Yes, it is that time of the year again, we look back and we get ready to move forward.
We have had another busy Janome year here in Canada. Lots to do, lots of new machines; sewing and quilting shows to attend across Canada and many great Janome sewers, embroiderers and quilters to meet.
SO…….what lies ahead for 2017 with Janome? Please be sure to stay tuned to janomelife blog and at your local Janome Dealer for news of who & what is coming. My lips are sealed for now but there will be exciting things……there always are!
And you are sure to see special things planned for and made in celebration of Canada’s BIG year: Canada 150 plans are underway. Yes, Canada will be celebrating 150 years since Confederation of our unique and very special country. We are super proud to be Canadian and 2017 is certainly a big and important milestone for us. I will definitely be incorporating some of this Canadian pride into some of our 2017 samples.
The Canadian Quilters Association CQA/ACC is also planning big things to celebrate. There will be a BIG QUILT BEE at Quilt Canada 2017 next June in Toronto. Janome is one of the major sponsors of Quilt Canada 2017. Quilters all over Canada are currently busy making blocks and quilts. The aim is to donate 1000 quilts to Ronald McDonald House for distribution to families with sick children across Canada. CQA/ACC needs your help to achieve the goal of 1000 quilts!
