Hi! I am happy to present you my first project on the Bernina blog”My Perfect Planner”.
Creating handmade planners and notebooks is my passion and I want to share it with you and involve you in the process!
Making your own planner is much easier than it seems! I invite you to join my online studio and create your first planner in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere with my assistance.
As a big lover of handmade things I surround myself with everything that inspires and brings joy. A planner has become my everyday accessory. So once I decided to create one of my own design and using technology which I have developed after some years of doing projects in my studio.
I am happy to share the process of creation here with you and hope you will enjoy it.
I’d be grateful if you subscribe to my channel and click the bell and share your projects on instagram mentioning me @evgeniakolegova
I did my best to make it all as clear and well-organised to you as possible.
