The monogram section of the Horizon Link Software that comes with your Janome Horizon MC 15000 Quiltmaker machine contains eleven fonts for lettering in addition to three Cyrillic fonts. The compiling of a text message is done directly on the screen of the computer with the use of the keyboard.


In this tab are two icons that are often overlooked and yet they contain several patterns different from those built into the machine.

2 icons

‘Normal Sew’ Icon opens to a section which offer 102 patterns that can be embroidered as a single pattern,  a continuous line, or as a combination.

Normal Sew

The “Border” icon  section opens to offer 46 patterns that can be combined to be embroidered on a narrow part such as a cuff, a  pocket, a blouse button placket, etc.


The ‘space’ key is used to add spaces between patterns. It is possible to enlarge and reduce the patterns by 20% directly in the grid window.


In order to visualize each of the patterns it is a good idea to  embroider them: then you will always have them as reference to  make your choice easier.

If you have Janome’s  MBX5 Digitizer software you can import the text design and use the  editing functions to create even more text pattern layout options.

Visit your local Janome Authorized Dealer to participate in a demonstration or course on the Horizon Link Suite software.

About ymenear

I have been sewing my entire life. I love sewing of all types but recently I have focused on quilting and machine embroidery. I am an educator for quilting and embroidery design software and I own and operate a machine embroidery club that teaches students how to use their machine effectively while creating their own unique projects. I love travel and getting to know people from different regions and seeing how they create projects with their machines.
