New Fabric

The final installment of Four Seasons has arrived. The colors in this winter/Christmas themed collection are delicious. Two per panel, these designs measure approximately 24" x 24" and make great pillows and wall hangings. The coordinating bolts are lovely, too.


Winter Hours Start November 1

The days are about to get shorter (standard time resumes on November 5). This year, we've decided to adopt winter hours and will be closing at 5 p.m. from November 1 through February 28. On March 1 we'll go back to our usual nine-hour days, again staying open until 6 p.m.

Interesting Fact: Daylight savings time will return in 2018 on March 11. That means we now have only about four months of standard time each year.

Great Deals on Used Machines

Two customers recently upgraded to newer machines and traded in their older models. We rarely have used machines because so many BERNINA loyalists buy new ones but keep their current ones, or at least keep them in the family. At the moment we're fortunate to have the following to offer.

BERNINA 570 Quilter's Edition with Embroidery: This machine was purchased here about two years ago and has only 326,000 stitches on it. For point of reference, a BERNINA that's well taken care of can easily run for 20 million stitches, or more. This is very much a "like new" machine at a discounted price. Includes a BERNINA stitch regulator!

BERNINA Artista 730 with Embroidery: This is an older model BERNINA in excellent condition. It's been cleaned and serviced and is ready to go to a new home today!


Embroidery Module:
This demo embroidery module was used only in our showroom and is in perfect condition. If you've been thinking about adding embroidery to your BERNINA 750 or 770, don't miss this deal. BONUS: You'll get a free suitcase for the module with your purchase.

Note: We do not quote prices for sewing machines over the phone. Please come in to check out these amazing offers.
