BERNINA 880+ Sewing
with Embroidery Machine

Function definitely follows form in Bernina's state of the art, game-changing (and did I say, "awesome"?) sewing and embroidery machine. From the elegant and user-friendly interface with a fully integrated touch screen to the largest embroidery field on the home market, 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 Bernina 880+ even cuts the thread for you at the end of a seam or color change in embroidery. The feed dogs raise and lower automatically for free-motion stitching and embroidery. Fully automatic threading is yours at the touch of a button. And when the bobbin runs out, the machine will cue you to replace the bobbin thread. Simply by opening the bobbin door, the bobbin case presents to you, making threading your bobbin easier than ever. And with almost 2 times the amount of thread capacity on the bobbin, you'll sew further and longer than ever before. But worry not -you can wind bobbins while you work.
