CANADA CELEBRATES 150 YEARS SINCE CONFEDERATION……and Janome celebrates with a Special Edition sewing machine. 

150 years … That’s something to celebrate !!!Logo 150e

The logo of 150-M100QDC Special Edition for Canada’s 150th, was designed by Canadian artist Tamara Kate who is one of our Janome Artisans as well.

Throughout Canada’s history, generations of seamstresses have adopted the art of quilting for practical and creative purposes. Canada’s quilt guilds are a great way to meet friends who share this passion. There is a HUGE celebration and charity quilting project currently underway with the Canadian Quilters Association/ACC with the BIG QUILT BEE .  Quilters all over  Canada – and beyond – are currently busy making blocks, quilt tops and quilting (hopefully) 1000 quilts to donate to Ronald MacDonald Houses across Canada.

Discover Canada’s quilt organizations. You will find inspiring galleries, a variety of quilt resources and membership information on Associations websites.

The Canada 150 ( M100QDC) is stylish yet powerful. To appreciate the characteristics and the electronic functions that make this machine a dream, it is best to sit down at the machine and sew!  Watch for a further post where Celine presents her samples and project!

  1. Hello,

    I found this post last night. I haven’t had a chance to digitize the official Canada 150 logo yet and this one is beautiful.

    I know you have said that you would post it in June, but I still don’t see it and I’ve looked through every posted from the date of this article up to today.

    I’m wondering if I’ve missed something. Maybe you can point me in the right direction?

    Also, I did make sure I’ve subscribed to you email list.

      It will be available very soon on our website and has indeed been available at our Janome Canada dealers for some time. You may ask any Jnaome dealer to email the designs to you or download them when they have been uploaded. I will post notifying of their availability online as soon as this is done.

    I can’t wait for the maple leaf design, I sure hope it will be available soon so I can make a few items for Canada Day with that design on them!


  3. I’m looking forward to your design becoming available. I hope it’s before July 1st.
