About Bonnie From BDZines

Who is Bonnie Wilkinson? I live in a very quiet little town, Alanson which is located in Michigan, USA. I am very happily married to a wonderful man and have two daughters.


I have been sewing for the last 55 years. I have loved sewing at a very young age. I won my first 4-H blue ribbon and State Fair ribbon when I was 5 years old. Sewing and embroidery are my passion. A day does not go by that I am not behind the sewing or embroidery machine at least a few hours a day. I was introduced to Embird several years ago.  I know first hand how frustrating it was for me when I first opened my program. I bought a book, read the manual, and tried to do some lessons but I was more confused when I finished the lesson than  I was before I started. I decided I was going to learn the program on my own.  I have been producing video lessons to teach others how to use the Embird program because I told myself  I did not want others to feel the frustrations I felt.  I started to offer classroom sessions for Embird  around the state then I branched out to other states.  I met many students and watched them learn the program the easy way with all the "whys" and "where fores".  I loved the classroom situations but I was not reaching as many people who wanted to learn the program but only found myself living out of a suitcase way too much.  I missed my family and home life.  The summers were spent on the road or in airport terminals way too much.  I had to find a better way to get the information out everyone who wanted to learn the program so I started to produce the videos and sell them online.  My web site was the answer,  I can now reach more people all over the world that could not make it possible to attend a classroom session.  The videos provides my students the feeling of me being in the chair right next to them leading them step by step along the learning curve no matter what day of the week it may be, no matter what time of day or night, no matter where in the world they live in their own comfortable home without going anyplace and the best part...they can watch and learn the lessons over and over again if they want to return to the lesson for a refressher.  This has proven the best route for me and the students.  I am able to reach many more people, young or senior, male or female, across town or around the world with the downloadable videos or a CD/DVD that I  mail out the through the US Post Office.  My students start in the same frustrated state that I was in so I could relate with them, feel their stress and frustration as they learn the learning curve of the program. If you own Embird you owe it to yourself to check out my lessons.  I do not believe in leaving out information or telling my students to "click here, click there" and then presto you will have a design.  I feel everyone needs to know all the why and how you get from point A to point B instead of click, click, click.
It is my hope hope you learn the Embird Program with minimal frustrations.  IF you ever need an answer or a little more help with your question just remember I am only an email away. 
Now, put on your jammies, grab your favorite beverage and a snack,  check out my lessons to see if I can help you take away the frustrations. 

Have fun learning
