I have a new Q20 BERNINA sit down longarm and am loving it! Luckily I found all sorts of unfinished quilt tops from the last few years that I can happily practice and learn new skills on. Yesterday I was Quilting in the wild fabric. Great place to learn and not have it show too much. #BERNINAQ20#crosshatching
Here is a post from my facebook page that will really help when you get thread in and out of the tension or thread that is shredding and breaking at the needle. This is shown on a serger but the premise is the same on a sewing machine. You do not even have to un-thread the machine sometimes, just turn the spool over and continue. Other times it may work best to turn the spool and re-thread. Be sure to use a thread net when needed.

I broke my new echo clip and I don’t want you to do the same so here is a video that shows how to use and attach the Echo Quilting Clips easily. They are awesome!
This a a great video from BERNINA about needles. Figuring out which needle and thread to use for your current fabric will save so much frustration and make your stitching smooth and beautiful. It is important to test a few samples before starting to get it right. Keep many types and sizes of needles on hand so that you can find the correct one. Needles are the least expensive tool in your sewing room and one of the most important.
I was making a little bag this morning and realized that i have a great corner trick to share with you. So here is the video. Have fun!
Two posts in one day! Crazy.
