My BERNINA Story | Jennifer

We get asked all the time why we chose BERNINA. The answer is easy .. it’s the best!

We got our first BERNINA almost 10 years ago right after we started making things and selling them on Etsy. Mom always wanted to get a BERNINA and knew they were the best but it wasn’t until we really got into sewing things that we decided if we were going to do this, we needed to do it right.

After getting the BERNINA, mom kept it at her house and I bought a rather pricey Singer .. it’s the brand she had prior although hers was a much older one. We didn’t know at the time that they just don’t make Singer machines like they used to.

We got to sewing and making samples and mom’s items always turned out better than mine. My seams weren’t straight … my tension was funky … the stitches just looked bad. I just assumed that it was because I was a newer sewer and it was frustrating!

She finally let me take the BERNINA home one weekend and everything changed. Overnight my seams were straight .. I didn’t have to fight the tension .. the dress turned out so pretty! When I showed people they couldn’t believe that I had sewn it and I was very proud. I couldn’t believe what a difference a good machine made!

Thankfully this was right around the time that we got the BERNINA dealership and I didn’t have to wait long to get a BERNINA of my very own. Now I can’t imagine ever having a machine that wasn’t a BERNINA!

My first BERNINA was an Artista 430 that I had to share with mom. My first BERNINA that was mine, all mine, was a 350 Special Edition.

We would love to hear your BERNINA story! Email us your story and picture if possible and we’ll feature it on the blog. We’ll randomly pull one story and that person will win a $25 gift certificate to Lola Pink.



Special Edition BERNINA 350 – Cotton + Steel

Bright, colorful, playful, gorgeous, simply breath-taking … this year BERNINA teamed up with the ladies of Cotton + Steel and came up with two crazy cool Special Editions.


I thought last year’s Tula Pink version was going to be hard to beat .. but the C +S ladies really outdid themselves with the Hello, Lovely and I Love Sewing versions. How could you not smile every time you sat down to sew at one of these machines!


I really can’t decide which one is my favorite.


Did I mention they come with a special accessory package too? The everyday B350 comes with a shank and snap on soles. While OK .. they aren’t the full shank presser feet that BERNINA is know for. The full shank feet are so much more precise and durable than the shanks. Plus snap on soles are so much easier for me to lose track of. The full shank feet fit nicely into the accessory closet that I bought to go with mine.

You get 7 full-size presser feet .. #1 Reverse Pattern, #3a Automatic Buttonhole, #4 Zipper, #5 Blind Hem, #20 Open-toe Embroidery, #37 1/4″ Patchwork, and #50 Walking Foot (a $200 value!).

These machines are only available for a short time and in an even shorter quantity. We are currently taking pre-orders at a special introductory price. If you want one, call us today and stake your claim. I imagine these machines will sell just as quickly as the Tula Pink version did which means if you snooze you could very well lose.
