Why choose the Bernette B79?
An incredible new combined sewing and embroidery machine from Bernina Bernette.
The B79 is packed full of great features…never has a Bernette been so much like a Bernina!
500 stitch selections, including 3 sewing alphabets; plus on-screen stitch designer, 200+ embroidery designs and 7 embroidery fonts.
And that’s not all…sew at a silky smooth 1000 spm, thanks to the top-loading bobbin with rotary hook action and well balanced components.
The Bernette B79 sewing and embroidery machine uses the same interface as high-end Bernina models. It has a host of like for like features, for example…Electronic foot control with programmable back-kick function; Knee lifter; 15 Needle positions; Multifunction control knobs and easy to navigate touch screen.
The Dual Feed is invaluable when sewing on any type of fabric, but its best used with leather, denim, vinyl, velvet, terry toweling, fake fur, fleece and perfect for quilting multiple layers, sewing checked patterns or any slippery hard to sew materials. Push it out of position when not in use, or just leave it down or just use it all the time…that’s what I do!
What is Dual Feed..? Dual Feed is a separate upper fabric feed, which operates from above in conjunction with the lower feed, they grab the fabric and move it forward or rearward depending on the stitch length. It can be used for straight stitch as well as any other 7mm wide stitches. This feature alone is worth the outlay.

However, other superb features include 5” colour touchscreen, with Creative Consultant help guide recommends best stitch, needle, foot for the selected fabric. Sewing tutorial contains important information to help you get the most from your B79 Bernette. The screen also shows presser foot recommendations and for each foot additional information is available.
Also included in the array of high-end Bernina features, this Bernette B79 uses the reprogrammable Back-kick foot control. It comes preset to operate just like a regular foot speed control when pressed forward with your toe, but if you tap it with your heal, the needle will rise to its highest point, ready to remove the fabric. This heal tap function can be changed as required, may be set it to secure tie-in, or cut both the top and bottom threads. Imagine not needing to snip the thread ends at the end of a seam. That alone could save an hour over a period instead of looking and reaching for the scissors at the end of every seam.

In the past you had to look for an embroidery design that suited your model, that is a thing of the past if you choose this Bernette b79 sewing and embroidery machine. It will sew out all the main embroidery file formats, it’s a real winner when you looking for a design that was only available in the past for lets say a Husqvarna, now simply load that hus embroidery design into the Bernette via the USB port and let the B79 sewing it out. This is a unique feature for Bernette. The B79 will also read/sew other embroidery file formats. eg (Pfaff vip and vp3), (Husqvarna hus), (Janome jef), (Brother pes) as well as exp, pec, dst file formats.
A neat function is the basting stitch, which helps fix the fabric in place on the stabiliser before stitching out, that way you may not need to hoop your material, just use the basting stitch to secure the material to the stabiliser which is already in the hoop.
One of our images shows the embroidery stitching sample we stitched using a variety of threads including the difficult to stitch metallic thread. The B79 managed no problem and as you can see the sample looks great.
Includes a 30 cm x 45 cm extension table to help steady larger items while stitching.
Embroidery software is also included in the box. Well, you have to download it, but the access codes are in the box with instructions.
