Part of the Family for Over 50 Years
Fritz Gegauf, son of Karl Friedrich Gegauf who founded the company, must have known that the sewing machine brand he established in 1932 would receive the highest acclaim from the sewing world. This is why he chose the name BERNINA, taking the Piz Bernina mountain, which soars 4,048 meters (13,280ft) above sea level and the only peak in the eastern Alps higher than four thousand meters, as his inspiration.
Mountain peaks and sewing machines both stand for high goals and high expectations: Piz Bernina, the “mountain monarch of the eastern Alps” and BERNINA, the Porsche among sewing machines.
We are proud to have been a member of the BERNINA dealership family for 50 years and will continue to meet your expectations with friendly service and an excellent technical department.
