I went to her website and downloaded a $5 trial design and it came with templates to print out. Tried a sample stitch out of it (just thread no applique) and OMG! is her stuff ever amazing! the most be-u-ti-ful stitch out I have seen.

I am seriously considering buying her Sparkle! collection. (to be added to the I want to do that, someday, pile) :lol:

Not all of her quilts use the Go. I have the patterns for Stars and the one for the Hearts. Neither of them use the Go.

Does anyone know if you can construct Sarah's quilts WITHOUT a GO? It is horribly expensive to purchase and have sent to Switzerland and pay customs' duties and VAT with the required dies and software. I generally do not do much repetitive cutting.

I hoped you were going for the Bernina. I have a feeling that their software is useful. When you get it, I can ask you questions :D

Congratulations Lorchen on finally being able to buy your Bernina :-D I can see that Eva will be wearing embroidered dresses next year ;-)

That's awesome, Lorchen. You've finally decided to take the plunge? Good for you. I also had the most basic machine--a top of the line Elna Super--purchased in 1975. It was an awesome machine and I loved it. But I did finally upgrade 2 years ago to a Bernina 830. Now I am loving it with all it can do. Well actually I am still trying to learn all that it can do. :)

Thanks Ritzy. That's what I thought.

Lorchen, I think that you would have to use a small needle. Silk doesn't heal itself like cotton so if you put a large hole in it--it is going to stay. At least that is what I was taught when I was sewing with silks and satins. Also, if the thread is silk--it is probably thinner and the small needle would work.

I am curious. What brand are you choosing (offered)? You will come to love all the possibilities when you get over the first frustrations. I have taught myself the most of what I know and you're welcome to ask any question I could help with.

Thanks Norma! I normally match the needle to the thread (Superior makes it easy with a very comprehensive list), but I thought that in this case with silk fabrics but all the stabilizers, there might be a different solution. In the end it's all 'trial and error', but it does help if somebody else has made most of the errors already. :)

I have the feeling that I'm going to ask a lot of questions everywhere in the forum, getting on everybodys nerves, because I'm in the process of buying a machine with an embroidery module. I have safed up for years, then compared and tested machines for over a year. It's now down to two models and my local dealer has made me one of these offers that nobody would refuse, so by the beginning of September I can fetch my new baby home and start to play. After years of using a most basic machine because it was more important to finance my sons' education, this is a huge step for me.

Melly, I'm in the UK and so the products are sometimes different, but when I work with silk I put an light-weight iron-on interfacing on in order to reduce the amount of fraying. It looked like Sarah Vedeler was using something very similar.

I really enjoyed this show, so much so i've ordered some silk fabric and the matching thread set !! I've been meaning to make some cushions for my new conservatory and this has given me some insperation to "get on with it". However, I am little confused over all the different types of stabliser that were used. Can anyone explain what was used on the back of the "base" silk fabric? :?

Hi Lorchen.
I don't know which needle size Sarah Vedeler uses for silk, but my experience is that you choose for the thread, you use. The thing is that you have a lot of stabilizing stuff there already so it will work with silk. That said I choose the smallest needle that works with the thread.

Your next question is more difficult for me, because I don't know the Bernina software. That might be able to split the embroidery to smaller units, so they fit in a smaller hoop. As with everything new machine embroidery definitely has a learning curve, but you can get a lot of information on the Internet.

Hope this helps until more qualified people see your questions :D

I totally agree with you, Terry!

I actually have two questions and wonder if somebody monitors the forum and can pass the questions on:

1) When using silk fabric what needle does Sarah use?

2) Can large digitized designs that are developed for the jumbo hoop also be stitched in a smaller hoop? Not everybody can afford to buy a Bernina 830.
