“inspiration” – Sewing Expertise and Sewing Patterns from BERNINA

Our magazine “inspiration” has been around for decades. It contains attractive photo series, detailed and precise sewing instructions, tips and tricks from practical sewing experience, and, of course, two large sheets of sewing patterns. We develop the entire content ourselves in-house. In our studio located in the BERNINA headquarters in Steckborn, you will find projects being created, sewn, and embroidered on a daily basis. This is where the sewing patterns are developed and the photo shoots, translation work, and layout design are organized. Leading the way is Claudia Giesser.

Together the editorial team develops sewing projects that encourage the creative use of textiles. Previously, the magazine was offered exclusively in printed form. It could be obtained from licensed dealers and was shipped to subscribing readers around the world. This continues to be the case. Only now there are more options!


Patterns available for download

Does this sound familiar? You have awesome material at home and would love to start a new sewing project immediately. Unfortunately, you don’t have a specific idea of what you want, nor do you have a pattern. Or you would like to sew something for a special event and urgently need inspiration. Those are the moments when you need great project ideas quickly and, preferably, the matching sewing pattern too!

The new online shop is the perfect solution to this problem. When you are in a rush or when you simply want to browse through ideas and patterns from the comfort of your own home, is the right place for you.

Sewing pattern downloads in the “inspiration” online shop

The sewing patterns can be purchased and downloaded in either the A4 format (to be glued together) or in A0 format (for large format printing at a copy shop). With the download you will receive all the necessary info regarding the sizes and materials needed, detailed sewing instructions, detailed photos, and sewing tricks and tips.

The selection is broad and grows bigger with each new issue of “inspiration”:

Different categories so you can find your pattern quickly and easily

Additionally, the magazine is available to download as an e-magazine, including all of the patterns contained inside. Here, for example, is the current issue: inspiration 2-2020. This magazine and e-magazine contains 29 sewing projects to try out and 22 patterns, among other things.

If you do not wish to download and glue together the patterns, you can order “inspiration” in print as before or subscribe to the magazine. Both are available via the online shop.

Missed a free download?

Some of you may have noticed the free downloadable sewing patterns that we offer here on the blog once a month. In February it was the pattern for the “Grace” pants. If you missed a download, you can now find the pattern in the online shop.
