I used a card reader to put the design onto the card that went in the sewing machine.  Is there something different?

Re: Glass Fusible Beads

Marsha
 

I have used “Beads 2 Fuse” in the past with success.  They are very tiny clear glass beads that you use a double sided fusible to apply over the top of embroidery, etc.  They don’t melt, but do overlay the design to accent it.  I used them on mermaid tails, etc but can’t find the pictures...
I framed the items, so there really wasn’t any wear or laundering so I don’t know how well would hold up over time & use.

Re: Customizer 10000 plus ver.3

You will need to install Customizer 10000 V3 on your new PC. It should work without much fuss, though you may need to right click the icon and choose to run it in compatibility mode. However you cannot connect your Windows 10 computer to the 10001 by USB, as there is no 64-bit driver for that. What you can do is connect the USB adapter that you use on the XP computer to load cards to your Windows 10 box. The driver for that should be built into Windows 10 and will install automatically the first time you plug it in.

Customizer 10000 plus ver.3

Shirley Taylor
 

My computer died and I now have to figure out what programs to put on my new PC with Win 10 Office 365. My Janome 10001 is rather old but not used often.  I would like to introduce my g granddaughter to it so need to have the customizer in place to use the downloaded designs that I have. Now I do not remember what the problem was with the 64 bit drive, but could never get the program from Janome to make it work  onto the computer .  Will it work on the new computer?.  I have the designs that I had downloaded from Embroidery library on the new one, but they do not open and I assume it is because I do not have the customizer .Since I have to copy the design to a flash drive and put it on an older computer with XP to get the files onto the card my thinking is to just move the files to the old computer.  It works fine, but can not use on the internet.  I really lost interest in using it when I had to get my computer that just died as it was 64 bit drive and I could not get the designs to the machine with the cord.  I am not too skilled with computers, and am overwhelmed with all the new things.  But this is a perfectly good machine for what I did with it and I have a lots of designs just never got around to doing anything with them after I had to do the work around to get them to the machine.

The Artistic Edge software is “Windows” compatible. If you have software that allows you to run a Window program, you won’t be able to use the software that comes with the Edge cutter.

Learning the 15000 and using the USB flash drive

Patricia Ward
 

For Elizabeth,
When first getting this wonderful machine, it does seem overwhelming. I see that you have the Janome Apps and I am hoping that does include Diane and Jim’s App named My 15000. This is the best way to learn everything about this machine. You can first read the explanation and then watch the video. If need be then go to your machine with the written explanation in front of you and then try to work through that step. You can always watch the video again.
Part of that app bundle is the FootBook which also is very helpful for the use of some of the special feet and accessories like the quilt binder...( but not right away)

And if you are a quilter, you will love the Quilt in the Hoop app... but here again learn the machine first because there are things to learn with this app.

As to the size of the USB, I have been using a 2GB and no larger! If you were to load the entire drive with designs you would be surprised how many that is. I periodically will empty mine to folders on my computer so that I can easily go back and find one design I love. And if you drag and drop files to folders or to the Embf on the USB you will find that a very easy method. I personally can’t use the WiFi on the machine as I live in the boonies with very slow iffy WiFi. and i have used this 2GB flash drive method for the 5 yrs I have had my machine and am very happy with it. I did the same when I had my 11000.

I hope this has helped a tad. Sorry I didn’t take time to write sooner to help you. Somehow time gets away too quickly.

 Hi Jim, Thanks so much for the quick reply and I sure will try to send relevant messages together. as you said. It must be so frustrating for you with un-related messages strung together ! I tried to send a message directly to you earlier, but it did not go through, so I needed some way to ask yo a question... sorry for bunching unlike messages together.   Thanks again ! 
 
 This is how  I  have been importing  designs to a USB. First I select my format , JEF  for Janome, then download one of them them to my computer, then I go to my Downloads to find that design number & physically drag & drop into the USB  that has been formatted & in my computer. I only do one design at  a time. I do not know what number of GB USB to buy for the Janome 3.0 . Perhaps I should stay using  2-8 GB .. Will 16 GB work ?.

Large USB drives will work, it just takes longer for the machine to process them. Drag & drop onto the USB drive will work ONLY if you drop it in a folder which is inside the EMB folder on the USB. Until you are used to how it works I would suggest you always drop your designs into the EmbF folder inside the EMB folder.

 I just had my machine updated..now that shop has just  closed in Taylors ,SC
Now several  dumb questions.. Do I need to have the cable plugged into the Janome when I have a USB stick in which I'm trying to send designs to ? I keep re-reading that part...

No. The cable needs to be plugged in ONLY when you are using it to send designs.

I'm note sure I use EMBLink . ...Can you tell me what that is ?

The EmbLink Tool is the first choice on the Horizon Link Suite menu.

I have all the Janome Apps on my i pad  I was looking today for my original CD that came with my machine, can't find it ! . Is it necessary if I buy another computer  or i pad.?

Yes, you will need it if you ever have to reinstall Horizon Link Suite. Never needed for iPad.
It is impossible to ever contact Janome but I do have my machine registered with the serial number ., so I really appreciate your help on matters that seem so important to sewing with confidence.I hope to get there.  I did receive Honorable Mention this Spring on my first ever quilt entry..

When posting a question or request to the list, it's super-easy to just reply to whatever list email you happen to be looking at. However this creates a post the probably has no relationship to the topic you are replying to. Instead of using the "Reply" button of your email program, scroll to the bottom of the email you're reading and click on "New Topic". This will keep topics in separate threads, making it easier for others to follow, and also easier to find if searching later.

Thanks!

USB use on 15000

Jim Stutsman
 

There are two ways to put designs on a USB flash drive. You can plug it into your computer directly, in a USB port, or you can plug it into the machine and use a cable or WiFi to send the design from your computer to the USB. Horizon Link Suite will use either one. The File Manager in the EmbLink Tool may be what you are using. When you send a design to the USB drive, that's what it does. It does not open the design for stitching. You need to open the design on the USB drive using the Open File button at the bottom of the machine screen. This can lead to some confusion because of how the machine uses this function.
  • By default, the machine opens the EMB folder on the USB drive (which it put there during format) and the EmbF folder (also put there by format) to show the designs on the drive. If you put a design in a different folder you can still open it, but you have to use the slider at the right side of the screen to navigate to the correct folder. There are two rules that the machine lives by: 1) All designs must be in a folder. That folder contains only designs, no other folders. 2) All design folders MUST be in the EMB folder at the top level of the USB drive. The machine will not look at any other folders.
  • There are 4 sources of designs on the machine: 1) Built-in, 2) Machine memory, 3) USB 1, 4) USB 2. You can also send designs over the cable directly to the machine's Ready to Sew screen.
  • When opening designs from a file, they are grouped by the size hoop they use. If you have a design that uses the GR hoop it won't show on the SQ14 page. You will have to turn the page to see it.
  • The machine displays only 8 characters for file and folder names. "My Favorite 1" and "My Favorite 2" will both show on screen as "My Favor".
Once a design has been opened to the Ready to Sew screen you can unplug the USB drive. You don't need to use the cable if you put designs on the USB when it is plugged into your computer.

Hi Jim,  I have been using the 15000 App & it is great !  I  have been trying to get  more information using the HorizonLink  I am having trouble with getting my purchased designs on a USB stick.I have my USB cord & formatted stick, now the question is do I keep the machine hooked to the computer with the stick in it or not ? I have tried all combinations a & nothing seems to work. I open the design in the JEF format , pull  up HorizonLink & tap send to the USB,  or the machine,,,  
Any further instructions will be greatly appreciated.
