Sew Biz in Radford, Virginia is giving away a BERNINA 350

BERNINA of America, the premier manufacturer of sewing, embroidery and quilting machines, is pleased to announce that Sew Biz, a BERNINA Dealer in Radford, Va., is one of six stores participating in a quilt shop rally from Thursday, July 11 to Sunday, July 14. The rally offers participants the opportunity to visit six different quilt shops in southwest, central and southside Virginia, and a chance at prizes, including a BERNINA 350 machine. The rally runs from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday through Saturday and from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.

Participants will need to pick up a "quilting license" from Sew Biz, located at 92 Harvey St., or any of the other quilt shops in the rally. Each shop will stamp the license and offer a free quilt pattern relating to the rally theme, door prizes and refreshments. Once a license is stamped by all six quilt shops, it can be entered into a drawing for gift baskets, a Virginia vacation getaway, or $100, $50 and $25 gift certificates from each of the participating quilt shops. In addition, Sew Biz is holding a separate drawing at its store for the B 350. For more information about the event, visit
