Sassy Summer Table Runner

PrintE-mail

Great Summer project
Sassy-Summer-table-Runner

Created by Jane Spolar of Quilt Poetry

This appliquéd and embroidered runner has a pillowcased edge, and doesn’t require binding! The center of each block is embroidered with a motif that will fit within a 5" circle.

We’ve included two different designs, one is done on the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000 and features an embroidery motif from The World of Embroidery Designs collection. The other runner was made on the Memory Craft 9900 and uses a butterfly, one of the embroidery motifs that Jane designed exclusively for Janome. These designs come pre-loaded on the machines. It couldn’t be handier!

Summer Project

PrintE-mail

Beat the Heat Tank Top
SewCaroline-Tank-Top 

Caroline Hulse of www.sewcaroline.com has made this project and shared the instructions for the Janome community. This tutorial will show you how to take an existing tank that you love to wear, rub off the pattern, and create a tie back tank that is perfect to beat the heat in this summer. The great thing about this project is that it can be done on any Janome sewing machine and is a great way to upcycle an old tank top.

These instructions were written for an adult, but the same method can be used to create a tank top for the little one in your life!

Vermont Quilt Festival 2014

PrintE-mail

36 MyStyle 100's were given to Young Quilters
photo 

To encourage young people to get into the art of quilting, the Vermont Quilt Festival accepts entries in the Youth quilt category. At the Quilt Festival in 2009, Dave LaValley of Bittersweet Fabrics, surprised everyone when he gave away a MyStyle 100 to all 5 kids that entered a quilt. In the following years, the Festival has seen steady growth in the youth category and Dave gives away machines to each entry. This year, 36 quilts were entered by kids ranging from 4-16. All 36 youth quilters received a Janome MyStyle 100 in recognition of their work and to help them continue their journey.

Dave is proud to give away these machines, “I wanted to do something special for these young quilters. The Janome MyStyle100 is a real sewing machine. I tell them that they no longer have to sew on their mom’s machine, because they have one of their very own now.”

Concealed Zipper Foot
Concealed-Zipper-Foot 

Good quality ready to wear garments will often have an invisible zip fitted. These zippers are often neglected by the home dressmaker which is a pity because they can ensure success every time. Invisible zips are suitable for all fabrics from fine silk jersey through to suit weight wools and tweeds. The key is to get the needle as close to the fastener as possible, which this foot accomplishes by slightly unrolling the zipper just before the needle. Once fitted, a well sewn invisible zipper will merely look like part of the seam.
