Oh, dear. I hope Bernina is still sponsoring TQS! Although there were no ads, there was a Q20 on the set, so I take that as a good sign.

So if there are no Bernina ads does that mean that Bernina is no longer sponsoring the show?

This and all the other shows are great. Great to be exposed to different artists and ideas...a nice blend of art and traditional quilts. Thank you for all you do!

It’s really nice to have the Bernita commercials gone! Thank you!

Loved the show. Does Libby divide the tea bag into two pieces after emptying the tea or uses it as a single piece? If she does use it as a whole do you need to fuse it to itself and then to the foundation fabric?

Yep— no ads— I have them memorized because Bernina hasn’t made new ads in at least five years— even though they’ve changed some of their machines.
