Re: News for the 15000?

I would guess that within the next two years there will be a new version of the 15000 with the Continental as its base and a lot of new neat features including a larger hoop or two with the new attaching system. That said, the Continental weighs a ton so it will likely weigh a ton and a half!  :)

Not always new machines but by upgrading a very sustainable long service life. But now I am also curious about what is to come.

I don't have the parts to inspect, but it does not look like it would work. The part numbers are very different and the images in the manuals also look different. Below 18 is HP2 and 28 is VD.


Continental M7

can I also attach the foot VD or ED to the foot of the HP2 at the M7 Continental? I have not found a narrow dual transport foot in the delivery. Greetings Manuela


Re: 15000 stitching out of line

Hello Jim Thanks for your help. I checked with the plastic template and it was centred OK. I also digitised a square to fit the hoop and it stitched OK. I then realised that it was not the last part of the design that I had  stitched that was placed wrong but actually the parts up to that point. They were not centred in the hoop. I had sewn theses first parts yesterday and the part which I thought was wrong was done today. It was actually the right one! So whatever was wrong yesterday seems to have been corrected today!! I then tested it by stitching the first part of the design and the part that I did today and they are lined up perfectly. Panic over. Thanks for your support, Jim.

Temporarily put the plastic template in the hoop, then open the design but don't stitch it. Check to see if the needle is over the center hole in the template. If it's not try recalibrating the hoop. If you can't get it centered the hoop attachment bracket may twisted. That can happen if the hoop is unable to move during embroidery, either because it hit something or there was a thread jam. In that case you should see your dealer, as the hoop can be mechanically centered in addition to the built-in centering. Since you digitize you can check for this problem yourself. Just digitize a square box along the edges of the hoop (Use a large one like SQ22). Use a simple run line stitch. Hoop some stabilizer and stitch with black thread. Then put the plastic template in the hoop and see how closely the stitch lines fall to the outside lines of the template. If they are skewed then you have found the problem. Leave the design in the machine and alert your dealer so it can be used for testing.

Jim, I am hoping that you can help. I am stitching an applique snowman but when I started to stitch the backing fabric in place the line of stitching was away out of line. I have stitched this before with no problems. I checked on the computer that the design was OK (I digitised this myself). I sent it again to the machine in case it had somehow gone wrong there. I switched off the machine, removed and replaced the embroidery unit but still the same. Help!

Re: Acuedit not getting new designs :(

Mattes
 

Unfortunately Apple has changed the way an app is shown in "Open in" with iOS 13: If you have multiple apps able to open files with the same file extension, things become tricky. Depending on the way these apps register for a file type and their installation order, they might vanish from the "Open" menu. A temporary fix is sometimes deleting / reinstalling the app. Or copy designs with "Files" in the folder of an app (I think AcuEdit doesn't support this) ... in the long run the developer needs to revise his app.

BTDT, Mattes

Yes, files are now downloading in safari , and I can tell they are all there because I can open them in stitchbuddy and airstitch...but there is no way to get them to acuedit now, as the acuedit is no longer on the share list or on the copy to list, it is just gone :( I have shut everything down and restarted, and there is no update for acuedit.

Re: Acuedit not getting new designs :(

I am losing my mind today I go to actually use Acuedit...guess what ‘copy to acuedit’ is no longer an option! And not an option when I go to the edit icon either... :( guess omg there was a lag in that iOS 13.2 hitting my ipdad....I reread our directions and I never get to the part with the download circle in top right corner. It looks like nothing has happened, but I can find it in recents folder if I tap it I can get it to open in the stitch buddy, but I cannot get it over to acuedit... :(
I must be missing something?

You won’t be able to use the wifi functions because the 14 isn’t wifi enabled.  But I used the acudesign with dropbox and transferred to USB from Dropbox on my PC.  You can get a USB that fits iPad and pc but it’s a bit big and your machine might struggle to read it.


Re: Question about bobbins

Lyn Quine
 

I have my bobbin warning set to 0.5, from when I get the first warning to it stopping when in embroidery mode, I know I have around 3000 stitches.  If it stops before the end of the design I gauge whether or not there’s visually enough to finish either the colour or end the design.  If I think there’s enough, I turn the bobbin reminder off so I can finish.  I make sure to turn it back on when I change the bobbin

Thank you!  That’s good to know – saves me money.  😊 I already have a USB flash drive that I use to load embroidery designs to my small Brother machine.  Glad I can use the same process.

You do NOT need an iPad with the 14000. Because the 14000 does not have WiFi, there is no way to send designs directly to the machine from an iPad. You can, however, get a USB flash drive that connects to both the iPad and the machine to send designs, but if you have a Windows PC you can do the same thing just as easy. AcuEdit and AcuSetter will not be usable with the 14000 because they rely on WiFi communication. Since you are a Windows user you should probably plan on using AcuTools included with the machine. The features are pretty much the same as those in Horizon Link. If at some point you want an iPad for reasons other than the 14000, that's fine, but at this stage it would not do anything for you.

Question about bobbins

bhoryn
 

Any idea about how much thread is left on bobbin when you get the warning that there may not be enough thread left to finish design.     I’d like to know approximately how many stitches before I run out of thread.    I wasn’t sure this morning so filled a new bobbin and took out the previous bobbin.  However, it looked like I would have had enough to finish the last 1,000 stitches.     Seems to me to be a big waste of bobbin thread.

Re: Janome 15000 foot pedal

Cat - N
 

I had the same problem with the foot pedal, too. It started after I turned the machine back on the next day, after it had been sewing perfectly, so nothing at all had happened to cause any issue.  No idea what the issue was because it worked fine for my dealer, too, about 200 miles from my home...LOL. He replaced it anyway...under warranty...and I had him service the machine while it was there. I forget the cost, and I also purchased the HP2 foot from the dealer too, so there was additional cost over the cost of the service. It was quite a few months ago when it happened, and I had only had the 15000 for about 3 years when it happened. But, 'parts are parts' and you never know what will go wrong with them. The actual service cost was not an unreasonable amount for the peace of mind that such a fantastic machine was 'seen by its doctor' and given a clean bill of health,  and cleaning probably needed to be done anyway.

Take care!

Re: Another question

Cat - N
 

Hi, Beth! It sounds like you are in "Murphy's Law" mode, but hopefully it will soon be over. Getting the bobbin case installed correctly can be a bit fiddly, but once installed correctly, next time you go to remove it, just take note of the position. If you don't turn the hand wheel,  ‎the bobbin case should go back just as before. Even a picture with your phone might help until the get used to it. 

I have had the thread wind under the bobbin once in my lifetime of sewing and it only happened ‎a couple years ago on my 15000.  It was not the fun you'd sign up for and I hope never to have it happen again. I do wind bobbins, but mostly for sewing. For most embroidery, I use prewound bobbins on Janome bobbins.  When I get that message, I can just pop out the 'nearing empty' bobbin and pop in a full one. The bobbins I get have 108 bobbins in a box. They are not the cheapest prewounds, but I like that I have real Janome bobbins to wind for sewing.   I use the remaining thread in sewing, piecing, or test stitching...or hand sewing. No waste...LOL 

I also have the 5-thread stand, which is very convenient, although on a single needle embroidery machine, only one thread is used at a time. But it ‎keeps me from knocking off the big thread stand, and I can 'stage' thread, or keep the ones used most often ready to go.  I had trouble deciding on whether to get the 2-thread or the 5-thread, since generally speaking, the most I used at once is with a twin needle. I also wondered how 'in the way' the 5-thread stand would be across the back of the machine. However, I do love that 5-thread stand, and when binding a quilt, I put the binding, wound into a roll, on a spool pin on that stand, and pull the binding under the head of the machine while sewing it on...very neat and efficient, and it just sits there patiently waiting its turn under the needle while I quilt the quilt, make garments, etc. 

Good luck!

Apps on 14000

terryj@...
 

Hi all - I'm new to the forum.  My MC 14000 is shipping to me this week (I'm very excited!).  I've read that except for wifi and some stitches and embroidery designs, it functions just like the 15000.  I was told it has Acufil software installed but will I also be able to use the other 'Acu" programs - AcuSketch, AcuEdit, etc. (I don't even know what they all are).  Also - I don't own any apple products so I assume I need to buy an Ipad to be able to download/upload to the machine.  I found a thread that listed the versions of Ipad to purchase for the best results - is that thread current?  FInally, will I use the Janome Horizon Link for anything?  Sorry for the questions - I want my new machine to be as functional as possible.  Thank you!  


Re: Janome 15000 foot pedal

Jean Olson
 

I had that issue. It wasn't the pedal but the power supply inside the machine that powers the foot pedal. It sewed fine with the button. I think the bill was about $280 for fixing it. I tested it by switching pedals with another Janome. 15000 worked fine on my other machine but not the other on the 15000.
