Isn’t this just lovely? Lorrie attended our Hidden Secrets of the Janome Mc15000 seminar in November and was so thrilled with the skills she learned at this 2 day seminar that she went home and completed this Holiday table runner using the Acufil (ASQ22) hoop to quilt the entire table runner using her Janome MC15000 embroidery machine. Aka quilting-in-the-hoop! She tells me she had already free motion quilted it but she unpicked that all and redid it using her newly learned Acufil quilting/embroidery skills. We are very impressed ……well done Lorrie!!
And we share this so you can appreciate what we were teaching: Janome features that save you time and do a fabulous job in your sewing room.
And just for the record: this Acufil quilting is also available for Janome Mc11000, Mc12000, MC500E and MC550E. It is not exclusively for Janome MC15000 although the Mc15000 does offer a larger Acufil hoop for this unique technique.
Here is a close up where you can see the Acufil stippling that Lorrie used to quilt the runner. Unpicking is such a pain but I think Acufil quilting is SO much neater than free motion unless you have practiced many, many hours and are a Pro at free motion. Don’t you agree? And the multiple hooping to achieve the results you see here is much quicker than you might think as it is a rather clever and efficient process.
Watch this spot in early 2020 as we will be announcing more Janome Canada Consumer seminars. We would love to meet you and be able to teach you similar skills to what Lorrie learned and put to such good use here. Thanks for sharing, Lorrie.
