Make Labels to Organize EVERYTHING!

I’ve always believed in the saying “a place for everything and everything in it’s place. Labels make organizing quick and easy, and with the help of the fabulous Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000, Janome’s Top-of-the-Line 3-in-1 machine, it’s also quick and easy to embroider a beautiful label.

 OUR JANOME SUMMER LOOK BOOK HAS BEEN POSTED ONLINE!!  I sewed a beach blanket with a big, functional checkerboard in the centre so the kids could use it to play. IT’S PICNIC SEASON! Part 1  I cut pool noodles to use as the game pieces and sewed an accompanying tote bag to hold them when not in use. A BIG label on the side of the bag makes locating – and replacing – the game pieces easy, no questions asked.IT’S PICNIC SEASON! Part 2

A few simple steps is all it took!

Since the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000 is ideal for both regular sewing AND embroidery, there is a mode for each, represented in the two sewing machine icons on the bottom of the extra-large touch screen.

Regular sewing/sewing mode  is in Red and Embroidery is Blue. This is indicated by the sewing machine icon in the top left corner of the screen. In this case, the background behind the sewing machine is blue so it’s in Embroidery mode. Incidentally, notice the little WiFi symbol in the top right corner? Janome’s Memory Craft 15000 is THE first sewing machine to be CERTIFIED WiFi.

Push the ABC button and the screen will change to a list of the 11 Fonts from which to choose. I scrolled through and choose “First Grade” which was perfect!

Once the desired font is selected, the screen will change to where the text can be entered and edited. Even the orientation of how it will embroider in the hoop can be changed from horizontal to vertical.

After entering the text and pressing the OK button, the screen will change and a message will pop up which indicates which of the 5 hoops included with the  Janome Memory Craft 15000 should be used. Also indicated on the screen is which presser foot to use – for embroidery it is the “P” foot. I love when a machine does the thinking for me and won’t let me make a mistake! The machine even calculates the number of stitches and how long it will take.

If further editing is desired, simply press the Home icon in the bottom left of the screen to go back to the main embroidery screen, as seen earlier.

The Edit button is below the ABC button – the grid symbol which will then appear on the screen once it’s touched.

Use the included stylus, conveniently housed on the right side of the machine, or simply touch the screen to position your lettering exactly as you wish. In this case, I wanted my label to embroider in the enter of my fabric so I positioned the word over the centre horizontal crosshair of the grid.

The grid on the screen corresponds to the grid on the plastic positioning template which fits in to the centre of the hoop.

After editing is done, touch OK and the screen switches to the Ready to Sew screen. All that remains is to hoop the fabric (use appropriate stabilizer), attach the hoop, and press the Start button. You’re off!

Simply sit back and enjoy the process as you think of more ways to create and organize. Think of how much more time you’ll have to sew!

      Hi Carol,

      Do you mean the Artistic Edge 15 Digital cutter? If so, please do a search on janomelife (search box on home page). There are many posts on this equipment and software. I don’t think we have a post planned for the immediate future offering the same as this information as here but there are plenty of other similar posts already published.
