  • AMH M100 Review

    12/19/2016

    By Lauren Taylor

    Lauren Taylor of LLadybird works for Anna Maria Horner’s Craft South store in Nashville, TN. When the Anna Maria Horner M100 sewing machine launched in October, we could not wait to get it into Lauren’s hands. She mentions in her review that the AMH M100 is easy to use, has some fun features and is just plain adorable! 

    Lauren loved the machine’s built-in stitches that included a lot of hearts, swirly and girly characters. She appreciated that there wasn’t an overwhelming number of stitches. The machine also comes with several useful feet and accessories along with extra bobbins, spool caps, a seam ripper and more! 

    Lauren also enjoyed the threading function on the machine as it was super easy and there are numbers and arrows to direct you through the thread path. In addition, she mentions that the bobbin can also be wound without the foot pedal.

  • Good Tidings Pillow

    12/14/2016

    The Season of Comfort and Joy

    "Nothing says comfort like plaid flannel. I love recycling leftover fabric. This one is from pajama pants I made for my children when they were little and the wool from a skirt we used as a costume in a production of Our Town. The fabrics went together perfectly for this pillow. The finished product brings me great joy and happy memories. 

    I digitized the letters using my Digitizer software and embroidered on the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000. The lettering download is free and sized for the MC15000's 9" x 9" hoop. It can be used for bags, pillows or pajama shirts. Let your imagination soar!" - Janome Maker Milinda Stephenson of Milinda Sews

    Perfect for that Warm Winter Drink

    "I love the winter holidays. It is true that the weather is a bit gray and gloomy and the sun rises later and sets early, but it is the perfect time to dream and sew. Some of my favorite projects are created from thrown-away wool sweaters. To prepare for craft projects, I stash the wool sweater into the hottest water my washing machine can produce and then toss it at the highest heat into my dryer. To get the feel of wool felt, I do it all over again.

    Sewing mug rugs are one of my favorite projects. I find myself searching for one every morning as I drink my tea and read my morning news. It protects my desk and just looks warm and cozy. 

    I like the look of red and white Swedish embroidery and while I don't have a loom, I thought I would try for a similar look on the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000. I digitized the design using Digitizer software and then embroidered it on the machine. It's perfect for a cold winter's day!" - Janome Maker Milinda Stephenson of Milinda Sews

    DIY Drop Shoulder Cardigan

    "We're finally heading into sweater weather here in California and I couldn't be more excited. I'm always on the hunt for a good cardigan sweater and just the other day decided to try my hand at making one. It turns out it was really easy! I ran across some ribbed knit fabric at Jo-Ann's and it was the perfect thing to make a comfy slouchy cardigan. Paired with ankle boots, a scarf and a cute bag - this makes the perfect comfortable outfit." - Janome Artisan Merrick White of Merrick’s Art 

    Merrick made this fashionable cardigan with the Janome Skyline S9 machine. Make one for yourself or your daughter by following Merrick’s step-by-step instructions. It is perfect to pair with your favorite jeans for a lovely mother-daughter lunch date, a Sunday brunch with friends, or even a casual Friday at work.
