Some of you may know that I was very privileged to go to Japan for our INTERNATIONAL EDUCATOR’S MEETING at the end of June. It was a lot of fun meeting up with & learning together with the Educators from many other Janome subsidiary companies: Janome UK, Janome America, Janome Australia & Janome Europe as well as with many staff at our JANOME factory in Hachioji, Japan (just outside Tokyo).
During part of our meeting, we made a very cute little purse ……wish I knew where we could find the purse “fixings” that seem to be so readily available in Japan?
The Sashiko embroidery design is one of the built-in designs on the JANOME MC 15000. We hooped up one full hoop after repeating & lining up/positioning the sashiko motifs. There was a second hooping with half of the first repeated to make the design go around to the other side of the bag…….can’t show you that yet but will do so in the Fall when all is revealed!!
We were given a rather lovely gift at our Farewell dinner at the Educator’s Conference in Japan: this very practical eye glass case above.
More about the JANOME ESSENTIAL HOOP RE 18 will follow shortly but to whet your appetite, see eye glass project above + pic below.
Wanted to share these 2 projects as part of our August Techniques & projects spot. Hope you like them…….more to come.
