Get to know A Common Thread!

A Common Thread began in 1989 as BERNINA Sew-N-Vac in Lake Oswego. We've come a long way since then, expanding into over 5,000 square feet, 3,000 bolts of fabric, a full calendar of creative sewing classes, and a wonderful community of creative quilters and stitchers of every type.

Our success is truly yours! Our knowledgeable staff is ready to share their expertise with all your sewing needs, from the best new BERNINA and Janome sewing machines, to repair and troubleshooting, fabric selection, techniques and instruction, and so much more.

At A Common Thread we look forward to earning your trust and your business, and welcoming you into our creative community!
