Q:

Your website links to outdated classes for the Learn to Sew (from 2011). Could you please post an updated class schedule?

YIKES! Is it 2012 already? Sorry Ann, that got past us. I've taken off the link. The Book -Now button is working and we will be scheduling more classes to keep up with demand! Thank you for your message. Glorianne Team Member. :)

Q:

Which Bernina do you use? I have a Artista 640 w/the embroidery attachement, discs etc that I have never used. Do you have that one or could/should I bring my own?

Hello Pauline, WOW! A Bernina 640 is an amazing machine. You are one lucky duck! We will be using the new Bernina 780 in the embroidery class, but everything we do in class you'll be able to do at home on your Bernina. We provide everything for class use... all you need to bring is yourself! I was thinking, you might want to take some of our other classes to learn how to use your Bernina. Just call us to sign up. Learn your Bernina classes are very inexpensive. 206-523-4739 These are three classes you might be interested in: Artista Embroidery Machine Learn all the tricks for successful embroidery on your Artista or 580.

Q:

I am a somewhat experienced quilter/seamstress on a standard sewing machine (one bobbin). Overlock (Bernina) machines intimidate the heck out of me because of their complexity (& cost!). I have never operated one; know absolutely nothing about how to make them work. Which class would be the better choice to learn the machine as we sew? I don't want to get too far into the functions if I can't make it go.

Olivia J.  asked on  Sep 22, 2012

A:

Good Morning Olivia, Sorry I didn't get a chance to answer sooner. The Bernina machines we're using are 'regular' sewing machines. The learn to sew class is two projects that anyone on any sewing machine would be able to sew. We even provide the patterns after class so that you will be able to make as many zippy bags and pillowcases as you want at home! We love sewing and want more people to love sewing, there is no need to be intimidated by the Bernina name.... we've taught this class many times and everyone has walked away successful! The Intro to machine software and embroidery is a fun class that will explore embroidery and embroidery software. The bag is adorable and will be completed during class. If your home machine doesn't have embroidery function, then you wouldn't be able to do that part at home.... but putting a zippered pocket on an existing tote bag is a VERY useful skill, especially in Seattle with the bag ban. :) Either class would be fun and you would learn useful skills in both. The Learn to Sew is more popular and you could do everything in class at home. I hope that answers your questions. If not, or if you have more questions, please feel free to write again or call the store and talk to one of our team members. 206-523-4739. Anyone who answers the phone can answer questions or schedule for class. Thank you for your message. Glorianne Team member. :)
