As promised…..here are some lovely Show & Tell projects from customers at Snip & Stitch Sewing Center, Nanaimo.
Stephanie holding up her cross stitch embroidery: she converted this hand cross stitch pattern into machine embroidery cross stitch.
Dianne is proudly holding the bag she made with funky cats.
Another bag with machine embroidery, rouching & dec. stitching – this one made by Joan who proudly holds it up.
Kathy is the owner of Snip and Stitch Sewing Centre. She is holding up the janomelife fleece book giveaway that Doreen won at the end of January in our blog draw.
Donna Mae holds up her quilt which was made totally with left overs from another project and free motion quilted with feathers……I have named Donna Mae a “free motion Queen” as she does such lovely feather stitching
Donna who was visiting from the BC Interior showed us a set of placemats that she had made for a gift …… bet we all wish we could be her friend?!
This delightful chicken & rooster quilt was a long standing UFO but is now finished and proudly displayed by Dorothy. You can’t see it but the quilt backing was a fabric with a chicken coop wire pattern….so appropriate.
Jackie tells us about her Christmas cross stitch done with her Janome Embroidery machine.
It is so wonderful to see all the creativity and beautiful projects that people all over Canada make. What have you made recently?

How do I find out how to use my Janome to convert crossstitch patterns?
This is quite aN involved and intermediate to advanced software exercise. The lady I featureD in the blog post is pretty accomplished advanced with a few brands of embroidery software.
Unfortunately it is not something I can address in this forum. However, you could approach your Janome dealer to see if they might offer you a class or one-on-one lessons on this topic. You could also approach Trevor Conquergood at http://www.sunsetstitches.com for assistance. I believe he may be happy to provide you with lessons. I remember Stephanie telling me she had received assistance from Trevor when she digitized those aboriginal design fish cross stitch patterns shown in the blog post. I know it was a challenge for her and took many hours of work until she was satisfied with the results.
Great projects ladies.
Loved the “show and tell”! Hope to see more of these.
