“Last year we made 50 kennel quilts for the Sharonville SPCA and we hope to make at least that many again at our upcoming Sew-In event,” said Anitra Gardner, owner of Kramer’s Sew & Vac. “This year marks our 70th year in business and we’d like to celebrate by inviting the community into the store to provide a comfy quilt for one of the many adoptable pets here on-site or back at the SPCA. We hope you’ll join us in this great event.”
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.
