Happy anniversary to us!

Bild: Inspiration Issue 50

Today, we’re proud to present to you the 50th issue of inspiration, including several “golden anniversary” pages. Looking back, we’ll show you five “blast from the past” models and how we’ve adapted them to today’s modern styles. Not just fashion, but BERNINA sewing-machine technology has evolved over time. Accordingly, we’ve ­continually launched ever-more-innovative machines on the market, with more features and functions, even better accessories, and a whole slew of creative options. That’s why almost every new issue of Inspiration has been accompanied by an innovation that
takes the hard slog out of sewing, making it much more fun in the process.

In addition, we’ve given summer a column of its own, confident that our warm-weather projects will maximise your enjoyment of this glorious season. The “Ship Ahoy” theme will bring the holidays straight into your home. For those venturing further afield, though – say, to a lovely wide sandy beach, or even just to the local outdoor swimming pool – we’ve created a special beach outfit for you – light, airy and blissfully comfortable. And you’ve certainly nothing to fear from our sleight-of-hand tricks, which will help you conjure up some harmless fun and games at the seaside. Those staying put at home might fancy smartening up their surroundings with an African look. Tempted?

Rainy days are always good for sorting out cupboards and wardrobes, we find. Our garment bags and organisers for all sorts of odds and ends will bring a dash of order as well as a chic new look to your closet.

And we’ve remembered your everyday needs, too. Whether it’s dresses, shorts or even an adaptable jacket for those cooler days, you’re sure to find a must-have in these pages.

Wishing you hours of reading and sewing pleasure,

Your Editorial Team and Claudia Giesser, Editor-in-Chief
