Kind Words: Rita W (155)

Rita W won the prize for month 6 Journey of a Quilter club and she won these wonderful scissors but it was her hubby's comment that made me smile...

Hi Val,Thank you for the Embroidery Scissors. I really enjoy hand embroidery, so I know they will be very useful. When my husband saw the package with the scissors, he asked me if he could have them because he wanted them for trimming his mustache, I said sorry they are for my handwork. Anyway thanks again, Rita

Isn't that cute? Thanks Rita for sharing this

Janome Update & Draw Closing (147)

As many of you now about my sorted experience with Janome. This post however to to update you and give a HUGE thanks to Jim Findlay of Linda's Quilt Shoppe in Kelowna, BC for stepping in and making things happen. I haven't heard back from Janome on any of my email or phone called but Jim has contact and replied back to every single contact point I've made, thanks so much Jim. Here's my 1st Janome going back to Kelowna to be swapped out for this brand new machine that arrived on Monday...I was without a machine for 1 whole week, YIKES that was rough I must say. I had a chance to setup the machine on Monday night and sewed with it on both Monday and Tuesday night and boy everything about it is working good, the threader works (1st one didn't) the needle came nice and straight (1st one was bent) and so far so good. I hope this machine proves to be better then the last as my experience with Jim is awesome unlike Janome Corporate and their CEO David Manierka who hasn't responded to my last two email and wanted to pass me onto someone else...I digress...

Onto brighter and better things. I will still continue to update you on my machine, what I like and dislike about it as I use it more and more. Any feedback you can give or any questions or comments I would love to hear them :) Thanks again for all of the support.

Also don't forget to vote on Heather's Giveaway draw will close today!!

Until next week, have a wonderful long weekend full of creativity :)
