NEWS FLASH!

NATALIE IS LEAVING US!
COME TO HER FAREWELL OPEN HOUSE ON JUNE 6th
Natalie has decided to move back to her "other" home....Switzerland. We are all going to miss her!! She has provided her warm personality and a tremendous wealth of knowledge about everything Bernina, so you may be wondering just what we are going to do with the gap that she will leave. Not to worry, we will have another surprise in store for you soon, (watch for another email announcement) but for now we want to honor Natalie.
WE WILL BE HOSTING AN OPEN HOUSE IN NATALIE'S HONOR ON THURSDAY, JUNE 6th . Please stop by during business hours (8:30 to 5:30) for some light refreshments and to wish her well as we say goodbye to Natalie. We are all going to miss that big, warm smile of hers!

TIP OF THE MONTH
Threads, threads, everywhere threads! What do you do with all those bits of threads from your sewing and embroidery? Do you always manage to hit the little garbage can? Or do they end up on the floor, like many of mine do? For many years I have been trying to put them into my pretty glass bowl. (Check out the Goodwill!) Yup. I save them. At least the ones that don't end up on the floor! When the bowl gets full I transfer them to a box that is currently FULL of bits of thread. And frequently I even unload a bobbin when I need that bobbin filled with another color. If you are an embroiderer, you know how quickly you snip, snip, snip those threads! And someday, I will layer these threads between water soluble stabilizer and create something wonderful. But for now, I faithfully fill the bowl! How about you? Why not give this a try? 
DO YOU OWN A BERNINA 830 OR 820QE?

Would you consider trading it in for a NEW Bernina 880 Plus or 790 Plus or perhaps the Bernina 770 QE?? We have a fabulous deal for you! Bernina is allowing us to offer you $5000 off MSRP on a new B880P or $4000 off MSRP on a new B790P….PLUS you will receive a gift package worth over $2800 with your trade-in. MY OH MY! You need to come in and talk to us! The gift includes Bernina Toolbox Monogramming Module, Big Book of Feet, Walking Foot with three soles, Set of five D feet, Accessory bag, USB stick with 600 embroidery designs, X-Large Machine suitcase and X-large Module Suitcase! WOWEE! Call or come in to find out about the offer for the B770 QE. We also have a special 60 month financing program available for you with this trade-in. This offer ends September 30th. 425-255-8673
TWEEZERS
They are not just for your eyebrows!
I have several types of tweezers in my sewing room. How about you? Bernina makes the BEST tweezers, in my opinion. They actually will grab that bit of embroidery thread that needs removing. I can get them in and under areas that are difficult to reach. I like to keep one on the wire thread holders above my overlocker so they are easy to reach. I have another one ALWAYS next to my sewing machine. I get real grumpy if I drop or misplace them! I guess It's always the little things, isn't it? I need another one....or two! Maybe you do too!

AND ANOTHER THING.....If you don't have one of these needle threader/inserter tools, COME SEE US AND PICK ONE UP! It makes it so easy to hold the needle in place as you insert it into your machine, and it is handy for threading your overlocker!
Don't miss this 6 month Christmas Quilt BOM! Actually it will be TWO blocks per month so you can get it done by Christmas. Patty will be teaching this needle-turn applique BOM. You will need to purchase your own fabrics and pattern. Cost of the class will be $20 per month. Stop by the store and see the progress Patty has made with this quilt!
