You will find a good number of posts on the Artistic Edge Digital cutter in the archives of janomelife. Here is just one of them in which our Janome Canada Artisan Kim Jamieson-Hirst outlines what this cutter does.  It is easy to do a search in the search box to the right of the screen to find these posts. Most were focusing on the 15 inch cutter with its 15 inch square cutting mats and WIFI capability.

However, today we bring you the ease and joys of owning a 12 inch Artistic Edge Digital cutter…….it is essentially the same as the 15 inch cutter except that the mats are 12 inch square and there is no WIFI connection. No matter, there is a USB cable to connect the computer to the cutter and it includes the same Simple Cut software which is incredible and gives you all you need to “drive” your digital cutter.  And a great benefit is the price point……you will be pleasantly surprized at the deal your local Janome dealer may be able to offer you on this equipment.

Cut fabric, paper, card stock, template materials for crystals, stencil plastic, vinyl (self- adhesive and iron – on); wood, metal and more…….add practical and labour saving techniques to what you already do with your sewing and/or embroidery machine…….Have you seen how this can cut applique fabric as well as digitizing the applique stitch to stitch down the applique in the hoop? If not……well you need to see this. I can quite honestly say that I doubt I will ever do applique any other way!

Text and crown were cut on the Artistic Edge 15 Digital cutter and appliqued with a satin stitch. The embroidered block set on point was embroidered on the Janome Mc15000 and is a Kennys Kreations design

Just one of the many hundreds of applique stitches which can be used for applique-in-the-hoop with Simple Cut software. I really like this one…looks a bit like lace.

Snowflake was a cut out with the Artistic Edge digital cutter and then appliqued-in-the-hoop with stitches digitized in the Simple Cut software which comes included with the Artistic Digital cutter.

Have you Edged yet? If not, you are missing out on a fabulous tool for adding so much to your sewing, embroidery and crafting. Visit you local Janome Dealer today for more information.

    So nice to see a post on the Artistic Edge.
    PLEASE post more. I feel it is a fantastic unit but not enough training for it.
    If there is training please let me know where

    The starburst (blue and yellow) pillow at the top of this post just sent out-where can I find pattern and info on it? Would love to have it!

      Are you referring to the blue & gold pillow on the right next to the cutter? If so that is a pillow with a crystal pattern: crystals fused to the pillow with a technique on the Edge cutter. It is not a quilted or embroidered pillow. And no, sorry, we don’t have the pattern for that.
