Bernette 79 Sewing Machine and Embroidery Machine

Our most excellent, sewing and embroidery machine

The b79 is our top of the line model. It offers everything a creator needs – this two-in-one machine combines all the sewing functions of the b77 with the embroidery perks of the b70 DECO. The b79 makes creating a unique and special handmade dress with delicately embroidered flower embellishments easy. Newbies, never fear, this machine is so simple to use, you’ll become the maker you’ve always wanted to be in no time. This attractively priced sewing and embroidery, the computerized machine is perfect for everyone. It’s incredibly easy to use, offers a wide range of functions, and lets you be your most creative.

  • Multi-function knobs for quick operation

  • Extensive sewing and embroidery area

  • 500 stitches and endless possibilities with Stitch Designer

  • Dual feed for fast, even fabric feed

  • Programmable foot control with back-kick function

  • Embroidery module with 3 hoops and embroidery hoop detection

  • 5-inch color touchscreen for easy navigation

  • 2 BERNINA Toolbox software modules included

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 stitch 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 free-arm extension table gives you extra space and comfort for large sewing or quilting projects.

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.

Tie-off function and automatic thread cutter

With the automatic tie-off function you no longer have to stitch backward to prevent the seam from unraveling. 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!

Even more convenient sewing

With the semi-automatic needle, threader threading is a breeze – the presser foot is automatically lowered to the correct position and the additional thread cutter holds the thread in place. The knee lever for raising or lowering the presser foot will make your sewing even more comfortable, as your hands are free to guide the fabric. And the easy-to-engage, integrated Dual Feed makes sure that all kinds of materials are evenly fed from above and below.

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.

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 a USB flash drive. The b79 is compatible with most embroidery design formats – no need to convert files in a software program anymore.

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.

For best sewing and embroidery results

With the 7 mm stitch plate, you can sew beautiful decorative stitches with a stitch width of up to 7 mm. Also, the straight stitch plate comes as a standard accessory with the b79 – for impeccable embroidery results. Your machine automatically detects the stitch plate used, shows you all the compatible needles, and automatically adapts the stitch width range.

I have recently had my ancient manual Singer sewing machine serviced and I have just used... it for the first time . It has never worked as nicely as this! Thank you very much. The shop is not hard to find and parking is literally outside. The gentleman who served me who I assume is the proprietor was very helpful and lifted the machine out of my car for me and eventually back into it as it’s too heavy for me these days. So all things considered I’m very pleased I chose this shop to service my machine .read more

Went to look at sewing machines as I am planning to buy one but have zero sewing... experience. Duncan was super friendly and patiently guided me through the different sewing machines available - a nice range is available at the shop - explaining to me some of the basic stuff and the various features coming with the different models. I still haven't decided what I would like to buy but this was still really helpful. Definitely recommend this shop.read more

My partner wanted to replace an old singer slant machine he had. He saw a Singer... Confidence 7463 on Sewing Directs website but didn't know if it would be right for him. He contacted the shop. The man was polite, friendly & so helpful. He said the machine was easy to use & even ok for beginners. My partner decided to buy the machine. The man even took time to take the address & payment details over the phone. Straight away we got delivery details & that FedEx would be delivering 48hrs later, that is exactly what happened. From start to finnish it was excellent service, we can not fault it. We would highly recommend the shop & would not hesitate to use them again. Thank you Sewing Direct for a streamlined shopping experience. Excellent.read more

The response from the shop was quick, and the man I spoke with was really helpful. I managed to get my repair done in an hour, which was amazing, as was in a rush for it. I'd absolutely recommend this place to anyone!read more

Always very helpful when I go in. I am new to seeing and they've taught me alot and are... never afraid to give me advice! They never trick you into buying anything you don't need (like many other shops do) and they even recommend stuff to you that they dont supply because they are more bothered about helping you than making quick money and taking advantage. Thank you very much for the great customer service!read more

The Sewing and Knitting Centre did a long overdue service on my rather ancient sewing... machine and did a marvelous job. I used my machine for the first time today and it really purred along where before it was definitely clattering along! They kept me well informed with the progress of the service and it was ready before the promised time. An advantage is the easy parking outside or in adjacent streets. Would recommend them.read more

I found Duncan at Sewing Direct to be extremely helpful and generous in helping me find a... particular set of Dinosaur fat quarters I wanted to purchase. Despite them being out of stock everywhere he was able to source a pack from his suppliers and gave me a 10% discount code. This code turned out to be a £10 off code instead and rather than expecting me to pay more towards my purchase he very generously honoured the £10 off. I would thoroughly recommend Duncan and his company for going above and beyond to help me. This is definitely a business worth going back to again and again.read more

Duncan at the sewing and knitting centre was always just a click away if I needed any... assistance. Yarn came very quick and was vacuum packed for ease of posting. I have not used it yet but colours are spot on as to sample shown on website. They also do fabric which looks tempting. I would highly recommend this company.read more
