Lenore Dembski Paperbark Woman has fabrics and scarves from a number of Northern Territory Aboriginal communities.
The textiles and scarves have been decorated by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. There are also fabrics that have been mass produced using designs by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
The textile sizes vary from patchwork pieces 10cm by 7cm to rolls of fabric and cut pieces up to 5 metres long.
The base materials in the textiles are made from various types of cloth including: cotton woven and stretch, poly-cotton woven and stretch, synthetic stretch/lycra, silk and linen.
The artists have used a number of different ways to decorate the textiles – including single or combinations of the following: silk painting, lino printing, screen printing, batik, tie-dye, stencil and hand painting. The mass produced textiles have been manufactured under the artistic guidance of the particular artists.
There are many different artists involved in producing the textiles and scarves.
Dear Bernina Club members,
Earlier in the year Olivia demonstrated on how to use quilting rulers. At the time of the demonstration Bernina had not developed the foot for domestic Bernina Machines. Well now they have and it is Foot #72. Please refer to the information below for all of the foot information and don't forget we have as part of our Christmas promotion, 20% off ALL accessories.
We are excited to announce that the new Bernina Q20 Long Arm Machine has arrived at Bernina Chermside. We welcome you to come into the store to have a look at this fantastic new machine.
We all had such a great time Laughing & Learning with Martyn as he highlighted some of the other uses for Bernina feet in dress making and tailoring which included the Jeans foot #8 ~ Applique foot #23 ~ Piping foot #38. Martyn has a wealth of sewing knowledge which he gladly shared with all of us on the day, thank you so much.
Martin ~ Sharon ~ Olivia
The BERNINA Patchwork Foot # 97D is designed for straight-stitching and is ideal for sewing ¼" or ⅛" seam allowances and top stitching. It is available for BERNINA machines that have a maximum stitch width of 9mm and dual feed. The #97 foot is identical but it is for the 9mm non differential machines.
The foot print of the sole fits perfectly with the feeding system for the most accurate feeding and stitching when piecing patchwork blocks on a 9mm BERNINA machine. Patchwork Foot #97D is designed to work with BERNINA Machines equipped with the BERNINA Dual Feed feature.
Included with Patchwork Foot #97D, the move-able seam guide is separate from the foot and is attached to the sewing bed of the machine. Use to aid in sewing perfectly straight ¼" seams. Especially helpful for beginners, this guide also offers extra insurance to experienced piecers.
The Straight Stitch Plate is recommended to be used in conjunction with the Patchwork Foot.
BERNINA CHERMSIDE has a special offer of 20% off the RRP with the presentation of the below voucher instore. The Recommended Retail Price is $80 for #97D and $60 for #97.
