I'm so excited because I'm attending a 'know your machine' class for my Bernina. Although I'm really familiar with all the features and have been sewing away happily on this beautiful sewing machine, I'm always up for free classes and the reading material that comes with it. I'm certainly open to learning new things, tips, tricks and instructors always have something to add to one's knowledge!
I am a quilter and don't really do much utility stitching. I think the class goes through topics like buttonholes and various feet that I wouldn't usually use so I could definitely use some coaching in those departments. Apparently there is a binder given with resource material that I can reference in the future. I figure if I didn't attend the class I would be missing out on a valuable part of the purchase price - and it should be fun! I will meet other Bernina users and enjoy a few hours out (the classes are 4 hours long and there are two). The times happened to work out perfectly with my schedule too, which is jam packed and crazy for the next 5 weeks!
