  • Sew-in Day 

Our first sew-in day at Bernina will be January 17, 2020 from 10 AM to 4 PM. Bernina We’re in Stitches shop is located at 2310 E. North Street, Ste A, Greenville, SC. Your admission is to purchase ½ yd of fabric from Bernina and contribute it to “the pot.” Each attendee then places their name in a basket for a drawing to win all the ½ yard cuts.  Bring your machines and a project to work on and enjoy getting to know old and new members of the guild while learning and having loads of fun. If you have never been to Bernina’s there is much to see from a terrific selection of fabrics to beautiful finished quilts in the sewing room.
(Thanks to our Sew in Coordinators, Sandy Helsel & Rita Sassone. Our Sew-in /days will be held the third Friday of every other month.)
