    Sara, I finished my “quilt” about 2 weeks ago and finally finished the binding today. If I can figure out how to send a picture I’ll do that. I have been doing machine embroidery for years on Brother machines and love it, but recently purchased an emb. module for my Bernina 535. These class was my project to learn to know the Bernina embroidery and it really did help. I enjoyed the class so much and appreciate all that you put of yourself into teaching.

    1. Sara says:

      Hi Louise,

      That’s wonderful! You can share your picture to our e-mail:

  15. Denise Tatum says:

    Hi Sara, your machine tutorials are great. I bought a brilliance 80 but had to return the floor model because of stitching problems. I was learning a lot from the embroidery essentials. But I just bought a bernina 590. Can I still get info? It’s seems very different.
    I have been sewing on Viking for over 20 years.

    I hope to take the stitching cosmos later this year. Thank you, much appreciative of your help.

    Do you have an embroidery class for Brilliance 80 Husqvarna?
