Bernina World of Sewing - and
PIECEMAKERS Times and Seasons 2012- Pattern, Gatherings and Related Matters


This Web page is aimed at being a central repository of information for our 2011 projects related to the Piecemakers pattern purchased by our customers at Bernina World of Sewing. For convenience, we will refer to: "PIECEMAKERS Times and Seasons 2012" as, simply, "Piecemaker" or "Piecemakers". This page is intended especially for those of you who participate in our Gatherings for the Piecemaker project.


This Gathering project has been completed.

At this time, we do not plan on any future Gatherings for this project. However, as this project was known to be a long-term matter, we will keep our Piecemaker Weblog going in 2012 and post some of the Weblog-contributed photos here. If you are interested in participating directly in our private Piecemaker Weblog or have any questions/comments about this project - please contact our Webmaster send mail regarding Piecemaker to: Webmaster for Bernina World of Sewing

Congratulations to Ann T. for her continued progress! Inspiring. Beautiful work. I wish her - and, you - a wonderful Holiday. Perhaps the Piecemaker's pieces that we have made so far in this long-term project will give some smiles to those who see them in "actuality".

Good luck with your efforts during this long-term project!

November, we took a break. December we are "back in action"! Don't worry about YOUR progress: We all know this is a LONG TERM effort. See you in December!. We will continue the Piecemakers' Gatherings in January if there is interest in our doing so.

October 3, 2011

What a nice, relaxing evening we had October 3. I enjoyed the "visit" - and, taking time for my center-work. Ann T's success continues to inspire me. I hope that all of you who can afford the time will stop by the evening of Nov. 7. Don't worry about YOUR progress: We all know this is a LONG TERM effort. See you in November!.

We had another small-but-effective group! Congratulations to Ann T's completed January and April blocks. Inspiring! We welcomed a new participant to our Gathering; thank you, Jennifer, for joining us. See you all, next, at the store on October 9.

August 3, 2011

The August Gathering was, again, a small group. We were not only "small" - but, quiet and it was very relaxing! We were deep in concentration, working with tiny branches as well as small shoes for reindeer. We also learned that heat-and-bond is not working well with Dupioni silk.


July 6, 2011

The July Gathering was a small celebration of "Piecemakers" in July! We were a small group - but, even so we shared a lot of "stuff". I especally liked the "pendulum" for the block with the grandfather's clock. See you, next, in August.

The June Gathering was a fun get-together; we are starting to see the first blocks evolve. A couple are, even, near finished! Congratulations.

May 6, 2011

We had our first Piecemaker's Gathering on May 2 at the store and we have a great start for this project!

We had nine people take the time to join us and everyone either already had some plans/activities in-place or used this first Gathering as a starting point. I was very excited as I saw the group already working well together; sharing opinions and experiences/ideas. We are very lucky that within the group we have hand-applique and machine-applique specialists participating. I am already looking forward to the next meeting.

The Piecemakers Calendar 2012 quilt (the actual quilt made by the Piecemakers company, located in California) and two other pieces was at our store in March, 2011.

Having the quilt "in person" was fun - and, inspiring as we started this project. Being able to see the details should help as we "finish" whatever parts of the quilt/pattern that we work on.

If you wish to see photos of the quilt, taken while it was in our store, click on the following. Note: Some of the shown photos are large-sized; wider/taller than you computer screen. You will have to use your Web Browser's scroll bar to see particular parts, in detail, as you "go through" the quilt. We thought, perhaps, having detailed photos might help us / encourage us to come up with approaches to "replicate" the detail. We see, how this works out.
