The BERNINA 740 offers you comfortable sewing and embellishing with simple, modern operation. Handle large quilts with ease and always get the right tension as you enjoy superb fabric feed and precise, perfect stitches. The BERNINA Hook sews high-precision stitches up to 9 mm in width with speeds up to 1,000 stitches per minute. The bobbin holds 70% more thread than standard bobbins. The extended freearm offers 10 in. to the right of the needle — a grand sewing area for grand ideas! Thread is cut automatically when you reach the end of a seam or a color change in embroidery. The presser foot lowers automatically at the beginning of a seam. Handle special materials with ease; the innovative BERNINA Dual Feed is easily engaged when needed and tucks completely out of the way when it’s not. Choose and save the perfect stitch: alter stitch length or stitch width; alter the needle position; stitch detail alterations are remembered — your personal settings can be saved and retrieved at will and the USB connection even allows you to import and export stitches and stitch patterns or combinations.
