I like the idea of the app.  Any chance it will be available in Android?  I don't use Apple devices.

Thanks,
Nicole

I use the Dual feed foot for straight line quilting. Also I use blue painter's tape to mark some of my lines and the width of the foot for others.

Re: Straight stitch needle plate for embroideery

The left needle position is where the needle should be for embroidery, and the single stitch plate is correct.  There is a PADLOCK icon on the display...that sets the machine up for the needle threader to work (needle and presser foot).  As has been mentioned, pressing needle up/down a couple times is a great idea...needle up/down won't work if the machine is in LOCK mode, though, and the threader won't work if the machine is not in LOCK mode.

Just wondering...did you LOCK the 15000 to thread the needle?

You can use your accufeed foot (walking foot) or your straight stitch foot A.  The bar goes to the back of the foot on your accufeed foot and the bar goes on the shank (attachment) that your A foot attaches to.

I have the 15000 and I was trying to do some straight line quilting and I cannot find out how to put the guide in a foot, also I was not sure which foot to use, can somebody tell me please?
I have the foot app but cannot find what I was looking for.

The manual does show the quilting guide bar placements, and it's real easy...you just slide the guide bar into the small hole on the side of the 'foot holder' including Acufeed.  In the v.3 update manual, you can check out pg 61 and pg 95.  If you don't have that version/manual, it is available for download on Janome's website...or download the manual for your version...the PDF manuals are searchable.  I apologize...I don't have the link handy right now or I would include it.

Carole the needle does not move in embroidery your hoop does so perhaps something is not right with how you have your needle in.

I'm doing my first embroidery on the 15000 and using the straight stitch needle plate. The needle defaults to the left hole
of the 3, not the middle .  Doing that the auto needle threader does not thread the needle.  Can I change the needle position to the middle hole so it will be in the correct position to thread the needle? 
Thanks,
Carole

Just turned machine on. OKAY to resume last pattern. Needle in left hole. Did needle up/down. Came down in left hole. Stayed in left hole when needle up. Hoop moves into position. Needle still in left hole.

If you've used your handwheel to move the needle up or down the needle threader might not be in the correct position so try the needle up/down first.  My needle threader works all the time even while doing embroidery.

Mine does too both on my 15,000 and my 9400.  It always did on my 12,000, and my 7700 as well.  I just had to remember to be sure my needle is all the way up in the shank and I always do needle up and down one time to be sure it is in the right position.

I will see if I can attach clearer images of the designs, too.  If not, if you want, you can send me a direct email to navillusc_@... (minus the _ parts, of course), and I will send the images direct to you...maybe just send me a direct email either way so I know whether or not they reached you.

Can your dealer get you a copy of the designs?  I am not sure I would trust that USB disk (even re-formatted), but maybe, if you took a 'good' USB disk, the dealer could load the designs on there for you.

I plugged the USB "Janome" stick  that came with the R18 hoop into my Windows 10 computer to see what was on it.  I bought it several years ago and wanted to see if there was anything worth using as I can not remember.  The computer told me there was something wrong with it so I tried it in another USB port with the same result and then tried it on a Windows 7 computer which didn't even recognize that the USB was plugged into a spot (I tried a few). 
Is this worth pursuing with Janome?  The designs are so small on their website that it's difficult to evaluate them.
Any thoughts?

I’ve got 2 RE18 hoops got USB sticks with both, opens ok on my computer, moved them across, reformatted the USB and use it on my machines no problem, as a working USB with other designs.  Nobody tries to pinch it as a spare cos it’s got Janome on it, and it isn’t big enough lol handy things to have around.  I also pick up the small older USB sticks, the ones that have been pushed to the back of the drawer no l9nger any good, too small.  I’ve reformatted and they are also in service on my machines.
