Pre-Owned BERNINAS

Categories: Uncategorized.

Modern Domestic is always pleased to accept trade-in machines to put towards the purchase of a new BERNINA. Very rarely do we see BERNINA machines traded in as most people can’t seem to part with their dear old friends and would rather pass them down to their children or new sewist friends. At the moment, we have three pre-owned BERNINA’s! This has never happened. We get calls all the time to see if we have pre-owned BERNINA’s and usually the answer is no. — READ MORE —

Home Sewn Weekend special guest Susan Beal

Categories: Home Sewn Weekend.

Our first of morning of Home Sewn Weekend will include a special visit with craft writer, Susan Beal. Her newest book, Hand-Stitched Home, features sewing projects of all types and skill levels sewn with luscious Pendleton wool. Many projects were created by Susan along with several Portland designers including multiple MD staff members, including Lupine, Michelle Freedman, and Meredith. Think quilting, garments, bags, pillows and more! Susan will be joining us for a trunk show and book signing as attendants get their first sewing project underway–a lightweight Pendleton and Double Gauze cowl with a button closure. Susan is an exciting designer and genuine person as you can see by her gracious interview below. Everyone is sure to be inspired for fall wool sewing afterward!

We’d like to extend a warm welcome to Lizzy House who will be joining us for our first ever Home Sewn Weekend this October. Lizzy will be teaching a few workshops over the weekend, including her Meadow Quilt, which is only available as a workshop. She has also given us permission (and sketches!) to digitize for a one-of-a-kind embroidery project that is a top secret surprise! We asked Lizzy to answer a few questions for us and she graciously took some time out of her busy schedule to answer them.
