    We're thrilled to have Kimberly Coffin, the creative force behind Sweet Red Poppy, joining us as a Janome Maker. Kimberly has been sewing on a Janome for years and we're excited to see what she creates with her new Janome sewing machine and serger!

    Erin in Marketing "sat down" with Kimberly for a little chat. Learn more about Kimberly's best sewing tip below! 

    Here's a little more about Kimberly:

    Wife and mother to three by day, quick-stitching seamstress by night. Kimberly is the “sew”cialist behind the blog Sweet Red Poppy. She is a fabric-hoarding, embellishment loving, color enthusiast, who enjoys putting her modern spin on sewing.

    In her spare time, you can find her dreaming up her latest design, stitching away like a wild woman and taking way too many photographs of her children, all in an effort to avoid the menial daily household tasks of motherhood. Take a look behind the seams at her refreshingly honest posts about the daily challenges of motherhood, the chaos of three children under four and her passion for fashion and sewing on Instagram @sweetredpoppyFacebook, or YouTube.

    Wow! Look at this amazing Back-To-School Ditty Bag that Stephanie at Modern Sewciety stitched up! What a lucky teacher her kiddos have! We just adore her use of decorative stitches to give the bottom a little bit of personality!

    Stephanie used the Janome Skyline S9 to stitch up this lovely bag! Read all about the supplies and tools from Sulky, Havel's, Hobb's Batting, and Windham fabrics that she used on her post here, then make your own with the instructions for the Modern Ditty Bag here.

    It’s that time of year when you start looking forward to crisp air, a crunchy apple,
    the start of school and a new teacher. This very quick and easy little pin, from designer Sarah Ann Smith, took less than an hour and just a few supplies. It's also a great way to practice your applique! Make yours with the free pattern here.

    We're so excited to welcome our newest Artisan to Janome America, Robert Mahar! He's an artist, designer, and all around crafty individual. (If he looks familiar, it may be because you've seen him on NBC's Making It.) We can't wait to see what he'll be stitching up this year on his Janome 6700P!

    You can read his official bio below, but we thought it'd be more fun to ask some more unique questions to get to know him a little better! Robert recently sat down (via the internet) with Janome Marketing assistant, Erin, for a little interview. Here's part of our conversation, which now has Erin wanting to Google chilaquiles recipes!

    Robert's Bio:
    Robert Mahar is an artist and designer who develops and teaches imaginative crafts and clever do-it-yourself projects through high-quality video tutorials and in-person workshops. He is also a contestant on the new NBC creative competition show Making It.  The crafty content he develops and presents to his YouTube viewers, online audience and workshop attendees is often rooted in nostalgia.  His talent for reinventing old-school crafts with a decidedly modern twist is evident in the gift line he continues to develop with Knock Knock and has gained him a loyal following.

    With an education in studio arts and art history, he has worked in a variety of creative fields including 13 years as an appraiser of modern and contemporary art. When he’s not working in his downtown Los Angeles studio, Robert obsesses over vintage craft books and schemes ways to make it big as a doughnut connoisseur.
