“This is a properly stocked Bernina shop with friendly people.”  Nico Strydom
“Keep up the excellent work and service. I love your Bernina Overberg.”  Ian
“Thank you, Bernina Overberg, for the best shopping experience when I bought my new Brother machine! I love the staff working there. They are helpful!”  Annamarie Zurich
“I have owned different Bernina machines (sewing, overlocking and embroidery), which I have used for over 35 years. I purchased my machines from several Bernina shops in different provinces throughout South Africa. I received fantastic service from Bernina Overberg. The owner is enthusiastic. The cost of her classes is reasonable, and her knowledge of different methods is great. I purchased new embroidery software this year. The teaching of my new software surpassed my expectations. I am repeating the classes so that  I have a better understanding. The second time around is at no cost!”  Linda Vorster
