May I introduce you to Crystalworks? This tool creates a stencil for precise crystal placement. Crystals fill the holes and are then "gathered" onto an adhesive film. Your iron sets the crystals onto your project! Available for the BERNINA 580/750/780/830. Put some sparkle in your world!

May 16 we invite you to try the crystalwork, cutwork and paintwork tools! It's our Super Sew Day with Sue, and you are invited! Call 919-782-2945 to sign up! 10:45 and 1:45. A very eventful day at our store!
