Heirloom Sewing made Easy!

With our busy schedules these days, we rely on the time-saving convenience of our Janome machines and accessories to help us complete our sewing quickly and easily, with professional results. But many of us also love to look back and marvel at the beauty of sewing techniques traditionally done by hand. Fagoting; drawn thread work, or a decorative stitch used to join two pieces of fabric, is one such technique used in traditional Heirloom sewing. Webster’s dictionary records the term way back in 1868.

Well, get ready to fast-forward as we can now do the delicate, time-consuming hand-sewing Heirloom technique of Fagoting using our speedy, modern Janome sewing machine! Janome Canada Educator, Celine Ross will be LIVE in the Janome Sewing Machines Facebook Wednesday, August 11th at 3pm Eastern to demonstrate some fun, and fanciful techniques to help you get the most from your Janome machine and add a special flair to any project.

There’s LOTS of fun, inspirational posts of the Heirloom Sewing technique, Fagoting to be found on Pinterest!

Celine will be LIVE at 3pm Eastern in the Janome Sewing Machines Facebook group every Wednesday in August. Wednesday, August 18th, Celine will be back to show you Bobbin Work with your embroidery machine! Add a new dimension to your designs using the colorful array of heavier threads, thin yarns, or floss. Learn how to set up your machine for success!
