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 and embroidery machines. Having served as a university professor and administrator, teaching is Venitta?s passion! It is most important for her students to experience laughter, fun, learning, and enjoyment with every class she teaches from beginning quilting to composing basic and complicated embroidery, CutWork, CrystalWork and painted designs in the BERNINA Software and DesignWorks. For her, 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 now can be accomplished with the current technology available with BERNINA machines. She has enjoyed traveling and working with BERNINA dealers and their customers for over 20 years and she has worked extensively with all BERNINA software products, machine embroidery and stitch manipulation techniques. She is an accredited Jenny Haskins Tutor and a certified Hoopsisters? instructor. One of her specialties is creating beautiful machine embroidered quilts.
