SEW BERNINA Newsletter
Roy, Susan, Chrissy and Katherine have recently returned from BERNINA University. The news from BERNINA includes the introduction of several new products. The B700, BERNINA’s newest embroidery-only machine, is scheduled to arrive during the Fall. Version 8 software is already available, as is the L450 Serger. We are also awaiting the B765 Special Edition. This machine is comparable to the B770, but has a customizable bundle that makes it an especially great value. These will be arriving in October, but are of a very limited quantity. If you have been considering a 7 Series machine, please come see us soon to ask about this great deal. Also, you may visit our Facebook page to see videos from BU.
New fabric lines include Haiku by Moda Classic and Wool Needle IV Flannels by Primitive Gatherings. We also have a new selection of Game Day fabrics. Our newest stabilizer is OESD’s “Fusible Woven,” the ideal stabilizer if you are considering embroidering on quilt blocks.
