Christmas Contest

IMG_2432There is a Janome club meeting 4 times a year where I work.  In September, attendees are able to choose one of 2 fabrics (or both).  They can make whatever they choose and may add whatever fabrics they wish.  When they return in November, they hand in the project they made. These projects are placed up on the walls around the store. Customers are encouraged to vote for the one they like best.  The winner will get a prize from the store.  All participants get to keep their projects.  If you live in the area, pop into Langley Vacuum and Sewing and vote for your favourite one! (The ones without numbers were made by employees of the store.)  I hope you enjoy the small slideshow!  Which one would you vote for?

    • Hi Kate,

      Yes, you have done well this year! Your progress on everything was great. So what if it didn’t make the PHD criteria? You made progress, and that might be more than you would have done if you hadn’t joined the challenge! Besides, if you want, those projects can be on your list for 2019! 🙂

      I agree, its hard to just pick one project from the slide show!

      Happy Quilting! 🙂


    • Hi Tish,
      Yes, it is hard to choose! However, most people that come in the store are able to choose one project. They often tell me why they chose it … as if I need to know their decision making process! Personally, I think each participant deserves a prize!
      The mystery quilt … am still deciding on the 4th colour … thinking grey … but don’t have enough in my stash …
      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  1. Wonderful, wonderful progress – exciting that you have the PHD and only one to go for finishes in 2018! I couldn’t choose any one of those in your store. They are all too wonderful! I know some little girl is going to love that dress, though!

  2. Hi Gail! What fun with your club. I am torn between #5 and #9 but I think the quilting on #9 pushes it over the edge. The participants sure took so many different directions with that fabric. I hope you have a wonderful week. ~smile~ Roseanne
