If you are looking for a new machine for quilting and more, this is the event for you. This is a fun make-and-take event that will allow you to try out our lineup of fantastic BERNINA machines while learning the latest and greatest in techniques and tools!

More fun with the fabulous BERNINA educator Roberta! Ruler Work is the hottest quilting technique out there and you have these new Rulers! Now what? We are going to spend the day experimenting with your rulers as we quilt a detailed medallion on a panel and then transform it into a fashionable linen tote bag. We are also going to review the different ruler shapes including clamshells, orange peel, and waves, and show you how to use them in fills and borders. By the end of this class you will have a better idea on how and where to use the different motifs for our quilt blocks. If you haven?t purchased Rulers and a Ruler Foot yet, we will offer you a 20% discount on them during this class!
