Training on Embroidery Software

Last Weekend the first training on BERNINA embroidery software took place.

A long time I was searching for the perfect place, that’s why the courses only took place at Stoffekontor in Leipzig. But I wanted to held courses in South Germany as well.

I found this wonderful place owned by a friend who is using this for photographers courses.

Now me too can use this place for Embroidery software courses.

Have look at the great living kitchen, what a place to spend the breaks.


ll the catering is done by a sewing friend of mine, Susanne.

Look like beautiful the house is decorated.

The training room has everything I need for my courses

  • a powerful projector
  • a big screen
  • place enough for each trainee
  • daylight

In summary: The perfect place!

Although the course was announced on short notice we had 7 participants, from the north (sea) to Swabia and from Switzerland.

The number of participants should be from 6 to 10 so it was perfect..

Lunch with Quiche, summer salad and raspberry Tiramisu.

We had a lot of time for talks.

We all enjoyed these 2 days. Some of the participants I will see in October for the Advanced training course.

And I already got feedback and snapshots of first own projects from the participants.

The trainings are held in German, I am sorry about this, but my English is not that good for a live course.

The next base course is scheduled for June, the first Advanced course for October.

More details can be found here: Grundlagenkurs und des Aufbaukurses.

Wonderful Autumn

Here I’m back again. Shame on me, I enjoyed this great summer so much and did not waste any thought on staying at the desk or computer.

And the last 3 weeks were the top of this summer: 3 weeks holiday, 3 weeks doing nothing serious, 3 weeks enjoying life. As the other years we spent a week at the Baltic Sea (although the travel here is quite long). The fresh air, the sea, the beach are gorgeous. Only walking and biking. Have you ever been cycling near the cliff line of isle Rügen?


The 2 other weeks we spent at home. We have the Bavarian Forest, the river Altmühl and Upper Bavaria right infront of the house. So we spent a lot of time with the best weather on motobike. And on our garden terace, being lazy, or doing BBQ, had some glasses of Rosé. What a holiday.

And now we are back and I promise to be more regularly on the Blog.

Let’s start with a new Autumn decoration. I started to prepare the house for autumn last week. Now it is the time for all the pumpkins, felt leaves and scarecrows.

And it happen to me that I was missing something special in my autumn box, so on sunday I started to sew the two leaves and the pumpkin.


Of course I was embroidering too, this new file:


This is a silhouettes file collection. But it is not a flat motive like you probably see a lot these days. They come with a lot of details, tone in tone. Very alive.

Can you see this at the mushrooms?stickbaer-scherenschnitte-herbst-tati-2

The felt base I wrapped around a jar, added a bell and a felt oak leave.

This gave me in a little time and with low effort a nice candle glass.stickbaer-scherenschnitte-herbst-tati-3

Here are some mugrugs and another candle cover.

On the backside you close the felt ring with a bow. So you can use it later for other size glasses too.stickbaer-scherenschnitte-herbst-tati-8 stickbaer-scherenschnitte-herbst-tati-9

All embroidery motifs I used for my new autumn deco you can find in our latest embroidery file “Autumn in Silhouettes”:


In no time you embroider all 12 motifs. No color change! But absolutely, try a multi color or glitter thread, especially for the maple leaf and the apple, this is looking magic.

From today on you can get the file in our Stickbaer Shop.

And now, enjoy the weekend, with a lot of late summer, early autumn sun!
