June 19, 2016 marked a sad day for Bernina World of Sewing with the passing of Marilyn Harlow-Maynard. Carolyn and John wasted no time in planning the future of BWOS.
They have decided to transition the store to new ownership effective Saturday August 13th. Carolyn’s wish was to make the transition seamless for all of our wonderful customers. You will not have to learn any new names as all of our dedicated staff will remain unchanged. The only new name you will have to learn is mine…Sona Thorburn (not to be confused with our amazing Sonja Shogren).
And this is what I look like:
I will have the privilege of taking the baton and continuing the tradition of quality and customer service that Bernina World of Sewing has upheld for 40 years.
You may have seen me in classes or shopping in the store, as I have been a customer and Bernina lover for many years. I am so excited about this incredible opportunity. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you. Please stop by and say HI!
There are a few exciting announcements I would like to make:
1. We will have an inventory reduction sale beginning Thursday August 18th through Saturday August 20th. Look for great deals on fabric, thread, notions, and even a few fixtures.
2. We will be closed for renovations starting Monday August 22nd , . We will reopen on Monday August 29th.
3. Gift cards and key tags will continue to be used and honored.
As we transition, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
I hope to see you in the store soon!
