Young sewing enthusiasts from beginning to intermediate sewing levels were guided by BERNINA sewing specialists Jeanne？Delpit as well as Denise and Eric Lopez from Nuttall’s， an authorized BERNINA dealership with four convenient locations around the Salt Lake City area. When there were questions， Jeanne， Denise and Eric had the answers!？Whether it was how to thread the machine with the help of the automatic needle threader or how to stitch up the project； the sewing specialists on the spot supported our creative students to stitch up their cool project from start to finish.
