Guide Classes


You have purchased the sewing machine of your dreams, now it’s time learn how to use it to its full potential and how to care for it so it is happy to stitch every time you sit in front of it.  Best of BERNINA Guide classes are offered free of charge to customers who purchase their BERNINA machine, serger or software from us.  Depending on your BERNINA model, the total hours of classes will range from three to over 30.  Classes are scheduled during the day, in the evening, and occasionally on Saturday to meet your busy calendar.

These classes are small with a maximum of eight students.  The pace is manageable even for the novice sewer.  The information presented is so beneficial that seasoned sewers find these classes well-worth their valuable time. 

All are hand-on your machine or computer.  You will gain experience on your own machine as you sew samples to build a reference workbook.  You gain experience with your own equipment; skills and expertise that will be advantageous to your future sewing. 

While the Guide classes are planned to teach you the most frequently used techniques, we don’t stop there.  Please join us at our clubs and other classes where we present additional skills, inspiration, and sewing experiences.  We have been here for close to three decades to provide you the Best of BERNINA and the sewing world.  Visit our clubs and classes pages to see all that Best of BERNINA has to offer you in continued learning.
