In addition, attendees will learn more about the BERNINA Stitch Regulator, Eyelet set and Binder attachment, and explore unique techniques while stitching fun projects. BERNINA 580 sewing machines and accessories will be provided for classroom use.
Attendees are required to bring sewing supplies including small scissors, pins, marking pen, seam ripper, rotary cutter, ruler and a 12“x18“ mat for cutting. For more information and to register, please visit:
