About Us


Sew Much Fun with BERNINA is a full service sewing and education center dedicated to providing the Collinsville, IL, area with high quality products and services that will inspire creativity, improve sewing proficiency and enjoyment, and help sewing enthusiasts succeed at their favorite projects.

Owners, Marla Gibson and mother, are avid BERNINA fans and sewists. One of their favorite things to do was to pay a visit to the local sewing store to browse the latest fabrics and BERNINA products. So when the previous store owner announced her retirement, they both knew they had to take action. 

After a fair amount of hurdles, and a roller coaster of emotions, Marla and her mother are thrilled to continue the tradition of BERNINA excellence in their community and "sew" look forward to providing sewing enthusiasts with the products and services they need to bring their creative ideas to life!
