Meet BERNINA Educator Venitta McCall!

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 professor and administrator at a state university, teaching is Venitta’s passion! It is most important for her students to have fun and enjoyment with every class she teaches from beginning quilting to composing complicated designs in the software or designing with pencil and paper and then stitching on to fabric what they have created themselves or published pattern they follow. 

For her the joy of sewing is in the process and the learning that comes from sharing tips, techniques, new ways of stitching, rethinking what was done in the past and what now can be accomplished with the current technology available with our machines. She has enjoyed traveling and working with sewing machine dealers and their customers for over 20 years. 

Venitta has worked extensively with BERNINA Embroidery Software, machine embroidery and stitch manipulation. She is an accredited Jenny Haskins Tutor and a certified Hoopsisters instructor. One of her specialties is creating beautiful machine embroidered quilts.
