BERNINA Club: For BERNINA Owners who have not purchased from Kate's Open Quilt Studio



For all BERNINA Owners. Learn more about your BERNINA and master new skills. Try out different feet, different features, and complete mini projects while spending the afternoon with other BERNINA owners


Winter 2024 Club focuses on Thread Painting and Thread Art featuring Stupendous Stitching - How to Make Fun and Fabulous Fiber Art book by Carol Ann Waugh.

We have kits available for this class, but if you already have an idea of what you want to create, then you can choose your own items. Each kit will come with 1 meter of fabric, a fiber & embroidery floss/embroidery cord, and a twin needle. You will need a fusible woven (if you do machine embroidery, it is possible you already own this item. If you do not, we brought in yardage for your project) for the fabric & a batting/ backing. The book recommends Fusible Fleece, so we will have meterage available at the Studio (or online) if you need it. 
For this class, there are a few nice to have (but only necessary if you think you will use these feet again) feet. They are listed below. If you own the Big Book of Feet, then these page numbers will help to reference what we are going to do specifically with each foot. 
BERNINA Owners: 
#7 Tailor Tack Foot: (pg 44 - 46 in Big Book of Presser Feet) we will use this to create fringe and fagoting 
#10 Edge Stitch Foot/#5 Blind Hem (comes with machine): (pg 52 - 58) inserting lace & ribbon 
#12 Bulky Overlock Foot: (pg 64-66) inserting cord & wool  fibers

#21 Braiding Foot: (pg 84 - 86) couching and custom cording creation (nice to have but not necessary)

#34 Clear Foot (pg 110 - 112) nice to have but not necessary

Bernette Owners: if you received the extra presser foot kit with your machine, you will have the cording foot with dual feed and the open applique foot. The other 2 feet require the universal presser foot attachment (what you need for the ruler work foot) to attach the b37/38 feet - beaded/sequence foot and piping foot.

How are orders packaged for shipping?
We will package your order in the most suitable way to secure the best shipping price and expediency of delivery. This means that when you order a fabric bundle, it will not necessarily arrive looking as it did on the shop website. For example, a fat quarter bundle that is folded and tied with a ribbon, stacked as a bundle, might be dismantled to make your package flatter to in order to keep shipping costs down as the larger the width of the package, the higher the shipping cost.

What if online inventory is inaccurate and you are unable to fulfill by order as intended?
