7 series and DesignWorks Training

Erica and I had the opportunity Monday to receive training on the new 780 (which, by the way, is in the store NOW) so come in and drool over this impressive, elegant sewing machine. I can honestly say, I’m in love. At some point, one of the new 7 series will come home with me.

I had a chance to play a bit with the 780 at BU this year but this was Erica’s first time. We were both impressed with the quality of the stitch and how quiet it was, smooth as butter. Plus the extended arm, dual feed, and large bobbin–oh my!

Speaking of bobbins, BERNINA has created a revolutionary new bobbin system that allows the superior oscillating bobbin system to sew at a 9mm stitch width. And the 9 hook (official bobbin name) holds 80% more thread. Imagine not having to worry about running out of thread while you’re quilting, embroidering, or dressmaking!

Now imagine if your machine could draw for you?! Yesterday was my first time to play with the new DesignWorks software and try out both PaintWorks and CrystalWorks. I see a lot of potential for Paintworks–you can draw, import, and reproduce flawlessly with fabric pins right onto fabric!

I can’t wait to really jump in, play, and produce samples with these! I can totally see one-of-a-kind baby gifts, home decor projects, or a silk blouse getting this embellishment. Check out the machine in action on our Facebook–Erica recorded a video!

I lot of the links above have really nice videos where you can see just how easy it is to use. We can’t wait for the companion machines, 710 & 750 QE, to join us here in the shop soon. I’ll be sure to let you know when they’re in!
