Quick Links


Are you ready for Row by Row 2016?

The 2016 Row by Row Experience kicks off Tuesday, June 21 through Tuesday, September 6 with the theme of "Home Sweet Home".  Hope you like our row - Hoo Be Quiltn.  As Charlottesville, is sometimes known as Hoo-ville, we used our 'home' colors of orange and blue for our optional little quilts.  Use your favorite or home colors for quilts.  Have a great summer and come in or send pictures of your finished Hoo Be Quiltn row.

COTTONWOOD is Charlottesville's authorized BERNINA dealer.  We are happy to be part of the BERNINA of America family and we want you to be a part of our family too.

At COTTONWOOD, we offer the full line of BERNINA sergers, sewing and embroidery machines, as well as software, accessories, classes and an on-site technician.  Additionally, we offer the finest machine mastery classes to help our customers improve their sewing skills and make the most of their BERNINA experience.

Mary's Notes

Unmask the Amazing!, the theme of BU2016 and they did.  BERNINA University was wonderful!  While I spent most of my time training on the new Q-Matic and Art n' Stitch software, I did have a chance to see the new 700 Embroidery Machine, incredible, and the 765 Special Edition in beautiful Rose Gold.  Wait until you see the Color Photostitch in V8 DesignerPlus, among other new features.  And a serger with a Free-Hand System - yes, the new BERNINA L460 Overlocker, also with needle up/down in the foot control. The Adjustable Ruler Foot #72 for BERNINA Sewing Machines - wait for it, it will be worth the wait.  It is compatible with all 2,3,4,5,6,7 and 8 series machines.  Order yours today, they won't be available until later this year, but there will be a big demand.  I also had a chance to do some shopping in the merchants mall - more new fabric, embroidery designs, patterns, threads...
Join us for Christmas in July, Saturday and Sunday, July 23 and 24.  We will have demonstrations of Christmas projects, the Fall Class Calendar and samples of the classes.  And the Fall ClassPass.  Lots of summer classes still available. Check out our Summer Calendar and come in or call to reserve your classes.
We are eagerly awaiting our Q-Matic system for the Q-24, but in the meantime, we are scheduling Q24 Longarm certification classes to allow you to use our machine for your quilt projects.  Call to schedule an appointment to certify and to quilt.
