Drawing on the success from it’s first outing last year in New York, Maker Faire was back and double the fun this past weekend at the New York Hall of Science in Queens! We were there with our BERNINA Series 3 machines, gorgeous Renaissance Ribbons and custom printed Spoonflower fabric stitching up our famous Make + Take drawstring bags.

As if that wasn’t enough to keep our booth visitors busy, we also brought along our friends from Blumenthal Lansing who supplied endless amounts of eye-catching buttons for our button project station. Wanna see more of our Make-tastic adventures? Scroll through to check out all the pictures from our weekend at New York Maker Faire!

How adorable is this brother/sister duo? Gotta start ’em sewing young.

People went crazy for our button projects! Thanks to Blumenthal Lansing for all the wonderful materials.
