Instructor Bio: SHELLY FITZGERALD Hayden Lake, Idaho Shelly Fitzgerald comes into your event or classroom with a mixture of enthusiasm and knowledge that quickly attracts and holds the interest of the participants. From overlocking to software, garment sewing to machine embroidery, quilting to home dec, Shelly has a love and understanding of the topics and the BERNINA machines, software, feet and accessories that accomplish each task. Sewing and crafting all of her life allows years of experience to be passed on in a lively and informative way. She freely admits to reading all the manuals for pleasure and then loves teaching what she has learned to her classes. Bringing the out of the ordinary to front and center by encouraging everyone to change their settings (gasp!), use a punch tool (eek!) ruffle, ruffle, ruffle (wow!) and sew with their left foot (no way!) she shows how easy it is to kick it up a notch or two by using any BERNINA product to its full potential. She makes it fun, not hard and leaves everyone excited about their new tools and skills. Through her company, Sew Shelly Quilts, LLC, Shelly creates and presents original patterns and classes to bring the extended capabilities of all of the BERNINA products to life. Her classes are rich with techniques and software is her passion. Since 2014 Shelly has been a member of the BERNINA Event Team which has brought you Sewaplaooza and BERNINA Academy. YouTube is another favorite way of Shelly?s to engage stitch enthusiasts world wide. Her channel can be found at WWW.YOUTUBE. COM/SEWSHELLYQUILTS where she has many up close videos on techniques that can be used with various materials, machine feet, The BERNINA 880 Plus, BERNINA V8 and V9 Embroidery software, her beloved Q20 and now her newest love the L890.
