than the A board. Most "old school" service technicians chalk up every electrical failure as a fault of the A board, which actually fails very rarely. In the case of the 12000, there are no accessible fuses to change, but I'd bet my socks that the real problem is a fuse in the power supply.

 

In any case, once the problem is fixed I wouldn't worry about it happening again, especially if it really is the A board.

Re: Binder Attachment

Lyn Jeglum <bmmlmj@...>
 

I borrowed the binder from a friend (who thinks it is great) to try it out on my 12K. There is a bit of a learning curve to get the binding to look good. I prefer to do my binding with the 1/4 inch walking foot because I think it is quicker and does a better job.

How to search for information/ bobbin thread question

ceilsews <no_reply@...>
 

I looked for a way to search for this information but haven't been able to find it.  The 15000 came with a spool of 100/2 thread.  Is this what I should use for embroidery or can I use 60?

Unless you pay extra for some sort of bundle, most PCs do not come with Office.
