Service Technician, Rick Kauppila, at work

Yes, we have a Certified Bernina Technician!  Rick is very qualified.  A MTU engineer, owner of UP Fabricating, and the husband of Pam, Rick is well known to be able to fix anything.  He has also spent 3 solid weeks at Bernina USA in Aurora, IL for Bernina Training and keeps up to date with the latest training.   He also spent an entire week in Des Moines, IA and is a Certified Tech for APQS longarm quilting machines.  He has serviced other brands as well.

When Rick isn't working, he does break away every so often and catches a big lunker like this one!  This one didn't get away!
