We are so thrilled to bring an exciting BERNINA event ~ Tame That Technique ~ to The Modern Sewist. Due to the limited seats available for this exclusive event, we are taking applications so that we can best match students for this 2-day course.

Course Description: 
Learn how to successfully sew a variety of seaming, hemming, and embellishment techniques
to give your projects a professional finish. Discover ways to make sewing easier by using proper feet, stitches, and
features of BERNINA machines for precise sewing. Students will be inspired and encouraged to sew as they learn how
to successfully work with new techniques made easy with the right tips and tools.

Course Objective: The two-day course exposes students to a wide variety of techniques and will teach them the
fundamentals of seaming, hemming, and embellishing. They will build a solid sewing foundation that will help them

reference guide every time they walk into their sewing studio and turn on their BERNINA to sew their next project.
