Further Adventures with Sewing Machines…

Well! So there I was the proud owner of one Bernina Minimatic…and now
I’ m in machine/ménage a trois! Let me explain…

Anyone ‘stitchy’ around here probably knows about this place but I’ve just found it today – North East Sewing Machines

It’s an Aladdin’s Cave of retro, vintage and modern sewing machines, all serviced and ready to go – from Singers to Brothers and yes, Berninas.
Just look at this Italian number- perfect for stitching those Madmen Frocks!

Or this Adlerette – never heard of that make before but look at those curves!

I spent ages looking and trying before coming back with this one…now I really must get back to selling work not emptying the kitty!

And best of all, the shop services and repairs all these machines too!
It is a great place and if you happen to need a bit of DIY stuff, they sell all sorts!

I am a professional textile artist specializing in Appliqué and Free Motion machine stitching. In order to create a unique colour palette, I hand dye my own fabrics and then use these to create the landscapes and coastal scenes recorded in my sketchbook. I often incorporate recycled or vintage fabrics in my work - they add meaning to the story the work is telling. I love being so close to the Northumbrian coast and countryside and I especially like taking time walk and draw these stunning landscapes
