Janome Supplies Required

Janome Supplies Require :

  • Any Janome Embroidery Machine - Louisa uses a Horizon Memory Craft 12000
Fabric and Notions Required

Fabrics and Notions Required:

  • 1 ½ yd. terry cloth
  • 1 ½ yd. flannel
  • 2 packages of extra wide bias binding
  • Embroidery thread of your choice
     
Instructions
  1. Cut a square of terry cloth by folding the fabric diagonally it will take about 1 ¼ yd. of fabric.
  2. Cut a square of flannel the same way.
  3. Layer them on top of each other wrong sides of fabric touching, pin and machine quilt.

     
  4. Machine quilt as desired I did a large grid to hold the two layers to each other. After machine quilting is completed cut excess of to make the terry cloth and the flannel same size! The towel is completed let’s start the hood.
  5. Cut an 11 ½” square of fabric from the flannel, the square folded over will create a triangle or the hood.

     
  6. But before attaching the hood to the towel we need to first embroider the child’s name on one half of the square. Once the embroidery is completed it is optional to add a piece of binding to the fold (or long edge) of the triangle, see photo of finished towels. Then pin the triangle to one of the corners of the completed towel.



  7. You are now ready to add the double fold binding to the towels add this on the terry cloth side and miter the corners as you go.



  8. Finish the binding by turning it to the flannel side use a nice embroidery stitch.

Around the Table Dresden Placemats
Saturday, December 17, 2016

I like the concept, but the directions are "sloppy." Nowhere in the supply list does it mention the felt or the batting (how much?). Also, I would never use a high loft batting in a placemat, or a table runner, as I think that it would be too unstable for a glass. The next time I make these, I will cut out the batting (I use flannel) and spray baste it to the wrong side of the Dresden plate before I put the Dresden plate on the felt to cut out. I have not yet washed the finished placemat, and am hoping that the single layer of felt does not curl up, or become distorted after washing/drying.

I made this today but your cutting directions need to be changed. You only need 4 of color 1 and color 3 4.5 squares for the triangles. Also the inner border, you only need 2 cuts as WOF is long enough to cut each in half to fit the sides.

Great Machine
Wednesday, August 30, 2017

I've had this machine for only a week now. I bought it used from a lady who makes her own clothes, but she no longer needed the machine. During the purchase, she noted that she is almost sad that it's better to give it away because of how well the machine performed. (I also bought it along side a computerized machine of another brand.} She demoed the machine for us, showing it worked and gave us everything (including the box it came in!) She took amazing care of this machine. I have used it a few times now, and the directions for threading were easy to follow (albeit my hands are quite large so the lower looper was a pain, but that is no fault to the machine or brand.) And I recommend this machine to anyone who wants to learn to serge and wants a machine that can grow with them. I will happily use this machine time and time again.

S9 Review
Sunday, February 25, 2018

I love, love, love my S9! It's sews and embroiders beautifully and it's simplicity of use amazes me. I would recommend this machine for both a beginner and an experienced seamstress. If I would ask anything of Janome it would be to upgrade the programming to run a larger hoop size. I understand that it can't get much wider but there is most definitely room for it to go longer. That is the only limitation of this machine.

I purchased a Memorycraft 15000 a few years ago and it was the best purchase I ever made! This machine can do just about anything you would would ever want! I love the capability of using the Acuedit app to set up my embroidery pattern on my Ipad and then download it to the machine! I love how my embroidery looks upon completion and I love all the good lighting it has to light up your workspace. That way you don’t need to worry about where to set up your machine. It also has plenty of room to do machine embroidery on any size quilts! There are many decorative stitches from which to choose that are outstanding! It’s hard to choose which one to use! There are so many great features it is hard to decide what I love the most. If you want to buy only one machine to last a lifetime, I would recommend this one!
