Project ideas

Lou Ann
 

I just visited Embroidery Library’s website and they have a new feature called Lookbooks. It includes their designs, but even if you want to use your own they include project instructions. Sometimes I just need inspiration and some of these ideas look really cute.


Re: Digitizer V5 - Hoop Sizes

The create a hoop in Version 5.  Select “Others” as your machine first.  Then right click on the “Show Hoop” icon.  A dialogue will open and you will then see where you can “Create” custom hoops.

In MBX5 go to Software Settings, select Hoop Selection, then Custom Hoops and then Create.

Who are you talking to and what are you referring to?  A little context goes a long way.

We are specifically talking about Organ Needles that match the Janome Red, Blue, and Purple tip needles period.

Sue, I don't have theV5, but MBX, and yes, in MBX you can make any size hoop your want for any machine. I have a Janome, Brother 10 needle and a Tajami 15 needle.  I'm glad you said that bc I probably would not of thought to ask that question. We just assume that it would be there.  Do you know if you can continue to use MBX along with V5?  I hear they are totally new and different programs. 
Ginger

You can install V5 alongside MBX as long as you are not using the upgrade version of V5. If you purchase the upgrade version of V5 it deactivates the MBX dongle and it will no longer be usable.

In the new digitizer v5 I notice there doesn't seem to be the ability to "create" a new hoop size. It feels very specific to Janome hoops, except 2 sizes under "others".

I thought in the older version we could do this? Am I thinking of one of the other multitudes of software that I might own? Feels like it should be there ... lol

Please advise,

SueR


While Digitizer V5 is an upgrade, it's also a complete rewrite. That makes it somewhat like a version 1 product because ALL of the code is new. A lot of features that were in previous versions have been moved. Yes, we used to be able to create custom hoops. This is discussed on page 64 of the MBX 4.5 instruction book. Diane has continued to use 4.5 in projects she is currently working on, as the combination of finding things and dealing with bugs was slowing her down in V5. At some point she will go back up the learning curve, but there is much to do first.

needles -- all good info

suerevere@ymail.com
 

I am intrigued by the comment that we can use our brother needles in our Janome 150000. I do have a Brother 10 needle and those needles are fabulous and stitch thru all things (lol).
It’s a fabulous thing if they can be used in both brands.
thanks for the info,
Sue R

I have to wonder if this is like printer companies saying you have to use their "brand" cartridges or you'll have problems.... 
After searching extensively and finding no actual needle specs for Janome, I spoke with a rep from Diamond Needle Corp in NJ about the Janome purple tip needles. He couldn't talk directly about the Janome needles but said that the Organ HAx130EB was also a cobra reinforced blade, light ball point and comes in several sizes as well as a topstitch model (HAx130N). He said they are sold for the Brother and Babylock 6 and 10 needle embroidery machines.  
http://www.diamondneedle.com/pdf/FSN-10.pdf http://www.diamondneedle.com/pdf/FSN-10.pdf 


So, I bought a small pack from a local Brother dealer to test and compare with the purple needle. The eye, front groove, scarf, cobra head, and point appeared to be the same. Asked my DH to measure with his micrometer (?). My 12000 liked them just fine and they seem to last longer. A box of 100 of these runs about $40. 


Re: Needles

Deb Keldrauk
 

I remember the post so clearly and I researched the needles then, I thought I am going to save this info so I will always have it. DARN if I can't find it anywhere and a new search does not kick up the exact article that I remember. DOESN'T THAT JUST BURN, WHEN THAT HAPPENS. So I went to Janome's needle descriptions and then to Organ Needles information and here what I got.

I have researched the best I can and the consensus here is generally correct:
Blue Tip needles are size 11 with a "slight" ball point and an oversize eye, 
that would equate to an Organ 15x1ST BP size 75/11

Purple Tip needles are size 14 with a ball point and a "Cobra head", 
that would equate to an Organ 15x1SP BP size 90/14

Jim,


Thank you so much.  I thank God everyday that you and Diane are there to help everyone on this list!


Your  "Crystal Ball" is working perfectly!  Yes, I do tend too over-think especially when it involves "Miss Annie" - AKA Janome 15000.  I try learning too many things at one time and then old age takes over!


Again, thank you.

Re: App clarification - correction

Jim Stutsman
 

The second sentence of my response should read:
Unfortunately these apps were only available for the Apple iPhone/iPad.

Once again my "clarification" has become confusion. Sigh.


Re: Needles

Organ make the needles for Janome.  In Canada, all the Janome machines have Organ brand needles, even the ones that are in a Janome pack are Organ, if you look on the shank it should say Organ.

Re: App clarification

Bernie Giannotti
 

Jim - Diane,


I am thoroughly confused - now that being said,  this is not unusual for me.

After buying the Janome 15000 I purchased your APP for the Janome 15000. I am more comfortable using my Laptop than the IPAD which confuses me.  Are there additional Video's for the 15000 or do I need to buy

the 12000 for my laptop for the $59.99 or $5.99?


Old Age is High Maintenance!


Thank you so much for you help.


Bernie Giannotti


Struggling to overcome the confusion, Jim says:

In the beginning there were only apps for the iPhone/iPad - one for the 12000 and one for the 15000. You have the 15000 app for your 15000 machine. Unfortunately these apps were not available for the Apple iPhone/iPad. Those who did not have one of those devices could not use them. Because of this we created web versions that work with web browsers, including those on Android phones and tablets.


You have a 15000, so there is absolutely NO REASON why you would want the 12000 videos online or otherwise. Your My 15000 app has exactly the same videos as the online version, and any new ones added will appear in the app automatically without you having to do anything.


To use the app on your iPad you need to do this:

1. Tap the icon for My 15000. It's labeled and is green with a white silhouette of a 15000 on it.

2. It opens on the video screen. Scroll until you find the video you want to see and tap it.

That's it, done!


To use the web app you would need to:

1. Open a web browser.

2. Enter the address of the website in the bar at the top.

3. Click on the video you want to watch.

4. The first time you would need to go through the payment process, which involves typing and clicking.


I have not implemented a discounted prices for 15000 app owners to "downgrade" to the web version, though I have published the website for a utility that allows the videos to be viewed on a computer. It doesn't sound like you are ready for that though, as it involves a bit more experience with the iPad. I'm sorry for the confusion, but you really have the best option. If you are finding the iPad confusing it's probably because you are thinking of it as a computer. Your finger is not a substitute for a mouse and you don't use it like that. Just touch what you want and it will happen. Don't over-think it!

Trying to remember his way back from the mailbox, Jim struggles to pull this out:

Janome red tip needles are size 14 universal. Blue tip are size 11 universal, although they might also be stretch if packed with the machine. The purple tip may not be available as Organ needles. They have a special tip and are sold by Janome in packages of 5. If anyone has found a bulk source for those, please post as they are pretty expensive in the 5 pack and they are quickly becoming the needle of choice for embroiderers and quilters.

Organ needles makes the purple tip for Janome.  You can buy them from Marathon threads in Canada or USA.  The number is 15x1SP.  You can also get it in ballpoint which I like 15x1SPBP.  Allstitch in USA has 100 for about $27.   They have the cobra head and elongated eye which makes a little different opening in fabric giving thread a smoother path.  I love them for free motion as well as embroidery.  They Were primarily designed for elastic but are great for all home sewing and embroidery machines.
