Tech Talk

I know it doesn’t seem like we have even had summer but fall is just around the corner…so let’s “fall” back into some good habits as we are going to be inside more and sewing all the time. Please remember to change your needle every 3 bobbins. This i h will greatly improve the quality of your stitches and it helps your machine to run better. Try to think of it this way: cutting a tomato with a dull knife is difficult; it is the same as trying to pierce fabric with a dull needle. Also, if you are having difficulty sewing something you have never sewn before you may just need a different type of needle. The Sewing Palace offers needles for every type of fabric, thread, and embroidery, so make sure you have the right tool for the job. For all of you BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR) owners there is a new update to that foot and it is as easy as coming into the store and plugging your BSR foot into either the 820 or 830. These two new machines will automatically update your BSR foot…no charge or appointment needed. And once you have your BSR foot updated please take the opportunity to test drive these new machines or test drive the BSR foot on the new quilt table with the 820…very fun!

Consignment/Trade In Machines The Sewing Palace has quite an array of “Previously Loved” BERNINA machines and sergers. These are a great way to step into a Bernina at a great price.
