A Class With No Exam Just Fun

I made it through my classes yesterday...whoohoo! Both classes were held at Dave's Bernina and were taught by Sandra Larson, a really great teacher for Bernina. Luckily, there weren't any tests so I didn't ditch leave in the middle of it.

The first class let us all sew on new Bernina 780'! That is quite the machine! The kit we received included a premade bag that had been opened on one side and at the bottom. We learned to applique/embroider a flower on the bag, do a little machine embroidery, and add a zippered pocket with Wonder Tape. The zipper method was pretty cool! Once we were done, we sewed up the two sides with a serger. It's not spectacular or perfect, but I learned a few things while making it.

The next class was using the BSR (Bernina Stitch Regulator) pics for this one!
I have a lot of practicing to do so I can free motion quilt using that interesting tool.

I think I might just have to sign-up for some more classes!


  1. look a zipper….and a flower and you are a new student…ohhh proud of you

  2. Great job on that bag. Wonder tape? sounds interesting. Did you like the BSR? Sad to say I own that little piece of equipment, for several years now, and I never used it. It's what sucked me into buying my current Bernina. Something came up in my life and I missed the class.

  3. Taking the lessons to learn about your sewing machine are priceless. Can't wait to hear about your BSR class. Which Bernina do you own?

  4. I am very proud of you, you went,you stayed and you learned something new. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
