With three embroidery hoops included, it is easy to find the right hoop for each size of your embroidery designs. You can embroider motifs up to 6-1/4" x 10-1/4" (260mm x 160mm) without re-hooping. Two other hoops included have nearly 4-3/4" x 7" (120mm x 180mm) and nearly 2" x 2-3/4" (50mm x 70mm) embroidery area.
The embroidery hoops are easy to open and close with a quick-release system. The automatic hoop detection ensures that you see the defined embroidery area of each hoop on the touch screen, so you can optimally adapt your embroidery design. All hoops include a template to ensure precise positioning of fabric.
Easy and quick navigation with the 5-inch color touchscreen and multi-function knobs — find the right stitch or embroidery design and optimize the thread tension by using the 5-inch color touch screen which is optimally positioned in the center of the machine. Or quickly change the stitch length or width or position your embroidery design via the multi-function knobs.
Access the sewing or embroidery tutorials for tips on how to operate your machine or use the creative consultant for advice on the best stitch for your chosen fabric.
Bright and spacious for fast and accurate sewing — four bright LED lights light up the sewing area, which offers 9" (230mm) of space right of the needle.
The slide-on freearm extension table gives you extra space and comfort for large sewing or quilting projects.
Decorative and quilting stitches for magical embellishments! Of course, you can hem and zigzag stitch with the b79, sew stretchy t-shirt fabrics and even choose between 17 buttonholes. But there is much more than just the utility stitches: create truly exciting embellishments with 133 decorative and 35 quilting stitches … 500 stitches in all!
You want to modify included stitches or create your own ones? Everything is possible with the Stitch Designer. Your individual stitch settings are temporarily saved, and you can store them in your personal memory for future projects. There are endless possibilities with Stitch Designer!
With the automatic tie-off function you no longer have to stitch backwards to prevent the seam from unraveling. Simply press the tie-off button at the end of the seam. Next, the automatic thread cutter button, the threads are cut, and your seam is finished! You want it even faster? Program these functions for your foot control with back-kick function — tap your heel once, the seam is automatically finished.
Integrated Dual Feed makes sure that all kinds of materials are evenly fed from above and below.
With the semi-automatic needle threader threading is a breeze — the presser foot is automatically lowered to the correct position and the additional thread cutter holds the thread in place.
With the 7mm stitch plate, you can sew beautiful decorative stitches with a stitch width of up to 7 mm. Also, the straight stitch plate comes as standard accessory with the b79 - for impeccable embroidery results. Your machine automatically detects the stitch plate used, shows you all the compatible needles and automatically adapts the stitch width range.
The knee lever for raising or lowering the presser foot will make your sewing even more comfortable, as your hands are free to guide the fabric. And the easy-to-engage.
