Millefiori Gathering 2017/2018 at Bernina World of Sewing

This project ended with the final Gathering held on November 26, 2018.
This Web page was aimed at being a central repository of information for our 2018 Millefiori Gathering. The Gathering was based upon Millefiori or La Passacaglia quilts involving hand-pieces with a running stitch as discussed in 2017 during a class taught at Bernina World of Sewing by Shirley Usry.

This Gathering took place monthly, and started in September 2017, and continued:

  • The last Monday of each month, 5:30-8:00pm.
    The FINAL Millefiori Gathering was November 26, 2018. We are ending this project for now. Thank you for participating!

For participating in the Gathering, you were reminded that:

  • The Millefiori Gathering participants have participated in our Millefiori classes and wish to expand their experience.

  • For the 2018 Millefiori Gathering, a yearly fee of $30 is charged when the attendee commits to the Gathering.

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

  • 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 2018 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.

Further information will be available on this Webpage and via eMail sent to Gathering participants.

The 2018 Millefiori Gathering was over-subscribed. If you wish more information about the monthly 2017/2018 Millefiori Gathering (last Monday of each month):

We had a lot of "quiet time" hand-sewing - and: Interesting discussions! Enjoyable. Thank you.

October 2018

The year is "winding down" and it is wonderful to see - each other - and, one's work! The discussions are, also, special. Thank you.


September 2018

Another interesting-discussions and hand-sewing evening. Thank you, for both of!


August 2018

"Back to Normal". It was great to see some of the Summer-Vacation people back in action and to see everyone's beautiful work. Thank you.


Arrived Here Sept. 4, 2018 - Thank you, Nancy!

July 2018

Summer Doldrums! Soon: "Back to Normal". An enjoyable July evening while looking forward to the end-of-Summer, soon.


May 2018

An "early end" to the evening, due to the VERY heavy rain! Ok -- We all made it home safely. It was still a "productive" evening and a pleasure to share the time/discussions. Thank you. Have a good Summer!


April 2018

Handwork: Terrific. Everyone is working at their own speed; the monthly get-togethers inspire / "push" me to keep going!


March 2018

More beautiful work. The March weather has been defeated! Spring has arrived. Good.


February 2018

Some beautiful work. Congratulations - to us!


January 2018

It has been fun to meet new members of our group - and, to see the group "growing"! It is a positive sign and it is clear that building this Millefiori group was a good decision -- and the monthly get-togethers are inspiring to us all.


November 2017

See you in January, 2018. Time flies! We are taking a break end-December. Have a perfect start to 2018.


October 2017

Another fun / relaxing evening. And: Productive, even!

Have a good month.


September 2017

I am happy that I "re-discovered" hand-piecing. I enjoy hand-piecing and it will be a pleasure to be doing that together - with you. I look forward to the next 12 months of "Millefiori" as a complement to all of our other projects.
