MAY QESS CLUB

For this QESS Club I will show you a quick and fun Redworkembroidery design by Bird Brain Designs using linin and Madeira Frosted Matte Thread.   Then I will show you the latest foot from Babylock, their Quilt Binding Foot, along with a seam guide to give you a perfect binding.   Then I will break out one of my favorite attachments, the ¾ inch belt loop binder, and show you how to use it with the cover stitch or your regular sewing machine!!  

Greetings friends!
     Hope everyone is doing well under these most unprecedented circumstances.  I am writing to inform you of our situation here at the shop.  No doubt you have received many of these updates from many businesses.  Well, we here at Bergers are being as vigilant cleaning and disinfecting like everyone else.  We will remain open for business as usual as long as we are permitted to do so.  We are however going to postpone our QESS club and classes  going forward until further notice.  
Gail our resident instructor will be doing some "Facebook Live" instruction for all to keep up your skills and interest!  If there is anything I can do for you please let me know.  We are Americans we will get through this!  The Marines have a saying; Improvise, adapt, overcome.  This is what we shall do together!  God bless, and take care.
All the best,
Raymond Berger
