JULY  AUGUST  SEPTEMBER 2016 Ten years ago I joined the Janome family with the purchase of my MC6600. Every moment of sewing on that machine has been a pleasure and if you own one, you know what I’m talking about. Although many great machines have been launched since then, I have never once been tempted to trade-up…until now. The HMC9400 is my new love for sewing and quilting! Check out all the reasons why in the article below.

We are getting more and more excited about our upcoming Sew4Home Sewing Escape event in August. Our sample kits arrived last week and I can’t wait to get started on the three fun projects! The weekend starts casually on Friday evening with Mix, Make, and Mingle. Enjoy refreshments while getting to know the crew and your fellow sewing enthusiasts, pickup your swag bag, claim your machine and make your nametag. Saturday is a full

day of learning and fun. Start the morning with Project #1: Patchwork & Pom Pillow. After a catered lunch, you will start Project #2: the Teardrop Tote. Sunday morning there will be a little time for shopping and finishing up your first projects. The final Project #3: a Monogrammed Sew4Home Sewing Escape Zippered pouch should be Hosted by finished around noon.
