Great job with this tutorial..
I'm working today, but plan on watching part 2 when I get home.
You're instructions are clear and through. Thanks for posting this. I've never made a pillow with my compu-lock but will definitely try this. Suzi

Hi Suzi,

Glad to hear you are going to try making the pillow. It goes together very fast. Send me a picture when you are finished and I will post it here on the blog! Can't wait to see it. If you need any help, just let me know! Cynthia

I left a message under the video, but again...thank you for these videos. Like you, I am a Janome girl. I bought my 9000 for the same reason you did and upgraded to the 11000 because it was just the best on the market. I started with a MyLock 634 which worked great and then upgraded to the Compulock when it came along. I have not done a lot of things with it other than straight serging. I will do the pillow. I know the cover stitch for t-shirts is easy, but will you do a video on it and also do some napkins/dishtowels? I'm glad I found you. Thanks again.

Yvette, Thank you for the nice comments! Love having you as a subscriber!!

mikenoma, so glad to hear about another Janome girl!! I actually don't use the compulock much for the coverstitch. I have a separate coverstitch machine. Maybe I could give a video on that! You would learn the basics. Do you know how to switch the compulock to the coverstitch?

Loved your video. Learned so much. I have a Pfaff 4852, but your techniques apply. I couldn't quite see how the piping went together at the end closure. Maybe, it is too bold to ask for a demo of that with the camera looking toward you so we could see how your magic hands do the work. Thank you, Thank you
