Now is certainly the time to let Santa know what Bernina Sewing Machine and Accessories you have on your list. Look below for great deals all season long!

Swiss engineering and an all metal frame go into this lightweight, entry-level machine, which guarantees that your love of sewing will be passed down for generations. Shop Cortez Quilt and More for affordable quality rather than the frustration and disposability found at big box stores.

We only have one B 770 Anniversary Edition in stock, and can't get any more!

We have one 880 Anniversary Edition, and one 790 Anniversary Edition in our store. There are no guarantees that more can be ordered, as stock is at this first come. Don't delay if you have your eye on one of these models, and the great gift package that it comes with.


BERNINA’s practical Magnifying lens set sharpens your view of the work area. The set contains three magnifying lenses of different strengths, enabling you to choose the most suitable magnification for the project at hand.

The lenses provide an optimum view when threading, and magnify the stitching area. This is especially helpful for precision sewing in tricky places. The magnifying lenses also make lighter work of embroidery, sparing your eyes and reducing fatigue. The Magnifying lens set also features a bracket (sold separately) for simple mounting to the sewing machine.

The Multiple spool holder can be mounted almost effortlessly on a wide range of sewing machines, and can also be switched between two machines with the greatest of ease. The holder has room for up to 15 spools, enabling quick access to threads of different colors. If need be, removing individual spool pins from the multiple spool holder creates room for larger spools as well as thread cones, enabling you to execute your sewing, embroidery and quilting projects more efficiently.

Quick access to a wide range of spools of different colors is a real time saver when working on multicolored embroidery designs.

Also, the multiple spool holder’s telescopic thread guide can be adjusted upwards: the thread has a longer path to the needle, allowing difficult threads like metallics to untangle and flow freely before they reach the start of the sewing process.


We are giving away a BERNINA 535! The drawing will be held December 22. There are a lot of ways to enter to win!
