    Perfect for that Warm Winter Drink

    "I love the winter holidays. It is true that the weather is a bit gray and gloomy and the sun rises later and sets early, but it is the perfect time to dream and sew. Some of my favorite projects are created from thrown-away wool sweaters. To prepare for craft projects, I stash the wool sweater into the hottest water my washing machine can produce and then toss it at the highest heat into my dryer. To get the feel of wool felt, I do it all over again.

    Sewing mug rugs are one of my favorite projects. I find myself searching for one every morning as I drink my tea and read my morning news. It protects my desk and just looks warm and cozy. 

    I like the look of red and white Swedish embroidery and while I don't have a loom, I thought I would try for a similar look on the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000. I digitized the design using Digitizer software and then embroidered it on the machine. It's perfect for a cold winter's day!" - Janome Maker Milinda Stephenson of Milinda Sews

    DIY Drop Shoulder Cardigan

    "We're finally heading into sweater weather here in California and I couldn't be more excited. I'm always on the hunt for a good cardigan sweater and just the other day decided to try my hand at making one. It turns out it was really easy! I ran across some ribbed knit fabric at Jo-Ann's and it was the perfect thing to make a comfy slouchy cardigan. Paired with ankle boots, a scarf and a cute bag - this makes the perfect comfortable outfit." - Janome Artisan Merrick White of Merrick’s Art

    Made with the AMH M100

    Tara Gray of Modern Maven is full of inspiring ideas all deriving from her love of nature. Living in Hawaii, Tara enjoys using a brighter color palette and lighter weight fabrics in her projects. When we asked her to test out the new Anna Maria Horner M100 sewing machine, she was so excited! 

    Once Tara and her daughter saw the new Pan movie, she couldn’t wait to make a Warrior Princess Tiger Lily costume for Halloween. Right away, Tara couldn’t wait to use Anna Maria Horner’s fabrics as they are the perfect fit for this costume. Tara’s daughter Channing loved it! 

    Tara mentions in her review that the AMH M100 was easy to figure out and use. She loved the beautiful stitching options available for a hand embroidered look. Channing loved how her costume turned out and it was a great Halloween.
