The B880E will even cut the thread for you at the end of a seam or color 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.

Bernina 880E Brochure
BERNINA 880: how to sew with the BERNINA Dual Feed (BDF).
This tutorial explains the functionality of the patented BERNINA Dual Transport of your BERNINA 880. This technology, which simultaneously feeds through layers of fabric from above and below, means that even difficult materials can be handled easily and accurately. The risk of the fabric slipping during sewing is as good as eliminated and even thick layers of material which is normally prone to gliding can be sewn perfectly with your BERNINA 880. Our video clearly demonstrates how to activate the Dual Transport, how to regulate feed quantities and presser foot pressure, how to work on your sewing piece and how to deactivate the Dual Transport again after use. Particularly practical: the "D" in the presser foot designation tells you whether a presser foot is suitable for the Dual Transport.
BERNINA 880: how to sew and quilt with the BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR).
In this instructional video you learn how to free-motion sew and quilt with the BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR). Thanks to the BSR foot, the sewing speed adapts flexibly to the movement of the fabric when sewing with the dropped feed dog. Thus the stitch length is regulated automatically and the stitches remain quite regular and the same length, regardless of how fast or slow you feed in the fabric. You can sew straight or zigzag stitches with the BSR foot.
You can conveniently configure the desired stitches on the display of your BERNINA 880. You also have the option of starting sewing by pressing the button or using the presser foot. There are two different modes available. Either the needle moves permanently, whereby the stitch is automatically regulated and thus remains even, or the needle only moves when the fabric is also moving and stops a few seconds after the fabric stops moving. The second option is particularly recommended if you are not yet familiar with the system. So free-motion sewing and quilting with your BERNINA 880 is a pleasure from the start.
