The Sale is still on through this Saturday, July 9th!

This year, Bernina University is in the middle of July. We already know we will be taking advantage of many sales and specials that will be offered at BU to bring home new fabrics, machines, and notions. Because we need to make sure that we have room for everything new that will be coming in, we are going to be having a MASSIVE Christmas in July Sale. Beginning Tuesday, June 28 through Saturday, July 9, virtually everything store-wide will be on sale, up to 40% off, WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. (Sale prices do not apply to special orders, machine parts, service, or classes). All machines will be on sale with specials offered on all demo model machines, including longarms.

You’ve never seen a better opportunity to build your stash, get a new embroidery machine or travel machine, start your longarm business, or get those notions you’ve always wanted! Hurry in before your supplies are sold out.
Because you deserve it.



Dreams are made of a sewing station like this! Now is the chance for your dream to come true! From June 28th - July 9th, we have two demo models that we will be selling for $3000.00 (Regularly $5,000). Be sure to act fast, we only have two!

We sold the two, but actually have one more!



We are revamping our loyalty program with new cards and new discounts.  Plus, customers who qualify will be given a reusable Cortez Quilt Company bag that they can enjoy all year!

Shop at least three times between now and the fifth Saturday in July (July 30) to receive a free tote bag! (Or you can purchase a tote bag for $15.00).

Bring the tote to every 5th Saturday throughout the year and receive 20% off of everything you can stuff in the bag!

By the way... after July, you will need to shop six times to receive your bag, so hurry in now to participate!



In this course you will learn to master your BERNINA sewing machine. Learn to care for your machine, and how to use specialty functions to customize your machine’s setting’s to your needs. You will learn to use the most important utility stitches on your machine, along with the many creative options your machine offers, including decorative stitches, combi-mode, free-motion stitching and more. We will work step by step through hands-on activities. This class is for 4, 5, 7 & 8 Series machines.

Yes, indeed, we just offered this class, but already have several requests for a repeat...
This tote features so many pockets, compartments, and zippers that you’ll be the best organized person on your block when you carry it. Big enough to hold a laptop computer, tablet, or good old-fashioned books. Outside pockets on each end are great for a water bottle, umbrella, or phone. This is a two-day class for intermediate and above sewists.
