size of hoops

Smith Sarah Ann <sarahannsmith@...>
 

I’m hoping to get a 15000 sometime this year. I was wondering if someone could tell me the “workable” area of the standard sized hoops. I want to create some designs to fit in the workable area, but don’t know the dimensions.


For example, I think (?) there is a 5x7 inch hoop. Does that mean that the hoop itself is 5x7 and you can work a design that is a maximum of say 4.5 by 6.5 inches? Or does that mean that the design size is 5x7 and the hoop itself is a bit larger.


Thanks!


Cheers, Sarah

Thank you. I'll print it off and keep it by the machine when I start.

I think the needle size also depends on the thread.  I personally have not done a quilt that size, but recently finished a twin size one.  It was all squares so I just did a design in each square.  I also did the cross line up the middles.

Recommendations on needle size which worked best for you?
The quilt is 65 x 81 and seemed to me impossible to mark the quilt of this size accurately with a ruler to find the center point to get the crosshairs for where to start. Anyone do quilts of this size using Acufil ? Better method for getting the center point crosshairs? Did you work across from the center and then up or downward?

Would like to hear how you started with this kit. I've seen the videos on Janome and YouTube but would like to hear from actual users on how they tackled it.

I posted in the "File" section a few weeks ago with my instructions on how to quilt with the acufil hoop.

However I didn't do such a large quilt.  You can do across or up/down first; really doesn't matter.  

I've seen videos where they start in upper left corner, but I'm not sure if that would work or not.

Re: 12000 "resume" feature

Thanks, Jim.
Further discussions with bride indicate false thread break msgs. So will go with an A-board replacement. Recent CO&A did not indicate and problems.

Jim notes:
False thread breaks sometimes indicate that the thread is not fully in the tension discs. I've also seen that when the check spring is not functioning.

Jim's response:
The message "Broken Data" seems to have lost something in translation. My best guess is that it' swaying that memory was corrupted in restoring a design for the Resume function. If that's the case it will likely need an A board.

I am digitizing a logo for my daughter and need a font that is a triple run line, not satin stitches. Any suggestions would be most welcome. I suppose I could create the letters (words) myself, but would prefer something a little more professional looking.

Re: MC 15000 died!

Thank you Jim, I appreciate your reply.  My first thought (and fear) was the motherboard.  I will call the dealer.

Not quite lifeless, Jim responds:
Yikes! It sounds like a hardware failure, either power supply or motherboard. I'm afraid dealer intervention may be required and parts may need to be ordered.

Dear Jim , my lovely 12000 when sewing one of the large inbuilt embroidery designs stopped and the screen went blank . I turned it off and then on again nothing . My husband checked the fuse to the main plug it had blown . I always run my machine with a surge suppressor . We have replaced the fuse but the machine does not switch on when turned on and it blew the new fuse also . We are in the UK . So sadly it looks like a long trip to the dealer . 


Any thoughts as to the problem would be appreciated . 


Many thanks Barbara



Jim's response:

The fact that it's blowing the fuse to the main suggests a short circuit inside the power supply of the 12000. There is nothing you can do about that, as it will need replacing, although it should be a warranty replacement. Since you apparently live some distance from the dealer I would advise ringing him/her first. A power supply is not something a dealer would normally keep in stock and it will almost certainly need to be ordered. Sorry for the bad news!


Re: connecting ipad and 150000

Vickie <okbee@...>
 

Hello
I just brought my machine home the other day and I cant get my machine and my ipad to connect.  I have the wireless on machine on but even when I took my machine and ipad into same room with router..........nothing .  I have follow directions to the tee is there something small I am missing.  Something in Itunes.  Please help.
Vickie in Ohio


Trying to make a connection, Jim says:
iTunes is not involved at all in the wireless connection. First you need to make sure that both iPad and machine are on the same wireless network. After setting up the machine check the IP address on the wireless SET screen. This is 4 numbers with dots in between. For most routers the first number will be either 10 or 192. Then go to the SETTINGS app on the iPad and touch "WiFi". The name of your router will appear on the right side with a check mark next to it. Tap that and you can see the IP address of the iPad. The first 3 numbers must match the first 3 on the machine and the 4th number must be different. If this is not the case then you cannot connect.

If your iPad is the one you got with the machine it may need to be updated. Touch the App Store icon (Blue with white "A") and tap "Updates" on the bottom of the screen. If you have anything that needs updating, do that. Also make sure your machine is up to date with version 1.04 or later. Touch the question mark at the bottom to see the machine version. If it's less than 1.04 you will need to download and install the update on your computer so you can put it on your machine.

If this fails to get you going email me directly with as much detail as you can provide.


Re: Janome 12000 Maintenance

Valerie Bennett
 

Hi Jim,
I am restarting this conversation because I have a lady here in Panama that started a non-profit quilting group to teach Panamanian women how to quilt/sew. My friends and I  have been going a long time to see her and buy fabric to help with the great job she has been doing for years with this initiative.

I trust her knowledge completely and she has someone that she has trusted with every machine she has - he is capable of doing the cleaning maintenance and also checking the electronic parts. So instead of dragging my 12000 to the US for maintenance, I think this is a good option of me. She is checking with him now about his knowledge of my machine - the 12000. 

My question - I may be running into some sensor problems - maybe just an adjustment or a complete replacement - not sure. She says he can at least test them.  Is there any way that I can get a complete list of the sensors on this machine? I do get error messages that have become more frequent that stop the sewing and say  "Make sure the correct presser foot is attached" - which it's always fine.

He is traveling across the country to help service many machines so I want to maximize what I can do in advance. 

Advice/ suggestions?

Thank you,
Valerie 

PS I also did use my small vacuum with no issues and hopefully a cleaner machine!


Sensing concern, Jim says:
What you need is a friendly dealer who can provide you with a copy of the 15000 service manual. It will have instructions on adjusting all of the sensors in the machine. The problem you mentioned is likely one involving adjusting the presser foot sensor, not replacing it. Keep in mind that replacement parts and manuals are only available to authorized dealers. Good luck!

HI all, I have just upgraded to the 15000 and am trying out all its connectivity possibilities. I have got the wi fi working and  and connected to my ipad but have come up with 2 puzzles!

I have read several times on the web that you can download wirelessly to the 15000 from the pc i.e without a USB cable or stick but nowhere in the manual does it tell you how? I know you can from the ipad and I know you can upload to the ipad from the pc. Is there a more direct route? My pc cannot see my 15000 on my network.

Also I have read online that you no longer need to put the emb folder on a USB stick but could drag and drop files.I had to format my stick and still have to use the old folder system in order for the machine to read the files. Again have I missed something?

I have updated machine and software so if someone could tell me If what I was trying to do is possible and if s how I would be very grateful.

Also any videos for the 15000 out there yet?

It looks a great machine ,not yet played much- too busy setting it all up!

Many thanks Jeana




Taking a break from working on 15000 videos, Jim says:

You connect your PC to the 15000 using HorizonLink Suite. Open the EmbLink Tool from the main menu. In that tool click the circle in the top left corner of the window and choose "Connection Settings". That will allow you to connect the machine to the program. At that point you can work wireless, provided that there are not open dialog boxes (pop-ups asking for OK or X to cancel) on the machine and that the machine is in a mode compatible with what you are trying to do on the computer.


Yes, you can drag designs into any folder on a USB stick, or no folder. However if there is already an EMB folder on the stick, the machine will always open there for backward compatibility. To return to the root folder of the USB stick touch the up arrow key to the left of the X in the bottom right corner of the screen. This will reveal designs that are not in folders, and will allow you to choose other folders.


We are working on videos every day, and are still on target for a summer release.There is a LOT of new material to cover and we are shooting much more video than we've done for any other project. We do appreciate your patience - rest assured no one wants to get them out more than we do!

Hi Audrey
Info I have been aware of.. Say your post and thought I would pass this on..
And anyone else that is having issues.. I have yahoo for my web site so I learn a lot of things others don't find out till later on.. Also have a newsletter that is having issues with both yahoo mail and aol mail.. Can not use them.. Since all the changes with yahoo and aol seems the security has been a little tighter on both..

If you have not used your yahoo mail account in a while and deleted the mail etc then it actually goes dorment and they remove it.. You may have to sign up again for a new one if that has been the case and you don't use or check it on a regular basis.. It will send all your mail to spam or bounce it if you don't use it and you have that as your group email too.. That can cause issues with your mail on the group..

You have to have a working yahoo account that you use and check all the time to get group mail and to use the buttons on the groups..

They also have a ymail address now that is another email that is also yahoo based for all the new people signing up from what I understand if you see it that is still part of yahoo mail..

They are just trying to eliminate all the spam going on as much as possible so I don't blame them.. So you might have to sign up again if you have not used it in a while.. That maybe why you are getting that message..

Although it has made the news, and was at first denied, eBay has been hacked. If you have an eBay or PayPal account now would be a really good time to change the password.

Just log out then log back in to yahoo. Yahoo burps periodically. It has nothing to do with you personally or your account. It is just yahoo being yahoo.
