BERNINA USA is looking far and wide for three US-based Brand Ambassadors to experience and help spread the word for their new BERNINA 3 Series machine, so BurdaStyle has partnered with BERNINA on a competition to help find the best candidates for the job! BERNINA still wants to show some love to our community outside the US, so we made this a two-part competition.

Three weeks ago, we asked you guys to Show Us, Don’t Tell Us: How do you express your love for sewing? The result was an awesome selection of super creative videos!

We had so much fun watching them! It was tough, but we were able to narrow down your awesome entries to our top five.
