While working in the Janome booth at the larger quilt and sewing shows like the Creativ Festival and Quilt Canada, I’m often asked by attendees about our Janome Education Events, which we offer at the Janome dealerships across the country.
Usually our educators and Janome dealers set these events up then advertise them to you, our Janome customers. But YOU can help us out by requesting events/ topics as well. Contact your local Janome dealer to let them know what YOU would like to learn and hear more about.
For example, one of the current events we’re offering is in response to consumer feedback for more education with our iPad apps for our Wifi-Certified machines, the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000 Quiltmaker and the Janome Skyline 9.
Each of these machine stitches beautiful embroidery so we’ve designed a hands-on event appropriately named “Sew hAPPy” (the “h” is silent, lol!) where we use the amazing Janome Acusetter App for perfect embroidery placement to stitch out this adorable porcupine applique and bonus pin cushion. How cute is that?! We’ve been calling him Porky.
You’ll use many features of the machines, like the Janome Cloth Guide, to sew the basket which has pockets all around the outside. Who doesn’t need more storage and organization?!
I made my sample above to coordinate with our black and white themed booth at this Fall’s Creativ Festival, but the fabric we have prepared for the “Sew hAPPy” kits features the bright and beautiful fabric by our Janome Artisan Tamara Kate and white trim for the handles. The pink felt is to embroider Porky.
Contact your local Janome dealer to ask if they have scheduled the “Sew hAPPy” event , or any of our other Janome Education Events. There’s lots to learn and they’re lots of FUN!
Janome is GREAT at combining both!
Sew hAPPy is exactly what I need. I need help on Apps as I only use Accuedit and Accumonitor. I don’t know how to use the rest. Will Sewing World South in Calgary be offering this seminar?
We would be more than happy to do a Sew hAPPy event in Calgary. Perhaps you would like to ask Steven to schedule something with me? We tried to set up something for this Fall but it unfortunately did not work out. Perhaps Spring 2019?
LOVE the Porky stitch-out! And need to find where I can order Tamara Kate’s newest fabric lines here in the US! I really enjoy getting these blogposts even if I’m not in Canada–Janome lovers of the world unite!
