The Osawa Collection
Janome is very pleased to announce the release of its latest PC-Design CD embroidery design collection created by Kiyomi Osawa. Ms. Osawa is a highly acclaimed Japanese embroidery artist who specializes in a manual machine embroidery technique sometimes referred to as thread painting. By varying stitch length, direction and thread color this unique technique allows for a subtle shading which gives a gorgeous life-like quality to the finished embroidery unlike any other we have seen.

Janome, through careful consultation with Ms. Osawa, has captured this delicate art in a way that all can replicate and enjoy!

The first release in a series of three, Flowers and Butterflies, will be followed by Birds, and Fishes (incl. ocean life). We hope you will enjoy incorporating this touch of elegance to your creations!

MC11000 Version 1.3 update program
New Memory Craft 11000 Version 1.3 program with many exciting improvements is now available. This update features these major improvements:
  • A 'combine' and 'un-combine' function in the edit screen - this will give you so much more flexibility. It will greatly speed up the production of layouts that are made up of repeated components.
  • The very welcome return of the 'Favorite Stitch' function - just like the Memory Craft 10001. The default stitch width and length can be altered by switching on the 'favorite stitch' option in the SET menu, re-set the stitch and it is automatically registered as the default setting.
  • Even better 'Resume' function - interrupt your sewing using the 'stop' key and you can resume your sewing at exactly the same point as you left off - this means the machine returns to the last color, even the last stitch as when you switched the machine off.
  • RE Hoop (rectangular) and Hat Hoop capability - The RE Hoop is the same size as the Memory Craft 10001's B Hoop therefore this also opens up the opportunity of using the popular Hat Hoop - both of these hoops are optional. The new Hat Hoop icon on the machine will automatically move the carriage to the center of the hat embroidery point and the embroidery area will be displayed on the screen.
  • A new basting stitch is included which enables you to secure a piece of fabric too small to hoop, to another larger piece or to stabilizer that is large enough to be hooped. This feature is also very useful to prevent puckering when sewing a small design in the middle of the hoop.
  • Gutermann/Sulky and Robison Anton rayon threads have now been added to the thread brands in the SET menu.
  • Two popular stitches have been added to the utility mode, the serpentine stitch and another blanket stitch.
  • Bi-directional dialogue between the machine and the PC is now possible. The MC11000 can now save designs directly back to a PC from the machine.
  • The graphic image on screen of the stitch in twin needle mode - that is, two lines of stitching not just one - is now available for all patterns suited for twin needle sewing.

For current DigitizerPro Version 1.0/1.0Q owners, Janome provides a free update to Version 2.0. Please contact your Janome dealer or distributor for further information or click here to download

The newest addition to the JANOME PC-Design CD/Card collections, the Blackwork Collection contains over 50 elegant blackwork designs including dorders, spot designs, flowers, insects and animals.

Janome was honored to collaborate with distinguished Elizabethan blackwork designer Leon Conrad to create this exciting collection of geometric, historical and modern designs.

Blackwork dates back to the Middle Ages, deginning as geometric patterns and later developing to include nature-inspired designs and incorporate silver or gold threads as well as other colors and shapes.
