Wow, I sure have been silent on this blog for more than a month – It has been a hectic one where I have been away from the office at 3 different shows + at dealer’s stores. I literally travelled across Canada from Vancouver Island to Nova Scotia! I have LOTS to share so will do more blog posts in the coming days & weeks so do check back often.
After Quilt Canada was over, I rented a car and drove almost 1500km around Nova Scotia. It was my first time there and I was determined to see as much as I could in less than 3 days!
I was motoring along the Ceilidh Trail (West Coast) of Cape Breton Island. I spied a store called Fiddle Stitches and did a little U turn to double-back to pop into the quilt store in the tiny town of Mabou.
Imagine my surprize when I discovered that the owner, Linda Campbell, runs a small quilt store with her main business doing custom quilting on a large frame. Guess what machine she uses and LOVES??? Her Janome 1600P!!! Co-incidence or what? Here is a pic of her standing next to her Janome 1600P. Thank you, Linda, for giving me permission to photograph you before I “raced” on to see the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. So glad you love your 1600P and I was able to get your feedback. Happy quilting!!
