  • This would be a dream come true! I haven’t had a machine since before Christmas, this is killin me… I chose BERNINA as the type of machine I will have for the next and last machine I own. Wish me luck in the sweepstakes!

  • I have not owned a very good sewing machine and hope to win this one as I would like to be like my mother who was a seamstress while growing up…she made all of our clothes. I would live to be able to do this for my 13 year old daughter. I have heard so many good things about this brand and hope to win one since I cannot afford a new machine. Thabk you for offering this sweepstake.
