Bernina 880 Plus
The most space. The most speed. The most precision. The Bernina 880 boasts many cutting-edge features developed by a team of experts in Switzerland. It has state-of-the-art technology combined with Swiss craftsmanship. The unprecedented functions and innovative features are designed with the sewer, quilter and embroiderer in mind.

Imagine a machine that automatically responds to your needs. The presser foot automatically lowers at the start of a seam and lifts again at the end. The Bernina 880 will even cut the thread for you at the end of a seam or colour change in embroidery. The feed dog raises and lowers automatically for free-motion stitching and embroidery, and of course, fully automatic threading is yours at the touch of a button. With a top speed of over 1000 sewing stitches per minute the Bernina 880 still hums and produces flawless stitches and gorgeous designs.

The Bernina 770 Quilters Edition

Sew with Even Greater Ease
The BERNINA 770 QE accomplishes many tasks all by itself. The presser foot lowers automatically at the beginning of a seam. Threading is semi-automatic, and the thread is cut automatically when you reach the end of a seam, or when you wish to change colours while embroidering. Moreover, a practical extension table, which yet again significantly increases your work area, is included in the standard package.

BERNINA Dual Feed
The innovative BERNINA Dual Feed tames hard-to-manage fabrics providing superb fabric feed and optimum visibility while sewing. Easy to engage when needed, the BERNINA Dual Feed tucks completely out of the way when it’s not.

The BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR)
The BERNINA 770 QE is equipped with the BSR function. The BSR foot assists you with free-motion sewing and quilting with a straight or zigzag stitch, ensuring stitches of the exact same length even at variable sewing speeds. It comes standard with the machine.

BERNINA Adaptive Thread Tension
The BERNINA Adaptive Thread Tension, a BERNINA innovation, provides ideal thread tension for each and every stitch type, in any variation. The tension is electronically adjusted to the selected stitch width, length, speed, and needle position on each penetration of the needle into the fabric. The result is the finest stitching without pressing a button.

Extended Freearm for Grand Ideas
The BERNINA 7 Series includes a meticulously engineered extended freearm with 10 inches of space to the right of the needle. The BERNINA 770 QE not only provides plenty of space for large, beautiful sewing and quilting projects - with its stitch width of 9 mm, it is also ideally suited for sewing decorative stitches. The extra-large embroidery module (optional with the BERNINA 770 QE) lets you stitch out maxi-sized motifs. And should your ambitions grow, the BERNINA 770 QE can be updated with a wealth of accessories.

The BERNINA Hook
The heart of the BERNINA 7 Series features a novel, centrally placed driver, which allows the BERNINA Hook to run fast yet quietly. The BERNINA Hook sews high-precision stitches up to 9 mm in width with speeds up to 1,000 stitches per minute. The bobbin holds up to 70% more thread than standard bobbins allowing you to sew longer without interruption.
