Welmoed's Craft Corner


Welcome to my sewing room!

I love to sew, and have a Viking Designer 1, a Viking #1+ home embroidery/sewing machine, a Bernina 2000DE serger and a Janome CP1000 coverstitch machine. I also have a Juki DDL5550N-7 industrial straight stitch machine and a U.S. Blindstitch industrial blind hemmer. My latest addition to the machine collection is a Juki MO2516 Industrial 5-thread serger. I make clothing for myself and my family, and have a business sewing custom window treatments.

 What's New in the Sewing Room

New Projects are on the Blog!

Rather than update this website with new pictures, I have decided to transition to a blog to show my projects. I'll keep all the existing files and pictures available on this site, but new things will only be posted to the blog.

Visit My New Blog!
