Standard stitches, maximum stitch length 6mm, maximum stitch width 9mm, decorative sideways motion stitches sew wider than 9mm and vary depending on stitch.

Buttonholes are made easier with the built in measuring system. Place the button to the screen to determine the size after which the machine will automatically sew the correct size buttonhole.

Full colour touch screen - displays all stitches, making it easier to select and more intuitive to use. Any adjustments to the stitches are shown in real time. Mulit function dials for width and length adjustment, can be changed whilst sewing.

On screen help - Sewing consultant advises for best needle and settings for the fabric used. Built in tutorials offer onscreen support without you having to keep looking at your manual, making it user friendly.

Long arm - gives an inside space of 10"  (25.5cm) to the right of the needle.
Built in memory - allows you to create names and stitch combinations to personalise your sewing projects.
Personal memory (permanent and temporary) - default settings for stitches can be altered to your prefered settings and saved permenantly until you remove them. Any adjustments are saved even when the machine the switched off. Adjustments to stitch length, width and needle positions are temporary saved as you switch between different stitches. These settings are only saved whilst the machine is on, once switched off stitches will return to default settings.
History function - Up to 15 of your most recently used stitch patterns as well as all stitch alterations are saved in a seperate memory
Adaptive thread tension - ensures optimal thread tension during sewing and embroidery and helps you to achieve a perfect stitch quality. After manually adjusting (if required), the thread tension to the thread and fabric, the adaptive thread tension constantly checks the thread tension as you sew, adjusting it unobtrusively and automatically whenever necessary.
Jumbo bobbin - larger bobbin  that has 70 % more capicity. 
Automatic pressor foot lift - machine will rasie and lower the pressor foot automatically before and after sewing. The foot can hover leaving needle in the fabric so you can keep both hands on fabric, ideal for pivoting. Hover positions can be set to a prefered height.
Sideways motion - not only can the 790 Plus sew forwards and backwards, but also sideways. Fabric is moved from left to right creating stitches that are wider than 9mm. There are built in decorative sideways stitches which use sideways motion to stitch out or choose any stitch and control the direction it sews in. For example - select straight stitch and sew in a 45 degree angle, perfect for projects or dressmaking where access to certain area is restricted such as up a trouser leg.
Stitch Designer - create your own stitches by drawing your ideas onto the touch screen, at a touch of a button design is turned into stitches. As the 790 Plus has sideways motion stitches, create decorative stitches that are wider than the 9mm width, alternatively you can limit your creativity to just 9mm wide.  Built in stitches can be adjusted to create different effects.
Tapering function - the beginning and end of stitch patterns come to a point in four different basic angles which can also be defined. Great for creating border designs or labels.
Dual feed - built in walking foot system that with one action simply engages into the back of the dual feed feet. A range of feet are available (optional extras) that can be used with the dual feed. A standard dual feed foot comes with the machine.
Bernina Stitch Regulator (BSR) -  sophisticated sensor technology that monitors the speed at which the fabric moves and regulates the length of the stithces. For consistent stitch length when free motioning.
Foot pedal - with a heel tap function to bring the needle in or out of the fabric. One the 790 Plus this heel tap can be changed in settings to a different function.
