Multi-Hooping; Creating a square/rectangular layout Part 2

Last month I wrote about using the “Layout” mode of the Janome Embroidery Editor software to create an embroidery design which is bigger then your machine’s embroidery hoop. This is made even easier by using the Janome Clothsetter, and the printed templates created in Embroidery Editor. These are essential in order to obtain perfect continuous positioning. I suggest watching several informative videos about this exclusive and optional Janome accessory on YouTube and Facebook.

With your paper template printed and assembled (depending on the size of the layout), you must mark the crosshairs for alignment of the second layout onto your fabric, taking care the design on the template coincides against the previous embroidered design. You will use these crosshairs to hoop your fabric using the Janome Clothsetter as it has the same crosshairs on it, which are used for alignment.

Juxtapose the 2nd layout template against the first embroidered design to draw the crosshairs
Place the fabric in the embroidery hoop by superimposing the crosshair drawn on the fabric with the red marks of the crosshair on the Janome Clothsetter
Aligning the crosshair of the Janome Clothsetter with the crosshair transferred to the fabric from the template ensures perfect embroidery design placement.

Now, attach the hoop to your machine and make the center of the crosshair coincide with the tip of the needle; the ‘jog‘ key becomes essential if you need to move the hoop slightly so that the needle is exactly in the center of the cross.

Very precise positioning with the ‘jog’ key built in to many Janome embroidery machines.

Adjust the position of the embroidery hoop with the 4 directions of the ‘jog’ key so that the position of the needle is just above the center of the reference lines on the fabric.

You can now stitch the embroidery design!

In this photo, there are two hoopings side by side

Technical sheet of this layout: 20,820 stitches < monochrome color < 270 x 222 mm < 54 min of embroidery time at 400 ppm per hoop. You can change the speed of your embroidery machine in the Settings.

Positioning steps

The same steps were followed for the second layout below with a different design.

Layout with a different embroidery design for the 2nd hooping

Technical sheet of this layout: 43,386 stitches < monochrome color < 296 x 229 mm < 124 min of embroidery time at 400 ppm per hoop.

That’s it, both sides of my bag are now embroidered; it remains to embroider the band of in-between.

To be continued!!!

About Céline Ross

À cause des imprévus de la vie, j'ai changé de carrière très tôt dans ma jeune vie d'adulte. Toute mon éducation scolaire, du primaire au secondaire et jusqu'au professionnel, m'a été enseignée par les religieuses CND qui étaient... très exigeantes. Ces professeurs m'ont inculqué le goût de bien apprendre, l'appréciation du travail bien fait et l'envie de toujours me perfectionner. Je n'aurais jamais osé ouvrir mon École de couture sans cette formation ni cette certification. Lorsque je deviens revendeur autorisé Janome en avril 1982, la compagnie poursuit ma formation côté machine à coudre et je deviens Éducatrice. Mon travail est varié; je donne des formations aux marchands Janome pour l'Est du Canada et d'ailleurs. Je participe à des Salons, à Janome Institute, je publie un cyber bulletin, j'ai fondé un 'Club de broderie' à Montréal en 1994 et, depuis l'année dernière, chez d'autres marchands. Je confectionne des échantillons avec les nouveaux produits que Janome ne cesse de développer. Et, depuis aujourd'hui, je blogue ! Après toutes ces années dans ce domaine, je garde toujours le même enthousiasme à apprendre et à transmettre mes connaissances. Janome est à la fine pointe de la technologie moderne et ne cesse de me faire progresser.
