Thanks Jim, downloaded it fine, I use a thread called GEM, sold by the Happy multiple needles machine company here in Australia, any chance it can be added?

if you don’t mind I also have another question, finally getting some lessons on using the computer side of my S9, the lesson will be embroidery placement in the hoop.  I managed to download the AccuSetter App alright but can’t seem to make it find my machine, the only option I see is for the 15000 machine, advice would be appreciated.  Thanks and regards, Mary 

Re: 15000 skipped stitches on right side only

Ask to have these two settings checked and adjusted if necessary:

1. Needle bar height

2. Hook timing

If both of those are correct check needle to hook clearance. All of these settings are in the 15000 service manual, so they should have no problem doing them.

It's there as "Fil-Tec Glide". If you search for "Glide" in the brand chooser it will find it.

15000 skipped stitches on right side only

Sheri-A
 

Background:  In February, the feed dogs went out of whack.  I took my machine in where the tech had no experience on this problem.  Machine was in warranty with this shop (5 year parts and labor), so I needed for them to fix it.  It took almost a month since the tech said he needed the Janome techs to walk him through it.  A few months later I started having skipped stitches, my machine was no longer under warranty, so I took it to another local shop for annual cleaning and the skipped stitches.  After the machine was cleaned, the tech said there was no problem with the skipped stitches so he didn't need to do additional work.  

Working on putting the binding on a bib (4 layers of fabric plus batting) the skipped stitches came back and bad!   I have cleaned the machine, changed the needle 3 times (red, purple and Superior topstitch), also changed the thread, bobbin, and bobbin holder.  While testing, I came to realize that the skipped stitches are only on the right side.  If I do a serpentine like stitch, all is well on the left and skipped stitches on the right.

I know I will need to take it in for repair, but I'm hoping Jim or another techie on this group and help me understand more before I take it in.  I don't want to be over-sold unnecessary repairs if possible. Thank you in advance!!!

Thank you

I’m so sorry Jim. I thought you knew. LOL. why do you think they put all your toys in one room? 

If if you have your wind back please accept my apologies for being the bearer of bad news. 🤭😉

thanks for for the explanation of how this stuff works. My husband is not a Mac person AT ALL and is of no help really. Thank goodness for you, Diane and all you do for us. I’d be lost these days (well more than usual) without you and your apps. 

Back to to staring at the snow and hopefully sewing.

See you there Debbie!  I’m hoping to get there in time Thursday to visit Nova. I buy everything from Sean but have never met him or seen a store. lol

Hi Jane. We do have snow and it seems like it’s here to stay. I grew up in Brampton and I don’t remember getting snow before the end of the month. We will be careful driving. The 401 can be treacherous during bad weather. 

The seminar nary is at janome’s New training centre. I think I saw a post here a couple of months ago and then a Janome blog post. We have to bring all our stuff for our 15k’s and it is machine specific. 

I really need need some hands on help and Nova is my dealer and you have all the locations near you.

Hello, have seen mention of the ThreadBook app, I have an S9, would this app work with my machine and how do I get it?  Thanks and regards Mary.

Re: Oakville seminar

Jane Dunne
 

Hi, I am from Cambridge Ont and I have missed the posts about this seminar in Oakville so would you please tell me about it. By the way we have about six or more inches of snow here and it is still snowing. I know you have none in Ottawa but Oakville usually gets pretty much the same as we do. I am about an hour and a quarter to get to Oakville.
Just be careful driving on Thursday.

While VMware Fusion is marvelous for supporting Windows on Macs of all kinds, it can present a challenge to sort out where things are. There are a couple of ways to deal with this, both utilizing the Fusion concept of Shared folders. While running Windows on your Mac, click on the Virtual Machine menu and pick Sharing -> Sharing Settings. The top half of this menu allows you to map folders on your Mac so they are directly available in Windows. Tick the Enable Shared Folders box\ and then the plus button below to choose folders to add. You can name each folder however you like. In Windows they are accessed using drive Z, for example Z:\Embroidery Designs. A second option is to check one or more folders in the Mirrored Folders section of the settings. When you do this, the checked folder is always the one on the Mac, even if you open it in Windows. This option works best if you choose it right from the start, immediately after setting up your virtual machine. Once you have started putting things in the Windows Library -> Documents, for example, enabling the mirror option for Documents will cause only the Mac documents to be visible in Library -> Documents.

Generally I like to keep everything in the Mac universe, using the Sharing options to access it from Windows. Of course I spend 98% of my dwindling time on this earth on the Mac, so that works best for me. Answering this has exhausted me, so I'm going to grab my shawl and drag myself to the rocking chair to rest.

Hi Jim, I'm running MBX 5.5 through VMWare Fusion on my macbook Air. I can with some effort find my design files which i am storing in dropbox. Dropbox was installed on my Mac through the Apple side. I have a link on my windows desktop that lets me get to my shared drive on my Mac folder tree. 

I've been trying to use Horizon Link to update my screensaver on my 15K but am unable to access photos even on my desktop (Mac) which show on my Windows desktop. Are they ghosts?

I am going to the Janome seminar this week and know that I have to be able to get at everything HL in order to participate in that part of the seminar. I can watch and hopefully learn something if need be.  HL is working otherwise on my Windows. I think I even have the newest version working since my 15K was upgraded to the quilt edition.

Any suggestions? I would also like to thank you again for spending your twilight retirement years helping us. My dealer is 6 hours away. He is great but a long distance relationship is not without it's problems. 

BTW, I installed VMWare using your wonderful guide on switching to a mac. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Judy,

Great Snow people quilt! 

I use fusible Polymesh under quilt labels and under T-shirts, especially the really lite weight ones. It does a good job of supporting the embroidery stitches.

Sample file for Janome RE36b hoop

Mattes
 

Hi all!

Janome has introduced the large hoop RE36b with their MC550e embroidery machine. People are asking me to support this hoop with StitchBuddy, an embroidery editor for macOS and iOS.

Unfortunately I couldn‘t investigate any sample file to learn about the hoop‘s internal code, yet. Has anybody a sample JEF file using the RE36b hoop, and is willing to send it to info(at)stitchbuddy(dot)de?


Any help is appreciated, Mattes

Re: s9

Elizabeth Mccall
 

Hi Dianne & other 15000 owners. Why didn't  JANOME  make TWO separate instruction books for such a technical & expensive machine ? 
 One is really  needed for  Embroidery sewing by itself   using the furnished i Pad  &  all using  the newer electronics .
Maybe Jim & Dianne can answer this question & publish a book for those that are afraid or frustrated  by this side of the machine..
Their  JAMONE APP is wonderful  ! 
Thanks, for that ,Jim & Diane.
