Through the Needle, a Bernina publication, current issue #34 June/July. Muna Elias wrote an article about the Kimono, on the cover, that was used in the theater production of Madame Butterfly for a Bay Area company. She did ALL the thread painting using metallic thread on my 200's and 730's Bernina. Muna has over 400 hours of free motion work on just this piece. At the end of the article she gives some helpful hint when trying out free motion quilting.
