SEWING MACHINE SHOP
232 Wanner Road,
(1/4 mi off Rte 322E Hinkletown),
Ephrata, PA 17522-9314
While this is not a fabric shop, anyone who has shopped for Bernina sewing machines in Lancaster at QHC will tell you that this is the shop to visit if you want the best price on a Bernina. The owner, Mr. Zimmerman, is not able to ship machines to other locations, but he can sell Bernina accessories by mail. If you are in the area and shopping for a new machine, it will definitely be worth the trip.
Marie Quigg adds: "Mr. Zimmerman carries a nice line of Sulky metallic and rayon thread. He sells Horn cabinets for the machine, and even sell used Berninas at phenominally low prices! Just think... the machine you trade in may be used by a Mennonite or Amish woman in making quilts!"
Directions (courtesy of Marie Quigg): Take Rt. 322 from Blue Ball/New Holland area west toward Ephrata. Travel about 5 miles, past Postive Fitness Center (on left) and you will come to a crossroads. SLOW DOWN! Ephrata National Bank will on the left corner of 322 and Railroad Avenue. Take a SHARP right turn onto Wanner Road. Mr. Zimmerman's farm and sewing machine shop is the first farm on the right, opposite the Amish school, down the lane. The building has a quaint sewing machine wind vane and a Bernina marker at the end of the lane, near the mailbox.
