During 2017, the Janome Club programs will be designed to learn more about your Janome sewing machines in many areas.... a better understanding of the use of your presser feet
that come with your machine as well as the additional feet and accessories. In the world of sewing and machine embroidery new tools and

Edge to Edge Quilt

Love quilting?  If you do, I am sure you may have difficulty free motion quilting the 3 layers after you have finished your piecing.  Why pay someone else to do the quilting for you?  We are going to learn to use a technique called Edge to Edge Quilting.  It requires purchase of a book that you can order from Norwalk Vac and Sewing when you sign up for class.

VIKING/PFAFF SOFTWARE WORKSHOP
Wednesday 13th 
10am-12pm

 

Software workshop is becoming popular. Where else can you find a small group where you can get answers to questions you have about your software? While many of the lessons are helpful, it is sometimes hard to remember how to perform simple tasks and we may need a little individual help. Most stores only teach the most current software version. We would like to help those with 5D, 6D or Premiere Husqvarna/Viking or Pfaff software. Of course, your computer must be up-to-date. The workshop will run 2 hours and the cost will be $15.00.  You will not be the only person in the class, so please bring your list of questions, and call the store to reserve your space. Class meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, from 10am to 12pm.
