Before class, make sure you know how to thread the machine and the bobbin. If you need help with this, come into the store before class and we will be happy to help you.
To prepare for these classes, be sure to let us know your are coming. We will email you the workbook files for you to print out in preparation for the class.
The first of the machine mastery classes, #1, is on either Friday or Saturday, Jan. 11 or 12, 10:30 - 12:30. The dates for the rest of the classes are at the end of this email.
All BERNINA/bernette owners are invited to attend all classes, however after class 1 not all machines will be able to perform all functions.
BERNINA/bernette Machine Mastery classes are free to those who purchased their machines at Sew Biz. All others are welcome for a fee.... $40 for the first class and $20 per class after that. The Mastery notebook pages on a USB stick and fabric samples are provided to all. Please call 540-639-1138, or email sewbiz.radford@gmail to say that you are coming so we will have the correct number of prepared samples for you.
Be sure to bring your BERNINA or bernette machine, cord, foot control, slide-on table if you have one, all of your feet and accessories, and (very important!) the owner's manual that came with your machine. Other useful items include scissors, small ruler, pencil or pen. We will talk about a special thread that you will select when you get here.
Topics for session 1 include:
Machine needle choices
Thread selections for sewing and embroidery success
Neat techniques for securing stitches
Zig zag stitch
Triple straight stitch
