How great to have a grandmother like Kerstin!

Before jumping into the projects of this week, I am now very happy to be able to show you a sneak peek of the new HUSQVARNA VIKING® sewing and embroidery machine and now you can even see some small parts of the dress I talked about last week. Click here to have a look >>

Kerstin is one of our sewing experts in the sewing studio here at the office in Huskvarna creating many of our sewing projects for machine launches. Kerstin has a loving grandson she usually picks up once a week and they have a cosy afternoon together. Kerstin always makes pancakes for Oscar when she has picked him up, and I am sure that he loves to be with his grandmother.

Last week, Kerstin started to teach Oscar how to sew! With time he will be very skilled, and on top of his private lessons with Grand Mother, he will be going to take textile lessons in school. Sewing will be a new exciting experience. As you can see in the pictures, Oscar is doing fantastic. He practiced sewing on several of our sewing machines. He learned how to embroider and he also tried our overlock machines.

Oscar and Kerstin created the most fantastic pillow with an embroidery of a red sports car.  This car is a design from the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Design Collection #159 called “Wheels for Everyone”.

Inserting the zipper was done by using the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Narrow Zipper Foot, (4125657-45). You can see in the pictures how Kerstin taught Oscar how to pin the zipper in place before sewing. In the Accessory Catalogue you can find instructions on how to use the foot on page 20.

Thanks Oscar and Kerstin for sharing your sewing. I can’t wait to see what will come next!

My sewing will be displayed later, as it is still a secret (a fantastic and innovative new embroidery collection from HUSQVARNA VIKING®!). I have taken pictures and will share them with all of you in August when the embroideries are available. Until then I will be sewing in Greece with my mother in law. We gave her a HUSQVARNA VIKING® sewing machine for her 70th birthday, and let me tell you, she has never ever been happier about a present before. It will also be useful for me as I have started plenty of sewing projects to be able to have some new outfits for my trip to US in July.

I will be back with a new update later in July just before I will travel to the US and I wish you all a fantastic “sewing” during this summer!

Relax and have fun!
