Another fun day

Yesterday I attended an "event" at my local quilt shop, which is also my Bernina dealer. It's Quiltique, and it's a great shop. :) They hosted a sort of workshop where we could get a little hands-on practice with the new Bernina 500-series machines. The practice resulted in a journal cover for each of us who attended, and I really like mine! I didn't buy a new machine, but I have a friend who's considering doing it. My journal cover is at left, and the back is below:



We had so much fun with the built-in embroidery stitches and couching down various trims! I don't have the embroidery module for my Bernina, so it was really interesting to watch my monogram emerge from the machine. :)

  1. What a neat hands on experience. I recently bought the 635 with the embroidery unit. No embroidery going on but I love the machine -- it's quiet, makes a wonderful stitch. The only thing I don't like is that I have to put the foot down before I can even pull the thread up from the bobbin. Bummer. But I am learning to adapt.
