New Product: LED Light


USB-LEDOur popular LED light in two sizes!

Sometimes your extra-detailed work needs a little extra illumination. The Super Bright LED Compact light affixes to the underside of your sewing machine’s arm and casts a bright light onto your entire sewing project.

The light can be powered by the machine’s USB hub or a traditional outlet and the velcro backing and cord guide keeps the cable neat and organized. Finally you’ll have access to extra light without having to maneuver a desk lamp around your machine and sewing project. The Super Bright LED Compact measures just 2 1/2 inches, allowing it to fit on any model.

Super Bright Compact LED: 2 1/2 inches

Super Bright LED: 4 1/2 inches

Visit your local Janome dealer to purchase these great lights.

Hedgie Pin Cushion


hedgie26Make a softie hedgehog that can be a toy or a pin cushion!

This project is brought to you by Sam Hunter of Hunter's Design Studio.

Did you know you should change your sewing machine needle regularly? It's as important as changing the oil in your car. A dull needle can ruin your fabric, but it also makes your machine work harder than it needs to. Sam changes needles after every 8-10 hours of sewing.

If you don't like to dispose of your old needles in the trashbecaquse it might hurt someone. Make one of these hedgehogs and put all of your dead needles into an old pincushion. This design is fun because the used needles become part of the design. A hedgehog is the perfect needle-y critter!

Easter Egg Garland


easter-egg-garlandIt's time to make Easter decorations.

Get a jump on your Easter decorations by creating this adorable holiday swag. One can make as many or as few as needed.

Our Janome Educator, Valora Hammond, has designed and created this great Easter project for us to share with you. This project can be used for several applications. If you make and connect three eggs, you will have a cute door decoration. Make a bunch of eggs and you will have enough to create a swag for your mantle. Or a whole mantle can be adorned with a swag made of a multitude of eggs. And just one egg makes a great gift as a door knob decoration.

This project uses a Janome Memory Craft machine and digitizer MBX software. We’ve included step by step instructions with pictures to guide you through this project.

New Product: Oversized Buttonhole Foot


extra-large-buttonhole-foot-and-stabilizer-plate3New Product

In fashion, sometimes bigger is better, and buttons are no exception! This new buttonhole foot allows you to make a statement by adding oversized and exotic buttons to accent your garments.

Extra-large buttons are an ongoing trend in clothing but the standard buttonhole foot can't accommodate buttons over an inch long. The most common use for large buttons is on heavy winter coats, but this year you can see the trend in spring and summer garments, too. You could use it on rain coats, spring trench coats, or for closures on beach cover ups. Don't forget, if you're using an extra-large button, not only will the buttonhole need to be longer, but likely you'll have a longer button shank. Some machines come with a Button Shank Plate standard that you'll want to use to make sure your shank is long enough.

The new Oversized Buttonhole Foot and Stabilizer Plate can create buttonholes for buttons that are 1" - 2" (25-50mm) in diameter. It can be used on the Horizon Memory Craft 15000.

Part Number: 202199009

Spring Project


Sport Bottle project from Artistic


Do you lose track of your water bottle at the gym or lose it in a crowd of boring bottles? With this project not only will you never lose track your bottle again, but you will be the talk of the gym with your customized bottle.

It's easy to cut these from stick on vinyl and stick right to a plastic or metal water bottle. Choose from "Energy" (not pictured), "Workout Diva", or "This isn't sweat it's Sparkle" to make a statement while you get healthy! Download these already made designs or create your own using Artistic software and a digital cutter. It is easy to create your own design to accent your water bottles.

Click here to view the project and download the instructions and designs.

If you are new to Artistic software check out our line of videos with design ideas and how to videos on YouTube.

Another great use for this is if your children lose their water bottles at school or on their sports teams, you can put their names on them with sport specific designs.
