We are very excited to unveil an exclusive new Club that kicks off this month at participating Janome Dealers across the US. From bags to baskets to linens and more, Sew4Home Maker’s Club members will create clever projects and learn pro techniques. Our debut project is a set of embroidered zipper pouches with tassel accents. These projects are exclusive to Janome dealers, but we’ll introduce each one right here on the website to keep you up-to-date on all the inspiration. Reach out to your local Janome dealer for more information on how you can sign up.
We can already hear the clickity-clack of your keyboards as you draft a comment to us about not being able to get the projects right here. If you’re a regular Sew4Home visitor, you know virtually all of our content is free to you as the end user. But that doesn’t mean it’s free to produce. In fact, the costs surrounding the creation of high quality, on-trend project tutorials, patterns, samples, photography, and instructions go up and up and up. Our wonderful sponsors help off-set that, but we’re excited to be able to investigate other opportunities as well. It’s all about being able to continue to bring you what you love.
The Sew4Home Maker’s Club is our first foray into the world of customized projects since last year’s Sewing Escapes road shows. There will be seven Club projects in this first season, many of which, like these gorgeous pouches, include unique embroidery designs. All of them feature our famously trendy yet easy-to-sew patterns and instructions.
Our zipper pouches are especially sweet as a set or pick your favorite and make just one. There’s a Large Folio at 12” x 9”, a Medium Pencil Case at 10” x 5”, and the Small Classic Pouch at 8” x 5”. We used bright, solid colors of Essex Linen/Cotton Blend from Robert Kaufman Fabrics to set off the vibrant embroidery.
Each zipper pull features a chubby floss tassel as a bit of extra embellishment.
The Club kits include three custom embroidery designs formatted to fit each pouch size. With brilliant colors and detailed embroidery, our Nordic style motifs work wonderfully well for the holidays but aren’t so seasonal that they wouldn’t continue to be perfect throughout the year.
One or more of these beauties would make a lovely gift. Or – here’s a fabulous idea: make something for yourself!
We hope you’ll contact your Janome dealer to become a S4H Maker’s Club member. If your local dealer isn’t on board yet, let him/her know you are interested. Most dealers are starting their Clubs this month and next and continuing into 2018 with an approximate every-other-month schedule.
