Instructor: Adrienne Gallagher
Instructor Bio: Adrienne learned the art of sewing and needlework from her mother and her paternal grandmother. Candlewicking, Hardanger, needlepoint, and cross-stitch all gave way to machine sewing when she miraculously won a sewing machine during her second year of university. The arrival of her first child was celebrated with a handmade quilt from a friend. This began her enthusiasm for all types of quilting. Adrienne?s background in the printing industry fueled her design aesthetic and love of text on everything. Eventually, she co-founded a custom quilt company and went on to develop her sewing passion (read stash) by working and teaching in quilt and sewing shops. Imagine her joy at discovering embroidery machines and their ability to stitch ?fonts?. In 2015, Adrienne landed her dream job as National Product Educator at BERNINA of Canada. As a 125-year-old family-run company, BERNINA allows Adrienne to look back on the historic sewing techniques she learned in childhood while experiencing arguably the most technologically advanced sewing machines on the planet. Each day she shares her love of sewing, embroidery, quilting, overlocking and design software with BERNINA dealers and the public alike.
