Thanks, Janome!

I have a big announcement: I am a Janome Artisan! 

I've very excited to be partnering with Janome in creating projects and sharing information about some of their wonderful products.

I've had my Janome Horizon Memory Craft 8900 QCP (Janome 8900) for about 2 1/2 years now and really enjoy using it for my quilting and stitching. If you haven't had a chance to take a peek at some of the videos with the Janome 8900, they are in their own playlist so you can find them all in one place.

Recently Janome Canada loaned me a Janome Artistic Edge digital cutter as well as a Janome 500E embroidery machine. These machines are both new to me and while I've worked with digital cutters before, I've never even looked at an embroidery machine! Lots of learning, but I'm very impressed with the capabilities of both these machines.

You can expect to see blogposts and videos about the Janome Artistic Edge. I'll be using it to cut some of the appliqué shapes in the One World Quilt Along since it does such an amazing job on intricate designs. If you haven't already joined us in this online quilt along, I hope you'll do so as we're having lots of fun creating this cute quilt.

I always thought that machine embroidery machines did just that - only machine embroidery. I'm finding out that they can do a lot more! I'll really looking forward to combining appliqué with machine embroidery on the Janome 500E. You can look forward to following me on my learning and creating journey with this machine.

I'll be posting projects and tips in future blogposts and videos, so stay tuned for these.

If you have anything that you'd like to know about either the Janome Artistic Edge or Janome 500E, leave me a comment below and I'll do my best to help you out.

Off to do some creating!
