BERNINA Blog Newsletter Subscription


Let the hunt begin

This is how you can enter the BERNINA Blog Newsletter Give Away:

 

Starting on November 2nd 2022, you will receive 4 weekly Blog Newsletters with capital letters hidden in the big title picture (see example above with a red S in the left lower corner). Each newsletter will state how many letters are hidden in the e-mail. Collect all letters and put them into the correct order to find out the keyword. On November 23th 2022 you will receive the last Give Away Newsletter where you can enter the keyword. All subscribers with the correct keyword will enter the prize draw of the BERNINA Blog Newsletter Give Away.

Prizes

You can win one of five fantastic prizes:

BERNINA is giving away a bernette b05 ACADEMY for one lucky winner. Equipped with a wide range of functions, 30 exclusive stitches, a fast motor and 12 included presser feet, the b05 ACADEMY lets you quickly realize your wildest ideas. For tricky projects that require a slower pace, you can reduce the maximum sewing speed. Who knows what ideas you will have tomorrow? The b05 ACADEMY will always be there for you!

BREWER is giving away surprise bundles to four lucky winners with 3-6 items from their exclusive Kaffe Fassett notions which launch this fall. Kaffe Fassett partners with Brewer Quilting and Sewing Supplies to produce new line of colorful notions that coordinate with the BERNINA Limited Edition Sewing Machines.  Kaffe says “What’s interesting about working with Brewer is their total attention to detail every step of the way!”

The exclusive Kaffe Fassett notions are designed with some of Kaffe’s signature colors and fabric patterns, from Millifiore to Row Flowers, and they will add color and fun to everyone’s sewing room. If you wish to collect them all, then you can maybe purchase these exclusive items at a BERNINA dealer near you.

This is your chance to win a b05 ACADEMY or one of four Kaffe Fassett surprise bundles. All you need to do is subscribing to the newsletter, finding the letters and entering the keyword before November 27, 2022!

The bernette 05 ACADEMY includes not only 30 essential stitches, but features the two most wanted stitches: Lycra and blanket stitch. You will effortlessly enjoy high-quality stitches for both thin and thick fabrics thanks to the adjustable presser foot pressure.

Signed Up after 2nd of November?

You still have a chance to find out the keyword, even if you have missed some of the hidden letters in the previous Newsletters.

    I’ve been signed up and cannot download the free patterns at one time on my iPhone I have to resubmit each time to download as I get kicked out after each download and also can’t find the letterhead on my iPhone to try and find the hidden numbers of the November to enter. Help please. I get the emails fine. 

    • ramonawirth EditEditing comments on the BERNINA blog is only possible after logging in with a blog user account. Sign up now or create a user account if you do not have one yet.

      Dear Gwen,

      Yes, for the monthly free pattern, everyone has to reenter their email in the subscription form in order to reach the download website. The system has to check wether you are already subscribed or not. If you are already subscribed, you will not subscribe a second time, it will just forward you to the free pattern download. In regards to the hidden letters, do you have an option to view the emails on a computer? Or can you open the picture on your iPhone and zoom in?

    Hi  Bernina- I signed up to do the Bernina Blog Newsletter Give Away before it started so I got the Nov. 2 Blog Newsletter. But, I did not get the second Bernina Blog newsletter this week. What should I do to get it before this second week ends? Thanks!

      Dear Maile,

      Dear May,

      You won’t be able to access the newsletter from last week, but you only missed 2 out of several. For new subscribers who are in the same situation just like you, there will be a tip in the last Newsletter which for sure will help you to puzzle it together, even if you are missing the first few letters.

      The large embroidery hoop is fantastic, but BERNINA embroidery hoops do not fit on bernette machines and vice versa.

    HI there, I am looking for a storage system for my Bernina Bobbins. Something that will hold more than what is offered in the Bernina accessory box and those little bobbin cylinders. Any ideas?

    • ramonawirth EditEditing comments on the BERNINA blog is only possible after logging in with a blog user account. Sign up now or create a user account if you do not have one yet.

      Dear Carol,
      Yes, depending on which machine and spools you have, you can either search on google for a BERNINA Jumbo Spool Box like this one:

      Or contact your nearest dealer and ask if he has a box like that. Some boxes are filled with empty spools, but since you say you need more space, you might prefer an empty one. You can find your nearest dealer here: http://www.bernina.com/dealersearch
