The B 790 is a sewing and embroidery combo machine with a 7-inch high-resolution color touch screen and programmable foot control, and comes standard with the BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR), which ensures stitches of the exact same length when free-motion sewing. The B 790 is also equipped with the one-of-a-kind Stitch Designer, which allows users to draw their own stitches on the touch screen and in one click, convert them into a stitch pattern. Additionally, it features 554 stitches, including newly designed sideways motion stitches, 270 embroidery designs, and eight embroidery alphabets. The B 790 also comes with the embroidery module that accommodates the Maxi Hoop for a large embroidery area.
The B 880 is BERNINA’s fastest sewing and embroidery model to-date, with more built-in stitch patterns and embroidery designs to choose than ever before, plus innovative new features like Shaping and Color Wheel. The B 880 also offers 400 built-in embroidery designs, as well as the ability to create unique embroidery designs and adjust their color before embroidering begins. In addition, the B 880 has a Jumbo Bobbin with 80 percent more thread capacity than standard bobbins.
Having grown up in the heart of Pennsylvania's quilting country, BERNINA Educator Michelle Kratzer has been involved in sewing and crafts most of her life and has grown fond of embroidery. While initially having concentrated on software and heirloom sewing, Michelle has added embroidered quilts, overlocker/serger projects and home décor to her class offerings over the years. She enjoys sharing her knowledge through teaching and strives to inspire students to explore their creativity.
