Darian at RED DEER SEWING CENTRE in Red Deer, Alberta has sent me pics of a really great project she made on the JANOME SKYLINE S5  sewing machine. I thought I’d share the pics with you.

Red Deer (in case you don’t know) is approximately halfway between Calgary & Edmonton…..I have driven that road many, many times over the years & love visiting this store with owners Rolly & Karen and staff like Darian (who made this sample). I also thoroughly enjoy meeting customers at this Red Deer store…..we’ve had some fun over the years including their Christmas lunch last December when I was lucky enough to be town to join in! Incidentally, Red Deer Sewing Center is one of our top Janome dealers in Canada. Consistently, year after year, they keep sewers & quilters in their area of Alberta happily sewing, quilting & embroidering. S5 sample 4Darian used decorative stitches on the JANOME SKYLINE S5 sewing machine to embellish the “buildings” in her sample. How clever is that! And I’ll bet it was a lot of fun too.

She also made great applique letters for the wording . Darian used a digital cutter to cut the fabric too. Can you imagine having to cut out those letters with a pair of scissors? SO fiddly…..but a pure delight to use a digital cutter like our brand spanking new Artistic Edge 15 Digital cutter which will cut all those letters including the fusible web backing in a matter of a minute or 2…….seriously, it is that fast!  Red Deer Sewing Centre has promoted our digital cutters for a long while and will very soon have our new model in stock: the Artistic Edge 15 Digital cutter.

I am totally loving the simplicity and speed at which I can create any shape I want in the Artistic Simple Cut software (which comes with the cutter): hearts, letters, leaves, flowers…..and then cut my fabric out, rip off the release paper on the back & fuse onto my project. SO easy and less time consuming than other methods.  Of course, this digital cutter does not only cut fabric – it also cuts paper, card stock, vinyl, templates for many purposes such as etching glass, crystal & rhinestone application and sew much more.

This Artistic Edge 15 Digital cutter is now available in Canada at participating authorized Janome dealers.

The buildings are appliqued onto the background and the heavy black line with skyline machine emblem above the buildings was stitched with stitch #45 in Mode 1.
