I found out just before Christmas that I was selected as one of the new BERNINA Ambassadors! What is that, you ask?
I’ve been likening this to a bit like a “juried invitational” show, the kind where you get invited to enter, but then still have to go through the jurying process. You need to be an author, designer, blogger-of-note, etc to be asked to fill out the multi-page application and then it’s up to BERNINA to decide who they will select.
I got the glorious call, and then it was just a matter of days before I got a call from the fine folks at Quilters Quest to come and pick up my machine! Gee, how fast could I drive to get over there??? ha ha!
Quilters Quest was super nice about it too, as I had to wait until I was off from work to head over. They were having a super secret Holiday shopping event for their clients, and they let me nudge in and pick up the machine, even though they were closed to the public. How awesome is that? Deb and Bob run an excellent shop, and Celeste showed me everything I needed to know about the machine before I took it home. If you are in the Chicagoland area, this is a premier quilt shop!! I can’t wait to run a class for them, it will be so much fun.
The machine I am using for the year is the B 750 QE (that’s QE for Quilter’s Edition). It’s like a spaceship compared to the machine I’ve been using, so I’m SO EXCITED to get started and find out everything it can do!!!
