Welcome to Bernina - Computerized Quilting with Embroidery Machine - (3hr Total)
This is a great way for you to explore what your Bernina or Bernette embroidery machine can do!
NOTES: we can host 8 bodies in store but you can also join us virtually from your home as well! Please make your selection from the drop down on the calendar field if you want in person or virtually. Please keep in mind if you are doing this virtually, we need time to send you the kit or you may be required to create your own - we will refund the value of the kit if we cannot supply it in time.
What you'll learn:
Explore all aspects of computerized quilting (also known as quilting in the hoop). Use your BERNINA or bernette embroidery machine with large hoop to create a central design. We will quilt the borders of the mini quilt to finish our project.
Learn about motif choice, hooping a quilt, concealing thread tails, motif placement with “Pinpoint Placement” feature, motif placement with “Check” feature and much more.
Suitable for BERNINA and bernette machines with embroidery
*This event requires attendees to make a base quilt ahead of time.
