Janome has released a new kit for the Memory Craft 11000 Special Edition and Memory Craft 11000 Version 2.01.
In addition to a new AcuFil hoop, this kit is full of handy tools to help give your quilting professional results.
1. Improvements and changes to AcuFil Quilting System
- New Square hoop! The new AcuFil Square Quilting Hoop (ASQ hoop) is 180 x 180 mm—large enough to quilt a six-inch quilt block with room to spare.
- More AcuFil Calculator features for easier layouts and design combinations: The new improvements take quilting beyond adding stippling to an entire quilt with features such as single pattern insertion and direct same size pattern creation to make combining quilting patterns across and within your layout easier than ever. Improved AcuFil Calculator interface and new margin options give more control and flexibility for design sizes but leaves the work to the Calculator.
