    We're stoked to have Natalie Barnes from Beyond the Reef Patterns joining us as a new Maker here at Janome. 

    We sat down with Natalie to learn about some of her favorite things, how she recharges, and even what spurred her to learn to quilt! (We think you'll want to know how that came about!) Read below for some of our interview:

    Natalie's Bio:

    Natalie is the owner/designer for beyond the reef, a quilt pattern-design company that she started one rainy north shore morning on a lanai in Hanalei, Kauai, while drinking coffee with author Jill Marie Landis. As a little girl, Natalie learned to sew, knit, and crochet from her grandmother. After a successful career in the demanding commercial/corporate interior design field in Los Angeles, Natalie decided it was time to live a new dream, and put her talents to work in another area. She has never looked back. She is a fabric designer for Windham Fabrics.  A Janome Maker, and a contributor to Aurifil and Olfa.  She is author of A Modern Twist, by Martingale/TPP with contributions by Angela Walters.  And you'll find her entertaining tutorials on the new video series, STITCH!, or teaching at a guild or retreat near you.

    Having always lived on the beach, Natalie draws her inspiration for color and design from the sea, the sky, and the land. These days you’ll find Natalie in the studio in sunny Southern California, or out and about with her dog, Stitch. 

    See more of her inspiration on her site, Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest.

    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.
