Artistic Crystals: Party Time Take #2
It's "all about the bling" at this recent event sponsored by Auburn Sewing Center.
Are you ready to have a little fun? Go to an Artistic Crystals party put on by your Janome dealer.
We've recently introduced a whole 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. It makes placing crystals so easy and exact, you can let your creativity run wild.
We just heard from Janome Educational Coordinator Maddie Bushman about a recent Crystals Party put on by Auburn Sewing Center. They had so many people attend that they hosted it at an off-site location.
In keeping with the theme, everybody was given party hats and party horns. Maddie says, "Every time the attendees heard about a feature of the software that excited them they blew their horns. There was so much horn blowing that it seemed like it was New Year’s Eve."
The partiers each brought garments, which they embellished with Artistic Crystals. Maddie reports that some of them put two or three crystal designs on the same shirt. Everybody was enjoying the refreshments and really had a good time.
She says, "One thing for sure. Chris (the dealer) knows how to throw an Artistic Crystal Party."
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.

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.
