We've had our Business for over 25 Years now - and  would love to sell this business.  If this is your "Passion" - then you will enjoy working in this field as we certainly have,   We welcome anyone who might be genuinley interested in buying  this well known, reputable Business  to contact us .  We are proud to be celebrating 125 Years  of Bernina World wide, and with NZ being ranked 2nd in the World - yes behind Switzerland - per head per Capita for Bernina Sales.  NZ we can pat ourselves on the back!!

Bernina Sewing Centre has been servicing the Manawatu for over 65 years. 

We contribute our success to the fact that our different sewing skills allow us to offer complete professional advice in a variety of areas from tailoring, dressmaking, creative sewing, quilting etc.  We're passionate about creating and designing and love to share our knowledge with experienced and novice sewers.  The team at our store have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to sewing machines,  some training and support  from Bernina NZ has also contributed to our success.


Our Sewing Machine Technician  - Fred works on site in our technical department, and this means our clients are fortunate to be able to have their machines serviced in a very short time.   Its vitally important that you have your machine serviced regularly to achieve the best results - so that 12 monthly "WOF" is highly recommended. As our workshop is steadily busy and you may not want to be without your machine for more than a day or so - we offer a same day book in service.
