Something is wrong with the drive mechanism. It could be a broken belt, loose screw, or something else inside the embroidery unit. This is not something you can fix. It will have to be opened up by a repair technician.

Besides taking the machine for repairs is there anything I can do? My embroidery unit go back and forth but not up and down. It was working fine. I took it off and cleaned it after a big project. Just made sure no pins or thread was places they should not be. Put it back on now it is stuck in home position. It does go right to left though

No, Gini, I went to Wades gatherings in VA, MD, CT, and New York.   I am an East Coast resident.  Would have loved to have met you though.  Good for you still sewing at the young age of 85. I hope to be doing the same!

The straight stitch foot and plate are awesome.

Yesterday I finally got to my 15000 after the update. I just love the my 15000 on my iphone. I was amazed at the update! I love the ruler work addition and started practicing that and the free quilting. I am going to watch all the videos on the updates. It is like having a new machine. I am going to try the straight stich plate and foot for my piecing next. I just wanted to let everyone know how happy I am with the update!

Yes, we did Sue.   That was in the days of the 9000.   Long ago and far away......

Thank you! I overlooked that button as I was looking on the right side of the window. I have 1.2 so I need to update. My machine’s been in the shop and took a round trip to Mahweh to get fixed! Never did find out specifically what was the issue, but after parting with over $300 (mostly shipping both ways) I have it back and it appears to be working once again.

Open Horizon Link Suite, the top-level "menu" program. Click the small icon in the top left corner of that window and then choose "About Horizon Link Suite" from the menu that opens. If you see version 1.31 you can be confident that you have all the latest versions, as all programs are updated in each update. Note that some of the component programs in HLS my have a different version, e.g. 1.30. That's OK. As long as the menu is 1.31 you are up to date.

When you first turn your machine onn the opening screen tells you what version you have.  In your software go to the Help tool in your software and select "about" and it tells you what version you have.

A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away I released a program called EasyHoop that allowed multiple designs to be stitched in hoop 5 (the slider) for the 10000.

The next one (top right) was off just a little, with some gaps between the outline and the body. By the time it got to the 4th one it was a mess, full of gaps and misaligned pieces. Why? A key part of digitizing is pull compensation, the art of structuring a design so that each layer is placed to align properly with regard to the pull that previous layers have made to the fabric. Without this all designs would require many layers of stiff stabilizer. When you sort the colors, to minimize thread changes, you throw pull compensation out the window. Pull now occurs all over the hoop and the compensation the original artist built in is no longer effective. Duplicating designs to get more in a hoop is often used to save stabilizer. In the case of lace, though, the wash away stabilizer must be VERY stout, as lace really tears it up. If enough stabilizer is lost, each subsequent design can wind up shifting while stitching, resulting in lace that falls apart or looks bad. A good way to avoid this is to use a woven wash away that is more like fabric. It holds up better under all those needle penetrations.

I've tried to say this same thing to the group when asked the question about duplicating multiple pieces of free standing lace. As a result, I've gotten negative responses from people claiming that it's not so. I'm glad to read that you also agree. It's best to be mindful that the slower stitching time may result in a better end result! At least that's what I prefer, trying to get the best results and not waste my time and materials. If the design isn't dense then it is an okay thing to duplicate and color sort, but starting out by considering the possible distortion in the hoop is a big deal.

The 11000 hoops fit only the Memory Craft 11000. They are unique to that machine.

I had a Janome 11000se with embroidery Hoops. That machine failed after having it four years. Was purchased as a demo. Can those hoops be used on the 15000?  If not I am going to sell the 11000se Hoops. Thanks

If you are thinking to be able to save time by stitching out one color for all of the designs then go to the next color for all of the designs, it may not work as well as you are thinking. Depending on the density of the design, you can encounter push/pull issues that will distort the fabric in other areas of the hoop enough that the jumps with the subsequent colors do not line up well.

I made this mistake as a “new” embroiderer with these seductively large hoops.
