Janome Maker (Feline Brigade) and Top Quality Control Manager
Cheeto (aka Cheeto Puff) has a chronic case of FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) and has appointed himself as Kimberly’s Chief Studio Supervisor. He is uniquely qualified for this furr-ever role because of his extensive experience in overseeing all sewing, quilting, and embroidery while Kimberly sews on Janome’s 4300, 9450, 15000 or his personal favorite machine, the Continental M7. Due to his rather robust size, he fits most comfortably on the bed of the M7 although he is adamant he’s not large, his fur is just “poofy.”
He chose to live with the Einmo family two years ago when he was just twelve weeks old after they read his profile on a local rescue website; although Cheeto maintains he was the one who rescued his humans. Cheeto invites you to follow his daily life and antics on Instagram @janome_cat. He loves Janome machines because they are strong, reliable and are so quiet, they purr!
Cheeto is featured in his own yearly wall calendar with 100% of all proceeds going to charity, Care Rescue LA.
