The BERNINA Hook: The heart of the BERNINA 7 Series machines, a new hook system that allows the hook to run faster yet more quietly. The BERNINA Hook delivers quality stitching up to 9 mm wide at speeds of up to 1,000 stitches per minute. The bobbin holds 70% more thread than a standard bobbin, allowing you to sew for longer without interruption.

BERNINA Adaptive Thread Tension: The BERNINA Adaptive Thread Tension, a BERNINA innovation, provides ideal thread tension while sewing to achieve perfect stitch quality on both sides of the fabric. Once the tension is set according to the thread and fabric being used, BERNINA Adaptive Thread Tension will constantly check the thread tension, adjusting it automatically when needed. The result is simply the finest quality stitching.

The BERNINA Stitch regulator (BSR): The BERNINA 790e PLUS 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. Beginners quickly gain confidence with the BSR, while experienced quilters acquire additional self-assurance. The BSR foot is standard with the 790e PLUS.

BERNINA Dual Feed: The innovative BERNINA Dual Feed helps with 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.

Semi-automatic needle threader: The BERNINA 790e PLUS responds to your needs. The presser foot automatically lowers at the start of a seam and lifts at the end. The machine will cut the thread for you at the end of your seam or colour change. Also included is a practical extension table with ample space to hold your larger sewing projects.
