TIPS FOR FREE-MOTION BOBBIN WORK. April 23, 2014, WeAllSew Quilt artist Teri Lucas shares tips for stitching free-motion bobbin work. Visit Teri at terificreations.wordpress.com. Quilters are special indeed. We like to break the rules. And we have teachers that help us learn how to break the rules. (Just in case you‘re wondering, that would be me.) To quote one of my students, “Free-motion machine quilting breaks all the rules of sewing!”
If you want to use yarn, decorative thread, wool or ribbons as your under-thread, you can do so with the help of a bobbinwork bobbin case. This enables your BERNINA sewing machine to use threads or yarns that cannot be threaded through the needle. Depending on the model, you should use either a special bobbin case or an adapted standard bobbin case. Our video tutorial shows you how you can find the right case for your BERNINA machine, how to spool your desired yarn and achieve great effects with it.
Lots of useful tips make it easier for you to use the accessories and illustrate what to look out for when using this technique. As a result, even free-motion embroidery is possible using the BERNINA stitch regulator (BSR). Our video will show you how. You can of course also use decorative stitches with this technique to create your ideal textiles with decorative yarn or ribbons. Bobbinwork opens up a wide range of possibilities for ambitious seamstresses.
