I think this is what you are looking for: https://www.janome.co.jp/e/e_downloads/pdf/janomebulletin/JTM-1066_New_Ruler_foot_R2.pdf
I'll update FootBook when I get a chance. Right now I'm close to wrapping up ThreadBook 2, and it's got my full attention.


Attn. Jim: Ruler foot compatibility across machines

Roberta K
 

Hi Jim,

I am trying to find a part number for a ruler foot that would fit on the Janome 6600p. I looked in the foot book but I did not find it. Please help.

Thanks in advance,
Roberta

Hi Roberta, the ruler foot is a foot that is usually a screw on, used with the feed dos down, so a free motion foot, it is a circle about 1/2”  across, deep sides, you have acrylic rulers and you guide the fabric under the foot whilst guiding the foot along the ruler.  The depth of the foot and the thickness of the ruler prevent the foot riding over the ruler.  The foot itself is good for free motion actually.

Lyn, or anyone who can tell me—What is the ruler attachment? Is that a foot or something else?

It worked.  I did not select View Embroidery then View.  I have started a binder with tabs of all these helpful hints that are passed along through this forum.  
Thanks again for all you do.

For the benefit of those following along at home, I'll recap what I think you've done:
1. Open HorizonLink Suite. Then choose EmbLink Tool. Finally choose Editing Embroidery Designs.
2. Open the design. Edit as needed.
3. Tap the View tab. Embroidery Simulator is grayed out (disabled).

This may be a bug of some sort, or just a documentation failure. If you click the Home tab, then View Embroidery, and then click the View  tab, the simulator should work.

I have downloaded a purchased design onto my computer.   I have edited the design and opened VIEW.   How do I engage the 'embroidery simulator'?  I recently purchased the 15000 App--thank you very much Jim and Diane.  I've followed Diane's instructions but the  embroidery simulator icon is grayed out.  Thank you.

Thanks Cheryl. I actually don’t have the FMQ set for my 15000 because I found I did not use it on my 6600. Like you I was a foot collector with my 6600. But I kept mine and still use it regularly.

There is a difference between the 6600 FMQ set and the 9mm (15000/S9) FMQ set. The 6600 FMQ mounting bracket comes in at a downward slant to clear the Acufeed mechanism in the back. The 9mm FMQ set has a straight mounting bracket. I will play around with my 6600 for the ruler work and see how it feels. Worst case scenario, I will decide to take my 15000.

However, because of the even feet gadget on the back of the 6600, I would check to see if the ruler feet will work. That might be a problem, but I don’t know as I gave my 6600 to my daughter in law and her family. I have all those feet and will probably NEVER use them - I say probably because they tell m to Never say NEVER!

Thanks Virginia, I have looked on the website for answers but they only seem to mention EQ8 and not the older 7. I hoped someone here would perhaps be still using 7.

Hoping someone could tell me if they have successfully loaded EQ 7 program with the new windows 11? I don’t want to upgrade to W11 if it’s not compatible with my older version of EQ……I know there is a later version, EQ8 but for the amount I use it I don’t want to have to buy that. I know when I upgraded to Windows 10 I had all sorts of problems with various programs (but not EQ), now I’m a bit wary of these updates.
Many thanks

Re: Ruler foot compatibility across machines

Hi Roberta,

I was told by the Janome Educator at a combo Janome/Westalee event at my local store that the 6600P uses the combination set of the Convertible Free Motion Quilting Foot Set (part no. 202-001-003) and the Free Motion Frame Quilting Feet Set for 1600P (part no. 767-434-005).  I already had the Convertible Free Motion Quilting Foot Set from when I less successfully tried Free Motion some time back.  And I found the foot set through Ken’s Sewing Center (who verified that it was the correct foot).

I actually have not used it but am thinking that I am going to give it a try for the Ruler Work Bee because I already have an extension table for the 6600P but not for the S9.  Obviously the disadvantage is having to do all the settings (tension, feed dogs, etc.) manually instead of being able to use the app like I do on my 15000.

I ordered the 767434005: Optional foot set for attachment to 7mm convertible free motion foot QB-H (#202001003).  If you have Jim’s amazing foot book app you can get more info there.  The foot book app is a very good resource for all Janome models.  I’ve found it invaluable.

Re: Updating Windows 7 to Windows 10

I had the same issue with Embird.  I managed to get it working correctly by clearing the thumbnail cache and resetting the iconizer settings in Embird, I needed to reselect all the types of files I wanted to see.  I found a number of article regarding thumbnails not showing in windows 10 using google, so if clearing the cache doesn’t work for you one of the other ideas might work.


Re: Needle plate problems

Jim Stutsman
 

Look at the both the straight stitch and zigzag plates from the bottom. At a retreat, with lots of machines around, maybe it got mixed up with someone else's plate for a different model. Also make sure that tabs on the left end of the plate are not bent. There is a little metal block on the bottom the triggers a sensor on the machine. It should be in the same place and in the same position on both plates. If all else fails, you can embroider with the zigzag plate. It's OK to do that.


Needle plate problems

Renee Wojnowski
 


I’m at a retreat, with my S9.  We’re doing embroidery. The straight stitch needle plate will not snap into place. Other people tried to snap it in as well. The zigzag needle plate snaps no problem. 

The hp plate had been on prior to this. I did turn the machine off and on, and I tried attaching with the embroidery module attached and no attached. 

Renee

I had a similar problem with my 15000, ended up buying a new stitch plate.

Oh, Cat! Those experiences truly are nightmares--in every since of the word! I have empathy for you and Kathy.

Kathy, so sorry!!!  I don’t use Embird but I appreciate you sharing this experience. Upgrades can be nightmarish!  I mean that in a generic sense, unrelated to Embird, and as an IT professional of over 30 years prior to retirement (and a hobby prior to working in the field), I have stumbled through the gravel of that particular road many times…so many times that I refuse to allow auto updates on MY computers for a lot of years now…which explains why I never took my “free upgrade” to Win10.  Even the “prep” routines for discovering IF your software/computer could ‘handle’ a Windows upgrade weren’t completely able to do so. 

Just now, while working in Hatch v.2, I made one minor change and things went wonky across my whole design. Not the first time things have gone wonky, but the previous time, Hatch techs couldn’t figure it out and said they couldn’t replicate the problem. The only change I made then was add a single node to ever so slightly modify a tiny part of an ITH quilting design I digitized, and that caused Hatch to create thousands of extra nodes throughout the design. I had to completely redigitize the design!!!   I had not upgraded anything but had installed other software, a process which can ‘upgrade’ dll files that may affect the entire system including, possibly, Hatch. 

Regarding upgrades, to further  illustrate, I used a version of Quicken (checkbook software), which I liked, for many years. It worked in OS/2 and Windows, so was perfect for me since I had several operating systems (on various machines) in my home network. Then my Windows XP laptop and OS/2 machines died and my new (current) laptop came with Win8.1 and my version of Quicken wouldn’t install. So I purchased the current rev…this was in 2015…and it couldn’t read my Quicken files!!!!  Their ‘fix was to download a ‘free’ Quicken version to convert my files to the current version could open them…but the download was a UK version…which isn’t ‘the same as’ a ‘USA’ version…and schmucked up the files requiring me to fix all those records…something I had no time for when I was working !!!  I have never been able to recover my home banking records, print my own checks, balance my account (on computer…easily), print reports, do searches, etc. 

I hope you get it resolved!!!
