    Tutorial for Summer Road Trips

    "Summer has finally arrived! With summer usually comes vacations and road trips with the family. The Janome Horizon Memory Craft 8900QCP Special Edition is the perfect tool for you to create a fun quilt that will make time in the car fly by. This project is great for using up novelty prints and scraps that you might have a hard time using while practicing your perfect piecing with Janome's 1/4" Seam Foot. Take turns with the kids in the car saying, "I spy...___________", and pick up an object from one of the novelty prints on the quilt. They will search for the object and take turns doing the same for endless fun! This is a wonderful project to make fo those long road trips." - Joanna Marsh of Kustom Kwilts and Design

    The Janome UltraGlide Foot and Needle Plate

    Sometimes it is hard to sew with speciality fabrics like laminates, vinyls, faux leather, oil cloth and other sticky fabric substrates. The Janome Ultra Glide Foot and its accompanying Needle Plate Set gives you the ability to sew through challenging fabrics.

    The UltraGlide Foot is made from a special resin that allows the foot to smoothly move across sticky surfaces that catch and grab a standard metal presser foot. The UltraGlide Needle Plate uses the same non-sticky technology as the foot so your project can flow under the foot without sticking to either surface.
