As a Janome user, Janome dealer, shop instructor, and sweetheart to my shop's amazing Janome machine service tech, I have a pretty thorough knowledge base to draw from and help folks understand the capabilities of their Janome machines. You can find me helping out in several FB groups on Janome machines and free motion quilting. I just love to help folks!
This course bundle is designed to allow me to make in-depth training videos for multiple machines in the Janome line up. Each month members will find new basic instructions, advanced settings, machine techniques and projects to build upon the machine technique learned that month. From threading, to combining stitches, using specialty feet to setting up for specialty techniques and trouble shooting issues, we will cover a wealth of information.
The goal of the AmyQuilts Clubhouse is to give you confidence to use these machines to the fullest, allowing you to use your creative sewing abilities to bless those around you, your home, and yourselves.
The club is limited to Janome machines of the following models: 15000, 14000, M7, 6700P, 9450, 9400, S9, S7, S6, 8900 and 8200. These machines all have 9mm feet and the Acufeed Flex system, so they have similar features and settings in common with several machines in the group. I have decided to create an embroidery only add-on upgrade for the combination embroidery machines above and allow the Janome 500e and 550e machines to sign up for it. This will keep the main group focused on sewing only, a benefit for the sewing only machines above.
- Stitch selection, adjustment, manipulation, and combining stitches
- Decorative stitch use in combination with specialty threads for stunning art pieces.
- Practically Perfect Piecing
- Free Motion Quilting, with and without rulers
- Creative uses for the Acufeed Flex System.
- Machine techniques for garment sewing. (Note: this will not be a course on making garments)
- For machines with this capability: Creating unique stitches and lettering with Stitch Composer.
- Various forms of machine applique
At the beginning of the clubhouse ( March 2020 session), the content will lean heavily towards the basics to make sure we have them covered. As time goes by and subscribed members have more experience and confidence with their machine(s), we will do more advanced techniques and projects to keep the learning and the fun going strong. New models from Janome that fit in this group of machines will also be added as they are available.
There will be some projects that span both groups, using sewing and embroidery for the project, with non-embroidery options for those who won't be doing embroidery. So you will want to join the AmyQuilts Embroidery Clubhouse if you have a combination machine.
In addition to the content here, there is a members'-only Facebook group where members can share their projects, interact with each other and watch/participate in a scheduled monthly Question & Answer live video with me. Date and time to be determined. This video will be recorded and shared within the Clubhouse content, so you can access it without going through FB.
If you want to learn how to get the most out of your machine, while getting encouragement and inspiration for use of it, sign up now to enroll in the AmyQuilts Clubhouse. You will first be prompted to set up a login for my "school" here on teachable. Then you can enroll in the Clubhouse.
We won't be verifying machine ownership, but the content will only be for these models as anything else just requires too many different feet and settings. Or they came out and were discontinued before I became a dealer.
Which machines will be covered?
There will also be opportunities to give feedback in the form of surveys so that the instructional content can be adjusted to the needs of current members.
