WHAT’S GOING ON IN THIS CORNER OF THE SEWING WORLD? PART3

While at SEWEXPO I attended a great hands-on class with Alba Fekete of Janome America: we worked on one of my big favourites: the JANOME MC 9900 and , yes, it was very nice to be seated on that other side of the embroidery machine for a change! We embroidered blocks that Alba had digitized to look just like quilt blocks – instead of patchwork piecing, the blocks are embroidered in thread. An interesting concept with quite a lot of potential. Alba had some lovely samples on show so I am inspired to use these designs again for some other projects. I have not completed my project yet but here are a couple of pics of my work in progress:

      Hi Ceil,

      I believe they may be or will be shortly. Alba told me she was finalizing the packaging. I will find out & add an addendum to the blog post.

    That is really nice. Imagine we can now say to our husbands, “Look what I made and I didn’t even cut it up to sew it back together again.
