I know you have a long arm, but do you quilt with your Bernina on that sewing table? I have the Alex units as well, showed your table to hubby and asked him how difficult it would be. I'm concerned about drag, as I have to do a smaller table. I do not have a long arm, just a little machine.
I wanted to use your link to amazon re: iPad holder but before it opened it, I saw a warning that the site was likely harmful! Upon viewing the link, it isn't amazon- left at least 1 vowel out & I recognize that with links, all letters may not be there but getting that type warning made me stop progressing & I hope to return to try it again because I really liked it but you didn't speak in detail on that iPad holder. Thanks for understanding as I don't mean this as critical but figured you'd want to be aware.
I also like Annie Unrein (ByAnnie dot com) & I wondered if you have enjoyed her Craftsy classes. She is my very favorite instructor in Craftsy as her voice is very easy to learn from & her preparation for classes is perfection & represents many hours of work to be ready to film classes. I wonder if Stash & Dash might be her next Craftsy class!
While I enjoyed your tour I was disappointed you hadn't tried Superior threads in your drawer & you quickly glossed past the Bottom Line which is their famous bobbin thread that's widely used. Superior's King Tut & Masterpiece by Alex Andersen that you showed- you can see that they state & require that their cotton thread is guaranteed growth in Egypt to be the extra long staple cotton that's available only from there. Many other thread companies allude to that cotton but do not guarantee that 100% ys grown in Egypt which makes a big difference & you are clearly a detail oriented person so I thought you might like to know that detail,
Your video was very enjoyable & yes re: thumbs up!
Thank you for showing us your studio. I haven't started to get my sewing room together yet, but have had lots of ideas floating around in my head. After watching this video I have now decided on what I want to do, hope you don't mind if I use some of your storage ideas, starting with your Ikea drawers.
Hi Margaret. You're sewing table is the best! Is your Bernina an Artista? I have an Artista 170 for about 20 years. Recently the feed dogs don't come up enough and feed properly so the fabric doesn't go through like it should. Have you ever had that problem with yours? I can't figure out why it's doing that. It is not that the feed dogs are lowered. Thanks so much, Linda
I am just in love with your room , my studio looks over the sea but it's nothing like yours. Your sewing table is brill and I am hoping my Son will make something similar to house my Bernina 770 , I have the acrylic extension table but I love the idea of dropping down level with top of the table. Thank you so much for the info in all your you tubes, I shall stay tuned in.😀Love from Wales Uk.
Hello Margaret!I have so enjoyed watching the tour of your sewing room. I just fell in love with the scrap-thread catcher that hangs next to your sewing machine. Do you have a pattern for it? Or can you tell me where to purchase it? (I have a cat that likes to eat thread!!!) Thanks for the great videos of the studio. I will be watching.Debbie
Well thank you so much Margret for taking the time to explain to great detail all the ins and out of your personnel space fantastic I'm so jealous ,Your so organised Can I ask you where I could purchase the box of threads from the garden ones they are beautiful thanks again sandra
If you ever decide you want a longer table, why not just turn the one you have into a drop leaf table? That way you'd have the table length when you need it and then be able to put it down when not in use leaving you your floor space.
Thank you so much for the idea to inset the acrylic extension table for your sewing machine into the top of your new sewing table. I would hate to lose the space under my extension table because that is where I tuck my container for sewing machine feet and other items I use most frequently. I'll add that idea to my wishlist. Thanks again, Kris
there are guy here in at the fairground flea market here in Nashville tn that hand mades those seam ripper handles he makes them from trees. I have a few of them I love them. you can google hand made seamrippers and you will find some more people who makes them.
+Tetelestai Creations I'm not certain where I originally got it but I found a PDF of one for you on line. I'm not certain if this link will work or not, if it doesn't do a google search of 'Bernina Foot Guide' and it should sow a PDF from Bernina. https://www.bernina.com/en-CA/Experience-CA/Sewing/Serger-projects/USA-ca/Accessories-ca/FeetReferenceGuide/Bernina-QuickGuideToFeet-en
Hi, Margaret! Just subscribed to your channel. :D So happy I found you and I'm looking forward to getting caught up with your channel and learning from you. That is the greatest sewing table I've seen. Love how large it is and how the machine is dropped so that the extension table is level with the top of the larger table. Your chairs look so comfy. Do you remember where you bought them? I'd love to get one for my room. My back does not love the chair I use now! LOL Great idea about the paint cards! TFS! xoxoJanet
+Janet H Thank you for subscribing! I purchased the chairs from a quilt shop going out of business. I'm not home right now but I'll try to remember to look on the bottom of them to see if there is a name. I believe the table top is 4' X 5' but again I'm traveling right now so I can't measure it. At so,e point in the video I believe I gave the size of it, I know we cut it out of a 4 X 8 sheet of plywood. Thanks so much for watching!!
+MSMAGNOLIA1961 My husband and I were just joking about the fact that I'm still not completely settled in, he told me not to stress about it because it hasn't been a year yet! I've been in the midst of a huge mess the last couple of days trying to get fabric settled from my 'old' sewing room! WOW I never realized how much I had! Thanks for watching!
Now, that I have watched the rest of your video, just wanted to say I love it and great idea on your table and the binding bag you made looks awesome great job. Just a note of encouragement today for you = you do very great work and I love the fact (as I am ) that you are very picky about every little part of the process. I believe it makes the end result spectacular. ty for your videos Margaret.
+Sonya Rosamond Thank you so very much! I'm not certain which part of sewing/quilting I like the most, the process or the finished product. Honestly I think many times it's the process because I so enjoy the steps, it's like savoring a great cup of coffee!! Thanks so much for watching!!
Love the video about the sewing table. Love love the cabinets with drawers and I use the bobbin case by Dritz and find it especially useful when I go on retreats and I can load up on bobbins and they are kept nicely in the case.
Hi again Margaret just wanted to ask a quick question about your small spools of aurifil thread. I was curious if you knew about how many of those a person would need for free motioning a quilt approx. 52x65 I have only bought the larger spools but this weekend I ran into a problem where they were out of the color I needed but had it in the small spools but I thought that it didnt look like much thread at all but I know that could be misleading. So, if you could help that would be great if not ty for reading this comment anyway. Have a blessed day!
Sonya, I'm not certain how much thread it would take to quilt that size quilt. I use 3,000 yard spools of thread on my long arm and so I really don't know. The Auriful large spool is 1422 yards and the smaller spool is 422 yards. I found this guide on Superior Threads website, possibly this will help: http://www.superiorthreads.com/education/how-much-thread-does-it-take/. According to this I would guess 800 yards. Hope this helps! Happy quilting!!
+Tressie Carter I bought them at a local store but I was able to find some on Amazon for you! Search 'Velcro One Strap' and you will see them. They are shown in primary colors but if you go into the link you can find them also in pastels. Thanks for watching!!
Loved your sewing area!! I finally convinced myself to get rid of the bed in our spare room and make that my sewing room. Although it won't happen until late spring, my daughter is taking the bed, but doesn't have room for it. You have given me a million of ideas. I'm sure I'll be emailing you when the time comes. I'm excited to see your cutting area. I have an idea for mine, but want to see what you've done with yours. Thanks for sharing!!
Happy Valentine's Day Ms. Margaret!!! ❤️
Thank you for another wonderful video Margaret. I enjoy them so very much and always look forward to catching up with you and your news. You have been a massive inspiration and influence on my quilting and sewing, thank you so much! Sending you lots of best wishes from England too :) xx
I get the best ideas from you! Oh, to sit and sew and not look at the wall would certainly be a treat, but with a 10x10 room that also houses all my other Art medias I guess I'll have to continue looking at the walls. But I plan to talk to my handy husband about recessing my machine into the table. It was nice to see Reena working hard in the studio. I didn't care for the Dritz bobbin holder box, sent them to my daughter though and she loves them. I bought round silicone donuts to put them in. Thanks for all the great ideas.
Oh also I bought my seam ripper with a plastic handle (He carries handmade wood handle as well) at https://www.etsy.com/shop/RossHandcraftedPens?ref=search_shop_redirect there are quite a few shop owners who make them there.
Your studio is absolutely beautiful, love the layout and sewing table set up. I would love to see a video on the binding bag. Thanks for the tip on the paint chips , great way to pull colors together with confidence.
Everything looks great! I have those same drawers so you have given me lots of ideas on sorting everything. Oh and I agree on that seam ripper. It would be perfect if the cap fit on the back end. I am always misplacing it.

Hi, my name is Ross Williams . Let me share a personal story with you. Back in 2007, I held an excellent position at a large IT company with a nice monthly salary. By 2008, the great recession hit. The company ran into financial problems and was forced to lay off over 50% of its staff. Unfortunately for me, I was included.
So there I was stranded, unemployed, with all the bills to pay and a family to support. Where I lived, such jobs werent easy to come by. So I decided to do a little research. I spent many sleepless nights on the web just searching for something to do, anything that could help support me and my family. I just wanted a way to make money, and not lose it, as I soon found to be the case with numerous internet scams.
Just like you, I often stumbled upon all types of web sites offering me some money matrix scheme, promising me all the money in the world. Yeah, right! From stuffing envelopes, Multi Level Marketing, High Yield Investment Programs, to selling all types of useless products. You name it, Ive been there, done that.
Finally, I came across something that worked.
Online advertising has skyrocketed over the past few years. In 2015, companies spent close to $50 billion advertising online. That figure is expected to increase substantially in 2016. What does this mean for you? A lot more money could be going into your bank account this year. Thats IF you take advantage of this secret system.
Companies worldwide are desperately searching for people just like you to type up their ads and post them online, and theyll pay you nicely in return. Its a win-win situation. They get more customers, you get paid. Its as simple as that. These companies have cash, LOTS of it and theyre eager to share it with you. All types of individuals around the world are using this system to make more money than they ever could working in a boring, dead-end job. You can work part-time or full-time, its all up to you.
