Julie Bridgeman

Location: Chicago, IL - western suburbs

Hobbies: quilting, sewing, cooking, collecting Bordallo pottery

Favorite Type of Sewing: piecing traditional blocks with modern fabric

Julie Bridgeman started sewing when her children were little. At that time, the online community did not exist. She learned through books, classes, and lots of unstitching! What started with a bernette and scraps of fabric has turned into a BERNINA 790 Plus and a room full of fabrics. Julie loves the process of patchwork - selecting a pattern, auditioning fabric, cutting and sewing the fabric, quilting (domestic and long arm), and binding. Before BERNINA, she worked at a quilt store and owned a t-shirt quilt business. Now, she enjoys working with an incredible education team doing what she loves.
