The countdown is on to our Quilt For A Queen

We've been getting some great contributions in for our charity Quilt for a Queen project in aid of Friends of the Elderly and we wanted to share some of them with you. You still have time to become involved and you don't have to be an expert to take part. We need all contributions of squares no later than May 31st.

You can find out more about the great work of Friends of the Elderly by visiting their web site:

We've also had some other great news. Bogod & Company, which is our exclusive UK distributor, has been a proud holder of the Royal Warrant as suppliers of Sewing Machines to H.M. The Queen. And they have just found out that their warrant has been renewed - so time for a double celebration.

Don't scrap the scraps...turn them into something beautiful!

Do you often gind that you have a pile of scraps sitting on your cutting table just waiting to be put to good use? Bernina blogger Sharon Burgess did and she set about making this beautiful cushion with scraps that might otherwise have been thrown away. She has shared a tutorial on how to make the cushion - or adapt it for a table topper or mini-quilt. Just click here to access the project.
SPECIAL OFFER....Our Presser Foot of the Month

We're offering a 20% discount on our Foot of the Month right through until May 31st. 

And this month, it's the Bernina Braiding foot 21, which allows you to create fun decorative effects by couching down ribbons, cords and rickrack. You can use the beautiful decorative stitches from your machine to do this giving you a wide range of options. The bevelled hole in the foot allows you to use cords and yarns up to 3mm in diameter which are then neatly couched down.

Me & My Bernina

We're starting a new feature in this newsletter to find people who have been using their Bernina for a long time and still love it just as much as the day they got it. Julia Johnson from West Sussex sent this picture of her Bernina, which she received for her 21st birthday in 1964. She tells us it has been well used since then and she continues to use it, though mainly for repairing her boisterous grandsons' trousers these days. We were delighted to know that her Bernina continues to give Julia such great pleasure. 

If you want to share your Bernina story with us, simply click here to email us together with your picture. We will give a £25 voucher for our Bernina web shop for any that we use in our newsletters.
