Designs and Classes

All About ME – What is it?

All About Machine Embroidery (ME) is a lecture/demo webinar by a National Bernina Educator. Our local Bernina educator, Rose, teaches all about stabilizers, use of threads and how to use embroidery designs in different applications. Learn how to customize designs to use your Bernina to its full capacity. The class is free and a courtesy phone call (656-4999) to reserve your spot would be greatly appreciated. All clubs are free!

Please see our calendar for the Bernina Embroidery Club schedule. Please note that Software Club often complements the same projects that Embroidery Club is working on.

Applique and Other Tricks Your Embroidery Machine Can Do

Did you know you can applique with your embroidery machine? It is so very easy, and every corner will be flawless. You will see two different techniques for applique by machine. We will look at the specialty products that will make life easier. We will also see some other “tricks” your machine can do – from lace to loops to in-the-hoop projects!

In the Right Place

Embroidering ready-made garments can be fun, but sometimes challenging. This class teaches tips on embroidering ready-to-wear, including how and when to open seams, ideal products to use, coordinating designs, and appropriate stabilizers to use. We will also discuss embroidering areas such as collars and cuffs that can’t be hooped in the traditional way. Learn to get a design in the right place – the first time!


If you do machine embroidery, you should be signed up for the OESD email bulletin. Sign up through Every week you’ll get another tip from Emma dealing with different issues in machine embroidery. There will be valuable tips and techniques, letters from subscribers, and heads-up news from OESD. This is a don’t-miss-opportunity from those who know!

Bernina Dealer Sales Policy

We agree with Bernina USA that it is in the customer’s best interest to purchase machines and accessories from the dealer that can best offer them support and service when needed. That is the Berninia dealer nearest you. We hope that’s us, but if it’s not, you’re really best served by purchasing from your local dealer. Therefore, we will not intentionally list prices for Bernina products on our website since your local dealer may offer different prices. If you are a customer in our area, please call us at (406) 656-4999 for current prices of products you’re interested in. We will make sure that we qualify as your local dealer before selling you these products. Again, we will not sell machines or other products that violate our dealer agreement with Bernina. This policy assures you that when you buy from us, your local dealer, that you will get the best support and service possible on your purchase. Thank you for your understanding.
