BERNINA University 2014
This past summer I traveled to Nashville, TN along with hundreds of BERNINA associates, dealers, and brand enthusiasts to take part in their annual dealer event: BERNINA UNIVERSITY. The event was held in the Opryland Resort, a spectacular space that includes secret gardens, waterfalls, eateries, boat rides, and was home to fanatical sewing enthusiasts for an entire week!
Are you wondering what happens at BERNINA University? I wish I could tell you but what happens at BU- stays at BU. Just kidding! BERNINA University is part convention, part class, and full on fun. With cocktails, fancy swag, and plenty of new products- it's an event you don't want to miss! While there I sat in on some sewing classes instructed by the most experienced and entertaining teachers, hung out with my industry friends, and taught 2 classes of my own!
Nashville is known for a few things- country music and BBQ are the first to come to mind. My son is a HUGE fan of the TV show American Pickers and their Nashville location along with the Johnny Cash Museum were on my list of places to see while in town. Unfortunately I didn't get to visit either, but discovered the World Famous Tootsie's Orchid Lounge.
