I’ll even throw in a free sewing tip. The tip is: Clean up your sewing machine area in between projects. Also … Read More

I haven’t seen any of those.I tried adding decorative stitching, but even with Nina the Bernina and her 9mm wide stitch capability, it wasn’t quite cutting it. Then I found THIS in … Read More
