    I own a 6500 and a 350e and I am looking for a font that is larger and more substantial than the fonts on the 6500/6600 BUT smaller than the smallest font that the Janome 350e can make. Does anyone know where I could purchase such a creation?

    Is it even possible? I want to make quilt labels and I'd appreciate any advice you 350e owners might be able to give me. I am a very experienced quilter but a newbie at embroidery!

    Thank you!

    How small do you want it to be?
    I also have the 350e. You can increase and decrease designs after they appear on the screen although that changes the density of the stitch out.
    Maybe if you can find a small font online, then decrease it a little through the machine it would be the size you want?
    Sorry I can't give you exactly the answer you want.

    Thanks Nadine, I have reduced by 10% as per the Janome edit screen several times but the font is still thick (to my eye). I'd really like a writing font like the 6500 but a little bigger.

    Maybe try to edit the font thru Embird? Although I've never used it and don't know if it'll fix the density.

    I use Monogram Wizard to create labels. It is not just for monograms. Attached is a picture of one so you can see what it looks like. It was sewn on fabric that matched the backing. There are several different fonts you can choose from.
