Show 2506: Shelley Scott-Tobisch / Bernie Tobisch

Featuring: Shelley Scott-Tobisch / Bernie Tobisch

Posts On: September 8, 2019

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.

I’m curious about the Organ needles. What type and size was she using?

Loved this show - so much information!
Where can I buy Bernie's book "You and Your Sewing Machine"?

I so enjoyed this show ... new tools are always a delight to see. I tried the Tobisch's Seam Align and Precision Piecing ... it was a little bit difficult to squeeze the Seam Align from the "bottle" but after a few squeezes it worked beautifully ... no more pins for me ... and they were right ... it stabilized my pieces like not other tool has done. I love this product ... will buy lots of it in the future. Thank you

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
