BERNINA Educator, Lorraine Wilkins, from Bend, Oregon learned to sew when she was 10 years old.  While she began sewing garments and curtains, she has experienced the world of quilting.  In fact  Lorraine’s first quilting class took place at a BERNINA Dealer where she was able to test drive the power of BERNINA machines.
