Speaking of Digitizer, MBX 5, how can I get my tool bar to show up permanently on my home page. I have looked everywhere except in the correct place. Thank you in advance.


Re: AcuMonitor

It's very doubtful that AcuMonitor would be range-limited, as it would require some very sophisticated software and techniques that Apple might not even allow in an app. The WiFi signal on the 15000 is not very powerful, and the antenna is buried inside a lot of metal, which further degrades the signal. It's more likely that something is weakening the signal from the machine to the router, possibly due to you moving. If we had the ability to see radio waves you could probably see the signal getting warped, degraded, or whatever is happening. Even the direction the machine is facing can affect the signal strength. If you are moving the iPad closer to the router it may be blocking the weaker signal from the machine.

Hi Jim,
My iPad works just fine with my 15000.  What I'm finding is that if I leave the sewing room and walk away with the iPad to a room far away from the sewing room, the monitor stops working.  I've had to have a booster or second router (not sure which) installed at the opposite corner of the first and the TV doesn't give me grief or the internet either anymore.  What I'm wondering is "Does the 15000 have a range limit for the monitor to work?"  If it does it isn't really a huge problem, but has me more curious than anything else.  This may be something you've been asked before, but I can't remember  As you know I love gadgets and technology, but only know enough to get myself into trouble from time to time, and since I retired from a job that required I know my computer, I haven't bothered to keep up.

I have Harry Potter's Gryffindor stitching out - I took your advise and that of others, and purchased a design - I couldn't have digitized it myself for less than $5 and that is Canadian Funds.  I did a test stitch out and Sarah is just thrilled - we picked out the colours she liked last night and now I'm doing the really thing.  I'll post a picture when I'm finished.

Thanks for all your help.

Thank you so much for your tips!  I’m very excited to get to know my machine!

Thank you Donna,
I did try that but it refused to upgrade.
I was able to get it back to the previous version but didn’t have time to work with it yesterday.

Nothing like a computer to make you feel like a dumby!

Terry, I believe what you should be doing is found on the start menu of your PC.  Click on Start, find Digitizer in the list of programs.  Click on the down arrow to see the rest of the options and then select and click on the option “Re-install Hasp Drivers”.   I’ve attached a photo to help you find this.

Theresa-

Hope this will help you with your embroidery on a shirt.

So- give it a try.  I'm always very pleased with shirts that I do this way.  Child shirts have a standard 1-1/2in distance from bottom of neckline to the top of the design.  Depending on the size of the child...  Baby shirts may need to be slightly higher (1in) or if doing a onesie- might be 2in down.  And as a child gets older - you can adjust the distance for their size...  younger teens being avg 2in etc.

 

Hope this info helps!

@Meryl Marolies

My favourite metallics are Kingstar Metallic Threads. 

I use them on both Janome 11000 and 15000

My only issue is they don't do a purple metallic in the range . . . sighs.

How do I print them from the 15000?  I’d prefer not to use embird.

I owned a 12000 for 6.5 years and loved it. I honestly have to say as much as I loved it it was not the best for that many layers of fabric. Even with the walking foot. At the time I had the 7700QCP and when sewing thick layers that was the best. It embroidered fantastic and regular sewing great but not thickness. Now I have the new 15000 Quiltmaker and the 9400 upgraded and both of them handle layers great.

Subject: [onlinesewing-janome] Sewing on heavy denim with a 12000

I have the opportunity to purchase a Memory Craft 12000 for $2,200.  It was, literally, owned by a little old lady who bought it at a Sewing Expo and then found she couldn’t operate it ( the computer was too much for her).  It has less than 20 hours of use on it.  It’s been closed up and sitting unused in the spare bedroom for 3 years.   I know this seems like a silly question for such a high end machine with so many fancy functions, but can it sew over 4 layers of denim?  My old machine (admittedly a mid range Viking I bought 25 years ago which recently died) couldn’t handle it and it was a frequent frustration when I was trying to hem jeans and would hit that inside double seam.


Re: Sewing on heavy denim with a 12000

Jim Stutsman
 

Congratulations on your purchase! Yes, your machine should be fine to go over heavy denim, provided that you know a few tips:

  • You need to use an appropriate needle. The ball-point "universal" needles don't work as well as a sharp needle. Schmetz sells these as Jeans needles, and a 14 (or larger if using thicker thread) would be the best choice. The Janome/Organ needle is sold as a "Denim" needle. Don't use a Janome blue tip or red tip, as they are universal.
  • When you come to the "hump" of the flat felled seam, you are going from one thickness to another that is double thickness or more. You'll want to use the 'A' presser foot. Stop with the needle down when you come to the edge of the thick part. Raise the presser foot slightly, press in the black button on the side of the foot, then lower the presser foot while holding the button in. This will stop the foot from pivoting, so it stays level as you sew over the hump. Once you are over the hump, the button will pop out automatically. If you have our FootBook app the video for presser foot A will show this process.
  • Another trick is to use an accessory to match the thicknesses at the hump. Dritz has a device called the Jean-a-ma-jig that you can place under the foot in front of the thick seam. This matches the thicknesses and allows the machine to sew over the hump much easier. Your machine came with something that works the same way, called a button shank plate. It's made for sewing on buttons with a shank, but can also be used as a hump jumper. (Page 3 in the manual, item 35)
  • Finally, it may be necessary to reduce the foot pressure a bit. Your machine has automatic pressure regulation, but you can reduce it if you need to. On really thick fabrics it sometimes helps to reduce the pressure just a bit if the machine is struggling to feed the fabric. (Page 22 in the manual)

   I have had my 12000 for over five years now and love it’s versatility. Beautiful embroidery but mine can easily handle thicker fabrics as well. 
If sewing denim I use the walking foot and a denim needle and speed slow. No problem.

Jim, do you know if this hack would include viewing an Instagram picture that is on your timeline in a group by making the picture larger?  I don’t have an Instagram or google picture sharing account. 
 
Thanks,

Re: Facebook question

I think Facebook is ok for the groups that you have to be approved for. There is a main focus, and the admins/moderators have some control over the people who comment. But for general Facebook timelines it is definitely a waste of time. I would rather search online for info that I want than sit there and look at stuff I did not ask to see.

MeWe, in that sense is much better. there is no advertising to interrupt what you are looking at, and there is a better level of privacy. I belong to several groups on MeWe and we have not had any difficulties in that respect.

I was going to work on a new embroidery pattern and when I opened Digitizer  it said to update it. So,being the obedient person that I am I started to do that.
I only use this computer for embroidery. It did not complete the upgrade. Said it timed out. Tried twice then gave up.
But to night when I tried to open Digitizer I have a message saying Unable to access Sentinel Run-Time Environment.

Please run “Reinstall Hasp Drivers’ from the Start Menu and try again.
If the problem persists please contact support for assistance (HOO33)

I have no idea what this means and we don’t have a hasp any more nor do we hae a disc.
Thanks for any advice.
