Janome provides great project support on their website – with design ideas as well as free templates for their various embroidery machines. In a quick perusal of their site’s free templates, I found designs for specific holidays, seasonal designs, as well as just some cute and fun things (I have to admit, the ‘Stick Family’ was a bit of a surprise). Just go to their project center link, and click on Embroidery for the templates (you’ll have to select the machine you are working with, as not all machines can handle the same designs).

See what fun we had working with the new Janome? (I’m not in the picture – because I’m behind the camera!)Janome Fun
Here are a couple of the embroidery designs we tried out.

If you are thinking about starting to do machine embroidery, beware! I know it’s a popular trend right now, and it’s lots of fun to do (and allows for some real creativity in your creations); but it is very addictive. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! Wink
