Learn the basics of Quilting with a BERNINA Stitch Regular.

Let’s Go Quilting is an all-in-one sewing software that gives you the tools you need to create your first quilt, or advance your skills. Let’s Go Quilting offers easy to use features such as automatic seam matching and pinning, options for free motion quilting, and seven different stitch types. If you are looking for a more advanced feature set in a sewing machine then take a look at our BSR line of machines!

Sew decorative cording onto your sewing project with quick and easy couching techniques

Couching is a decorative technique where you add cording, ribbon, or yarn to your sewing project by sewing it through the fabric in a specific direction. You can use this technique on any kind of project – from quilts to pillows to bags!

You can couch with a sewing machine or hand stitch. Couching works best when sewn at an angle with the cording having a slight stretch to it so that when pulled tight it forms an X-shaped pattern (like tracing paper). When attached this way, you can get any pattern you want – straight lines or curves – through couching!

Master the BERNINA Stitch Regulator and create beautiful, consistent stitches.

The BERNINA Stitch Regulator is a tool that allows you to create beautiful and consistent stitches. It’s great for piecing quilts, sewing garments, or working on any project that requires accuracy and precision.

The Stitch Regulator takes the guesswork out of sewing by ensuring that every stitch looks like it should. It also makes it easier to sew at high speeds without compromising stitch quality because it uses your existing presser foot height settings so there’s no need to manually adjust them after every fabric thickness change (like when sewing lightweight fabrics).

Benefits of using the BERNINA Stitch Regulator:

  • You can sew faster because you don’t have to worry about keeping the stitches even when starting and stopping.
  • Work on larger quilts more effortlessly
  • Choose from a variety of ways to best suit your quilting style.

Experiment with a variety of new tools and techniques at this Bernina StitchWise event

This year, we’re mixing things up. Instead of sticking to a single category (like quilting or machine embroidery), we’re diving into some of our favorite tools and techniques that you can use in your sewing and quilting projects.

  • Get tips on how to make machine stitches more exciting with different thread weights, needles, and fabric choices.
  • Learn bonus highlights about BERNINA’s new line of sergers so that you can start incorporating them into your projects as well.

Create a fun decorative pillow to use in your home

The pattern for this project will be provided at the event, so you don’t need any special materials. Just come! Everything is provided!
