The Bernina 790 Pro: A crafter’s Dream Machine

The B 790 PRO is renowned for its precision, versatility, and ease of use, making it a top choice for crafters who demand the best. One of the standout features of this machine is the Bernina Stitch Regulator (B.S.R.), a revolutionary technology that ensures consistent stitch length during free motion quilting, regardless of how fast or slow you move the fabric. This feature is a game-changer for quilters, providing the confidence to create smooth, uniform stitches on a variety of projects.


Unlocking the Potential of the B.S.R.

To fully unlock the potential of the B.S.R., start by practicing on scrap fabric. Familiarize yourself with the feel of the fabric moving under the needle and experiment with different speeds. The B.S.R. has two modes: Mode 1 is ideal for beginners, as it automatically stops the machine when you stop moving the fabric, while Mode 2 continues to stitch at a set speed, offering a more fluid quilting experience.


Here are a few tips to maximize your success with the B.S.R.:

Start Slow: Begin with simple designs and gradually increase complexity as you become more comfortable.

Stabilize Your Fabric: Use a good quality batting and baste your layers securely to prevent shifting.

Experiment with Foot Pressure: Adjusting the foot pressure can help accommodate different thicknesses of fabric and batting.


Embracing Manual Techniques:

While the B.S.R. offers unparalleled consistency, mastering manual free motion quilting techniques on the B 790 PRO can add a unique, personal touch to your projects. Manual quilting allows for more organic movement and creativity, perfect for adding character to your quilts.

Practice Makes Perfect: Spend time practicing your movements and stitch regulation without the B.S.R. This will improve your control and confidence.

Vary Your Speed: Learning to control the speed of your stitching manually allows for more varied stitch lengths, which can add texture and dimension to your quilting.


Utilize the B 790 PRO Features

Take advantage of the machine's high-speed capabilities and the knee lifter to keep your hands free for guiding the fabric.


Combining Techniques for Creative Expression:

The true beauty of quilting on the B 790 PRO lies in the ability to combine the precision of the B.S.R. with the individuality of manual techniques. Use the B.S.R. for areas where uniformity is key, and manual methods to add flair and texture to your quilt. Experiment with different combinations to find what works best for your style and project.


Final Thoughts

The Bernina 790 Pro offers an exceptional platform for quilters to explore their creativity and achieve professional-quality results. Whether you're a seasoned quilter or just starting, mastering the B.S.R. and manual quilting techniques will unlock endless possibilities for your quilting projects. Remember, the journey of quilting is a personal one, filled with learning and growth. Embrace the process, experiment with new techniques, and above all, enjoy the creation of your textile art.
