Be The Difference Foundation was formed by four ovarian cancer survivors in different phases of survivorship who all share the same passion, to Be the Difference and end the fight against ovarian cancer.  Their mission is to help women increase their chance of survival of ovarian cancer by raising money to fund programs for better treatment options, effective early screening, symptomatic and genetic predisposition awareness, and a cure. 

Janome dealers, along with other independent sewing retailers, are also supporting the Foundation on its mission to help women increase their chance of survival of ovarian cancer.

PrintE-mail

Get the Horizon ABS Hardside Roller Case.

654-keep-your-machine-safe-a-secure-on-the-goWhat do the Horizon Memory Craft 12000, MC8900QCP, and the MC8200QC all have in common?

That great big bed space, which gives you all the room you need for those large scale projects.

They now have something else in common: a rolling hardcase that makes it so much easier to bring these machines along with you.

With a protective shell of lightweight, sturdy ABS plastic, the new Hardside Roller Case has special padding inside to keep your extra large Janome safe and secure. Your MC12000 embroidery unit rides along on top. And you can store your hoops and accessories in a convenient inner bag. 

The case opens from the front and middle, making it easier to place your machine inside. Just extend the telescoping handle to pull it along on easy rolling casters. And you're ready to transport your Memory Craft across the parking lot or through the hotel. The case also has sturdy side handles to make it easier to set it in the trunk.

To keep the hardside case from rolling away just set the convenient brake. You'll wish all your luggage was this easy to manuever. 

See the Horizon ABS Hardside Roller Case, and your other optional machine accessories, at your local Janome dealer.

PrintE-mail

It's quiet, powerful and precise – with top-of-the-line features.

652-new-mc9900-a-serious-sewing-machineThe Memory Craft 9900 sewing and embroidery machine has so many advanced sewing features, you could put away the embroidery unit and it would still be worth the price.

It sews up to 1,000 stitches per minute. It has 9mm stitch width. And it’s so very quiet—even at top speed.

You'll enjoy time saving features like the quick change needle plate that switches out in seconds without requiring a screwdriver.

The easy-threading bobbin case and cover plate mean there’s no need to pull long thread tails up and through when you first thread the machine. Or how about the new bobbin winder plate has its own cutting blade? Faster and smoother winding, a quick slice and you’re ready to drop it in.

The 200 built-in stitches include 6 buttonholes plus bar tack and darning stitches. You can customize and combine stitches in a multitude of ways. More than two dozen can be flipped horizontally. Use the Favorite Stitch setting or save your customized stitches to the internal memory or a USB memory stick.

Powered by Janome: Jill of Sew A Fine Seam

PrintE-mail

She's found her creative niche, offering handmade items and vintage finds.

646-powered-by-janome-jill-of-sew-a-fine-seamJill Flory describes herself as "the one who sews, and designs and dreams and decorates." She's one of the new breed of "mompreneurs"-- home-based entrepreneurs who are taking advantage of the web and social media to build a community and a business. And we're proud to say Jill does her sewing on a Janome Memory Craft 6600 Professional (and has a Janome serger).

Through her blog Sew A Fine Seam Jill she features sewing tutorials, unique items she has for sale in her Etsy shop, and decor ideas inspired by her flea market finds.

The name of her blog was inspired by the Bible verse "Whatever you do, do with all your heart, as to the Lord." (Col. 3:23). Jill reasoned that even if she was just sewing a simple seam, it was worth doing well.

Jill's mother taught her to sew when she was eight years old. She recalls that her first project was sewing a tiny dress for Barbie’s little sister. Since then sewing has always been a major part of her life, whether making her own creations or doing custom sewing for a client.

Jill says, "I delight in designing the items I create.  I love to get to know a client by digging through their blog and asking them questions about what they like or don’t like and then designing something just for them.  When it involves wonderful fabrics like fine linen and cotton and especially vintage fabrics I am truly in my element!"

She began sewing on a Janome right after she got married. Her mother gave her a basic model as a gift. But, Jill says, "A few year later I had put enough miles on it I wanted something a little more heavy duty and with a few more options.  Because I always had such great service from the shop my first Janome came from, I started there in my search for a bigger, better machine."

The machine that fill the bill with power, sewing room and features was the MC6600P. So Jill bought it from the same dealer and says she has been very happy with it.

Jill continues to be busy with clients and growing her blog audience. She says, "Coming up this year I have a few slip cover projects and at least one wedding to sew for.  Also pillows, bags, ruffled leggings, and whatever else I decide to sew to put in my Etsy shop!"

Visit Jill Flory's blog. See her Etsy shop. And find out more about her sewing machine, which is available at your local Janome dealer.

#1 Spring 2013 Fashion Trend: Lace!

PrintE-mail

This classic accent is back in style.

645-spring-2013-fashion-trend-laceThere was a time when lace was considered appropriate for lingerie trim only. But now this fabric (and trim) is staging a comeback, showing up on everything from sleek day dresses to frilly weekend tops.

Lace was huge on the runway previews for spring.  Valentino, Giambattista Valli, Bottega Veneta, and Burberry were some of the best examples. It is definitely a return to delicate, feminine dressing. Elle Magazine has an entire slideshow of the latest lace designs from New York's Fashion Week.

There are lots of great ways to wear lace. As one designer said, "I love the idea of lace detailing on skirts, pants and coats. Lace tops are great to pair with a structured blazer to offset the sweetness. A super easy way to integrate the lace trend into spring is a lace tight!"

You have a number of accessories for making sewing with lace easier on your Janome. For instance, a serger is perfect for this task. If you are using your 1200D serger, you'll want the Lace Attachment Guide.

The Ultimate Ruffler can attach lace while making gathers in your fabric. Watch the instructional video.

Or take a look at Jenny Haskins' Lace Glorious Lace embroidery designs.

And you can do many wonderful lace effects with Digitizer MBX embroidery software and your Memory Craft machine.

Your authorized Janome dealer will be happy to help you with the accessories and notions you need.
