How to Convert a JPG to a JEF

Janome sewing machines can import files saved onto your computer to use as embroidery templates with the use of digitizer software. Janome's digitizer software can import .BMP files and save them as .JEF files that can be used on your Janome embroidery sewing machines. You can also convert JPEG files to JEF files.
