Anybody can sell you a sewing machine—it’s what comes after the sale that counts.


The contract that BERNINA of America has with their dealers includes the following:

The dealer shall not advertise and promote the sale of any BERNINA product online or by any other electronic medium or device not specifically approved in
writing by BERNINA of America.

Due to our agreement with BERNINA, we (meaning every dealer) are not allowed to advertise prices, or sell new or used machines via the internet or outside our selling area.
This follows The Presser Foot policy of hands-on and personal customer care. We invite you to visit our stores in Longmont and Fort Collins to experience in person the service and products we have to offer you, and to spend some time to demo the sewing or embroidery machines you are most interested in.

If you are looking online for a sewing machine or overlocker, please consider the following:

Most manufacturers’ warranties do not provide funds for reimbursement for any other dealer to fully service a sewing machine purchased from another store.

The above statement also applies to lessons and instruction on the use of your sewing machine. The Presser Foot only provides free Owners' Classes for machines purchased from our stores. If you are new to our area and are interested in Owners' Classes for the BERNINA you already own, ask us about our adoption program.

A good price is not the same thing as a good value. A lower price from a dealer who discounts typically translates into much lower quality of service and instruction.
The Presser Foot is an experienced dealer with knowledgeable staff and certified, trained technicians. We specialize exclusively in BERNINA sewing machines, and we promise to provide you with superior service and education, regardless of how much you spend when you purchase your new sewing or embroidery machine from us.
We offer all of our Owners' Classes frequently and we will not cancel class if there is only one student—if you are the only one in class, you get private instruction!

We recommend purchasing your BERNINA sewing machine from your closest full service dealer so that you can receive all the benefits that come with it.
