It's a little tough to get to the open sign these days!
But it is beautiful!
Finally finished my "Modern Art Quilt"
I used Kim Schaefer's newest lines, "Night and Day" and her "Hand Dyes" Series #1. This was a quick and easy quilt to make! I added the piano key border because I wanted a bit more of the hand dyes to shine!
Here is our latest "Color My Stash Club" selection ready to be shipped. February is Black and White Month. To find out more about this cool club go to the website.
Bundles of 8 fat quarters or half yards of our latest black and white fabrics.
The second installment of "Gypsy Wife will go into the mail by Thursday, February 20th. Here is a pic of the next section...
You will be getting the actual pattern book in this shipment. Judith has once again written her helpful hints and Faith has tested the block. Hope you are having fun with this!
Speaking of Faith, here is the latest bag she made using "Soft & Stable" as the stablizer. Aptly this is called the "Vera" Bag
Love the shape of this bag!
And it has pockets and a magnetic snap!
This is the pattern...
By Green Bee. I have been working on our next Block of the Month...Here are 9 blocks on my design wall.
This pattern is also by Green Bee. We will begin this BOM in April. You will get an email announcing the sign up period and deadline.
We are so excited about becoming authorized Bernina Dealers! We spent a week in Aurora Illinois training in Product and Technical. Andrew will be able to repair Berninas' as well as several other brands of sewing machines. Yay! A much needed service here in Southern Vermont.
I was trained to operate all of their models of machines from the 330 up to the 880 series. I even conquered my serging fear!
We should have the machines here in the shop in March! We will be doing a bit of remodeling to accommodate our new "babies".
Here are some more examples of what you can do with the embroidery modules. These are designs created by Bernina. Gorgeous!
Exclusive to Bernina software.
They have done so much to make these machines easy to operate. Leave it to Swiss Engineering!
When we debut our Bernina Sales and Service we will have a "Grand Opening"! You will be notified via email.
We are looking forward to this new addition to our shop. We hope to bring more sewers to the Waterwheel House. We will be expanding into other areas of sewing and crafting as well as offering our quilters new techniques to enhance their projects.
