recipe.... my kind of recipe

No, I am not cooking.  I did find a new kind of recipe, which is right up my alley.  Have you ever heard of a Stitch Recipe?   No pots, no pans, no stove or oven needed.  Just your BERNINA, some thread, some fabric and some stabilizer.
Next Monday I am teaching BERNINA Club at Pins and Needles in Mt Kisco.  Next to the teaching of the class, my favorite part is preparing for it.   I get out my ziplock bags, fill them when everything I need, write notes to myself, and do everything I can to make sure that my students have a great time and learn something along the way.  
Monday's BERNINA Club is all about decorative stitches on your BERNINA and how to use them.  One way is to combine them into a stitch recipe.... like this
Wouldn't this look great on a little girl's dress, or on a pillow, or a table runner, or........
The possibilities are endless.  
The other reason that I love teaching BERNINA  Club is that I learn a lot as I prepare too.  
It's all about lining up!  
As always BERNINA makes it easy by having online lessons and the best accessories ever .
The only problem is, once you get started doing these, you can't stop.  
Happy Sewing everyone


  1. Jill would be delighted to know that you are using her stitch recipes. She's no longer with us, but she's smiling down on us as we push our machines to create beautiful things!

  2. oh please tell me more about her. I'm just using this recipe I found in the BERNINA e book on Stitch manipulations. I am honored to use it. Thanks for the kind words. I'd love to share her story at BERNINA Club next week. I think it's important that everyone know how many hard people worked creating these things.
