Check out Tiffany’s favorite features on the B 475 QE:

Automatic features save time

Automatic features save time

  • No more manual threading
  • Press a button to cut your thread
  • Save time for more creativity

Threads are cut automatically, or if you prefer, magically. Even the needle lifts leaving your hands free to keep on creating.

Keep your hands on the fabric

Keep your hands on the fabric

  • Hands-free sewing is reality
  • Hands are free to guide the fabric
  • Simultaneously raises/lowers presser foot and feed dog
The BERNINA Free Hand System lets you lift or lower the presser foot using only the knee lifter, allowing hands to guide your projects to bigger and better things.
Nice, easy perfect stitches

Nice, easy perfect stitches

  • Sew perfect stitches with 5.5 mm stitch width

Patchwork foot #37

  • Designed for straight-stitching
  • Ideal for sewing ¼" seam allowances
