MORE SEWING SAMPLES TO INSPIRE

As promised, here are more pics of the simple wonderful sewing and embroidery samples I saw displayed in classrooms at our recent JANOME & ELNA Dealer Convention.

This is a clever mini wall quilt all embroidered in gold metallic thread......do you recognize at least 3 or 4 different embroidery designs from the JANOME MC15000? A pretty stunning piece of work.

Now these were not monochrome designs but with our fabulous new monochrome function on version 2 of the MC15000, we can switch any design over to a one colour design instantly. Note here how the educator who made this sample very cleverly mirror imaged the design  and positioned them so pleasingly to create a picture. Once again, metallic thread was used for the embroidery

    So beautiful, thank you for showing us these embroidery pieces. Would you know what brand the gold metallic thread was by any chance? I am wondering if it is also Janome brand.

    Beautiful designs! Where can I find out about the monochrome function? I am also intrigued by the large appliquéd monogram I see on a pillow, and would love to know how I can make large monograms like that on my Janome 15000.

      Hi Maria,

      Your local Janome dealer who sold you the Janome MC15000 should be able to teach you about this monochrome function. It is also in the Instruction manual which came with your machine – is one of the NEW icons on the edit screen in Embroidery mode. It came with version 2 of the MC15000. if you have version 1 you won’t have it but you should ask your dealer to assist you with the free update to version 2 for the MC15000.
      Ask your local dealer to enroll you in a class to learn how to do large monograms. I will also put this topic on my list of future possible blog posts so stay tuned!

      Good questions. Thanks for your interest in janomelife.
