How do I design a stitch with MY CUSTOM STITCH function?

With the MY CUSTOM STITCH function, you can sew stitch patterns that you design yourself.


Drawing a sketch of the pattern

Prepare a grid sheet set.


  1. Draw a sketch of the pattern on the grid sheet set.

    Draw the pattern as one continuous line and with the start point and the end point of the design at the same height.

  2. If the pattern will be repeated, determine the space between the repeating patterns.

  3. Mark the points in the pattern that are positioned at intersections in the grid, and then link those points with a continuous straight line.

  4. Determine the sewing order.

    For a more attractive stitch, close the pattern by intersecting the line.


Entering the pattern data

  1. Attach monogramming foot “N”.

  2. Press  on the operation panel as many times as necessary until  is displayed, and press "9" "7".

    The MY CUSTOM STITCH screen is displayed.


  3. Check the grid sheet set, and specify the coordinates of the first point. Specify the coordinates using the “-” and “+” keys, and press "OK".

  4. Specify the coordinates of the second point, and then press "OK".

  5. Specify whether single stitching or triple stitching will be sewn between the points.
    Select either of them using the “-” or “+” key, and then press "OK".

    Select either of them using the “-” or “+” key, and then press "OK".

  7. Repeat steps 4 through 6 to specify each point.

      Press once to highlight the last point in white.
      Press again to select the previous point.
