MAHWAH , N.J. – One of the communities devastated by hurricane Katrina was the Texas town of Sabine Pass (population 600). Many buildings were destroyed, including the town's firehouse and the high school auditorium. When the ABC television program Extreme Makeover: Home Edition went to Sabine Pass to help rebuild the community, Janome had the opportunity to donate a sewing machine and serger.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition rebuilt the town's fire station and completely rennovated the high school auditorium. To help equip future costume makers in the Sabine Pass High School Theater Department, Janome donated a Memory Craft 11000 sewing and embroidery machine and a MyLock 644D serger.

Janome was one of many companies and individuals who donated materials and time to help the families of Sabine Pass recover from the devastating storm. We look forward to seeing many Janome-made costumes in future drama productions.
Now in its third season, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (Sundays 8/7c on ABC) looks for deserving families whose homes need major rennovations. Using an army of volunteers, and the show's team of designers, the program builds them a new house in 7 days.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is the No. 1 show in its Sunday timeslot, appealing to adults, teens, and kids.
