Sewing and embroidery at their finest


BERNINA 790 – comfortable sewing and embellishing of the finest fabrics



The heart of the BERNINA 7 Series features a novel, centrally placed driver, which allows the BERNINA Hook to run fast yet quietly. The BERNINA Hook sews high-precision stitches up to 9 mm in width with speeds up to 1,000 stitches per minute. The bobbin holds up to 70% more thread than standard bobbins allowing you to sew longer without interruption.

Extended Freearm for Grand Ideas

The BERNINA 7 Series includes a meticulously engineered extended freearm with 10 inches of space to the right of the needle. Not only does the BERNINA 790 provides you with ample space for big, beautiful sewing and embroidery projects, with its 9mm stitch width, it is also ideally suited for decorative stitches. The extra-large embroidery module lets you stitch out maxi-sized motifs. And should your ambitions grow, the B 790 can be updated with a wealth of accessories.

Create Your Own Stitches

The BERNINA 790 features a very special innovative function: the Stitch Designer. Create your own stitches by drawing your ideas right on the touch screen. With a click, the BERNINA 790 transforms your design into a stitch pattern. Or alter existing stitches as it takes your fancy. Save your very own stitch creations to steadily expand your stitch library.

BERNINA Adaptive Thread Tension

The BERNINA Adaptive Thread Tension, a BERNINA innovation, provides ideal thread tension for each and every stitch type, in any variation. The tension is electronically adjusted to the selected stitch width, length, speed, and needle position on each penetration of the needle into the fabric. The result is the finest stitching without pressing a button.

The BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR)

The BERNINA 790 is equipped with the BSR function. The BSR foot assists you with free-motion sewing and quilting with a straight or zigzag stitch, ensuring stitches of the exact same length even at variable sewing speeds. It comes standard with the machine.


The innovative BERNINA Dual Feed tames hard-to-manage fabrics providing superb fabric feed and optimum visibility while sewing. Easy to engage when needed, the BERNINA Dual Feed tucks completely out of the way when it’s not.

Sew with Even Greater Ease

The BERNINA 790 accomplishes many tasks all by itself. The presser foot lowers automatically at the beginning of a seam. Threading is semi-automatic, and the thread is cut automatically when you reach the end of a seam, or when you wish to change colors while embroidering. Moreover, a practical extension table, which yet again significantly increases your work area, is included in the standard package

Beautiful Embroidery Is Simplicity Itself

The BERNINA 790 is our embroidery expert. Switch to embroidery mode directly via the touch screen. Embroidery mode lets you easily position, mirror, rotate and resize motifs. Design editing on the B 790 offers a wealth of additional options, letting you create curved lettering effects, alter stitch density, and combine decorative stitches or alphabets with embroidery designs. Complex combinations can even be re-sequenced according to color, and alternative color options can be reviewed before stitching out. The Check function lets you position the design precisely before embroidering. The finished design can be saved directly on the machine or on a USB stick. The embroidery module comes standard with the machine.
