No More Jump Stitches in Embroidery with the BERNINA 700

Say Goodbye to jump stitches with the BERNINA 700! Plus, Free Love Heart Embroidery Design!

Hello! I’m Lisa Archer, BERNINA Brand Ambassador and Owner of Pickle Pie Designs. I recently added a BERNINA 700 embroidery-only machine to my studio and I’m in love! This amazing machine is designed with an embroidery enthusiast’s most-wanted features in mind.BERNINA 700One of my favorite features is the ability to cut jump stitches. When activated, your BERNINA 700 will automatically cut every single jump stitch in your design, saving you tons of time. Think about how long it takes to neatly trim off jump threads in designs. Even when you do spend the time trimming jump threads, it can be difficult to trim off the entire jump stitch cleanly, and you get tiny threads sticking up because you can’t get close enough, even with sharp snips.

To demonstrate this wonderful feature, I created an embroidery design in my BERNINA Embroidery Software with a candlewicking border. Normally, I would have to trim each little jump stitch between the candlewicking stitches. Count how many there are… 39! It would take quite a while and a lot of precision cutting to get them all. What a pain!

  • This looks great. Can you tell me if I can do the same with my Bernina 200/730 machine or if not is it possible in Bernina Software V7. Thanks in advance. Hertha

    • Hi Hertha, unfortunately, this feature is not available on your machine but is available on other BERNINA machines; B 790 PLUS, B 880 PLUS, B 590 and B 500, or with the latest upgrade on some models.

      With BERNINA Software V7, you can set some stitch types to always trim jump stitches, but the candlewicking outline I used on this design will not work with this feature. You can use it for other stitch types, though, including fonts – after you break the design apart, go to Object properties, then click the Tie-on/tie-off to find the “Always Trim” option. I hope that helps!

    • Sorry, but this feature is not available on your machine. If you’re considering adding an embroidery machine to your studio, the B 700 is amazing, and you can use the embroidery module from your 830 with it!

    • I did the latest update for my 770QEE. I was thrilled to stitch out one beautiful label with the jump stitches automatically cut! Wonderful! However, it wasn’t planned. I then read that this was included in the update. A few days later I made another label the same way I made the last one – using my V7 software – but when I stitched it out I was unhappy that the jumps weren’t being cut. I didn’t do anything different that I’m aware of. My dealer thinks the jumps are only cut when using the fonts in the machine, not software. I have never used the machine fonts and yet I stitched one successful and beautiful label with NO jump stitches to cut. The label was created in my V7software. I have checked every setting in the software and machine. So dissappointed. Why is this not working? Any suggestions?

  • I just got my B700 and I’m checking out the many features. I noticed you used the #15 foot instead of the default #26 foot. Was there a reason for that?

    • Hello kittyv, you can get in touch with your BERNINA store for personal help with finding out if you have the latest firmware version on your BERNINA, or if you need to update the machine.

  • I have an 880 plus and a B590 and neither allow me to dial down to zero. One is the lowest option. Is there a new update that gives me this option?
    I love your step by step instructions. Extremely helpful. Thank you.

  • I have my upgraded to a 790plus. All of my jump stitches do not cut, despite having my settings set like yours – and the lowest I can set the cut length to is 1mm. I took a class at my local quilt shop and used their 790plus with oesd designs. Their machine also did not cut all of my jump stitches during class. Any suggestions?

  • I don’t see any responses to machines that do not go below 1 mm. This is also the case with me and my 790+. Surely this machine should cut jump stitches!

  • When I first got my B790+ it would cut the jump stitches, however it will not now. I’ve had it about a year and half. I’ve reset the length to 1 (it wouldn’t go any lower) and still no luck. Any new ideas?
