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 freearm 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 backwards to prevent the seam from unravelling. 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 USB flash drive.

Sorry haven't tried it yet
I really like this machine. It has a nice size table and the embroidery aspect of it is easy to use. A case to store the embroidery arm and attachments would be really helpful.
I am a hobbyist at best and self taught (via YouTube). I had been considering an upgrade for some time. Chatted with the online sales person and several options were made. Buying the B79 was very much an impulse purchase. It arrived quickly and I have had it a few weeks now and my only gripe is that I have to go to work rather than stay home trying out all the amazing features. It sews beautifully, and I do not regret buying it at all. I think this would suit beginners and experienced seamstresses alike and will probably be the only sewing machine I will now ever need.
