GAINING INSPIRATION FROM OTHER PEOPLE’S SEWING PROJECTS

Are you still on your patio drinking that tall, cold glass of something…..and embroidering up a storm (see janomelife post on 25th July). I am too……seriously…….I can type up blog posts on my laptop on my patio!

I thought I would share a bunch of pics to inspire you to go get a pen & notepad to scribble down sewing and embroidery projects you might like to tackle this Fall on your Janome sewing and embroidery machines. Most of the pics were taken at some of our International Janome Educator’s Conferences so gives you a great overview of great Janome sewing.

Hope you enjoyed the array of Janome educator projects – mostly made by the Education Dept in Tokyo. Really gives us inspiration to finish that long tall glass & get cracking with sewing & embroidery, does it not?

    Looking for some tips on doing cross stitch on the 15000. For example, should I have the machine cut the threads? In the back of my mind I remember someone saying to turn the thread cutter off but I don’t know if that’s accurate or why that would be the case. The above examples are just beautiful. Thank you for continuing to inspire!

      Hi Ceil,

      I prefer to switch off the thread cutter when doing cross stitch designs and manually clip the jump stitches as it takes too long to stitch out if it cuts and I end up with too many cut threads on the back.

        Thank you! Yes, I guess it’s those cut threads on the back that need to be avoided.

        Actually it is the extra time on the stitch out that bothers me more but then I’m a quick-sticks girl! Cross stitch does take longer than other embroidery stitch outs so perhaps I am just being impatient. In the end it is your preference.
