AcuStitch V2.10: Free Update

This software from Janome allows you to embroider geometric shapes with decorative stitches. It allows you to modify the width of the pattern, the length as well as the distance between each pattern in addition to choosing the radius, the embroidery hoop size and other small settings. For more on AcuStitch, check out the previous blogs on Janome Life.

    Hi , Is acustitch a soft wear we buy separate, or it comes with our machine. Sorry I got confused as I have 15000. Do I suppose to have it with my machine , or I buy separately.

    Thank you Hala wafai

    What is the difference between StitchComposer (part of Horizon Link Suite) and AcuStitch? I purchased a MC15000 last year from a local dealer here in Illinois but don’t have anything called AcuStitch…

    When are you going to update for Apple users !! how frustrating you’re locked into Windows only


    • janomeman says:

      HI Adeline, thank you for your feedback. I think it’s likely in the works as Janome really does try to respond to user feedback. Artistic Digitizer software, for example, was built on the Mac platform, so it’s compatible for both Windows and Mac. The Janome APPS were once only for iPad/iPhone, but have now been developed for Android devices, as well. Many people want Janome to do away with discs altogether and just have digital downloads, so that’s started to happen, as well.
      For the meanwhile, many Mac users tell us they use a software program to partition their hard drive in order to run Windows, as well. OR, others says they purchased an inexpensive, sometimes reconditioned laptop just to run the various Windows based discs.
      Happy Sewing!
