It’s Sew Easy TV: Episode 708

Another free episode of It’s Sew Easy is online this week!  Starting at noon on Friday, November 14, episode 708 will run for 7 days.  Pop on over to see how I make an on-trend infinity scarf from a t-shirt using embroidery on the Brother Quattro® 3 NV6750ISE 708-1 PIC 1


I stitched a jumbo scalloped lace design on a comfy knit mesh.  You’ll learn the hooping techniques and stabilizer options. Then, see how easy it is to convert the Quattro® 3 NV6750 from embroidery to sewing by simply changing the foot and pressing a button on the screen. ISE 708-1 PIC 2


You’ll also see my good friend Joanne Banko on this episode.  ISE 708-2 PIC 1

Joanne shares the how-to for making a fashionable sheer wrap.  Joanne shares an excellent tip on how to use the left needle position to prevent a sheer fabric from being pulled below the stitch plate.  She then shows how to sew the sheer fabric on the Quattro® 3 NV6750 using the straight stitch plate.

Be sure and tune in this Friday at noon for episode 708 – free for 7 days! Click here to bookmark the page.
