BERNINA of America, the premier manufacturer of sewing, embroidery and quilting machines, is pleased to announce that Stash, a BERNINA Dealer in Walla Walla, Wash., will host a Community Quilting Day event on Saturday, April 30 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Dealer located at 25 West Main, invites the community to make 10 sailboat quilts to benefit the YMCA’s Safe Shelter. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience a BERNINA 215 Simply Red (B 215 Simply Red) and machines from BERNINA’s 3 Series, 5 Series, and 7 Series. The event is free but the Dealer asks for each attendee to bring fabric and batting (72” x 96”) and is offering in-store discounts on those items. Registration is required as classroom seating is limited. To register, call (509)526-5141 or stop by the store.
The B 215 Simply Red offers Swiss-engineered quality and the option to add a wide range of BERNINA accessories at an affordable price. It's a user-friendly machine that has a distinctive BERNINA look with its sleek white body and red accents, and it can easily handle thick layers of fabric and perform a multitude of creative techniques. Features include a built-in needle threader, thread cutter, backlit LCD, and direct-select keypad for accessing 11 stitch patterns including a buttonhole. The B 215 Simply Red lets users easily vary stitch length, stitch width and needle position for expanded sewing options. In addition, the most commonly used practical stitches can be set at the touch of a button using the large, clear icons next to the direct-selection keys displaying the stitch. The B 215 Simply Red also offers a sewing speed of up to 900 stitches per minute that can be reduced to half-tempo, giving beginners full control, and the needle can be set to stop up or down in the fabric. Additionally, the built-in needle threader lets users quickly rethread the machine when changing spools. Other features include a four-step buttonhole and a darning program.
