My great-nephew recently celebrated his third birthday and DesignWorks came to the rescue to help create a car mat community for his special day. The PaintWork Tool and DesignWorks Softwware made it so easy to create special signs and symbols. I even created a little BERNINA store for his community!
I made this “Flip Flop” quilt a number of years ago. My son Matthew’s friend Alexis came over to help me make the quilt. We painted her feet and it did take a couple of tries but we were able to put them on the material without too many imperfections.
Hi there! I am Michelle Jensen of Mixi Heart (www.MixiHeart.com). I am a pattern designer and long-arm quilter. Though I was exposed to very little sewing when younger, I have a passion today as if I have been in the sewing world all along. I love to quilt!!!
For all of you who followed us on Facebook the last four days, I hope you enjoyed the inspirational breeze from Ventura, California, where the second DIY conference Craftcation was held. As the photos speak for themselves, you can tell it was a blast!
Karen Betts writes: I just finished sewing the coolest project! I saw the pattern, “Classmate” by Atkinson Designs, at my local BERNINA store, Nancy’s Calico Patch in Newport News, VA. This was the first time I’d sewn with clear vinyl – and it was amazingly fun and easy!!
