Big Announcement #1: Janome Partnership!

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know BOTH of my big secrets announcements – but if not (why not?! you should!), I’m here to share with you the first one today.

Memory Craft 8900 QCP

I have to admit that I’m pinching myself a little bit over this one. If you told me last year at Sewing Summit during the session on working with brands that *I* would be working with Janome less than a year later, I would have laughed at you. And possibly spit my drink, too. But here I am…WORKING WITH JANOME!

As part of our partnership, I get to demo this fabulous machine for the next year. It’s a Horizon Memory Craft 8900 QCP, and you can read more about it here on their website. But don’t worry; I’ll be telling you all about my experience with it in the coming months. Better yet, I’ll be demonstrating all its amazing features with several free patterns/tutorials I’ll be creating for the Janome Project Center. *QUEUE JAZZ HANDS*

First impression? BLOWN. AWAY. You know, I’ve been a Janome girl for a little while now… I LURVE my CoverPro 1000 CPX (coverstitch machine) (like, love it love it…wanna marry it love it), and I bought my MC6500 used a couple years ago. It’s been a workhorse, but this new machine just really takes it up a notch. Can we talk for a minute about how happy I am to have a free arm again?! I had workarounds for small circumference sewing, but girls…(and one guy – thanks, reader survey!), I am so happy to not have to use those anymore. It’s the little things, right?

I know, I know…the free arm is such a minor feature on such an awesome machine. I can’t even begin to tell you about it all. But stay tuned. I will. (I need to learn it all, first!)

Ahhhh…such a pretty girl. I just love her. 

My first free pattern as part of this partnership will debut next month (with some others planned in the meantime, too!), so if you aren’t already a subscriber, head to Bloglovin’ and take care of that real quick like. I wouldn’t want you to miss anything!

    Congratulations! I’m a huge fan of Janome machines (I have 3!) and am contemplating upgrading my sewing machine over the next year. This is one I’ve been eyeing up so will be watching keenly to see what you think of it!

    So glad I’m a bloglovin follower, can’t wait to see how this turns out for you! I’m a total Janome girl, after getting my janome 4000 for Christmas (my one true love as it’s also known!) and I’ve got a super old Janome overlocker :-D I love them both!

    • Lauren Dahl

      They are great machines! I am so excited about this! :)

  • Juliette Bonnin Lanvers

    Pretty pretty!

    • Lauren Dahl

      Yes, she is pretty…and she sews great, too. :)

    That is exciting and totally awesome! I’ve never sewn on a Janome, but I know several people who love theirs. Congratulations! =)

    • Lauren Dahl

      It is absolutely amazing. I LOVE IT so much!

    • Lauren Dahl

      I know, I feel so lucky and grateful. Thank you so much. :)

  • Sophie-Lee

    I briefly flirted with the Brother Cover Stitch and that bloody machine has no free arm! I actually sold it on soon after purchasing it.. I guess I’m a Janome girl at heart!
