Take some time to celebrate Spring to create an excellent wall hanging
Erin Schlosser has created this wonderful wall hanging using a Memory Craft 15000 and Artistic software.

This is a short project that leaves the colors and design up to the creator.

Mother's Day Project
Long Distance from Mom this Mother's Day?
Make a reminder with this Long Distance embroidery design!
Terry Aruta, Janome educator, has created this wonderful design that is available for download. Stitch out the whole country then use the heart embroidery and cut files to cut out small appliqué hearts. Place one where you live, one where the person you are missing lives, and connect using a thick straight stitch in contrasting thread.
This project is a special way to show that you are still connected to loved ones that live across the country.

Janome Educator Susan Clark has made three different accessories. Follow these three methods for making a wristlet, small hand bag, and an over the shoulder bag for whatever special occasion you have coming up in your life! Now you can make a bag that will match your dress perfectly!
This project utilizes Artistic Software to design and create the embroidery and the template for the rhinestones.
30 Years with Janome
The Fabric Garden Celebrates their 30th year as a Janome Dealer
This May marks the 30th year that The Fabric Garden in Madison, Maine, has been an authorized Janome Dealer. To celebrate this great accomplishment we asked Michaela (Kala) Murphy and Celia Murphy to share some of their thoughts looking back over the past 30 years.
"My mother and my aunt instilled the love of both sewing and fabric. Nurturing that love led me to a career in this business where we try to instill both of those into each and every customer. This is a business that has been a love of mine for a long time."
The Fabric Garden located at 167 Lakewood Road (Route 201) in Madison, Maine. They have been a loyal Janome dealer for 30 years and has attained numerous awards in the Janome America Steps to Success Program. The Fabric Garden is open 7 days a week to provide support to their Janome customers, and a staff with over 250 years combined sewing and quilting experience to offer advice on projects of all skill levels.

New Product: LED Light
Our popular LED light in two sizes!
Sometimes your extra-detailed work needs a little extra illumination. The Super Bright LED Compact light affixes to the underside of your sewing machine’s arm and casts a bright light onto your entire sewing project.
The light can be powered by the machine’s USB hub or a traditional outlet and the velcro backing and cord guide keeps the cable neat and organized. Finally you’ll have access to extra light without having to maneuver a desk lamp around your machine and sewing project. The Super Bright LED Compact measures just 2 1/2 inches, allowing it to fit on any model.
Super Bright Compact LED: 2 1/2 inches
Super Bright LED: 4 1/2 inches
Visit your local Janome dealer to purchase these great lights.
Hedgie Pin Cushion
Make a softie hedgehog that can be a toy or a pin cushion!
This project is brought to you by Sam Hunter of Hunter's Design Studio.
Did you know you should change your sewing machine needle regularly? It's as important as changing the oil in your car. A dull needle can ruin your fabric, but it also makes your machine work harder than it needs to. Sam changes needles after every 8-10 hours of sewing.
If you don't like to dispose of your old needles in the trashbecaquse it might hurt someone. Make one of these hedgehogs and put all of your dead needles into an old pincushion. This design is fun because the used needles become part of the design. A hedgehog is the perfect needle-y critter!
