New Page for Janome Artistic Quilter Information!


Just wanted to create a quick post to let you know about a new page on my website.  Midarm quilting continues to be one of the most popular categories here at the Caffeinated Quilter, so I’ve built a page to corral all the wonderful information about the Janome Artistic Sit Down machine in one easy-to-find place.  Please let me know if I’m missing important information. Y’all have chimed in with lots of great tips and tricks in the comments of blog posts, and I want to make sure those tips are accessible to others as well.

And if you’d like to be part of a new facebook group I’m starting for Janome Artistic SD Quilter owners, e-mail me and I’ll add you to the beta list!  It’s going to be a great place to share ideas, help each other troubleshoot problems, and share quilting pictures.

What do you think of the new page? And the overall website changes lately?

Happy Stitching!

    Am going to Lancaster AQS SHOW, with intent to try an Artistic 18. Have tried long arms but don’t have money or space. Have become pretty good w/ freemotion on domestic. Can you use different colored threads ( top and bobbin thread ) without problems with tension?

      Hi Brenda! As long as you’re using the same type and weight of threads, you should be able to mix colors on the artistic. As you’re balancing tension, sometimes the different colors are actually helpful to make sure you know which side is pulling too hard. I have used different colored Glide threads in top and bottom, and it worked. (Although I’m quickly becoming an Aurifil girl, it almost never gives me breakage or tension issues!) HTH, and please let me know how the test drive goes!!
