Embroidered Greeting Card On My Janome 8000


Back in August I finally acquired a Janome 8000 embroidery machine – from an estate sale of dear family that I knew. The couple passed away within months of one another. They were so sweet and into embroidery and quilting. I had admired their machines and crafts on numerous occasions when I was at their house. Never did I dream one of their embroidery machines would be mine one day.


The first item I made was an embroidered card for Jerry while he was in the hospital. It didn’t turn out perfect, but it was pretty and he liked it. I still have that card somewhere here in the hospital bag I brought home when he passed away.

The machine sat for a few months after that. It is an older machine from the 1990’s and one of the first home embroidery machines made, so it does not hook up to a computer. I did get a Scan ‘N Sew and am working on getting a card reader so I can download my designs onto a blank card that will go into the machine. This will allow me a lot more creativity. Right now I have two cartridges and a few cards I can scan. That is another reason why I have done so very little.


So the other night the embroidery bug bit me. I decided it was time to try again to create something using my new machine. I made another greeting card. The designs the machine embroideries are small and they seem quite suited to cards. I thought about making earrings but the designs I have are all too large. Possibly I could shrink them but that is another learning curve for me.

I’d love to hear what you think of my new cards – and if you have a Janome 8000 embroidery machine I’d love to chat the machine.
