Thanks Jim. It didn’t sound on the up-and-up to me.

That's good to know! Maybe that will be helpful for others, but I don't have the Flower Stitch attachment anymore, gave it away when I gave the machine.

The "cycling through error messages" sounds bogus to me. Normally if there is an error it stops right there. I would take it back to your original dealer who serviced it to begin with. There's no such thing as "sat for too long".

If you could find an adapter for the high shank-to-low shank you could maybe get the Flower Stitch Attachment to work.
I did that on another brand of machine that came with an adapter, but when we (at our local shop) looked for an adapter to fit the Janome High Shank machines I never found one that fit correctly.
I think the one we tried was from Elna.

Servicing an 11000

Lynn Fisher
 

I gave my daughter my 11000 about 4 years ago. I had it serviced just before I gave it to her. She has not used it very much but wanted to start using it and so took it in for servicing again (different dealer). The dealer said it keeps cycling through error messages when he tries to turn it on. He thinks it might have sat for too long, and that a lot of the internal lubrication might not be good. He said he would almost have to rebuild it to fix it at this point, and that it would take a long time. Does this sound accurate? It has had no problems up to now. Should I take it to my original dealer for another opinion? Any ideas on what could be going on?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Conversion software

Outcome....
In the past I used Convert-It, but it won't run on the newest Mac OS.  To make a long story short, my Mac desktop in and older Mac and could not be updated  beyond Catalina.  (Lucky me!)  Convert-It opened but it asked me for my Key Code.  I have no idea where I would have saved that, so I wrote to Embird.  They found my original registration and gave me the code!  I'm back in business!!!!  Thanks for all your suggestions.

It's possible that they started making it again, or more likely found some stock they are trying to get rid of. We've been out of the business for 10 years, so anything is possible! There might be a dealer somewhere that still has one.


Re: Flower Stitch Attacment

 

My doubt was because I have the 6500P and in Janome América it appears in the optional  accessory list for this machine.

There are two reasons the Flower Stitch attachment is not in FootBook:

1. Janome America sold off the last of them more than 10 years ago and no longer make it.

2. It does not work with most of the machines that have even feed or embroidery built in.

It's much like the Spirograph that many of us bought years ago to keep the kids amused. After a few hours it's not much fun any more and never gets used again.

Re: Conversion software

Jim Stutsman
 

You don't need to pay anything, because it's not an upgrade. Automator is a built-in program in macOS. Watch the video that Mattes provided to see how it is used.


Re: Conversion software

I have StitchBuddy version 2.18. How I can upgrade to have this converter? How much do I have to pay for this upgrade?

Toni, unfortunately I cannot see to which post you're replying to, but in case "one at a time" is referring to StitchBuddy:

The app itself converts only single designs by saving in a different file format. But StitchBuddy is complemented by a couple of plugins enhancing macOS, like the Quick Look preview or Automator actions. With the latter you an easily create a batch converter, which allows to select and convert multiple files without any manual step required.

Here is a video tutorial how to create such a converter: <https://stitchbuddy.de/mac/support/videos/video08.html>

I would appreciate your feedback about the Flower Stitch attachment part number 202261003. It is not in the Foot Book 
Thank you in advance

Looks like it does one at a time.  I would like to batch convert.


Re: Conversion software

I have stitchbuddy.  Will have to check out the tutorial.


Re: Conversion software

But from what I can tell, only one at a time and doesn't seem to offer a thumbnail view of everything on my thumb drive?


Re: What is causing my thread to come out of the takeup lever?

Pat
 

Thank you all very much. It was generous of all of you to take the time and go to the trouble to write an explanation and take pictures.  I will be extra careful threading my machine from now on, try reverse threading and keep in mind that if all else fails, a new take-up lever may do the trick.

Thank you all and keep healthy.

I'd love to have a good explanation for this too.  My 15000 does this while straight stitching with Aurifil thread and others.

Check out Truesizer from Wilcom.  It is free and you can use it to convert files.

I have at least 1K emb. designs, but they need to be converted, or even just viewed in order to add them to Acu Design.  Is there any type of software that will batch convert my emb. designs?  Or be able to view them (in thumbnails)?  I had Convert-it, but it no longer works on Big Sur (Mac) and I’ve written to Embrilliance - there is no upgrade.  They just want me to spend $139 for a new d/l!
