BERNINA Ambassador Reunion

I recently attended the BERNINA Ambassador reunion in Aurora, Illinois.  It was a great experience! I was introduced to new products, received training at the center, met other ambassadors and the BERNINA staff, and toured the BERNINA and Brewer Sewing and Quilting facility.  Here are a few pictures from my tour - not the best quality since I just used my phone!

Another view - WOW!
