Instructor: Betty Stoltenburg
Instructor Bio: Betty has been digitizing embroidery designs for almost 20 years. When BERNINA introduced the Q-series with Q-matic Longarm Quilting Automation System, her mind went directly to WOW, this can be so much more than a quilting machine! She has been a member of the BERNINA Event Team since the first Sewapalooza events in 2014. In May 2016, she was given the opportunity to present the Longing for a Longarm event along with the Sewapalooza events and Creative Academy Fear No Fabric events. In 2018, Betty joined the newly formed BERNINA Longarm Trade Show/Event team and to focus on the Q-series. Since then, she has been presenting the BERNINA Academy Creative Quilting event, working trade shows and teaching her own Q-matic/Art and Stitch classes. When she is not out presenting events, working trade shows or teaching local mastery classes, Betty is constantly developing new projects to hone creative skills. Her sewing studio is now complete with a BERNINA 170, 200, B 880 PLUS, L 220, 1100DA, Leo the Longarm (Q24 on a classic frame with Q-matic) and her newest addition the BERNINA E16 embroidery machine. She still loves all things BERNINA and gets the most gratification from seeing that ?aha? moment when someone finally gets what they have been struggling with on their machine or technique!
