Teri’s entertaining style makes learning interesting and fun

With over 20 years’ experience teaching and using BERNINA software, Teri takes joy in encouraging people of all ages to be inspired by learning how to be successful with their machines and software programs — and she takes pride in their results.

Teri says: “With embroidery software, I believe you must know why to pick that particular tool, not just what the tool does . . . my software teaching style is tool-based, not project-based. My hope is that you become as passionate and knowledgeable about your software as I am.”

Teri first purchased the BERNINA Customizer Designer V1 in 1998 to make a Baltimore Album Quilt for her husband and began teaching software classes using V3. She did finish the Baltimore Album quilt using the tools in V4, but gave the quilt to a church for auction. The new tools in V8 have inspired her to make another quilt for her patient husband, so stay tuned! She fine-tuned her diverse sewing and embroidery skills by working and teaching at a multi-store BERNINA dealership for more than 15 years.

A sought-after speaker who continues to teach around the USA about all things embroidery, she has years of experience with multiple machine brands, sewing, quilting, threads and needles.

A properly digitized design is only the beginning of your adventure. “I’ll also teach you about needles, stabilizers and thread,” Teri says, “so you will be crossing the finish line with knowledge and style!”

“Teri is enthusiastic and motivating. She keeps up with the growing sophistication of the sewing/fabric crafting machines and constantly updates her instruction to take advantage of the software.”

What’s in a name?
2 MANY Lizards

It’s not a name that makes you think of machine embroidery or digitizing software — unless you have taken classes from Teri.

The lizard is from the BERNINA artwork folder, and it has been the perfect graphic for my beginning class exercise for creating designs from graphics. For example, the lizard graphic has a thick outline, common with many graphics, so it is a great exercise for how to create thin outlines.

Through the years and the different versions of the BERNINA embroidery software, I continued to use the lizard graphic in my beginning digitizing classes. My software classes were nicknamed by stores and students alike, as “The Lizard,” “The Cactus” and “The Magnolia,” instead of using my published class name, such as “Graphics to Designs.” There have been four versions of “The Lizard” class, hence the name “2 Many Lizards.”

My students love to tell me how many lizards they had done as a way to know how many versions they have used. My computer (and my husband) would tell you there are too many lizards in my life!
