BERNINA of America, the premier manufacturer of sewing, embroidery and quilting machines, is pleased to announce that Cozy Creative Center, a BERNINA Dealer in El Cajon, Calif., is hosting two classes with BERNINA educator Debbi Lashbrook. On Friday, October 2, she will teach “V7 and Loving It,” and on Saturday, October 3, she will teach “BERNINA’s Best.”  The events will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day at the Dealer located at 756 Jamacha Road in El Cajon. Each event costs $40.00. Lunch is included on Saturday. To register, call (619)670-0652 or stop by the store. Registration is required as seats are limited.
On Friday, attendees will learn more about BERNINA’s Designer Plus V7 software and its digitizing capabilities. On Saturday, Debbi will focus on embroidery, stitching and the BERNINA Stitch Regulator using the new BERNINA 790 (B 790) and the top-of-the-line BERNINA 880 (B 880).
The B 790 is a sewing and embroidery combo machine with a 7-inch high-resolution color touch screen and programmable foot control, and comes standard with the BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR), which ensures stitches of the exact same length when free-motion sewing. The B 790 is also equipped with the one-of-a-kind Stitch Designer, which allows users to draw their own stitches on the touch screen and in one click, convert them into a stitch pattern. Additionally, it features 554 stitches, including newly designed sideways motion stitches, 270 embroidery designs, and eight embroidery alphabets. The B 790 also comes with the embroidery module that accommodates the Maxi Hoop for a large embroidery area.
The B 880 is BERNINA’s fastest sewing and embroidery model to-date, with more built-in stitch patterns and embroidery designs to choose than ever before, plus innovative new features like the Shaping and Color Wheel. The B 880 also offers 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.
