  • Janome Designer Challenge

    5 yards of fabric and 72 hours

    We challenged three of our Educators to come up with a new project using the same fabric. We gave each Educator 5 yards of fabric, assigned a category and 72 hours to complete their design. Erin Schlosser made the Simplicity Dress. Danielle Wilkes made the Thrifty Table Linens. Kelley McKenzie made the Trip Around the Block Quilt. Which do you like best?

  • Summer Project

    Beat the Heat Tank Top

    Caroline Hulse of www.sewcaroline.com has made this project and shared the instructions for the Janome community. This tutorial will show you how to take an existing tank that you love to wear, rub off the pattern, and create a tie back tank that is perfect to beat the heat in this summer. The great thing about this project is that it can be done on any Janome sewing machine and is a great way to upcycle an old tank top.

    These instructions were written for an adult, but the same method can be used to create a tank top for the little one in your life!

  • Vermont Quilt Festival 2014

    36 MyStyle 100's were given to Young Quilters

    To encourage young people to get into the art of quilting, the Vermont Quilt Festival accepts entries in the Youth quilt category. At the Quilt Festival in 2009, Dave LaValley of Bittersweet Fabrics, surprised everyone when he gave away a MyStyle 100 to all 5 kids that entered a quilt. In the following years, the Festival has seen steady growth in the youth category and Dave gives away machines to each entry. This year, 36 quilts were entered by kids ranging from 4-16. All 36 youth quilters received a Janome MyStyle 100 in recognition of their work and to help them continue their journey.

    Dave is proud to give away these machines, “I wanted to do something special for these young quilters. The Janome MyStyle100 is a real sewing machine. I tell them that they no longer have to sew on their mom’s machine, because they have one of their very own now.”

    Concealed Zipper Foot

    Good quality ready to wear garments will often have an invisible zip fitted. These zippers are often neglected by the home dressmaker which is a pity because they can ensure success every time. Invisible zips are suitable for all fabrics from fine silk jersey through to suit weight wools and tweeds. The key is to get the needle as close to the fastener as possible, which this foot accomplishes by slightly unrolling the zipper just before the needle. Once fitted, a well sewn invisible zipper will merely look like part of the seam.
