Cynthia has been working with Janome Canada for a while and I know that many of you have seen some of her work firsthand as we carried some of Cynthia’s lovely Maker Series items around to show you at shows and Janome events since last Fall 2016. Cynthia lives in Beautiful BC and you are most welcome to check out her creativity on Instagram or on her website. Cynthia is a very creative lady who not only quilts but also designs fabric for Robert Kaufmann Fabrics and operates a Design/Graphics business as well. Janome is proud to be associated with Cynthia.
You might remember this quilt above from some years ago – in 2012 to be precise – ” Mr Crow ” made by Cynthia which was the FIRST place winner in a Janome quilt competition we held here in Canada.
We also mentioned Cynthia in a Book review we did on janomelife in June 2016 : Cheryl Arkison of Calgary, Alberta collated a rather nice collection of quilt artists and Cynthia was one of the quilters who is featured in this book with her “bacon” quilt. The book was called “You inspire me to quilt”
More recently was the simply lovely quilt and pillow below which Cynthia made for the Janome Maker series of machines and our Maker Look Book. See pages 3-6 for Cynthia’s contributions to this Look Book. I’m sure many of you will recognize these pieces from when we displayed them at shows around Canada or we held them up for you to admire at Janome Dealer events over the last 6-8 months. Cynthia designed the quilt in keeping with the colourful logo on the Maker series of machines (see below for machine pics).
And keep watching janomelife and more…….Cynthia is currently working on another project to inspire you……. Coming this summer………. Bet you can’t wait to see WHAT’S NEXT with Janome!
Love her work.. such vibrant colours!
