Artistic Crystals: Party Time!
Crystals, creativity and fun at the Atlantis in Reno.
Janome dealer Rays Sewing Center of San Jose, held their annual sewing retreat this year at the beautiful Atlantis hotel in Reno, Nevada. More than 60 attended the event doing all kinds of sewing, quilting and embroidery. Classes were offered on all things Janome, including software, machine techniques, design, and construction.
This year the event featured our line of Artistic products, including the software program called Artistic Suite V6. It does cutwork, appliqué, monograming, embroidery, cross stitch, photo stitch, and crystal application.
Janome Educator Maddie Bushman, who was at the event says, "You may not have heard about the nifty new part of the sewing suite: crystal application. The Artistic software allows the artist to bling an embroidery design to life!"
How Artistic Crystals Work
The software makes it easy to create a template so the crystals will go where you want them. It then works with a hot press to activate the glue. And then you can place all your crystals at once--much easier than applying them one at a time.
Watch the how-to video: Create A Crystal Design.
You can use any of the thousands of designs in the software or make your own shapes to create fun and interesting designs with crystals. Write out words or make hearts or butterflies--it all just takes a few minutes.
Janome dealers around the country have been offering crystal parties. If you haven't been to one, contact your local dealer to see when they'll be holding theirs.
Thanks again to Rays Sewing Center and the ladies who shared their sparkling creations.
