Our friends from Sew4Home.Com have done it again! In order to help you get the most from your Janome embroidery machines, the Sew4Home team has created a super fun collection of lifestyle patches for you to create and use however you wish! Embellish a tote bag you take to the beach or when camping; use to repair a ripped old jean jacket or the knee of your kid’s jeans, there’s sew many creative possibilites!
So long as your machine has a 5″x 5″ hoop and a USB port, which every current model of Janome embroidery or embroidery combo machine has, you’re good to go! If your machine does not have a big enough embroidery hoop, perhaps it’s time to consider upgrading. Contact one of our Janome Canada dealers for details!
In August we debuted the Hobby Patch Monthly Embroidery Series which will feature a fun new embroidery design for a total of 7 months, courtesy of our friends at Sew4Home. Each month a new JEF embroidery file will be uploaded to the INSPIRE tab/ Sew4Home tab on our Janome.CA website. Hobby Patch #1 is Adventure.
If you miss a month, not to worry. Check back to Janome.CA each month to collect all 7 patches. Each month will be a different theme, so there’s something for everyone.
With September being National Sewing month, it’s totally fitting we have a Sewing Machine patch, “Eat. Sew. Sleep” which is Hobby Patch #2!
I’m sure we all wish we had more time to sew and could live this mantra everyday! lol! With nights drawing in a little earlier, kids back in school, many of us use this opportunity to get caught up on some sewing projects, or of course, start new ones. The Holidays are just around the corner! lol!
Join me, Michael Smith, National Education Manager of Janome Canada, and Liz Johnson, Senior Editor of Sew4Home.Com LIVE the THIRD Thursday of every month at 3pm Eastern on the Janome Canada Facebook page as we reveal each month’s Hobby Patch, as well as share special sneak peeks and tips and tricks on all things sewing.
If you can’t make the LIVE presentation, not to worry. The LIVES are stored in the Media/Videos tab on the Janome Canada Facebook page, and will be uploaded to the Janome HQ You Tube channel under the Sew4Home Playlist, so you may view whenever convenient for you.
Not only can you share the Janome love by tagging us on social media #sharethejanomelove, #janomecanada, #janomehq, to show us how YOU have used your patches, you can also use these patches to wear your Janome love!
Full instructions are provided in the links on Janome.CA, but of course you’ll need a rainbow of colours of luscious embroidery thread, stabilizer, needles, bobbin thread, etc. to stitch out your patches, so be sure to contact your Janome dealer with your supply list!
