With over 20 years experience teaching and using BERNINA software, Teri takes joy in encouraging people of all ages to be inspired by learning how to be successful with their machines and software programs and she takes pride in their results.
Teri says: "With embroidery software, I believe you must know why to pick that particular tool, not just what the tool does . . . my software teaching style is tool-based, not project-based. My hope is that you become as passionate and knowledgeable about your software as I am."
Teri ﬁrst purchased the BERNINA Customizer Designer V1 in 1998 to make a Baltimore Album Quilt for her husband and began teaching software classes using V3. She did ﬁnish the Baltimore Album quilt using the tools in V4, but gave the quilt to a church for auction. The new tools in V8 have inspired her to make another quilt for her patient husband, so stay tuned! She ﬁne-tuned her diverse sewing and embroidery skills by working and teaching at a multi-store BERNINA dealership for more than 15 years.
A sought-after speaker who continues to teach around the USA about all things embroidery, she has years of experience with multiple machine brands, sewing, quilting, threads and needles.
A properly digitized design is only the beginning of your adventure. "I'll also teach you about needles, stabilizers and thread," Teri says, "so you will be crossing the ﬁnish line with knowledge and style!"
