Trailer


Alex and Ricky are introduced to Shelley Scott-Tobisch and Bernie Tobisch of Easy Precision Piecing, creators of the Acorn Easy Precision Piecing Seam Align Glue, Easy Press Solution, Easy Press Pen, and the Block Builder Base. Shelley has been quilting for twenty years, while Bernie has had a forty-three year career as a sewing machine tech. Combined, they offer students a wealth of knowledge when it comes to achieving perfection in their piecing results. Having serviced over 50,000 machines, Bernie walks TQS through tips to help resolve issues that all quilters face, like tension, tilting stitches, and the proper needle for the job.

Then, Bernie and Shelley talk about 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.

Great show! I just ordered Shelley's book. I am hoping that the pattern for that stunning delectable mountains quilt, Song of Friendship," in the background is included. But, if it isn't, can anyone point me to a source? I can reconstruct it but would prefer not to :-) TIA

I finally got to see the last half of this show and I wonder if there is a way to get the machine information from Bernie Tobisch on line so that I can have it always n hand. I live in Australia and the cost is really high but having something like that that I can print out would help me a lot as I am no where near a town that I can just run to the mechanic everything
I need some information. I just love this show and many others too. I am going from season one and now have got to season 5. I love them all.

I learned so much about precision piecing techniques and how my sewing machine should operate between tension, thread and needles. Thanks for a great show!

This was one of the MOST informative shows I have ever seen as far as technique! I absolutely learned SO much & I have been sewing for 60 years! I wasn't excited at first but SO happy I watched! The couple made things so clear & easy to understand. Hope to see them at QF here in Houston in a couple of months. Will most definitely be purchasing their products! Thank you so much to all involved!
