According to Paula, the creative process does not follow a predetermined path. She lets her ideas flow freely and believes in the motto "a work in progress". She works with the BERNINA because this machine is an absolutely reliable partner in creating and developing new ideas. "The BERNINA is always there for me", she says, and it is therefore the best machine for Paula's textile art.
 
She also conveys her philosophy in her well-known and successful workshops. She believes that every seamstress has a creative streak and that one's imagination should be allowed to run wild. One should combine different materials and techniques that make the impossible possible and place no limits on oneself. This is best achieved with a modern and reliable partner - the BERNINA.
