My Story

.Elsabe has always loved being creative and started creating her own garments from her teens. She has explored and investigated all the aspects from the creative and design aspects of the fashion industry and brings this knowledge and experience to her customers and classes.

In 2011 she opened Bernina Edenvale, offering sewing classes for quilters and dress makers as well as the full range of Bernina products and accessories. Bernina Edenvale has always been more than just a retail store but is a vibrant, happy and creative place for anyone with an interest in sewing, dressmaking, design or just needing creative advice and inspiration.

In 2016 she became the sole supplier for Sure-Fit Designs Pattern Fitting System in South Africa and received her Sure-Fit Designs™ training directly in the USA from international sewing educator and fitting expert, Glenda Sparling. She is certified to sell, train and support the full range of Sure-Fit Designs™ products in South Africa.

During the COVID-19 Lockdown she started her YouTube channel that provides Sewing Tips and Tricks and inspiration to everyone even remotely interested in fashion design and sewing. She also offers online Design and Sew Along classes and she is successfully providing training to customers from all over the world.

In addition to the above she is sourcing unique and creative accessories internationally for the creative sewer and quilter in South Africa via this online portal. The range is continuously growing to include product ranges for sewing, beading, textile design and all things creative.


I'm always happy to hear from you.
