Linda Wenturine

Linda has been sewing since she was 10 years old when her grandmother taught her how
to use a sewing machine. She began making doll clothes and then moved on to garment
sewing. This sewing journey continued through college where Linda studied accounting and
marketing at Saginaw Valley State University in northern lower Michigan. Along the way
she has shared her passion and knowledge working for a major fabric store chain, and
teaching sewing and quilting classes to adults. Her most rewarding teaching experience
was the 4 years she taught Jr. High sewing. After that she worked for a BERNINA
dealership for 15 years as an educator and sales associate. Linda also managed one of the
BERNINA Corporate stores before becoming a BERNINA Educator in 2005. All of these
experiences have allowed her to increase her knowledge and skills while having the
opportunity to work with the best. Linda's goal is to share her love of sewing and the
BERNINA brand. Sewing began as a hobby, then evolved into an obsession and now is her
career. She is constantly looking at what everyone is doing in the sewing world as she
searches for new information and inspiration       
Aaron Hoskins

Hello everyone! I am Designer, Blogger, Educator Aaron Hoskins. I have been sewing and have worked in the sewing industry for about 10 years and have traveled the US teaching as a Certified Ambassador of Education with Baby Lock since August 2016. My interest’ expand from all things sewing, quilting, serging, and crafting. To sum it up, I am like a pin-ball released into the wildest game you can think of.
My interest in sewing came from a desire to learn how to sew a rolled hem onto a napkin, and the rest is history. Growing up, my grandfather owned a custom cabinet and wood working business. I learned to appreciate quality craftsmanship and hard work from him. He took utmost pride in his work and I show my own pride in every stitch I make. I look forward to meeting you along the way, until then, happy sewing!
