So I dug out a box from the attic and there it was.
This says Spiral Stitcher on the instructions. It was made by Janome and is a slightly different shape to the one in the article by Val Campbell-Harding which is in the taster issue of WOW.
But if you look at the examples they give in the instructions it obviously does the same.
Maybe this version is older/younger than the one VCH used. This is possibly about 18 years old.
Dale Rollerson (Downunderdale) is doing some great work with this attachment at the moment and Maggie Grey is showing work made with it on her blog too.
There is an article here which shows you how to make circles without using this attachment, but obviously they are not very decorative.
This gadget looks like it has lots of possibilities - now you know what I will be doing this weekend!
And speaking of gadgets, does anyone know what this is?
Something else I found in the same box. It was in a little plastic bag with £6.95 on it - and thats it!
It has NEWEY stamped on the front and Clover Japan on the back.
There is an opening in each end. It is just over 2" long and just over 1" wide at the widest point.
Any ideas anyone?
Last week for freebies for a little while. These fabrics were purchased sometime ago when I was taking part in a Theatre Costume course. There is about 1/2 metre of each one. Along with a couple of unused bits for scrapbookers. Same as before, email or comment if you would like to go in the draw.
And if you win, I would just love to see what you do with these fabrics!
They are tutorials for some of the work I have been doing recently with the embellisher. I still haven't managed to upload the one for the torn strip spine, the file was too large. I hope to get that on there this weekend.
It takes a while for the files to load the first time you click on them - so please be patient, you know good things are worth waiting for :)
