BERNINA of America, the premier manufacturer of sewing, embroidery and quilting machines, is pleased to announce that A Common Thread, a BERNINA Dealer in Portland, OR, will exhibit and showcase its state-of-the-art B 780 E (Embroidery) machine at the Northwest Quilting Expo in Portland.  The B 780 E is a part of BERNINA's new 7 Series line, which will be available at U.S. BERNINA Dealerships in late October.  The Quilt Expo is being held at the Portland Expo Center, 2060 N.
