Through The Needle

MarveLes Art StudiosBlogs, Tutorial Leave a Comment

 Recently, I’ve been re-organizing my resources into notebooks – finally just cleaned up the chaos and I have found several extra items that I will be giving away to commenters in the near future as the first-ever “MarveLes” give-a-way! Since it’s usually no more than a couple commenters… you should have a great chance!

So you may recall my latest posts about the Bernina magazine “Through The Needle.”  I realized I didn’t give the link, so I’ve given it below.   And in my re-organizing, I found an issue from a couple months ago, which contains some great information about PAINTSTIKS!  So for all of you who were part of the paintstiks classes I taught this last week at Gallery 16 and at The Silver Thimble, I hope you will go to the website below and check out Issue No. 4 for this great article and free pattern!

This mag is a favorite, not only because it’s a Bernina resource, but it’s also full of great ideas, tips and information, regardless of what machine you may own.  The best part is that it’s FREE online!  While I was kind of disappointed at first that they would no longer print the mag, I have enjoyed getting it delivered into my email, and an extra step is that I have to print them, organize/save them differently.

All you need to do is sign up for them on their website at to download all the issues. 

You will be given two different ways to download, and my favorite is the pdf file.  I thought I would snap a few pictures of the latest from Issue 5:

Fun, new embroidery pattern and they give you ALL the DETAILS 
on the ‘how-tos’ for the most success and fun! 
I love reading the specifics… the exact stitch number, width and length dimensions to use, as well as tension adjustments and placement hints for everything from decorative stitches to embroidery techniques.

Don’t forget to take advantage of the coupon specials for April and May. YAY!

And I’m looking forward to seeing the dimensional flower embroidery in the next issue!  Blessings to you; have a great week y’all!
