Doesn’t this look like a fun class? It’s a hands-on event they held at The Sewing Room in Tucson, AZ, for their new B 750 sewing machine owners. They had lots of fun sewing Erika’s Geometric Quilt Block Pillow. Thanks, Mary, for sharing this photo!
Get your guest room ready for special visitors using your sewing machine, a little fabric, and a lot of ingenuity. Beginner-friendly projects include simple-to-make pillows, a thoughtful bedside basket, and a felted mug rug.
Grab one of these and you can make any place your tea corner. The “sweetener” is how quick they are to make. Next time you’re invited for tea (or coffee) bring a stack of these as a gift ‒ and look for the smile you’ll get in return.
The wreath and garland are sewn from gorgeous Danish linen from Stof. They will give your Christmas décor a hint of the great north and an authentic Scandinavian look. The wreath is wrapped in a long strip of bias tape—at the end of the season you can to recycle it for another project.
We just moved into a new home and I found that my bedroom drapes were a few inches too short. What to do? Lengthen them by adding tabs to the top! So off to the fabric store I went.
I love working with silks! The inspiration for this project—a beautiful spiral pillow from Linda Wenturine’s Pillow Panache Trio—is on the BERNINA of America website (www.berninausa.com). I made two small changes to the spirals to completely change the look of the finished project.
I cut 3 1/2 inch strips for my ruffles that I sewed, turned, pressed and ruffled for the pillow. The gathering foot would have had a tough time working its magic with the seam allowance down the center of the fabric strip. The ruffler plowed through perfectly.
Birds of a feather flock together! If you haven’t seen the new BERNINA Exclusive Design Collection” Retro Birds,” #21001, be sure to check it out. To see how these clever little pillows were designed, sign up to for our BERNINA 8 Series Webinar on Tuesday, June 5. I hope to “see” you then!
