Instructor Bio:
Adrienne learned the art of sewing and needlework from her mother and her
paternal grandmother. Candlewicking, Hardanger, needlepoint, and cross-stitch all gave
way to machine sewing when she miraculously won a sewing machine during her
second year of university. The arrival of her first child was celebrated with a handmade
quilt from a friend. This began her enthusiasm for all types of quilting.
Adrienne?s background in the printing industry fueled her design aesthetic and
love of text on everything. Eventually, she co-founded a custom quilt company and went
on to develop her sewing passion (read stash) by working and teaching in quilt and
sewing shops. Imagine her joy at discovering embroidery machines and their ability to
stitch ?fonts?.
Currently, Adrienne is the National Product Educator at BERNINA of Canada. As a
125-year-old family-run company, BERNINA allows Adrienne to look back on the
historic sewing techniques she learned in childhood while experiencing arguably the
most technologically advanced sewing machines on the planet. Each day she shares her
love of sewing, embroidery, quilting, overlocking and design software with store owners
and the public alike.
