    A Fun and Educational Time!

    Janome blogger Samantha Walker wrote a great blog post about her experience at Spring Quilt Market in Minneapolis. One of Samantha's contributions to her booth were her amazing cuckoo clocks that she made with her Horizon Memory Craft 15000 sewing and embroidery machine. Samantha designed the illustration on the clocks in Adobe Illustrator and then she digitized the designs in Artistic Suite.

    Don't be fooled, Samantha's clocks work! She mentions in her blog post that they were keeping time all throughout the show. She designed the clocks with a zipper in the back to keep the batteries in.

    Made with the Skyline S5

    The Sew4Home team made a beautiful decorative stitch piping frames pillow with the Janome Skyline S5 sewing machine. While using the machine's full 9mm stitch width and it's 170 built-in stitch selection, they created both a striking and bold pillow that makes a perfect throw for your living room couch, bedroom and chair. Sew4Home explains in their post that the stitching is the star of this pillow so there is a mix of solid fabrics that blend well with one another, but don't detract from the decorative thread work.

    Using the Skyline's Satin Stitch Foot for both decorative stitching and applique; Zipper Foot for piping; Embroidery Needle for the applique and decorative stitching and Denim Needle for stitching through the multiple layers, you too can create this summery-inspired pillow. The Sew4Home team provides step-by-step instructions for you to follow along with. You can also learn more about the Skyline S5 sewing machine in their tutorial.
