In this half-day event, you will discover just how easy Longarm quilting can be with the BERNINA Q-matic. Learn how to quilt your quilts quickly with the edge to edge quilting on a frame. Then explore custom quilting for squares, triangles, borders and more. Even when your squares are not perfectly square, Q-matic makes it a cinch to quilt to fit. This class is suitable for beginners and experience quilters. If you've ever wanted to learn more about computerized longarm quilting, then this class is for you!
Just bring yourself to enjoy and learn - machines and supplies will be provided. This is a try before you buy event for non owners. We will work on the BERNINA Q-24s & Q-16 on frames, with 2 persons per machine.
Space is limited, so don?t wait to save your spot!!
Sewing and creating have been Betty's lifelong passions, so it was only natural that her
indirect path led her from a high-tech career to joining the BERNINA Event Team for their
first Sewapalooza events in 2014. In addition to leading sessions at a wide variety of
BERNINA events since then, Betty has created several projects and instructions that have
been featured in the BERNINA WeAllSew Blog and the 2014 Look Book.
Betty has digitized embroidery patterns for nearly 20 years and quilting designs for the past
three years. She is always eager to learn new BERNINA systems and use them to bring her
imagination to life. When BERNINA introduced the Q-Series longarm with Q-matic, Betty
knew that she would love discovering and then teaching others how to get the most out of
this powerful quilting machine.
In 2018, Betty joined the newly formed BERNINA Longarm Trade Show/Event Team to focus
on the Q-series, and she enjoys seeing the spark in a student's eyes when they overcome a
hurdle with their projects and better understand their machine and technique.
When Betty isn't presenting BERNINA events, working at trade shows, or teaching her own Q-matic/Art and Stitch classes, she is
constantly developing new projects and honing creative skills. Her sewing studio includes BERNINA 170, B 200, B 880 PLUS, L 220,
1100DA, Leo the Longarm (Q24 on a classic frame with Q-matic), E16 and her newest addition is Olivia (L 890).
