Enter the world of endless creativity

Fully automatic features

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 will even cut the thread for you at the end of a seam or color change in embroidery. The feed dog raises and lowers automatically for free-motion stitching and embroidery. And of course, fully automatic threading is yours at the touch of a button.

Endless embroidery options

Mirror image, rotate, combine and resize designs right on the color touch screen. Built-in basting boxes hold difficult to hoop items in place for embroidery. Create arched lettering effects, adjust design density and even bring decorative stitches into embroidery. Automatically color sort complex combinations, preview alternate color options on screen with the help of the Color Wheel, and save to your machine or a USB stick. Wish to stitch out border designs? The Endless Embroidery function will walk you right through the process. Finally, you'll love Absolute Check for perfect design placement.

 
Freearm

Extended Freearm

The BERNINA 880 includes a meticulously engineered extended freearm area with a full 12 inches of space to the right of the needle and five inches in height. With this extra large area, you'll have the added benefit of a jumbo embroidery field, an extended space to expand your creativity.

Feature Library

Extensive stitch and design library

The BERNINA 880 includes a library of over 1,764 stitches, conveniently stored by category for a wide variety of applications. You'll find the perfect stitch for every sewing project.
