Shirley & Melinda first met in 1994 when they joined a sewing group and later became co-workers at a Bernina dealership when Melinda bought her first embroidery machine and began working "just for thread". In October 2002 they opended their own Bernina dealership in Boone and shortly after that opened a second location in Winston Salem. Both ladies enjoy all types of sewing, especially heirloom, and have a vast knowledge of all things sewing! Their greatest joy is meeting and getting to know their customers and fellow sewing-junkies. Shirley and her husband, Jim, live in Charlotte and Winston Salem. Their son, Harley, lives in Greensboro and their daughter, Emily, son-in-law, Tim and grandsons, Oliver and William, live in Raleigh. Melinda and her husband, Harmon, live in Dallas and Beech Mtn.
