BERNINA Creative Studio Embroidery



Join our BERNINA and embroidery expert Ann Williams for a different embroidery lesson each month. Each class will feature a 15 minute video lesson covering a BERNINA embroidery technique, a project with instructions and design files, and tips and tricks from Ann.

Please bring a USB drive to class.

During the May class, learn to use the BERNINA embroidery machine’s freearm, which provides you with more space when embroidering projects that are not flat. It makes it easier to create great looking embroidery even on a project with “shape” and can be used with several BERNINA hoop sizes.



During the June class, learn to use Endless Embroidery to help you line up embroidery designs for the most precise placement for multiple designs such as a borders. Endless Embroidery creates registration marks that are stitched that help take the fear out of re-hooping. Using Endless Embroidery is perfect for embellishing bed linens, table linens and more.

August - Appliqued Decorator Pillow
Applique done in the hoop is not only faster, it allows for stunning effects not possible using conventional methods. This project is the perfect marriage of modern and traditional. We will integrate appliqued squares into a 9-patch layout to create an 18 inch pillow cover that is sure to become a focal point in your home décor.
