Aprons. Memories and Practicals

Sonja shared with us some history, some memories and some practical matters-of: Aprons!

Thank you, as well, for wearing/showing your favorite apron. It was a pleasure to see a few of the winning Attendee’s-Choice aprons for that club's meeting - and, to hear your stories/memories.

Pillow Talk

Attendees brought interesting pillows that they created themselves and had decorated their living space with.

We had some fun "pillow talk" about piping and cording, ruffles and pleats, pintucks and patchwork. We tried out the new Bernina Q20 quilting machine, too!

Summer Dress Transformation

We saw how one summer dress could be transformed with different machine techniques and embellishments. Heirloom, tucks and pleats, embroidery, hem variations and more.

Making it Your Own

We talked about: "What if we can't find that perfect bag"? Then, we discussed different ways to alter a pattern to add our own special touch. The possibilities are endless!

Stabilizers in Their Sewing Room

Ursula (of our store) found - and, showed us - the perfect purse pattern: Ursula and Emily by The Creative Thimble. In her quest to pair it with the perfect wallet, she’s showed us her results in experimenting  with some very cool products such as Art Cloth and Soft and Stable.

Also The Creative Thimble had a trunk show during Bernina Club.

Zippers for closures. Zippers for embellishment. Zippers for many applications. Ann Johnson (of our store) taught some great insertion techniques.

We saw bunches of creative pattern samples she had stitched to inspire us.
