BERNINA’s new 7 Series line of sewing, quilting and embroidery machines features the BERNINA 780 E (Embroidery), the BERNINA 750 QE (Quilter’s Edition) and the BERNINA 710.  Each 7 Series machine includes an extended freearm area with 10 inches of space to the right of the needle and a practical extension table with ample space to hold larger sewing projects.  The 7 Series is also equipped with a color touchscreen and the integrated BERNINA Dual Feed, which tames hard-to-manage and fine fabrics. 

BERNINA’s DesignWorks Software Suite offers three modules, CutWork, PaintWork and CrystalWork components, turning your embroidery machine into a mixed media tool.  Each module may be used independently or in combination with the others.  With CutWork, shapes, patterns and designs are cut from multiple layers of fabric.  PaintWork allows the application of pen drawings to fabric and textiles.  Crystal appliqué patterns are created for textiles and garments using CrystalWork.
