The question is: What is Tapered stitching? How can I automatically taper my stitches at an angle at the beginning and/or the end of rows of stitching?
Think in terms of lovely satin stitching with 45 degree mitered corners on a square applique….. Or pretty decorative stitching tapering to a corner; point or at an angle as in the pic’s above and below?
Janome Australia offers some information on this link.
Tapering opens up all sorts of wonderful embellishment possibilities as it gives control over how the stitches will form at the beginning and end of rows. Choose from a variety of angles and stitch options.
This tapered stitch function is available on the Janome Horizon MC15000 Quilt Maker and the Janome Skyline S9. Ask your local Janome dealer to show you this incredibly useful machine decorative and utility stitching feature…….super easy to access as the tapered stitching icon is located right on the touch screen. Please refer to this tutorial by Janome Education Coordinator, Nancy Fiedler, which offers good information about how to do Tapered stitches:
