gifts for grandma Coverstitch and Chainstitch- Free Video Tutorial decorative pillow shams

If you’;ve been visiting WeAllSew for a while, you may have deduced that I adore my overlockers. Well, I have a new little guy nowgifts for grandma, sitting on the table next to my 1150 MDA: ?The L 220 cover- and chainstitch machine.

The L 220 only does one basic stitch formation –?cover/chain –?so it’;s easy to set up and thread. It doesn’;t do an overlock stitch, and it doesn’;t have a knife to trim edges. But it’;s always ready when I want to attach a stretchy binding to a neckline, topstitch a seam in a swimsuit, or hem a ?jersey knit skirt. It can do so many other things, too! You’;ll see some of them in this video tutorial from BERNINA International, as well as tips for threading the machine and adjusting the settings for different effect.?

Hello friends! It has been a crazy week around here. Since I shared our dining room makeover plans with you last week, we have managed to get a lot done this weekend. It happened to be my birthday weekend, so some of my friends thought it was weird that we were busy painting and hanging a light fixture, but that's exactly what I wanted to do for my birthday. And don't worry–I did get to enjoy some cake and sushi (my favorite).
