Machine Embroidery Designs and Classes
All About ME — What Is It?
All About Machine Embroidery (ME) is a lecture/demo webinar by a National Bernina Educator. Our local Bernina educator, Rose, teaches all about stabilizers, use of threads and how to use embroidery designs in different applications. Learn how to customize designs to use your Bernina to its full capacity. The class is free and a courtesy phone call (656-4999) to reserve your spot would be greatly appreciated.
All clubs are free at Bernina Sewing Center. We would like all of our customers to take advantage of the trainings we offer. The more you learn about your sewing machines, the more you use it, and get your money's worth. Bernina of America is big on education, and if you don't take advantage, you are missing out. This policy will apply to our 4 clubs: Bernina Club, Embroidery Club, Software Club, and HandiQuilter Club. Some of the clubs offer an optional DVD for the lesson. These will be available for you to purchase for only $5. Please call and register ahead of time so we have adequate materials prepared. Thank you!
Please see the Bernina Embroidery Club schedule in the column at right and descriptions below. Please note that Software Club often complements the same projects that Embroidery Club is working on.
Applique and Other Tricks Your Embroidery Machine Can Do
Did you know you can applique with your embroidery machine? It is so very easy, and every corner will be flawless. You will see two different techniques for applique by machine. We will look at the specialty products that will make life easier. We will also see some other "tricks" your machine can do - from lace to loops to in-the-hoop projects!
In the Right Place
Embroidering ready-made garments can be fun, but sometimes challenging. This class teaches tips on embroidering ready-to-wear, including how and when to open seams, ideal products to use, coordinating designs, and appropriate stabilizers to use. We will also discuss embroidering areas such as collars and cuffs that can't be hooped in the traditional way. Learn to get a design in the right place - the first time!

Introducing... OESD Virtual Club
We will be offering some exciting and beneficial educational opportunities in 2009 to our customers through Oklahoma Embroidery Supply & Design. As many of you know, OESD iscommitted to education.
Each session will incorporate a presentation by a Virtual OESD educator, and a hands-on opportunity will follow with the guidance of one of our staff members.
These opportunities will be hosted on the web by trained OESD educators. You will learn many new techniques, and learn about new products and how to use them.
There will be a $10.00 charge for the first session. If you bring a finished project to the next session, using the technique presented at the previous session, the next session is free. Otherwise, there is another charge. This should encourage everyone to master the techniques so that they don't forget them.
Please register early to reserve your spot and help us serve you better.

Embroidery Tip: Loading Bobbins in 200/730 Artistas
Make sure when you looking at the back side of the bobbin case that the bobbin turns clockwise when you pull on the thread. If it's inserted incorrectly, you will constantly get "out of thread" messages.

We get two or three new collections every month so you'll
always have something to add to your collection. Some of the new designs are part of the new Dream Designs line. Many of you
want to sell your creations at craft shows and bazaars and
now you can! Look for the collections labeled "Bernina

Bernina offers a sampling of their beautiful embroidery designs

offer some free designs that change from time to time. Currently
offered designs are a dragon

leaping reindeer, an American heart, and zebra eyes. Rose made the bookmark at left for

Bernina Dealer Sales Policy
We agree with Bernina USA that it is in the customer's best interest to purchase machines and accessories from the dealer that can best offer them support and service when needed. That is the Berninia dealer nearest you. We hope that's us, but if it's not, you're really best served by purchasing from your local dealer. Therefore, we will not intentionally list prices for Bernina products on our website since your local dealer may offer different prices. If you are a customer in our area, please call us at (406) 656-4999 for current prices of products you're interested in. We will make sure that we qualify as your local dealer before selling you these products. Again, we will not sell machines or other products that violate our dealer agreement with Bernina. This policy assures you that when you buy from us, your local dealer, that you will get the best support and service possible on your purchase. Thank you for your understanding.
