Hint of the Month

December-January 2016-2017

Smart Shopping. Perhaps it would be easier to say "Be a Smart Shopper". However, getting me to admit that I am not a "Smart Shopper" would be difficult to do: I try and "believe" that I am a smart shopper... yet, it was an interesting exercise to remind myself of a few matters that I would consider to be part of Smart Shopping. For discussion:
  • Purchase quality that meets one's primary objective - at the time of purchase. Recently, I purchased a SmartPhone. I need it, basically, as a mini-computer (testing Web matters and accessing eMail). For $300 I have been able to do quite well for my objectives and I, so far, have not seen a reason for me to pay more. Will my objectives change and I "need" the features of a more expensive SmartPhone? I will see -- when I discover features that my $300 SmartPhone does not provide to me. Will I regret spending the $300 at the time of purchase and, then "need" to invest more later? Well... we will see, eventually, if I did some Smart Shopping...
  • Purchase for a reason. Another way of saying: No impulse buying! Ok, sometimes we do buy on an impulse -- but, we try to not do so. For example: Perhaps, there are cases when purchasing a "don't mind if it breaks in a year or so" item makes sense. If not, purchase what can be expected to last; sometimes, warranty-period duration can be an indicator.
  • Don't underestimate customer service. We talked about this somewhat in previous month's Hints -- but, certainly, it is a matter worth, always, keeping in mind for a significant purchase. Whatever one purchases: Service - and, Customer Service - will no doubt be necessary.
  • Consider - and, be careful-with taking advantage of - financing "deals". Yes, in today's financial world interest rates are low and there are wonderful opportunities to enjoy something at a very-nice monthly rate of payment. Just keep in mind that multiple years can be a long time. Perhaps, waiting a time will be better than buying now? Perhaps. Just: Be a Smart Shopper.

What would be a Smart Shoppimg Hint from your point of view?

Press Release April 1, 2015

Comment from Sonja (of our staff): I had a chance this week to sew selected decorative stitches on both the 740 and the 770QE. I used the BERNINA 20D foot and both machines sewed perfectly.

Stop by and try.

From Sonja: I had the opportunity to "play" with the brand new Chicago 7. I was amazed how many embroidery designs there were pre-loaded. The embroidery was very easy to learn and to use. It appears to be a great way for us to get started with embroidery and gives those who thought embroidery sewing machines were out of their reach a real way to discover how embroidery can be fun and worthwhile!

A Few Comments From Sonja of Bernina World of Sewing
After First Use of BERNINA 7 Series

The first time I saw the 780 I fell in love with the machine! I have not found one thing, so far, that "concerns" / bothers me.

The new design is elegant while also having a touch of "streamlining".

So far, I have had a chance to work/"play" with the 780 and the 710.

  • The stitch selection on both is a straight-forward matter. The touch screen on both machines makes it easy to become familiar with the stitch folders.

  • On the 710 I tried some of the new quilting stitches. I was impressed how the multi-directional stitch's sewing line was easily maintained.- even with the 9mm stitch blade. I definitely want to use some of the stitches with a wing needle; especially, stitch 1352 seems to have potential.

  • For the 780, if I have multiple embroidery designs in the screen / hoop, I can see the order that I have inserted the different designs (by way of "table tabs" - via the Retrieve Function Icon support of the 780). I was working with a customer the other day and with less than five minute's experience on the machine she had a very beautiful multi-design finished piece ready to go! It was very impressive to the customer and to me.

A Few Comments From Sonja of Bernina World of Sewing
After First Use of BERNINA 5 Series

  • The control panel is “next generation” and takes some getting used to. It you are a “text-er” and part of the networking generation it will come easily!
  • Embroidery on the 580 is touch-screen; to me, it is kind of like a “baby 830” operating-wise.
  • Many embroidery patterns are already loaded onto the 580.
  • I leapt right in to using one of these patterns. Multiplied, Mirror Image and Reduce 50%. All were easy to do and stitched out perfectly!

If you have time, we would love to show you the BERNINA 5 Series!


BERNINA 3 Series

Stop By And Give Us A Look - and SEW using it.



Some Comments From Bernina Staff - After Working With the 3 Series for a Few Months

The next time that you visit our store, we would like to invite you to get to know the 3 Series machine if you have not already done so.

The machine is truly inspiring and invites us to create.

BERNINA took the time to put together a reasonable-priced sewing machine with some extra – and, valuable – features

We can highly recommend that you take the time to sew some with the 3 Series machines.

As we had mentioned in our previous post:

  • The physical design of the 3 Series is very attractive; classy and contemporary.
  • Bright screen; easy reading!
  • Background is black and the writing is white. Very comfortable to read.
  • Start and Stop button, with Speed Control
  • Needle Up and Down
  • Separate motor for bobbin-winding.
  • One-step buttonhole.
  • Handle (at the top of the machine) has an opening for the Stitch Card. Nice!
  • The new tray is very easily attached. Nice glide!
  • All 3 Series machines have 30 memory slots.

Most of all, the 3 Series machines have a beautiful stitch and they sew quietly and the sewing is “smooth”.

The 3 Series comes with clip-on feet that are very easily exchangeable. In addition, the specialty feet that BERNINA makes may be used on this machine. This is a big advantage for those sewers who invest in specific feet for special tasks; for example: Feet for piping, rufflers, or quilting feet.

Don’t hesitate to ask any of us at the store to show you the 3 Series!

Gatherings

Bernina World of Sewing - Gatherings 2017

The first project that will be part of the 2017 Gatherings is based upon creating a Two-Color quilt using patterns inspired by the book: "modern neutrals, A fresh look at Neutral Quilt Patterns" By Amy Ellis.

The 2017 Gatherings are taking place monthly, starting in January 2017: (Note: January's Evening Gathering date may be changed slightly. Please stay tuned for the January dates).

  • Evening Gathering: The second Monday of each month, 5:00-9:00pm.
  • Daytime Gathering: The third Tuesday of each month, 10:00am-4:00pm.

We look forward to seeing all your beautiful work.

Note: You MUST be pre-registered to participate in the monthly Gatherings. Just "Show-Ups" the day/evening of the Gathering will not be allowed - we simply do not have room for such in the classroom. Sorry!

Those who signed up and are participating in the Gatherings have been contacted via eMail. For those participating and have been contacted, the first session for the 2017 Morning Gathering is currently planned for: Tuesday, February 21 2017 10:00am at the store and the first session 2017 Evening Gathering is currently planned for: Monday, February 13 2017 5:00pm at the store . Again: Please do NOT show up for the Gathering if you have not been contacted (there, simply, is not sufficient space for "walk-in" participants). Sorry!

If you wish to be placed on the Wait List for either of the Gatherings - or, to be notified if an opening comes about for either the Daytime or Evening 2017 Gatherings, please send mail to: modernneutralsbwos at Bernina World of Sewing dot com

Reminders:
  • The Gathering participants purchased, from our store, the book chosen to be part of this Gathering and the fabric needed for this quilt..

  • For the 2017 Gatherings, a yearly fee of $50 is charged when the attendee commits to the first Gathering he/she attends.

  • Gathering participants should have experience in sewing and in making quilts.

  • Gathering participants, surely, interact. However, the Gathering is not a class . Each participant is expected to be able to manage his/her own project.

  • The store will not be able to arrange and set-up class machines for use during the Gatherings. Gathering participants should bring to the Gathering what they need for sewing/cutting during the Gathering.

  • Due to the numerous options / aims / of each Gathering participant, space at the Gathering is limited.
    Gathering Participants must be pre-signed up. "Drop in" participants, due to classroom class size and machine space limitations will not be accommodated. Sorry!

  • If a Gathering participant decides to "drop out" of the 2017 Gatherings, it would be appreciated if that were known by the store; there may a wait-list and, if a Gathering slot opens - Persons on the wait-list will be notified of such.

2017 Gatherings

Our 2017 Daytime and Evening Gatherings have started. The first project that will be part of the 2017 Gatherings is based upon creating a Two-Color quilt using patterns inspired by the book: "modern neutrals, A fresh look at Neutral Quilt Patterns" By Amy Ellis.

February, 2017

What a hard-working group! It was a pleasure to be working alongside you. Your "homework" really paid off. A LOT of progress in this first full month.

Have a good month - see you, in March (if not before, at the store or otherwise).

In 2015, we had two Gatherings (Plus, we started the Gemstone Daytime Gathering that ended in 2016):

Our May-thru-August-2015 Gathering project was involved with three options of patterns for the Gathering participant.

Our January-thru-April-2015 Gathering project was Inspired by Downton Abbey Fabric from andover Fabrics
And by the book: Take 5 Fat Quarters, written By Kathy Brown, Published by Martingale.

We used, primarily, the andover Downton Abbey fabrics that arrived in November, 2014,
with some of the attendees using additional andover Downton Abbey fabrics that arrived as early-2015 moved along.

In 2011, we had two full-year "Gatherings".

Each of the Gathering's quilts were selected with two objectives firmly in mind:
1) Beautiful pieces and
2) Quilts that you might view as "once in a lifetime" happenings; Not necessarily quilts you would make on a regular basis.
