This exclusive convenient feature allows any sewing artist to take their craft to a whole new level. Endless embroidery automates and simplifies the process of creating and embroidering borders of beautiful embroidery. Simply touch the icon and set horizontal or vertical reference marks to stitch them effortlessly.
Regardless of how many duplicate designs exist in a larger embroidery design, most machines require you to change thread within each singular design as it is created. BERNINA's clever color resequencing feature streamlines the process by stitching out the same color for all duplicated designs in one pass. This process drastically reduces the number of times you need to change thread colors and saves you immeasurable time.
Importing Stitches into Embroidery
With the help of the BERNINA 830, you can transform any design idea into reality. This exceptional feature lets you import every single sewing stitch, including buttonholes, into any of your embroidery designs. No more “if onlys.” No more “I wish.” Just pure unleashed creativity ready for you to explore.
Automatic-Presser-Foot Lift, Thread Cutter and Jump Stitch Trims
The BERNINA 830 takes care of all the little details so you don't have to. The auto-presser-foot lift has three positions so you can choose and program the height of your presser-foot, letting you focus 100% on your creativity. The auto thread cutter can be programmed to cut your thread at the end of seams and even eliminates the need to hand clip those troublesome jump stitches.
Welcome to the world of perfect alignment, courtesy of the BERNINA 830's Absolute Check feature. Instead of regular check, which indicates the bounding box around a design, this outstanding feature allows you to simply touch the screen with your finger or TouchPen and the needle moves to an exact position on your embroidery project. You can also check the stitch location of any single stitch in even your most complex designs.
The BERNINA 830 really takes speed up a notch. It can produce a lightning-fast 1,000 stitches per minute while embroidering, and 1,100 while sewing: among the fastest speeds on the home sewing market. That means you'll save time and frustration of a machine that simply can't keep up. Plus, you have full precision with our convenient slide-speed control and can always rest assured even your widest decorative stitches will come out just right.
Our patented jumbo bobbin provides a generous 40% more thread capacity, so you spend more time creating and less time prepping. Plus, this innovative bobbin is incredibly easy to use. The hook swings out, the bobbin releases and pops out with a simple touch of a finger. And there's no need to remove your projects because our reloading system is conveniently located on the front of the machine.
The BERNINA Stitch Regulator
This technologically advanced but simple-to-use presser foot allows you to master free-motion sewing in no time at all. The BERNINA Stitch Regulator regulates the length of your straight and zigzag stitches, making them even and consistent, so you can focus on creating your design.
Exclusive Slide-On Table
This table's unique design provides ample space for your largest projects. Plus, it lets you transition from embroidery to sewing, without ever removing it.

This machine is VERY gently used, I was a bit intimidated by it when I bought it. I'm only selling this becauseI want to getan 830 LE (Limited Edition). Bernina released a LE version as a collectable of sorts. They are only making 4,000 of them. Buyers get to go on a retreat in Chicago loaded with workshops and classes. I want to go!! :-) So I am selling this one, to buy the 830LE. :-)
The 830 Sewing\Embroidery machine up for offer has the following information in memory. Please note again, I bought it in May of 2010 and was intimidated by it up until a month or so ago. Hence the low #'s on sewing time. There hasn't been anything wrong with it, and with under 5 hours of use, it doesn't require any kind of service or maintenance for quite some time. It's a gem, I promise.
Sewing Time - 39 minutes
Embroidery Time - 4 hrs, 13 minutes
Total Stitches: 147, 365
Selling on unfortunately voids all warranties on Bernina products, I checked. So I need to sell "AS IS", but I promise, the machine is absolutely flawless.
Shipping Information: (Unfortunately I will only ship to the US because I don't want to take the chance of something so precious being opened by Customs and not repackaged correctly) I have the original packaging directly from Bernina for this machine and the embroidery unit. Perfect packaging with every little groove made specifically for the machine. She WILL arrive safely. :-)
does not provide an option to set up an sale with more than one "package" to ship. So unfortunately, I can only set up the shipping cost to include the machine. When you win my sale I will calculate the shipping charge for the Embroidery Unit. The dimensions of the embroidery unit boxis 24 x 10 x 29 and weighs 23 pounds when packed up. You can go to usps website to calculate it prior to offerding if you like. But I will calculate it for you on your final invoice. I can also compare Fed Ex & UPS for the best rate if you like.
