Understanding a Janome Embroidery Machine: Threading the Machine and the Needle




Written by Eva Marie Cooper

This is a photo instructional, please click on the photos to get a full detailed explanation on how to thread the machine and needle. I am using a Janome embroidery machine at TechShop San Jose. Please feel free to leave a message bellow with a comment or a question!

If you would like more information or would be interested in hiring me to complete a project for you please email me at cooperevam@yahoo.com. I participate in freelance work so if you would like something completed then email me with information and I should get back to you within 24 hours! I do the following services: embroidery services, sewing services, laser cutting and etching, 3D printing, prototyping, design work, and designing in Autodesk Inventor 2013.

I did this at TechShop San Jose!

The Janome CNC Embroidery Machine has built in embroidery designs or takes .jef files and only has one thread holder [so if you would like to have multiple colors to the design then you will have to manually change the thread each time].

    Question 1 year ago on Introduction

    I inherited this machine from my mother and the janome flashdrive that the ambroidery letters were on was accidentally erased by my son. Is there anyway to get these back?
