One thing most people do not know about Aimee is that she loves donkeys, especially the miniature version. The exciting part, and how this fact effects you, is that Santa decided the King Family has been especially nice this year, and sent one of his festive Christmas donkeys to celebrate the Season with us for a week. Introducing Domino - isn't he as cute as possible with his reindeer antlers? Domino couldn't possibly pack enough gifts for everyone we know since he is coming all the way to Colorado by himself, so Santa came up with a great plan. Each morning, starting this Friday, December 14 - Friday, December 21, Domino will be announcing special savings that our customers at Cortez Quilt Company and More can take advantage of that particular day!

Domino does not know for sure what time he will be arriving, so we will announce here now the specials to expect the first two days:

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.

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.

This B710 has been back in the classroom of Cortez Quilt Company and More, and has stitched a lot of the beautiful projects found in the store. It is time for us to upgrade, so we are offering this machine at the special price of $3,000. We provide a one year warranty and mastery classes for all of our previously owned machines.

If you are looking for a workhorse - this machine is for you! This machine has all the BERNINA qualities that people have come to love. Priced at $400 - this machine is ready to come create whatever project you have in mind.
