CREATIVE FUN AT JANOME STORES ACROSS WESTERN CANADA Part 2

Janome Days at Snip and Stitch, Nanaimo is always a huge amount of fun for me, the staff and the customers. Customers bring their Show & Tell projects for garment sewing /sergers; software & embroidery projects for the Embroidery Soiree session; and sewing and Quilting too. I am always so thrilled to see the high level of expertise and creative talent of our Janome Canada customers.

This quilt is one of the classes currently on offer at this store: amongst other things taught at this class is the use of the Artistic Edge 15 Digital cutter – NO need whatsoever to waste time cutting out all those fiddly little bits of fabric for this quilt. No, the Edge Cutter takes all the aggravating part out of the process and makes everything so much easier and more fun!

Julie, a new Janome customer at Snip and Stitch, showed us her lovely table topper - actually I think she said it was a large table napkin? Julie used built-in embroidery designs on her Janome embroidery machine.

Margaret brought this lovely fish all done with applique and Angelina fibres on the water to make it look shimmery. Margaert was super interested in the Artistic Edge 15 cutter as she wants a tool which will help her cut all these intricate applique shapes AND digitize the applique stitches. The Artistic Edge 15 Digital cutter is just the tool to accomplish this!

Diane made the little pink bag after a recent class with me at Snip and Stitch and then had way too much fun making all the other little baggies with the selvedges on her quilting fabric! Waste no, want not - for sure.

Diane also made this very clever bag for her sewing supplies for taking to classes etc See the next pic for how it opens up cleverly stands rather like some of those tablet covers
