Recently Julie Herman became a contributing editor to the Swatch & Stitch.. the blog for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. She says, “I wanted to share the word about your foot to more people since I was so happy with it. I designed a quilt around using it and filmed a video. The tutorial and video were posted today. I hope that I did you proud!”
Indeed you did, Julie! Love the quilt you designed and you did a great job on the Curve Master video. Thanks for your support!
I have put a link to the quilt in the blogroll to the right as well as a link to Julie’s video.
This blog is republished here today in order to place it in a more conveniently found location for all my new viewers.

My goal for today was to make a few videos demonstrating use of the Curve Master Presser Foot and publish them on my blog and maybe Youtube. First time videographer, first time use of my new Flip Video Camera, first time using iMovie, but I was determined to make myself Sandy B. deMille for one day. I put on fresh makeup and set the stage on on my back porch, the only spot in the house that gets northern light. Here is Curve Master Demo – Take 1. Emphasis on the “Take 1” part. Totally ignore the part where I say to “lift the two fabrics” as you should only lift the top fabric.
Watch the background more than the demo. See the pretty kitty walking in the background and reflected on the bed of the sewing machine? Baaaadddd kittty……
If you saw Curve Master Demo – Take 1, which appeared here in my blog as “Day 2 as a Blogger,” you had a good laugh and some misinformation about how to use the Curve Master. Hey, it WAS “Take 1” after all, give me a break!
Here is a better version of a demonstration. Still not perfect on the lighting and lacking a closeup view, but better than Take 1, and definitely on the right track. Hope this helps those of you asking for a demo, and stay tuned for Take 3! This one was taken in the booth at Road to California show, so it is a “live” version.
