Magnifying Lens Set and Bracket

BERNINA’s practical Magnifying Lens Set sharpens your view of the work area. The set contains three magnifying lenses of different strengths, enabling you to choose the most suitable magnification for the project.

The lenses provide an optimum view when threading, and magnify the stitching area. This is especially helpful for precision sewing in tricky places. The magnifying lenses also make light work of embroidery, sparing your eyes and reducing fatigue.

Add a bracket

Add one of the mounting brackets to hold your new lens set. There are different brackets to fit different models of BERNINA - ask our knowledgeable staff which one is right for your machine.

BERNINA Magnifying Lens Set

Take 25% off, now until November 30, 2018.

Pick up a Magnifying Lens Set and/or a bracket and really see what you are sewing. Available in-store or online.

Did You Know?

that Stan Lee passed away this week?

Did You Know Question Mark

If you grew up reading comic books about Spiderman or The Incredible Hulk, or have watched the numerous cartoons, TV series and movies from the Marvel universe, then you probably know that the co-creator behind these and many other superheroes died this past Monday.

Stan Lee is credited with adding a human frailty to the traditional superhero/heroine. Thus Spiderman still had to deal with all of the problems of being a teenager in school, and Dr. David Banner trying to contain the anger of his alter-ego, the Hulk.

We often identify with the characters that we see and read about, because they aren’t just a paper cut-out “good guy”. They are often people just like us, thrown into extraordinary circumstances. And even the villains can have a change of heart, or a weak spot, to show that they too are human.

Who is your comic book hero? And why?

If you have a cartoon hero, or a favourite character from some other TV show, movie or book, show it with your fabrics. From Warner Brothers, to D.C. Comics, to Marvel, as well as Lord of the Rings, Downton Abbey and even The Big Bang Theory, fabric manufacturers give you the opportunity to show who you identify with. Even the younger ones can find their heroes, including Dora and a wide range of Pixar characters. It’s a way to show your interests and personality, and to find others who also identify with them.

Check out all of the weird and wonderful items at My Sewing Room, and show us which superhero/heroine you are!
