Janome Sewing Machine Giveaway

janome-sewing machine

Make any child happy this Christmas with a Janome sewing machine.  This compact machine includes essential features for tackling many types of sewing projects, from simple tasks and mending to scrapbooking and paper crafting. At just 5 lbs, it is perfectly portable and a great choice for apartment and dorm living, taking to classes or sewing with friends.  You can choose from several colors and they even have a Hello Kitty one.

I actually learned to sew when I was 10 years old and used to make all my clothes in high school.  When I got into college, I started making quilts and was totally hooked.  In fact, I pretty much spent all my free time sewing before I had kids.  When I started homeschooling Kaley, I knew I wanted to pass along that passion to her so I taught a kids homeschool sewing class and it was so much fun watching them learn how much fun sewing can be.  I really believe this is something every child should learn at some point !!!

Here are my 2 favorite quilts that I made:
