*STORY OF A GOOD SEWING CHAIR

POST



*This was my sewing machine in college (I attended /Ricks College 1992-1994 - now called BYU-Idaho). I used it in most of my classes and quickly grew to love it. It made me fall in love with BERNINA which is now my very favorite brand of sewing machine - far and above the rest. I recommend it to everyone.

*Quick story: In the Clothing & Textiles programs at Ricks College BYU-I, they would update all the sewing lab machines every two years. The "older ones" would go to auction. All the machines were numbered and I requested mine at the auction and bought it for $400 - a STEAL for a $2000 at-the-time Bernina. Still works beautifully I might add.




*I believe this machine was my great-grandmother's. Correction: My aunt got that one, but my parents bought one similar (from the same time period as my great grandmother's) at a "junk show" in Calgary, Alberta when I was a baby. My dad refinished it and even had it running hooked up to the treadle at one point. It had been a nightstand in my room as a little girl, too. My mother also used this cabinet to house her 1960s Singer machine - the older Singers were the best! That was the machine I learned on when I was very small. (She hooked up the electricity though). This machine and cabinet have been in my life a long time and I am grateful to my mother for making sure I got it to have in my home.
*I love all things antique - lots of heritage. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE Daisies. Especially the white Shasta variety.




*This here is my current Bernina, top of the line in 2001 (I will have to get my fact-checker on that year...). Bernina Artista 180E. The E is for Embroidery. Which became a new hobby and added feature to my designs. Love this machine {{heart}}.




*I collect thimbles when I go to cool places - these are from Hawaii, Las Vegas and Disneyland.
*My business card.




*I got my Bachelors Degree of the Arts in 1997, from BYU-Provo. Major: Fashion Design & Apparel Production, Emphasis: Costume.
*My Mission Statement.




*I love me a good thread wall.




*My Color Wheels. I used to teach classes on color and how to use it and why it works the way it does. Love colors. Favorites right now are purple and green. Wait a minute, these have always been my favorites, in one shade or another.




*These daisies are painted on my walls, kind of an homage to vintage wallpaper. With a modern twist.
*DREAM CREATIVELY




*What sewing studio would be complete without a valance made from sheers, ribbons and embroideries?



*I won this trophy for "Best Costume" when my family and I were The Cat In The Hat & Things 1 thru 6, and of course the Thing Keeper
*The Funny Frog has a story: My mother used to drag us kids to craft fairs and bazaars and antique stores and flea markets all the time. Well, the first one that I remember being meaningful was where my mom purchased this froggy for me to remember our trip. He spoke to us in ways we are still learning about, if that is possible for a silly frog to do. Froggy taught us to always look at something and try to figure out how to make it yourself; that secondary colors are very cool; that it's OK to be kooky sometimes; and to keep on hangin' on even when it's tough. Thanks Mom.
