Here is a cute project idea using AcuSketch App and the Janome MC15000 Quilt Maker

The AcuSketch app is a fast favourite of mine…..Just love being able to doodle on my iPad and then instantaneously send it to my Janome Mc15000 or Janome Skyline S9 to stitch out whatever I doodled. SEW much fun.

I made a very cute project as a gift for my little one last Christmas. I had been asked a bit earlier in the year to make a duvet cover for her newly redecorated bedroom so I saved the left over fabric used to make the duvet cover. This little one is a prolific & budding artist and is always scribbling or sketching away at her craft table. I asked her for one of her drawings and was given one of a happy monkey.

I took a photo with my iPad of her drawing and then brought that into the Janome AcuSketch app screen to use as a backdrop: I used the very handy dandy Janome Stylus pen to outline her drawing and then instantly turned it into stitches.

Notice the little wheel at the tip, the JANOME logo and screw on cap to protect the tip of the stylus…….everything you need for AcuSketching!

This design was then sent wirelessly to my Janome Mc15000 where I stitched it onto the white fabric leftover from one side of the duvet cover. I stitched it in a cerise pink colour to match the border I used on her pillow although after she was done, it did not matter what colour I had done the embroidery in!

On Christmas morning, once she had unwrapped this gift, she dashed off to get her felt tipped pens and set to work colouring in her monkey….right away. I think it is something quite special for them to see their very own artwork turned into stitches which they can colour in or paint to their heart’s content. I think it is safe to assume this particular Christmas gift was a hit!

Thank you Janome for AcuSketch App and giving us the ability to do so many fun and creative things!!

    Hi, I hope this gets to someone that can help. I would like to get the “Janome how to” site however; I can never get any of the helpful applications on my iPad. Can you send me these direct so that I can store and save these for future reference.
    Thank you Doreen.

      Hi Doreen

      No, sorry we cannot send the apps directly to you. You have to buy them in the Apple App Store although many of them are free so in reality cost nothing. But you must have an Apple ID/ iTunes account in order to access these apps and download them to your iPad. I think it would be wise to contact your local authorized Janome dealer to assist you with this.

      Hi Joanne

      Please contact any of our authorized Janome dealers in Washington State. They can order it for you if they don’t already have it on stock.
