Stitch Composer Basics


Imagine creating your own decorative stitches with your Janome or Elna sewing machine!

Many models of Janome and Elna sewing machines included the Stitch Composer software, but have you ever used it? If not, the time is now!

In this comprehensive course you’ll learn how to use the Stitch Composer software included with the purchase of your Janome or Elna sewing machine. You’ll learn how to install Stitch Composer, how to customize the Stitch Composer screen and menus, and best practices when creating your own designs. 

When you purchase Stitch Composer Basics, you will have access to the entire course right away. This will allow you to work through the course at your own pace.

By the end of this course, you’ll have created your first stitch design and stitched it out on your sewing machine.


  • Stitch Composer disc that came with your Janome or Elna sewing machine

  • PC or program that will let you run Windows on a Mac (Parallels)

  • DVD player – if your computer doesn’t have one, you can buy a separate DVD player to plug into your computer

Note: Stitch Composer works on a Windows platform. If you are using a Mac computer or laptop, you will need a program such as Parallels (allows Windows programs to run on a Mac) to be able to use Stitch Composer.
