BERNINA Stitchwise: Clever Quilting

BERNINA Stitchwise: Clever Quilting -- You're InvitedDreaming of a longarm, thinking about a sit down – let us help you create the quilting set up of your dreams! Artistic Artifacts is excited to be hosting a BERNINA event to help you make a decision and take the intimidation out of your testing phase!

It’s important to evaluate the options of sit-down BERNINA Q Machines versus the option of purchasing Q machines on a frame, and this BERNINA Stitchwise: Clever Quilting event is the perfect opportunity! Led by Betsy Carlson of the BERNINA EVENT Team, it’s designed to introduce you to the BERNINA sit down Q16, Q16 Plus, Q20 or Q24 with hands-on experience.

We are offering 3-hour sessions (morning and afternoon time slots available) on Friday April 5 and Saturday April 6reserve your seat now! Morning sessions are invitations to those looking to move up to longarm quilting, and your fee of $59.99 will be applied to your machine purchase. Our Friday afternoon session is for current BERNINA Q Series sitdown owners — a great opportunity to work with a BERNINA Educator to ensure you are getting the most out of your machine! The Saturday afternoon session is dedicated to those interested in the BERNINA Q-matic Longarm Quilting Automation System.

Rulerwork on a BERNINA longarmDuring each half-day session, participants will share a machine and enjoy direct, hands-on experience with longarm quilting:

  • Learn multiple free-motion techniques.
  • Gain confidence in quilting while discovering first-hand what makes quilting on a BERNINA Q Series machine so special!
  • Create a sampler that includes examples of stippling, fill techniques, ruler work, echo quilting and more.

Let us know if you are interested in a frame machine and possibly a Q-Matic. Artistic Artifacts has display models of the Q20 on Studio Frame and Q24 with Q-Matic on professional frame in our showroom. For the Saturday April 6 session from 1:00 - 4:00 pm, Betsy will show you just how easy quilting can be with a BERNINA Q-Matic. Learn how to quilt your quilts quickly with edge to edge quilting, explore custom quilting for squares, triangles, borders and more. Q-Matic can beautifully quilt those squares that are not quite square and even borders that are not quite straight!

We look forward to assisting you in deciding which BERNINA longarm set-up best fits your needs, space, and budget. Reserve your seat now, or contact Judy Gula if you have any questions about BERNINA longarms or this event at
