  • Fall Fiesta with the Skyline S9

    11/10/2016

    Machine Review and Fun Thanksgiving Project

    When we asked Janome Artisan Jen Schumann of iCandy Handmade to give our new Skyline S9 a try, she couldn’t have been more excited! From Jen’s experience with both the Skyline S5 and Skyline S7, she knew right away that the S9 would be amazing. She also never had an embroidery machine before, so she was super excited to finally give it a try for the first time.

    Since Jen was used to doing regular sewing, she decided to get out of her comfort zone and try the embroidery functions. She made a beautiful and fun Mexican fiesta style apron for Thanksgiving. Jen also mentions that the Anna Maria Horner Limited Edition Embroidery Collection box that was sent to her had everything she needed to create the beautiful embroidery design on her apron. Jen also noted that she used the wonderful built-in designs in the S9.

    Jen mentions at the bottom of her review that it was a fun and easy project using the Skyline S9. She does also mention that there were a couple of scary moments when her fabric got caught, but she was able to quickly fix it.

  • Skyline S9 Review

    11/9/2016

    By Jane Spolar of Quilt Poetry

    We were so excited for our Artisan Jane Spolar of Quilt Poetry to give the Skyline S9 a test. Some of Jane’s favorite features are the 9mm stitch width, one-step needle plate conversion capability, last stitch recall and adjustable knee lift. She also loves the Skyline S9’s AcuFeed™ Flex fabric feeding system that makes sewing light weight fabrics and multiple layers smooth and easily. There are no worries about fabric slippage.

    In addition, Jane talks about how much fun the new Anna Maria Horner Limited Edition Embroidery Collection starter kit is. She used it to give the Skyline S9’s new embroidery features a try. In the kit, you will find 18 spools of Iris polyester embroidery thread, three fun pieces of Anna Maria cotton fabric and a piece of knit fabric, stabilizer and a cute clothespin USB drive. In addition, she loved couching with the embroidery unit.

  • Love Not Hate Kite

    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.
