We're so excited for the new year and what it holds for Janome! We've got lots of new products AND some new Artisan faces! We'd like to welcome Faith Essenburg to our team!
We're looking forward to seeing her projects, and seeing what she stitches up with her Janome 6700.
We asked Faith to give us a little intro about herself. Here's what she had to say:
"My name is Faith Essenburg, I am a stay at home mom of three boys living in the Chicago suburbs. I started sewing a little over four years ago when I was pregnant with my youngest and I couldn't find baby bedding that I liked. My first makes were a quilt blanket with Minkey backing and a minkey crib sheet, working on an old loaner sewing machine and just learning as I went. That bedding is still in use four years later and I laugh everytime someone tells me they are scared to work with minkey! I took my sewing up a notch when I joined an online sew along more than a year later and I have been sewing away ever since. I find so much joy and satisfaction in slowing down and working with my hands, from choosing fabrics to learning new sewing methods to blogging my makes, it's all a creative blessing that I am just so glad I stumbled upon."
Wow, Faith! We're also impressed your first project was sewn with minkey. Don't forget to check back next week (or keep an eye on our Facebook or Instagram feed) for Faith's first project! We think you'll really like it!
