BERNINA Creative Studio - Project & Technique - January


Project and Technique Classes are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 10:30-1:30. Each session includes a hands-on project class with instructor, project class handout, project class pattern and instructions, and all materials required to complete your project. You will also be treated to a free technique video with supporting samples to view and a technique handout for home instruction. You will need to bring your sewing machine, appropriate feet and a basic sewing/notions kit. You will be provided with a list of what to bring prior to each class. 

While the lessons come from BERNINA, you do not need to own one to participate. Each of the lessons feature tips, tricks and techniques which use features of the BERNINA machines; however, your instructor will be able to guide you along regardless of your machine.
