Janome America to introduce TB12 & TB30 at ThreadBanger
Aug '08
Janome America Inc, a leading manufacturer of home sewing machines, is set to introduce two new innovative machines on Thread Heads, the first show to debut on ThreadBanger.com, the groundbreaking online network for people who create their own fashion. The TB12 and TB30 are the first ThreadBanger branded sewing machines to hit the market and offer user-friendly features that are the perfect creative tools for the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) enthusiast.

“There is no denying that the DIY trend is sweeping the nation,” says Jiro Hagiwara, president and CEO of Janome America Inc. “From how-to videos, forums and blogs, to newsletters and contests, our partnership with ThreadBanger.com has allowed us to further help crafters create and find their own style. It was only natural for us to take the next step in developing ThreadBanger branded machines, making it easier to recycle and recreate old garments into fresh new fashions.”

Bringing the high quality that consumers have to come know and trust from the Janome brand, the TB12 and TB30 incorporate computerized precision and high tech features that enable sewists to create every project with a professional finish. In addition to multiple stitch functions and amazing accessories, these machines also have a portable design that is perfect for on-the-go DIY projects.

With each American disposing of approximately 35 pounds of old clothing and textiles annually, Janome and ThreadBanger recognize that do-it-yourself fashion opportunities can be found everywhere. Blending creative inspiration and conservation, the Janome TB12 and TB30 only use 4 watts as opposed to the typical compact fluorescent lights consuming about 5-30 watts.

ThreadBanger is a network for people who love to DIY, recreate, refashion and craft. The network brings together people who can share their ideas, tips and advice with others and help make the world more fashionable – ThreadBanger style! Thread Heads is hosted by Rob Czar and Corinne Leigh, who scour the streets looking for indie designers and crafters who share their passion with the world.
