On the International Space Station, brave astro-pioneers pass the time by making crafts—namely, dream catchers to catch the dreams of any nearby aliens dreaming of attacking Earth. Make your crafting dreams come true with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a two-session introductory sewing class with materials included at Bernina Northwest (a $70 value), located on Northeast Northgate Way.
In its high-ceilinged shop hung with finely crafted quilts and tapestries, Bernina Northwest teaches needle neophytes to harness the stitching power of a Bernina sewing machine. In the two-session Learn to Sew class students make a pouch or pillowcase that can cover cushions and pillows or hold a collection of DIY-jetpack manuals. Sewing-machine rental and a fabric kit are included; see here for a full class schedule.
The sewing machines and staff alike at Bernina Northwest are Bernina certified. Technicians in operating and fixing the company's sewing machines, sergers, and software help customers sew embroidered wall hangings, cozy quilts, neat hems, and Frankensteins that won't unravel the first time they experience anger. Customers of any skill level can dive into the details in classes tailored to their specific machine. Should a device ever break, a shop technician uses his three decades of familiarity with the products to solve technical problems, backed with a 180-day guarantee insuring the repair.
