Introducing the NEW PFAFF® Blog — Perfection Starts Here™

Posted by Carina Thavelin

I am so honored to have been asked to lead the PFAFF® blog. I am a Product Specialist in our Global Marketing Team in Europe and have worked with this brand professionally almost a decade and personally, much longer.

I have always made my profession linked to my personal passion for sewing and have been a lifelong seamstress – even having owned my own tailoring business. Some say I’m a perfectionist – especially when it comes to sewing. I say, if I’m going to take the time to do something, why not do it right? And right is, well, perfect.

My goal for this blog is to provide sewing inspiration, useful tips and hints, as well as sneak previews of our new, exciting products that I am able to get an early look at since I work on the team for months (or years) leading up to the launch. 

Although I sew everything from home dec to garments, I am known amongst my colleagues and friends for always working on my next new dress. I have probably made hundreds of them and, of course, I needed every single one of them! When I travel the first thing I do is find a fabric store to further my collection and inspire me for the next project.

I am also a dog owner (a Mini Pincher named Morris). Like every good owner, I spoil my dog so you’ll see me squeezing in sewing dog outfits, dog beds and gifts for fellow dog owners.

Between my personal and professional sewing career of decades I have to say I’ve learned some tricks of the trade along the way. I love to share special techniques and new ways to use existing products that I have uncovered over the years. Whether you are just starting out or a seasoned sewer I hope you join my blog and enjoy it as much as I enjoy writing about what I eat, breath and sleep sewing - perfect sewing!
