BERNINA of America, the premier manufacturer of sewing, embroidery and quilting machines, is pleased to announce that it is the sewing machine sponsor for the 2013 Sewing Summit in Salt Lake City, Utah on Thursday, September 19 - Saturday, September 21. The 2013 Sewing Summit is a modern sewing and blogging conference for the modern sewist who wants to connect with others in a fun and inspiring setting. BERNINA, along with Nuttall's Inc., a BERNINA Dealer with four locations in Utah, will provide 62 sewing machines, including the BERNINA 780, BERNINA 750 QE (Quilter's Edition), BERNINA 710 and BERNINA 350 PE for the summit's classes and open sew events. In addition to providing sewing machines, representatives from BERNINA will host a Q&A session at the summit, with recommendations and advice on how to approach corporate sponsors.

"BERNINA is excited to be the sewing machine sponsor at this year's Sewing Summit and to have the opportunity to advise up-and-coming bloggers about approaching corporate sponsors," said Amy Gutierrez, Director of Marketing for BERNINA of America. "BERNINA is continually exploring opportunities to form partnerships with bloggers and is actively looking for new sewing Experts for the WeAllSew blog."

The B 780, B 750 QE and B 710 comprise the 7 Series, BERNINA's newest line of sewing, quilting and embroidery machines. Each 7 Series machine 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 larger sewing projects. The 7 Series is also equipped with a color touchscreen and the integrated BERNINA Dual Feed, which tames hard-to-manage and fine fabrics.

The Sewing Summit is a cross between a traditional sewing retreat and a social media blogging conference with hands-on workshops, networking events, inspiring speakers and informative lecture sessions. The Sewing Summit was founded in 2010 by bloggers Amy Ellis and Erin Singleton and held its first conference in 2011, with over 200 sewists from around the United States.
