Embroidery Hoop Movement Key

 

 

Did you know that you can easily access the areas of the top of the hoop without having to take the hoop off the machine? If you have ever been embroidering an applique design or been embroidering an in the hoop project and you have needed to remove the hoop from the machine to trim fabric or to set up the next step?

There is an easier way, you can use the hoop movement icon to move the position of the hoop to the top of the hoop. This makes it easier to access the whole embroidery hoop area and there is no need to remove the hoop from the machine and no chance that you could accidently un hoop your project.
With the machine stopped, you can press the hoop movement icon and choose from 4 options of where you would like the embroidery carriage to move to

• Top Left
• Top Centre
• Top Right
• Carriage home position

The first three options will move the needle position to the top of the hoop in the top left, center or top right position of the hoop. This gives you access to the entire hoop area so that you can trim fabric/ thread/ lay down your next fabric piece/ zipper to be embroidered. Once you have finished, you simply touch the hoop return icon and the embroidery hoop will go back to the correct spot for you to begin stitching again.

 

Sliding Guide Foot – Accessory Of The Month September 2020

 

Edge stitching could not get any easier with the Sliding Guide Foot! You can adjust the flange to sit from 3/8’’ up to 1 ¼’’ away from the edge of the foot in seconds and create perfectly straight hems every time. The Janome Sliding Guide Foot manually adjusts to perfectly align with the exact distance you want. The guide can be moved freely and easily by just lifting the lever in the back of the foot. The clear markings make certain you know exactly where you want your foot to go while lining the guide up on a edge or seam.

This Accessory of the Month has a bonus project for you to make.

Janome Intelligent Feed System (SFS-i)

The Intelligent Feed System (SFS-i), is the latest evolution of the Janome Superior Feed System +.

The Superior Feed System + features a 7 piece feed dog that moves in a box feed motion, as opposed to the traditional elliptical motion. This means that when the feed teeth come up from below the needle plate they all come up at the same time, gripping the fabric from below and moving the fabric evenly. At the end of the movement all of the feed teeth drop at the same time, ensuring that there is no fabric movement when the needle is in the fabric. This style of movement, combined with Adjustable Foot Pressure, give the SFS + models strong and consistent fabric feeding capabilities.

On the Continental M7 Professional, a new feature has been added to the SFS-i, where the feed teeth will automatically lower when the foot is raised, and the feed teeth will then raise again once the machine begins sewing. This is especially handy when sewing with bulky fabric, overlocked fabric, stretch fabric, t-shirt fabric and fabric with a looped pile, as the fabric can easily be placed before sewing and removed at the end of sewing without any risk of the feed dogs catching on the fabric.
