Janome Canada is pleased to announce that Yvonne Menear has joined us as a part time Educator to assist us with selected events and shows here in Canada. Yvonne is a talented and skilled lady whose sewing passion lies in embroidery and quilting software & Digitizing. Her workshops and lectures have included topics on quilting, machine embroidery, digitizing, basic computer skills, embroidery software and more. Yvonne is also an Electric Quilt Instructor and author of the EQStitch companion book. She has taught at Quilt Festival in Houston as well as at shows and dealer stores across North America.
Her Craftsy class on Classic Machine Embroidery is a “must watch” for any person wishing to learn very good information about machine embroidery. Yvonne demonstrates these basic embroidery techniques on a Janome Embroidery machine too! Good news is that this Craftsy workshop is free. We have blogged about this before as we felt it was too good to not know about it! check out this link. And we also shone our janomelife spotlight on Yvonne some time back – here. You might also want to check out her website.
Yvonne is a Freelance Educator well known in the Sewing and Embroidery world in Canada and beyond. She also has a loyal following of machine embroiderers who attend her popular Embroidery Club once a month in Langley, BC.
A big thank you to Yvonne who has digitized some lovely maple leaf designs especially to celebrate and use with our Canada 150 projects. These designs will be available soon as a free .jef format download from our website. We will alert you when they are ready for downloading. Please watch your inbox for notification of when these designs will be available.
