We were very honored to be included in this year's BERNINA Century Club,
which boasts the country's largest and most respected BERNINA Dealers.
We were able to achieve this because of you! Thank you so much for your loyalty and friendships that we share.

As a small token of our thanks, be sure to come by and have ice cream with us! (Immediately following the BU Recap Presentation).

Several years ago, (when Karen was still the owner), we sold a large, fabric die-cut machine to someone out there.
