Instructor Bio: Betsy Carlson is beginning her eighth year on the BERNINA Event Team, starting on the domestic machine side, then joining the longarm team. A BERNINA owner for 31 years, Betsy is lucky enough to own an original B 730 sewing machine, gifted by the family who owned Betsy's favorite fabric store as a teenager, that happened to also be a BERNINA dealer. At the time, Betsy was already sewing professionally in an alteration shop and sewing most of her clothes. Betsy currently has five vintage BERNINAs in addition to her B 880 PLUS, overlockers, E16 embroidery machine and a BERNINA Longarm. She is convinced BERNINAs like to live in family units. Right now, Betsy's focus is quilting with her BERNINA Q 24 Longarm with Q-matic, completing tops for herself and customers. But she also has made custom clothing to order, slipcovers, custom quilts, improvisational quilts, bags, and pretty much anything comprised of fabric. Combining her love of travel and BERNINA, Betsy works with BERNINA dealers presenting events and working at quilt shows across the country. With the right equipment, she can help anyone improve their stitching skills. 2021 is going to be a great year for all the new sewists who have recently emerged, and Betsy looks forward to meeting with many of them to demonstrate what a precision machine can do to help them create beautiful quilts.
