  • Introducing the Skyline S5 Look Book 

    1/26/2015

    An Inspiration Guide from Your Favorite Janome Bloggers

    In celebration of the brand new Skyline S5 sewing machine launch in October, we asked 10 of our sewing bloggers to participate in an opportunity where they would borrow the machine for a couple of months and make a one-of-a-kind project. After making their projects, we asked them to write an honest review on their blogs about their personal experience working with the Skyline. The Janome team couldn't have been any more impressed with their finished projects. 

    In this book, you can view projects from Jane Spolar of Quilt Poetry; the Sew4Home team; Hayley Crouse of Welcome to the Mouse House; Caroline Hulse of Sew Caroline; Lauren Dahl of Baste + Gather; Maureen Cracknell of Maureen Cracknell Handmade and Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransson!. We also had bloggers Autumn Baldwin of It's Always Autumn; Jen Schumann of iCandy Handmade and Kelly Crawford of Sewing in No Man's Land make a project using the Skyline for STYLO magazine as inspiration for homemade children's clothes. 

    We hope you enjoy reading about our bloggers and their personal experience with the Skyline S5 as well as viewing beautiful photos of their unique projects in this book.

    A Tour Group Quilts with a Janome Machine

    On Thursday, January 15th, a tour group of about 35 people had the opportunity to make unique and creative quilt blocks at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky. As they were making their quilts, they used the Janome Memory Craft 8200QC. Everyone had a great time learning how to use the machine while making his or her quilts.
