Garage Sewing Studio part 2

Sewing in Garage part 2. My Sewing studio, sewing room, sewing space in the garage of my house.

I have uncovered everything in my garage studio and am ready to stitch. Come take a look at my functional, instead of a beautiful, space. I am blessed to have the square footage of a garage off the main house that can be used for my stitching. I love seeing where others sew and decided to share my space with you. Be sure to subscribe!

Color Photostitch in BERNINA V8.2 software

Hi guys! With all of us needing a distraction from the real world, I decided now would be the time to continue helping you learn to use your BERNINA V8.2 software. Here is a video using the Color Photostich tool in the auto digitize toolbox. Even if you might not use this tool for an actual stitch out, you will become more familiar with how to move around in the software just by watching and then trying it yourself. I hope you enjoy it!

Garage Sewing Studio

I sew in my garage and just love it. I feel very blessed that my husband does not mind at all. Granted his truck is too large for the garage anyway……but I will give credit where credit is due. We walk through this area to come and go and so I get to see everyone all of the time rather than being in a space that is not in the public eye.

Because this is the main come and go path for the house, I really try to keep organized. I have not done anything to the garage except unplugging the openers so the doors don’t accidentally go up. After making this video I realize I really need to call an electrician and get some of the power dealt with so that will be accomplished soon.

I have two videos. One is what my space looks like when I am out of town, which is often. I travel and present events for BERNINA all over the United States and love meeting so many stitchers. The other is what my space looks like when I first uncover everything and begin to stitch. I should do a third video showing what a mess it can become when in the middle of a creative hurricane. That being said, I really do try to stay somewhat organized because like I said at the first, everyone walks through this space daily.

I enjoy seeing where people sew and create and so I decided to share my space with you. My main point being, it does not have to be beautiful, just functional.


Quilt label with fusible backing for a perfect turned edge.

Here is a video that I found from last January that shows using fusible for a backing to your quilt label so that it is perfectly turned and easily applied ready to hand stitch in place. Since I just showed you how to create this type of quilt label with lettering, I was very happy to find that I had made a video showing the actual process of turning it for application to the quilt back.
