Bernina Factory in Steckborn, Switzerland

Steckborn, Switzerland is a magical place; because it is where Bernina's are designed and manufactured. 
The Bernina Company was established in 1893 and is still owned and operated by H.P. Ueltschi.
H.P. Ueltschi is the grand-son of the founder Fritz Gegauf. 

Bernina machines are best known for their Swiss craftsmanship, innovations and longevity of the product.
Bernina was the inventor of the hemstitch sewing machine; and the first Microsoft® Windows® Powered
operating system for embroidery machines. Bernina is still the forerunner today in the industry.

Bernina 9 Hook, paintworks and crystal work programs.
