    Made with the Skyline S9

    “There is nothing like the first snowfall of the season, hot chocolate and our all time favorite holiday movie Elf to help us jump start the celebrations! Elizabeth Hartman’s Frances Firefly pattern is a joy to work with and lent itself to the oversized reading pillow my young, voracious reader requested months ago. Any project that helps to encourage and foster a love of reading is okay in my book no matter the season. The pillow is also the perfect size for road trips and it is beginner friendly.” Janome Artisan Maday Delgado of Free Spirit Designs by Maday 

    Maday used the Skyline S9 to make this cheerful project. Click here to learn how to make it.

    By Janome Canada's Sherri Sylvester

    Janome Canada Artisan Sherri Sylvester of Thread Riding Hood has been enjoying the great Acu Apps on the Skyline S9 as she makes her daughter a new towel. Sherri explains that AcuDesign does everything. She was impressed by how the Smart Stitch engine adjusts the density of your stitches; it is straightforward and intuitive; has an undo and redo button; resizes your graphic to the hoop size automatically; has Real-Time Simulation and has cute designs. The only thing that surprised Sherri was the number of graphics that were for sale. She does mention that the designs were pretty reasonable. 

    Included in Sherri’s post are AcuDesign mini tutorials. She also goes over AcuSetter and AcuMonitor. Click here to read her full review.

    Made with the Skyline S9

    Janome Artisan Caroline Hulse of Sew Caroline made a colorful divided basket and changing pad that is perfect for all of the multi-tasking, busy and on-the-go moms out there. Using the Skyline S9, Caroline paper pieced the beautiful pattern to make up all of the convenient compartments in the basket. 

    Going to the mall, a restaurant, someone else’s house or the airport has never been easier for moms with little ones with this homemade divided basket and changing pad.

    By Kelly Crawford

    “This year, I am so incredibly excited for New Year’s as I will be celebrating it by watching the fireworks over the Sydney Opera House! I wanted my girls to have something fun and festive to wear. I also wanted something fancy, but comfortable since we will probably be standing somewhere for several hours waiting. I love the dresses Cotton On kids produced this year for Christmas that had loose pom poms on the bottom. While I was able to snatch one up in my daughter Chloe’s size, they were sold out in my other daughter Evie’s. She was so jealous of Chloe’s I knew I had to make her something similar. I then sewed up the Confetti Skirt using the Skyline S7.” - Janome Artisan Kelly Crawford of Sewing in No Mans Land

    Using gauge tulle and pom pom trim in coordinating colors, you too can make this fun and pretty skirt for New Year’s Eve, Christmas or any special day or night this festive month.

    Sarah's New Favorite Janome Machine!

    Artisan Sarah Smith has been affiliated with Janome America for many years and has enjoyed sewing on a variety of different machines. When we asked Sarah to test out the Horizon Memory Craft 9400, she could not have been more excited! 

    Over the past few months, Sarah has sewn samples for classes, a knit top and a set of quilted placemats and table runner using the MC9400. Sarah had been previously loaning the Horizon Memory Craft 15000 which she loved, but decided to switch it out and keep the MC9400 as her on-loan machine since she doesn’t do much embroidery work and is a quilting expert. 

    Overall, Sarah has been enjoying free-motion and walking quilting with the MC9400. The only thing she wished the machine came with is a foot similar to the convertible FMQ that came with the MC8900QCP/MC8200QCP Special Edition machines. 

    Click here to read Sarah’s full review and check out some of the projects and samples she made with the MC9400.
