    Janome 15000 -iPAD connectivity!!! Wow!

    A few weeks ago I was talking to a Janome dealer who wanted to sell her Janome Horizon 12000 floor model. The price she quoted was incredible! I was salivating.....ready to pull the trigger on it. Texted DH and he nixed it. Reality check! I patted my 9700 when I got home.


    THEN....i get the email today...the NEW JANOME 15000 with IPAD connectivity!!! Now....i know that machine is waaaaaaay out of reach for my budget! Sigh....

    But, just thnk you might now get the 12000 for an even better price. I was talking to my dealer this past Saturday and he even mentioned a fantastic price on the show models of the 12000. I love my 12000. I got it last year after the Houston quilt show for a good price, but the price for a quilt show 12000 this year sounded even better. I'm staying with my 12000.

    I just got an e-mail from Janome about the 15000 - looks awesome! However, way beyond my budget right now. Will have to stick with my little 6600P - which I love!

    I don't understand the need for ipad conectivity unless they have new embroidery programs compatible with it

    From what I understand, you can plan your design, but you still have to send it through horizon link. So you still need a laptop or pc with a disk drive. Personally, I don't need to watch my stitches stitch out if I walk away. If I want to watch, I'll stay with the machine. I thought one of the features was that you didn't need to watch it every second. Waiting to see other details on it, but I'm staying with what I've got.

    I can't see how the iPad connects to the janome. I have just had a terrible time try to link the iPad with a printer. Idid not have a wps button on the router. So after a. Few conversations with sky to eventually find a person who agreed my router did not have the button I was given new hub with button at no cost. How would you link to he computer they have leads not wifi .
    I have noticed that sewing machines everyone enjoy are very rarely Available at low prices. I should go or what you can afford. You could always exchange that later for a more up to date machine.

    I hope your DH had a good reason to tell you no and not just an excuse of you don't need it. I'm sure one will come your way. Just when I know the new machine I want another one comes on the market. Baby Loc has a brand new one now.

    The iPads connect with the janome thru a wireless Bluetooth connection.

    I don't understand the purpose of them connecting though. You can't install software on a tablet so I don't see what all benefits it would hold. Even if there was an app, the limitations would be great I'd assume. I don't even connect my pc to my machine. I put all of my designs onto an USB and then take them to my machine. I will set up my laptop by my machine especially when I'm doing color changes and not using the same threads as the orginal design calls for. My software allows me to tell it or the machine to pull all colors from my inventory that I have on hand no matter what company that makes it. I would really love to see how the Ipad works with it and what purpose it serves.

    This is the time of the yr that all of the new goodies are showing up. Viking unviels their new machines next month, they have 5 of them, one with a 16in harp. Plus the new 6D Pro is being offered. I love technology and how it can really enhance our lives, as frustrating as it is at times too. If anyone knows how the ipad interacts I'd love to hear.

    I agree with you 100%. Seems to me all you get to do is watch it, not worth the extra money for that. As far as the size if the screen on the machine, I configure my designs on my laptop, so no big deal to me. Go to Janomes website and it might answer your questions. Or, go to the janome 12000 yahoo group. They talk about the 15000 there also. I still want to look at it and touch it, but for the money, it won't be following me home.

    I have the 12000 and still trying to figure out the setting for a scant 1/4 inch and think the needle threader is sub par for the amount of money I spent for the machine. What setting do you use for the scant? I move the needle over to the right as far as it will go and think this should not be this way. Any help from the 12000 owners is appreciated. No update is going to happen here!!

    I have the 7700 and accidentally discovered that I could get a perfect scant 1/4" seam, by using the wrong foot! It was driving me crazy, until I realized what was causing it. I believe it was the Satin Stitch foot, which I'd accidentally left on the machine; the little recessed area kept pulling my fabric over, just enough to miss the 1/4".

    I use the 1/4" acufeed foot, move the needle to the right til it's where I want it. No update at my house either. Do you really need 200,000 stitches per minute? I don't.

    Just curious: what would be a "fantastic price" for the Janome 12000?? I have never looked at that machine since I have a Janome 6600P and a Janome 350e embroidery machine....however, I am planning on going to the Houston show in 2014 and would keep a look-out for good deals then

    I would think that even though the "machine" would do 200,000 stiches you'd have a problem getting the thread and the needles to also handle it. Most of the time I can let my Diamond go at full speed but depending on the thread and the density and the fabric or stabilizer I also have to slow it down at times. Since the thread and needle markets aren't going to be changing the way they make those will the all play together well. If not, how often will you really be able to go that fast. It's like having a car that goes 150 MPH but only drive on local highways. You will never (or hardly ever) be able to use it to the fullest capabilities. So why pay the extra money. I have no new machine in site since mine is less than a yr and top of the line until next month when the new Vikings come out. I will love looking and seeing what is all available out there but that's as far as it'll go. I can't even afford to drool at this time.

    I have the AcuEdit in my iPad and it is very cool App. However cannot be used without the Janome 15000 :-)
    I also found DRAWings Snap, available for free on the App Store, and can be used with iphone, ipad, for all embroidery machines. Connects wireless with all machines with USB port, by using any wireless gadget like AirStash

    The future is on those app for smart phones and tablets. Janome opens new frontiers for all to follow...

    Hi Diane....good to see your smiling face on QB! My new 8200 actually has an automatic setting for 1/4 inch which also adjusts the stitch length. No embrodiery though. Have you mentioned your frustrations to Bill?

    I have the 6600p and love it. A friend got the 7700 about when I got mine and I wasn't that all impressed with it for the BIG difference in price. the deeper throat was about it. I just bought the HQ Sweetsixteen sit down and have about half the money invested in the two of those for the price of one Janome 7700 or the 15000.

    Well, the janome 15000's info has bee officially released, and my 12000 still does all and more than I want. It's funny though, I don't see any prices mentioned, but you can preorder on the Internet. I already have the accufil hoop and love it. So I don't see that I'm missing out on anything, except spending more money that I can spend on fabric.

    What machine or software does this?? I have a Janome MC9700 and have only had it a couple of months, however I am salivating over the newer machines.....always wishing for something I don't have and know I can't afford!!

    Janome is getting a little bit much with the release of machines lately. I have the 11000SE and the 7700 and am perfectly happy with both and have no intentions of spending upwards of $12,000 for the new 15000. That's ridiculous in today's economy.

    I have 5D Pro but Viking includes an organizier with thier machines which does a lot. In the organizier it has a thread manager, I enter all of my threads by company and the thread #(color) and then when I pull up a design in either the pro or the organizer, I click on color tone and then tell it if I want it to pull the colors from a company different than the one the creator of the design calls for, normally instead of chosing one company since I have threads from different companies I tell it to pull the colors from "My Threads" and it will choose the colors the closet to the orginal ones the creator of the design chose. It sure makes my life a whole lot easier because as we all know, different monitors and even different thread companines don't always show the thread as they appear. This takes the guess work out of it for me, I look at the color changes and it tells me the color, the brand and the thread #. This also acts like a shopping list because I can print out "My Threads" and it tells me what I have on hand so that I don't buy duplicates by accident.

    The new Royal sounds great so far from what Viking has shown,which isn't much. They are releasing small bits of infor on it at a time. I've gotten two new (slightly used) machines in the past two yrs and they were great deals but as much as I might want one with the latest bells and whistles, I'll wait. I still have so much to learn on my machine and software before I look at learning a whole new one; plus the cost is a big factor too.

    Hey Esther, I did mention to Bill and he did not have an answer. Bonnie also moves the needle as far right as it will go. It is a mystery, I guess. Peggy Laury uses a tool to find a scant an then uses mole skin on the machine to sew the perfect scant 1/4 inch. We all have the 12000!

    Thanks for all the info. I just wish I knew all the threads available. I have Digitizer, Jr. from Janome and there are a bunch of threads listed there and colors. I have been trying to figure out how to work the conversion chart, etc. May just have to write my own program (yeah, right!!)..... I have a number of spools of Janome thread which I purchased this year right after I got my machine, only to learn Janome is going out of the thread business!! Oh well, back to the drawing board.

    Hello everyone! Since I am at Janome Institute I thought I would let you know that the new Horizon 15000 is an exciting addition for Janome! The IPad is so that you can take it and go off to other parts of your house, yard, etc (as long as you have wi-fi connectivity) you can see where your machine is! If you need to change the thread, the bobbin or whatever else needs to be done!! When the Horizon is released, an IPad is in the works to be given with the machine!! Don't quote me, but that is the scoop from the show! It is so exciting here with all the new stuff they are doing! Wish all of you could see the Horizon 15000, it so much easier to use than its predecessor! Watch for it in Oct!
