Click on the Butterfly to go directly to The Bobbin Case's design store on-line

Design Studio has changed to allow you to participate
in special on-line sales on OESD Designs.

If you click on the Butterfly above, you go directly to the Bobbin Case's
personal store in the Design Studio and we get "Brownie Points" when
you buy in that way. It is the same price as buying from OESD's site
except we get credit for the purchase (no, not the money) but
it looks good on our record for BERNINA sales.
You don't have to come into our (brick and mortar) store to purchase designs.
However, if you are at all uncomfortable with ordering,
downloading and paying on-line, we will be very happy to
help you download your design purchases at our store
