Announcing a NEW monthly Quilt-Along series on Janome Life!

A new year is the perfect time for new beginnings, and a perfect time to announce a NEW monthly series which will debut next month on Janome Life!

Join our Janome Canada Artisan, and quilter-extraordinaire, Melissa Marginet, Thursday, February 10th, 2022 as she kicks off her Janome Quilt-Along series right here on the Janome Life blog! Each month Melissa will share with you instructions and tips for piecing and later for quilting using different techniques such as Ruler Quilting and using an Even Feed or AcuFeed Flex Foot. See the same block quilted 3 different ways, so this is the perfect time to learn a new technique, and to solve that age-ole question, “How should I quilt that?”

Janome Canada Artisan Melissa Marginet

In addition to written instructions, Melissa will post links to videos, so you may watch her demonstrate some techniques and products which help make the process easier, like the Janome Sew Comfortable acrylic rulers.

More details will be shared next month, Thursday, February 10th, 2022, when Melissa will share with you the fabric requirements and the schedule of what steps will be covered each month so you may follow along for a whole year of quilting instruction and FUN!

Be sure to click the FOLLOW button on the right of your screen so you’ll receive an e-mail notification each morning a new post is published. If you miss a month, or need to go back to review, don’t worry, you can use the SEARCH box to easily find all the related posts.

Melissa will be posting her Janome Quilt-Along blogs February 10th, March 10th, April 7th, May 12th, June 9th, July 7th, August 11th, September 8th, October 13th, November 10, and December 8th, so, mark your calendars, clean your sewing room, and we’ll see you here next month to get started!

Happy Sewing !

      HI Katy! Any machine will do! It doesn’t even have to be a Janome, but we certainly hope it is, lol! The machine Melissa demos might have different functions or different presser feet, like the AcuFeed Flex Foot, but those with other machines which don’t have AcuFeed can use the similar Even Feed Foot, for example. You can always adapt techniques with what you have available. Happy Sewing!
