    By Jane Spolar of Quilt Poetry

    We were so excited for our Artisan Jane Spolar of Quilt Poetry to give the Skyline S9 a test. Some of Jane’s favorite features are the 9mm stitch width, one-step needle plate conversion capability, last stitch recall and adjustable knee lift. She also loves the Skyline S9’s AcuFeed™ Flex fabric feeding system that makes sewing light weight fabrics and multiple layers smooth and easily. There are no worries about fabric slippage.

    In addition, Jane talks about how much fun the new Anna Maria Horner Limited Edition Embroidery Collection starter kit is. She used it to give the Skyline S9’s new embroidery features a try. In the kit, you will find 18 spools of Iris polyester embroidery thread, three fun pieces of Anna Maria cotton fabric and a piece of knit fabric, stabilizer and a cute clothespin USB drive. In addition, she loved couching with the embroidery unit.

    Fiber Art with Fabric Scraps and Chain Stitch

    “One of my favorite things to do with scraps is to use them for fabric art. I save all of my smallest sewing scraps and the run-off from serging and creating collages which are secured in place with stitching. I had an idea to use the chain stitch function on the Janome CoverPro 2000CPX for the stitching and I am thrilled with the results of my latest piece.” – Janome Artisan Ajaire Parello of Call Ajaire

    Ajaire made a beautiful kite for her cousin’s most recent event where they auctioned off pieces of art to raise money for a mural in a local school.

    Perfect for Fall Projects

    “Although cool weather is just a promise here in Florida, the pumpkins are still ripe and the holiday season is upon us. My daughter loves decorating her new house with seasonal towels and pillows so I digitized this pumpkin applique as part of her Halloween decorations. I plan to also use it on overalls for my grandson and a t-shirt for my niece. I used the Artistic Edge Digital Cutter for my applique design and sewed it out on the Janome Skyline S9 using my favorite hooping feature – magnets. I hope you all enjoy it!” – Janome Artisan Milinda Stephenson of Milinda Sews
