I was thinking exactly the same thing as you said.  Mine shreds occasionally well above the bobbin.  Seems to be around the take-up lever.

Ditto on the nylons.

I have the same problem with shredding on my 12000.  It is not consistent but some spools seem seem worse than others.  If it shreds while embroidering  between the needle and the top of the machine, could it still have to do with the bobbin? I would like to solve this problem as there is a lot of very bad language associated with it! Don't post much but read this group every day.

What does cutwork do?

Ouch was my thought too - which is why I will be holding off for a while. 

I'm glad I held off from buying the Cutwork Kit, which is £199 in UK, as if I understand correctly it seems the cutwork function is included in V5 - though you would still need to buy the cutting needles at £45 a time.  I'm told the cutting needles last an awful long time though, especially as you don't use them that much, but again it would depend if you were using them to cut templates or just on fabric.

By holding off on the Cutwork Kit, and just buying the cutting needles when I do get V5, it sort of makes me feel better about spending the £350 since if I had bought the cutwork kit I would be £150 worse off when I do upgrade.

I too have had problems with my Floriani Thread shredding while using my 15000.  I have lowered the embroidery foot and slowed down the machine, but still experience shredding.  It seems to be worse when the machine is sewing toward the left side and slightly upward.  I have also had this problem when I am doing free motion quilting and moving the fabric toward the left and slightly upwards.  It is like it starts to shred and then the thread gets caught in the bobbin area and it makes a big mess with several threads appearing on top of the fabrics.  I can turn the fabric while doing free motion quilting and I do not have the problem.  It seems the machine just does not handle sewing toward the left very well.
I  would like a solution to this problem too.  If anyone has any suggestions, I would like to know what to do.
Thanks!

My past experience in purchasing upgrades in Canada was that they were about $500, but sometimes the dealer will negotiate, especially if you are buying something else that has a bit of a price to it. I have no information about this upgrade, just passing on what I have paid in the past.

When I am using either of the accufeed flex feet, and I need to get bulky things under the foot, I first lock out.  I then touch the lift press foot button.  Locking out lowers the feed dogs and bulky items are not being grabbed by the feed teeth.  Touching the lift foot button raises the foot to its highest point, giving you more clearance under the foot.

5th Birthday Party!

Just thought I would share a couple of photographs from yesterday.

My SE Kent Janome Club celebrated our 5th Birthday yesterday!

Photos can be found in the file named Cathy's Book.

The sewing machine cake was just amazing, all edible and enjoyed by all! Made by Gemma Burchell, Ashford.

With best wishes,

Cathy.


Filling the bobbin

Jim,


Is there a way for a technician to tweek the 15000 so I can bypass the message that the bobbin needs to be replaced?  


Thanks,

Sue


Channeling Bill and Ted, Jim says "Way, Sue!":

There are a couple of options. A technician can recalibrate the sensor to make it more accurate. This is a simple procedure that can be done in just a few minutes. You can also just turn the sensor off completely in the SET screen. See page 97 in the manual.


Problem... needing help!!

lynne.keller51@...
 

I have an 11000 and a 15000.  I am having a terrible time with both machines.  I have had the 11000 for several years and just got the 15000 in June.  I have a terrible problem with my thread shredding.  I have changed needles, thread, cleaned the bobbin area.  It happens when using the embroidery unit and regular stitching.  I don't know what to do and I need to know if anyone has any advice.  

Another issue I am having is with my one embroidery hoop for the 11000.  It has gotten a lot of use and now it will not tighten.  I have seen replacement screws for the hoop but wondered if that would fix the issue or if I need a new hoop.

Thanks for any help,

Lynne keller


Shredding his junk mail, Jim says:

Thread shredding is usual the result of the thread being exposed to rough edges. Remove the bobbin case from each machine and check for damage on top and bottom. Also check the edges of the hook race that the bobbin case rides on. Passing a nylon stocking around it will quickly find any roughness. Nicks and scratches will cause shredding and breakage. Also check the edges of the hole in the needle plate. Damage from needle strikes will often cause this problem.


The screw and nut combination used in the hoops is often a problem. The screws are very small, with fine threads that are easily stripped. We used to sell replacement sets in the store. You just emote the old screw and nut, drop the new nut in the pocket on the hoop and replace the screw.

Thanks for posting the PDF - I think the interface is growing on me and it doesn't seem so bad as when you first showed it.  I am not sure if I will be able to make Trevors webinar so I do hope he will put it on You-tube or have it available from his website for those that miss it.  The stumpwork looks interesting, and I note that cutwork and stumpwork is included - we would just have to buy the 'needles'.

AccuSetter App

Cindy
 

Is there anyway to use the Accusetter App with a 12000?

Thanks,

Cindy


Given that the AcuSetter app depends on WiFi, which the 12000 doesn't have, no.

I have the same problem. When I click on Reply to Group or Reply to Sender, it takes me to a blank web page. The only way to reply is to Reply via Web Post.

Replying via Web Post, Jim says:
Again this is an issue with your email software and/or web browser. Yahoo support will probably be able to help, but you'll need to tell them what you are using.


Re: MBX5

Does anyone have a clue as to what this upgrade will cost. I'm still a Janome newbie, and version 4 is my first program. Since my dealer included it with my purchase, I have no clue what the price range is/was. Thanks.

I have asked this question re[eatedly. I can not reply to  a message. I have to use the "NEW TOPIC" option.....How do I change this?  It has been a problem since I got this new laptop computer that has Windows 10. GA FROM OH


Unable to provide a decent answer, Jim offers this:

Since we have no information on what you are doing to reply, what browser you are using or what email program you use I through some words at Google and found this list of others with similar problems. Have you approached Yahoo support about the problem? Windows 10 uses a new browser called Edge as a replacement for Internet Explorer. Are you using that or IE? Have you tried an alternate browser like Google Chrome? You are the only person to report this problem and we're not really the best source of solution for Windows/Yahoo issues.
