The BERNINA 7 Series is equipped with a carefully designed extended freearm with ten inches / 254 mm of space to right of the needle—plenty of room for big sewing projects. The Freearm gives you access to cuffs, collars, and other difficult to reach areas, as well as allowing large designs to be embroidered on the oversized embroidery area.
When needed, the BERNINA 780 can also be upgraded with a diverse selection of accessories.
Optional Endless Embroidery
The color touch screen gives you direct access to endless embroidery options. Use the touch screen to mirror images, rotate, resize, as well as combine designs. Personalize embroidery patterns with decorative stitches or alphabets right on the touch screen. Visualize your design by trying different color options and viewing them right on the machine's screen. Use Bernina's Absolute Check by way of the touch screen to ensure that your design will fit within the boundaries of your hoop with Optional Embroidery Module.
The BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR)
The BERNINA 780 is equipped with the BSR function. The BSR foot provides high-speed free-motion stitching assistance with both straight and zigzag stitch options and it comes standard with the machine.
The Bernina Stitch Regulator allows you to easily enjoy free-motion quilting on all fabrics. The BSR gives you the ability to effortlessly sew quilt free-motion by coordinating the movement of the needle with the movement of your project. When the project moves underneath the needle, the needle moves at the same speed of the project. This helps you produce consistent stitch lengths throughout your sewing.

BERNINA Dual Feed
When sewing one fabric on top of another it can be difficult to manage without having the fabrics shift. The innovative BERNINA Dual Feed Foot tames hard-to-manage fabrics. The Dual Feed Foot gives you the effect of another set of feed dogs on top of your project, sandwiching your project to keep it together.
Still don't understand how Dual Feed works? This video explains it more thoroughly.
Greater Sewing Pleasure
The 7 Series machines respond to your needs. For example, the presser foot automatically lowers at the start of a seam and lifts again at the end. The machine will even cut the thread for you at the end of your seam or colour change. Also included is a practical extension table with ample space to hold your larger sewing projects.
Total Stitch Control
The BERNINA 780 provides an exclusive level of stitch control. Whether altering the stitch length, stitch width, or needle position—or even creating combinations—the machine will remember the stitch details for you.

A World Premiere: The New BERNINA 9 Hook (7 Series Sewing Machines).
With the launch of the 7 Series, BERNINA presents a world’s first, the BERNINA 9 Hook (B9 Hook). Combining the two best hook technologies, the B9 Hook is patent pending. The new heart of the BERNINA machine features a novel, centrally-placed driver, which allows the B9 Hook to run steady and quiet. The B9 Hook sews high-precision stitches up to 9 mm in width with speeds up to a 1,000 stitches per minute. And the bobbin has 80 percent more thread capacity than our standard bobbins, allowing you to sew longer without interruption. The B9 Hook is made of high-quality materials that allow the thread to run smoothly with consistent tension.
