The Story of BERNINA
Friedrich Gegauf (1860-1926) settled in Seckborn, Switzerland in 886. His first mechanical workshop was in the building of a former nunnery, where he produced monogram embroidery units of his own creation. Friedrich's innovative thinking and attention to detail defined the BERNINA qualtiy that continues to this day under the direction of his great-grandson, Hanspeter Ueltschi.
Who is BERNINA?
BERNINA is an independent family business and they want to remain as such. They develop, manufacture and sell top-quality goods and services for the textile market. They consider the development, manufacture and marketing of domestic sewing and embroidery systems as well as sewing-related products to be thier core competencies. BERNINA perceives the rapid pace of change in the economy, technology, environment and society as a challenge. Their response is innovative strength, flexibility, the will to achieve and efficient operation. In order to safeguard and expand BERNINA'S competitive position, they choose appropriate locations worldwide for thier activities. Steckborn is and remains the center of product development. For production, they make optimum use of the Steckborn and Thailand locations.
Why do we sell BERNINA?
Just like the BERNINA company, we are also a family business. That means that you are getting the most dedicated staff that will last many generations. When we began the process of looking for products that inspired us, we came across the BERNINA brand. In all of our research the best quality machines and best quality service came from BERNINA. In our 4 years of being in business we have gotten to know personally the employees and teachers who work for BERNINA of America and happily call them friends. The education that they provide to us, we pass along to you. This means that we both get the most out of these wonderful machines!
