Hi Gina - great videos - couple of questions... What size needle are you using?  Ironically, I used to sew all the time but never on paper.  Would a needle sized for cotton be good, or perhaps one smaller like for more delicate fabrics - I don't want to punch holes too big on the paper?  And then second question - the zig zag width size (I have a Kenmore so the letter sizing on the Jenome is not the same as my Kenmore) would this be about a 1/4" width - or smaller?  Thanks!

Dear Gina,

You are a very good instructor! Thanks for helping take the fear out of beginner sewers!

Aloha, rosy

Hi Gina,

I can't thank you enough for this set of videos! I'm off to buy this machine and start sewing on my cards!

Thanks again,

Thank you so much for this set of videos!  I really like the special touch that sewing gives to a card project, but since I'm not too comfortable with a sewing machine, I figured I'd never be able to do it.  I've tried the non-sewing products, but for me it seems a lot easier to just pull out a sewing machine. And, if you know what you're doing, a sewing machine is also much faster.  The non-sewing method was discouraging 'cause it took so much longer.  I purchased this machine after watching your videos and am so excited!  I also really appreciate your suggestions on thread colors, and information about tension adjustment. 


My 4 year old watches these videos with me as well, and he was just as excited to use the machine as I was!


Thank you for sharing your talents.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

Once again I just finished watching your Janome videos and they are so easy to follow. I bought my Janome a few months ago and have yet to use it. :( I think it's about time I get it out and play with it. I have always been intimidated by sewing machines, but this little machine is so easy to use that I know I will be just fine. It's a matter of practicing and watching your video again. Thank you Gina for all of your wonderful videos and your patience.

Gina, you have done an excellent job with this Janome series. I have never used a sewing machine in my life, but with your help, I was sewing on a card, within an hour of taking the machine out of the box! Thanks for such great tutorials.

Try Hancock Fabrics or Home Depot online. I have seen them in both online stores.
