So our Janome Canada booth at Creativ Festival in Mississauga, Ontario (Toronto) got a great new look last weekend! Our Central Canada Sales Rep, Amna, designed the booth decorations and we got lots of ooh’s & aah’s. It was a different backdrop to that boring show drape and our Canada 150 inspired quilt made by Tamara Kate was gracing centre position. On the table you will see Tamara Kate’s pillow. This is a smaller version of the wall quilt and instructions for how to make this will be available as a free download from our website next month. Subscribe to our janomelife blog and when these instructions are posted, you will be informed.

You will also notice the lovely Blue Fig Tamara Kate sewing luggage to the right of the table and below in another pic: roller tote, carry bag, notions bag and thread caddy (not shown). We already  did a post about these earlier – check it out if you missed or don’t remember that post. 

Tamara has done some wonderful creative things with us before: here and here and here.

We just love the little embroidered bicycle on these Blue Fig bags & totes – designed by Tamara Kate and digitized by Celine Ross, our Janome Educator in Montreal. Actually Tamara hails from Montreal as well.

So back to the Spring Creativ Festival last weekend…….it was a busy and fun show for us. So many of you stopped by the booth. It was lovely to spend time talking to you about our wonderful Janome machines and addressing your questions.  And there sure was lots of interest in our Limited Edition Canada 150 machine with maple leaf logo’s – sitting on the table under the wall quilt and next to the pillow and featured on this recent post. 

And we will be back in the very exact same spot next month……YES….. are you planning to attend Quilt Canada 2017 in Hall 1 at International Centre, 9600 Airport Road, Mississauga? Janome (one of the major sposnors of Quilt Canada) will be there again with lots to share & show on our Janome booth.

See you there.
