A Sneak Peak into Hemming and Mending Like a Pro Class

How often have you heard a fellow sewist say that they won’t hem someone’s pants for them? Let’s not sugar coat it, hemming and mending items are the least fun tasks as a sewist. However, they are a necessity and that is why we think our Hemming and Mending Like a Pro class is so awesome. 

In this 2 hour class we cover many quick and easy techniques that will make the time you spend hemming and mending super productive. We also highlight a bunch of cool accessories for your Janome that make this process even easier! You are sure to leave this class with the know how to tackle any hemming/mending project with ease and a finish that is very professional.

Janome’s Taping Guide Foot

Hands up if you hate ironing. I know you can’t see  me but my hand is way up. I love to iron fabric straight out of the dryer and I love ironing quilt blocks. That’s it. Please don’t ask me to iron anything else. For this reason I love Janome’s Taping Guide Foot. Using this foot and either store bought bias tape or tape binding you make yourself, your raw edge is sealed in one step!

Look at how amazing the stitching is on this! The Tape Guide Foot lines everything up so you get a super polished, professional looking bound edge with no ironing! You can even use decorative stitches!!

Do you know what this foot is?

It is Janome’s Automatic Button Hole Foot. I’m going to bet that if your machine came with one that it sees very little light of day unless you make things with button holes all the time.

Did you know that you can do more with this foot than just make button holes? You sure can!! Combine this with a darning stitch and you can mend holes in your clothing. Pick either a thread to match for your mending to blend in or a contrasting thread for a bold statement!

If you would like to learn more about these techniques and about other ways to make hemming and mending a breeze, check out our class schedule including more details on how to sign up.
