In just one pass, you can cut, sew and finish edges on everything from fine silks and satin to denim, fleece and stretchy fabrics with the greatest of ease. And, although the 700D is an entry-level machine, you can sew like a pro with versatile features that make serging fast and simple.
Sewing with one or two needles, the machine’s 3 and 4 thread overlock capabilities and adjustable tension ensure exactly the finish you want. A differential feed keeps seams smooth and flat. The built-in rolled hem feature is yours at the flick of a switch. And optional accessories let you add new capabilities, including 2 thread stitching as you go. It’s top performance at a beginner price.
Adjustable thread tension – optimal control
With the BERNINA 700D, the thread tension is always under control: The practical slide controls show you at a glance what thread tension is currently set, and enable quick adjustment of the thread tension to the selected stitch pattern and to your material. The 700D thus guarantees you optimal control over thread tension at all times for a precise, accurate stitch pattern, leading you to flawless results in no time flat – especially useful and practical for beginners in the world of serging.
Professional knife drive from above
Thanks to its robust workmanship and clever technology, the BERNINA 700D also delivers outstanding results when cutting and neatening your project. Even thick fabric layers and heavy fabrics won’t deflect the upper knife, which provides exceptionally high cutting force. This means that despite being a compact-class machine, the BERNINA 700D features professional technology that ensures your ability to cut and neaten the edges of your project precisely and professionally, right from the get-go. In this way, the 700D delivers results that stand up to all critical scrutiny – accurate down to the last detail.
Differential feed for flat or gathered seams
With the BERNINA 700D, even serging knits or very fine fabrics is a breeze, since its precise differential feed makes puckered or "wavy" seams a thing of the past. Use the control knob to precisely set the feed to produce smooth, perfectly pucker-free seams with the 700D – even during the serging process. This means that if worse comes to worst and annoying puckers should occur, you can correct the settings in a flash. Where the gathering of a seam is actually desired, the degree of gather can be set equally quickly and easily with the control knob. In this way, the BERNINA 700D gives you extremely easy access to effective creative techniques, while delivering a consistently precise stitch pattern.
Sewing rolled hems – simplicity itself with the rolled-hem lever
With the BERNINA 700D, there’s no need to first change the stitch plate or presser foot when you wish to sew rolled hems. Simply switch to a rolled-hem stitch by moving the rolled-hem lever, which is located next to the feed-dog. And it’s just as easy and straightforward to revert to the normal stitch afterwards by simply moving the lever back to the normal stitch setting. This clever feature of the BERNINA 700D permits swift, interruption-free serging and saves you time, allowing you to focus completely on your creative work.
Convenient lay-in threading system
The BERNINA 700D also aids you during the threading process, which can frequently be a time-consuming affair for beginners. Thanks to the straightforward thread guide, the thread can be laid-in in no time flat during a thread change, and the automatic lower-looper threading system also lets you thread the lower looper effortlessly. This saves time and frustration, and reduces effort to a minimum – so you’ll get the thread change over and done with in a jiffy, enabling you to return to your creative work with next to no delay. In this way, the BERNINA 700D offers incomparable sewing convenience and ease in the compact class – clever and well thought-out down to the smallest detail.
