Thanks to everyone who has participated!

How many individual parts are there in a BERNINA 790?

Last year, we received more than 16,000 responses to this tricky question, from Switzerland, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, the UK, South Africa, the USA, New Zealand, Norway, Denmark and Sweden. And a great first prize awaited the person with the best estimate: a brand new BERNINA 790!

Would you have known the answer? There were four options to choose from and the winner Paola Cauter from Italy was spot on: the BERNINA 790 has exactly 964 individual components!

With the particularly quiet running of the BERNINA Hook, as well as the BERNINA Dual Feed for optimal feeding of the fabric, Ms Cauter is perfectly equipped to sew or embroider even the finest fabrics with ease with her new B 790. The BERNINA Stitch Regulator also makes quilting projects very straightforward. Whatever projects you are planning with your new machine, the BERNINA team congratulates you and wishes you many hours of sewing enjoyment!

We would like to thank all the participants for sending in their estimates.

"I have just found out that I am the winner of the BERNINA competition! I still cannot believe that it is really true and would like to thank BERNINA for this wonderful gift. I have always dreamed of having a BERNINA, it is THE sewing machine par excellence!
I have always enjoyed sewing patchwork and decorative elements, for example making bags and patchwork blankets. But with my new BERNINA 790, I'll soon be able to do much, much more … design my own patterns, try out all the wonderful stitch patterns, quilt with the BSR …and also EMBROIDER! And maybe I'll make myself a dress, or a shirt, or, or ……
What can I say… B790, I'm already in love with you!"
