I did not know what to expect of St. Petersburg, Russia - it is simply an amazing city. It is filled with incredible architecture and many, many wonderful things to see. This morning we went to Peter´s palace - The city is clearly in transition with restoration going on every where. First I want to share a few photos of the palace - unfortunately, no flash photography. But take my word for it - they had way too much money and knew how to spend it. Up next - the "garden".
Every now and then something happens in the quilting/sewing world that is ground breaking and awesome. Bernina has just introduced their new 8 series, luxury sewing machines. Many of you watched the unveiling of it live from Kansas City. TQS has been given the wonderful opportunity to share with our community The Making of the 8. This fantastic short documentary will enlighten you and set you on the edge of your seat. If you missed the live webcast, or if you want to know more about the Bernina 830, go here.
TQS is grateful to Bernina for being a visionary in the sewing industry worldwide. Bernia saw Alex, Ricky, Justin, and John´s vision for TQS and without them TQS would not have gotten off the ground. Now, Bernina has listened to you again. They spent six years developing a machine that will, according to Ricky, "change the world." Click below and watch now - The Making of the 8.
Honestly - I did not know what to expect at this port. We were 100% charmed to death. The "old town" dates back in architecture to the 1200´s. The cobblestone streets were bumpy at best and sensible shoes were in order. The town is known for textiles which was a plus beyond plus!!! In addition, the locals get into the scene and transport the tourists back in time. This town knocked my socks off and I am SO glad we had the opportunity to experience it´s unique charm. BTW - check out the people tower - it was awesome!!!
Here we grow again!! Horn of America, makers of quality sewing cabinets, tables, furniture and accessories, has joined TQS as our newest Site Sponsor. When Bernina chose to work with a company to develop and produce their new Bernina sewing cabinet for the Bernina 8 Series, they went to the best...Horn of America.
