Machines donated at Cortez Quilt Company will be repaired if needed and given to WINGS Safehouse, a local organization serving victims of domestic violence.

If getting a good deal and doing a good deed isn't enough to entice you, we have more! During this promotion we are offering 0% financing for 60 full months (on approved credit) for BERNINA purchases of $3,000 or more. Use your current BERNINA credit card of apply for one while shopping for your new machine. We'll have an answer on your credit application within a few minutes. You can pay off your sewing machine anytime without penalty. We also have 18 month 0% financing available for BERNINA purchases between $1,000 and $3,000.

Our occasional Sewing Sunday events have become quite popular. They’re relaxing and fun and everyone accomplishes so much in just a few hours without the distractions of home! Bring any project you’re working on (or a UFO that you really want to finish!) and meet other sewers/quilters. Come after church or after you finish your morning chores at home. Take an afternoon just for you! Sewing Sundays are always free but space is limited so reserve your spot soon. We provide light refreshments.
