About The Instructor-
Lorena Corzatt  
My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 12 and stayed with her for the summer.  I sewed almost all of my own clothes in junior high and high school.  Then of course, as life got busier, I sewed less but in the early 2000s I purchased a BERNINA sewing machine.  I discovered quilting though one of the Quilt in a Day books.  I started in late November and finished two double bed quilts for Christmas.  They certainly weren’t perfect but I am proud to say they are still in service!


Since then, I have worked in a quilt store sewing many store samples and teaching quilting classes as well as working for our BERNINA dealer.  Working for The Sewing Works has led me into teaching our new owner classes and Westalee Ruler work.  I have taught the Quilt As You Go class several times and love the “Aha!” moment when quilters realize they can quilt their own tops and not have to hand it off to someone else to get great results.    

  The last quilt like a PRO event with Brother was a really FUN and relaxed learning event! Call now to get your space for the BERNINA quilt like a PRO event!
