how do I love thee, dear BERNINA, let me count the ways....

I am teaching BERNINA Club at Pins and Needles in Mt Kisco NY.  I love it.  Being with BERNINA owners and "want to be" BERNINA owners, letting me share my passion for all things BERNINA, well there is nothing better.  Each month I try to plan something for everyone to learn more about what their machine can do.  It doesn't matter what BERNINA you own, you can learn a tip or two about your machine.  
In February we are doing Machine Appliqué.  
I made up this little sample, it's like a table topper,  
I reached in the back of the stash cupboard and found a piece of this BERNINA batik I had from years ago.  The big heart shows satin stitch appliqué, then the heart on top using blanket stitch
The middle size hearts are invisible appliqué, using fusible interfacing,

I even did some appliqué with decorative stitches.  
Picture not shown, I did raw edge appliqué too.  
If you have a BERNINA dealer and they offer BERNINA Club, try and take the class.  You always learn something new that your machine can do.  
BERNINA has great online lessons too.... 
They are great reference materials to have on hand when you want to try something new.  
Check them out!  
Mailing my sample out today to Pins and Needles... once I get it away from my cat Phoebe
 My BERNINA Q20 has become her new favorite place to sit... especially as I am attempting to quilt.
Happy Sewing!
