I choose an apple, as it is the monthly theme for September. Janome MBX software can read a variety of formats like: jpeg, bmp, png, pcx, wmf, emf, eps.

Changing the Fill Pattern

Now, let’s have fun by changing the weave fill pattern. Digitizer MBX offers up to 25 different weave pattern.w2. This can change the look of the embroidery as you can see on the following picture:

Different weave fill

The setting for each of the 5 parts of the original default design has been change like this:

5 parts

Every parts of the design has a different weave fill

With a software, there is always a few ways to do things but here is an easy option to change the weave fill:

  • On the resequence window (mine is on the right) choose the colors option as the picture

5 couleurs

  • Right click on the first color < red 225 < The objects details box will appear, < then choose among one of the 25 different weave fill patterns.
  • Beside the pattern choice, there is a preview window to see the effect of each of the 25  patterns before you make your choice, however, you can always change it.
  • But… there is more… the stitch spacing and the stitch length… now you are in business! All those pattern will look so different with these two adjustments.

About Céline Ross

À cause des imprévus de la vie, j'ai changé de carrière très tôt dans ma jeune vie d'adulte. Toute mon éducation scolaire, du primaire au secondaire et jusqu'au professionel, m'a été enseigné par les religieuses CND qui étaient... très exigeantes. Ces professeurs m'ont inculqué le goût de bien apprendre, l'appréciation du travail bien fait et l'envie de toujours me perfectionner. Je n'aurais jamais osé ouvrir mon École de couture sans cette formation ni cette certification. Lorsque je deviens revendeur autorisé Janome en avril 1982, la compagnie poursuit ma formation côté machine à coudre et je deviens Éducatrice. Mon travail est varié; je donne des formations aux marchands Janome pour l'Est du Canada et d'ailleurs. Je participe à des Salons, à Janome Institute, je publie un cyber bulletin, j'ai fondé un 'Club de broderie' à Montréal en 1994 et, depuis l'année dernière, chez d'autres marchands. Je confectionne des échantillons avec les nouveaux produits que Janome ne cesse de développer. Et, depuis aujourd'hui, je blogue ! Après toutes ces années dans ce domaine, je garde toujours le même enthousiasme à apprendre et à transmettre mes connaissances. Janome est à la fine pointe de la technologie moderne et ne cesse de me faire progresser.
