I have this gorgeous machine. Shhh don’t tell anyone I said this but “Grand Slam BERNINA! Grand Slam!!”The 7 Series just knocks my socks off. Okay okay I admit it I have the B 780. Sweet!
Again we quilters are rather finicky. We like what we like and frequently we know what we like.
BERNINA built-in so many great features that sometimes it’s a little overwhelming. But they’ve also given us the simulators giving us a chance to experiment without feeling like we’re going to ‘break’ something.
Before the sewing computer was delivered I downloaded the simulator as I knew this machine is different and I wanted to know what it’s about. *When reading the images below the pictures flow from top to bottom with their text. There are some notes on the side that refer back.
As a follow up to yesterdays blog on the B 710/B 750 I’m focusing in on the B 780 today. It’s different enough that solo is the way to go.

Adjusting the height of the Hover:
Just a note (some of these are unofficial names)
I’m enjoying one amazing feature: the ? to get answers to all pertinent questions.
Just tape the ? and then tap something on the screen to learn more about it. BERNINA – sometimes there’s just text sometimes there’s videos i.e. threading, winding the bobbin etc.
Now you’re ready to get back to the all important stitching. Now I’ve mentioned in a previous blog that I love the knee lift. It took some getting used to but now! oh Hot Dog! it makes me happy. Just a simple nudge with the knee and the foot lifts just enough to get the next pieces in and set for that all important quarter-inch seam. If you’re like me you’ve picked up the quarter-inch foot. Love!

I, too, have a 780 and love it. Had it a year, but still–and probably always will be–learning.
I agree, the 780 Rocks! I have had several top of the line machines including several Berninas, and the 780 is my hands-down favorite. It is like it was designed exactly for me!
