Artistic Artifacts offers BERNINA Sewing Machine Mastery and BERNINA Embroidery Machine Mastery and BERNINA L 890 Mastery Mastery Classes using Zoom (our Serger Basics class will remain in person, to accomodate the many different brands of sergers allowed in class).
We began conducting live Zoom Mastery classes due to the pandemic, but the response from participants has been so positive we will continue to do so. Benefits include:
- Sessions are open to anyone, no matter where they live! (Our lives sessions are scheduled in the Eastern time zone.) If your local dealer has not been able to offer Mastery classes; you need a refresher after a sewing layoff; you’ve inherited a BERNINA, etc., our classes are the ideal opportunity to learn to use your machine to its fullest potential!
- No need to transport your heavy BERNINA from your sewing space to our shop for an in-person class — stay comfortable in your own home!
If you purchased your BERNINA from us, your Mastery Classes are FREE! Those who did not buy their machine from Artistic Artifacts are welcome to purchase registrations for our Mastery Classes. BERNINA Mastery classes are segmented by series. We’re happy to have BERNINA Ambassador Kathy Lincoln as our instructor! Kathy has years of experience teaching nationally, including at the International Quilt Festival in Houston.Contact us with BERNINA Mastery class questions »
