Join DeeAnn in exploring a new technique each month with your Bernina Software V8. We will focus on expanding your digitizing skills. The techniques range from lessons on Artwork Canvas to Multi-Hooping, Quilter, Cross Stitch, and more. This is a great way to get to know your Bernina Software V8.
The Club will be 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.
