Today we are coming home from San Antonio after a wonderful week at Janome Institute - where the whole week is focused on everything Janome! We have learned so much this week, we don't even know where to start! And we have so many great new ideas to bring back to the shop! New machines, software, and accessory items will be arriving at the shop very soon.
Yesterday we spent most of the time working on the top of the line machine, the Janome 15000. It is truly an amazing machine and will do just about everything, and then some! Our class project was a tote bag that we can use to carry the machine embroidery hoops and we actually finished our projects in class! Of course the point is to learn about the machine, so we used about five different feet, the cloth setter guide, and a variety of features in both sewing and embroidery mode - switching between the two multiple times during the project. We were very impressed that we were able to complete our project, especially in such short time. We will send pictures soon!
Last night was the closing ceremony and party, with a great meal, a fabulous Texas style country band, more time for networking, and a chance to recognize and thank the Janome staff for all they do to support us and you, our customers.
We expect new products to be coming to the shop soon, and we'll let you know when they are here so you can be the first to come see them!
