Memory Craft 15000 Winner
A Sewists' Journey with Janome
In August, Melissa received some great news. After completing Janome’s marketing survey in May, Melissa won the new Horizon Memory Craft 15000 giveaway. A month after picking up her machine, we asked Melissa how she is enjoying her new 15000 and she said that “it is a blast; you cannot believe how much you can accomplish with this machine and it does everything on its own, so you can start another project in the meantime. My first quilting project on the 15000 was the Crazy Eights Pillow featured on my blog and I loved how it came out.”
Quilting Accessory Advice from a Janome Educator
Janome Educator - Luann Hartley
I have started doing a lot of machine quilting and was looking for a way to use the rulers which are made for the long arm quilting machines. Janome has the perfect foot for this technique. It is the "Free Motion Frame Quilting Feet Set" Part #767434005. This foot is for use with the Janome 1600P and it does need to be attached to a Convertible free motion foot for this machine, which is a separate Part #767433004. The foot on the left is the foot I use with the quilting rulers. It is a fatter foot so the rulers will set right up against it. Instead of marking the quilting design on the fabric, you can use the ruler and guide the fabric around the design. I was so excited to be able to use these rulers to help me with my free motion quilting. There are many different rulers with all types of pattern combinations available. This foot makes it so easy to get that professional quilted look.

Sassy Summer Table Runner
Great Summer project
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!

We challenged three of our Educators to come up with a new project using the same fabric. We gave each Educator 5 yards of fabric, assigned a category and 72 hours to complete their design. Erin Schlosser made the Simplicity Dress. Danielle Wilkes made the Thrifty Table Linens. Kelley McKenzie made the Trip Around the Block Quilt. Which do you like best?

Beat the Heat 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!
