Adoption Center

You could rescue a machine in need.

In these cold winter months, we've taken in a few non-BERNINA machines. Although they are not BERNINAs, they are still important and deserve a good home. Please call 331-472-4231 or stop in the store for more details.

In addition, for every Adoption Shelter machine sold, BERNINA of Naperville will donate $10 to Petfinderfoundation.com.


Embry is a sweet embroidery only machine who likes to work for long periods of time stitching on all kinds of materials while he watches you sew on your other machine. His birth name is B 700, but he answers to almost anything except "Oh S#!*"
