Re: Re To thread cutter

Was it doing a wide satin stitch? It might have thought that stitch was a jump stitch.  If it was a wide satin then turn off the cutter for that object.

Cutting the thread involves several separate operations all initiated by software. It's extremely unlikely that this is a malfunction. In the past I have seen this happen when a design has a lot of stitches, typically satin, that are longer than 1.27cm (about 1/2"). The machine treats them as jumps, and if cutting jump stitches is turned on it will do exactly what your machine is doing. Turn off jump cutting and the problem should go away.

Re: Permanently change a Default on Skyline 7?

Yes, you can permanently change the default setting of the presser foot pressure.
Use the Settings tab.
Ordinary Sewing functions, 
On page 4 you will find the adjustment for the presser foot pressure.
Make sure you select OK before leaving the screen to save your setting.

Re: Janome 11,000 my friend’s machine

Jim Stutsman
 

When we sold the 11000 this came up a lot. It's because over time the knee lift mechanism shifts slightly causing the foot height sensor to stick. I wasted a lot of time trying to solve the problem by adjusting the sensor until another dealer advised me that making a SLIGHT adjustment to the knee lift was the way to fix it. Your friend can't do this, of course, but she may be able to get around the problem by putting in the knee lift lever and working it back and forth a few times before turning on the machine. Ultimately a dealer will have to see it to permanently fix the problem.

Sounds like either the power supply, a sensor or a main board.  Some of these things are no longer available on an 11000 She will have to take it to a dealer

One-Inch Grid for Ironing Table Cover

Carole Hollmann
 

All --

I have an old table (30" x 72") that I use to iron on while sewing.  I know you can purchase VERY expensive canvas covers for drapery workroom tables, but I don't want to invest that much, especially since my table is considerably smaller than a workroom table.  Does anyone know where I could buy cheaper cotton or duck fabric with a 1-inch grid? The grid does not have to be numbered, although that would be great.

Thanks.

If you have the Favorite Stitch Adjustment turned "on", you can set the foot pressure for each stitch individually. The link shows the manual page with the directions for this. I don't know of a way to change the factory default settings other than to ask your dealer to adjust it when it's in for service.

Re: Resize embroidery design

  It worked perfectly the way you described.  The design defaulted to the hoop the design would accommodate.  I then resized the design and edited the hoop.  Thank you.

Permanently change a Default on Skyline 7?

Kathy Strabel
 

Hello-  I hope all are still doing well and getting lots of sewing done.
Is it possible to permanently override the default settings on the Skyline 7 machine? I specifically would like to have the default for the foot pressure loosened up so it is 2 "clicks" lower than the factory-set default. I find my machine stitches much better with the looser presser foot pressure. I can always set it 2 clicks lower, but every time I change to a different stitch, or even change the length or width of the same stitch, I have to re-do the presser foot pressure setting every time.  Without making this adjustment, the hook that holds in my walking foot in its holder pops out all the time, and  I have have other inconveniences happen with the default setting---for instance, I wanted to pleat for making some masks, and the foot just pushed the pleats forward so they were flat instead of actual pleats! Very frustrating, so I just changed to a different style of mask and make a bunch to donate.   PLease advise re: the default setting question.  Thank you!

Hi Cheryl:

Thanks again for being there for me.  You have no idea how much I appreciate it.

Yes, best way is 1 design at a time.  I think moving forward, I will probably just use the USB stick.  Much easier and less tension (big smile).

I printed out your email and it's in a folder by my machine!

Thanks again, you are the best.

June


Re: Horizon Link Software -

June,
Good for you. You made it. Keep at it. Write down what you do and tape it to your 15000 (just kidding) so you never forget and have a reminder. I think that sometimes the biggest challenge is getting what you want/need to where it’s wanted. Sewists aren’t necessarily computer wizards, but I think that technology is trying to get us there.

You probably figured out that transferring designs is a “one at a time” process or at least that’s the only way I’ve done it. Also using a USB is the easiest way that I’ve found. If the WiFi works and everything is open on the right page in both the computer and sewing machine it usually works, but as you found, not always.

Have fun at your class.
