Go for the Gold Pillow

PrintE-mail

Have an Aspiring Athlete in your Life? Keep the American Drive for the Gold Going with a great new project.

895-goforgold

We ended the last of the big games over the weekend. Did your favorite athlete take home the gold?

Remembering to go for the gold is important all the time! Inspire yourself and the important people in your life with that little reminder in your home. This pillow project, by Erin Schlosser, will show you how to use your sequin foot and a strand of sequins to write out a message. After you've made this project, you'll have the fun skill of writing with strands of sequins that you can use in many projects to come. For example,  creating custom pieces, supporting teams or causes, and so much more!

America went for the gold all month, give yourself a message to do the same all year long!

For a video on how to use the Ribbon/Sequin foot, click here.

Interested in stepping out of the "block" and trying a new quilting style?

Maureen Cracknell will ease you into the "Quilt As You Go" style by helping you make a quilt with long panels rather than the traditional block quilt. Perfect for scraps - and perfect for experimenting with new techniques! Maureen is excited about the possibilities: "I think you'll be very surprised at just how simply and quickly this quilt comes together. This is definitely one of my new, most favorite syles of quilting!"

Video: Topstitching With The Adjustable Blind Hem Foot G

PrintE-mail

323-video-topstitching-adjustable-blind-hem-foot-gHere's an easy technique for making terrific topstitching.

Sure, you can use the Adjustable Blind Hem Foot G to make hidden stitches (see Creating A Blind Hem Stitch). But because of its adjustable guide, this accessory makes it easy to add topstitching along an already finished seam.

Using The Adjustable Blind Hem Foot G To Do Topstitching

  1. Choose a straight stitch.
  2. Adjust the flange to give you the desired "bite" (distance from the edge).
  3. Guiding the edge of your already sewn seam along the flange, sew your stitching.


Now you have a row of topstitching a perfect distance from the seam.

To see this demonstrated watch Adjustable Blind Hem Foot Video: Doing Topstitching.

For help making sure you have the right presser foot, ask your local Janome dealer.
