In 1893 Karl Friedrich Gegauf invented the first hemstitching machine, thereby laying the foundation for the BERNINA brand. Since 1932, BERNINA sewing and embroidery machines and sergers have been turning fabrics into dreams. Whether used as a professional work tool or to enliven your leisure hours, a BERNINA is a good decision for years to come – sometimes even for a lifetime.
But that’s not all: In addition to these machines, BERNINA offers you yet more useful products. The wide range of available accessories means you’ll be able to make maximum use of the creative sewing, embroidering and quilting opportunities offered by your BERNINA.
If you want more information on any of these machines please contact our store to set up an appointment!

THE 800 SERIES
The BERNINA 880
Imagine a machine that automatically responds to your needs. The presser foot automatically lowers at the start of a seam and lifts again at the end. The B 880 will even cut the thread for you at the end of a seam or color change in embroidery. The feed dog raises and lowers automatically for free-motion stitching and embroidery. And of course, fully automatic threading is yours at the touch of a button.
THE 700 SERIES
The 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 QEE and 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.
The 770 QEE has all the wonderful features of the 770 QE PLUS embroidery!!!
The BERNINA 740 won over Swiss designer Mathias Ackermann right from the start: “Working with a BERNINA has an inspirational effect on my designs. I love working with the BERNINA 740, and not just because of its well-engineered technology. Features such as the threader and the BERNINA Stitch Regulator thrill me to bits. What’s more, its versatility inspires me with new ideas, and its user-friendliness is simply brilliant. It also sews the finest fabrics, effortlessly”
