About the Class
$33 (mandatory) available at Dave’s 435-656-1498
Doodling is the act of creating art in an un-stressful manner. It consists of repeating little designs over and over again until we can draw it with great ease and comfort really not having to think much about it at all. Free-motion is the art of doodling on a piece of fabric and given directions and ideas, you will be well on your way to making it an enjoyable habit. Only then will it can become relaxing and fulfilling. This class is intended to give you a little nudge to help you get on the creative side. Step by step instructions will come to you exclusively through Bernina’s own top educators like Annette Houston. You will receive inspiration to create free-motion designs for all occasions.
Annette started sewing at the age of 5. When her mother went to
answer the door, she finished the apron waistbands that were laying
before her. Ever since then she has enjoyed sewing with her Mother
and Grandmother without using patterns. She began altering clothing
and then making wedding dresses. Although she has 6 boys, she
taught ALL of them to sew, including a few daughters-in-law. She
managed a fabric store in Vegas until she moved back to Utah and
began commercial embroidery. That's when the whole world came
alive! She has been embroidering ever since. Some of her accomplishments have been embroidering for David Letterman, Bill Cosby,
Orange County Choppers, and Caroll Shelby's Cobra. Annette has a
little home-based business where she embroiders and long-arm
quilts. She currently enjoys teaching and has been part of the Dave's
Bernina family since 2013!
