Linda has been sewing since she was 10 years old when her grandmother taught her how to use a sewing machine. She began making doll clothes and then moved on to garment sewing. This sewing journey continued through college where Linda studied accounting and marketing at Saginaw Valley State University in northern lower Michigan. Along the way she has shared her passion and knowledge working for a major fabric store chain, and teaching sewing and quilting classes to adults. Her most rewarding teaching experience was the 4 years she taught Jr. High sewing. After that she worked for a BERNINA dealership for 15 years as an educator and sales associate. Linda also managed one of the BERNINA Corporate stores before becoming a BERNINA Educator in 2005. All of these experiences have allowed her to increase her knowledge and skills while having the opportunity to work with the best. Linda's goal is to share her love of sewing and the BERNINA brand. Sewing began as a hobby, then evolved into an obsession and now is her career. She is constantly looking at what everyone is doing in the sewing world as she searches for new information and inspiration.
