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!!!
Melanie McFarland’s niece, Kinsley, used her aunt’s BERNINA 830 sewing machine and 2500DCET serger to make pajama pants and pillowcases. She did a super job – they’re adorable. Way to go, Kinsley!
Ginger Pahos sent me photos of some gorgeous – and super cute! – children’s clothes she made. Don’t you wish you were 4-years old again with a closet full of dresses, jackets, and pants like these? What fun!
My daughter’s wedding is fast approaching (Saturday!) and I will send pictures of the finished dress after the wedding. I couldn’t have made it through this wedding without my BERNINA machines!
The day arrived for the first fitting of the wedding dress. Of course I had to make the test dress pink, since her very first wedding dress was a pink satin that I made when she was five years old. Since Jessica didn’t want embroidery on her wedding dress, I decided to place some on the test dress.
One of WeAllSew’s newest blog experts, Mimi Goodwin of Mimi G Style shows us that pushing your limits and venturing out of your comfort zone can be a beautiful thing! Some leather, pretty prints, a chevron zigzag quilt tutorial and an old Butterick pattern were used to create this stylish update to the quilted jacket.
This is not the first wedding dress I’ve made for Jessica. I ran across a picture of the first one—she was 4 or 5 years old and I’m trying to think of a way to incorporate this picture into the wedding. Any ideas will be appreciated!
We’d like to share a behind-the-scenes story with you from our BERNINA International team. Read all about the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Days in Zurich, Switzerland, that took place from November 7-10 this year with various fashion highlights.
This week and the following we are visiting with our next BERNINA Sewing Celebrity, Mimi Goodwin, of Los Angeles, CA. This WAS sewing expert and founder of popular blog Mimi G. Style, learned how to sew at the age of 12. Like many of us, she began her career as a young Barbie doll clothes designer using her aunt’s scraps. Seeing her excitement, her dad bought her a sewing machine, her first, and she has been hooked ever since.
