Re: Interesting article on update to Acusketch

Pam,
That seems pretty reasonable.  I was expecting it to be about twice that although I got a set of two stylus (i?) pens on Amazon for about that.  They had extra tips so they must wear out or something.  What I really need is a way to ensure a straight line when I draw.  I tried using a ruler but it just made the screen zoom in or out.  Acusketch has a lot of potential but not for those of us who can't even trace something (I've tried).  But I'm getting better at curvy lines so that may what I focus on.  I'd like to be able to take a picture of my pieced block then draw something for the machine to quilt. 
Thanks for letting us know that the pens are available.

Editing an embroidery design as it is sewing

Cynthia Dickerson
 

I was sewing out a Christmas design and the bobbin thread was showing on the top of my fabric.  I stopped the machine to do a little adjusting and I could not find any way to make an adjustment for this?  Where is it at?  I could not find anything in the book either!  Thank you for any help!


There is no adjustment that can be made "on the fly". Instead you should stop the machine, note the stitch number, change the needle tension (-), and then start the design over after skipping forward to the stopping point. An easier, and better, method would be to stop, cut the thread, and change to the yellow dot bobbin case. Backup a few stitches to eliminate raveling and you're good to go.

Good to know that it works, Ceil. Thanks, Sandie My email must be changed to stitchin211@... since I caught this thanks to a new 'popup' app. Otherwise, I would never see it as the current gmail is overrun by spam so badly that I never open it! I wonder how I get it changed? I'll figure it out.

Go to the group page on Yahoo. Click the black circle with the question mark in it, below the banner on the right side. That will get you to the help system and you can get the instructions there. Only you can change the email address.

Hi Ceil,
Repeated information is always appreciated.  We need reminding often of what our machines can do for us and that basting issue is a naughty one to figure out.  I know that I’ve sometimes basted more than once and it never did hold all brought the design.  So thank you for sharing,

Ceil J
 

Please ignore if this is a repeat but I know the question has come up here before about members being unhappy as the basting stitch doesn't seem to work.
Someone suggested doing pressing the needle up/down key to have the needle take a stitch in the center (need not be) of the quilt so that the basting stitch has some bobbin thread to grab onto.  Well, I've been doing that and now the basting stitch works every time. 
Hope this isn't a repeat of old information.  If it is just ignore :)

Re: 9mm Quilt Binder Set

1.  UPDATE regarding the Quilt Binder Set being sold at the link I sent yesterday as "informational purposes only" (in case group members might be interested in this set at the lower price offered):

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Janome-9mm-Quilt-Binder-Set/201936448065?epid=915928415&hash=item2f0459aa41:g:9LYAAOSwmOJZ-wBi

....I contacted the UK Seller via eBay, who CONFIRMED (in less than 10 minutes):



eBay

New message from: sewing-machine-sales (25,104TurquoiseShooting Star)

As described it will fit the MC15000, This binder will fit Janome Models which have the "Easy set Bobbin" which the MC15000 has.






2.  UPDATE regarding the difference/discrepancy in Part Numbers:

- shown on the Janome website (202211008), the PN
- shown at the eBay link I posted (202211008), and the PN
- shown on the 9mm 'page' in "FootBook" (202101004) and the PN being
- shown/sold on websites such as Ken's Sewing Center and others (202101004)

After much research, trying to understand the two (2) separate part numbers, THIS link:

http://www.poconosewandvac.com/?e=product&productId=19969&itemcategory=65882&ppId=19624&ptypeId=1164

....'seems' to 'clarify' the PN difference/discrepancy because it:
- shows 202211008 as being THE PN, as indicated for the MC 15000 on the Janome website, and
- shows 202101004 as being an ALTERNATE PN

Please note that:
- the Janome website DOES NOT list the MC 12000 on the Quilt Binder Set (PN 202211008) web page (list copied below or see the Janome website itself), and
- the Janome MC 12000 Product web page lists the Quilt Binder Set among the "Optional Accessories" list, and, when you click on the Quilt Binder Set link, a 'dead' website, as indicated by the "404" (page not found) error message, appears.

Please note also, that this explanation is again "for information purposes only" since I am NOT a 'Janome expert' nor do I claim to be any kind of expert...LOL. 

As always, I hope what I have written does not further confuse anyone regarding my intent in sharing the information, and, of course, I would love to know the "official" explanation as to WHY there are two (2) different PN's for what 'appears' to be the same part...LOL

Take care!

Re: 9mm Quilt Binder Set

J Fraker
 

I watched several videos, and I can see needing some practice to use this thing.  Also, of the ones I watched, joining the binding didn't look that great the way they did it.  Seems like it would be really hard to get nice looking mitered corners, too.  I don't see any way to use double fold binding, which I like to use for durability.  I've had some pretty good results using a bias binder foot.  I sew the binding to the front as usual, fold it to the back, and use the bias binder foot to stitch in the ditch on top.  The bias binder foot has an adjustable plastic flange on the back that keeps the binding in place.

For the binder attachment - if you have Jim and Diane’s 15000 APP for the iPad, or Footbook, there is an excellent tutorial there as well to show you how to use this attachment.

Check this website:

https://janomelife.wordpress.com,

This new foot called the “Taping Guide Foot” - looks rather interesting as it will sew on the seam binding (purchased or homemade) in an easy step - or so the commercial goes. I tried to buy a couple for Christmas presents from 2 local dealers and they don’t have it yet. This won’t do a quilt, if the pictures are anything to go by, but I have sewed this stuff before and this foot looks like it would be an easier task. We sometimes like to cheat a little and skip a facing and just do a seam binding instead.

Hi, Janice.  Yes, I did pin the corners.  I thought the corners were 'tricky' to accomplish, but I 'faulted' myself for being inexperienced with the set...LOL  I suppose you could also put a dab of glue instead.

I do want to try the quilt binder set on round coasters, etc. I have not rounded corners on any of my quilts, but it might work really well like that, and no need to miter the corners.

Congratulations on getting your 12000.  I am sure you will love it, and what it can do.

Re: Janome 9mm Quilt Binder Set

Cat,
When I mentioned to my dealer that I was interested in buying the binder for the 15000 he didn't sell it to me but told me that the next time I make an appointment to come in (I live almost 3 hours away) to let him know in advance that I want the binder and he'll have the shop's expert teach me how to use it.  He says it's easy once you know the tricks and so I'm hoping that I can learn and get it this spring.  It's been on my list for a while and it's good to know that it can work well and be a time saver.  My hands no longer appreciate sewing on bindings which I did for the first several quilts I made. Also as I'm unlikely to ever enter a show (this will NEVER happen), why do this?  I did find that if you make a binding with a contrasting piping, you can successfully do the whole thing by machine, and I've gotten great results sewing the binding to the back and using the serpentine stitch on the front. 
Thank you  for sharing this.

Re: Janome 9mm Quilt Binder Set

I have the 7mm Janome Quilt Binder set and I have used it on my 11000.  I have not purchased the 9mm set for my 15000 because I have the 7mm and the 11000, too, and the 9mm is quite a pricey unit if you don't really need one that is only 2mm wider...unless it is a gift...LOL

I used the quilt binder set on a flannel quilt with poly batting and 2-1/2" flannel binding.  It worked really well in test and through the first part of the binding.  Flannel being quite soft and stretchy, despite having been sprayed/ironed until pretty stiff with sizing/starch, was probably not the best binding to use with the set, and the poly batting with the flannel was not the best combination either due to the thickness of the batting, and softness/stretchiness of the flannel.  I had enough trouble with it, though, that I bound the second flannel quilt the 'normal' way, and even hand stitched the binding, finishing just hours before having to leave to attend the baby shower.

At the time, I guessed that it was my combination that resulted in the thicknesses needing 'help' to ride under the presser foot at times.  I guessed that with thin batting and cotton fabrics, that it would work well/better but definitely practice is needed IMHO.  I swore that I would try it again with a 'regular cotton' quilt with thin batting, but I haven't been able to get back to that project.

As I said, I practiced for quite a while on a duplicate quilt sandwich sample and got the set adjusted and working nicely before I put the 'real' quilt under the presser foot, but with the larger quilt, once it started being stubborn on the feed dogs, I guessed the weight became an issue as well.  For sure, that binding will not come off though, no matter what that baby does to it over the years...LOL 

When it was working well, it was gloriously pretty and absolutely perfect, though...and, for the record, no one noticed and no one seemed to mind the irregular stitching either...except mortified me!

If you have scraps you can make sample quilt sandwiches out of, I'd say try again...make potholders, coasters, doggie pads/quilts, etc.  I do think it could be a lovely time saver for some projects, and some day, I am going to haul it back out and play some more.

Try using one of the dual feed feet with the binder. That really helps.

The knee lever that comes with the 15000 actually is the adjustable one. It allows a small amount of movement by loosening the screw at the end that attaches to the machine. It does not allow for a lot of adjustment, so the pool noodle fix is often still needed. Previous posts have also referred to the knee lift socket itself being adjusted on a different Janome model, but I don't think this is possible on the 15000 due to the way it is attached.
