Update: This class will be virtual in July! If you have signed up for any of the Pretty Projects classes since March, you will be contacted so you know which project will be presented in July.
Join Mindy in exploring new creative projects with your Bernina. Each month will focus on a simple, easy-to-learn project that you can replicate at home. This is a great way to get to know your Bernina.
The Club will be in a lecture/demo format. Students will receive handouts and/or demo videos on their USB sticks where applicable.
Please bring a USB stick for the design and pen and paper if you want to take notes.
