So these past few weeks have been really interesting here at the Eden Creative Sewing Center.  Any way I wanted to fill you in on my latest mission here.  As some of you know, I love to do the quilting and use as well as teach how to use the Pfaff Grand Quilter 18.8 and Imperial Frame.  I have learned that quilting on a frame and using a bigger machine is quite different than doing it on a tiny domestic machine.  Well, this hurdle has to do with a Pfaff Grand Quilter Hobby 1200.

Ok, I get the phone call from the owner stating how she is having a problem with her Pfaff Grand Quilter Hobby 1200 quilting machine.  I had asked her...

So it has been a few weeks now that Carolynn (the owner) has been teaching the Beginners Embroidery Class.  This class is totally awesome!  She has made this class into something that all beginner embroiderers should be taking.  The latest project was embroidering on a towel.  Now it did not matter what kind of towel whether it was a hand towel, bath towel or even a washcloth our people embroidered on them!  One of our customers has even taken this to a different level and is monograming on towels for her family!  Now how awesome is that!  The project was not specific as to what design to use or even what stabilizer to use and that is the beauty of this class.

Carolynn walks you through all the different kinds of stabilizers to use depending...

I sat with a customer yesterday and was going through the computer with her and we were going to put her 300 bonus designs that she received from Pfaff onto her computer. She received a usb stick with all the bonus designs and stitches on it to transfer to her machine. This is just not making sense to me as of right now. I went on the website they told me to go to and download the instructions for taking the designs from the USB Stick and transferring them to the Pfaff Creative Performance. I literally struggled with completing this task. Seriously does not look good when your customer is looking at you and asking you why she is purchasing a machine that we are having issues with. What was happening was when you take everything off the usb stick and then put the designs only back on it, the performance...

Being my first time at a Bernina convention I had the pleasure of meeting some great people as you can see. The energy is rising and we are really excited about what is going to be out there for our Bernina consumers! My good friend Joan Rivers made me promise 2 things to my customers. The first was to share all my knowledge with my store owners. That was the most important thing. The second was to learn about fashion! So now I will have to ask all of you what to do about my wardrobe. Isn’t she fabulous!

Ok so here is the scoop on what is happening in the world of Bernina! There is a lot happening and I want to share some of it with you. It can be a bit overwhelming and that is why we are going to take things slow ok? So here they are!

Drum roll please……….

1st – There are several new machines that will be making their appearance...

A few weeks ago we received one of the coolest machines from Pfaff!  Back at “Get Creative” which is a big Pfaff Dealer Event, they introduced the new Ambition 1.0 and the Ambition 1.5 for dealers to see! So, toward the end of May we received both the Ambition 1.0 and Ambition 1.5 and were totally blown away with the quality of the machine.  Paul took one out of the box and asked me to come over and listen to the machine run.  I could not believe how solid it sounded!  I was really impressed with what this machine is producing!  The Ambition is such a solid machine that is great for the beginner and experienced sewers .  If you are a rookie sewer or an experienced sewer and looking for an extremely affordable machine, the Ambition is here for you.

The Ambitions are super user friendly for the beginner...
