Virtual Bernina Club — What Is It?

Virtual Bernina Club is a monthly time to meet with other sewing, software and embroidery enthusiasts to refine your sewing skills and explore current and new techniques and accessories. A national Bernina Educator teaches a Webinar; then Vivien, our local educator, discusses and demonstrates the featured techniques.

The club, a lecture/demo, is free and meets the last Friday of the month at 1:00 and on a following Monday night at 6:00PM. Come early and join the fun. Plan to bring your latest project for show-and-tell if you like. A courtesy call (656-4999) letting us know to expect you would be greatly appreciated (we want to be sure we have enough cookies)! Also, there will be 20% off items featured in the club project including presser feet!

All clubs are free at Bernina Sewing Center. We would like all of our customers to take advantage of the trainings we offer. The more you learn about your sewing machines, the more you use it, and get your money’s worth. Bernina of America is big on education, and if you don’t take advantage, you are missing out. This policy will apply to our 4 clubs: Bernina Club, Embroidery Club, Software Club, and HandiQuilter Club. Some of the clubs offer an optional DVD for the lesson. These will be available for you to purchase for only $5. Please call and register ahead of time so we have adequate materials prepared. Thank you!

Each session will incorporate a presentation by a Virtual Bernina educator, and a hands-on opportunity will follow with guidance our own Vivien Swant.

These opportunities will be hosted on the web by trained Bernina educators. You will learn many new techniques, and learn about new products and how to use them.

Please register early to reserve your spot and help us serve you better.
