Please come & see me at the show:

  • I am teaching one class on Friday and repeating it on Saturday:  I understand that one of the classes is almost full but I think there may be a few spots left in the other class.  TOPIC:  Exploring the World of Sewing

FRIDAY: 10:30 am to 11:30 am

SATURDAY: 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Are you getting all that you can from your sewing  machine? There’s an ever-expanding world of quilting and sewing to be discovered. Join Liz Thompson of Janome & Elna for a whirlwind tour of techniques that will inspire you to step-up your stitching journey in 2013. Modern to traditional; beginner to experienced; there’s something for everyone in this fast paced overview. Learn how to expand the use of what you have and explore new possibilities with stitch features, feet and accessories. Gain new knowledge and pick up helpful tips for embroidery, garment sewing and quilting. There’s no need to stress over taking it all in as detailed notes and photo opportunities will be available. Come to be inspired and energized with this exciting itinerary.

  • OR come and see me in the SAWYERS SEWING CENTER JANOME & ELNA BOOTH. There is an excellent reason to come see me: we have several new machines to show you – one is BRAND NEW  and will have it’s Canadian debut at the Victoria Sewing Show!!!!     Now, listen up…………..if you come to the booth and allow us to show you one of the exciting NEW machines, we will give you an entry form for our DEMO COMPETITION.  Only those who visit the booth to enjoy a free demo may enter this exclusive competition.  We will draw for the prize at the close of the show on Saturday.  You do not have to be present at that point to win but I’d love  to be able to hand the prize over in person and take pics for this blog. But if you enter and win but have already gone home to sew (?!), we will have Sawyer’s Sewing Center call you to come in to their store after the show to collect your prize.
  • You might also want to pay us a visit in the booth to see the incredible quilts that were entered in the 25th Anniversary Celebration competition at the Creativ Festival in Toronto last year. This will be your one & only chance to see the quilts up close & personal!  Here is another of the stunning entries:
