Re: Janome App for embroidery machine

Jim Stutsman
 

Gute Frage! (Great question) Apps are very much connected to the iOS operating system and the operating system is limited by the capabilities of the device. For example, when the 15000 was released Janome gave away free iPads in the US. Those were 2nd generation iPads, which were already being replaced by more capable models. Those iPads can not be updated to any version of iOS after iOS 9. We are currently at iOS 13. The apps on those devices still work, but you cannot get any new apps that require iOS 10 or later. So if you have an older device, the apps on it will continue to work as long as the device does. You just won't be able to get any new apps. Developers would like to make apps that support even old devices, but Apple this and it becomes difficult to add features that require newer versions of iOS.

Auf Deutsch:
 Apps sind sehr stark mit dem iOS-Betriebssystem verbunden und das Betriebssystem ist durch die Fähigkeiten des Geräts eingeschränkt. Zum Beispiel, als der 15000er veröffentlicht wurde, verschenkte Janome kostenlose iPads in den USA. Das waren iPads der zweiten Generation, die bereits durch leistungsfähigere Modelle ersetzt wurden. Diese iPads können nach iOS 9 nicht mehr auf eine Version von iOS aktualisiert werden. Wir sind derzeit bei iOS 13. Die Apps auf diesen Geräten funktionieren noch, aber Sie können keine neuen Apps erhalten, die iOS 10 oder höher erfordern. Wenn Sie also ein älteres Gerät haben, funktionieren die Anwendungen darauf so lange wie das Gerät. Du wirst einfach keine neuen Apps mehr bekommen. Entwickler möchten Anwendungen entwickeln, die sogar alte Geräte unterstützen, aber Apple dies und es wird schwierig, Funktionen hinzuzufügen, die neuere Versionen von iOS erfordern.

Re: Skyline 7 foot

Anne Stoye
 

I have an S7 and a 12000 and interchange the feet.  I find I use the HD quarter inch foot a lot, whenever I need to see where I am stitching and for exact edge stitching (obviously straight stitching only).  Have you thought about the applique foot for a good view of wider stitches?

Janome App for embroidery machine

pflegemaus@...
 

I would be interested if Janome the apps for the embroidery machines overworked. they work after Appel has implemented a few updates, but they somehow stopped when looking at Brother.

I have an S9 and a 15000 and I interchange their feet since they’re both 9mm. I’m going to guess the S7 may be the same? I don’t know if that expands your options to a foot that’s closer to what you’re looking for.
Hope you find what you’re hunting for.

Thanks Jim. 

I have actually backed off a little on the oiling schedule on my 500e because the last time I did it according to the time frame, I could tell it did not look dry and the oil seemed to pool just a little.  With several different machine options to choose from for different projects and limited sewing time (until the end of March), it just wasn’t needing it as much. Hopefully I caught it before it went to oil slick status.

The wick in a brand new machine will be dry, since oil is applied during construction, rather than after the fact. I would apply one or two drops that will slowly migrate down to the joint. Generally you'll know when to oil based on sound or feel. Once you are used to how it sounds you'll know to oil when the sound changes. Over-oiling is far worse than under.

Skyline 7 foot

Kathy Strabel
 

I cannot seem to find a foot that fits my Skyline S7 machine. I want a clear plastic foot, like the satin foot I have, but with a much narrower space between the toes of the foot.. I would like to have one in a zig zag version, and one in a straight stitch version.  All the ones I have seen are metal and I can't see the stitch line up close to the needle. The S7 is a 9mm  width zigzag, with the snap-on foot.   Does anyone have any suggestions? I have looked at the Janome website for appropriate feet and accessories
for my S7, but it looks like maybe they don't offer what I am looking for?  Would a foot for another Janome model work?  I understand my S7 is a Category F  Janome. 
Thank you for any suggestions,

The hat hoop would be more appropriately called a hoop insert. As you know, it fits inside the B hoop on the 10001. On the 15000 the hat hoop goes inside the standard SQ14 hoop. Your 10001 insert will not fit into that space, so you will need to get the "official" 15000 hat hoop (insert).

New machine question

Pixey
 

Well my dealer made me a terrific Black Friday deal on an HD9 and don’t have to worry now about throwing my other machines out of time with my thicker hand bag projects. But I have an oiling question.

It has two oil points on it on the top. One of them obviously has a wick in it that goes down and winds around the needle shaft area. I almost had a mini-disaster with it right off the bat. The interior styrofoam had gotten broke up in shipping (this machine weighs a ton..so I am guessing it is from the box being tossed around a bit). But, I was having to pick tiny pieces of styrofoam out of every indention and crevice with my tweezers. Started to pick it out thinking it was styrofoam but realized really quickly that it was a wick and immediately pushed it back down. Fortunately I could see it in the threading slot and it makes a 1/2 loop before being “fastened” in place so no damage done. I am guessing they have had enough reports about people pulling out the wicks to put in a little slack.

The question is that it looks really dry, so I am wondering if I should oil it before use and if so, whether I should do an extra couple of drops? And how long should I give it to let it get absorbed and transmitted along the wick?

Thanks,
Pixey

I have a hat hoop that was for my MC 10001.  It fit in the B hoop to embroider hats.  My question is:  Can this hoop somehow be used with the MC15000?  Or could I somehow use the B hoop with the hat hoop in it on the 15000?  Or would I have to purchase another hat hoop?  They look the same on the website but may be a little different.  My son wants me to embroider his logo on some hats.

Does anyone still have the list of what card numbers fit the Janome 9000 and what card numbers fit the Janome 10000.  I am giving my Janome 9000 to my niece and I can't remember which cards go to which machine?  Any help would be so appreciated.

I have all the Janome threads and also Floriani threads.  I have found that the closest match of my Floriani thread to Janome #274 is  Floriani PF594.  Hope this helps.

Andrea, there was another program he wrote for organizing sewing projects and your stash. I used them both until about 10 years ago and then ran into too many problems installing and using them. I think I got that software around 2000? Is that possible? Scott gave it to me for introducing my Janome store to it and they carried it. 

Jim's is great. I have entered only about 10 threads because my thread stash is packed and ready for a move in the new year. When I unpack it I'm going to have fun adding it to my inventory.

I'm running Win 10 on my MacBook Air using VMWare. I am still trying to figure out if I can enlarge the font when I use HL. You probably don't have that problem?

I use MyStuff2Pro for my patterns, tools, etc and my sugarflower moulds etc. I would never attempt to put my thread in that. LOL  It works on my iphone and ipad so it's a great complementary program (until Jim writes us something cool to take care of our other goodies) And we have the Footbook. :-)

Lorrie, Scott (Thread Box developer) died around 2007.  I still have his program on my previous MacBookPro with XP but I can't install it on my new MacBookPro with Windows10.  I'm so happy that Jim has a new product to replace the old one with all of the new thread colors that have come out in the last 11+ years!  I just need a newer iPad to get it, but Santa is close!

I do not have the charts but looking at MBX thread colours Janome 274 is named "Tangerine". If I change thread selection to Robison Anton Poly the number is 5698 and name is Visor Gold. Madeira Rayon is number 1172 and name is Mustard. Floriana is not included in the list. Hope this helps you.

The owner/developer of that software passed away quite a while ago. Maybe early 2000’s? It was simple and it worked
