Goodness, I just realized I had not said very much at all (if anything) about the FABULOUS new Janome Digitizer MBX software that was launched at the same time as the new Janome Horizon MC12000.

JANOME DIGITIZER MBX is available as an upgrade or a full package of software

This new software literally blew my socks off. It contained SO much more than I had dreamed of and was expecting.  Yes, it adds the hoops and many features necessary for the new Janome Horizon MC12000, but it does SO much more. You do not have to have the new top of the line machine to appreciate just how incredible this software is: it is compatible with ALL of our embroidery machines and it includes Corel Essentials version 5. NOW we have a superior graphics component right here in the software so that all those clever and easy graphics techniques are now part of Digitizer and will make creating new designs and adding graphics to any design a walk in the park!

I am starting to do Software seminars at selected Janome dealers across my territory today so you might like to check if your local Janome dealer has been certified to sell this new software and whether they will be hosting a software seminar in the coming weeks & months.  Some that are planned are as follows:

Tom’s Sewing Machines, Surrey, BC – 28 November 2011

Langley Vacuum & Sewing, Langley, BC – January – date to be finalized

Sawyer’s Sewing Center; Victoria, BC – January – date to be finalized.

Just a teaser of some of the new features in this software

a little more information to "tempt" you to check out this software

One of the almost unbelievable facts about this new software is that virtually all Janome Digitizer owners (of previous versions) are able to upgrade to this software for one price!! I had to check this directly with the software developer down at Institute in Orlando as I figured that was simply too good to be true…….but is IS true: so long as you have a USB dongle with Digitizer 10000, or have Digi pro version 1, Digi MB version 2 or 3; you can upgrade.

I was also simply blown away by what is in this upgrade: way too much to go into now but I got SO excited when we had our training on this software in Orlando. It is really quite something.

A huge bonus with your purchase of both the upgrade to MBX and the full package is that you receive a DVD Tutorial FREE. This is hosted by Trevor Conquergood http://www.sunsetstitches.com/Home.html  This effectively means that your have your own dedicated software teacher in your sewing room as you can play that DVD over & over until you feel comfortable using the software. Many of you are familiar with Trevor’s teaching. If you are not, you have a treat in store – he will really make the software come alive for you.

SO…..do yourself a favour today: check out Digitizer MBX at your local Janome dealer who has been certified to sell the software.

      Hi Roberta,

      We recommend you discuss your software needs with the Janome dealer where you purchased your MB4. They should be able to advise you about the options open to you with Janome Digitizing software as well as our Artistic Sewing Suite software. You can also look up information on http://www.janome.com & http://www.artisticsewingsuite.com.
      Do consider that if you wish to digitize logo’s for a business that you are going to have to probably buy a comprehensive program and dedicate a good deal of time to learning the software to become proficient at digitizing automatically as well as manually – depending on the logo & your future customer’s needs. We would recommend that you research this purchase of software carefully and be sure that what you buy will match your current and future needs.

      Janome Canada.
