Judy Nowicki walked into Erica's Craft & Sewing Center years ago with no idea of how it would change her life! I showed her the Viking model 990 and a simple Pictogram and told her we'd be having classes on all kinds of things with this wonderful machine.

Within a week Judy was back in the shop showing me how to do Pictograms! Her first design was an elaborate basket of flowers that later appeared in her first book. We talked Judy into teaching classes, and her students and I talked her into writing books with her designs to share with Viking lovers who couldn't get to her classes.

She won another prize for the vest you see her shown with here, and another for digitizing a wonderful Peacock Vest for yours truly. Some of her garments have toured with Sue Hausmann and have been seen on "America Sews with Sue Hausmann" on PBS. Sue asked Judy to make her a vest similar to the one here for Sue to wear on one of her shows and Judy was delighted to whip one up for her. Some of Judy's designs have also appeared in the "America Sews" books.

We have shipped Judy's books all over the world and she's received lovely fan letters. We're delighted to have this wonderfully talented lady as a part of our teaching staff here at Erica's.


Our thanks to Jan Henning and Chris Wiik for working out conversions for the Designer SE of the Pictogram stitches Judy used in her popular book. We appreciate Jan's permission to share this from our site. Click here for Pdf Conversion Chart!

PictogramTM Block Party
This time Judy has taken the PictogramTM to a new height of creativity! In this book she combines applique, decorative stitches, candlewicking, and PictogramsTM into wonderful quilt blocks. You will have instructions for 10 different 15" blocks, which you can also use as pillows, and a larger center medallion. She made a twin size quilt, but includes instructions for enlarging the center block and adding extra blocks. We're delighted to be able to have a new book for people who don't have embroidery machines yet, as well as those who do, and still enjoy the manual part of creating. You'll absolutely love this quilt!
This is Judy's formula for the Viking Designer SE candlewicking knot:
Fix
A11 2.5 width, 0 Density, Press X2 8 to 10 times
A2 1.5 Length, Press X2 2 to 3 times depending on the space you want between the knots.
