#IDidntLikeToAsk Video Series - Part 2!

After the success of the original #IDidntLikeToAsk Just Hands on TV have teamed up with Janome to create Part 2!

Janome and are celebrating Janome’s 100 year anniversary with the #IDidntLikeToAsk video series. Did you know that most modern sewing machines have over 300 stitches?  Most of us use 3 to 4 stitches on our machines.  We stick with what we know.  And we “didn’t like to ask” because learning a new stitch can seem like hard work. Learning one more stitch can unlock a whole new world of creativity.

In the #IDidntLikeToAsk video series, you’ll learn how to use different elements of your sewing machine in a way that will inspire you to try new things, from Automatic Buttonholes to Decorative Satin Stitches.


Valerie and Jayne will be your hosts.  Jayne Brogan (Janome technical expert and Regional Manager) is brilliant at helping us learn how to get the most from our Janome Machine. Valerie Nesbitt (Quilting expert and Founder of will ask the questions that we “didn’t like to ask.”

The original videos are below the Part 2 videos.

The Janome MC9450 QCP is the perfect machine for the techniques featured in the part 2 videos,  CLICK HERE to find out more!
