More than 275 Janome dealers participated in Project Linus National Make A Blanket Day. Sewing clubs, quilt guilds, school groups, and community members across the country took part in the event, contributing time, effort, and donations of yarns, fabrics, batting and notions for the fundraiser.
Every person who donated a blanket was entered in a drawing at their participating dealership to win a Janome DC3050 computerized sewing machine, a model ideal for creating any kind of home dÈcor or sewing project. Each Janome dealer gave away at least one machine.
