Meet the Instructors

Our custom tailored projects are designed for today's astute stitcher and quilter. We welcome all Bernina V7 Software owners in Ventura County and Santa Barbara County.

Hi I'm Diane


I fell in love with quilting twenty years ago when I saw an antique Grand Mothers Flower Garden quilt in a Ojai quilt shop. I have since made many, many quilts.

I am mostly self taught and love to piece and quilt my own quilts. In 2005 I began work at Barons Fabrics, Camarillo, where I sold fabric, Bernina Sewing Machines and Bernina Software.

By teaching embroidery project classes for a little over four years, I have learned many sewing techniques. Combining this experience with my quilting knowledge has broadened my sewing skills.

For five years I taught quilting classes, and helped teach Bernina Software classes.

Hi I'm Joan


I have been sewing since high school where we were required to have four years of sewing. After school I worked as a nanny, then married my husband, and began working in retail sales. I worked two years at International Silks and Woolens in Thousand Oaks, California, selling many types of kinds of fabrics.

After that store closed in the 1970s I worked at Baron's Fabrics in Camarillo, California, which allowed me to meet and help many people with their sewing issues.  During my thirty-three year career at Baron's, among my various responsibilities, I was in charge of the Home Deco Department at a time when people made home decorations and accessories.  

I also sold Bernina Sewing Machines, and fell in love with Bernina Software, in which I have had many years of training. I taught the Bernina Software classes for fifteen years.
