A solution might be that after you have chosen your stitch.leave it on the sxreen where you make adjustments this way if you accidently touch it it will only change your adjustments

The random nature of group email lists sometimes leads to large disparity in timing. This post started last year, and is no longer relevant. However the questions asked are still valid, so here’s my take on them:

  1. This issue has been common for a lot of people. If you haven’t tried it yet, try the technique in this video, about 3 minutes in.
  2. Not sure this is a question. Horizon Link Suite is pretty well covered in our My 15000 app.
  3. AcuDesign is without a doubt the most frustrating app that Janome has. The current version is 3.1, last updated a year ago. I tried it this morning on an iPad that I had not used it on before. Immediately after launching it offered to link to Dropbox. I did that and was able to import designs without any issues. However in trying to verify that I had the latest version (unsuccessful), I opened Settings and was surprised to see that Dropbox was showing as disabled. Yet it works. As Linus, from the comic strip “Peanuts” used to say, there is no heavier burden than a great potential. Try removing the app entirely, then downloading again. You will not have to pay again, and if you did purchase the lettering option you can restore the purchase without paying again. That might get it working again.

Thank you your help is much appreciated.

1.  Both my 15000 an 12000, the thread jumps out of the take up lever sometimes in embroidery mode

2.  I have Digitizer V5.5 and providing I make sure to purge the back up and recovery regularly I have few problems, I’ve never got to grips with HL as I have 5.5 but I would like to use it for the sewing side.  

3.  My biggest problem with the iPad apps is Acudesign no longer links to dropbox and try as I might I cannot relink it.  It worked when I first got the Acudesign suite, but dropbox updated and the link was lost.  I have tried many times to get it linked but to no avail.

I do have more magnets, but never thought about putting more than one on at each place. I just tried it both with a smaller magnet and one of the same size. Unfortunately, this didn't seem to help them to stay on any better, but thanks for the suggestion.


Re: quilting on my 12000

I will see what I can find, thank you. I do have more of the magnets, same size and small ones. I just tried to put an additional magnet on and none of them stayed on any better, using one or two. So I don't know if a longer one would work anyway. But thanks for the suggestion.

Thank you for undertaking this task.  Many of us cannot get to dealer we bought machine from to take classes.  I am excited.  I do not spend as much time as I would like to on my 15,000 but other than the problem you said to not mention I have been very pleased with the machines performance. I will be looking forward to January 2019.  It almost seems like it is around the corner,

I never quilted in the hoop with the GR hoop when I had the 12000. I had purchased the Acufil kit which has more magnets (8) that
come with the included hoop. I don't think that 4 magnets that you get with the GR is sufficient to hold a quilt sandwich, but that is just my opinion.
Not sure if Janome sells extra magnets. Worth googling to see if you can buy the magnets separate. 
Good luck.

Thank you very much. I’ll take a look

If you can get the magnets from the 11000, they are longer and work better than the short ones.


Re: accidentally bumped the touch screen when quilting?

I, too, have done what you describe, accidentally hitting the screen and changing the stitch, but I know of no way to prevent this except to be very, very careful.


quilting on my 12000

Sherryl Doran
 

I am trying to quilt a baby quilt on my 12000 with a GR size hoop, using Amelie Scott's Edge-to-Edge Quilting software in the embroidery function. The difficulty I have is in trying to secure the hoop with the four magnetized "clips" or whatever they are called. No matter how tight or loose I make the frame, these clips are very hard to get to stay in place, popping off suddenly, even after I have begun to quilt. While it is somewhat entertaining when they do this, it is also frustrating that I can't seem to get them to stay on. This is not a particularly thick quilt, two layers of flannel and a layer of polyester batting. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make it easier to hoop a quilt for this type of project? I have used this system before with varying levels of difficulty getting the project hooped. Thanks!

To sew multiple lines of text you need to enter each line separately on the EDIT screen. See page 118 in the instruction book.

To change the measurements in Horizon Link click the circle icon in the top left corner of the screen. The setting is there.

Hello, I just bought a Janome 12000.  Is there a way to sew multiple lines of text?  Is there any site I can visit with tutorials for the 12000?  Thank you. 


changing from mm to inches

Carole O'Mara
 

I need to resize a purchased design, single run to use to quilt a small quilt.  I have the 15K and using Windows 8.  When I upgraded to the 15000 some of the setting on the PC were lost.  How do I change the setting on the PC to show the size of designs in inches and not mm.  The 15K machine shows the size in inches.  I have imported the design into HL and going to EDIT in the menu bar--the size/resize is grayed out.  
Thanks,

Re: New Owner of a used Janome 6500 Memorycraft - March 2019

I've finished quilting my Sampler Quilt - 24 x 24 - and my next project is a Disappearing Nine-Patch quilt I've pieced using Spring-time fabrics. I've pin-basted it and it's ready for quilting. I've learned a lot during the "trying out" phase of free motion quilting. I need lots more practice, though, to regulate speed and stitch length. I'm trying to maintain 10 stitches to an inch, but occasionally I'm getting 12 stitches - but that's still okay. I don't plan to purchase a stitch regulator though. I'll continue to work on consistency - and don't plan on much dense quilting or fancy designs. 
Actually, on the Sampler Quilt, I did do quite dense quilting. And I don't like the finished product. It just makes it too stiff.


Re: 350e

Jim Stutsman
 

There are two separate issues here. The design positioning problem could be due to the Viking software not correctly formatting the design for JEF. Also, when lettering is created automatically with software, it usually optimizes the stitch order and that can lead to weird placement. Unless you are having problems with built-in designs, or designs created with Janome software, it's unlikely to be a machine problem. If the USB stick is old, it could also be wearing out. They do have a life, and after a long time they can start to not read correctly.

Lack of bobbin thread would suggest a tension issue. If the back is loopy you probably don't have enough needle tension. That can be due to threading without the presser foot being up, or there may be debris caught between the tension discs. Fold a narrow strip of fabric in half, raise the presser foot, and "floss" the tension area using the folded edge. This will usually clear anything that's caught in there. Some say denim works best, but pretty much any shirt weight or heavier fabric will work.

Thanks. I shall check that out. I fiddled with it and it is working. Seems I remember the presser foot lever being dropped when we were changing the foot. My eight year old GGD sews on this machine. She has little hands
