BERNINA Educator Nina McVeigh will share quilting inspiration she gained from Steckborn, Switzerland that led her to fun, “not so traditional” quilted techniques like wool appliqué, and machine beading. Attendees will have an opportunity to experience the functions and features of the BERNINA Q 20 and Q 24 Longarm quilting machines. Nina is a quilting expert and hosts The Quilt Show, where she shares valuable quilting knowledge.
BERNINA Q 20 Longarm
Designed, engineered and hand crafted in Switzerland, the BERNINA Q 20 Longarm offers 20 inches of throat space to finish large quilts comfortably. Among its features are an exclusive tension control system, a built-in needle threader, and a sewing speed up to 2,200 stitches per minute. The BERNINA Q 20 Longarm is available at authorized BERNINA Dealers nationwide. Two BERNINA Longarm Stitch Regulators are located on each side of the stitch holes in the BERNINA Q 20 Longarm’s needle plate. Equipped with dual optical sensors, the BERNINA Longarm Stitch Regulators allow very precise sensing of the machine and fabric movement, regardless of how simple or complex a quilt pattern may be. This allows for uniform and even stitches.
In addition, the new Longarm machine features a one-of-a-kind electronically controlled tension system and the home industry’s only presser foot tension release for threading ease. The tension system features numeric settings that make it simple to adjust the thread tension and track a variety of thread types and combinations. The thread stand is also positioned forward to make it easy to reach.
BERNINA Q 24 Longarm
The BERNINA Q 24 Longarm offers generous depth and height to better manage larger quilts. It’s ergonomic, user-friendly and includes a number of innovative features. The BERNINA Q 24 Longarm is equipped with a throat space 24 inches wide and 11 inches high, offering ample space to finish large quilts comfortably. It also comes standard with a one-of-kind electronically controlled tension system and the home industry’s only presser foot tension release for threading ease.
In addition, the BERNINA Q 24 Longarm has an intuitive color touchscreen interface that is simple to navigate, customizable, and includes useful functions like a stitch counter and a built-in tutorial. Other features include programmable handles, a unique threading path, and an integrated bobbin winder.
