Bernina Educator: Shelly Fitzgerald

Sewing and crafting all of her life allows years of experience to be passed on in a lively and informative way. She freely admits to reading all the manuals for pleasure and then loves teaching what she has learned to her classes. Bringing the out of the ordinary to front and center by encouraging everyone to change their settings (gasp!), use a punch tool (eek!) ruffle, ruffle, ruffle (wow!) and sew with
their left foot (no way!) she shows how easy it is to kick it up a notch or two by using any BERNINA product to its full potential. She makes it fun, not hard and leaves everyone excited about their new tools and skills.

holds the interest of the participants. From overlocking to software, garment sewing to machine embroidery, quilting to home dec, Shelly has a love and understanding of the topics and the BERNINA machines, software, feet and accessories that accomplish each task.
