BERNINA 880 – Enter the world of endless creativity


Extended Freearm

The B 880 includes a meticulously engineered extended freearm area with a full 12 inches of space to the right of the needle and five inches in height. With this extralarge area, you’ll have the added benefit of a jumbo embroidery field, an extended space to expand your creativity.

Extensive stitch and design library

The BERNINA 880 includes a library of over 1,764 stitches, conveniently stored by category for a wide variety of applications. You’ll find the perfect stitch for every sewing project. Over 400 high-quality embroidery designs, including motifs by well-known designers, and 12 font styles are perfect for personalising your projects.

Modern colour touchscreen

The seven-inch touchscreen on the BERNINA 880 offers high-resolution images and brilliant colours. Cutting-edge touchscreen technology lets you choose from a wealth of innovative functions. The BERNINA 880 offers drag and drop, vertical scrolling and the swipe function for deleting motifs easily. It also features a highly intuitive onscreen operating concept providing numerous personalised settings.

The new Stitch Designer

The BERNINA 880 offers hundreds of stitches that are clearly categorized and easily retrieved. With the innovative Stitch Designer you can edit these or create your own stitches. Simply draw your ideas directly on the screen. The BERNINA 880 converts the design with a click into a stitch pattern. You can also change and save existing stitches. The possibilities are endless and your stitch library is continually expanding.

The new Shape Designer

The Embroidery Shaping function of the BERNINA 880 offers the option of duplicating embroidery designs with one click and then arranging them in a desired formation. Whether in a circle, square or heart, new and unconventional designs emerge.

The new Colour Wheel

With 400 built-in designs and alphabets, embroidery is just a click away. Also, your own motifs can be quickly loaded onto the machine via two USB ports. With the the Colour Wheel, designs can be changed easily and coordinated to your favourite colour scheme before you start embroidering. This makes it easy to choose the most beautiful colours for your embroidery project.


The distortion function of the BERNINA 880 enables the customer to distort the stitch patterns in 0.01 mm steps to the right or to the left as well as forward or backward. You can also combine distorted stitch patterns.
