The BERNINA 880 boasts plenty of space, with a full 12 inches to the right of the needle for sewing and jumbo embroidery, and a sewing speed of 1,200 stitches per minute. Sewists can choose from 1,764 built-in stitches, modify those stitches, or create their own stitch pattern with the new Stitch Designer. With the one-of-a-kind Stitch Designer, users can draw their own stitches on the B 880’s touch screen and in one click, convert them into a stitch pattern. In addition, the B 880’s embroidery designs can be duplicated and arranged into any desired formation with the new Shaping feature. Embroidery colors can also be manipulated with the new Color Wheel, allowing users to easily coordinate color schemes. Other features include the BERNINA Dual Feed and BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR).
