New Embroidery Collections | Why Choose Us

The Bobbin Case Inc. in Rochester, NY has been in business for over 23 years selling BERNINA and Bernette sewing machines, Horn, Koala, and Arrow/Kangaroo cabinets,
embroidery stabilizers, OESD and Bernina embroidery designs
as well as Mettler sewing and embroidery, King Tut, Sulky,
and Aurafil quilting and Isacord embroidery thread.

We have 2 certified BERNINA trained technicians for all your machine's
pampering, repair, and cleaning needs. Bring in your machine and let us put it in top condition.


The Bobbin Case is going to be making Surgical Caps for Kids
at Golisano Children's Hospital in Rochester, NY
DATES: We had 2 successful events, but would like to hold more
Watch this space for more dates to come

We are making caps for the children to wear as they go to the operating room at Golisano Children’s Hospital. (If you cannot join us,
perhaps you can help by donating suitable fabrics to the project.)
We will have the machines ready, so you do not have to bring your own.
Of course, you may certainly make caps at home as well.
Call or stop in the shop for instructions, pattern and
requirements for fabric preparation (washing, etc.)

It takes only a piece of cotton fabric 20" X 20" and some elastic.

Bernina Logo The Bobbin Case is ready to help you whether it's
tuning up your older machine or picking out a new one.

 Thinking about moving up to a newer model BERNINA?
We have the BERNINA and Bernette lines on display for you to try
and some new ones are on the way

We accept Trade-ins

We have a gently used, fully reconditioned
(NOT the 40+ year old classic) BERNINA 830 trade-in right now
You will receive our full support and club advantages at a price you just can't pass up
It's fully loaded with all the equipment of a new machine

Stop in and let us give you a trade-in value on your old machine
to be applied to the "MSRP" price of your new machine.
You must be able to bring in your old machine for evaluation
and enable us to assess the amount of your allowance.

We can also offer relatively painless financing with the BERNINA credit card.

Embroidery Design StudioClick on the Butterfly to go directly to The Bobbin Case's design store online

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 our 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.
