The Bernina 7 Series is released in the UK and Republic of Ireland
August 2012 saw the launch of the 7 Series introducing the exclusive new BERNINA 9 Hook (B 9 Hook).
Combining the two best hook technologies; the stitch quality and flexibility of the classic BERNINA CB shuttle with the speed and quietness of a rotary hook, the B 9 Hook is Patent Pending.
The new heart of the BERNINA machine features a novel, centrally-placed driver, which allows the B 9 Hook to run quickly and quietly. The B 9 Hook sews high-precision stitches up to 9 mm in width with speeds up to a 1,000 stitches per minute.The bobbin has 80 percent more thread capacity than our standard bobbins allowing you to sew longer without interruption.
The B 9 Hook is made of high-quality materials that allow the thread to run smoothly at consistent tension.
