HAPPY CANADA DAY!!

See our recent Instagram Live and video on Janome Life You Tube with Celine as she showed how to make a flag with a double sided applique

Happy birthday to us here in Canada!! We have had, shall we say, an interesting year so far. Certainly unprecedented, sometimes stressful, sometimes anxious, sometimes quiet and lonely, sometimes fun and creative. We guess the Pandemic has stretched us all in ways we did not know before and made us turn to things that make us happy and carefree. For many of us in the sewing world, this is sewing creativity. We thought it would be good to have a show and tell of past Canadian projects. We hope you enjoy.

the stunning Canada 150 Maple leaf quilt made by Tamara Kate during our big Canada 150 year

This machine was a limited edition (now long since sold out) machine to commemorate Canada’s 150th birthday

And that same year, one of educators at that time (Yvonne) digitized these lovely maple leaf designs which Liz made up into a colourful vertical banner.

Cheryl Arkison has published several books, is a proud Canadian living in Alberta and here is one of her lovely quilts.

What have you been sewing during the Pandemic?

Have you have time to relax and sew?

Or were you one of those who has been working feverishly on the front lines? We THANK all of these people without whom we would have been in a much more difficult place: nurses, doctors and health workers, police, city service workers, courier companies and Canada Post, Grocery store workers and suppliers, government workers and all those I have not specifically listed………..We are deeply grateful for your service.
