Re: memory cards from 10 or 11 K

Compact Flash readers work well for compact flash cards, but the Janome Memory Cards are not Compact Flash. They have the same type of pin out, but use different pins than compact flash.

I'm new to this group but seem to keep be going the wrong way. But I would like to get the new topic.  I need to learn a lot to get onto all the site.  Seems like I keep going the wrong way most of the time.

I use a compact flash card reader.
See attached picture. They have a USB to connect to computer.

Glass Fusible Beads

June E Hudspeth
 

Hi Everyone:  I am starting to make an applique lighthouse quilt and the designer says she used glass fusible beads for the window.  As hard as I've tried, I cannot find them anywhere.  I searched Amazon, JoAnn's, Michaels and Fire Mountain Gems.  

I've never even used them before.

Any hints, suggestions?

Thanks so much!  June

I use alcohol swaps. They come individual packets in the pharmacy dept. Nail polish remover has acetone in it. Be careful.

Nail polish remover with acetone works well.  I'd take the needle out first so you don't get any on your machine.

If the USB has too many designs in one folder it will be slow reading the designs.  The machine brain is not as big and fast as your iPad or computer.  Only keep a few designs on a USB the ones you want to use now, then as long as they are backed up on a computer or external drive, delete them from your working USB.  I was moving designs from my laptop to new computer and I loaded a 1GB USB with over 5000 designs and there was still space for more but I would never expect my 15000 to be able to read all of them.

Hi there, I ordered the sample book for OESD stabilizers and their backing are nice. I caught a sale on line for 30% off , so I stocked up.. I love to use the JANOME built in lace patterns on dissolveable  backing .
 I make them with cotton crean thread top and bobbin, to sew ( by machine ) on my denim jackets.

I agree with Jim's comment about the Floriani Workbook re: stabilizers and what to use when.  It's a free download from RNK Distributing.  I've used it often while learning and use floriani stabilizer when I can afford it and other brands when I cannot.
 
As for websites for designs - when you are ready for In The Hoop projects - my favorite site is www.embroiderygarden.com  Reen's projects all have linings and no raw edges, they stitch well and her directions are wonderful.  Take your first one slow and easy, read the instructions and make sure your hoop looks like the one in the photo for each step.  After you do one - you'll be able to do any of them.  Putting a zipper in while doing machine embroidery is loads of fun!

Happy stitching!

Thanks, for the help...I do know how to format  the  USB's  & had my Janome 15000 in for a full update  this month. So i'm hoping that will help it work more quickly on reading a USB..  My Janome Dealer is closing , so Ihave very limited help ion my area of Western North Carolina. I would just love to purchase USB's from any one that has patterns for sale for the Janome 15000. I hope this day will come where we can order them from dealers on line. It would really help those of us "in the woods.". The dealer in Asheville, NC doesn't really service or carry much for Jamone, as they sell Bernina  & the machine service is backed up.  I have driven 3 hours  east of here to a service in Hildebrand, NC,. left my machine & driven back and forth ...long days.
Thanks for your time and correspondence. I appreciate hearing from other Janome users.
I purrchased the "MY JANOME APP" for my i-pad and it is really GREAT ! ☺Did Jim do this program?  I do want to learn more. !!

I hope I haven’t confused you, but if I did I know that Jim will step in and explain it better - right Jim?

If you still have your 11000 you can read them into your computer over the USB cable. Otherwise it's going to be next to impossible to extract the designs because the connector they use is proprietary to Janome and is not available for any external device.
