Nuttall's Bernina -- Salt Lake City UT

I've been in Salt Lake City this week teaching at Nuttall's Bernina. For the past few years, I have been coming here twice a year for a week to ten days to teach a series of workshops at the Nuttall's stores. Salt Lake is a pretty big city -- Nuttall's has four locations so that many stitchers will have a local Bernina/Brother dealer to visit.

Monday and Tuesday was the Fluff & Stuff class, my two day workshop on machine quilting on a domestic machine. We had a full class of 20 people, half on Bernina 830s and half on top of the line Brother machines. By "top of the line", I mean machines with lots of convenient features and accessories; I'm very impressed by the performance of these machines.

At the beginning of the first day, we were getting set up and ready to go; to decorate the classroom, Joyce and Joni hung my quilts over the bolts of fabric lining the walls....

More quilts -- Tequila Sunrise on the left, Make Mine Neapolitan on the right....

This picture is from yesterday's workshop, Positive/Negative: Adding Color to Trapunto by Machine. We had all Bernina 830's in the classroom as well as cutting and pressing stations.

Another picture from the left hand corner, Karla is sewing away while, on the right, Marie is engrossed in her project. The bright pink and yellow quilt hanging above Marie is a Hoop Sisters design....

Kits were provided for this class by Nuttall's; there were equal amounts of orange and purple fabrics -- Kitty chose the orange fabric for her sashings and used the purple to "shadow through" the white squares. She got hers all pinned up and ready to quilt!

Mary chose the purple sashing and orange shadowing through. It's a bright orange, but when it shows through the white, it mutes almost to a deep peach. All of the quilts were gorgeous!

Today is Borders & Bindings -- can't wait!
