BERNINA of America, the premier manufacturer of sewing, embroidery and quilting machines, is pleased to announce that Becky's Fabrics & BERNINA, a BERNINA Dealer located in Lewiston, Idaho, will exhibit and showcase its B 780 E (Embroidery) at both the Latah County Fair and Nez Perce County Fair.  The B 780 E is part of BERNINA's new and state-of-the-art 7 Series, available at U.S. BERNINA Dealerships in late October.  The Latah County Fair is being held at 1021 Harold Ave. in Moscow, Idaho, from Thursday, September 13 through Sunday, September 16.  The Nez Perce County Fair is being held at 1229 Burrell Ave. in Lewiston from Thursday, September 20 through Sunday, September 23.

BERNINA's new 7 Series line of machines - the B 780 E, 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.
