Hi All,

It is HERE!!!  As noted in our previous chat where we advertised Deborah Louie’s book – Glamorous Clams – was soon to be released.  Well…. GUESS…. WHAT… we have them available NOW.  

This BERNINA 125-year anniversary special edition book and templates will give you the skills to master your machine with decorative stitching. Deborah explains what, when, why and how to use the many wonderful BERNINA machine features.

This book has full colour photographs showing all of the steps needed to make a cushion or wall hanging, including domestic free motion and walking foot machine quilting. Deborah explains threads, fabric choices, preparation technique, machine set up and stitching the clam shells as well as how to maximise features like mirror reverse up/down/left/right, combining stitches, centre-line and side-line stitches, satin stitches, single repeat, stitch density and pattern elongation.

Photos of stitched clamshells and the machine’s computer screen make this book a complete user’s guide and a must have.

RRP:  $55.00 (51-page full-colour glossy book & 4-piece template set)

Remember that as a member of our Sewing Club you will receive a discount on this book…. yahoo!!! so for you it is only $50.00.  More details about our sewing club can be found at either:
