Kathy, one of the customers attending Janome Days, is proud of her quilt which she made in one of the many classes offered in this store: to learn all about how to use the incredible Janome Acufil Quilting system. Most of the quilting was done in the ASQ22 hoop as well as decorative stitching in the ditches.

Another quilt on the wall - made by staff member, Donna who cut all the appliques with the Artistic Edge cutter and used Simple Cut software to digitize the applique-in-the-hoop.

I did not want to believe Lillian when she told us that this was her very first quilt. She took the class at Snip and Stitchto make the quilt as well as learn how to use her Janome MC15000 with its incredible ACUFIL QUILTING SYSTEM to quilt the entire quilt. WELL DONE, Lillian!

A close up to show the Acufil quilting - SO quick and easy to let our Janome MC15000 embroidery machine and ASQ22 Acufil hoop do the work instead of causing stress to our shoulders and necks by other quilting methods!

And don’t you agree with me that the varigated quilting thread works so beautifully?
