Every industry has an insider trade show, and for the sewing machine world that event is the VDTA/SDTA Convention and Show. Each year, Janome dealers from around the country meet to get new information on products and accessories, and to learn more ways to bring new ideas for sewing and embroidery home to share with their customers. This year, dealers gathered in New Orleans, LA, where Janome offered a range of educational events on many of their products.

Janome America was also very proud to have two of their dealers, and one employee entered into the VDTA/SDTA Hall of Fame, a singularly prestigious honor! Click "read more" to see the full article and find out who entered the Hall of Fame.
