Meeting in London!

January 31, 2011, Posted in SewFun! Blog by  Lena Kantis

I smile :) , love that it’s no snow in London, and the sun has been shining for several days. This week we have had a HUSQVARNA VIKING® 5D™ Embroidery Software meeting. We do have meetings on regular basis, normally as phone conferences, but once or twice a year we get together for a meeting in London or sometimes in Sweden. What we discussed is a secret; however it will be creating more joy of sewing! Just wait and see!

I got a gift, a very nice white shirt with the 5D™ logo on the back, and the cutwork lace design on the front of the shirt. I will be wearing it next week when I will be teaching the 5D Embroidery system in Copenhagen for the Danish Sewing Stars. Fun!

The logo on the back of the shirt is made by using the Multi Colorgradient fill. The feature is available in 5D Design Creator, in the HUSQVARNA VIKING ® 5D™ Professional.

If you have never ever tried any of the fantastic 5D™ embroidery software before, we have three fun and easy products for you to be able to find out how fun it is, the Inspira®Cross Stitcher, the Inspira®Monogram and Vision, and the Inspira®Family Tree.
See how beautiful embroideries you can make using them.

Next week I am sure I can share pictures from Denmark.

Happy Sewing!

We have been very glad to see so many wonderful pictures of the sewing projects that you have created. I could tell you have had lots of fun sewing and creating all of these fantastic things. Thank you all for sharing it with us and your fellow sewers by sending your pictures to HUSQVARNA VIKING® Sewers Choice. To pick the top three among all the beautiful sewing projects was a nightmare especially as I only have photos to judge from. You were all winners in my opinion as you have spent time with your sewing machines to have fun, it is great for the soul.

There are always many new projects that we are working on, things you will be seeing here during this New Year, 2011. We will continue to help you enjoy your sewing even more. This week I have to plan for a trip next week. I will be going to London and take part of a meeting. I will keep you updated next week, with pictures. I have finished a dress in a wrinkled fabric, and I made an elastic belt with the chicken feet as decoration, to wear with the new dress. I think the belt was the quickest project I have done I really long time; it only took five minutes to complete.

We have been organizing our “walk-in-closet”, with all the sewing samples and we found some beautiful material. Here are two beautiful quilts that I found. The quilts have been designed by Åsa Wettre, a Swedish textile artist and author. The red quilt is called “Nine patch with plants”, and has got small embroideries from HUSQVARNA VIKING® Design Collection#3, “Quilt & Country”. The second blue/green quilt goes by the name of “The house in the middle”, with embroideries from HUSQVARNA VIKING® Design Collection #30, “Fantasy”. Be creative and add embroideries on you quilts, choose your own favorites, it will be amazing.

See you next week from London!

Happy Sewing

Happy New ”Sewing ”Year

December 30, 2010, Posted in SewFun! Blog by  Lena Kantis

New hopes, new wishes, and a lot of new sewing inspiration are what we will look forward to for this coming year. In Sweden we have had the coldest winter in 110 years. Extremely cold weather with lots of snow, look forward to the spring with the sun and a bit less cold weather. Here is a picture of my house, lot of snow as you can see.

Anders was kind to send a picture of the boys wearing the outfits he had sewn. He says:
-“The boys love their new outfits. I must say it was an enormous satisfaction to see them get dressed with the clothing I had been sewing. They love to wear it! In my opinion, more people should try to sew their own clothes.”

 During the days off I have taken some time to read fashion magazines, and I find outfits that I like and details that can be added to the sewing that I do, I save the ideas in a little notebook. Great way to remember small details to add on my own projects. (You can also draw details in the notebook.)

Do not forget to vote for your favourite sewing project at the Sewers Choice! Gallery. Pictures of sewing projects from sewers all around the world are now live on our Sew Your Home Holiday Ready site. You can vote until January 3.

Happy New “Sewing” Year!



From All of Us, To All of You – a Merry Christmas!

December 23, 2010, Posted in SewFun! Blog by  Lena Kantis

Hope you all will have a fantastic holiday, with time to relax and enjoy time with your family and friends.

I found this beautiful mini- Christmas Tree- at the Swedish Sales company offices, simply love it! It has been decorated with a lot of hearts. The hearts all look different, with decorative stitches. Love it!

Wish you will have a time to spend with friends and family. I am very happy that my children have come home to spend some time with us. My sister and her family will come on Friday (as we celebrate Christmas Eve in Sweden), together with my parents.

During the holidays I will finish the projects that I have started. I have told myself to finish them before I start anything new.

Rasmus made a pillow case yesterday, with lettering from the 5D™ Embroidery system.

Kerstin has finished a beautiful top in a hot pink color. She has added lots of decorative stitches, and she did also add a Bobbin Lace at the bottom of the sleeves. It is from the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Design Collection #223, Bobbin Lace.
She said: “So that I can be seen!”

It’s is now time to vote in the Sewers Choice! Gallery. Pictures of sewing projects from sewers all around the world are now live on our Sew Your Home Holiday Ready site. Get inspired by sewing photos and vote for your favorite. You can vote until January 3.

Happy Sewing!
