Easy Embellishments with Susan Beck

September 24 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


One of the most satisfying things about sewing is that you can use your own creative juices to make every project unique. Join us for a day of creativity and fun as we learn 20+ embellishment techniques using 9 specialty presser feet. Learn to add color, create texture and join fabrics in decorative ways as we explore these creative and easy techniques. The kit includes all fabrics, threads, batting, and stabilizers as needed for techniques plus assorted notions such as buttons, charms, ribbons, cords, etc. 

Susan has been crafting with fabric, needle, and thread since she was a young child and holds a bachelor’s degree in textiles and clothing along with a master’s degree in design. She likes all types of sewing but her favorite is mixed media – mixing fabric, paper, fibers, ephemeral mementos, photographs, trinkets, charms, etc. Having worked in the industry for over 20 years as an educator, writer, and editor for BERNINA of America, Susan is now a freelance teacher, blogger, and designer. She is the owner of, where she blogs and teaches about all types of sewing, focusing on using your sewing machine and presser feet to improve your sewing and expand your creativity. Don’t forget to bring your “BIG Book of Feet” book or any of the BERNINA “BIG Book of…” for Susan to sign.
