Instructor: Venitta McCall
Instructor Bio: Venitta received her first BERNINA, the 801 Sport in 1979 when she experienced garment sewing using the Stretch and Sew method. She has continued to learn and now teaches BERNINA Embroidery Software classes, as well as many classes on BERNINA sewing, embroidery and overlocker machines. Having served as a university professor and administrator, teaching is her passion! The joy of sewing is in the process and the learning that comes from sharing tips, techniques, new ways of stitching and rethinking what was done in the past and what can be accomplished with the current technology available with BERNINA machines.
