It will work, but it won't attach to the bracket with the cutter on it. As long as you don't mind using the button to cut threads you should be fine.

If you are trying to preserve the maximum fabric size, since you only have one yard of it, you could do a 'mock serged edge' (not an official term...just my description) using the "Overedge Foot" (M, for the Janome 15000). 

https://www.janome.com/accessories/sewing-machine-feet/overedge-foot/

To mask the raw edge, you could use narrow ribbon...you could use a bit of glue stick to keep it in place for sewing.  You could add wider ribbon (lace, twill tape, etc.) and zigzag on the center of the ribbon with the ribbon placed with its center along the raw edge.  Again, you could use glue...or pins/clips...so it doesn't move. You could also do a 'scallop edge' if you have the stitch on your machine, or a 'rolled hem' if you have a foot for that. 

You can practice on some other scrap of fabric, and check out how the stitching looks on your real fabric after you've stitched an inch or so...in case you need to 'unsew' it for some other option.

I have a beautiful piece of 2 sided slate blue musliny type fabric I’d like to use as a receiving blanket/nursing cover.
Any suggestions for a way to finish the raw edge?
It’s light weight and one sided, not sheer. I only have a yard so don’t really have any extra to practice with. Help??

There is a foot pedal on sale on Amazon for the Janome 12000.would this work on my 15000? It take a long time for my dealer to get supplies from Janome.

Foot pedal Janome 15000

Helene B
 


I have a Janome 15000. Recently when I am sewing a picture of the foot petal comes up on the screen with a warning message and the machine stops. I prefer to use the foot petal to stop and start my machine. When this started I removed the little gizmo on the foot petal that cuts thread because I never use to see if that helps but it continues. When this happens I briefly disengage the foot petal from the machine then engage it again and the machine works again for a few minutes before it stops again with the same warning. Is this something I should be concerned about? It is very annoying.


Re: suggested stitch?

Joyce----Do you know how to do a binding?  Like on the edge of a quilt. It could be made from a separate piece of fabric that coordinates with your muslin fabric. Don't be put off if you don't feel you could do the mitered corners that are traditional. There is another way to bind a quilt that I have adopted that does not require mitering the corners. There is a very good video on You Tube that explains this super easy method.  Here is the link to the video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJFiiACpKRA&t=358s
Good luck!

Re: RE18 Hoop

Lyn Quine
 

Just had a look on the Janome website, try this link, it says that it is compatible.  If it’s like the 15000 the RE18 hoop is on the second page of hoops at the bottom.

 https://www.janome.com/accessories/hoops/re18-hoop/i


Re: RE18 Hoop

Jim Stutsman
 

I think your dealer's interpretation of "compatible" is that the RE18 can be physically attached to your machine. The software in the machine will not recognize it as such, and there is no update that I could find that would allow it to. Attempting to install the 15000 update should not work, and trying to use it could conceivable brick your machine. Your only option is to tell the machine you are using the SQ23 hoop, attach the RE18, and use the editing function to make absolutely certain that the design is centered and is not wider than 140mm (5 1/2") or longer than 180mm (7"). As long as you do that it should work but if you don't have the design centered in what the machine believes to be the SQ23 hoop, you might hit the hoop. That would damage the hoop, and perhaps the machine.


RE18 Hoop

Moira Rogow
 

I own an Elna 920, which is the same as the MC14000. I bought the RE18 hoop package because the hoop was no longer available by itself. My dealer said it is compatible with my Elna 920. In the package however, if you have version 1 you need to download instructions from Janome for the system update. I've tried to get info from both Elna and Janome, but it just seems to fall into a black hole somewhere.  Can I download the instructions for the MC15000 for my Elna 920? Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

Re: Footbook App

Jim Stutsman
 
Edited

What's happening is that the control has been disabled. However the app NEVER disables it. I can't think of any way it could be disabled, other than a failure of a memory bit in the hardware. Try deleting the app entirely (Hold down on the app until it shakes, choose "Delete". Then download it again from the App Store. You won't be charged again. Instead of a price you'll see a cloud with an arrow coming out of it. Tap that to reinstall. Then try it again. If everything works correctly it's probably a sign of a memory failure within the device. That may cause unexpected behavior down the road. If your device is still within warranty you might take it to an Apple Store and ask to have diagnostics run on it. If a failure is detected they should replace it. If it's out of warranty you can still do that, but they won't replace it if a problem is found. It may also be that a memory cell has changed from 1 to 0. This is VERY rare, but can happen from something as nebulous as cosmic rays. In that case downloading again will fix it and life will go on.

For any further problems, or deeper research on this one, please use our Support Form to request help, as this list is not the right forum for app issues.


Footbook App

JaneMahaffey@...
 

Hello,  I would so appreciate any help with my footbook app.  I have all of the apps downloaded on my apple ipad.   
            When i select a foot to learn about the bar underneath the picture is grayed out.  It will not allow me to 
             select  one of three items. #1- I have it, #2 Neither, #3 Wish List.  I press on my selection but nothing happens.
              I realize the star and heart have nothing to do with it.  My girlfriend has the same app and hers is lit up and
              she is able to select the appropriate one.   I am of course trying to put in all of the various feet I own.  I
               hope that you can understand what i am trying to ask.  Thank you for your patience.  Most Sincerely, Jane

Maybe also kind of hard to say they left buyers out since Janome included an iPad with purchase of the 15000...my 15000 included a “Janome” branded iPad Air in the box. 😁

Re: Janome HD Roller Foot for Janome 7mm and 9mm High Shank Machines

Hi Kathy,

I never had one but looking at it, I would have my doubts that the Rotary Even Feed foot would work better than the Acufeed Flex systems, especially when dealing with lots of layers or thicknesses.  Part of the reason I have kept my 6600 was that I like some aspects of it’s Acufeed system better than the AcuFeed Flex system that Janome went to for the 12000 and forward.  However, it is less convenient to switch the different Acufeed feet on the 6600 and there is not a narrow Acufeed option (like the Acufeed Flex offers).

That said, I have used my Acufeed Flex system on my S9 at some pre-pandemic workshops and find that usually it does work ok.  The main thing I have learned is that it is not great at climbing over lumps (which can cause the walking mechanism to pop out at the back).  So I don’t try to start it off the leading edge of my project and when I get to noticeable changes in thickness, I ease it over these slowly.  I have also found that backing off the foot tension can put less stress on it.  Finally, I learned not to expect the same type of grip and tracking from the narrow AcuFeed Flex foot that you get from the wider AcuFeed Flex foot with the double grip points (which does make sense if you look at how it is made and the amount of contact surface area for pulling the fabric).

Others on the group may have tips as well on how to get the best performance from the Acufeed Flex system.

Pixey/Favy---You are correct, that is not the foot I was thinking about. The Rotary Even Foot is what I was thinking; it has two rows of flexible "tractor treads" that assist in going over thick seams and pull the fabric from the top layer. I think it might be helpful when making bags and purses and such, but looks like I will never know. In my opinion, the AccuFeed is not all it's cracked up to be.

I think the foot you might be calling the tractor treads one was made for the 7mm machines and was called the Rotary Even Feed foot.  There does not appear to be an equivalent to it listed in the S7 Optional Accessories.

Re: Janome HD Roller Foot for Janome 7mm and 9mm High Shank Machines

Pixey is correct, and the Stutsmans can verify if needed.
If you have an ankle for 7mm feet, yes you can use the 7mm feet on your 9mm machine.
However, be aware that the feed dogs don't line up with the foot as well as they do with feet designed for them.
I've always thought it unfortunate that Janome never made the Rotary foot set for the 9mm machines.
It was a really nice and useful attachment, but in my opinion it didn't have the strength that our Acu-Flex system has. 
And Kathy, why don't you like the Acu-feed system? I know it has it quirks but there's nothing like it when dealing with layers of fabrics and heavy sewing applications.
So much better than our old chunky walking feet...
