I have traded in my 12K for the QuiltMaker 15K.  I have 2 items for sale that I do not need for the new machine:

1  SD foot (not included is the foot holder).  $20.00
2.  Superior Single Thread Stand (unused, new in package).  Am selling because I have the 5 thread stand.  - $18.00

Please email me at CaroleinCO@gmail. com if interested.

Thank you Jim for allowing us to use this site to advertise items for sale.

I am regrettably getting ready to move and will be selling my 15000 , along with others. My husband is Stage 6 Alzheimer’s disease.
My machine is upgraded to the latest version.  It has very few hours. If you want to talk with me, contact me at (sewnqlt21842@...) I guarantee you, you would be very happy with the price. 
Just let me know.

Carol: The quilt I did in the Photos section called Acufil Quilting Project was showing how I set up the Acufil on my 12000 and was done back in 2014. I think when Jim transferred the files over to this site, it updated the dates to 2018. I can't remember where I got the pattern from to do that edge to edge since it was so long ago.
 
If your interested in doing this type of design, ie single run or no backstitching, I buy patterns now from a site called My Creative Stitches. which is a mom and daughter business.Great people to work with.
They do long arm type design but if you send them a note and tell them what machine you have and if they could convert a particular design on their site to jef format along with  what size of hoop you want to work in. You may have to make size adjustments but it works great for me. 
I'm working on one now that I got called Star Edge To Edge using monofilament thread top and bottom on my machine.  They have many designs and run sales quite often.
Hope that helps.

Photo album

Carole O'Mara
 

I looked at the photo album for the firs time and am so impressed with the quilting and embroidery you ladies do.  There are 2 photos that I am interested in.  They were posted 1/04/18--last year.  

1.  Acufil Quilting Project 2.  The embroidery design is called Sea Swirl 3MM.  If you used this design, can you tell me where you purchased it as I'd like to purchase the design.  I find it difficult to find single run designs on the web.

2.  A quilt called Cold Spell.  Can you tell me the name of the pattern for the quilt and also where you purchased the embroidery design?  I'd like to make the quilt and use Acufil to embroider it.

All you ladies are an inspiration.  I love our group and learn so much from you.

Thanks,
Carole - Colorado


Re: Question

Some thoughts.  My dealer gave me $4000 for my 12000, plus the extra accessories that I had bought.  Since I did a trade in, the cost of the 15K was $12,000 (MSRP)  was based on the $12,000.  If I had bought it w/o trade in cost would be $10,000.  Big difference.  We have an eBay store here where they will advertise on eBay, do the packing/shipping which would be paid by buyer.  Then, store owner takes his share, eBay takes theirs and you get something less than the advertised selling price.  It was easier for me to trade in.

So, since the MSRP is @ $12,000, with my trade in of $4,000, cost was $8,000.  Be sure to do the numbers before you commit.  

Good luck.
Carole





Re: Question

juliadlf.ny@...
 

Linda: I was in the same thought process you are going through. I started a year ago by researching the differences in the machine on the Janome site, then
reading posts on this forum as well as Facebook from those who bought the 15000. Many of what has already been mentioned is why I upgraded.

The one problem that consistently cropped up from owners with the 15000 was the automatic needle threader. Was it user error or a real problem with the machine? I do know that in order for the automatic needle threader to work on the Quiltmaker 15000, you have to lock the machine otherwise the button that you push on the machine will not light up nor work. A good reminder feature. However, I did run into an issue with the threader after doing 8 embroidery blocks where I had to change threads multiple times to different colors.  I took the machine into the dealer and they fixed it with a new one and not a problem since.  The second issue I see a lot of complaints is the WiFi. I have had no issue.

I went with the latest machine release (Quiltmaker 15000) out of the box in May 2018 because I do a lot of various projects and many of the features I would use plus I didn't have to constantly do or buy "add-ons". The only add on  I'm keeping from my 12000 is the RE18 Hoop which I purchased everything else is included in the new machine. 
The larger screen and ease of moving through functions is different from the 12000. BUT, the 15000 and 12000 stitch quality is exactly the same.  I will never use all the stitches you could do on either of these machines. The manual threader on the 12000 worked perfect for me. I loved my 12000 and had it a very long time and it took a lot of back and forth over a year to finally decide it was time to change.

Neither machine is cheap so choose wisely and those "Janome Specials" run several times a year with different offers so don't feel pressured.
Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

Re: Question

I bought my 15000 during a Janome event at my Dealer. So it was a lower price, extra thread packages, extra trade in amount, and I know it’s different each promo. They also had 0% financing. So if you can catch one of those you might get a better combination deal. 


Re: Question

A lot of dealers give you little to nothing for a trade in.  Your expectations of what you would get for your 12000 as a trade in might be a stretch.

Thank you for that information.  It helps.  They said I could get the 15000, for just under $10,000, but that did not
include my trade in, of the 12000.  What do you think  a trade in, amount would be?  And is the cost of the
1500, seem reasonable?  I am thinking with the trade in, I could get the 15000 for about $3,00 or $4,000.
Are my thoughts out of line? Or what do you think?

I froze our credit accounts at all the agencies when Experian got hacked. We're at the point in life where we use credit very seldom and it seemed the prudent thing to do.

For those of you who had your identity stolen, did you have a credit report freeze on your accounts?  Jim, is this something you recommend?

It is possible with today's technology to make the caller ID of a phone call appear to be anything you want. This opens the door for endless streams of miscreants trying to separate you from your personal information and money. If there really were a breach Apple is not going to personally call every one of their customers! They would likely use email, though that can be spoofed as well. If you get a call from Apple, Microsoft, or any company that you are doing business with DO NOT give out any information. Instead log into the website by typing in the address, NOT by clicking an email link. If there really is a problem you will know.

There is so much stuff going on you would think someone would do something. What I was told was that it cost too much to go after them, so the companies and just write it off, no one cares about the poor person who got ripped off. I did learn to turn my computer off at night when not using it and they can't get in there.

I think if they wanted to they could of caught them. Either when they went to cash the gift certificates which there would of been no way they knew they got voided, or Comcast getting the mail they forwarded to themselves and then deleted my mail that Target sent. No one cares because they say it's not real big business and they just write it off. In my case they didn't need to write anything off, and I cancelled the gift card before they tried to cash them, emptied my bank account and closed my credit card. It would of been so easy to catch them.

I was so annoyed by frequent calls from "Microsoft Security" and Air duct cleaning and the like, that I took a different approach.  As soon as the caller start giving their line, I ask them how they can go to sleep at night knowing they have scammed poor seniors?  I ask them how they would like their poor old grannie bothered in this way and so on.  I usually don't get into a second sentence before the scammer hangs up.  I now look forward to these calls which are coming fewer and fewer!

We use caller ID.  If we do not recognize the number, we do not answer & let answering machine get it.  After 3 rings they hang up.  This saves a lot of aggravation & time.

My phone provider does not offer good call blocking to my land line so I get a lot of robocalls and unwanted calls.  But, I can block numbers on my iPhone.  When I am out for the day and hubby is not home either I use call forwarding to forward calls to my home to my iPhone.   When a call comes to the house, it forwards to my iPhone.  If I don’t recognize the number I don’t answer and if they don’t leave a voice mail, I block the number.  When I get home I disconnect from call forward and calls then can come to the house.  You can still make outgoing calls from the home phone even if Call Forward is on.  This has worked and has stopped a lot of calls to the house.  But they do call from different numbers so it’s never ending, but does slow things down.
