About the instructor, Betty Stoltenberg
Betty feels very fortunate that she has been able to take her passion of all things BERNINA and turn it into a second career. She has been selected to be a member of the BERNINA Event Team, Longing for a Longarm Team and Q series tradeshow team. She loves being able to share her knowledge and love for BERNINA to help people choose the right machine for them.
When she is not travelling the country presenting BERNINA Events or working tradeshows Betty contracts with local dealers to teach their BERNINA Mastery, Embroidery and Software classes. She recently added teaching Q-matic classes to her repertoire. Betty enjoys seeing the spark in her student’s eyes when they realize they love their machine just as much as she does.
BERNINA’s publication, “The Look Book 2014”, and Weallsew.com have featured Betty’s creative creations, complete with instructions for consumers to complete with their BERNINA machines.
