The post from Janet Piekarski on July 10 has the part number as 832420302.

Updated 15000 feature list

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

We already had built-in WiFi for communication with iPad. (iPad free for some unknown number of purchasers.)

New foot control with thread cutter activation.

Independent bobbin winder.

Really big and bright screen, viewable from any angle. No more wheel and much more user-friendly than any previous screen.

Looks to have the same feet included as the 12000, as well as 5 hoops:
SQ14 - 140x140
SQ23 - 230x230
GR - 230x300
FA10 - 100x40
ASQ22 - 220x220
HH10 - 100x90 (optional hat hoop)
Note - rectangular (think 5x7 or thereabouts) hoop in development for 12000 & 15000.

More news later.

The new format at Yahoo has me bamboozled in how to search for messages.  Try searching for a message about a square peg in a round hole.  I think you are looking for the silver thread guide we used on the 11000.  I use mine on my 12000 - I carefully but firmly put it in the hole for the extra thread spool.  Hope this helps.

I think it was a thread about thread guides. I remember seeing it, but that's all I remember.

Re: new MC 15000 machine

It seems doubtful since all of the hoops are the same ones the 12000 uses. The maximum stitch count will be at least 200,000 though.

Re: 1/4" seam problem

I was thinking during the evening last night that those that have said they have used the patchwork application and still are having to move their needle there is no option on the open screen to move the needle for the width only the length.

Did you select the application (the little shirt) and select the Icon " Patchwork."  that gives you a perfect 1/4" seam.  I reduce my stitch length to 1.80 and use my dual feed foot.  When you select the patchwork Icon it moves the needle to position for you.

D2f files

lindabeaulieu863
 

Hi Jim
I have created some new motifs in MBX version 4. I have saved them in a folder in the motif gallery in the program. I can use them but I would like to rename some of them. I tried in the program itself but it won't let me. I can delete them but not rename so I thought I will go through my computer and go to program files in the mbx files in the userletter and the folders are there not as a folder but it looks like a blank page and is called D2f file and I cannot open it to see the motifs inside to rename them. Can they be opened what am I doing wrong? Looking forward to your answer. Thanks for all the help.

First look

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

Two members have posted a link to the 15000 product page. As expected it does have WiFi, and first purchasers will get an iPad with it. The unveiling did not mention features, so we won't have details until after the first classes today. Diane is most impressed with the screen, which is not only very large, but also well laid out to minimize page turning. More to follow later today.

I have been playing around with this 1/4" issue as well. While Janome
indicates to use foot O I have found that a couple of the other feet
have marks on them that indicate where a 1/4" is in relationship to
the edge of the foot and where your needle is located. I use the 1/4"
seam for making my doll clothes so I switch back and forth with the
feet, straight seam and zig zag. Thinking out of the box is the answer
to this problem. I also wish there was a 1/4" foot that was just
basically smaller in size for my small project work. Hope these ideas
work for you. - JTB
