If you have been wanting to upgrade to a 790+ I have a steal in my possession right now. This machine was purchased at a trade show by one of our travelers and she came back here to she shop, saw the 880+ and fell in love with it and traded me the 790+ (Brand New) to upgrade! I have to sell it as a used machine! I can drop the price as low as $8K for this one machine only. It is not eligible for other offers as it was redeemed for the cabinet already!
I also have two of the 500 series machines that are going for rock bottom pricing! They are the previous generation machines and I need to move them out! The first is a 570 Quilter’s Edition meaning it comes with a BSR. The MSRP is $4,399 – Our Price $3,000! The BSR alone is worth $1K.
The second machine is the 580 with an embroidery module. The MSRP on that machine $6,799 and I have it marked down to $4,500!
Remember that the Bernina Christmas Specials still apply to my existing inventory. I have two 770 eligible for gift with purchase and one 880+!
LEARN YOUR MACHINE (ANY BRAND!): Something for all of our friends who need a jump start getting back into sewing! This class is designed to provide basic sewing machine operation and maintenance. If you have a machine that you haven't used in a long time, or is "new to you" (inherited, purchased 2nd hand, or purchased from a source that provides no lessons), then this class may be exactly what you need. We will help you with how to thread your machine, change the needle, fill a bobbin, and show you how to clean and oil it, as well as discuss the basics of how a sewing machine functions.
Note: This class is NOT an in-depth exploration of what your machine can or cannot do, nor will we address buttonholes, decorative stitches, or zipper insertion. It is also not a course in sewing machine repair. Your machine must be running properly for you to benefit from this class. A manual for your machine will be very helpful. All machine types are welcome! Michelle Jones will be teaching.
Waterwheel (2 Day Course): Canceled to be reschedule later in the year!

OESD SCHOOL OF EMBROIDERY CLASSES: WE HAVE OPENED A SECOND CLASS TOMORROW! We no longer have “embroidery club.” We have purchased the Oklahoma School of Embroidery (OESD) certifications for our staff and are now participating in the training courses for our customers. Designs are included and not purchased separately. There may be months with kits, but we will do our best to let you use your own materials. We scheduled for the 3rd Tuesday monthly. I know that in January Barbara is teaching trapunto quilting! Picture on web site. Date this month is on 1/23 since there was a conflict with the Waterwheel class.
