Instructor: Michelle Kratzer is a member of the BERNINA Trade Show and Q-Series teams and enjoys interacting with sewing enthusiasts with all types of creative interests. Presenting for the BERNINA Event Team allows her to share her knowledge in a hands-on way and help sewists explore their creativity and ensure they are using sewing machines and overlockers that are just perfect for them! She has a passion for embroidery that she incorporates into her classes which include: embroidered quilts, home decor, overlocker projects, and heirloom sewing. BERNINA Mastery and Software Clubs round out her teaching mix. Having grown up in the heart of Pennsylvania's quilting country, Michelle has been involved in sewing and crafts for most of her life. Since the late 1990's she has made the sewing industry her career by working sewing/quilting shows and events, teaching classes, and operating a wholesale drapery workroom. She has presented to groups of sewists ranging from 15 to 200 attendees. She currently resides in sunny southwest Florida.
