Artistic Digitizer and Halloween


Applications for the free trial code have now closed but if you got your code, you still have access to use the software and play to your heart’s content until 31st October……don’t waste a minute of creative embroidery time!!

Did you know that the Janome Canada Education team are offering wonderful hands-on Artistic Digitizer classes through participating Janome Canada dealers at this time. It is a 3 part series of 2 hours per class = 6 hours and includes a set of notes for each part.  These are paid classes  (which must be booked through applicable dealers.) As we are into part 2 already, you may wish to play “catch up” or wait until the next time we offer these classes.  If you are interested in attending these excellent classes to further your Artistic Digitizer learning, please send a comment in the box below and we will send you information about where you may book to attend these classes. 

Today we have another creative possibility using Artistic Digitizer software. Halloween is just around the corner so here is a fun design to try with your trial offer of Artistic Digitizer.

It is possible to insert a clipart image and easily convert it into embroidery stitches. We offer this step by step:

New > Tools > Clip Art Library > Insert a clip art > Fruits09 > Insert > Slide/Drop. It is that easy; the pumpkin is automatically turned into embroidery stitches!!

Notice there are some spots in the green stitching (shown in the red circle)…….. we need to fix this to make the pumpkin image perfect.

Select Edit Nodes

Click on the red square nodal point – Stretch this point to join the base of the pumpkin.

It’s Simple!

Select the stalks and choose a colour in the colour option box.

Note: The order of the stitch out in the Sequence menu – Move the sequence of the brown stalk to last: Select sequence 6 > Right click the section > Order.

The usual color of the pumpkin is, of course, bright orange, but there are also yellows, reds, whites, and even blue, green and grey! Here I chose the thread color Janome 273 (Honey Dew)

Select the 1-2-3-4-5 sequences in the Sequence menu > Click on the #273-colored pencil; A real pumpkin!

This little exercise shows the simplicity of the software, but… there are so many other techniques that we will never run out of projects to create!!!

    Hi Anita

    I have followed up on your behalf. The instructions on our website and on the Janome America website were quite clear: if you did not receive either a confirmation email after you submitted an application to get an access code, or the email with the code, it was your responsibility to contact Tech Support about this. The first I heard from you was 17th October after the application period had closed. I did suggest at that time to contact Tech Support although the applications had already closed. There was also advice about checking your spam and junk folders.

    Unfortunately, we cannot assist at this stage as the application period closed weeks ago and the expiry of the access period is coming up soon. We are not giving out anymore access codes.

    I am so disappointed!! I applied for a free access code at least two weeks ago and never heard back. I guess I will just have to go with a different software program. I so wanted to try it to see if I like it. Bummer!!! Anita Palomba

      I replied to you on the 17th when you first commented. I suggested you contact Tech Support. All queries about the free trial were to be directed to them. Did you do this?
