BERNINA Educator, Carrie Wells is a BERNINA enthusiast. She loves the technology and innovations that come with BERNINA machines and software. From sewing, embroidery to DesignWorks software suite - CutWork, PaintWork and CrystalWork, Carrie feels there are no boundaries when creating garments, quilts, pillows, or any other project. Carrie began sewing at a young age and decided that it was something that she wanted to do for a living. So, she set up a Web site to sell her wares. When she realized that she needed a new machine with greater capabilities, she went to a local BERNINA Dealer. There she fell in love with the machines. Given Carrie’s love of BERNINA machines, she began selling them in Houston and then relocated to California where she became a top seller of BERNINA machines.
