Christmas Count down…….Stocking stuffer gift suggestions

Only 2 days to go! Have those stockings been stuffed yet? We have just the things your sewing friends and family will LOVE to open on Christmas morning! Indeed, you probably might like to be your own Santa and pop a few of these into your stocking (never done that before? …..we also need to be good to ourselves?!)

Please see our Look Book Volume 3 link in janomelife post on 12 December 2018 for full instructions of how to make this project. Tamara Kate,  our Janome Canada artisan and spokesperson,  made them with her line of Michael Miller fabrics……..fill your boots with this project, pun intended!

Now what things might we fill our lovely Christmas stockings with?

 

Janome Purple Tip Needles

JANOME NEEDLES  –  will always be of use to a sewer especially if we are being nice rather than naughty and are remembering to change our needles approximately every 8 hours?? Choose from our wonderful blue tip, red tip and purple tip needles (pic’s above). For more information check out our “Glad you asked that” post earlier this year. Needles part 1 and needles part  2

BOBBINS. We have a few different options to make your sewing easy and fun: we have clear bobbins, and also pink ones and blue ones. Why different colours? Well to  make your life easy if you categorize your thread winding: pink bobbins for cotton thread? blue for polyester etc ? We also sell them in blister packs (empty of thread); pre-wound with thread in black or white and also in cute boxes of 25 bobbins per box as in the pic of blue bobbins above. Take your pick!

NEW SERGER THREAD  Brand spanking new item…..I only received mine a few days ago.  Now available at your local Janome dealer in North America. Awesome Christmas gift for a garment sewer. Comes with 16 spools of good quality poly serger thread in 4 colours: black, white, cream and grey – 4 spools of each so perfect for your brand new Janome AT 2000D Air thread serger below (or your other serger too!). Maybe Santa will bring you our new Air Thread serger though that won’t fit into a stocking! 

BLUE DOT BOBBIN CASE – aka Quilters bobbin case aka Low tension bobbin case. If you don’t have one of these yet, you definitely need to whisper to Santa that you need one! We explained why you need this bobbin case at our Fall 2018 consumer events at selected Janome Canada dealers. If you were not able to attend one of these events, be sure to ask your local Jnaome dealer if they will be hosting one in Spring 2019…..we are planning to come back! Or go to this link for further information. You absolutely will be thrilled with the results with your Blue dot bobbin case for free motion quilting….hand look quilting by machine and Acufil Quilting using your Janome embroidery machine.

TAPING GUIDE FOOT This is one of our newer feet so you may not have seen it? It is an optional accessory so if you think you may need it and have not yet purchased it, you need to be nice to Santa!  Check out this link for further information to help you make adding tape to finish items so much easier. 

Are those stockings full yet? If not……you sure know where to go now!

Wishing you a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS from all of us here at janomelife: The Janome Canada Education team and our Janome  Canada Artisans.

May you be thrilled with what you find in your stocking and be blessed by the happiness of those who  dug into stockings you stuffed!
