Re: 15000 foot lifter chirp

When you start to sew with the foot up it will flash that light while lowering. The machine also periodically checks the bobbin thread remaining, which will make a click sound. Everything you have described is normal.

Darning Foot vs Free Motion Feet for free motion quilting

shejmartin1
 

I just finished Leah Day's Crafty class about free motion quilting.  She uses an open toe darning/hopping foot to free motion quilt without putting the feed dogs down (she covers them with a Supreme Slider).  She also is using a Janome 7700.    She says the stitch quality is almost always better with the feed dogs up, but covered.


I have a Janome 12000.  I experimented with using both the free motion feet that just snap on and the darning foot that came with the machine.  I couldn't figure out a way to use the free motion feet without the feed dogs down.  When using the darning foot, I couldn't figure out a way to adjust it so it was higher above the quilt.  I'm thinking the convertible free motion set that I can buy might work better.  Anyway, I didn't notice much difference in stitch quality; but felt slightly that maybe it was easier to stitch with the darning foot because the fabric didn't move quite so easily.


I'd like to know which feet, people free motion quilt with.  Should I follow what Leah Day says on our machines?  


And Jim, do you and your wife an opinion?  Thanks.



Diane says:

She would not leave the feed dogs up while covered, as the feed dogs will drag on the covering. Either cut a hole for the feed dogs or drop them. The hopping foot is great when there are a lot of seams to go over. Since it is hopping from the needle movement you cannot adjust the height and you don't need to. To do free motion with the feed dogs up, pick stitch #1 instead of the quilting stitches.

Janome group,
Does anyone use an apple computer with the 15000 horizon suite?

Hello,

Will Foot Book ever be available for Android? 

Pretty please,  Jim : )

Sighing deeply, Jim says:
Imagine that the only way to do embroidery was to do it free-motion on a straight stitch treadle machine. That's the Android development system compared to Apple iOS. Most app development companies have dedicated Android and iOS developers. It's very difficult for one person to do both, and those developers that do work on both platforms prefer iOS because the tools are so much better.

Then there's the question of which Android. There are 6 different versions of Android, and the latest work on less than 15% of the devices. And that's not counting Amazon Kindle, which is different from all the others. One of my app clients who is trying to find an Android developer has been told that at the very best their Android app will work on 80% of the devices.

Finally there is the issue of virus. Some 97% of malware is on Android devices. Of the malware on iOS devices, the only infections have been on "jailbroken" devices that have been modified by their owners to bypass Apple's internal security.

So to answer your question, no FootBook will not be available for Android. Janome seems to agree, having chosen the iPad for the 15000.

15000 foot lifter chirp

Sheri-A
 

I'm a newbie. I just got my 15000 and am wondering if it is normal to hear a chirp or adjusting sound every time I start to sew. I notice that the light on the presser foot button blinks at the same time and the noise comes from the same area.


Thanks, 

Sheri

Hi,
I'm hoping someone can remember an embroidery design that was popular a couple years or so ago for a huge embroidered Christmas tree.  I bought it as a download and had never stitched it out.  We had computer problems a year or so ago and ended up getting a new computer.  I'm afraid I lost that design.

Would anyone know the company and design?  I'm sorry for being so vague on my descript ion!  I remember it would take a long time and multiple hoopings to stitch out.

If I can find the company and the design, I'm hoping I can download it again.  Somewhere I had printed out the directions for the embroidery but not finding that in my messy sewing room either!

Thanks for any help,

Janome 12000 stitch names

Judy Albert
 

Dear group,
Is there a file of stitch names for the 12000?  I have the 6500 and 9900 stitch names from a 2005 post from the Janome 6500 group that was derived from the Singer  machine names.  I woulld like to know the names of the MC12000 stitches coss referenced to their numbers since they are different from the 6500 and 9900.   I checked the files and attachments on the 12000 yahoo groups but couldn't find the stith names.Thanks in advance.

Hi again,

Well, it was the Tree-mendous design.  I bought it on Embroidery.com.

The good news is I had an account with them.  The lady I spoke with told me as long as I had an account I could log in and download it again.  So glad!

Thanks everyone.  I might check out the one from BFC Creations sometime.

By the way, does everyone know about Hatched in Africa designs?  I just found out about them Tuesday when I took another class on my 15000.  One of the ladies had stitched out their Giraffe design that has jewels.  It is stunning.  Guess she also has one called Jacobean Peacock.  It looks like a large project but beautiful.  I put some designs on my wishlist!

Then there is a link for another company to buy the "bling" items. :)

Thanks again,

Re: Choosing between Janome 12000 & 15000

Beverly Leischner
 

Jim, This may be a silly question but how do we determine if a design is a micro embroidery design or not? Is there some way of knowing if we should be using a finer thread or needle?

How do we know which of the designs on the 15000 are micro embroidery designs?

As you can tell I am finding this a little confusing.

Thanks for any clarification.

Bev in Alberta


With a jaunty micro wave, Jim replies:
The only micro embroidery designs I've seen were those in the Janome Micro Embroidery Kit for the MB-4. On the 15000 the only micro embroidery is the micro Gothic font for doing very small letters.

Thanks, Joy.
It works on Chrome but not when I tried my usual, Firefox. 
Chrome seems very similar to Firefox now and I may continue to use it as, if I remember correctly, Craftsy works better on it too.

Hi Maria,

I purchased a Christmas Tree called Tree-mendous Tree a couple winters ago.  I couldn't remember where I purchased the design, but here is a youtube video on how to do it.  You should be able to download it again, unless they don't keep your information and orders.

Don't understand why it won't open now as I saw it originally.  Cleaned out my computer and rebooted.  We have fiber-optic cable... if it worked once, and won't open again....?
