This is a quick overview,
detailed information is below

Taken from Bernina's website on the 830 (click to go to Product Page)
You will find all the
manuals, downloads, updates, Tutorials, FAQ's etc on that page.

Functionality and creativity

The BERNINA 830 was designed with two fundamental aims
in mind. The first was to create an easy-to-operate sewing machine
offering a high level level of comfort in use and an attractive simple
design. The second was to offer a wide range of features providing
maximum creative freedom for professional sewers, embroiderers, and
quilters. This ambition is recognizable in the design of all of the 830’s elements
– from the generously sized work area to the details of the menu
navigation, which allows fast, intuitive access to all of the main

Elegance and precision:
The unique functionality of the BERNINA 830 is cloaked in a
contemporary, elegant design which also impresses in terms of
aesthetics. The innovative combination of high-quality materials ensures
robustness and durability: a sophisticated designer piece that also
lives up to the highest demands made of a modern sewing machine. Let
yourself be inspired by the BERNINA 830’s design – experience the unique
functionality of a top-quality sewing and embroidery machine!

  • More room for creative sewing ideas
    With its generous dimensions, the BERNINA 830 offers significantly more
    working area than other BERNINA models –plenty of room for your
    creativity! Extended to 40 cm (15 in.), the BERNINA 830’s free arm
    leaves a generous 30 cm (12 in.) space to the right of the needle,
    letting you spread out your project and guide it comfortably. This
    generous design provides enough room even for large quilts, and ensures
    optimum vision and control when embroidering – with the BERNINA 830, the
    sewing experience is luxurious.

  • BERNINA Stitch Regulator for an even stitch pattern

    guaranteed with free-motion sewing and quilting: Thanks to BSR
    functionality, the BERNINA 830 offers high precision at any sewing
    speed, with the BERNINA Stitch Regulator enabling stitches of the exact
    same length in straight stitch or zigzag.

  • Drag-and-drop stitch combination

    With the
    BERNINA 830, it’s easy to combine stitches and adapt embroidery designs:
    just click on the desired design on the 830’s large color touchscreen
    with the touchpen, drag it over to the second design, and you’re done.
    This intuitive handling gives you the greatest possible freedom when
    combining different designs – especially advantageous when embroidering
    with the BERNINA 830.

  • Save time with the jumbo bobbin

    830’s jumbo bobbin offers 40 percent more thread capacity than the
    bobbins of other sewing-machine models. With this additional thread
    supply, the bobbin requires changing far less often, leaving you free to
    concentrate fully on your creative endeavors. Of course the BERNINA
    830’s lower-thread indicator shows how much thread remains on the
    bobbin, and when the next change is due. And changing the bobbin is also
    child’s play with the 830: once you’ve opened the hinged cover, a
    simple press of the finger is all that’s needed to remove the bobbin and
    insert a new one in its place.

  • Embroidery module included

    BERNINA 830
    users don’t need a PC connection when it comes to embroidering, since
    150 designs and ten fonts as well as the embroidery module itself are
    already included as standard. Thanks to the ArtLink Embroidery Software
    or the upgraded, optionally available BERNINA Embroidery Software V6,
    your creativity will now know no bounds. As an embroidery machine, the
    BERNINA 830 is second to none – as witnessed not only by its
    breathtaking embroidery speed of up to 1,000 stitches a minute, but
    also by its wide range of embroidery motifs and functions which can be
    accessed at the touch of a finger via the 830’s large color touchscreen:
    horizontal and vertical combining of embroidery designs, rotating,
    mirroring and resizing are all accomplished in a flash.

  • Creative embroidering with drag-and-drop editing

    innovative feature of the BERNINA 830 is the drag-and-drop function,
    which lets you position the embroidery design precisely and with
    consummate ease. Simply select the design with the touchpen, drag to the
    right place, and drop – and you’re done. Through this intuitive
    operation, the BERNINA 830 embroidery machine allows you the greatest
    possible creative freedom and reduces effort to a minimum, leaving your
    mind free for creative design. Especially helpful is the BERNINA 830’s
    built-in embroidery tutorial, which explains all the important functions
    on the touchscreen.

  • Maximum-precision endless embroidery

    designs are probably among the most demanding embroidery projects there
    are. The BERNINA 830 embroidery machine offers numerous functions that
    make endless embroidery easier, masterfully handling every challenge.
    Automatic size adjustment to the hoop as well as the use of reference
    points and placement aids offer maximum precision, so that even tricky
    designs placing the highest demands on the machine come out perfect
    every time. In addition, the BERNINA 830 embroidery machine offers a far
    larger embroidery area than comparable machines, thereby enabling
    successful embroidering even with extra-large embroidery projects.

    materials; we never make money on shipping but must cover our costs of
    packaging materials, time, and prepaid insurance. Sometimes we need to
    repackage items in larger boxes which puts them into a different
    shipping category. To avoid increasing your shipping costs, we may
    switch to a different shipping class (Parcel, Media, Flat Rate, First
    Class, etc) --  Please contact us if you need expedited shipping.
    your payment has cleared, most orders are processed and shipped out by
    the next business day (sent 1-2 Business days from the time of payment
    for the item). Although we package items with care, we are not
    responsible for items damaged during shipping. Items damaged during
    shipping are not returnable. If items are damaged during shipping,
    please keep all the contents and original packaging materials, and
    contact i-Cellar immediately so we can go through the claim process.

    We do not accept returns on
    Sewing / Embroidery Machine Auctions. They are fully
    serviced and 100% tested before auctioning by a
    certified mechanic. All machines are sold "AS-IS" and the
    items included are the ones in the photos only - if it's not in the
    photo, it's not included. Please be certain you know what you are

    Regardless, we do want you to be satisfied and if you feel we made a
    mistake please contact us within 3
    days (preferably the day you received the item) to discuss.
    In the unlikely event that the machine does not work, verify damage was
    not caused during shipment by inspecting the box. Save all shipping materials. If it was not damaged
    in shipment and we authorized a return, then ship it back to us
    and once we receive it and verify it is in the same condition as when
    we shipped it we will fix the problem and return it to you. The
    buyer is responsible for the cost of shipping the item back to us with
    insurance. Items damaged during shipping (either way) are not
    returnable, so make certain it is packaged correctly and is insured.

    We make our best effort to describe items exactly as they are,
    straightforward and honest. It's important to us that you are happy
    with your purchase. While we do as much research as possible when
    listing and pricing our items, we are not experts in most categories.
    If you are an expert with
    particular items we have listed and require or can provide more
    information, we would happily oblige and be grateful for you're
    knowledge. Please
    ask any questions before bidding. We
    are easily reachable, reasonable, and glad to help! You can contact
    i-Cellar at (412) 220-2272 or contact me through my website.

  • Item Conditions
    We do not attempt to clean our
    consigned items in any way.
    We might dust off delicate items, or give a soft dry wipe to smooth
    metal or stone, but will not risk affecting the item by an incorrect
    cleaning method. Since many of our items require specific methods of
    cleaning or restoration (antiques, collectibles, jewelry, etc), we
    leave that to consignors or successful bidders. Should you require us
    to "wipe off" or move a part of an item to see markings, we'll
    correspond with our consignor before doing so and if they give us
    permission, we will honor your request.

  • About Us
    i-Cellar is a consignment store located in Canonsburg PA (Pittsburgh

    their money in a reasonable amount of time) we try to expedite all
    phases of the selling process. This is why we ask you to pay promptly,
    and why we give you 3 days to verify your purchase after delivery.
    After this time payments are forwarded to the item's previous owner and
    we are no longer able to accept returns. Due to the long turn around
    time with international shipping, which can also be further delayed by
    customs, we are not able to accept returns from overseas. We use
