Happy Friday, Quilters! We have a guest post up today on Bernina’s WeAllSew blog, and it is the fifth pillow of our In Stitches pillow series! This one is called the Woven with Love Pillow, and we hope you love making it as much as we did. It is quick, simple and adorned with vibrant ribbon! In this color palette, it is a bubbly modern accent, but you can easily switch the look with your favorite colors.
This giveaway is now closed! Congratulations to our winner, Sandy E. O.! She has been contacted and notified. Thank you so much for joining us, and we hope to have more amazing giveaways like this one in the future!
Hey quilters! We are having a huge “The Price is Right” moment right now. You are totally going to love it. Please visualize Bob Barker saying this next part. “We are entering the hottest time of the summer, and there’s no better way to beat the heat than to stay inside and sew… on your brand new BERNINA SEWING MACHIIIIINE!”
But this one, you guys, is not just a B350, this is a B350SE, designed by the remarkable women of Cotton + Steel. They have created two Special Edition faceplate designs, and the one we are giving away is “Hello Lovely”. It is embossed with two lovebirds in a garden of flowers, brightly colored in blues, yellows and pinks. This machine has a MSRP of $1,899!! We are very much tempted to keep this for ourselves, but it just wouldn’t be right! (And it would be hard to justify that to Bernina…)
Watch our video to see a little bit more about this wonderful machine that we are GIVING AWAY.
So… is this your Bernina???
