Bernina 770QE Quilting and Embroidery Machine Review

Although you can use a regular sewing machine for quilting, the Bernina 770QE quilting machine has a variety of add-ons and capabilities that really separate the two. Compared with a regular sewing machine, this Bernina 770QE quilting machine boasts a larger amount of workspace (also referred to as ‘throat’), which is perfect for sewing large and huge projects such as curtains sheets, and bedspreads.

And of course, Bernina 770QE can handle multiple layers with ease and is great for quilting projects. You can also easily sew through heavy materials without worrying about the fabric bunching up or getting stuck in the machine.

Moreover, this Bernina 770QE quilting machine comes with a higher stitching speed, meaning that it not only saves time but can also be used on large numbers of projects at one time. When you have less time to complete a quilting project and more items to work on, the ability to sew faster is sure to come in handy – and that’s where this Bernina 770QE high-speed quilting machine comes into play. This Bernina 770QE quilting machine is certainly not for the faint-hearted, as it requires much more from the operator than a standard quilting machine does – and he or she will be rewarded with faster results!

All in all, Bernina 770QE is a quilting machine for those who want quality results from their quilting efforts and are prepared to work hard for it!

Frame, Construction, & Sewing Speed

This Bernina 770QE quilting machine is extremely durable no matter what happens. The reason for this is the material quality and manufacturing technology used, which will be detailed later in this article. Bernina 770QE has a large table to work with as well, so no matter how big your project is, you’ll be comfortable working on it.

The Bernina 770QE quilting machine can sew at a high speed of 1000 stitches per minute, which is impressive. And you don’t have to worry about the problems of jamming since once your material gets jammed, it automatically stops making your work easy.

The Bernina 770QE sewing machine also comes with an impressive range of additional features. For example, the adjustable stitch width and length capabilities enable you to easily alter these important factors depending on the type of design you’re creating. The stitch width adjustments are located on the side of the machine and allow you to change them easily without having to remove your hands from the machine. The maximum stitch width of this Bernina 770QE sewing machine is 9 mm, and the maximum stitch length is 6 mm.

The result is the finest stitching without pressing a button.

Tips for Using Your Quilting Machines

The best quilting machine for you personally will depend largely on your particular needs; commercial users usually prefer a heavy-duty model that can handle many hours of continuous operation without ‘breaking down’, whereas hobbyists may find that a lightweight (although more expensive) model is more suitable.

If, however, you will be using the machine professionally, then we recommend looking into heavier duty machines with features such as variable speed control, which allows the user to match the speed of the machine to the thread used (many quilters prefer using a variety of different threads)

If you’re planning on using your quilting machine in a home environment for fun or profit, then it’s always best to buy one that’s suited for your individual requirements – this may also save money in the long run!
