The fabric for Paula Atwood’s “Wool N’ Spools” creation is reclaimed wool from old skirts, etc. that she took apart and felted in the washer. She cut out the positive/negative shapes and needle-punched them to the woolen base using BERNINA’s Needle Punch Accessory Set.
This summer I had the pleasure to co-present a class focusing on several accessories: the Binder Attachment; the Spanish Hemstitch Attachment; the Walking Foot with the new Central Guide Sole; and the Needle Punch Tool. Our project: a decorative trivet featuring a variety of stitching and embellishment techniques.
We’ve all seen machine embroidery, but how about machine stitched needle-punched designs? Carol Nunns combines embroidery and digitized needle-punching to create a uniquely embellished vest featuring OESD’s Steampunk embroidery collection #12378.
Greetings! I’m Paula Scaffidi from www.fiberella.com. Over the last couple of years I worked with BERNINA International to develop the new BERNINA Rotary Punch Tool #45. BERNINA really did engineer the tool-of-my-Fiberella-dreams and I’m so happy it’s time to share it with you!
We will preview the new Rotary Needle Punch Tool in October’s Virtual BERNINA Club, “Vest Dressed.” Check with your dealer if VBC is offered at your store – but either way – be sure to check out the new tool.
Just imagine: pull a boring old sweater from the back of your closet (or the $2 rack at the local thrift store), add a handful of yarn/fiber/fabric scraps, play for 30 minutes, and end up with a one-of-a-kind designer sweater!
