The  Bernina 880e PLUS is a complete all rounder. It is considered the flagship of the Bernina sewing and embroidery machines and is for the experienced and technically demanding sewer. Featuring an extended free arm area of 300mm (12") to the right of the needle and a height of 120mm (5") not only means the 880e PLUS boasts plenty of space for large projects but also means a larger embroidery area. The Bernina Hook features the Jumbo Bobbin for greater thread capacity. For tricky fabrics or pattern matching (where even feed is paramount) the built in dual feed system is easy to use. There are many automatic features on the 880e PLUS to make life easier. Presser foot raising and lowering at the start and end of a seam, needle threading at the push of a button, there is even automatic thread cutting at the end of a seam or after a colour change during embroidering. Choose from the many categories built into the machine including 1764 stitches and 462 high quality built-in embroidery designs and 21 built-in embroidery alphabets.

Use the large 7" TFT touch screen to create your design. We love it because it is just so simple to use and incorporates an easy to use help system with clear animations. For example: If there is an icon you are not sure about on the machine then simply touch the question mark symbol, followed by the icon you are confused by and an explanation will appear on the screen!

Stitch Designer, a built in system on the 880e PLUS, let's you draw your own design directly onto the screen and then converts it to your unique stitch pattern. You can even modify existing patterns. Similarly, the built in Shape Designer let's you modify embroideries to your own requirements. Using the Bernina Colour Wheel (as illustrated in our images) you can experiment with the colours of an embroidery to get the best combination before embroidering out the design.

Using the embroidery unit enables you to stitch out any of the 462 built in embroidery designs and 21 alphabets on the 880e PLUS. The embroidery unit is easy to use, simply slide on and switch to embroidery mode with the touch screen pen on the colour touch screen. The embroidery unit comes with hoops, designed to hold your fabric perfectly flat and tensioned, ready for embroidery. It will move the embroidery hoop around as the machine stitches, giving a beautifully sharp embroidery. The embroidery area on the unit is 400mm x 210mm and can embroider up to 1000spm! Clarity on the touch screen makes it easy to resize, rotate, move and mirror images. Drop and drag editing, the ability to check individual stitch locations, stitch density and even setting a fabric type make for very precise designs. The screen will display an array of information such as stitch out time, thread colour, size and stitch and transferring designs is easy using the USB port.
