icon BERNINA ACADEMY EVENT INSTRUCTOR: Emily Dunlap Originally from the Midwest, Emily now calls Dallas Texas home.

She is new to the BERNINA Event Team in 2021 but has a long history with BERNINA machines and teaching. Her background is in sculpture and fine arts, however, she traded her welder for a BERNINA and never looked back.

Her passion for sewing is contagious. In a unique reversal of roles, she taught her grandmother how to quilt and has since taught many others. Emily has a few simple rules for quilting: measure twice, cut once, don’t point out your flaws, there are always more quilts to make, and the right tools make ALL the difference.

Emily worked at a multi-brand dealership before becoming an educator and knows how to make BERNINA shine against the competition, although she admits it’s not that hard. While her time is mostly spent quilting, she is excited to share techniques with embroidery machines and overlockers as well. She believes learning should be fun and can’t wait to create with you.
