I'm Teaching in Chicago at Bernina USA!
I almost never teach in the Chicagoland area, actually I don't think I ever have, so I'm super excited to share that I'll be teaching at BERNINA USA just outside Chicago this December! I'll be teaming up with Jaime David who is the serger education specialist for BERNINA USA to teach you how to make the Driftless Cardigan on a serger as well as specific garment making techniques on your sewing machine. Here's a bit more about the class..
Are you ready to take your garment sewing skills to the next level? Come to our two day Capsule Club Meet and Make and let BERNINA educator, Jaime David and Grainline Studio Pattern Designer, Jen Beeman show you how. In this two day workshop you will create a Driftless Cardigan and learn a series of techniques for Hems and Closures. Cardigans are an essential piece for any wardrobe and this pattern can be made to fit your style. Additionally, you will get to know other garment sewists and have time to socialize during our dinner reception. You are sure to go home enthusiastic to take on your next big project.
