When: 27 April, 10am start

Have you ever looked at you Janome MC15000, 14000, 12000, 11000, 9900, 9400, Skyline S9 or Skyline S7 and wondered what the button with the picture of a T-Shirt does?

The Sewing Applications Menu

This is the Janome Sewing Applications menu and it is the “hidden” gem that makes sewing on a Janome so much easier than any other machine.

What the Janome sewing applications menu does is it allows you to easily set up your Janome machine for things like Seaming, Zippers, Button Sewing, Patchwork, Applique and Quilting, as long as many others are included within the Sewing Applications menu and they will revolutionise the way that you use your Janome.

During the class you will make a great project that utilises many of the features of the Sewing Applications Menu, to give you a greater understanding of how each of the stitches is designed for optimal stitching and how to navigate around your machine.

This workshop would suit everyone from the novice first time user to the experienced veteran, there is always more to learn about these great Janome’s.

The class is a hands on class and will be offered as both In-Store and OnLine.

Attendees will receive
