Today we welcome the newest members of the Janome Canada line of sewing machines: the Colourful Series: Arctic Crystal, Pink Sorbet and Blue Couture. Come along for the ride as Janome Artisan team members try out this cutie, and read further along for some of the must-know details on this machine that is popping into dealer stores across Canada.
Look Who’s Sewing…
Nicole Nowosad is the crafting genius behind all of the great projects in our Scrapbook and Cards Today advertising. She used her Colourful machine to create a holiday layout, see in this sneak peek image. (More details to come in an upcoming holiday themed release).
Janome Artisan, Sherri Sylvester of Thread Riding Hood has taken a Pink Couture machine for a spin, with her daughter. Pop over to her blog to see what they get up to!
And Tania Denyer of Ginger Quilts welcomed her own Arctic Crystal home, bestowing her with a name and whipping up a great little starter project for all to try. Please visit her blog to learn the back story! We asked Tania if she could create a simple project to help get any beginner or part-time sewist off to a great start. We think you’ll love her Itty Bitty Accessory bag (Download the Instructions here)

The Colourful series has the beginner in mind, offering helpful guidance in anything from video tutorials to handy quick start guides (printed bilingual guides are packed in the box.) You’ll even find a printed bobbin threading guide right on the machine!
Making the Most of Your Experience
The standard accessory feet will cover most of your early sewing needs, but there’s also a collection of 4 BONUS feet included for your further adventures! These include the 3-Way Cording foot, Gathering foot, Overedge foot and Rolled Hem foot.
We hope that you will visit your JANOME dealer to learn more about this cutie and start creating your own colourful projects.
Why does Janome’s site list a number of feet that work with the artic crystal, but list only 2 that work with the Blue Couture? I thought the only difference is the colour. I bought the blue one. Very happy with the quality of stitches; just wondering about which feet I can buy.
They are the same – except for the colour of the machine. There are seven standard feet and four bonus feet with all 3 of the Colourful series models. Not sure what website you are referring to but I just checked http://www.janome.ca and this is all listed :
3-way Cording Foot Blind Hem Foot Buttonhole Foot Gathering Foot Overedge Foot Rolled Hem Foot Zig-Zag Foot
+ BONUS Includes four additional feet:
3-Way Cording Guide
Rolled Hem Foot
Our website shows a blue machine. But feet and accessories apply to all 3 colours.
Optional accessories are available from any authorized Jnaome dealer : please tell them the machine you have and you would need to purchase 5mm wide feet. Not 7mm or 9mm feet as these will not fit your model.
Hope that helps and reassures you.
OMG – these are GORGEOUS!!! I want one in each colour!
