Joy has made these lovely pillowcases as welcome gifts for some Ukranian refugees and has embroidered their names on them using the Cyrillic alphabet.
Can I also say a huge thank you to Anna, via this email, as she was a wonderful help over the phone, yet again, in enabling me to find cyrillic in the software. Oh boy! what a task. A friend is to be hosting some Ukrainians, and I though I would make quick quilts, but they are arriving very quickly – so pillowcases, I thought would be easier and quicker. But I couldn’t work out how to do their names because of the lettering. Anna came to the rescue.Joy
Jayne made this beautiful Butterfly Word Sculpt for a friend. She used the Word Sculpt wizard in the mySewnet 2021 software and has framed it as a gift, what a lucky friend!
Sue has recently made Simplicity S8845 Mimi G Style Jean Jacket, which can be made for men, women or teens and features real pockets! She made it in a gorgeous red cotton twill and this is what she had to say about it:
I’ve sewn the Mimi G style jacket using the flat fell foot for some of the seams & was very pleased with it. I overlocked the seams where there was two flat fell seams coming together because of the bulk & then made the flat fell seam. I used cotton twill.Sue
We have another quilt from Anna’s talented family – this time it’s her Grandma Christine! The fabric is from the Guess How Much I Love You collection, while the label was created using Premier+2 software and the embroidered blocks are Premier+2 SuperDesigns.
Those of you who shop with us in store are probably aware than Anna, our software expert, comes from a family of quilters. Her mum, Allison, has made a gorgeous quilt from the Farm Days collection by Dashwood Studios. She cut 16 4.5″ squares out of each of her 6 fat quarters and arranged them on the diagonal. She stitched quarter inch seams and used the interchangeable dual feed on her Sapphire 930 to quilt onto 80/20 cotton blend wadding.
