Opening designs in HL Suite 15000

Carole O'Mara
 

My designs (purchased) aren't opening in HLSuite.  I've opened Create Orig Acufil Design; input size of block; opened Design.  then went to my personal design folder; clicked on the design.   Message 1:  Failed to create original design.  Message 2:  This App can't run on your PC.  All the designs show with HL icon.  It does open Designs in built in Design Folder.  No problem when I had the 12000. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks,
Carole

If u have the 15000 there are a few ways each I think give great results , but rem the foot etc is only as good as your hand controlling the fabric , if u push the fabric or pull as such your stitch line will be wobbly ..
so you can use the O ¼” foot and move the needle to the right and measure ie 8.4 to check then save as fav 
use 0 foot and use patchwork ¼” setting 
use Hp foot and plate 
use Quilt decrotive 1/4” stitch on normal sewing 
i personally like patchwork setting but that’s me ..

I really like the HP foot for 1/4” seam piecing.

Just caught up on the last couple days of posts. Appreciate, not only the good info, but the humor. Just lost a fur buddy and it helps.


Ideas Wanted

Hello all. My granddaughter is a cheerleader at our high school. Wanted to
make something with the high school logo and her name but not sure what to
make. Now I decided to make something for all 20 cheerleaders and sponsors
- crazy I know!  I thought about a Christmas ornament but wanted something
they could use. Coasters would work but not sure that is practical for high
school girls. Was going to order inexpensive bags and embroider on them but
the cheaper ones don't hold up well. Then thought about making denim rag
bags but that would take a long time to make the bag and embroider on it
and clip all the edges. Hand towels - they could use them for a long time.
Key chains - they all are/will be driving soon. Note book/journal with
covers - always can use something to keep notes/thoughts in. More ideas?
Thanks much for any suggestions.
Kathy

What foot do you think gives most accurate 1/4" seam for quilting?
thanks.

Fold a narrow strip of fabric in half. Raise the presser foot. Insert the fabric into the right hand threading slot at the top of the machine. Pull it in as far as it will go, then work it back and forth to dislodge whatever may be stuck in there. Yesterday a video was posted in the 15000 Facebook group suggesting the use of denim, as it tends to grab onto debris better.

I have to agree with Faviola about the Superior Mono Poly.  I too have used the thread and the bobbins together and yes, it really does work very well.  I do drop my tension just one click . I have really good results too.

A very good alternative to monofilament thread is Invisafil 100wt thread, it comes in several neutral colors and is fantastic for anything that you’d not want the stitching to show prominently on.

Thanks to all that responded. I may have to look into locating both the Superior monofilament and the Invisifil.

Re: app for iPad for quilting

Jim Stutsman
 

Our Quilt in the Hoop app does that for the blocks that are built into it. I’m not up to speed on quilting apps, so I can’t recommend one. When I finish the app I’m currently developing I’ll take a look at it.

app for iPad for quilting

Love my new iPad Pro.  Do you recommend an app to audition quilting on a photo of a quilt?  Since you are not a quilter, maybe Diane has a favorite app for auditioning quilting on the iPad.

Good that it's going to New Jersey. I don't think you made a mistake with the machine, and your dealer is taking the appropriate action.


Re: After Motherboard Replacement

thank you. I will try.  But that machine can do an awful lot, I am sure that i do not actually know all the functions it should be able to do ;)  I just got a call, and he spent hours on it today, now it will be headed to NJ shortly.  So hopefully this will all get sorted there, and they will test everything.  I am sooooo second-guessing this purchase at this point.

Good Morning Elizabeth
       Like you I purchase designs. I do not use the recommended  brand colour and I do not reprogram the machine. Instead I simply print the design then match as closely as I need. Sometimes I prefer to use my own colour sense and will swap away from the design's choices. I do use quality threads and although I use Janome machines my collection is not based on their threads. The only suggestion I was given was to use the yellow dot bobbin case for the 500E if using non Janome thread. 
Sincerely

Ann

Just out if curiosity, does anyone have an opinion about accuracy of thread colors when the 12000 converts a purchased design to Janome thread?

Re: Thread colors

Jim Stutsman
 

Janome machines do not convert design colors to Janome thread. They only use the color information that is embedded in the design. Most design sellers digitize their designs using one set of colors and then rely on design conversion software to manage the conversion. This is not terribly accurate, and in the case of some formats like DST there is no color information in the design at all, so Janome colors are assigned sequentially. That results in a horrible mess most of the time.

My experience has been that I get all kinds of crazy colors.  Sometimes they match, more often they don't.

Re: After Motherboard Replacement

There is recalibration required for the bobbin sensor, but your problem might be connection related. There are a couple of dozen different plugs that have to be disconnected and reconnected when a main board is replaced. If the technician is in a hurry it's possible that one or two could be missed. I can't give you a list, but I would suggest you make time to try every single function of the machine before leaving next time.
