Most machines read .dst so shouldn’t be a problem


Re: MBX V5 Problem

It could be you need to uninstall that will remove all the files and not leave stray files, and reinstall.  Do it through the uninstall manage program in control panel or you could try contacting Wilcom.  It sounds as if the hack has corrupted the software.  Before you uninstall try purging the recovery files and deleting back up.  Just one file in there can cause problems. Then try opening it again.  I also find that I have fewer problems if when opening the software I switch off the internet, I can turn it on again after it’s opened.

one last thing do you have the firewall turned on and a good internet security program.  AVG do a free version that is very good and there’s another one called Spybot that is excellent and only €10 I used it for several years without any problems.

Underlay stitches often are a little longer, and with less tension, so it's not unusual for them to have small loops that are eventually covered with fill stitches. However if you have a problem that only happens in one direction it's probably due to a burr on the inside of the hole in the presser foot P, or in the hole in the needle plate. It could also be due to a burr on the bobbin case and/or hook race, but those usually show up in all directions. Burrs on the P foot are rare, as it's metal, but if you've broken a needle during embroidery that could well be it. An easy way to check the needle plate is to just swap it with the alternate - either straight stitch for regular or vice-versa. If the problem is the plate it will disappear with the alternate. It doesn't take much of a nick to cause thread to catch. Use strong light and magnification when inspecting.

I agree with Pixie in that this designer appears to not convert her designs to the Jasnome format for a personal reason. There are many other designers who do and if you are starting out perhaps choosing a design with JEF as an option would lessen some of the decision making.
I have a number of online designers I buy from and perhaps the only caveat is I buy from trusted designers to ensure quality of stitch out.

good luck

Re: Converting Cross Stitch pattern to embroidery file possible?

Donna: Thank you as your post reminded me that I already bought that software with the add-on 2 years ago. 
I put it on my PC and then just got distracted with so many other projects that I never went back after getting
it loaded on the computer. I'm not sure if it can take an existing cross stitch design or import a jpg and export it to jef but worth
taking some time to figure it out.


Re: Dual Feed foot

The designs are from the Learn 2 Count collection by Anita Goodesign. Mine are in the All Access collection from Jan. 18 but I'm sure you can get them on their website. They are originally for a soft book, so quilt directions are sparse. I got help from their customer service. Very responsive. I did the embroidery on a 10 needle but am sure you can do it on the 15000. Lots of stops and starts.

Anybody know how to fix this?my 15000 is leaving loops on the lines of sewing while sewing the underpayment for a design. The problem happens only on underpayment stitch and when it’s sewing on diagonal and sewing right to left. There are parallel rows of stitches 1/8th inches apart.  Doesn’t happen when stitching left to right.

I'm not sure what attachment you are referring to. Generally images that are included in posts appear in the post. For photos and files go to the list website and click the "Photos" or "Files" button on the left side of the screen.

I’ve had very good luck converting PES files to JEF files, when JEF files weren’t available. The converted file sewed out nicely. The main difference I noted was that the colors wouldn’t always be the same. However, many times, I would substitute other color threads  because I didn’t have the one specified and wasn’t interested in purchasing 5 or 6 more greens when I already had colors which would work.

Subject: [onlinesewing-janome] Embroidery Design Question

 

I realize I am way behind but SS enable me to purchase a new machine.  I want to order some machine embroidery designs..  The designer posted this:  Embroidery formats available: ART, EXP, PES, PEC, EMD, HUS, SHV, VIP, VP3, SEW, PCS, PCD, PCQ, PCM, CSD, XXX, DST
(Please note: My software will NOT write JEF files)  Her software does not write JEF files.  Should I order SEW or PES and convert?  If I order SEW and convert to JEF will the design still start of center?  I have the Janome 10001.  I do still have a 9000 but I've completely forgotten how to use it.

Thank you in advance for all your help.

I’m new to this group, and I’m wondering how I can see the attachment.  I can’t seem to see how to do that!  :(


Re: Embroidery Design Question

Lyn Quine
 

I would go for .dst most modern machines will read it without needing to convert it, it doesn’t hold colour information you will need the colour chart.  But if your machine doesn’t read it, it is the closest format to the native file.


Re: Embroidery Design Question

Pixey
 

I would recommend considering a different designer that does offer JEF files.  Even though software will do it, converting stitch files, especially complex ones with layers and a lot of color changes can be tricky and you can end up with oddities where the designs just don’t come out like the picture.

Also, you may want to check her copyright or use license.  Since she so explicitly points out that she does not offer a JEF format,  converting one of the other design formats to JEF may not be allowed.

Just finished my first Minky project, a baby quilt, and, again want to sing the praises of the dual feed foot. This time I used the large one and two of the attachments. The photo in my album shows the front before adding the back which was the real challenge as the intersecting seams were very bulky. The foot required some tension adjustment, but after that, just sang along. I top stitched with the in-the ditch part and love it.

As you do not have Digitizer MBX, I would recommend a stand alone software called Patternmaker.  You need to buy the Standard and the Machine Embroidery add-on. I have used this software for over 15 years.  It is much better than the MBX cross stitch software.  Here is the link http://www.hobbyware.com/pm.htm
