User Manual


Easy and quick navigation with touchscreen and multi-function knobs

Find the right stitch or embroidery design and optimize the thread tension by using the 5-inch color touch screen, which is optimally positioned in the center of the machine. Or quickly change the stich length or width or position your embroidery design via the multi-function knobs . Access the sewing or embroidery tutorials for tips on how to operate your machine or use the creative consultant for advice on the best stitch for your chosen fabric.

Bright and spacious for fast and accurate sewing

You won't be left in the dark with the four bright LEDs lighting up the sewing area, which offers you 230 mm of space right of the needle. The slide-on freearm extension table gives you extra space and comfort for large sewing or quilting projects.

Tie-off function and automatic thread cutter

With the automatic tie-off function you no longer have to stitch backwards to prevent the seam from unravelling. Simply press the tie-off button at the end of the seam. Next, the automatic thread cutter button, the threads are cut, and your seam is finished! You want it even faster? Program these functions for your foot control with back-kick function – tap your heel once, the seam is automatically finished, and the threads cut off!

Decorative and quilting stitches for magical embellishments

Of course, you can hem and zigzag stitch with the b79, sew stretchy t-shirt fabrics and even choose between 17 buttonholes. But there is much more than just the utility stitches: create truly exiting embellishments with 133 decorative and 35 quilting stitches. You want to modify included stitches or create your own ones? Everything is possible with the Stitch Designer. Your individual stitch settings are temporarily saved, and you can store them in your personal memory for future projects.

The right presser foot for any application

Eight presser foot soles are included with your bernette 77. You can select the appropriate presser foot according to fabric or project. For example, you can choose the zigzag foot for zigzag stitches, the embroidery foot for your decorative stitches and the automatic buttonhole foot with slide for your buttonholes. With the appropriate foot, you can accomplish your sewing project quickly and with excellent stitch quality. The convenient presser foot recommendation indicates the best presser foot for the chosen stitch.

Embroidery made easy

The basting stitches ensure your fabric doesn’t slip from the stabilizer. You no longer have to cut off the threads when you change color or trim them between jump stitches. All the threads are cut off automatically while you embroider.

Creative possibilities with embroidery designs

With 208 embroidery designs and 7 embroidery alphabets installed, a wide selection of motifs is at your fingertips. The motifs can be edited on the touch screen, so you can easily rotate, flip, or combine design elements. Want something truly yours? Upload your own embroidery motifs or motifs you edited and combined in your BERNINA Toolbox software via USB flash drive. The b79 is compatible with most embroidery design formats – no need to convert files in a software program anymore.

Embroidery module with three different-sized hoops and hoop detection

With three hoops included, it is easy to find the right hoop for each size of your embroidery designs. You can embroider motifs with up to 260 x 160 mm without re-hooping. The hoops are easy to open and close with a quick release system . The automatic hoop detection ensures that you see the defined embroidery area of each hoop on the touch screen, so you can optimally adapt your embroidery design.

BERNINA Toolbox, the easy-to-use embroidery software

Go creative with the Lettering and Editing modules and 300 additional embroidery designs and 100 additional fonts included. Each module has a large selection of embroidery motifs to download from the BERNINA Cloud. You can even edit the embroidery motifs directly in the cloud, using your tablet or laptop.
