I’m thrilled to introduce you to our new Janome & Elna Educator in BC, Canada: Anne-Margaret Vose of Chilliwack, BC. I met Anne-Margaret some time back where she is a customer at one of our local Janome stores.  Her show & tell projects at store events were impressive and she was so confident and funny when she told us about her makes!

I have now had the privilege of working with her a couple of days over the past few weeks as she learns the ropes and helps us sew our Fall samples. She is such fun to work with –  Her happy, bubbly nature and “can-do” attitude is infectious and has a way of generating a positive atmosphere around her. I’m so looking forward to working closely with you, Anne-Margaret……Welcome to the Janome team!

I would love to show you what she has already made for our Fall sample collection in just 1 short week but you will have to remain in suspense for a bit  –  The new samples are under wraps until we see you at Dealer stores and shows this Fall! However, I can show you some pics that Anne-Margaret shared with me recently.

Anne-Margaret’s cute machine embroidery applique quilt

Anne-Margaret received her first sewing machine for her 10th birthday from her Dad. She attended sewing classes and spent a lot of time sewing with her Aunt. Since then she has made clothes,  crafts, her wedding dress and her daughter’s graduation dress.  She started quilting about 5 years ago and is loving it! She has created over 100 quilts for friends and for charity. She tells us that she is very excited to be a part of the Janome family and looks forward to meeting and working with some amazing people. Anne-Margaret (like many of us) has a collection of machines – many of which are Janome’s. And she has just added the Janome MC15000 Quilt Maker  to her line up of sewing tools at home. She is pretty excited about that!

Another one of the many quilts Anne-Margaret has made

And another…. don’t you love the way Rail fences are always successful? 

Anne-Margaret will be accompanying me to events at some BC Dealer stores this Fall…….hopefully you will come out to your Dealer’s store to meet her and find out what we have to show you and teach you this Fall.  Trust me that we have some great things planned to share with you!

And watch this spot for future blog posts from Anne-Margaret………….

    I love the story, and Anne-Margaret sounds just lovely! I too have a recently upgraded 15000 (and she’ll be very cross if I don’t introduce her properly!) called Queen 👑 Fifi, and we live in Australia. We wish we could be part of more Janome events like this, but we’re not aware of them. Hmmm. Note to self: must ask our lovely dealer to find out if there are any…😉

    How do we get the pattern for that adorable puppy applique quilt? I love that and I have fabrics that will work already in my arsenal. Any way to get the pattern or a kit for this?

      Hi Bonnie,

      Sorry, cant help you with the pattern or the kit. But I can tell you it is the Lunch Box Quilts pattern and design CD called Mixed Mutts See this link: Try Langley vacuum and Sewing, Langely, BC. They may have some CD’s still for sale. Or try other dealers on our Dealer locator. Possibly best to ask your local Jnaome Dealer if they can order it for you?

    Hi Liz.  I know I asked you this before but I can’t find your e-mail in my notes.   I have a Quilters Helper 4900.  I know I can you the ruler foots on this machine.   Just don’t know which attachments I need to get? Also which attachments do I need for my 12000? My 4900 goes to classes and I have a ruler class in September. Thanks again.   Linda

      Hi Linda,

      Yes, you have a low shank machine so you need the Convertible Free Motion foot set for LOW shank and then Part #767434005 to add to that – the ruler foot part.
