The Sewing Machines:
Sewing machines today are high tech for sure! They are computers within a sewing machine!
The piecing and top quilt of all my t-shirt quilts are made with an industrial strength Brother sewing machine. This machine can sew up to 1500 stitches per minute! It is a favorite of mine.
This Brother embroidery machine does all of my embroidery. It produces beautiful lettering in 6 different fonts and various sizes.
This machine long arm quilts each one of my quilts. It produces beautiful stitching through out the quilts.
This machine is never very far from me in my shop! It was my mother's machine. It is a Singer from the 1930's and was refurbished by my father.
With the use of digital photography and photo editing software such as Photoshop, I have been able to create truly custom graphics! Recently, a customer inquired if I could make some t-shirts with the design, shown on the left. This design was used on her wedding invitation!
An additional design was created. This new design really gave the shirts some extra style. These 2 designs were screen printed on 6 pastel shirts matching the wedding colors.
The center block was cream-just like their invitation!
