    Welcome the Spookiest Time of the Year

    The summer is coming to the end and everyone is excited for all of those fun fall activities, including the spookiest day of the year! As you begin to think about upcoming Halloween projects, Joanna Marsh of Kustom Kwilts and Designs made a quick and easy candy collecting tote bag for trick-or-treating that can be used for many years to come.

    Joanna used the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 8900QCP Special Edition machine to quilt the top of the bag and assemble it. Joanna also utilized the free motion capabilities that she was easily able to switch back to standard sewing stitches in seconds.

    This is a beginner to intermediate project that can be completed within three hours. Click here to learn how to make it using Joanna’s helpful step-by-step instructions.

    Make an Embroidered Pocket Pillow

    "I love all of the built-in designs on the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000 and I need a way to show them off. This pillow with a pocket for inserting designs works! 

    I like to recycle old clothes, especially those made of linen and silk. For this project, I repurposed a white linen skirt and a sheer silk chiffon overlay from another skirt. I then used the linen to make the pillow case and then the silk chiffon to make a see-through pillow pocket. The pocket insert is created on the MC15000 using one of my favorite built-in designs. Then, using the free download, I added a digitized square around it, turned it right side out and then there was a pocket insert! 

    Now, I can create any design I wish from my machine or designs that I've downloaded and insert them into my pillow for any holiday, season or mood." - Janome Artisan Milinda Stephenson of Milinda Sews
