Hello Bernina Lovers ! This week I dedicated a few hours to a project that I really wanted to try. Trying a different kind project… I am not an underwear specialist although I have sewn panties and even bras for myself in the past. But this time I wanted to give a try to a men slip. Long story short… My partner has survived 3 lymphomas in his life, and due to that he is very skin sensitive and hates feeling any kind of seams in his clothing (he actually wears all the t-shirts wrong side out) and obviously he feels the same when wearing underwear. He is not a boxer kind of person, he prefers we ..read more

GREY CROWNED CRANES (FAMILY LIFE) MY INSPIRATION FOR THIS ART QUILT I get my inspiration mostly from nature so when I saw one of these majestic birds on a golf course years ago, I knew I had to create it from fabric. It wasn’t till a couple of years ago that I discovered a wonderful photographer, Johann Harmse and asked him if he has a photo that I can use so that I could fulfil that wish! Three GREY CROWNED CRANES reminds me of a little family (fabric collage and thread painting) HOW I DESIGNED MY GREY CROWNED CRANES QUILT. The photograph was perfect, all I had to do was to enlarge it. Here ..read more

Normally I draft a pattern, make a toile, fit, adapt pattern and sew the final garment. As th ..read more

Which stabilizer for which material? Material tutorial
BERNINA Corporate Blog

Choosing the right stabilizer With my blog post today, I want to focus on the subject of embroidery. As you know, for decades BERNINA has been developing high-quality embroidery and sewing machines, along with accessories that help us create wonderful embroidery designs in no time at all. However, truth be told: we’ve all been annoyed when an embroidery design has bunched up the fabric, when the border line has shifted or, worse still, when a hole has formed in the material. In any case, this has certainly happened to me before. Such problems often come down to the stabilizer. Therefore, in to ..read more

If you asked my husband, he’d say that I was addicted to two things: Dark chocolate and, Throw pillows. Listen, I don’t know why I am the way I am, but something about pillows just makes me happy. They come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, textures. The combinations are endless. Sewing a pillow cover is also an economical way to update your sofa, or interior design. I’ve made lots of custom pillow covers as a way to change up colors or even the general vibe of a room. This specific design was a great way to use some velvety fabric that I picked up recently. It’s so soft and has a sheen that m ..read more
