Vermont Quilt Festival 2014


36 MyStyle 100's were given to Young Quilters

To encourage young people to get into the art of quilting, the Vermont Quilt Festival accepts entries in the Youth quilt category. At the Quilt Festival in 2009, Dave LaValley of Bittersweet Fabrics, surprised everyone when he gave away a MyStyle 100 to all 5 kids that entered a quilt. In the following years, the Festival has seen steady growth in the youth category and Dave gives away machines to each entry. This year, 36 quilts were entered by kids ranging from 4-16. All 36 youth quilters received a Janome MyStyle 100 in recognition of their work and to help them continue their journey.

Dave is proud to give away these machines, “I wanted to do something special for these young quilters. The Janome MyStyle100 is a real sewing machine. I tell them that they no longer have to sew on their mom’s machine, because they have one of their very own now.”

Video Tutorial


Concealed Zipper Foot

Good quality ready to wear garments will often have an invisible zip fitted. These zippers are often neglected by the home dressmaker which is a pity because they can ensure success every time. Invisible zips are suitable for all fabrics from fine silk jersey through to suit weight wools and tweeds. The key is to get the needle as close to the fastener as possible, which this foot accomplishes by slightly unrolling the zipper just before the needle. Once fitted, a well sewn invisible zipper will merely look like part of the seam.

Sweatshirt Pillow


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!
