BERNINA Ambassador Retreat

BERNINA Ambassador Retreat Dec 2013

This morning I hop a flight to Chicago and go to BERNINA land, Aurora, IL for a 3 day retreat for BERNINA Ambassadors at the Creative Center. The retreat is either Monday though Wednesday or Wednesday through Friday. Tonight is the opening reception where we’ll meet who’s there. This is so fun. Tomorrow and Friday we’ll “work a little, sew a little, eat a little, sew a little more” spending time getting to know each other, the amazing BERNINA staff and the machines.

We might even get to play on the Q24 long arm. While I am a committed domestic machine quilter (home sewing machine) I do like to get to play on the long arm machines to get a feel for how the long arm quilters think. It is a bit different. Moon Set will be delivered either tonight or tomorrow. I have to finish the facing on it before delivery. Yesterday as I stitched on the facing I stitched it on the wrong way and had to put it on again. I have to mention that Susan Brubaker Knapps directions (see yesterday’s post) are easy to follow and the facing turned out well. One note: when topstitching the facing down monofilament thread would be perfect!

Moon SetOver the next few days I’ll be on instagram @terilucas and on fb so watch for photos there. I come back and go right to work on Saturday.

Happy Quilting!
