Hi Jim
I am a very new user to MC 12000 and have purchased the PC DVD's. It would be handy to have on the iPad. 
Can they be downloaded on iPad now if so how? 

Thanks 
Jackie



Trying to be handy, Jim says:
You're absolutely right. This page explains how to do it.

Make sure the when typing in password/wi fi info that you are typing with the appropriate lettering by using upper or lower case. Apple defaults to upper case

The 1.04 update to the machine improved WiFi communication, so if you have not installed it you should do so now. If your machine is already version 1.04 try rebooting your wireless router by unplugging it, waiting 10 seconds, and plugging it back in. If that has no effect take your machine and iPad to your dealer. If you can connect to the dealer machine, but your dealer cannot connect to yours with their iPad, there may be a problem with the WiFi hardware.


I can't say what the situation is with Quiet mode. This may also be a dealer item, but before doing that I would reinstall the 1.04 update even if you've already done it prior to this post. Use a different flash drive this time. Reapplying the update will rewrite the firmware in the machine, and that may clear both problems.

Jim, I was using the quilting straight stitch function - not sure what the pressure is for that stitch, do you know if it is also adjusted fro less pressure?  On the 12000 you cannot used the patchwork function with the straight stitch plate,


 

Thanks


Paul



Jim speaks:

Alas our 12000 went to a new home when the 15000 rolled in, so we can no longer try things on that machine. Since you are the only person to report this problem so far, I'm thinking that your foot pressure may need recalibrating by the dealer. Here are two things to try:


1. Put back the regular needle plate and try stitching with the Patchwork Application. That should be adjusting the pressure for piecing. If your fabric is still curling up in that mode I would suspect that the pressure is just too high and recalibration is needed.


2. For piecing with the straight stitch plate try reducing the pressure with the SET screen for Ordinary Sewing. It's on the bottom of page 7 of that SET. Reduce the pressure by touching the "-" and test until you find it working correctly.

I personally use the Janome blue tip needle for almost everything including patchwork and embroidery.  I LOVE them.  I just finished making 24 applique embroidery frogs and never had one thread break or any kind of needle or thread problem.  (I was using Exquisite embroidery thread).

It does not look like you have your dual feed foot attached.  Try using your dual feed foot.  You fabric looks like you have more than one layer.  Also I only use Janome red Tip or Organ 90 needles for everything.  Never used any other needle for either my 11,000 or my 12,000.

Jim, tried that and same problem.  I even used a 70/10 microsharp needle.  Pictures attached.   One shows the cloth rising up before the needle and the other shows the cloth inside the right edge of the foot to maintain a 1/4" scant.

Paul


Jim's response:
The pictures told the story. The problem is too much pressure on the foot. If you are using the 1/4" straight stitch on the utility stitch screen (automatic when you turn the machine on) you need to reduce the foot pressure until you can seam with the fabric flat. Using the Application key, Patchwork function, the pressure is adjusted automatically and it works perfectly.

Jim: Videos available on IPad?

juliadlf.ny@...
 

Hi Jim:
Thought to ask if the videos you produce will be available for downloading on IPad?
Also do you have a sample of the Embroidery one like you did for the Sewing part?

Thanks
Julia


Jim says:

Yes, you will be able to view them on an iPad. No sample yet - we normally do that last. Thanks for asking!

Thanks Jim, will do.

follow up question on 1/4" and 1/4 "scant seams

prc
 

I want to use the straight stich plate for sewing 1/4" and 1/4" scant inch edges.  The problem I have is the cloth rises up since it is not sitting under the edge of the foot.  I have tried a number of different feet - A, F, OV (without the 1/4 guide) & E.  So far the E foot seems to be the best but it is still a real pain to keep the stich perfectly straight.  Using the cloth guide does not help with the problem of the cloth rising up when using the straight stich plate.


How do others deal with getting perfect 1/4" edges and is anyone doing it with the straight stich plate (that plate supports the cloth much better around the needle giving a much better stich pattern (IMHO).


Paul



Rising from the couch, Jim says:

The straight stitch plate is the best choice for piecing and the OV or O foot is also suggested. Diane thinks that the problem may be a needle that is dull or too large, which can cause the fabric to be pulled up with each stitch. Try using a size 11 new needle, preferably a quilting or other sharp needle. If that doesn't solve the problem please send us a picture so we can better see what the problem is.

The videos are well worth the money...Jim and Diane went all out putting the videos together. I just hope that Jim and Diane never quit because we all have had to get help from them on one thing or another. They do an excellent job!   Cathy

Re: Accessory Case - Worth It?

laucke2011@...
 

I think it is worth it as I hate having things laying around, I live in Australia and Janome here could not supply me with one so I had to send to US for it, and with cost of postage I had to make sure it was really worth it.

Re: Does anyone have a "favorite" stitch setting for the scant 1/4 inch?

I have my machine down in a cabinet.  I have to raise the machine to attach the embroidery unit.  Because of this I don't use the cloth guide for patchwork.  I would rather sew with the top of my machine even with the top of the cabinet.

I am so upset.  I have been looking for my cloth guide for the last 2 months.  Really miss it.  I order another so I bet I will now find it.  Ugggggg

Lori,
The cloth guide is that big plastic attachment that fits into the place where the hoops connect. While it looks something like the one in this photo, it attaches to the embroidery arm while the arm is in the closed position.

Re: Accessory Case - Worth It?

juliadlf.ny@...
 

Many thanks all for the info regarding the case. My concern was if the cloth guide wouldn't fit then I'd rather find something that would be for all accessories so I'm not hunting around looking for the guide when I needed it. The sewing room tends to get a bit untidy when in the middle of a project.
Sounds like it can work out so I'll put that on my list to get .

Hi Virgina,
I'm going to pop over to Janome as well, HOWEVER, from my experience, I've found that the manufacturer's videos, workbooks and instructions, assume that the user actually knows what they were doing :)  Though they may be helpful, I'm looking forward to Jim's videos myself...
