Video: Embroidery Placement With A Printed Template On The Clothsetter Table 11000
Use a printed template with the Clothsetter Table 11000 to place multiple designs with perfect accuracy.
Your Memory Craft 11000 Special Edition has extremely precise embroidery stitching. Using a printed template with your Clothsetter Table 11000 helps you place that embroidery with the highest accuracy.
Also, using a printed template helps you better visualize how your design will fit on your project. And it allows you to easily create layouts using more than one hooping.
Note: Before you do any embroidery with your Clothsetter Table, be sure it's calibrated. See the calibration video for easy instructions.
Using A Printed Template To Place Your Embroidery Design
- Print your design template. (Janome software has several tools for creating printed templates.)
- Set your template on a cutting surface. Using an awl, make holes on each of the four lines and at the tip of the arrow.
- Lay your template on your project. Once it's aligned the way you'd like, take a fabric marking pen and make a dot on your project in each of the holes.
- Remove the template and with a ruler draw lines between the dots in a cross pattern. Mark the arrow at the top.
- Attach your embroidery hoop to the Clothsetter table, loosening the screw and removing the inner hoop.
- Set a sheet of stabilizer on the hoop and then your project.
- Align it so that it's exactly under the cross-hairs with the arrows pointing the same way.
- Lift the arm and set the inner hoop in place.
- As you press it down, be sure your project does not move out of alignment.
- Tighten the screw to hold your project in place.
- Now remove the whole hoop from the Clothsetter Table and attach it to your Memory Craft 11000.
- To ensure that it's exactly in place, you can use the handwheel to lower the needle.
- Press Start to begin embroidery stitching, following the machine's directions for changing thread color.
- Once embroidery is complete you can remove the markings and excess stabilizer according to directions.
