Product Overview

The perfect choice for creative sewers, the Bernina 790E Plus offers exceptional stitch quality and control, an incredible choice of stitches and a raft of embroidery designs. This machine delivers the finest sewing and embroidery whilst allowing you to explore your imagination.

With an amazing 1352 built-in stitches including 506 decorative choices, 15 automatic buttonhole styles, 24 quilting stitches and 8 alphabets. Should you require further options then you can save your own stitches to the memory. Stitch length and stitch width are adjustable and Bernina’s stitch regulator function enables you to work free hand with the assurance of uniform stitch length even at variable speeds. There are 270 embroidery designs built-in and the embroidery module is included with this model. Stitch Designer enables you to draw your ideas directly onto the touchscreen. They are then transformed into a stitch pattern.

The large touchscreen makes stitch selection simple and there are 11 needle positions to choose from. The extra-long arm means that larger projects are easy to handle and you can sew and embroider at up to 1000 stitches per minute. If you need to slow down to tackle intricate details then you have speed control and the needle up/down facility means that you choose where your needle finishes. This machine also benefits from adaptive thread tension and a start/stop button so you can sew without using the foot controller. 30 bright LED lights illuminate your work and the automatic threader enables you to start sewing quickly and easily. The extra-large bobbin holds up to 80% more thread for uninterrupted sewing.
