We Learned a Lot!
Thanks to sewing expert Katrina Walker, the Highland Sewing Center's Husqvarna Viking Toolin' Around Two event was a success. Everyone went home inspired and full of tools and ideas to make sewing more fun and easy.
Katrina talked about all her favorite tools and the tips that she has picked up during her years of working in the garment and textile business. All eyes were on the big screen as the Interchangeable Dual Feed Foot was demonstrated. She dazzled us with her haute couture dress fashioned with prairie points. She demonstrated tips and tools to sew slippery fabrics like silks. And she showed us how to add special details to our sewing to make every garment special.
Thanks to Highland manager, Joan, lunch was delicious. And we spent the afternoon getting tips on embroidery, stabilizers, and sheep.
Katrina advised us to be sure that we set up our machines to sew the way we want to sew. Today's machines have many features that can be set up your way. She says "Don't let your sewing machine boss you around---you be the boss and set it up your way!" And when you buy a machine from us we'll give you a class to show you how.
Come see us today!
