Water Resistant Round Lawn Cushions + Janome SUV1108

As the season for outdoor events approaches, it’s a great time to think about some portable comfort: make your own set of stylin’ seat cushions. These feature water-resistant rip stop nylon on the back and pretty outdoor polyester prints on the front, and come with their own handy drawstring duffle. This is a beginner-friendly project that is great for the affordable Janome SUV1108, an entry level model with Superior Utility Value.

Dial pattern selection and stitch adjustment ensures ease of use. It even includes a Bonus ¼” Seam foot and Even Feed foot.

Featured Accessories: Zipper Foot, Even Feed Foot with Quilting Guide Bar.

Quilted Accordion Pouch + Janome HD5000

Travel plans in your future? This cute quilted pouch is a perfect packing accessory for jewelry and lingerie. Five 7” x 5” pockets open out to fill, then accordion back in and snap closed. The pouch is bound all around for a smooth finish. We recommend a machine like the Janome HD5000 to make quick and easy work of this project – and many more! We love the handy instructional guide right on the face of the machine with at-a-glance info on feet and stitch settings for a variety of tasks. It has a heavy duty aluminum body + 18 stitches, including a one-step buttonhole.

Featured Accessories: Even Feed Foot with Quilting Guide Bar.

The Walkabout Corduroy Backpack + Janome Memory Craft 6700P

Join us for a stroll. This classic backpack has so many great features, from the wraparound zipper to the adjustable shoulder straps, to the six handy pockets. But don’t let any of that scare you away! The signature S4H step-by-step instructions and photos take you through each section in detail. And, with a great machine, like the Janome MC6700P, you can tackle any technique with confidence. The award-winning Janome MC6700P has the speed (up to 1200 SPM),features, and precision critical to advanced sewing. We love the 10″ All-Metal Seamless Flatbed – no more “scrunching” to be able to work with your larger project panels.

Featured Accessories: Zipper Foot, Quarter Inch Seam Foot, Even Feed Foot or engage the AcuFeed™ Flex built-in fabric feeding system.
