BERNINA of Naperville is opening in less than a month!

Coming November 1, a sewing store like none other...


Grand Opening Celebrations start Thursday, November 14!

November 14–17: There's gonna be lots of FREE Swag, FREE Food and FREE Classes!

Sign up for our mailing list to get the scoop on our epic grand opening.

Me again! Camilla Barker Bowles, world's best English Bulldog Blogger - I am trademarking that. Beginning Thursday, November 14 at 4:30pm, your magical sewing journey begins. BERNINA of Naperville (and me) cordially invite you to start the holiday season with rainbows, cupcakes, quilting and crafts (please let me have a cupcake)! In celebration of BERNINA of Naperville’s grand opening and the introduction of the Tula Pink Designed BERNINA 570 and B 770 Quilter’s Edition machines, we present our first ever “Unicorn Christmas!”

Thursday, November 14, 4:30 PM: Ribbon Cutting Ceremony 

The first 50 people in attendance will receive a BERNINA of Naperville mug loaded with every sewist’s favorite, a mug rug project and Le Chocolat sipping chocolate! We will also be giving tours of the store along with short demos of our products and capping things off with a champagne toast!

 

Friday, November 15, 10AM: Our Sew-A-Thon begins!
All you need is two minutes for two seams (and probably thumbs) to make a beautiful lap quilt for our friends and patients at Alden of Waterford in Aurora. Help us let them know that we care about them by making something beautiful to get them through a difficult time.

The sew-a-thon will go through Sunday, November 17 at 4PM 
Don’t worry, time is precious… Join us when you can. We may need a back up generator to make our goal of 10 quilts in three days!

Special thanks go to BENARTEX Fabrics for pre-cut fabric strip donations.

 

Saturday, November 16, 
11AM – Noon:


Hurry, our little unicorns can only come out for brief encounters! Kids photos with real-life UNICORNS! Wally and Tex are here to pose for photos with your kids.

They weren't actually born unicorns, but they were born to lift spirits and bring smiles to your faces!

Come early and make a Unicorn Party headband and ensure Edward Weiland Photography is able to capture a photo  before they have to go back to their magical land of enchantment.

When they’re not playing Unicorns at BERNINA of Naperville, Wally and Tex spend their time at Angel Hooves Healing Hearts. A charity which uses their miniature therapy horses to offer comfort when needed and bring smiles to the faces of those they meet, both young and old.

Wally and Tex Work for tips! Make sure you show your appreciation for their acting talents by tipping them when they pose for a photo. All tips benefit the Angel Hooves Healing Hearts charity.

***Note: I, Camilla Barker Bowles also dress in costume and can stay out as long as I want! - Just putting that out there.

 

 FRIDAY AND SATURDAY (11/15 - 11/16) DEMONSTRATION SCHEDULE

BERNINA of Naperville welcomes all sewists. We want to nurture your passion for garments, cosplay, quilting, home décor, fiber art and more by empowering you with the highest-quality products, education, and customer support.
Tula Pink Special Edition Machine Demos
Every 30 minutes from 2PM - 4PM


Meet the Unicorns of sewing machines, The B 570 QE and B 770 QE Tula Pink editions. In this 30-minute quickie class, you will make a Key Fob using the unique decorative stitches found on these machines.

 Industrial Embroidery Machine Demos
Every 30 minutes from 5PM - 7PM


Bring home a stitched free-standing lace book marker, designed by OESD,  embroidered on our sixteen-needle embroidery machine, the BERNINA E 16.

***Note: This is so easy, even this bulldog can do it!

With 16 needles, speeds of up to 1,400 stitches per minute (spm), automatic tension settings, and a narrow cylindrical arm—the BERNINA E 16 will complete the task like a pro—whether embroidering a jacket back or small pocket.

BERNINA Longarm Quilting Machine Demos
Every 30 minutes from 5PM - 7PM


Everything about the longarm quilting machines from BERNINA is amazing and we want to share the wonder with you. Whether you prefer to move the machine yourself or make your friends think you can opperate it by mind control, we can make it happen. We will start on the Q 20 sit-down machine in the lift cabinet and work our way to the larger, Q 24 on the frame with Q-matic automation.

***Note: I am too short to reach this machine, given that it has long arms, and I have short arms, being an English Bulldog.


  TWO PERCENT OF SEWING MACHINE PROFITS GIVEN TO THE RED CROSS

We are committed to our local community, but we can’t sit back while other communities suffer. Help us help the people of Puerto Rico,the Virgin Islands and the Bahamas. From November 14-17, 2% of all sewing machine sale profits will go to the Red Cross for hurricane relief.
