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. For more information visit www.bernina.com/7series.
