On behalf of the entire BERNINA team and all BERNINA bloggers, I wish you a Merry Christmas! Enjoy the time with your loved ones, have a good New Year and stay creative.
Behind the 24th door of our Advent calendar there is no tutorial and no sewing inspiration. Instead, we want to say thank you for your loyalty – with a video and a raffle where you can win a great prize.
The secret adventures of BERNINA presser feet
First the video… Do you remember the video with which we presented the new accessory case in the middle of the year? On Youtube you can watch it under the following link: Video accessory case.
In our opinion, the secret stars of this video are the presser feet, which were animated using stop-motion technology. Don’t you think they look incredibly likeable and lively? When we decided to produce a Christmas video, we remembered the animated presser feet and decided to shoot a sequel. Here it is:
What do presser feet and needle pillows do when they are not observed? The video gives the answer. Be sure to watch the last few seconds! There you can see what presser feet do when it gets dark :-).
I can tell you that my office colleagues Alice Marolf and Corinna Schreiber and I have become experts in moving presser feet during the video production. Because the shooting took place at the beginning of November and Steckborn is not exactly snow-sure at this time of year, the scenery had to be snow-covered. Partly we used soda and shaving foam for this. That was almost two months ago, and in the meantime many mandarins have been peeled in our office. Nevertheless, I believe that you can still smell the shaving foam today!
All three of us enjoy our work like small children. I hope you feel the same way!
Raffle: Accessories case and presser feet set
Because this blog article marks the end of our Advent calendar and because we want to make you happy, we are giving away an accessory case with five BERNINA presser feet of your choice.
How to participate in the raffle:
State in the comments section below that you want to participate in the raffle. Please also tell us in your comment what you want to use the five feet for.
Or send us ideas for a next presser feet video in stop-motion technique. I think the little Christmas story above cannot be the last presser feet adventure yet.
You can post your comment until 6 January 2020. The raffle will take place in the same week.
You’re not (yet) sewing with BERNINA? Take part in the raffle anyway! If the lottery is yours, you probably know a friend with a BERNINA sewing machine who would be delighted to receive a gift. Or you could use the prize as an inspiration to switch to BERNINA and then have a nice base of presser feet.
Everything stored safely!
The BERNINA accessory case stores up to 43 presser feet and other accessories so you can keep all your important sewing aids in one place. With its soft padding and well secured, the accessories can be taken along on trips at any time. The contents of the case consist of three hard foam inserts, which you can use or leave out if necessary (for example if you need storage space for fabric and threads).
That leaves me only two things to say: Good luck with the raffle! And: Thank you!
Most important, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the blog authors on behalf of the BERNINA team, who have worked so hard to ensure that the blog offers attractive reading material and inspiration for quilting, sewing and embroidery every day. A heartfelt “Merci” also goes to you, dear readers, for your interest in this content. Thank you for reading and writing. We look forward to your comments, project pictures, Facebook likes and Pinterest shares.
Stay and join us here in 2020!
