Coming Soon to Kalamazoo Sewing Center!

Husqvarna/Viking is rolling out a new machine soon---the Designer Ruby Deluxe. This new Ruby is sure to please with completely new features to make all sorts of sewing easier, allowing you to spend more time creating.

This new machine has a newly engineered in Sweden Deluxe Stitch System. This new feature controls and adjusts bobbin and top threads so that your sewing is perfect and professional even with sheer fabrics and even when using those sometimes pesky metallic threads.

The new Designer Ruby Deluxe has features that you would expect on one of the top of the line Husqvarna/Viking machines like a large sewing and embroidery area---great when you have a large quilt and super when embroidering---it comes with 2 hoops 120x120mm and 360x200mm.  It has nearly 10 amazing inches to the right of the needle! 

And when creating that embroidery the Designer Ruby Deluxe actually allows you to resize your design in your machine and adjusts the stitches automatically for you. How handy is that? You can also reposition, change colors, and make adjustments easily and right on your screen. And this machine will help you re-hoop and position large designs too.

The bright color touch screen allows you to navigate through over 1000 available stitches, including 7mm width, sideways sewing, and 6 built in sewing fonts.

The Exclusive Sensor System adjusts the foot pressure on your fabric and helps the feed of even the most delicate fabrics through the Designer Ruby Deluxe.

The Husqvarna/Viking folks have created a whole trunk show of items created with the Designer Ruby Deluxe. The projects are centered around a dream wedding---wedding gown with embroidery design on top of tulle using metallic thread to make the bride shine, bridesmaid dress, ring bearers pillow,  a tiny dress for the flower girl.   

And for an heirloom for the bride and groom to pull out every anniversary; a flag streamer for the back of the car to make memories of that special day last throughout the years.

Notionable Notion


Wouldn't these eye glass cases make great holiday gifts? And they're so fast and easy and done right in the hoop. Make them in all sorts of colors, add the cute designs to personalize for all those folks on your list who are difficult to buy for.

Who couldn't use an eye glass case for that pair of reading glasses, sunglasses, or even some normal sized safety glasses?

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Just about everyone has been touched by a life that has been affected by Breast Cancer. It's hard to know what to say and you feel so hopeless when all you want to do is help. Here are some projects from around the internet that you can sew and give some comfort to someone who could use a little something just to make it through to the next hour, the next day, the next five years.

So let's go get our breast exams and let's get behind those whose lives are touched by this disease:

  •  Sew a comfort pillow for a cancer patient. This pillow fits around the shoulder to keep the arm from resting on delicate sore areas. The pattern comes with this embroidery design and is currently free, although you do have to create an account to download. The pillow pattern is a downloadable PDF. Click on the picture for more info. 

  • I thought this was a great idea---a prayer pillow. Tuck a thoughtful note, prayer, or blessing in the pocket of this tiny heart.

  • A lovely paper pieced quilt block perfect in pink---Click the picture to get to the pattern:
