Ardyth's Sew n Vac Shoppe joyfully welcomed from Japan Yutaka Koyama, Product Development Supervisor of Janome Sewing Machine Company. The mission of Janome is to produce machines which inspire creativity and innovation, yet are simple to use. They know the most important thing about their products is not the machines themselves, but what you can create with them. The better the tools, the more inventive, artistic and pleasurable the sewing experience will be. That’s why they design their machines for performance, but also for comfort, quality, and intuitive ease of operation.

As a leader in the sewing industry, they keep striving to provide best-in-class products and services which enable sewists' creativity and innvovation. The President of Janome, Toshi Takayasu requested Yutaka to tour Janome dealers with Al Enderson, Janome Representative; they discussed ideas for products like the Horizon Memory Craft 15000, a revolutionary, first-ever wireless-enabled sewing machine. Maday Lange, Dan Hungerford, and Michele Miller presented Yutaka with a gift of cheese curds, milk, and honey to remember visiting Baraboo, Wisconsin.
