Viola, Southport must be getting really fed up now (good) because I’ve contacted them before Christmas and they claimed they didn’t know about it. I even contacted Japan, they ignored me!   Then I found out on here it’s on sale in Norway, contacted them they contacted Japan who said it will be on sale in the UK and should be by now.  I’ve sent a very moany email to Southport, and I know others have complained too and I’ve put a review on their Fb page, complaining they treat their customers like mushrooms, keep them in the dark and feed them on sh.t!  I’m not going to hold my breath, I think it will be a while yet.  I might even see if I can get it from the states by devious means......  a friend of a friend who lives there!


Re: Question about older machines

I purchased a used 6500 quilter about 6 years ago. It has run like a trooper every time I use it. And I use it a lot. I have a small cottage business and this machine is very reliable.

I have a friend who I was talking sewing with.  She has some basic sewing projects she wants to do, curtains, pillows, basic mending, etc. However, her ‘preferred’ machine (which is no longer available) was actually her grandmother’s treadle machine  because she could control the speed and sew very slowly.  I gather she had a bad runaway machine incident with an economy modern machine that left here afraid of the machine.  I showed her the speed control on my 6600P and she lit up with hope.  Unfortunately, her budget is more in the $300-$500 range.  We discussed the possibility of a retired  or used machine from a reputable vendor.

I was looking at some possibilities which would come with the speed control and spotted some in the 8000 and DC lines (8050, 8070, DC1050, DC2014, DC3050), but was not familiar with these lines.  Can you share some insights on whether these might be a good machine for her?

Thanks,

Hi Cathy,

How did you manage to get it?  I phoned Janome in Stockport today and was told that they will be getting both the full version and upgrade of V 5.5 but do not know when or how much they will cost.  Viola

Well, I obviously didn't see this post first, Cynthia!  But, it is a great answer with even more info.  Let us know how it goes.  Kelly

Re: IMac question

Hi Cynthia,

    Yes, that is correct, but as long as your hard drive is still readable.  What I mean is that sometimes, for different reasons, you can't access your hard drive while it is in the computer, but it might not be totally dead and unusable if you plug it into this machine.  So, yes, you don't know until you try.  But, for 22 dollars, Amazon is great at returns; it is worth the effort.  So far, I have only had one hard drive that I have not been able to access because it was indeed totally dead.  And I think I have tried about 8 between my family and friends.  You can use this machine to "wipe" a hard drive too before you throw it away.  (The discs inside should have a hole punched in them for extra security though too)

    So if you buy it, you just follow the instructions on plugging the drive in.  I suggest "grounding" yourself by touching wood before you take out the drive and touch it etc.  So, then you plug this into your computer and it should pop up just like a jump drive or disc and you should be able to manually copy files from it by dragging them into a new folder or 'cut and paste"; however you usually like to do this.  If it does not actually show up, then the drive is probably totally dead, but again well worth the try.  Staples and computer companies charge you a lot of money to do this.  And like I mentioned, I have helped others recover data too so it is nice to own.  I did have issues with my sister's computer; she has a Windows laptop.  Some of the files I could not copy back on her Windows machine, but I could on my apple one and put them on a drive for her to then copy on her machine.  I did not have this problem with other Windows computers though.

    I do hope you try and please ask any questions you might have.  Good luck!  Kelly

Kelly,

I am not the person you originally were talking to, but I have a hard drive that I saved out of my old computer because it would not download windows any longer.  I would love to get all of my old designs off of it.  So if I bought this, would I just plug it into my new computer and it would copy things over for me?  Am I understanding this correctly?  Thank you for any help!

Re: AcuStitch for Windows

This version of the new AcuStitch in this bulletin is going to be a separate for purchase program, not part of our existing Horizon Link Suite, according to the bulletin.
Version 1.3 has a more basic version of AcuStitch.
I checked with my dealer this week about it and she said that it's not listed as an item that can be ordered yet. She thought maybe Janome would be releasing it at the VDTA dealer event in the USA in February.
Wait and see!


Re: 15000 V3 workbook

The Workbook is not available online, it's only a printed copy.
The user manual is not the Workbook, it's the book that came with your machine and can be downloaded free from the Janome website. If you type into your browser search engine, "Janome 15000 Manual" it will bring up some links where you can download it to your computer. It's in the Janome Support section of the site.
The manual can also be put on your tablet to take it with you! Be aware there's more than one version of the manual available, so get the one for your machine.

Please confirm me.

EVERYONE IS CONFIRMED! There is absolutely no reason to ask for confirmation, to grant confirmation, or post any message containing the word “confirm”. You’re all confirmed. This system does not require confirmation, and it does not grant confirmation. This message confirms that. I hope this confirmation will stop the flood of confirmation requests, confirmation grants, and confirmation in general.

Your dealer should be able to order the workbook (from Janome) for you if they don't have it in stock.  Hope this helps.  Dottie in Texas
