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 Tari Intardonato learned to sew in her early teens and has been sewing ever since. The BERNINA brand has always been a part of her life. Both her grandmothers sewed on BERNINA machines. Tari earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Vocational Home Economics and taught high school home economics in Oklahoma, married, and moved to the Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas area. She worked for several years for BERNINA Sewing Center in Dallas and Plano, Texas, where she sold BERNINA products and taught classes in sewing techniques and operation of BERNINA machines. She later managed a BERNINA Sewing Center and continued to teach classes in the BERNINA line, as well as sewing projects.
BERNINA Sewing Center is an authorized BERNINA Dealer that provides top-quality service to area residents.
