Who wants to be sewing on this blinged-out beauty tonight?


Have you stopped by the shop and checked out the latest special edition .. the BERNINA 880 Sterling Edition? Not only is it so pretty and come packed with special features, but there are so many additional perks that come with it that truly make this machine a must-have!

We only have one left in stock and with the availability limited, I’m not sure if we will be able to get any more. If you’ve thought about investing in a fantastic machine that will encourage your imagination to run wild, come stop by the shop and test her out.  This machine will do all that you want and more that you didn’t know was possible for a sewing machine!

Along with all the standard features you love on the 880 (12″ from needle to throat, jumbo bobbin, use of the jumbo hoop, stitch designer, etc.) the Sterling Edition comes with all our favorite tools – PaintWorks, CrystalWorks, CutWork, and PunchWork – along with a beautiful Sterling Edition Quilt Kit and bonus coupons for you to add even more to your already tricked out machine.

To celebrate National Embroidery Month, we have special pricing on BERNINA 880 Sterling Edition as well as all of our other BERNINA embroidery machines.

Smocked Lucy Class starting this week! Join us this Friday and learn how to adapt the standard Children’s Corner Lucy jumper and add the smocked panel.  Space is limited so call the shop today and reserve your spot (337.456.2364).


If you’re familiar with the Lucy pattern from Children’s Corner, you’ll remember that it’s just a basic A-line jumper.  Lezette Thomason of Children’s Corner revised the pattern and showed a sample with a smocked panel inserted into the front and a gathered panel  in the back. Sandra took this version of the dress and revised Lezette’s instructions.

This Friday, February 27th, Sandra will help you cut out your fabrics and pleat the insert. You’ll have a couple of weeks to finish the smocking and then meet back to add the piping and finish the dress.  So cute and so much fun! A great way to showoff some smocking but much easier and quicker than a full on bishop.

Price for the class includes both sessions and the pattern. Plus all enrolled students receive 10% off their fabric and notions needed for the class.
