BIG Announcement

I’m thrilled to announce I’ve teamed up with Janome-America, Inc. as their new, National Spokesperson! This is such an incredible honor and I’m excited to embark on this journey to share my love and passion for sewing, quilting and all things Janome with everyone! 

I’ve loved sewing on Janome sewing machines for many years and I can’t wait to team up with the fabulous Janome educators and dealers to share brand new projects, tips, tricks and hundreds of ideas with YOU for getting the most enjoyment from using Janome machines and products! For me it’s all about helping quilters, crafters, home-dec enthusiasts, heirloom and garment makers, and sewists of all skill levels and ages get the most fun from the time they spend at their machines, whether sewing for pleasure, charity, or for their business.

Simply put, it’s about spreading joy and happiness through sewing! 

I’ll be posting regularly here on my blog and other blogs such as the Janome and CRAFTSY , plus other social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. So be sure to check back often.

And I’ll be teaching at venues throughout the year around the country in Janome sponsored classrooms — equipped with the finest sewing machines on the planet! So stay tuned, this is the beginning of something really BIG!

  1. Congratulations! That’s awesome and I’m looking very forward to working on new projects with you!

  2. Fantastic news well done

  3. That is terrific news. Janome is a terrific product as I have two in my sewing room and love them both.

  4. That just made me smile real big!

  5. I am so happy for you. They are a great company. I have 2 of there machines and love them both. I had a 3rd one for many years before I had the other 2. It broke my heart when finally I could not get it fixed any more. I guess I finally wore it out. It was a wonderful machine. I still miss it. But I do love my 2 newer machines. I can do everything with them. They are so much fun to use when sewing quilts or crafts. I think Janome sewing machines are the best. So glad you are there National Spokesperson. You 2 will make a great team.

  6. You never fail to amaze me. Congratulations!

  7. congradulations on your new journey with Janome
    I of course love Janome machines
    I have had the Janome 10000,,then Janome 11000 and now the Janome 12000

  8. Congratulations!! You’ll be great in this job. You have such a positive and enthusiastic personality, and you are a very good writer. I love reading your blog. Best wishes from Dianne B. in England x

  9. Congratulations Kimberley.

    I can’t think of anyone who would make a better spokesperson for Janome. Your love of sewing and your enjoyment of Janome sewing machines will be fantastic for not only Janome but for all those who love sewing-and naturally enjoy having a great sewing machine.

  10. Congratulations! This is very exciting. I’ve been sewing for just over four years and I just unwrapped and started using my Memory Craft Quilt Maker 15000 last week. I also have an S7. Prior to that I had a beginning machine and a 500e. I’m a Janome enthusiast! So to hear that one of my favorite Craftsy teachers and Janome are teaming up is a dream come true. Can’t wait to follow you on your newest adventures.

  11. Congratulations! You will be awesome at this!!
    Will you be in Northern VA teaching? I would love to go. I bought a Janome a few years ago and I don’t use hardly any of it’s capabilities. I only use it for sewing my quilts, and a little free motion quilting. I have a really nice big one, the 8900 memory craft.

  12. Congratulations to you and to Janome! They will have a wonderful ambassador in you Kimberly. Well done indeed. Have a great time spreading the news. I love both of the Janome machines I own. I’ll be passing one of them down to my daughter for her and my granddaughter to use. Love love love my Janome machines!

  13. I am enjoying one of your classes on Craftsy. I have already purchased your 2 EZ quilting rulers…and now to hear you are with Janome is fantastic. Janome is my preferred sewing machine brand. I have 5 of them. The 2 that I love the best are (the discontinued) MC3500 and my unbelievable Horizon MCP 9400. Worth every penny.

  14. Kimberly so happy for you and Janome could not of picked better rep! I have totally enjoyed your classes on Craftsy and learned so much from you. I am retired AF and got the quilting bug while stationed near Lakenheath UK, think it was the chill in the air lol. Thanks so much for sharing your talents. I recently moved from GA to WA and the movers never delivered my things, I only had 300cf of belongings (learned to live modestly in military) most of that was my , family photos,service awards and years of accumulation of sewing tools and two machines. I do not know if I will ever get my things. I am saving now to purchase either the 6700P or 9400 in the meantime sewing and even FMQ on a little Brother machine I bought. I have ordered your Flying geese ruler and I am sure anxious to try out a couple of the projects in your Magical Jelly Roll quilt course. Thanks again for great instructions and for being a great representative of our military family also.
