     The Beatrice Public Library Foundation in its support of the Library Maker Space is adding the latest technology in stitchery. The Bernina 880E is a marvel of ingenuity capable of performing automated sewing, quilting and embroidery at the push of a button.  With the precision instrument, anyone will be able to produce high quality designs that can proudly be displayed on clothing, blankets, hats and so much more.  During these times of uncertainty and worry, you can  Make A Mask - Make a Message!
