When a handy scanner 8 reads a standard sewing designation mark 45 drawn in advance on a work sheet 39 held by an embroidery frame 34, the sewing data on an embroidery pattern to be sewn can be edited so that the position and direction and the pattern size at the time the embroidery pattern is actually sewn on the work sheet 39 correspond to the position and direction and the pattern size indicated by the standard mark 45. Accordingly, the sewing data can be simply edited only if the work sheet 39 is set in the embroidery frame 34, without manual operations, resulting in a large improvement of the efficiency of sewing work.
