Father's Day Gift Idea
Janome Educator Maddie Bushman, came up with this quick and easy upcycling project perfect for Father's Day.
This is a fun and easy way to preserve a great sweatshirt that doesn't get worn much anymore. Favroite Sports teams sweatshirts work great for this project. Maybe a souvenir that you purchased at a concert where it was a night to remember. Or just maybe its your husband or son's shirt that's just seen better days. Now you can create something new instead of having to junk those memories!
Whichever sweatshirt you choose this pillow is sure to be a hit. Just make sure you get permission first!

Thomas Knaur shares his "Think Board"
This project has a great embroidery design and uses chalkboard fabric. Think of the possiblities!
"I made the first of these Think Boards for my daughter (Bee) as a place to write down ideas now that she is starting in on, or to draw something she wanted to have in her room for a while. It is a Think Board because I wanted Bee to see it as a place to engage in writing (and drawing) as an active thinking process, not just a method of recording thoughts or ideas that are finished. So, I called it a Think Board, a place where she can go to think things out through writing or drawing or those inscrutable markings that only she seems to understand..."

New Anna Maria Horner Project
Piece a Cake Dress
Anna Maria Horner has created another fantastic design for Janome.
I am so happy to introduce the Piece-A-Cake baby dress! After sewing for my kiddos for years (and years) I have come to rely on simple patterns that are not overwhelmed with details. This one is the perfect opportunity to play with favorite fabrics, add details and even to make a batch of them at once. I also really appreciate that in just a couple of hours my little one can have a new dress ready to go. That is helpful when she seems to grow from one size to another in about that much time!
Enjoy the pattern & and I can't wait to see your Piece-A-Cakes!!
xo, Anna Maria
