I first saw this tool demo’ed at a sewing show and knew right away that I HAD to have it! I bought one and then we arranged to get these so that you can get yours at your local Janome dealer here in Canada.
I have been showing this NEW handy dandy tool during my travels and the response has been as I KNEW it would be: good! The customers are agreeing with me that it makes aligning designs for hoop embroidery very easy: so continuous embroidery designs such a borders; complex multi-hooping embroidery designs on blocks; making sure a design is in just the spot you require such for placement on a t-shirt or jacket; table cloths etc – the PAL makes it so quick & easy to position accurately and neatly.
NOT only for positioning or aligning embroideries, you can also use the PAL to line up appliques (for example getting an applique positioned perfectly in the center of a block).
I have also used the PAL to shine a red laser line onto the bed of my machine to use as a seam guide!
So even if you do not do much embroidery, you will find this NEW tool very useful.
