What is a Bernina and RARE Science for RARE BARE-NINA Event?

America’s elite manufacturer of sewing, embroidery, and quilting machines, BERNINA, will join with RARE Science to host sew-in events where fabric crafters can create unique, special stuffed bears for children affected by rare diseases. Each bear is specially designed to incorporate the child’s favorite colors and hobbies and has a tag of authenticity.

RARE Science is a non-profit organization dedicated to identifying rare diseases in young patients and developing therapeutic solutions. BERNINA community members are proud to use their skills to make these very special bears for RARE children and their families. Examples of the loved and lovable bears can be enjoyed at http://www.rarescience.org/rare-bear-program/rare-bear-kids.

Amy Gutierrez, Director of Marketing for BERNINA of America, adds that “BERNINA is proud to partner with RARE Science to help children and families affected by rare diseases. We are excited for members of the community to come together to sew RARE Bears that will bring comfort to children and their families.”
