Puffy foam

mrswings2@...
 

Can our machines, the 12000, use puffy foam to get the raised satin stitching that some designs offer? If so, are there certain needles, tools, etc., needed to accomplish this other than the foam?

Julie: I haven't found very much regarding the MC12000 HL other than the manual it comes with on the software. I've tried YouTube and have done some things on my own to see how things work. Yesterday I purchased Jim and Diane's video (thank you Jim for the email) V2  MC12000 Embroidery functions since I'm ready to adsorb more info and get into the details of the HL and other functions within embroidery. Janome's materials I find are a  good starting point to learn the basics.

The utterly ignorant chiming in here: I have Jim and Diane’s Foot Book and the DVDs for the 12000 (despite the fact that I’ve never had a 12000 and my 15000 only arrived last week, don’t ask…just go with this odd bit of info). I’ve been sewing for nearly 50 years (started in single-digits!), read voraciously including Threads magazine, and have to say even with a ton of sewing experience, I learned things from the Foot Book about presser feet, to my surprise and delight. I watched the Sewing DVD for the 12000 and it helped me getting started with the 15000. I realize that the Horizon Link Suite is sufficiently different from the 12000’s Horizon Link, that there will be some disconnects, but I expect things like hooking up the embroidery module, hooping, etc. will be the same or nearly so.


All that said, I can heartily recommend the Stutsman’s DVDs. They are TOTALLY worth the price—think of it in terms of taking a workshop. About the same price, except you get a DVD you can review any time you need it.


So I am patiently and eagerly awaiting the next DVD on using the Horizon Link Suite/Embroidery functions on the 15000! My only fear is that they will be available just as my 16-yo son and I head off on a trip of a lifetime (to England) so I’ll have to wait until school begins to really dive in deep!


Cheers, Sarah

How is the best way to learn Horizon Link? Is there a good tutorial on the Janome site or a good manual? I know you can go to the “?” at the top of the program but is that all that is available? Is this the manual? If I wanted to print that all out, I see a print feature but would it print all of the pages or would you have to go to each feature and print separately?


Thanks to anyone that is knowledgeable on this.


Julie


Barely knowledgeable about anything, Jim says:
The print function in the Windows help system prints one topic at a time, the one that is currently open. You could make a manual that way, but the help files are not very good as tutorials. If you are using HorizonLink (12000) as opposed to HorizonLink Suite (15000) Diane’s videos http://www.onlinesewing.com/yahoo12k would be a good choice.

The HL for the 12,000 has a help tool I did not know you were referring to the 15,000. Sorry.  I have not checked the one for the 15,000 .

Thank you for the app for the Janome feet and for helping me work out why it didn't work at first, you were a great help and promptly answered my emails when we couldn't get it to work. Thank you again and I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of your 12000 discs, which I hope arrive this week and I can have a quick look at before I am off on a 3 month holiday to outback Australia.

Re: Stitch speed and tension setting for quilting

Patricia Ward
 

What I do is set my slider to about medium speed, disconnect the foot control, and use the start stop button.  I always do a test piece just to be sure of tension and to get my groove going with the quilting motion. lol 

I find free motion on this machine to be the easiest on any machine I have ever used.

You can adjust the speed using the slider. The speed to use is what is comfortable for you that gets the results you want. Things such as fabrics, thread types and complexity of quilting design need to be considered when choosing speed!

Is there a typical speed you use when quilting a quilt? I noticed that mine is running at 700 according to the display. Also what tension setting do you normally use or do you just keep it on Auto?

Re: Embroidery formats

Use the .jef format. The .pes should translate correctly, not sure about the .dst as I haven’t encountered any of those guys!

What's the difference between .jef, .jef+ and jpx?  I have hundreds of designs in both .dst and .pes that I need to convert to Janome's format and I'm not sure which one to use.  I am using Embird to to the conversion.

Trying to make a difference, Jim says:

JEF is the preferred format for all Janome embroidery machines. JEF+ is used only to store designs internally within the 11000 and later models. It can be read by Janome software, but it is never necessary to use JPX outside the machine. If you are using Embird it may insist on using JPX for designs that use a hoop larger than 5 x 7. This was based on early, erroneous assumptions about what format large hoop designs need. JPX is a special format that allows inclusion of an image file. It is used by Janome's Digitizer MBX product, but none of the standard conversion programs use it.

 

Final answer: Use JEF except when Embird refuses to accept anything but JEF+.

Applique design on MBX

bdake@sbcglobal.net
 

I purchased my 15000 from Love To Sew in Osage Beach, MO. The dealer is an amazing teacher. I've learned so much from her. But, before the lessons are finished, I'm having to move away. She was going to give me a private lesson on how to make my own applique. However, she has become ill. Does anyone know of a video teaching this part of the MBX software?


Jeannie soon to be living in Imperial, MO



Taking time out from video editing, Jim says:

We are working on videos daily. I'm quite confident that no one will have as comprehensive a set as we are doing. As soon as they are ready they will be announced here. Stay tuned!


Re: MBX

Virginia
 

Go to your computer and look for your MBX file.  Open it up and look for "Revert".  It will give you the option to bring your software to the default and it will delete all of the files that may be getting in the way.  It will not delete any files you have saved only those the program has saved.  Then open your program and start again.  It will bring your program back to your default.  Do not uninstall it.  Hopefully you have not done that.  If you have then there are many more steps for you to take.  Just let us know.  Also go to your tools and make sure all of your selections have a check mark to be sure you have activated your tools.

Help! I have the current version of MBX and am teaching an introduction class tomorrow. I import an image into the software but the "click-to-parallel weave" group of tools is not available. I use these tools quite a bit and have imported different types/formats of images and it doesn't seem to matter. These tools are grayed out and unavailable. I'm thinking it is something simple but have tried all I can think of in my frazzled state. Any suggestions would be SO appreciated!
Thanks!
