BERNINA of America, the premier manufacturer of sewing, embroidery and quilting machines, is pleased to announce that California Sewing & Vacuum, a BERNINA Dealer with locations in Santa Clara, San Rafael, and San Francisco, Calif., will exhibit and showcase its new and state-of-the-art B 780 E machine at booth 302 at the Pacific International Quilt Festival.  The B 780 E is a part of BERNINA's new 7 Series line, available at U.S. BERNINA Dealerships in late October.  The festival is being held at the Santa Clara Convention Center, 5001 Great America Parkway in Santa Clara on Thursday, October 11 through Sunday, October 14.

BERNINA's new 7 Series line of machines - the B 780 E (Embroidery), B 750 QE (Quilter's Edition) and B 710 - feature the world's first, patent-pending BERNINA 9 Hook (B 9 Hook) that uniquely combines the advantages of the two best hook technologies:  the rotary and CB hook.  This hook system enables higher sewing and embroidery speeds, up to 9 mm stitch width and 80 percent more bobbin capacity than BERNINA's standard bobbins.  The 7 Series also includes an extended freearm area with 10 inches of space to the right of the needle and a practical extension table with ample space to hold your larger sewing projects.
