"Once you drive a BERNINA longarm, you never want to drive anything else." Lisa H. Calle Longarm Quilt Artist

About Lisa: With a degree in Textile Management and Marketing, Lisa H. Calle soon began to explore the “other” side of textiles, the artistic side. She fell in love with quilting in 1997 and discovered longarm quilting in 2004. Her award-winning original designs have opened the door to teaching opportunities so that others can learn from her art and skills.

Tula Pink and Sarah Vedeler designs included

BERNINA is taking Longarm Quilting another step forward with the new designs of Tula Pink and Sarah Vedeler. The famous designers clear the way for a new art form, which we affectionately call „quiltbroidery“; a mixture between quilting and embroidery. The results are beautiful, intricate and artistic designs that transform every quilt into an art piece.
 

To achieve the best possible results, we recommend that you

  • Use a matching thread for Sarah Vedeler’s letter designs or even better a variegated matching thread.
  • Keep the designs the same size. If you enlarge or reduce the design, sew out a test sample first.
  • Quilt in the middle of the frame.
