BERNINA Stitch Regulator

BERNINA stitch regulator function included

With the factory-installed BSR function of the BERNINA 560, upgrading the optional BERNINA stitch regulator (BSR) is possible at any time. The patented BSR is a high-tech presser foot that provides support when sewing freehand. With its recessed transporter, the BSR ensures that the stitch length always remains the exact same length, even if the material is not fed with an even speed. The BSR recognizes deviations and compensates for them so that freehand straight and zigzag stitches are always made with an identical stitch length.

Embroidery Module

Embroidery Module Optional

The BERNINA 560 is equipped with the embroidery function as standard and can be enhanced with the embroidery module. 70 embroidery patterns are already integrated into the BERNINA 560's software. Right from the very start, a vast selection of attractive embroidery are patterns for sophisticated embroidery available that you can easily and quickly select using the touchscreen. With this intelligent combination of sewing and embroidery functions on the BERNINA 560, you can design even more versatile sewing projects.
