The BERNINA 710 is among the new 7 Series line of sewing, quilting and embroidery machines that also features the BERNINA 780 and BERNINA 750 QE (Quilter's Edition). Each 7 Series machine includes an extended freearm area with 10 inches of space to the right of the needle and a practical extension table with ample space to hold larger sewing projects. The 7 Series is also equipped with a color touchscreen and the integrated BERNINA Dual Feed, which tames hard-to-manage and fine fabrics.
