    Sewing with Bernina in Las Cruces

    In my mad dash to get out the door, I always leave something behind. When I am going out of town this becomes a problem. All to often, I forget my toothbrush or toothpaste. When I saw an email on an upcoming class from Bernina in Las Cruces for a Cosmetic Organizer, I had to …
