BERNINA of America, the premier manufacturer of sewing, embroidery and quilting machines, is pleased to announce that it is a Gold-Level sponsor of QuiltCon, the inaugural conference and show of The Modern Quilt Guild. QuiltCon runs Thursday, February 21 to Sunday, February 24 at the Austin Convention Center, 500 E. Cesar Chavez St., Austin, Texas. The new BERNINA 750 QE (Quilter’s Edition) and BERNINA 780 E (Embroidery) will be on display at booth 414, along with BERNINA’s full line of quilting machines. In addition, Barbara Goldkorn, co-founder of BERNINA Dealer Sew Much More in Austin, will lead two 30-minute demonstrations on the BERNINA 780 E and the BERNINA Stitch Regular (BSR).
The new 7 Series line of machines includes the BERNINA 710, the BERNINA 750 QE and the BERNINA 780 E. The 7 Series features the world’s first, patent-pending BERNINA 9 Hook (B 9 Hook), which uniquely combines the advantages of the two best hook technologies, the rotary and CB hook, enabling higher sewing and embroidery speeds, up to 9 mm stitch width and 80 percent more bobbin capacity. Each 7 Series machine is equipped with a color touch screen and the integrated BERNINA Dual Feed, which tames hard-to-manage and fine fabrics.
