    Spooky Quilt Tutorial by Stephanie Kendron

    Over the past few years, we have launched some great machines! Since we have a great blogger network, we could not wait to get these machines into the hands of their talent. Just like we have done with the Skyline S5, Skyline S7, Memory Craft 500E and the MODs, we loaned our team of Artisans a brand new MC9400 or Skyline S9 machine and they created a project with it and provided both our readers and their followers an honest product review and tutorial! Stephanie Kendron of Modern Sewciety was excited to post the very first MC9400 review and provided us a Spooky Quilt tutorial for Halloween.

    There were so many features Stephanie loved on the MC9400. Her favorites were the retractable High Light™, the spacious sewing bed, automatic presser foot lift and the advanced LCD color touchscreen. Stephanie mentioned that she had some trouble with the thread cutter.

    Overall, Stephanie loved working with the new MC9400 machine. She mentions that it sews like a dream.

    Welcome the Spookiest Time of the Year

    The summer is coming to the end and everyone is excited for all of those fun fall activities, including the spookiest day of the year! As you begin to think about upcoming Halloween projects, Joanna Marsh of Kustom Kwilts and Designs made a quick and easy candy collecting tote bag for trick-or-treating that can be used for many years to come.

    Joanna used the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 8900QCP Special Edition machine to quilt the top of the bag and assemble it. Joanna also utilized the free motion capabilities that she was easily able to switch back to standard sewing stitches in seconds.

    This is a beginner to intermediate project that can be completed within three hours. Click here to learn how to make it using Joanna’s helpful step-by-step instructions.
