Now Available At Select Janome Dealers: Oliso Smart Irons

PrintE-mail

"Makes ironing easy, even a little fun." Martha Stewart Living

787-now-available-at-select-janome-dealers-oliso-smart-ironsIroning probably isn't your favorite thing to do. But you can't avoid it, if you work with fabric.

So the next best thing is to get one of the award-winning irons from Oliso that makes it so easy, you might even start enjoying it.

Oliso's line of Smart Irons have a feature called iTouch. This unique technology not only makes it much easier to iron, it also makes the whole process safer. An Oliso can tell if your hand is touching the iron handle. So if you're in the middle of ironing a piece of cotton and let go of the handle, the iron instantly extends patented Scorchguards--little feet that lift it off the fabric. Touch the handle and the iron lowers itself onto your fabric for uninterrupted pressing.

This means you never have to leave the iron resting on its heel and never have to worry about countless other safety risks that come with a scorching hot iron plate. With an Oliso you never worry if you accidentally leave the iron turned on or if it tips over.

Best of all, it reduces strain on wrists and shoulders caused by repetitive lifting. Other features include digitally controlled temperature for precise heating, continuous steam for crisp results with horizontal and vertical bursts of steam, a premium stainless steel soleplate with more steam holes for consistent steam flow, a large 12.7 ounce side fill water tank, ergonomic design, and a rounded detailer tip to squeeze in tight corners and cuffs.

Right now the entire line of Oliso Smart Irons with iTouch are available at select Janome dealers. Check with your local dealer to see if they carry Oliso.

The Night The Horizon Memory Craft 15000 Was Unveiled To The World

PrintE-mail

How "the next big thing" in sewing & embroidery made its worldwide debut.

786-the-night-the-mc15k-was-unveiled-to-the-worldOn Sunday, August 26, more than 1,200 Janome dealers and representatives from around the world filled the Brasilia Ballroom at the Rio in Las Vegas. They had gathered to kick off a week of intensive Janome training. But the big thing they'd been waiting for this evening--after months of anticipation--was to get their first glimpse of the newest Janome top-of-the-line machine.

The big moment arrived when the following clip filled the jumbo video screens above the stage. After a real Las Vegas countdown, they got big view of the new machine. (Maybe a little bigger than real life thanks to the magic of special effects.) 

Watch "The Big Reveal" of the Horizon Memory Craft 15000 on our YouTube channel.

Anywhere You Want To Go
The exciting thing about the machine is that it can take your sewing, quilting and embroidery projects to a whole new level--creatively, anywhere you want to go.

So the crowd at Janome Institute 2013 was introduced to many of the new features on the MC15000 in a series of videos that look at the machine through the eyes of a quilter, an embroidery enthusiast, a professional garment seamstress, and a home decor enthusiast.

All four videos are also on our YouTube channel:
Quilting video
Embroidery video
Garment video
Home Dec video

Mark your calendar for October 1st, when you local participating Janome dealer will unveil the Horizon Memory Craft 15000 in person. And you'll get the chance to see it and try it out for yourself. Find your nearest Janome dealer.

New Project: Knit Or Crochet Travel Bag By Luveta Nickels

PrintE-mail

Turn one old pair of jeans into an ideal travel bag for your knitting or crocheting.

785-new-project-knit-or-crochet-travel-bag-by-luveta-nickelsDenim jeans continue to be America's favorite casual way to dress. And Luveta Nickels and her Junk Jeans team continue to thinking up creative ways to use them when they're worn out.

This time she's created a travel bag that's perfect for taking your knitting or crocheting along with you. (And you have to take it along with you or you'll never get it done.) The knitting needle sleeve will accommodate 10" or 12" knitting needles and the jean pocket featured on the back is perfect for scissors and crochet hooks.

The Knit or Crochet Travel Bag project can be made with one old pair of jeans, requires beginner-to-intermediat sewing skills, takes 2 to 3 hours to construct, and can be made on any Janome sewing machine. (Luveta used her MC12000 sewing and embroidery machine.)

Luveta and her husband have a working cattle ranch, so worn out jeans aren't in short supply. But she's gone above and beyond to build her stash. Read more about the Junk Jeans People

New Accessory: Edge Guide Foot For Top Loading Models

PrintE-mail

The perfect accessory for a scant 1/4" seam.

784-new-accessory-edge-guide-footUntil now this foot with an amazingly accurate adjustable guide was available only for 9 mm machines. But now you can get the Edge Guide Foot For Top Loading Machines.

There are a number of quilting feet that have edge guides set at 1/4" or 1/8" inch. But the the Edge Guide Foot lets you set that distance yourself.

By turning the dial you can adjust the position of the fabric guide to a fraction of an inch. So if you're picky about your scant 1/4" seam allowance, this is the accessory for you.

Of course quilters will love this foot. But it can also be used on many edge-stitched sewing projects. Because it allows you to perfectly place stitches along edges and seams, it's great for tucks, hems and fine edge work such as on lace or ribbon or a decorative edge.

Find the Edge Guide Foot (Top Loading Models) and all other optional accessories at your local Janome dealer.

PrintE-mail

Cute and so easy to make. A great gift idea.

783-new-project-personalized-newborn-baby-bibs-by-quilt-escapesWhen you have a newborn, you can never have too many bibs.

Louisa Smith of Quilt Escapes has created a Personalized Newborn Baby Bibs project that's so easy, you'll be able to make a whole stack in an afternoon.

In addition to being adorably personalized, these bibs are designed to come on and off with just one hand. Something a new parent will really appreciate when he or she is trying to hold the baby, the food, burp cloth, etc., etc.

Using some fun prints and your Janome sewing and embroidery machine, you can make one in about an hour, using beginner sewing skills. The pattern is included with the online instructions.

An in-demand quilt instructor, Louisa Smith has developed several unique teaching methods, including "Color, Design and Theme" and "Strips 'n Curves." The latter is the subject of her first book of the same title. She now has three books out: Strips ‘n Curves, A New Twist on Strips ‘n Curves, and One Patch Plus. She does her quilting and embroidery on Janome machines--the Memory Craft 11000 and Memory Craft 6600P.
