BERNINA 330 First Love Special Addition

Are you looking for a Graduation Gift for someone as the 2017/18 School Year winds down?

How about a gift that lasts? I asked a store staff person about a machine that would last for a LONG time and be perfect for quilt classes as well as general sewing.

Answer: The BERNINA 330 First Love Special Addition

MSRP $1,399 (Ask the store for current sales going on)
For online information for the machine, click on:
BERNINA USA Webpage Information for 330-SE-First-Love

Why not discuss such a gift with your upcoming Graduate - and, bring him/her to the store for a try-yourself session?

Send me a note if you would like me to arrange a try-yourself session with you and your graduate: send mail to: BWOS330TryWithYourGraduate at Bernina World of Sewing dot com
