    Project and Review of the Skyline S9

    Janome and Elna Artisan Erin Sobon Sundet of Sewbon has a strong love of sewing and house plants. She was so excited give our new Skyline S9 a try and make a wonderful basket planter for her Meyer lemon tree. 

    Erin mentions in her review that the Skyline S9 is an impressive machine. Erin has been sewing on the Elna eXpressive 920 for about a year and a half now, so working with the Skyline S9 was a breeze for her. Erin’s favorite feature on the S9 is the automatic thread cutter. She also likes the bobbin thread sensor and the stitch quality. 

    Since Erin has been working on embroidery projects with both the Elna eXpressive 900 and 920 machines over the past few years, she was super excited to see that the new Skyline has an embroidery unit. She also loved the Anna Maria Horner Limited Edition Embroidery Collection Kit that was sent to her.

    Learn About the New Anna Maria Horner Machine

    Over the past few years, we have launched some great machines that are complementary to a variety of talents. Since early September, we have been sharing MC9400 and Skyline S9 machine reviews and projects from our awesome team of Artisans. At the beginning of October, we were excited to launch the new Anna Maria Horner M100 sewing machine – designed by Janome’s Spokesperson Anna Maria Horner herself. Meredith Daniel of Olivia Jane Handcrafted was excited to post the very first AMH M100 review and provided us with a gorgeous Pegasus Pillow Tutorial using the vibrant colors and warm patterns from Anna Maria’s fabric lines. 

    Meredith mentions in her review that she has used the AMH M100 exclusively since has received it. She has made quilts, garments, home décor and bags on this machine. Meredith also adds that the machine is suitable for anyone from a beginner to a seasoned sewist.

    Some of Meredith’s favorite features on the AMH M100 are the diverse range of 100 built-in stitches. She notes that you get those specialty finishing stitches that many machines at this price point lack. It is also easy to find the stitch you want. Meredith also loves the thread cutter that is built into the machine.
