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.

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.

Sew with Even Greater Ease

The BERNINA 790 PLUS 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.

Create Your Own Stitches

The BERNINA 790 PLUS features a very special innovative function: the Stitch Designer. Create your own stitches by drawing your ideas right on the touch screen. With a click, the BERNINA 790 PLUS transforms your design into a stitch pattern. Or alter existing stitches as it takes your fancy. Save your very own stitch creations to steadily expand your stitch library.

Bernina Dual Feed & Stitch Regulator

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 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.

Extended Freearm for Grand Ideas

The BERNINA 7 Series includes a meticulously engineered extended freearm with 10" 25.5cm of space to the right of the needle. The BERNINA 790 PLUSE provides you with ample space for big, beautiful sewing and embroidery projects, the extra-large embroidery module lets you stitch out maxi-sized motifs, and as your ambitions grow, the Bernina 790 Plus can be updated with a wealth of accessories.

Beautiful Embroidery Is Simplicity Itself
The BERNINA 790 PLUS is an embroidery expert. Switch to embroidery mode directly via the touch screen. Embroidery mode lets you easily position, mirror, rotate and resize motifs. Design editing on the Bernina 790 Plus offers a wealth of additional options, letting you create curved lettering effects, alter stitch density, and combine decorative stitches or alphabets with embroidery designs. Complex combinations can even be re-sequenced according to colour, and alternative colour options can be reviewed before stitching out. The Check function lets you position the design precisely before embroidering. The finished design can be saved directly on the machine or on a USB stick.
With 118 Alphabets and over 300 embroidery designs you will always have the perfect project at your fingertips.

Bernina Machines sold in the UK currently have a full 7 year warranty on the whole machine.

To qualify for the extended warranty you need to register the purchase of your machine by returning the completed warranty card to us to sign. We will then arrange for a certificate of extended warranty to be sent to you from Bogod Co.
In order to comply with the extended warranty you will need to maintain the machine and have it serviced within recommended periods. All Bernina sewing machines have electronic stitch counters*, which give an on screen message when it is necessary to have a service. However, even if a machine is only used occasionally and the stitch count for a service is not reached, it is still necessary to have the sewing machine serviced a minimum of every 3 years.

The extended warranty applies for normal domestic use only - not educational or commercial use - and to the first purchaser only.

*Except the 1008S
