Help please.   I have 100’s of designs on my computer. I have Embitd so can covert them from previous format to jeff for my new 550e.  However my machine does not seem to recognize the designs on USB.    Do I need to download the disk that came with machine called embroidery editor (seemed to me I wouldn’t need it since I used Embird).

i have read manual and looked at you tube video.    The file shows on the machine screen but seems to be empty     When I check USB drive on the computer it shows designs there.

Can someone help please.    Thanks

Thank you, thank you, thank you.    I followed your instructions and for the first time the file showed up on my sewing machine.

So I have to edit, resize or whatever in Embird save the design to my computer files.   Then when I want the design on the USB I have to send direct from Embird.    Not possible to send to the USB from my embroidery files on my pc?

I really appreciate your help with this.   Had spent a couple days fiddling with it, many trips back and forth from computer to downstairs sewing room.   Was getting frustrated.    Will probably be up late now 🥴 embroidering.

Gosh ..... auto fill got away on me.  When formatting the usb stick it should say Emb/embf folders and not Emb/Embird folders.  Guess my Computer saw I typed emb and filled Embird instead of embf.  Hope this didn’t cause confusion.  Good luck getting 500E to read designs.

Re: Designs from computer to USB to machine

monal
 

Ensure your USB stick is no larger than 2 GB - machine doesn't seem to like the larger sticks - too many designs to process.  If going directly from your computer to machine than maybe try making another folder and only having a few designs in it as maybe you are putting too many through and the machine can't process them all.

Re: acuSetter and S9 won’t talk to each other

Pixey
 

If you have a multi-band wireless router, you might make sure it is set up so that the different “bands” can talk between each other.  I was having a problem with a new router and discovered one device was connecting to the slower 2.4 GHz band and the other had connected to the higher band 5GHz signal and the router was defaulted to keep the two signals isolated (as a “security feature).  Once my tech support changed settings to allow the two bands to talk to each other as the same “network”, all is working fine.

Re: Designs from computer to USB to machine

Janome embroidery Machines can be a bit persnickety about where you put designs on the USB.  Drives my Embroidery Club teacher who is more used to Brother and Baby Lock machines a bit crazy.

I don’t have my 500e in front of me but think it works like the EMB files on the S9 (which is explained in the older group message #19633 from 4/18/2017).  First you need to format your USB in the machine (this is under settings).  This creates the EMB and EMBF file paths.  If you want to put a folder of designs on the USB, they can go under the EMB folder.  If you want to put individual designs on the USB, then they need to go under EMB > EMBF file path.  Also, the machine will separately display the designs based on hoop size.  So if you don’t see a larger design on the first screen, continue paging through to see additional designs for different size hoops.

Re: New to Janome

You might also try Anita Goodesign designs at https://www.anitagoodesign.com/

Also, I suggest you look into whether there are any Machine Embroidery Clubs at your local sewing machine or quilting stores.  These are a great way to learn about stabilizers and tips/techniques.

Like any art form, you will find there are a myriad of opinions on the Internet, and even in this group, that are represented as “fact” or the “only way to do something.”  But what works great for one person doesn’t for another.  So don’t be afraid to experiment. And if it goes awry, odds are one of us may have tried it and can offer insights.

Hello,  I am new to Janome machine embroidery with a 500E and stumbled onto this group via YouTube.  If anyone can offer any websites or fun embroidery projects I'd love to hear about them.  I'd like to create a few Christmas items if I learn how to use my new machine quickly. 
Thanks!

Re: Skyline 7 foot

blue_lak
 

The zig zag A foot may be as close as you'll get from Janome for doing zig zag, being part metal and part clear plastic and a narrow slot. The Clear View Quilting Foot and Guide Set works for straight stitch without either guide attached. Note that the feet are narrower, not just closer together.

Re: Skyline 7 foot

Ande Jackson
 

I use the HP2 foot with the straight stitch plate that came with my S9.  It has two holes that coincide with the 2 holes in the foot.  I use the left most needle position for 1/4 inch and the right most for a 1/8 in seam allowance.  Works great and the plate makes sure I cannot do something I shouldn’t.

Janet--If you are new to machine embroidery in general, you probably should stick to some of the more well-known embroidery websites. LIke Embroiderylibrary.com. They have lots of designs, and instructional pages for some specific projects. THeir designs always sew out beautifully. Be aware, though, that some of their designs have so many stitches that they approach the status of being "bulletproof".  THe 500e is a very nice machine; it is my embroidery-only machine after years of another brand. I am quite happy with the 500e.  Enjoy your new machine!
