BERNINA Best Friend

Sewing Event

BERNINA introduced the 2016 BERNINA 350 Special Edition Best Friend (B 350 SE Best Friend) sewing machine this year to support the Petfinder Foundation’s mission to help pets in need and will donate $30,000, a portion of sales, to the foundation.  Additionally, BERNINA supports The Quilt Pattern Magazine’s (TQPM) Kennel Quilt Team to aid pets in shelters and is hosting kennel quilt events at BERNINA Dealer locations, nationwide.    
The Best Friend Sewing Events are an opportunity for local sewists to come together at a BERNINA Dealer location to make kennel quilts for dogs and cats waiting to be adopted.  Sewists and non-sewists will also have a chance to experience the BERNINA 350 SE Best Friend sewing machine to help an animal in need.  Kennel quilts are donated to local shelters and adoptable pets are on-site at some of the events.
