How to Do Precision Piecing with Shelley and Bernie Tobisch
(Show 2506) Shelley Tobisch, a quilter for twenty years, and Bernie Tobisch, who has a forty-three career as a sewing machine tech, have combined efforts to create Acorn Easy Precision Piecing. They offer students a wealth of knowledge when it comes to achieving perfection in their piecing results. They created Seam Align Glue, Easy Press Solution, Easy Press Pen, and the Block Builder Base. Having serviced over 50,000 machines, Bernie walks The Quilt Show through tips to help resolve issues that all quilters face, like tension, tilting stitches, and the proper needle for the job. Bernie and Shelley demo the special features of the Block Builder Base, a portable patchwork block base developed to keep pieces in place and aid in assembly without shifting when it comes time to move from the cutting area to sewing. Bernie and Shelley cap off the show by talking about the many wonderful years they spent living on a boat.
