Augusta, Georgia was a happening place the first part of March! Branum’s Sewing and Vacuum Center, the area BERNINA Dealer, held their annual Southern Sewing School at a local facility. The students stitched up a creative embellished tote and an elegant embroidered pillow plus even some clever accessory pieces on the serger. I had the honor to teach the fun embellished tote using adaptations to the “Clarabella Tote” pattern by Abby Lane Quilts. Nina McVeigh taught the lovely pillow and Kaysie Oldani taught the serger accessories which were created by Nancy Bednar.
The 3-day event takes place every year so if you want to be part of the fun, check the Facebook page for Branum’s Sewing & Vacuum Center. Maybe we’ll see you there next year! Or if you are ever in Augusta, just stop by and visit the great staff who love to share their passion for sewing and BERNINA!
