Entrance to the show gives you 2 ballots for 2 separate draw drums……more chances to win LOTS of prizes sponsored by the many very generous sponsors of Quilt Canada 2016.

Janome is one of those sponsors! There will be more than 120 Janome Skyline S7 and Janome Horizon MC8200 machines for workshop attendees to use as they learn exciting new techniques from a dazzling array of teachers. Janome has also sponsored several of the Awards for prize winning quilts so I can’t wait to find out who the talented and worthy winners of these prizes will be……this will be announced on Tuesday 14th June at the Awards Ceremony to be held at The International Center Conference Centre in room  Phoenix A.  Anyone is welcome to attend and share in the excitement!

    I’m going to be taking one of the workshops at CQA and I’m anxious to “test drive” one of these machines.

      Hi Rolanda,

      Glad to hear you will be at Quilt Canada. Not sure which workshop you will be taking but it may be in a room with Janome machines so you would “test drive” either the Skyline S7 or Horizon MC8200 – depending which machines are in that room. ENJOY! You may obviously go to the Janome booth at any time during the show and ask our staff & dealers there for information on any of our Janome models.

      See you next week!
