Julie is the National Product Educator for BERNINA New Zealand.  Her role involves teaching sewing technology, both old and new, to BERNINA Sewing Centre owners and staff, teachers and consumers.  Julie has a natural talent to educate, and her classes are always fun and full of laughter.

Combining her passion for craft with new technology, enables Julie to teach all aspects of sewing, including thread artistry, quilting, machine embroidery, and software.

Julie is a talented artist in her own right and has been lucky enough to turn her passion into her profession.  Her mediums tend to be thread and fabric although Julie also enjoys ceramics.  Julie’s work has been recognised with awards at Calico Christmas and being featured in Magazine Articles.

Julie will be teaching the Bernina Ruler Work Class with Rebecca Owen.


We will provide all materials, this will consist of everything the students need, a prepared project, thread, machine needles and rulers for use in class. 

Students will need to bring a fat quarter size (maximum) quilt sandwich to use for practicing on, their preferred marking pen/pencil/method i.e., Tailors Chalk, chalk pencil, erasable pen, and a small ruler or tape measure and quilting gloves.
