AmyQuilts Embroidery Clubhouse

Virtual New Owner Lessons and Support for Janome Embroidery Machines

Join the AmyQuilts Embroidery Clubhouse!

Do you struggle with your fabulous Janome embroidery machine? You know it should do X, Y, and Z but you're not entirely sure how? Maybe you don't have a helpful dealer close enough for convenient classes to master your new machine?

Maybe you're staying at home due to Covid? You are ready to really stitch up a storm and learn about your machine and machine techniques at home, but you could use some help.

Been told it's "operator error"? You're trying to do it right but you've been left figuring it out on your own. That is super frustrating!

You are not alone! I've heard pleas for help from machine owners just like you over the years and this is my ongoing Janome specific online club just for folks like you!

The AmyQuilts Embroidery Clubhouse is designed to shorten the learning curve of your Janome embroidery machine and to allow members to get the most out of their embroidering experience. Whether a beginner with embroidery or an experienced machine embroiderer, you will build your knowledge of your machine and creative embroidery techniques.

This clubhouse is for the following machines: The Janome 15000, 14000, 12000, Skyline S9 as well as the 500 and 550e embroidery only machines. It is recommended that you also join the AmyQuilts Sewing Clubhouse if you have one of the combination machines (15000, 14000, 12000, and Skyline S9).


Carole says:

"You have taught me so much. I never learned how to operate my Janome 10000. I love using my 14000 more than ever since your training in Clubhouse! Thank you so much!"


Start with the basic operation and threading of the embroidery machine, including the proper set up of the machine from sewing to embroidery with the combination machines. Then how to navigate through the menus and settings and stitch out designs that came with your machine, including stabilizer and thread selection.


Joann Brothers says,

"The club houses are fabulous well worth the money!"


Then delve into using the machine software, moving designs, editing and combining them, and getting them onto your machine, ready to stitch. Then there are the Janome embroidery apps! I'll show you why they are so amazing, why you should use them and how.

Each month there's something new to discover, often including a new design to stitch out that builds on what we have learned. These designs are exclusive to the Clubhouse and yours to keep.

Monthly Q & A Your membership includes an invitation into our members-only Facebook group where members can share projects and get to know one another. This is the same group the AmyQuilts Sewing Clubhouse uses. There is a monthly Q & A session in the group.

If you want to learn how to get the most out of your Janome embroidery machine, this is how!
