I recently visited Findlays Superstore in Vernon, BC.   Check out this link or search for their contact details on the dealer locator on our website: www.janome.ca > Find a Dealer in the top right corner of the homepage.

I love visiting this store as Findlay’s customers & staff are so welcoming and so enthusiastic about what I show & teach them on my visits. I also like the fact that many of the customers bring their projects for me to see so no prizes for guessing that I took some pics which I would now like to share with you!

KEEP THE SHOW & TELL COMING!!! And thank you to all the customers in Vernon,  and everywhere else on my travels, who are so willing to share the results of their creative journeys with their JANOME sewing & Embroidery machines + software. I just LOVE seeing what you all create. It certainly inspires & encourages me and I know that other people feel the same – so keep bringing it along whenever I am visiting your local dealer’s store or working at a Sewing show.

Gail is a loyal and enthusiastic customer at Findlay’s in Vernon. Here she shows the quilt she made using the Acufil Quilting system on her JANOME MC12000. Notice the quilting designs in the borders – it is easier to see it there than on the print but she did quilt the whole quilt using her AQ22 hoop. Well done, Gail, this is something you can be proud of!

You can see the JANOME Acufil Quilting even better in this close-up.

This was just lovely - Rose Anne is another customer of Findlay's in Vernon who owns a JANOME MC12000 with the upgrade to the ACUFIL QUILTING SYSTEM. Rose Anne brought this

This was just lovely- so bright & cheerful.  Rose Anne is another customer of Findlay’s in Vernon who owns a JANOME MC12000 with the upgrade to the ACUFIL QUILTING SYSTEM. Rose Anne brought this quilt top along as she wanted to ask for suggestions of how she could quilt it using her ACUFIL QUILTING HOOP.  Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt on my next visit, Rose Anne!
