Update: This class is now virtual for the month of August.
Join DeeAnn in exploring a new embroidery technique each month. DeeAnn will focus on a feature exclusive to your Bernina Embroidery Machine. The techniques range from lessons on monogramming to Endless Embroidery, Pinpoint Placement, and more. This is a great way to get to know your Bernina Embroidery Machine.
The Club will be in lecture/demo format. Students will receive handouts, designs and/or demo videos on their USB sticks where applicable.
Please bring a USB stick for the design, and a pen and paper for taking notes if desired.
