Sewing and creating have been lifelong passions of mine. So it was only natural that my indirect path led me from a high-tech career to joining the BERNINA Event Team in 2014. In addition to leading sessions at a wide variety of BERNINA events since then, Betty has created several projects and instructions that have been featured in the BERNINA WeAllSew Blog and the 2014 Look Book.
I have digitized embroidery patterns for nearly 20 years and quilting designs for the past several years. I’m always eager to learn new BERNINA systems and use them to bring my imagination to life. When BERNINA introduced the Q-Series longarm with Q-matic, I knew that I would love discovering and then teaching others how to get the most out of this powerful quilting machine.
I enjoy seeing the spark in a student’s eyes when they overcome a hurdle with their projects and better understand their machine and technique.
When I’m not presenting BERNINA events, working at trade shows, or teaching my own Q-matic/Art and Stitch classes, I’m constantly developing new projects , online course content and honing my creative skills.
