Free Motion Embroidery

Last night I attended a great free motion embroidery class.  It was my 1st time sewing on Pfaff machines - I had previously been an Elna & Brother fan (& now I adore my Yuki) - and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience!  What lovely machines!!

Have a look at what I did in class & see what you think...

The 2nd one is still to be completed, but it was such fun doing these!!!

Dress A Girl Sewing

Yesterday I had quite a sweat shop going here!  We had a whole team of BIWC members with sewing machines sewing up dresses for charity - the Dress-a-Girl-Around-the-World project.  We are somewhat closer to my '50 dresses to donate' desire!

But, BOY was yesterday hot, and upstairs, under the eaves, it is sweltering!  Even brave Marcela who is almost due to give birth was sewing up a storm in the heat haze!

All worth while when you see what we have accomplished....

We now have 29 dresses!!

Daphne took some footage for the BIWC video & here is a sneak peak of it...
