Kazu Huggler for BERNINA
We are pleased to announce our partnership with Kazu Huggler. Belonging to a new generation of international fashion designers, she lives in Zurich, where she owns her own shop and fashion label, "KAZU". The daughter of a Japanese mother and a Swiss father, she grew up in Japan and Switzerland. Her designs are mostly inspired by traditional Japanese culture.
For the launch of the 7 Series, Kazu Huggler created an exclusive dress. She designed the fabric herself and produced it in Switzerland. The design features a crane—a traditional Japanese symbol that stands for luck and longevity. The cut is inspired by the traditional Japanese kimono.
A World Premiere
The New BERNINA 9 Hook
With the launch of the 7 Series, BERNINA presents a world’s first, the BERNINA 9 Hook (B 9 Hook). Combining the two best hook technologies, the B 9 Hook is patent pending.
The new heart of the BERNINA machine features a novel, centrally-placed driver, which allows the B 9 Hook to run steady and quiet. The B 9 Hook sews high-precision stitches up to 9 mm in width with speeds up to a 1,000 stitches per minute. And the bobbin has 80 percent more thread capacity than our standard bobbins, allowing you to sew longer without interruption.
Finally, the B 9 Hook is made of high-quality materials that allow the thread to run smoothly with consistent tension.
