15000 and DIME Weightless Quilter


Pixey
 

I have noticed that all the videos for the DIME Weightless Quilter are done on embroidery machines with hoops driven from the side. Has anyone used it with a 15000 and if so, are there any issues with positioning the back to clear the embroidery arm?

Thanks,
Pixey

Pixey,
I have used it with the 15000 with no issues.  I have my machine on a conference table so there is a lot of room behind the arm too but I don't think it would be an issue on a smaller table.
I think Diane uses it successfully too.

I haven’t used the DIME weightless, but my husband put batons and brass kitchen cabinet handles on the ceiling of my sewing room (my room is tiny) and I hang bungees of different lengths with a heavy duty clip on the end. They are all spaced differently so that I can move them if I need to, and that takes the weight of the quilt. I’m still getting used to it and it takes a bit of adjustments. I might get him to put up more batons and handles. But it works ok. It’s the weightless idea, but hung from the ceiling instead of floor or desk standing which I can’t accommodate, barely enough room for me and no spare floor space.

Kathy, he can be but doesn’t always finish the job, he gets distracted and like me and quilting has lots of WIPs (work in progress)

I made a weightless quilter with a garment rack on wheels, bungee cords and clamps. I could use one more bungee but this is working great in the meantime. There are other weightless quilters on line less expensive and other ideas.

Thanks for the different perspectives.  At this point, I already have too many other projects in progress and am not looking for a DIY solution.  In the past, I have mostly done smaller quilting projects (wall hangings, newborn quilts, etc.). However, I am anticipating a need to do larger quilting projects as I get more involved with my local guild.  My sewing room is pretty tight on space, so my preference is for a compact out- of-the-box solution, which is why I asked about the DIME product.

Plus my husband is asking for ideas for Christmas gifts…

Pixey, I can’t imagine the DIME Weightless Quilter wouldn’t work with a Janome embroidery sewing machine for QITH.  We might have to set it a little further behind the embroidery unit or a smidgeon more toward the end in the machine to allow room for the hoop motion, but I’ve looked at that stand myself more than once because I think it would work just fine with my 15000.  It would work exactly the same for line quilting as the ad pix show being done on other machines.

Took my 12000 to shop. Hoping it is a minor problem. 
Thinking if I need to replace the machine I might go to embroidery only.
Any thoughts

Pauline,
If I had it to do now (and while I love my 15000) I would go for the 550e and the M7.  :)

Thank you so much. I think I agree
 Does the 550e have same hoops and is the quality of the embroidery the same or better?

You would probably still need a second machine for sewing and finishing.

I am a big janome fan. Got a 3500 and a skyline 5. I just do not want to invest in another combo machine. Love my 12000. The embroidery is just beautiful.

This might be of help to some of you who have trouble with the weight of the quilt.
