SPOTLIGHT ON JANOME DEALER: ANDERSONS SEWING CENTER, KAMLOOPS, BC

2

I recently paid a visit to Anderson’s Sewing Center in Kamloops, BC. The ladies made little mug rugs using several of our Janome & Elna sewing, quilting and embroidery machines. The purpose of the event was for interested customers to try out several different machines to see which ones they preferred: just like test driving a car before deciding which one you might like to buy. The project involved Acufil quilting; applique using the Janome Applique foot (AP); applique-in-the hoop using either the Janome MC9900 or Janome MC15000 + a little embroidery of a word or 2 like Coffee or Tea time.

      Hi Robyn,
      WE couch a yarn against the trimmed edge of the mug rug using a zig-zag stitch of SW 5.5 or 6. Zig/left needle position into fabric & zag/right needle position off yarn in “fresh air”. A very effective edge treatment.
