 Meet Joanne Leonard...

Joanne’s love for BERNINA is infectious. Sit in front of a machine with
Joanne and she will show you more features than you knew existed!
Drawing on the knowledge she gained through eight years working and
teaching in a successful BERNINA dealership, she loves to help sewists
match their sewing style and techniques to the perfect machine. You
will be excited to get that machine home and start many new projects.
But then she goes above and beyond, showing how to customize the
settings on the machine to their specific needs and really let those
BERNINA features shine! For several years Joanne has taught new owner
mastery classes and helped take the fear out of sitting in front of a new
machine. Joanne loves to share tips, tricks and answer any questions
in a style that makes the customer feel comfortable asking questions;
she believes there is no learning curve that patience and understanding
can’t overcome! She loves to demo and wow customers with BERNINA
features. Joanne will share her knowledge (and her mistakes!) that have
led to her growth as a sewist.
Joanne has been sewing since she was five years old. Although her
mom and aunts didn’t let her use a sewing machine early on, she
could hand piece some fancy Barbie clothes. Her first job was at a big
box store that had the same name as her. She was a garment sewist
for years then moved on to quilting and other crafts. Over the years
Joanne has taught many sewing and craft classes to include BERNINA
Club, Block of the Months, Tucker University and many quilt classes.
She has assisted in large events such as two Kaffe Fassett workshops
and BERNINA Academies. She will make your events fun and informative.
Joanne was a partner in a startup to teach refugees to sew for
profit. She believes language is not a barrier in sharing and teaching
the love of sewing.
Whether you are looking to host a special event or simply provide your
customers with an outstanding educational experience, Joanne will
inspire your love of sewing!
