BERNINA’s DesignWorks is comprised of three components—CutWork, PaintWork, and CrystalWork—that turn any embroidery machine into a multimedia tool. With CutWork, shapes, patterns and designs can be cut from multiple layers of fabric. PaintWork allows the application of pen drawings to fabric and textiles. CrystalWork gives the ability to create crystal appliqué patterns for textiles and garments.
BERNINA Educator Kellie Rushing began sewing at age 5 when her grandmother taught her how to hand-embroider. After marrying and becoming a stay-at-home mom, Kellie used her skill to start a home-based business making custom draperies. She fell in love with her first BERNINA in 1988 and BERNINA has been her passion ever since. Kellie has been a BERNINA Dealer, a freelance educator, and a BERNINA National Tradeshow team member.
