October & November 2017 News



We have hundreds of new fabrics for your shopping pleasure.  As usual, we try to accommodate everyone’s tastes.  We appreciate your continued support in helping keep our shop as great as it is.  We see a lot of the same visitors in the summer and they love it here and we love to hear it!


Toward the end of October, Bernina is launching a new 5 series machine.  We’re very excited about that.  It will have a 1-inch bigger throat than the current 5 series and it will have the differential feed and jumbo bobbin!  We always wonder what they can do to make a perfect machine even better and then they come up with this.  I know you’ll be impressed.


For most of our classes, we will continue to collect gift cards for Superstore.  These are used to help those that need a hand up now and again.  Also, we support people for the Christmas holiday by way of providing gifts and food.  


Kathy’s Quilt Shop and BERNINA would like to invite you to a special VIP Event for all 8 Series and 7 Series Machine owners.

During this special event you will be embroidering a trendy bag. We have two different ones to choose from: A faux suede, silk lined, side-body bag, done almost all “in the hoop” – including the zipper - featuring PaintWorks and CrystalWorks or a Linen Vacation Tote featuring Tufted Embroidery and PaintWorks. Whichever you choose, you will have an opportunity to try some of BERNINA’s exciting and unique embroidery techniques.  The day will include a mini software orientation and a machine review about the WOW features of your machine which will inspire you to create your own original projects.


Bernina is launching a new 5 series machine. We will have our machines in to show you some time in November. They have even more features for you to LOVE!


For most of our classes, we will continue to collect gift cards for Superstore. These are used to help those that need a hand up now and again. Also, we support people for the Christmas holiday by way of providing gifts and food.


We will open on Remembrance day at noon so we can take part in the ceremony at City Hall in the morning. Please reflect on what our veterans have done and continue to do to keep us safe and free.
