Re: Cover for the 15000

Great minds eh?  I didn't take the black one apart, instead took measurements from it and made a whole new case because down the track when it comes time to sell the 15000, the black one will go with the machine.   Also I made a couple of changes and added pockets, one inside the lid to replace that velcro piece and another along the inside front where I added foldover elastic along the top edge to keep it snug.  I had a piece of zipper-by-the-metre just the right length, then added another slide running in the opposite direction so it will still open from the centre. 

The plastic counter savers that were in the kitchen had a few scratches and it was time for recycling, so they were washed in hot, soapy water and when dry I cut them to size and covered with calico quilted onto batting for the exterior, a quilting cotton for the interior, and of course, emb designs to match the machine covers. 

Kathy...it's not quite finished yet unfortunately, had several other things to do which interrupted sewing time.

So Windows is the problem with the WiFi connection to the computer - do I have that right??? My iPad works just fine and always has, but my computer which is also an Apple MacBook, doesn’t connect. I nearly drove myself “bonkers” trying to get the two to play nice and they NEVER did, so I just said, “The USB works, so that’s what I’ll use”. I was fine with that and will continue to be. I wonder if the new Contintenal M17will “play nice”. I’ll just have to wait and see.

It is a good thing we have several ways to connect to our machines, but it sure can be frustrating when trying to follow directions in the 15000 Workbook when instructions don’t work.

Hello Betty, You don't have to have an Ipad to transfer deigns as it can be done with Windows, also. When you transfer wirelessly to the machine from MBX5.5 it goes through Horizon Link Suite (HLS), that is why the wireless icon says LINK in MBX. It then opens up in HLS & then you have to check if the machine & computer are connected. In HLS go to the top left hand corner & click on the circle, a menu will drop down & click Connection Settings. A new box will come up & click on the word Search. The computer will search for your machine & what you had named it. When the name comes up, click on it then click on OK. They should then be connected & you can send the design to the machine. I have an older laptop so when I t log out of thecomputer I then have to often do the Connection setting again. Its a pain, but so nice to send by WiFi.
BUT... if you have not connected the machine & computer for over a year you may have to re-enter your WiFi password into the machine. You have to do this in SETTINGS on the machine. All these instructions are in your manual & easier to go there than for me to type them in.

Horizon Link Suite (HLS) can transfer designs from Windows PCs to 15000 machines by WiFi when set to transfer wirelessly and the 15000 is in embroidery mode.

I have not been using my MC15000 for about a year due to various things happening in my life. Today I decided I need to get back to my sewing. The problem is I cannot send a design from the computer to the machine (using wifi and MBX 5.5). The machine is connected to the wifi network. There is a wifi icon on the machine and it also shows as connected in the Hub Manager. So what am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help!

It’s normally recommended to use 2GB but I have used a 4GB and an 8, but if it’s too big it slows the reading down.  Just put the USB into the machine and it will automatically format.  It places 2 folders emb and EMBF inside the emb.  You can put folders in both.

I stopped using wifi with my machine when I got my sewing room upstairs, my PC and router were too far apart.  I also found that my machine uses too much wifi.  We had to take everything off the wifi when I wanted to transfer to the machine, even with the iPad.  My PC is downstairs, not enough room in my sewing room, so I just use USB, but occasionally I use the iPad if I’ve got the design unzipped in Dropbox and can transfer to the apps, and then the machine.  Plus running up and downstairs is exercise for me too 😂

Lyn, I was able to transfer from computer to machine using wifi and MBX 5.5 when I last used it last year. I never had any problems doing it. That's why I don't understand why this problem has arisen. I've transferred wirelessly with all the versions of MBX and never used cable or flash drive. The wifi feature is one of the features I love about my 15000.

Re: so WHERE is the 15000

John Deer with Embroidery Legacy will periodically run a sale on Hatch (probably generated by Wilcom) and there is a payment program. I'm not sure if that is all the time. I love Hatch! I had Digitizer 10000 when I started and upgraded to MBX vs4. When Janome said they were not going to support MBX and Wilcom was given the opportunity to offer MBX users Hatch, I got it. It is very easy and very much like MBX so not hard to get used to. Also, the upgrade from vs1 to vs2 was under $200. All of my upgrades for Digitizer/MBX were $699 each.

Betty I am sure I have used MBX to send wireless to my machine, it may have been V5, it definitely doesn’t  from V5.5 I’ve just tried it and I get a message to connect by cable or USB device.  But I am sure I have done it from my laptop, but I had V5 on it.  I didn’t get 5.5 until after I bought my PC.  It doesn’t with Hatch2 either.  It does send from the ipad and Acudesign, I did use it the other day.

I don't understand your comments because I have always been able to send designs wirelessly using MBX digitising software and my laptop. I just don't understand why I cannot do it now.

Your design has to be on an IPad to send to your 15000. It also has to be in one of the apps that we were given when we purchased our machine. Our machine is wifi available but not computer friendly if your computer is a windows operating system.

Hi Vivienne,

Do you mean the sale of the software from the April trial? It is selling on sale in Canada for $899.00 which should be close to what it would cost in Australia, but I don’t know the exchange rate from AU to CA dollars. I know that it takes about $1.30 Canadian to buy $1.00 US.

However, where Artistic Digitizer JR. is offered is with the new Janome Continental M17 - I already have Artistic Digitizer that I bought a couple of years ago on at the trial they had back then, so I will have a copy that will be of no use to me when I get my new machine. I have a friend that might be interested so I don’t think I’ll have a problem getting rid of it and I have a daughter also that I could give it to IF I can’t sell it.

I will say that it isn’t the old Digitizer that Janome had, but I must say it is starting to grow on me. Maybe in my “better years”, I’m more adaptable to using those automatic functions and saving some time in actually tracing with clicks of my mouse around artwork.

I suggest that you give a few dealers a call to see what Artistic Digitizer is really on sale. Sometimes a dealer will try to sell you something they have “in stock” rather than to order you what YOU want.

My machines also have beautiful covers that I made. The only time those black things come out of their hidey-hole is when they travel.
