You love fabric. You love thread. You love to personalize everything. After all, that’s what our skills are all about. We don’t have to settle for anything. Want to change the neckline of a tee? Done. Want to splash embroidery over a pillow? Done. Want to transform a window? Done. Want to make over your sewing machine? Now, you can!
If you have a Bernina, you can transform it into a piece of art. (Ok, ok, all you Bernina lovers, I know, it already is a work of art!). Check it out for yourself – go to http://www.berninausa.com/DesignSkins and click on Click to Start. It’s easy to customize the skin, but be careful it’s addictive. Not only you can use Bernina’s beautiful images but you can upload any photo – just make sure it’s under 5 MB and larger than 100kb. File formats are jpg, png and gif. The price is reasonable – under $40.00 and proceeds go to Cancer research.
I had a lot of fun – doing this. I decorated four machines then asked my staff to personalize one of their own. Here’s what a few key strokes did for our machines (click on images to make bigger):

Last week’s lucky winner of the Stipple! Geometrics is…Julie!
Julie I love working on new projects. Any book with detailed (very finely) instructions with pictures, using a technique I have never used sits in my “Favorites” collection. I am still looking for the perfect instructions for making a mitered corner on a quilt.
