A Day with Nina

Last Friday, my LQS Sew Original sponsored a day with Nina McVeigh to learn more about the Bernina quilting frame and Quilter’s Creative Touch. Nina is a wonderful Bernina educator and I was very excited to meet her!

It was interesting to see Creative Touch in action. And Nina had loads of ideas to make it your own design.

I love this criss cross design. These patterns are from One Song Needle Arts.

She brought a lot of samples of her amazingness!

And the best part if the presentation was a little segment on machine binding techniques. I’m usually a strict hand binding person, but if I can get good looking machine binding, I’m open to it. This was a cool technique she does with yarn. (More on this later!)

And the bias binder! I have one, but I have definitely not yet mastered it looking perfect!

It was a great day! And Nina was just as awesome as I had hoped!! If you ever have a chance to take a class from her, do it! After class, I headed to Chapel Hill for Carolyn Friedlander!! More on that soon!

  1. I have seen Nina in many videos and she is AWESOME! She has so much knowledge and is a great teacher (explains each step so well), I would love to be able to take a class from her…..I envy you that you had that opportunity :)

  2. I really hate that I missed that. I signed up for the last 2 times that she was scheduled to come. Was not able to come this time. Thanks for posting this information.
