Using fusible thread in the lower looper while attaching binding is a great help. After sewing it on you can fuse it in place to hold while machine or hand stitching. In this I also show you how to turn the corners neatly and close the ends.
Skipped stitches can be very frustrating. You need to make sure your needle is new and is the correct type and size for your thread and project. Re-threading the machine both top and bobbin is many times the answer. Cleaning and oiling are mandatory. But after all this is said and done many times you are still having an issue.
I have made this video to show you how important the height of the foot in relation to the surface of the fabric can be. If there is too much room between the bottom of the foot and the fabric, you can get flagging which will cause skipped stitches. Flagging is where the fabric has room to move up and down with the needle.
I hope you enjoy the demonstration and it helps you to solve a skipped stitch mystery someday.
Let me show you exactly where to oil your BERNINA 8 series sewing/embroidery machine.
I am stitching finger puppets for the 2-year-old twin’s Easter baskets. They, both the twins and the puppets, are adorable! In order to speed up the stitching process, I am combining 4 puppets in each hooping. BERNINA V8 software makes this so easy.
After combining the designs I show you how to use optimize the color changes. This changes the number of times you rethread the machine from 47 to 15. Yes Please!
I hope you learn something useful in your V8 software. Have a great day!
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!
Here is the last video of this 4 part series, Quilt Labels and Lettering with BERNINA V8 software. In this video, I show you how to use sculptured fancy fill, elastic lettering, rotate a hoop, use a built-in design and more. I hope you find it useful!
Here is the third part of learning to create a quilt label and working with lettering in BERNINA V8 software. This time I show you how to use the break-apart tool on lettering and how to copy and apply object properties from one letter to another.
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.
Here is a video on using the BERINA #39 or 39C to gather over a cord.
