Sewing BERNINA Community Studio

Every other month we offer a unique sewing project from BERNINA Community Studio to challenge and promote your machine embroidery skills.  

Sewing Lesson #1: Machine-Made Tapestry with Hayley Grzych
Textured hand-woven tapestries are popping up in many trendy home design inspiration platforms. Learn how to use your BERNINA and some unconventional accessories, like felting and free-motion couching, to create a one-of-a-kind piece of modern art for your home. 

Sewing Lesson #2: Constructing a Professional Pillow with Julie Bridgeman
Stop looking for the perfect pillow and make your own! Learn how to construct a home dec pillow, add piping and insert a zipper. After you make this one, you can use your new sewing skills to make many more in your favorite fabrics and custom sizes! Add a special touch and join us for Embroidery Lesson #3 where I’ll show how to add seasonal, embroidered panels that can be changed throughout the year!

Sewing Lesson #3: Multi-Functional Garden Apron with Megann Freese
April showers bring May flowers, and summer is just around the corner! What will you use to tend to the garden? Follow along with this BERNINA Community Studio lesson to create a durable and functional garden apron, featuring a front carrying pouch, carrying handles, and several pockets to tote around all your gardening accessories. This project will use a variety of BERNINA non-stick presser feet to easily sew
together layers of tough materials, such as vinyl and heavy canvas.

Sewing Lesson #4: Sandhill Sling Bag with Hayley Grzych
Sewing bags presents new challenges for many sewists-- sewing through bulky seams, inserting zippers, and working with elastic or heavier fabrics are just a few. Learn some helpful tips on these topics and create the simple, functional Sandhill Sling bag designed by Noodlehead Patterns.

Sewing Lesson #5: Mini-Quilt with Circle Applique & Decorative Stitches with Julie Bridgeman
Learn circle applique with BERNINA Circular Embroidery Attachment #83. Using satin stitches and other decorative stitches, we’ll learn two ways to use the attachment. First, we’ll make the applique and second, we’ll create echo quilting. Directional couching feet and walking feet will be shown also as options to add finishing touches. By the end of class, you’ll have a beautiful mini-quilt to adorn your sewing room!

Sewing Lesson #6: Stand-Up Notions Pouch with Megann Freese
It’s time to reinvent the pencil bag! For the sewing lesson this month we will be creating a stand-up pouch,
similar in size to a pencil bag, to store all of your sewing notions. You can leave it stationary at home or zip
it up to take on-the-go. This lesson will help you install zippers with ease, even on “sticky” materials, using
BERNINA non-stick presser feet. Other included techniques will be seaming, edgestitching, and piping
