BERNINA V8.2 Embroidery Software Mastery Immersion Club

In preparation for this club, you will need to have the software loaded on your laptop prior to class.  If you have difficulty successfully loading your software you can email BERNINA's software support team here

You will also need to download the following workbooks.  Print them in color.  I also suggest keeping downloaded copies on a portable device such as a smart phone or tablet.  Each book contains video links that will offer you continued learning opportunities.  Refrain from using the videos during class though as this will interrupt the learning and instructional process.

Workbook 1 Basic Features

Workbook 2 Automatic Digitizing

Workbook 3 Advance Features

Skill Details: You MUST register no later than January 25th, 2021. This class is designed for the beginning or accomplished BERNINA software user. You must own the software to benefit from this program.

Instructor: Shelly Fitzgerald
Instructor Bio: Shelly Fitzgerald comes to the classroom with a mixture of enthusiasm and knowledge that quickly attracts and holds the interest of the participants. From overlocking to software, garment sewing to machine embroidery, quilting to home dec, Shelly has a love and understanding of the topics and the BERNINA machines, software, feet and accessories that accomplish each task. Sewing and crafting all of her life allows years of experience to be passed on in a lively and informative way. She freely admits to reading all the manuals for pleasure, and then loves teaching what she has learned to her classes. Bringing the ?out of the ordinary? to front and center by encouraging everyone to change their settings (gasp!), use a punch tool (eek!), ruffle, ruffle, ruffle (wow!) and sew with their left foot (no way!), she shows how easy it is to kick it up a notch or two by using any BERNINA product to its full potential. She makes it fun, not hard, and leaves everyone excited about their new tools and skills. Through her company, Sew Shelly Quilts, LLC, Shelly creates and presents original patterns and classes to bring the extended capabilities of all of the BERNINA products to life. Her classes are rich with techniques, and software is her passion. This will be her 7th year as a member of the BERNINA Event Team, which has brought you Sewaplaooza and BERNINA Academy. YouTube is another favorite way of Shelly?s to engage stitch enthusiasts world wide. Her channel can be found at where she has many up close videos on techniques that can be used with various materials, machine feet, BERNINA V8 Embroidery software, Designworks and her beloved Q20. ?The only thing I like better than sewing and creating is teaching others how to do the same. When you can show someone everything BERNINA products can really do you open such a world of possibility. It is so rewarding to hear to ?ah ha? moments at events and in the classroom.?
