Oh my goodness! After market has been a busy time here and my family is just putting up with me and my messes, which have covered the first floor of the house.
First, the patterns arrived from the printer so there was packing and shipping to do. (All market orders and distributor orders have now shipped, so you will see them popping up in the next few days. Look on the sidebar of my blog for shops that carry my patterns and if you are shop that would like to be added to the list please email me. If you place orders through a distributor, I don’t always know to add your name.)
And see those big Bernina boxes in the background? I picked up the Bernina 780 from Sew Much Fun and get two weeks to try all the new features. Is it possible to be in love with a bobbin case? I do – I do – I LOVE this bobbin case. It sews so smoothly and is impossible to thread the wrong way, even for me!
Two weeks is just not long enough with this machine. I get to try all the new software too – DesignWorks Suite includes CutWork, Crystalwork, and PaintWork! I’ll be talking about that here and on We All Sew in late December.
And on top of that there is a new collection to finalize and I just received strike offs from Blend Fabrics for my new Christmas collection – Holiday Bouquet. It will ship in spring. I hope you like it. The ornaments will be so fun to applique!
Hope everyone is enjoying their sewing time and getting lots of it!
