Just make your own fabric!

Friday, March 26th, 2010

When I started thinking about this little purse/clutch that I wanted to stitch, I had an idea of what fabric I wanted to use. Did I have such a piece of fabric in my hands? Uh, no. The solution: create it! I sandwiched a piece of batting between two layers of poly satin. Using my […]

Enhanced features in Bernina’s Quilter program

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

I have used Bernina’s Quilter program in the embroidery software for some projects. It is helpful to be able to actually put fabric samples into blocks, sashing and borders and then insert an embroidery design to “see” what it will look like. It’s not something I use a whole lot, but it is helpful. While […]

Pink suede and minkee blanket

Friday, July 17th, 2009

A customer wanted a blanket created with pink suede and zebra minkee fabric to which I thought, “No problem, I can do that!”. What we decided to do was do one side minkee and the other side suede with swirls quilted to hold the layers together and bind it with pink satin. Not too difficult, […]

See what’s new from Jenny Haskins!

Monday, May 4th, 2009

New and exciting things are always happening on the net! One of the newest ventures is online videos, which I’ve discovered I love! As a consumer and student, it’s quick and easy to “see” the idea, project, technique and can provide a visual guide rather just seeing it in text. As a teacher, it’s a […]

You use a walking foot to create long rows of straight stitching where the stitches are hidden in the seamline of the fabrics. The goal is to stay in the ditch and not stray outside of the seamline.
