We are thrilled to announce that the mother and daughter team of Jeanne and Emilie over at Jalie Patterns in Quebec have joined our team of Janome Canada Artisans. Of course, we have featured Jalie patterns many times previously here on Janome Life as we love and have used their patterns often. Various Janome Canada educators have made a range of garments with Jalie patterns which we have displayed at shows, done show & tell at Dealer store events (especially with our Sewing with Knits classes during the previous 6-12 months) and we have written about Jalie and their patterns here on our blog. Liz has also taught a class called “Jalie Jamboree“ several times at the annual Saskatchewan Stitches Conference – It is a whole lot of fun leading groups of garment sewers through the cutting out and sewing up of various Jalie patterns. So much creative fun and successful garment sewing with Jalie!
One of the things we love about Jalie patterns is that they offer a huge range of styles for kiddies, women and men and each pattern comes in multiple sizes to trace off the one you need. I can use the same pattern for myself as well as my little girls!
Jeanne and Emilie are the mother-daughter company founded by Jeanne (left in the pic above) in 1983 when Émilie (right) was only 3 years old. The two make a fantastic duo who bring practical patterns for the whole family. From pattern design and prototyping to photo shoots and packaging, everything is done in-house. Visit their website pattern shop or blog post to learn more. The Jalie team will be sharing tips and tricks on Janome life to help you make best use of your machine and sewing time.
Please join us in welcoming Jeanne and Emilie to our Janome Canada Artisan team!
We look forward to their blog posts every second month starting tomorrow ……..I have seen their first post and – trust me – you don’t want to miss it!
