We hope that you will continue visiting the BERNINA blog in the new year. As a thank You for your loyalty, we are holding a raffle today with great prizes. You will find the information further down in the article. Good luck!
The secret skills of BERNINA presser feet
First a quick excursion. Do you remember last year’s BERNINA Christmas video? After an intense year of work, our sewing feet took a break at the end of 2020, slipped out of the sewing room and went on winter vacation. We could well understand that, because 2020 was exhausting for everyone.
The conclusion of our feet: A short rest is simply good for you! That’s why they are treating themselves to a break this year, too. They left the studio on quiet soles and entered a Christmas bakery near Steckborn. Always with them: their faithful companion, the pincushion.
What mischief are the little guys up to between the cake tray and the rolling pin?
Coincidentally, a camera was there and recorded everything. Take a look at it:
The secret skills of our presser feet surprise us again and again!
And how was your year – do you also need a short break? I am happy to see you here and taking a few minutes to read this article. Maybe the BERNINA blog is for you what the Christmas bakery is for our presser feet: a special place where you can forget everyday worries for a moment, get to know new things with friends and family, recharge your creative batteries, and have some fun. I would be happy if you feel the same way.
Would you like to share the Christmas video on Instagram or Whatsapp or other channels and help us spread a little humour and harmless mischief in the sometimes too serious world? You are very welcome to do so! Under the following link, we provide you with a shortened and compressed video in two versions:
The Whatsapp video is in landscape format, the Instagram video is square.
If you click on the link, the ZIP file will automatically download to your computer. You will usually find it in the Downloads folder, but this depends on your device and your local settings.
Unzip the ZIP and the video is available as an MP4 file. You can then upload it to Instagram, Whatsapp and other channels and hopefully bring a smile to many people’s faces! Please use the hashtag #BERNINAxmas2021 on Instagram. On Facebook, you can simply share this post.
This article is the 24th door and the end of our Advent calendar with many creative ideas. On the last day we have a surprise for you: A Christmas raffle with special prices!
