We shine the spotlight on Janome Canada Artisan: Andrea Ford of RE:Style Studio

Andrea shared a series of great posts with us some months back on PIPING – specifically adding piping to home decor and upholstery sewing projects. If you missed these posts, do check them out: there were 4 in total during the month of May 2017 starting 4 May running each Thursday of May. Here is a link to the first of the 4 posts. 

Andrea runs the Re:Style Studio in Toronto Ontario : Modern DIY Workshops; Custom Upholstery; Made to order Furniture.  RE:Style Studio offers a host of personalized furniture services including re-upholstery, refinishing and made to order furniture from her growing proprietary collection of ottomans, headboards and bespoke upholstered furniture. All upholstery and refinishing is done on site by the small and growing team. Projects are given individual attention with short turn around times.

RE:Style Studio’s award-winning workshops are an elevated DIY experience with modern surroundings, gourmet snacks + meals, and forward-thinking techniques for traditional trades. Participants arrive with minimal supplies and leave with worthwhile, full-sized projects of various disciplines. RE:Style Studio decor workshops are powered by Janome Canada using the Janome 1600P machines.

Andrea was one of the contributors to our Summer 2017 Look Book entitled Cross Canada Picnic. She made a set of really cool French style picnic pillows which may be found in our Look Book. which is shown in the pic above and at the top of this post. We would like to point you in the direction of the full instructions of how Andrea made these pillows: These may be found on www.janomemaker.com 

Thank you to Andrea, one of our Janome Canada artisans,  for sharing her expertise with us.
