Beginner Machine Embroidery Class

The Beginner Machine Embroidery Class is for anyone who would like to have a hands‐on sewing/embroidery class to learn how to use their wonderful Bernina sewing/embroidery machines. We will be making a lightweight, washable bag that can be kept in your car so you’ll be ready to make stops to your favorite grocery store or quilt shop! Complete this versatile bag in class and you’ll be ready to go shopping on your way home! This class was designed to help newbies learn how to use the sewing and embroidery features of their machines. (5 series, 7 series, or the 880 Plus machines.)


Learn how to:

  •   Access a design already on your machine

  •   Bring it to the edit screen

  •   Select the correct hoop size for the design

  •   Resize, rotate, and move the design within the selected hoop

  •   Create custom lettering to personalize your bag

  •   Choose the correct type of stabilizer for your project

  •   Tricks and tips on hooping for the best results

  •   Switch between the embroidery and sewing sides of your machine

  •   Which types of presser feet to use for ease in construction and much more.

    Class dates & Time: September 30, 2020 ~ 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

    The store opens at 9:30 so please come before class begins to set up your machine so we can get started on time. We have limited spaces, so please sign up early to reserve your spot!

    Note: This class was designed for our “newbie” Bernina 5, 7, and 880 plus series Sewing/Embroidery Machine owners who requested a hands‐on class using the built in embroidery designs and alphabets. Anyone with an older model Bernina machine is welcome to participate in the class if you are familiar with how to navigate your machine’s features and do basic editing.
