Millefiori Gathering 2017/2018 at Bernina World of Sewing

This Web page is aimed at being a central repository of information for our 2018 Millefiori Gathering. The Gathering is based upon Millefiori or La Passacaglia quilts involving hand-pieces with a running stitch as discussed in 2017 during a class taught at Bernina World of Sewing by Shirley Usry.

This Gathering will take place monthly, and started in September 2017, and continuing:

  • The last Monday of each month, 5:30-8:00pm.
    The next Millefiori Gathering is January 29, 2017

For participating in the Gathering, you are reminded that:

  • The Millefiori Gathering participants have participated in our Millefiori classes and wish to expand their experience.

  • For the 2018 Millefiori Gathering, a yearly fee of $30 is charged when the attendee commits to the Gathering.

  • Gathering participants, surely, interact. However, the Gathering is not a class . Each participant is expected to be able to manage his/her own project.

  • Gathering participants should bring to the Gathering what they need for sewing/cutting during the Gathering.

  • Due to the numerous options / aims / of each Gathering participant, space at the Gathering is limited.
    Gathering Participants must be pre-signed up. "Drop in" participants, due to classroom class size and machine space limitations will not be accommodated. Sorry!

  • If a Gathering participant decides to "drop out" of the 2018 Gatherings, it would be appreciated if that were known by the store; there may a wait-list and, if a Gathering slot opens - Persons on the wait-list will be notified of such.

Further information will be available on this Webpage and via eMail sent to Gathering participants.

The 2018 Millefiori Gathering is expected to be over-subscribed. At this time, there are four openings for this Gathering. If you wish more information about participating in the monthly 2017/2018 Millefiori Gathering (last Monday of each month), stop by the store (ask for Sonja - she will know of the matter) or:

Another fun / relaxing evening. And: Productive, even!

Have a good month.


September 2017

I am happy that I "re-discovered" hand-piecing. I enjoy hand-piecing and it will be a pleasure to be doing that together - with you. I look forward to the next 12 months of "Millefiori" as a complement to all of our other projects.
