Learn how to successfully sew challenging fabrics such as leather, fur, chiffon, cork, knit and more during this BERNINA Academy Event. Learn seam and hem finishes to "sew like a pro" on various fabrics. Discover ways to make sewing easier by using proper feet, stitches and features of BERNINA machines for precise sewing. We will let the Creative Consultant built in the BERNINA machine, be the guide and lead students through the course. Students will be inspired and encouraged to sew as they learn how to successfully work with all the new textiles available using traditional techniques.
This two-day event will give you the opportunity for a hands on experience with BERNINA's newest top of the line machines - the B880 Plus and B790 Plus while exposing you to a wide variety of fabrics. At the end of the academy, participants will have made a Technique Book to use as a reference guide every time they walk into their sewing studio and turn on their BERNINA to sew their next project.
There are no course requirements! Whether you are a seasoned pro, or you've never touched a sewing machine, you can attend this event. Everyone will walk away with tips and techniques to improve their sewing skills or inspire them to learn and sew more! Each attendee will leave with a completed Technique Book, a collectible BERNINA USB stick containing project inspiration and instructions, and valuable sewing knowledge.
Even better - all machines used at the event will be offered at a great price along with discounts on all accessories shown during the event! Great time to test drive your next machine!
