    Fiber Art with Fabric Scraps and Chain Stitch

    “One of my favorite things to do with scraps is to use them for fabric art. I save all of my smallest sewing scraps and the run-off from serging and creating collages which are secured in place with stitching. I had an idea to use the chain stitch function on the Janome CoverPro 2000CPX for the stitching and I am thrilled with the results of my latest piece.” – Janome Artisan Ajaire Parello of Call Ajaire

    Ajaire made a beautiful kite for her cousin’s most recent event where they auctioned off pieces of art to raise money for a mural in a local school.

  • Pumpkin Applique

    10/24/2016

    Perfect for Fall Projects

    “Although cool weather is just a promise here in Florida, the pumpkins are still ripe and the holiday season is upon us. My daughter loves decorating her new house with seasonal towels and pillows so I digitized this pumpkin applique as part of her Halloween decorations. I plan to also use it on overalls for my grandson and a t-shirt for my niece. I used the Artistic Edge Digital Cutter for my applique design and sewed it out on the Janome Skyline S9 using my favorite hooping feature – magnets. I hope you all enjoy it!” – Janome Artisan Milinda Stephenson of Milinda Sews

  • The Perfect Addition to Your Fall Wardrobe

    Made with the Skyline S9

    We were super excited to get the new Skyline S9 sewing and embroidery machine into the hands of our Artisan Merrick White of Merrick’s Art. Merrick’s projects consist of cute and trendy outfits, so she couldn’t wait to create a DIY Bell Sleeve Swing Dress for this season. 

    Merrick mentions in her review that most of her projects require basic techniques, but the Skyline S9 includes a number of great features that are helpful in creating a smoother sewing experience. Some of Merrick’s favorite features on the S9 are the superior needle threader, automatic foot lift, the variety of stitches, full color LCD touchscreen and the built-in embroidery function. Merrick also mentions that the wide foot pedal was super helpful because her foot did not slip off.
