Sewing in No Mans Land Rocks STYLO's Front Cover
A Project Made With the Skyline S5
Blogger Kelly Crawford from Sewing in No Mans Land was excited to see her son Finn "strutting his stuff" on the front cover of STYLO's Third Issue, released on November 3rd. Not only was it thrilling to see Finn as she pulled up the magazine on her computer, but to also see her project made with the Skyline S5 machine.
Along with Janome's other bloggers, Kelly had the chance to test out the Skyline S5 for a couple of months. She used a V-neck shirt pattern to make an Outsiders shirt for her son, who looks super cool in it!
STYLO is the first fashion forward eMagazine centered around children's sewing patterns and style.
The Janome Skyline Received Yet Another Positive Review
A Review and Project by Jen Schumann of iCandy Handmade
"It is a well-made machine, from a great brand and from the moment you see it, you know it is a quality machine." - Jen
Sewing blogger Jen Schumann also had the opportunity to try out the Janome Skyline S5 sewing machine and loved it! In her review, she said that she would give the Janome Skyline a thumbs up.
During the weeks Jen tested the Skyline machine, she made a baby swing tee out of leftover knit she used for a peplum dress that she previously made.
Introducing the Fan Dance Project
A Guide to Making a Colorful Quilt by Janome Spokesperson, Anna Maria Horner
Anna Maria Horner is pleased to introduce the latest project, the Fan Dance Quilt. Using the traditional Dresden Plate block as inspiration, Anna Maria used only half of a plate at a time creating more of a fan motif. The color and placement of the fans, in alternating direction, gives the quilt lovely movement and a wonderful opportunity for color play. When creating the Fan Dance, you will also get to feature some favorite tonal fabrics in broad strokes for the background of the floating fans.
Anna Maria did all of the piecing and machine quilting on the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000. This guide details all of her simple steps for doing both applique and quilting at the same time. Anna Maria also took advantage of the gorgeous pre-loaded medallion designs for additional quilting details.
The video Anna Maria produced for you details the process of creating the crib size, but the instruction PDF has all of the layout, fabric requirements and cutting instructions for both the crib and full size quilts.
What are you waiting for? Get up and do a Fan Dance!
