BERNINA of America, the premier manufacturer of sewing, embroidery and quilting machines, is pleased to announce that Appletree Quilting Center, a BERNINA Dealer in Columbia, Mo., will host two Quilted Inspirations events with quilting expert and BERNINA Educator Nina McVeigh. The events will take place on Tuesday, August 11 from 1:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. and from 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at the Dealer, located at 2541 Bernadette Drive. The cost is $12 per event. To register, stop by the store or call (573)446-2655.
BERNINA Educator Nina McVeigh will share quilting inspiration she gained from BERNINA headquarters in Steckborn, Switzerland, including not-so-traditional quilted techniques like wool appliqué and machine beading. Attendees will also have an opportunity to experience the functions and features of the BERNINA 880 and BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR). Nina is also host of The Quilt Show, where she shares valuable quilting knowledge.
The BERNINA 880 (B 880) is BERNINA’s top-of-the-line model and one of its fastest sewing and embroidery machines to-date. The B 880 also features more built-in stitch patterns and embroidery designs to choose than ever before. It comes standard with the BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR), which ensures stitches of the exact same length when free-motion sewing. Other features include 400 built-in embroidery designs, as well as the ability to create unique embroidery designs and adjust their color before embroidering begins. In addition, the B 880 has a Jumbo Bobbin with 80 percent more thread capacity than standard bobbins.
