Janome Canada is real happy to announce that 2 new tote bags that you have been asking for, have arrived and are now available at your local Janome or Elna dealer.



The first bag is a generous big bag for toting around your Janome MC500E or MC450E. So if you are planning to take this fabulous embroidery only machine to classes or a quilt/ embroidery retreat, this bag is probably exactly what you need. And we know many of you have been waiting for this! It is worth the wait. Check it out: It is big, sturdy and will protect your embroidery machine as you travel. It measures 20×26 inches x 17 inches high + the 4 wheels on the bottom of the bag (makes it 21 inches high in total)……so like I said, it is generous.

It has good, strong wheels and a telescoping handle for pulling along. It has 3 pockets inside (1 big mesh pocket with zipper)  for hoops and other embroidery goodies as well as straps for locking the Embroidery machine in place. And we like the contemporary black & white “orange peel” styling. The  bag has cushioning thick foam at the bottom as well as strong sides on all 4 sides and the top. The zipper opens up at the top and all the way down to the wheels for ease of getting your embroidery machine in & out. Really well designed.

This roller tote is also compatible with the Janome 400E and Janome 450E.  In all honesty, it could work for a bunch of different carry-around needs being so big and sturdy. It could easily fit TWO regular sewing machines + a bunch of sewing stuff. Or you could use it as a laundry hamper if you have to walk to the laundrette………….just saying.

The other bag has also been eagerly awaited by many of you and I know these are going to fly out the door so be sure to ask your local Janome, Elna or Artistic dealer to order you one before they sell out! Seriously……I flipped with delight when I opened up mine. NOW I have a fabulous carry tote with 2 wheels on the bottom of the one end to protect my Artistic Edge 15 Cutter when I am on the move. And I am so grateful to now have this fabulous new bag as the box that my cutter originally came in has travelled so much with me over the last few years that it is a miracle it even lasted this long. It is so patched up with packaging tape that I am pleased to be able to toss the box and replace it with this lovely tote:

The tote bag is a very pleasant light airforce blue colour with embroidered edge name & logo on the top. It also has a little name/address badge pocket with clear window on the outside of the bag.


The tote has 2 wheels & measures 32 x 10 x 10 inches with sturdy zipper which opens up 2 sides of the tote for easy access to the Edge cutter. This tote will accommodate either the Artisic Edge 15 or 12  inch Digital cutters. There is sturdy pressed foam inside to accommodate both sizes. There are also 2 large mesh zipper pockets in the lid as well as 2 more pockets on the inside of the tote. I was also super pleased to see a clever system for tucking the 12×12 or 15×15 cutting mats into the lid of the tote for easy and safe storage & moving. Lots of storage possibilities for all our cutter accessories.

This is PERFECT for taking to classes, retreats, the cabin, Scrapbooking crops/parties and more.
