BERNINA 790

The BERNINA 790 is the ideal machine for sewing fine fabrics as attested by Kazu Huggler, Japenese-Swiss designer: “The BERNINA 790 lets you embroider designs over a particularly large area, and offers a range of luxury features. The Dual Feed is brilliant at feeding my silky fabrics.” The daughter of a Japanese mother and Swiss father, Kazu Huggler belongs to a new generation of international couture fashion designers. She runs her studio and fashion label “KAZU” in Zurich. Her creations combine Japanese aesthetics and simplicity with Swiss quality. The first dress of her bridal fashion collection was created on a BERNINA 790.

BERNINA 770 QE

For American quilt artist Tula Pink, the BERNINA 770 QE is something very special: “Next to my passion for my designs, I’m equally passionate about BERNINA. The BERNINA 770 QE gives me the space I need for quilting, plus the Stitch Regulator can’t be beat for even stitches.” Tula Pink plays with images the way a poet plays with words, turning innocuous traditional designs into mischievous little critters. Tula’s love affair with textiles began early and an obsession with sewing soon followed. Tula began quilting in an effort to use up her ever-growing stash of fabric so that she could justify buying more. Today, 16 years later, she is a renowned designer and quilter. Tula Pink has designed a quilt from her “Moonshine” fabric collection exclusively for BERNINA.

BERNINA 380

The perfect introduction for the discerning sewer and quilter

  • FHS Free Hand System
  • Extension table
  • Memory function
  • Mirror function

Sew more comfortably with the extension table

A spacious sewing surface is a top priority with the BERNINA 380. The easy-to-attach extension table extends the sewing machine’s work area, ensuring better control over your sewing project. This means that the BERNINA 380 always affords you a clear view of your fabric, even with larger sewing projects. And should you want to use the free arm, the extension table can be removed from the sewing machine as easily as it was attached.

The BERNINA Free Hand System for extra comfort

Offering ambitious sewers and quilters an amazing range of functions, the BERNINA 380 will thrill you with its many innovative features. The 380’s ease of handling makes working with it a genuine pleasure, and allows even beginning sewers to produce precise, high-quality sewing projects. One of its cleverest features is the BERNINA Free Hand System (FHS), which ensures greater efficiency when sewing. Thanks to the BERNINA 380’s FHS knee lever, you can leave your hands on your project while you raise the presser foot and lower the feed-dog. This outstanding functionality is a genuine technical highlight allowing you more control over your fabric, especially when turning your project: your hands remain free to guide the fabric accurately and reliably, thereby preventing accidental slipping of the fabric when the presser foot is raised.

BERNINA 350 PE

Stylish sewing from the first stitch to the last

  • Automatic buttonhole function
  • Extension table
  • Permanent memory function
  • Extensive stitch library

High-precision automatic buttonhole function

Sew buttonholes with precise accuracy! With the BERNINA 350 PE’s automatic buttonhole function, it could hardly be simpler: the preset buttonhole length is stored in the internal memory, letting you sew buttonholes of the exact same length as often as you wish. Here the BERNINA 350 PE solves a difficult problem, since sewing identical buttonholes can be a bit tricky. With the BERNINA 350 PE, broken bobbin thread or buttonholes of different lengths are things of the past: the automatic buttonhole function gives you perfect results in no time flat. The BERNINA 350 PE gives you a choice of two permanently programmed buttonhole styles to ensure that even beginners simply and nearly effortlessly achieve optimal results that will stand up to the most critical scrutiny.

Memory function with 30 storage locations

The BERNINA 350 PE makes room for your personal creativity: its memory offers space for the permanent storage of up to 30 stitch-pattern combinations. This means you needn’t reprogram your personal stitch-pattern combinations each time – the long-term memory of the 350 PE ensures that they’re immediately available the next time you turn on your machine. The direct-selection keys let you access the saved stitches in no time flat – this saves time and increases your enjoyment, allowing you to reuse your own personal favorite combinations or most frequently used stitches effortlessly and whenever you feel like it. This memory functionality of the BERNINA 350 PE offers a premium touch that is by no means a given in entry-level models – Swiss quality, designed with attention to detail.

BERNINA 330

Simple handling, high-quality results

  • Automatic buttonhole function
  • Built-in needle threader
  • Permanent memory function
  • Bright LED sewing light

30 memory locations for your own stitch combinations

The BERNINA 330’s broad variety of stitches are an invitation to try out and experiment, letting you create attractive stitch combinations that you’ll want to use again the next time you turn on your machine. Whereas in the past you’d need a notebook to jot down your stitch combinations, the BERNINA 330 offers a generous long-term memory with 30 free locations for your own stitch creations. This ensures that your favorite or most frequently used stitch combinations are immediately available again at the press of a button. The BERNINA 330 offers an extra touch of luxury missing from many entry-level machines – room for your own creativity. The memory function is also a useful aid when the BERNINA 330 is being used as a sewing machine for sewing classes, since it ensures that required stitch combinations are also available again in the next class, exactly as they were saved. This saves time and guarantees identical results.

Threading made easy

Inexperienced sewers in particular often find it difficult to rethread the machine correctly when changing thread. The BERNINA 330’s built-in needle threader saves you time and effort, making thread changes easy and hassle-free and minimizing the risk of error. No complicated thread guiding, no looking-up in the user manual – the BERNINA 330 pares down the threading process to the bare essentials and prevents problems before they occur, letting you get back to your sewing project faster and leaving you free to focus entirely on the creative side of things.

Customized “skins”: Your own personal BERNINA 215

Who says a sewing machine always has to look the same? For the BERNINA 215, there’s a very special option available: with BERNINA DesignSkins®, you can turn your 215 into an unmistakeable, entirely individual one-off. To do this, you can either select your favorite design from the various designs available at BERNINA DesignSkins® , or use your own photos or graphics to lend an individual look to your BERNINA 215. Your design is printed on an easy-to-apply vinyl skin, enabling you to style your BERNINA 215 according to your wishes and preferences –it doesn’t get any more individual than that!  

BERNINA 215 with built-in needle threader Right from the start, the BERNINA 215 lets you enjoy the optimum convenience of a Swiss precision sewing machine that’s revealed particularly in the details: for instance, its built-in needle threader which lets you rethread the machine when changing spools in the blink of an eye. This saves time and is a genuine help. The BERNINA 215 proves that even state-of-the-art sewing-machine technology needn’t be complicated, and leaves nothing to be desired as an easy-to-operate sewing machine. Ideal for beginners or occasional sewers!

Your desired stitch at the touch of a button The BERNINA 215 offers you a range of the most commonly used practical stitches which are simply set at the touch of a button. Large, clear icons next to the direct-selection keys display the stitch in question, so that you can change the stitch at the press of a button. Thanks to this simple direct stitch selection, the BERNINA 215 is a uniquely user-friendly machine – a combination of versatility and simple handling that will give you years of sewing enjoyment. All the more so, as the BERNINA 215 is a cinch to upgrade with additional special accessories, allowing its potential applications to grow along with your own skills and expectations.

Bernina Q20

The BERNINA Q 20 is designed, engineered, and assembled in Switzerland and comes standard as a sit-down model machine. The generous freearm depth and height provide ample space for managing your larger quilts. Undecided? The Q 20 can be upgraded to a frame model machine.
