What is the Bernette B70
This B70 is an embroidery-only machine. This means that you can only embroidery on it and you will still have to use your regular machine. This machine has a 5-inch color touch screen. On this centered screen you can design your embroidery motif. There are also multi-functional knobs to help you position your design. A couple of key features are:
- 850 stitches per minute
- Semi-automatic needle threader
- 2-inch by 6.3-inch embroidery area
- 208 built in embroidery designs
- 7 embroidery alphabets
- Thread sensors
- BERNINA Toolbox
Now let’s get a little more detail about a few of those features mentioned above. The speed of the B70 is impressive. It is also awesome that it already comes with so many designs! You can choose to rotate and edit each design a little bit. What exactly is a thread sensor? You may already know that this is a great feature. The machine can sense when your bobbin is getting low and let you know. This is one of the smartest designs. How many times have you been sewing along to only later realize you were out of thread and you have been sewing nothing?
The last feature of the BERNINA toolbox is a software program. This is used through your tablet or laptop. In this program you can create and customize your own designs. In it are 300 extra embroidery designs and 100 more fonts.
This is truly an awesome machine with a lot of great features.

This is a great selection of items. You may even buy extra accessories. One accessory that is worth it is the Bernina DesignWorks CutWork tool and CutWork needles. This unique accessory will allow you to cut out any embroidery design and give your creations even more originality.
What makes this fantastic
The B70 really is a fantastic machine. It stands out compared to other embroidery machines such as Janome and Brother. The Bernette B70 has more than double the amount of embroidery designs in some cases. Also, while the Brother does match the number of designs, the embroidery area is much larger on the Bernette and better equipped for editing the motifs.
The Bernette B70 is a little technical with the programs, however it is still easy to use. Imagine the endless possibilities to create unique embroideries and even cutouts. Being able to use your tablet or laptop to access more designs is a huge selling point.
How does it compare to the other Bernette 70s series
The Bernette B70 is something to fall in love with. However, is it the right embroidery machine for you? Let’s take a look at three models in the 70s series to know which one you should buy.
- The B79 - This is a sewing and embroidery machine. This is the top of the line in the series. It has all the same embroidery features. If you are looking to replace your current regular sewing machine and upgrade to an embroidery machine as well, then this is for you. The B79 can handle 1000 stitches per minute and 850 stitches per minute for the embroidery. It contains unique features such as multi-format reading, hoop detection and embroidery tutorial. The sewing machine itself has presser foot recommendations and stitch plate detection.
B77 - This is a sewing machine only. You may find it odd that we have included this in the comparison. However, if you’re looking to just get the embroidery machine and fall in love with the Bernette machines you may end up wanting to get this as your new regular machine. It is also important to note that this machine has high end functions like stitch-plate detection, stitch width limitation and presser foot recommendation.
B70 - Let’s recap this machine. This can only embroider. So, if you already have a machine that you love, use daily, and don’t want to replace it, then you should get the B70. This is a high-class embroidery machine. It will be easy for you to jump from either machine to continue to create a unique sewing project. The B70 can also switch from monochromatic embroidery to a change in color. The great variety of embroidery motifs and the ability to design them yourself is reason enough to be excited.
