I lived my entire life near Pittsburgh, PA - Go Steelers! - and last year moved to Portland, OR. I guess it was time for a change! I'm now a BERNINA Resource Teacher in District W (the Pacific Northwest) and I travel the west coast presenting events and selling BERNINA machines, software, and accessories. I tell my students to step outside their "sewing" box. Change it up, try new techniques and applications. Be inspired! Don't limit yourself to your comfort zone.
