Re: New Member looking for the just right new machine

Welcome!!!

I had the 15000 before the M7 came out, and I don't have the M7.  The M7 has a larger harp space, but I quilt just fine on my 15000, both on the bed of the machine and in the hoop.  I am actually about to put two quilts ITH now, having quilted some straight lines on them already.  If you get a chance, it might be a good idea to see the M7 in person.  It's a fine machine...not a lot of advantage for me, since a long arm quilter lives here, too.

Hello Janome Fans !

I've signed up for this list because I am a boomer dinosaur who still
like email lists.

I am a vintage sewing machine lover, and have some of the best: a
Bernina classic 830 and 530, a Necchi Supernova BU, Singer 401A, and
classic Pfaff 18.

I am thinking I might buy a new computerized machine. I'm impressed with
all that I read about the M7.  I do wonder if it is too much of a
machine for me.  I once had my eyes on the 6600 way back, but would like
more harp space to free motion quilt. Decorative stitches would be fun,
but not too interested in embroidery.

I look forward to learning all about your machines and how they work for
you,

Sue R

I don't know if someone has mentioned this as I don't have time to read through all the comments.  But Janome does have a free trial of Artistic Digitizer at least once a year.  That is how I got started with the software.  Ask your dealer about this and/or look on the Facebook Artistic Digitizer group for info.  That would be a way for you to compare and try out AD to see if it is worth buying in your case.

All messages posted on this list have the email addresses obscured. This is partly to protect privacy, and partly to prevent spread of spam and malware. When posting an email that you want others to respond to, you have to change it slightly to trick the website. If your email address is "me @ mysite.com" you would write it as "me @ mysite.com". The trick is to put a space on each side of the @. That keeps the list code from detecting it as an email address.

Lorrie,
All you need to do is click on my email and it should open a new message to send to me with the address already in place... if that doesn't work then copy and paste my email into a new message.

Good to know it - at least to some extend - fixed your issue, unfortunately Apple doesn't provide any way to enforce a specific preview provider.

FYI, the situation on macOS is quite similar, and bug reports I (and other developers) raised were never addressed.

Take care, Mattes

Re: iPad stitch file display

Pixey
 

Thanks all.

My iPad does have the most recent update.

I tried offloading StitchBuddy and then reactivating it and did not see any change when I want to my files view.  So since I do have Stitchbuddy backed up in iCloud, I tried the uninstall, reinstall option.  Initially, I did did not see any change.  But when I actually tapped on the design, it now goes to the StitchBuddy display view rather than opening in AcuEdit (which is what it was doing yesterday).  So sort of a fix, even though I now have to actually tap on the individual design to see it.  

Next time I use AcuEdit to send to the machine, I will try the ‘tap to view’ option after the Offload step.

My Babylock had the directional stitching. It went backwards,  diagonally forward & backwards etc. I rarely ever used it because it was rather clunky as it fed. Definitely not worth buying a machine for it.
Do you know that our Janome 15k’s have backward directional for straight and zigzag? They do! Look at Utility Stitch  #s 26 & 27!
Also make use of the wonderful HP foot and plate if you’re not already, it’s super!

It could be they’ve got behind because other brands have the patent on the technology.  I rather like the idea directional stitching of Brother sewing machines, never had the chance to try it, but who knows perhaps I will on day.

My first sewing /embroidery machine was the top of line Babylock machine. At the time I purchased it I paid over $7k for it. This was about 20 years ago.
As many of you know, Babylock & Brother are made by the same company, much like Janome & Elna are.
The Babylock machine had to be rebuilt 2 times at my own expense. The machine wasn't nearly as sturdy, nor was the stitch quality in sewing nor embroidery nearly what we have with our Janome 15k.
Just my real experience!
Now, about the fact that Janome hangs way back when it comes to technology and bells & whistles is true, unfortunately.
I too wish they would step up their game when it comes to some of the very interesting functions that other top of the line machines have.
But I seriously doubt that they will.
Even with that, I'm very pleased with the quality of my machines, it's a better built, better running machine than many others.

Re: Janome 15,000 vs M7

atheodossis@...
 

Hi, I Would stay away from Brother. Brother machines are not durable. I spend good money years ago on a Dreamweaver, and the machine never worked right. The stitch and embroidery quality when compared with the Janome is not even near. Also, if you have noticed, Brother comes out with new models almost every year. Personally, I am old school, I want the machine to have quality outcome. I have been a Bernina and Janome user for 20 years, and between the 2 brands, I would never touch anything else. Pfaff is just a sad story now, Viking is basically a Singer, since they got bought out, and Brother and Babylock are just plastic, and they even have plastic gears. Juki's are not that good either. I have a Janome 14000; Janome M7; Bernina 790 Plus, and the Bernina L890 serger/top stitch combo. In my book these machines are the best you can have, no need to look around. Those of you that want to use the HP Plate & Ruler Work the M7 has you covered. You can use the 14000 for embroidery. The M7 is hands down the very best sewing machine I have ever used, and is actually better than an industrial, and much much better value since it can be a straight stitch and a zig zag machine at the same time, and it only takes seconds to switch. In US you can get a 14000 for $7K. In my mind the additional $4K for the 15000 do not worth the trouble, especially if you get an M7. If you look around you can probably snatch an M7 for around $5K right now, you just need to go to multiple places.

I received the same message on my 12000, the message is a code for those who repair the machine. If memory serves me correctly, it involves a step motor. Google Janome error codes. Good Luck!

Re: iPad stitch file display

Mattes
 

Jim, as always you've covered the topic - and highlighted the main issue - perfectly:

Apple does not give you the ability to specify which app will have the privilege of being the icon provider. 
The only way I know to tweak iOS using a specific app for icon previews is its reinstallation.

Pixey, there are two options, and I suggest to start with the first one to minimize the risk of data loss. Because as Jim stated, deleting an app will also remove its local data (but NOT its iCloud files):

(1.) There is an option to delete an app without erasing local data: Apple calls it "Offloading" and its main purpose is reclaiming storage allocated by seldom used apps: By offloading you can delete the app to have temporarily more storage, and reinstall it later without loosing any data. So I suggest to offload StitchBuddy HD and reinstall it ... hopefully restoring its icon previews. Offloading is an option in the iOS settings under "General" - "iPhone Storage" after selecting StitchBuddy HD.

(2.) If offloading and reinstalling StitchBuddy HD doesn't fix your issue, deleting the app is the next option, but ONLY if you're using StitchBuddy with iCloud synching, so your files are saved in the cloud and will reappear once you have reinstalled the app and activated synching. Nevertheless this is a sensible fix and ever user error might cause DATA LOSS. So please be careful, use it only if step #1 failed and be sure - as always - to have a proper backup of your data.

The every last ressort (and most reliable fix) is of course removing the conflicting app, e.g. AcuEdit ... but I'm pretty sure it doesn't meet your expectations, so I don't consider it a solution. Feel free to contact me via StitchBuddy's support mail, if you have further questions or need some assistence.

Greetings, Matthias
