With the new 4-Point Placement the positioning of your embroidery or quilting design is extremely easy and precise. This new function allows you to place your designs to precisely suit your project. Simply define four points on the fabric in the hoop and the design is placed proportionally or can be morphed to fit the created boundary.




Pinpoint Laser
  • Works in every needle position
  • Indicates the exact needle entry point
  • Next generation precision

Enjoy pinpoint precision by seeing exactly where the needle will enter the fabric in every needle position. The BERNINA Pinpoint Laser marks your start and travel points as you sew and embroider.




Thread the needle automatically
  • You are ready for sewing in a breeze
  • Simply push a button
  • Watch the machine thread the needle

The Automatic Needle Threader helps you get started with a different thread. From a needle size of 70, the upper thread can be automatically threaded into standard sewing needles and embroidery needles. Conveniently and quickly, every time!




WiFi Connectivity and BERNINA Stitchout App
  • Design transfer from/to V9 Software
  • Monitor embroidery process via App
  • Real-time status updates remotely

Since WiFi is enabled on the B 790 PRO, you can transfer designs from your BERNINA Embroidery Software 9 (optional) directly to the machine, or vice versa. And thanks to the new BERNINA Stitchout App, the embroidery process can be monitored on your smartphone remotely. The in-app notifications and real-time status updates will make your embroidery more convenient.




Customisable Quilt Designs
  • Quilt like a PRO
  • Modify stitches per inch
  • Unlimited scaling

The new Customisable Quilt Designs (.bqm) bring the functionality of professional longarm quilting to your embroidery machine. Unlimited scaling possibilities, the ability to modify the stitches per inch (SPI) and enhanced quilt securing functions enable you to achieve perfect computerized quilting on your embroidery machine.




Create your individual stitch
  • …with the Stitch Designer
  • Edit existing stitch patterns
  • Easily move the stitch points with the multi-function knobs

Create your own stitches by drawing your ideas right on the touch screen. With a touch or turn on the multi-function knobs, the B 790 PRO turns your design into a stitch pattern or alters existing stitches as you wish. Save your very own stitch creations to expand your stitch library.




Align designs as you wish
  • Both horizontally and vertically
  • Center, left, right, top, bottom
  • Align multiple lettering lines

Easily align and distribute embroidery designs horizontally and vertically. Use Multi-line Lettering and Text Alignment to personalize your text placement. With the line break, lettering of up to 10 lines is possible.




You imagine it. You shape it.
  • Combine default formations
  • Arrange embroidery patterns
  • Any formation is possible

Multiply designs with one click and arrange them in a desired formation. Whether in a circle, square or heart, with the integrated Shape Designer new and unique embroidery designs emerge.



More editing possibilities
  • Embroider endlessly
  • Group & ungroup designs
  • Rearrange designs

Undo or redo steps while editing or combining designs to return to your initial position. Change the stitchout sequence of design layers or use Rearrange in combination with Group & Ungroup for further editing possibilities. With the Endless Embroidery function, you can easily repeat and align embroider designs to make continuous borders.




Smart embroidery technology even smarter
  • Perfect becomes superb
  • Another increase in embroidery speed

  • Optimum visibility while sewing
  • Easy engaging

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

  • Sew & embroider for a longer period of time
  • More time for your creativity
