  • The Perfect Dress for Valentine's Day

    Laced Color Block Dress by Merrick

    Using the Janome Skyline S5 sewing machine, Maker Merrick White of Merrick's Art made this pretty color blocked lace dress for Valentine's Day after seeing a similar Betsey Johnson dress at Nordstrom

    This dress is perfect, unique and feminine for a Valentine's Day date and it also makes for a gorgeous Easter dress in a few months. You could make it in shades of pink and blush, like Merrick did, or in greens, blues, purples or yellows for a more festive spring look.

  • Embroidering with Aurifil and Janome

    1/3/2017

    Monogrammed Oven Mitts by Sew4Home

    For Sew4Home's first project of the New Year, they chose the Flourish Alphabet Monogram that is built into the Janome Memory Craft 500E. The beautiful embroidery was done with three colors of Aurifil 50wt cotton thread. This is a great gift for yourself or a friend who either just got married, moved into a new home or even renovated their kitchen. 

    Sew4Home mentions that the embroidered letter is optional, but the embroidery against the solid color fabric is a wonderful way to customize the look. These great mitts are sufficient for most hot dishes and general baking. Each mitt finishes at approximately 12 1/2" long and 7 1/2" wide.

  • 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.
