Bernina Sewing News
Happy New Year!
I would like to take a moment to thank all of you for your patronage, not only for the past year, but for the past 30 years. I became a Bernina Dealer on January 1, 1983. It has been an exciting and rewarding 30 years.
Thirty years ago, I could not have imagined the innovation and technology that we are seeing today in the Bernina sewing world. As I reflect over the thirty years, I realize that without all of you, my wonderful and loyal customers, and my staff, my store could not have grown and prospered into the thriving business it is today. Later in January, we will have a thirty-year celebration. Stay tuned for details.
My staff and I wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. We have a lot of exciting classes and activities planned for 2013, and we look forward to serving you.

New fabric is added daily on our website. Also, we have most of our kits available on our website. This is a convenience, especially for our out of town customers; you can still shop at your favorite Bernina store even if you are a snow bird or simply cannot make it in. We offer free shipping in the continental US on purchases over $50.

Connie is very accommodating about special ordering merchandise in for you if we do not carry it in the store or have run short. We usually give you a call as soon as your order has come in and set it aside for you. All special orders should be picked up within 30 days of notification (or sooner). If you cannot make it in, please notify us and maybe we can mail it to you. Thank you!
New Products In Store and Online
We have new products for quilting, sewing and serging, machine embroidery, and embroidery software. We have tons of quilting fabric online for those of you that live out of town or just prefer shopping at home. Be sure to check all out our huge selection of beautiful quilting fabric lines.
Are You Receiving the Newsletter?
To make sure you don't miss any Bernina news, please let us know when you change your email address. If you haven't been getting our emails, check to make sure our address is in your address book or whitelist so your spam filter doesn't block us. You can update your email or mailing address on our subscription page. Your subscription will be updated, not duplicated.
In addition to the quarterly email newsletter, we send out news flashes when we have surprise sales or events. Since we don't mail out a printed newsletter anymore, you really should sign up so you don't miss out! Even the coupons can be printed online for your convenience.
Classes and Clubs
It's easy to sign up for classes online so don't miss out just because you forgot to call or stop by while we're open to register for a class. We appreciate you purchasing your class supplies from our Bernina Store so that we may continue offering exciting, new classes. Thank you!
If you've recently purchased a Bernina, our Mastering Your Bernina Sewing Machine classes, Mastering Your Bernina Serger classes, or our brand new Mastering Your 8 Series Bernina Sewing Machine are just what you need to get up to speed. In fact, many of us have had our Berninas for years and never learned to use them to their full potential—these classes are for you too! You don't have to worry about missing a session since these classes are offered on an ongoing basis so you can pick them up anytime.
Join us at any or all of our monthly club meetings to learn quick tips and techniques. All clubs are free!
